Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 FroYo Firmware leaked ?
It should be available from 12:00 Amsterdam time, but it's only a pre-release version.
The official Samsung release is scheduled for September, and I for one will be waiting for that.
Agree.... This is an early Beta version and there will be items missing/to be changed.
As Geryatrix above says ~ Samsung will not be releasing the 'official Froyo' until late Aug/early Sep..... hopefully.
However, given Samsung's track record in not getting fixes out at all or on time (GPS to name but one) I'm hesitant in believing a firm date is upon us.
I am fighting the urge not to download (it's available now, BTW). I've become a bit too flash-happy over the past few weeks.
My sensible half tells me to wait until others have posted their experiences with Froyo alpha but my reckless half is beating him with a big stick.
Oh, the agony
I think that you'll find that the version available at the moment is the one that is not complete.
Er, I believe I already posted this news a couple of ours before this...
Use Skyfire for flash browsing. works for me
the 2.2 beta has no flash btw
Flash does work, requires installing the 10.1 apk from the Market and then enabling the plug-in within the browser, users with a clue are now confirming this...
I have just upgraded to 2.1 jm2 so, as this 2.2 is incomplete and very much in beta I think I will just hang on a bit till something a bit better comes out.
Can anyone verify if this update has any effect on the GPS?
I would never use a beta OS unless I was a tester.
it is reported that gps is working better than in all other versions, but however, network location is not working at all yet....
Anyone who actually flashed the ROM Verify the Situation with GPS?
Would be nice, currently my Galaxy is useless as a satnav.
just go to xda-developers.com forum and check the thread there, its around 50 pages long now...
can you link the thread? i can't find it lol
Android 2.2 Froyo with XXJP2 - xda-developers
Thanks for the link, I searched through all 50 pages and found these quotes from the forum regarding XXJP2 GPS
-I just saw that GPS in Maps was really bad
-GPS is worse
-GPS is still crap, but maybe a smiding faster than JP1
-GPS: Fastest gps fix i've ever seen, near instant in both Navigon and GPS Test.
So 1 person says the problem is fixed and 3 people say the problem is worse... I'm guessing it's little to no difference.
Do you need to be rooted to download this?
btw you can download anything without root...
but you dotn eave
Fools! Why are people judging their GPS based upon time to fix? Even I can get a fix in 8 seconds. What's needed is a stable lock!
Well I wouldn't go as far as using the word Fools Simon but I do agree wholeheartedly with you.
It means absolutely nothing, zero, zilch when you get a lock more or less straightaway.
As Simon says, it's when the signal (and for that it would be nice to see satellites with SNR's of lower than 20) follows you like a loving dog..... and not running off chasing a rabbit.
Agreed... I can get a lock in 20 seconds or so and if it was accurate and didn't drop out over and over, I would be happy...
For my part I have actually more problems getting the lock than sustaining it, although the "problem" just means that it usually takes far longer than 10 seconds to get the full lock, not that I can't get it at all. When I've gotten a good lock I stay at 5m accuracy the majority of the time, going up to 10m when it gets worse.
