    Since samsung has officially announced the Gingerbread update for the Ace, my question is has anyone gotten that on their Kies yet?
    If you haven't tried yet, i'd urge you to try...
    P.S. I heard it's already out in the UK..

    1. Connect your phone to your PC and make sure it is connected to the internet..
    2. run kies.. if kies shows a message that an update is available for your phone.. the PDA and CSC numbers should show KP8 most probably if its a gingerbread update..
    3. after updating your firmware go to menu>settings>about phone and scroll down to see Build Number... If it says GINGERBREAD.XXKP8 or something like that then you've successfully updated your phone to gingerbread..

    I don't know much about it but i think some providers will give OTA updates (your phone will display a message saying the update is available)..

    Hi Pujitjuneja,

    How can you be so sure that South East Asia will be getting Gingerbread update before 25th/May? Samsung's press release did not mention any dates whatsoever in regards of Gingerbread update for any of the Galaxy series phones/tablets.

    i live in dubai..(middle east) and well i updated my ace to gingerbread... took about half an hour.
    Oh by the way, i havnt been able to check it out yet completely, so does the update have any bugs..??
    p.s its not sam firmware, its the official kies update

    That's my estimate.. because the press release said that the update will reach all regions by the end of may and taking 1 week margin i said it might be here till about 25th
    It's just an estimate.. Even the Samsung store doesn't know for sure when it will be available.
    P.S. Galaxy S has been provided with updates in almost all regions so we can expect the official update soon..

    Great ! so its out there.. Well you should mainly test your GPS its the most talked about Bug everywhere..
    It would be very helpful if you did a review of your update and posted it here (with screenshots if possible :) )
