    Has anyone installed the update from Samsung for the Moment? stile65 posted asking if anyone had gotten into the bootloader i was looking into and saw the update hes talking about. but i found no info saying what the update actually does. i'm downloading the update right now using the PCstudio software that Silverexpress posted in the Tethering thread. i'll inform when the update is complete.

    The studio has two update options. One for the studio itself. And one for the phone. I think both where uptodate.

    This is what i get when i run the update on the PC. i'm unable to actually update because my battery is too low so i'm letting it charge. but to give people an idea of whats being updated.

    Hi,

    Today my Moment started to exhibit loss in data connection. I called Sprint Tech, and he stated that my profile needed to be update.

    He pushed the updates via cell network onto my phone. The only noticeble change was the data speed. I now get evd insteadof ev1 or ev2.

    Well my update failed as well. PC Studio directed me to go to recovery mode, but the phone seems to work just fine. I'll try it again later when I am home.

    After it sat for about 20 minutes I disconnected it, removed and resat the battery, then entered recovery mode by holding down volume down + camera + power. Message came up saying Downloading. I plugged it back in, the "update" went thru, and now all my apps are gone. Back to the drawing board.

    kjreisman have you noticed anything different since the "update" went thru?

    i just double checked to see if the update went thru for me and PCStudio is still saying that the update is still avail

    i spoke with samsung (1-888-987-4357). they said there is no update. stop trying to download stuff from PC Studio. if there were updates for the phone you'll get them in the notification bar and she doesn't know when/if updates will come out.

    It didn't really update anything - it set it all back to factory specs. Be sure to re-enable USB debugging.

    I guess we wait. Sprint sells this as having tethering capability, but so far it does not.

    Hm, the NPSAndroidCDMABinaryUpgrade.exe stops unexpectedly during the download of the update. Can anyone tell me what format it puts the update on the SD card as? Filename, size, etc, would be great. It looks like the updates are unsigned, so it's possible to get root through modifying the updates.

    So, being that I live in a major Metropolis (SF Bay Area) I just popped down to my local Sprint store for the much anticipated update. Yeah right.

    First of all I called 4 Sprint stores and got completely different answers at every point. One insisted that it could be done over-the-air, another said they had not heard of an update, still another said it wasn't out yet. The only real answer was "it's only available at a Sprint Authorized Repair Center", which is true, and guess what, in the entire SF Bay Area and surrounding cities, there are only 2 locations. So I called and made an reservation at the SF Center for an upgrade, which they only reserved a spot for me because I was coming from North Bay.

    Saturday: Went to the store, was immediately informed that the update would wipe out ALL data from the phone, "Did you back-up your files before coming" the Rep asked. "Why, no (jerk), because you ppl didn't bother to tell me that BEFORE I came all the way over.

    Fine. Most of my photos and such were on the SD card anyway.

    So, 30min later, I have a new update and none of my apps. 2 weeks later now, and I can't really find anything amazing about this fix. Yes the GPS works, like it's freakin supposed to, but I don't count that as anything magical. The screen still comes on for no reason at times, the apps still restart themselves despite Taskkilling them every few hours. The battery life seems to be WORSE than before.

    Sprint seriously needs to get their act together, both in releasing the update, and informing their workerbees WTH is going on, so that WE (the people that provide all of them with a paycheck) can use our phones like they are supposed to function. WHERE IS MY 2.1 !!! , and PLEASE make it not suck.
