I got fed up of waiting for the update, and now I'm no longer bothered, 1.5 is fine for me.
.. just wondering when this update will be available in India... is there anybody from India who has got this official update....
the only thing you can do is see if it's been put on the samsung site for india
chkd out the samsung india site ... its not even showing the phone.. hopeless... lets just wait with fingers crossed ... my hands are itching to get the official update...
... had gone to samsung service center in Mumbai .. they are saying update will be available in India by May 1st week... hope they r right....
hopefully it'll be that date for Europe too. samsungs customer service and after sales support is a joke!!
the uk date is up to t mobile
t mobile is not the only one delaying
Samsung i5700 getting Android 2.0
I've tryed to join the forum to tell them there not alone but im not with 02
Wow. you could probably make your posts more melodramatic if you included pictures...
In the meantime, thousands of i5700 users (including me) have ben using 2.1 for weeks.
LOL @ SAMSUNG CANADA. If you have a Galaxy Spica from Rogers Wireless, go ahead an odin it up yourself:
what a total and complete joke samsung are:
Samsung Delivers World of New Experiences With Upgraded Galaxy Spica SAMSUNG
I'm never gonna buy another Samsung product , they should sack their whole entire board!
It's funny because i linked them to their own press release hosted on samsung US ;D
I got tired of waiting too and I am glad I just went ahead and did this
Its been 10 days now and I've had no problems whatsoever. In fact things are better now ! Just backup your APN settings before you upgrade and whatever else you need to backup.
1. The new Unlock slider is exactly what I wanted.
2. Live Wallpapers rock.
3. Battery life has improved a bit ( depends on things you have running in the background of course)
4. Overall feel is much much better and a sense that things are faster. Lots of additional settings to make things smoother. You can control animation speed and effects.
5. Exchange Support is there BUT it doesn't support security policy enforcement and that rules out a majority of users who want ActiveSync on their Android. No worries for me. I use TouchDown for Android (its just $20 and is amazing !!).
6. New gallery is awesome !!! You can sync your Picasa photos as well.
7. Supports multiple Google accounts.
And a whole bunch of other minor things. Overall, its rock solid and easy on the eyes too once you install the LkMod pack
WORD of CAUTION: Follow every step of the guide as it is described especially if you've never used ODIN before.
UPDATED: For those interested, I was on Cupcake (I5700DDIL2) before I upgraded. Also there are problems with Windows 64-bit USB drivers. It didn't work for me and a whole bunch of others. I had to switch from my 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium laptop to another with Windows 7 32-Bit to get things working. This new upgrade contains the firmware for Europe and so you WILL lose your APN settings once you upgrade. I am sure a simple Google search will give you your APN settings for your region (in case you haven't backed it up)
Happy upgrading ! It's worth it !
nice guide you linked up... i used sameers guide (links somewhere in the thread).
the firmware i was able to install was DXJC4 (latest for asia according to the samsung firmwares website)... and i didnt get the live wallpapers nor the nexus one type gallery.
had a few problems at first since i installed the latest EU firmware... then i just repeated flashing for the latest asian firmware.
was live wallpapers included by default on the firmware posted on the tutorial you linked up?
Yes. BUT only when I used the LKMod add-on PDA package. The steps for that is also included ! The firmware itself doesn't have Live Wallpapers.
This is what showed up on samsung india website awesome atleast we can be sure that the update is coming..... yeahhhh...
This screenshot tells nothing new.
Norwegian website has been like that since 19.march, just like the update on top of the india one.
ive found this on Norwegian one but dont no what it says
Found this article at a Norwegian site today, claiming that the update is ready for download at NPS.
Oppgraderinger fra Samsung - Amobil.no
Still, I get the same messages as before. "Update not needed"
Getting very pathetic.
It's only a guide for how to uprade your phone. Remove SIM, put your phone in "error seeking mode" (?) and other things to do before upgrading. If you press "Sett i gang" - Start, they give you a link to NPS a version called 1.4.1 AD1.
I tried updating, but it didn't work.
I'm from Norway btw
EDIT: I found this on the Norwegian Samsung site, and it says that the upgrade is available in Norway from 19. april. Which is strange, seeing as I can't upgrade my phone from 1.5.
Attempted to try out restoring to factory defaults before updating as recommended in some threads. Still nothing.
it might be something to do with your network
How is it humanly possible to put out a message that we can update from monday when its impossible!
Hi! Thanks for much for pointing to that link. I managed to put all the things in the mod after I installed the latest firmware. I personally prefer gde instead of helix launcher. The cube effect is very cool. The only problem is is that sometimes I have small white lines in the pictures in the gallery. Do you have this with this mod? Thanks very much for your help.
the only thing is to contact samsung about it and ask them whats going on and if they have had any problems..at least it says you can update theres no change on the uk samsung site i still think the only ones that are going to be updated are the ones thats been branded the spica not the portal
