    If I were to want to upload some firmware, where would be the best place to do so? Looked at rapidshare but it seems to be quite limited for free accounts, thanks A.

    Great, so IK4 is finally out.
    Can someone share their experience with this latest firmware?

    Sorry yes, didn't realise it wasn't out. I've deleted my post and would appreciate if you'd edit the link out of yours?

    I was only asking,

    So is it official firmware? what country was it from?

    This is not an official forum and most links are to firmware that is not out in certain countries yet,

    Just wondering how we can get hold of more in the future!

    hehe, sorry, multitasking! Must Drink More Caffeine!

    OK it's the UK release with the O2 CSC (if that floats your boat?) as for any good, well the Galaxy is my tertiary phone really so who knows - it powers up and makes phone calls which is working in my book, but I'll be interested to hear (and I really hope) it's an improvement on II5 which I found a bit sluggish.

    Remember to do a hard reset after updating won't you.

    Waiting for input from those brave ppl who dare to Odin that thing up before I'll do it myself. Is it worth it, any bugs fixed or new functionalities?

    did you get this from FUS?
    if this is official o2 firmware im going to speak to my contact and find out what they have apprently tried to fix or change.
    I know a firmware was going to come out this month but it was a different csc number and all it changed was the stock wall paper lol

    Had the same error. You just have to try a couple of times. Takes a while too before it's all downloaded. Having it now and will flash it with Odin in a minute to see what happens.

    Edit: ok so there's a different boot image, no more Android just a blinking Samsung sign and a new keyboard which I think Samsung has built in. No further differences as far as I can tell right now.

    I remember someone posting recently about sources of this new firmware and it was mentioned there could be some improvement to unlock button performance issues.

    Under Settings->Mobile Networks appears a new option called "Dial up Networks" that was not previously. Anyone knows what this could be for?

    Samsung custom keyboard is a total disaster. Judging by the screenshots, they've put back the original Android kbd as an option.

    I just put the new firmware, everything went well, as expected.

    I noticed improvements in performance and unlock button, I noticed also that already brings more dictionaries and a new keyboard.

    Anybody know specifically what were the improvements, without being the most obvious? Is there any log somewhere?
