    I've Tweeted them to try and find out. If its in stores then testing has finished, and if testing has finished there's no reason it can't be deployed properly

    Well, they've DM'd me back and it doesn't look like the stores are doing the updates yet...

    Still, there's hope for an update (to the news, not the phone!) tomorrow...

    I've asked them if there delaying the update because somebody had posterd on the samsung forum that a t mobile employee had told him it was being delayed because they wanted to boost the sales of the pulse mini first

    them on twitter gave me no reply

    Megs: Yes, I was told that the magic is receiving the update the first week of June than after that the other compatible devices will get it as they're tested 1 by 1. Sounds gay to me, but thats what the guy from Tech Support said when I talked to Rogers.

    I'm fed up with all this waiting for something where never going to get unless I use odin

    I have an All-In-One Rar file with JD1 and odin. I'd be happy to put it somewhere for people to download.

    File is 85Mb.

    RAR content:-
    Odin Multi Downloader v4.03.exe

    All you need to do is run odin, and add the above tar's to it.

    PM me for rapidshare link.

    This firmware is for Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom Spica/Portal/Lite users ONLY.

    You install at your OWN risk.

    N.B. YOU WILL LOOSE PORTAL Branding, and phone will be shown as Galaxy Lite. You may also lose some default apps that came with your phone. Re-install these from Market place.

    Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast. :)

    Your Patience level is high, really appreciated.

    This is actually a pretty good idea. There's a Samsung service centre at the top of Princess Parkway, opposite the Fosters brewery in Manchester. I wonder if they'll do it for me...?

    2.1 for I5700 is already available in the philippines... just go to samsung service center in greenhills to have your firmware updated...

    Me too. Much Longer. Also a program called TODO which is part of the NPS installation requested internet access during the process - this never happened before. Just ends up with can't connect to server message so far I have tried 4 times and haven't had the usual "No upgrade necessary" message.

    Maybe something is happening - or maybe we are clutching at straws....:thinking::thinking:

    I think because it's actually checking. 1.3/4 simply goes straight to server error for me.

    i hope it is i nearly went the odin way with all this waiting

    the i5700 02 owners are still waiting as well they were promissed a update 2 weeks ago

    Same for me and dropping to a command prompt and running netstat while it's trying shows a connection to "unknown.level3.net" -

    So T Mobile/Samsung might be lining up the update server. Level3 supply all kinds of services for delivering content on behalf of large corps'.

    Here's hoping :)

    Can I get the address? Where exactly in Greenhills?

    Back to normal today - quickly goes to "No update necessary". Excitement over.

    I have decided to go down the Odin route next week if no positive news in the meantime.
  22. kingdave

    I'm with you on that. I got the ROM from Beercan (thank you very much!) so just going to wait for another week or so and if no news, I'll flash with that ROM.

    I have posted in the flashing guide thread about a problem I have with Odin that no one seems to have answered. I don't want to hijack this thread with my problem, but how do I get Odin to show details on the COM port bit? Mine is completely blank but Win 7 recognises that the phone is plugged in (it shows in device manager)

    I think I may have some bad news for UK users...

    I just called Samsung again on the off chance that they may have some more information that T-Mobile aren't telling us.

    I queried with them that a press release came out many weeks ago that said the update was out and that it would be rolled out to Germany first then the UK etc but the Phillipines have it, Norway has it, the Germans have it and so on and the advisor said that Samsung management were aware that the UK don't have it yet (other than on 3) but the update process for the UK is much more difficult than in Germany due to the way the networks in the UK work.

    She said the Germans have something called Home which prevents phones from working on one network only so its easy for the user to update the phone and for Samsung to roll it out.

    So I asked when the UK would get it and she said that nobody knows yet, but because of the differences between the UK and the rest of Europe, the update can only be done in the UK by an engineer and can't be done at home by a user!!

    I don't know how true this is (probably bollocks but you never know!) but if it is an engineer only update for the UK I'm definitely going down the Odin route.

    them from twitter t mobile said we would get the update through nps... I'm going to try the odin way soon as nobody knows what's going on like I said before I don't think the portal will get updated to 2.1 only the spica branded ones..if we do have send it off t mobile will probably charge for this service
