    The SDK image is indeed using 2.6.29 though. The AOSP source is not out yet, which will use 2.6.32.

    and that, my friend, i believe makes all the difference in the world. i already gave up on seeing an official update, so when i finally get bored with 1.5 and 2.2 gets ported unofficially, i'm going for it. i was always against unofficial updates, but my friend who owns a G1 treated himself to a 2.1 and is more than happy with it

    Maybe misreading this, but I guess I wasn't clear, the mytouch has 192mb ram same as our galaxy. So it is possible for i7500 to get an official 2.2 update. We just have a better camera ^^

    yeah! At worst because the specs are so similar, we can have a really good unofficial version ^^

    they're identical at specs that are critical in order to upgrade (ram and cpu), moreover galaxy has 8GB of internal memory, that's more than nexus1, milestone, hero, spica and some other phones put together! this is just unbelievable that we still don't have 2.1 at least

    edit
    let me correct myself: galaxy has more internal memory than xperia x10, htc desire, htc wildfire, motorola milestone, nexus1, htc legend, samsung i5700 spica, htc hero, htc magic, acer liquid e, acer liquid, samsung i6500, htc g1 and samsung behold 2 put together, but i guess that means nothing to samsung. i hope with all my heart that galaxy s sells extremely poorly, that samsung will loose a ton of money because of this and that many people have read about galaxy being stuck at 1.5 and will be afraid of getting a samsung phone because of potential lack of support

    Main improvement on 2.2 is speedup for non-native apps, that's like icing on the cake. I'm more looking forward to 2.1, its multi-touch feature is the bare minimum for a smartphone nowadays

    The 3G wireless router function works well for me.

    Internal memory =/= RAM memory

    The 8Gb of internal memory does us no good as the RAM memory ( 192Mb ) is the problem on the galaxy, same as the slow processor is.

    Don't know why ur so upset because internal memory has nothing to do with the lack of 2.1 on our phones.

    this sounds good tho'

    that's pretty much a confirmation that 192 megs of ram is enough to run froyo
    and obviously with the new jit compiler, cpu shouldn't be a problem either, it's just up to samsung (*sigh*) to either do froyo or release the necessary sources/drives for drakaz & co. to do it for them

    i know that dude, i'm just showing how galaxy is way better only in that aspect. and lots of internal memory makes it possible for an OTA update, which will of course never come

    According to SamsungFirmwares:

    As this guy seems to have links to Samsung I think it's a 100% no to getting any new updates.

    Honestly, this can be done. I mean my old HTC Touch CDMA *is* running 2.1 on a custom .25 kernel built by a fantastic guy in New Zealand (look at the Touch CDMA forum on XDA for the awesomeness of a community that has really breathed new life into a phone long past it's "usable" lifetime), so I see no reason that we can't pull things together and have 2.2 running on this beast in a bit of time. I mean, we'll need more that just Drakaz doing the work here and will need to find a way to get/build kernel modules for some of the proprietary hardware that Samsung is using (probably the touchscreen and camera of the top of my head) unless they have folded it all into the offical .29 kernel they built. But I'm very hopeful for a future for my Galaxy. Mostly cause I know that I'm stuck with it for the next 2.5 years :)

    Hey wtf, T-Mobile's mytouch 3g (aka htc magic 32a) has 256mb, you've mistaked it with Vodafone's htc magic (32b version) which indeed has 192 mb as galaxy. The only Androphones with 192 MB RAM are Galaxy i7500, htc g1/dream, htc magic 32b (Vodafone) (not sure about chinese noname phones, there could be one too, but who cares).

    btw it's funny to see the words "no phones left behind" coming out from the network that sells behold 2

    Tmobiles mytouch 3g only switched to the 288mb ram of the 32A in FEB 2010, so unless they ve put a disclaimer they are only updating the version 1.2 of the mytouch 3g, which i havent seen anywhere, then to me it reads as if they are froyo'ing all mytouch 3g's.

    As for the behold 2, it has 320mb of ram, afaik.
