do we know when/if samsung is going to release the source of the new kernel?
so gaosp can finish
for sure it will be AFTER they officially released a 1.6 based firmware, what nobody knows when this will be.
omfg - hate samsung :S
but thanks for the info
I think some people were saying that the 1.6 source would be released in April. I've got no source to back this up nor do I really believe it, but it's been said by some users.
There might be hope. (probably not )
i think this comes from a missinterpreted joke, someone sayed jokingly there where tree possible. release dates: april 1st 2010, april 1st 2011 or same day as duke nukem forever...
as far as i know samsung stated it would most likely come 1st quarter of 2010.
Nope, it was backed up. Check 9 and 10 pages of sticky Android 2.0 on Galaxy topic. Especially MichaelW's posts.
The last update I had from them was maybe first week of April. That's obviously gone. It might be soon, it might not.
I just wish they'd hurry up.
Samsung Mobile : Community
asked samsung about it ;-) We should watch this topic
never know when they are going to answer that :S
Let's hope for an answer soon.
If only they'd tell us something, anything, then we would know what to expect. I might end up flashing the 1.6 that was released not so long ago to my phone.
He posted a response
Let's hope o2 hurry Samsung up!
At least now we know that there's officially going to be an update to 1.6... Probably the last update but still, with the 1.6 sources GAOSP might become much better.
Now I guess we have to wait and see. Probably for a long time, it's Samsung.
wth, why the whole world has to wait for O2 UK to approve 1.6 firmware..! Stupid Samsung...
my contact hasnt heard of any potential update for 1.6, ill do some digging
believe it or not, in the past samsung have been quicker at releasing sources that htc
i'm pretty sure he was referring to getting the firmware released in the first place, before even getting to the sources
you could say the same for firware tbh
just samsung dont speak
Sadly we don't though. I remember Samsung's Italian facebook page promising updates that never came
edit; Lol just saw Andronix' thread below
true that - plus the firmwares that they release are more often than not quite bad
guys, please dont forget, leaked does not mean released, i know, the 1.5 firmwares were most bad, but looks like they tried hard to get a working donut out. lets see what job they finally did... and lets hope they open the sources yesterday or even faster...
well generally i wouldn't know which ones are official and which are leaked (i do know the donut ones so far are all leaks), because i couldn't even officially update mine
the sad thing is that italians obviously can update theiir phones officially as we speak, but we still don0t have an affirmative post from there...
However we do have an affirmative answer that Russians can update to 1.6 (JC6) via NPS, or so says informale.
actually later versions of 1.5 were excellent in comparison to the donut releases
True. IK5 is my favourite.
