If Samsung don't ever provide updated firmware, what would be needed for the community to take on the job of keeping up to date with Android releases? I'm mostly happy with my Galaxy as it is. Yer, there's a few gripes here and there, but in general it's good enough. I did however buy into the whole Android thing thinking the firmware would be kept up to date. I mean I thought that was the whole point with this stuff. Google do the heavy lifting and Samsung roll it up and ship out a new ROM. What's the sense in an open OS, that gets crippled if the manufacturer won't support it. Grrrrrrrrr What would be required to let the community keep up to date with Android releases? Is it just hardware drivers, or is there more to it than that? What are the chances that if Samsung won't step up and support their device, that they would release any code required for the community to take it on? Lack of support/updates, is more annoying to me than the actual gripes I have with the phone. Even if the phone was perfect, I'd still be pissed at no updates, as that was the reason for me buying an Android handset. I wanted a gadget to mess with as much as to use it as a phone. I guess there is still a chance that Samsung will update the firmware, but the lack of communication from them isn't filling me with much confidence. It's a poor show from such a large company.
