    I recently tried to update my galaxy s to 2.2 but for some reason it failed and I was unable to reset the phone. So I sent it in for repair and got it back today. Unfortunately with version 2.1-update1.

    So my question to you guys who have version 2.2 is simply if it is worth the risk to try and update the phone again?

    Secondly, if I decide to go for it again is there anything I can do to avoid the same problem? I'm of course thinking about updating it on another computer but is there anything else I can do?

    Seems like this question is rather irrelevant right now since the download server in Sweden is down right now :(

    Go to windows start > run > and type "regedit"

    Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Samsung/Kies/DeviceDB/

    You will probably see a bunch of numbered keys (they look like folders) Find the key/folder that has strings that match your current firmware. So if you are on JPK look for that in the keys. If you have more than one galaxy S (it can happen) then match the imei with the phone you want to upgrade.

    Change the following values so they look like this:

    "SoftwareRevision"="I9000XXJF3/I9000SWC/I9000XXJF3/I9000XXJF3"
    "ProductCode"="GT-I9000HKDXEE"
    "HIDSWVER"="I9000XXJF3/I9000SWC/I9000XXJF3/I9000XXJF3"


    but samsung have put a block on it now
