First of all, I just got a Spica yesterday and I'm glad to join this forum! I bought my phone from Vodafone here in Romania (middle-eastern Europe). I have installed NPS 1.5 (the one leaked from Samsung, as older versions weren't able to detect my device without crashing.. plus, this one seems to work on Win7) but unfortunately it says "There is no upgrade necessary" when checking for updates for my device (or, even better, "Could not connect to server" xD). So, I have a few questions: 1) Is this update official? Sources I find on the Internet seem to indicate contrary versions of the answer to this question. 2) If it's official but not available in my country yet -- anything I can do besides wait or root? 3) Am I not getting the update because my phone was bought from Vodafone and thus the update would remove the network lock so they're not giving it to me at all? If yes, could I go to Vodafone and ask them to update my phone? 4) Anything else I should know? I don't want to root my device or at least leave that as my last option. The next session is for people like me who are trying to see if there's an update available for their Spica: 1) Download NPS 1.5 from here: http://box23.org/pub/7500/tools/NPS/New_PC_Studio_Install_1.5.0.AC4.exe (if link doesn't work just search for "NPS 1.5" or "New PC Studio 1.5" on google) 2) On your phone, go to Settings -> About phone -> Additional settings and UNCHECK (if checked) "Mass storage only". Took me a good few hours to figure this out and I haven't seen it written anywhere!! Only by doing this will NPS recognize your device as more than just an external storage device. 3) Connect your phone to your PC. Wait. Wait. Wait. "GT-i5700" should appear at some point in NPS. Click "Update Phone" (at the bottom right) and see what happens.
