    The only update that was officially announced was the update about the new 3g Push-to-talk service that will be coming to select smartphones on Sprint and Boost.

    I just went to re-download the samsung source from the opensource website and saw this

    [​IMG]

    Samsung added an entry for an update called FC29
    If you look at the release notes, they update the gallery, a BUNCH of APKs and from what I can see a bunch of drivers, too.
    Maybe Samsung has been listening and finally pushed an update to fix the screen??

    Note: This new source specifically says, for Boost Mobile, there isn't one posted for the Sprint version of the phone yet, but have any of you guys received an alert for an update??

    Note 2; just like LG Marquee, this update may make the phone unrootable, so before compiling your own be sure to create a backup.

    Go here:
    SPH-M930

    or if that doesnt work go to https://opensource.samsung.com and in the search bar type in "SPH-M930" (without quotes of course)

    I'm downloading it right now

    edit: please remember that this is only a link to the source, to be able to build it you need to have a build environment set up, but the release notes do list quite a few major changes

    Where did u find the release note?
    Looks like this update will start rolling out in a couple weeks, sweet lets hope they killed the touch screen bug. Yeah we got minor fixes for it but its better when you kill it from the source.

    Good eye! I didn't catch that, I am trying to get the "make-setupfiles.sh," "unzip-files.sh" and "vender-setup.sh" for this phone so I can compile this rom, do you

    It depends, if our one click root doesnt work on 2.3.6 someones gonna have to find another exploit. Until another exploit is found you can allways odin to a stock root 2.3.4 ROM for the Ultra.

    No go to settings about phone and system updates "i think lol dont have my phone". The OS update is rolled out in batches meaning that not everyone will get it at the same time. Some people can start getting it as early as the day when Samsung decides to roll it out. Some people might not get it that early it could be weeks or months believe it or not. Not many people dont have the Ultra compared to the galaxy prevail so we should get the updates within days or weeks apart from each other.

    Once someone has the update file, we can make a pre-rooted odin package with the update coming with root and just supplying it via odin.
    It's easy :)

    Remember what happened on the Marquee when their update hit and wiped out their root. I think i have the only Marquee with root on the latest firmware (that was achieved by accident). If i am correct the updated firmware for the Prevail wiped out their root too. Beware the updates! =-O

    Edit: I am not saying that someone should not update their firmware, but realize that it could be a point of no return. I learned this the hard way with the LG Marquee (another reason to read through threads BEFORE you update). :'(

    Nice, I still rather stick to your ROM than deal with an update. At least I know that will work without having to go through ODIN. ;)

    The ROM will automatically be updated to the newest version as soon as we get to files so we can start working on it. we should have it fully running on 2.3.6 within 2 weeks after Samsung pushes out the update depending on how many days after we get root for 2.3.6. So you wont have to worry about updating your self.

FINALLYYYYYYYYYYY but wait, its not over till the fat lady sings. we gotta test it our selves when we get it. Heres a list of changes at Bob's Github
