    The 22nd sounds plausible, given the current load is set to finish testing on the 15th.

    And yet, the title of this thread is stated as fact :D "Fascinate getting Froyo Feb. 22nd" . Perhaps a "?" in the title might have made the case better? ;)

    Decent point there. No one knows when the real OTA drops however, the fact that the devs were allowed to release the rom and radio today to me suggests its out for mass testing with VZW and this suggests an OTA is likely just weeks away.

    I directly contacted the samsung customer service in korea. At least they answered me back, but still they don't say exactly when so it doesn't really help. Here's the email I got and translation anyway.

    고객님, 안녕하세요. 삼성전자 애니콜입니다.
    Hello customer, this is samsung anycall.

    먼저 해외에서도 삼성전자 애니콜에 대한 고객님의 관심과 사랑에 감사드립니다.
    First we would like to thank you for your interest from oversea.

    현재 미주향 GalaxyS Froyo S/W 가 해당 이동통신 사업자 측으로 전달이 된 상태이며,
    As of now, the GalaxyS Froyo S/W (software, I think) for Americas has been transfered to the provider,

    사업자 검증이 완료되면 바로 업그레이드 시작이 될 것입니다.
    and once the provider validates it, they will immediately begin the upgrade.

    업그레이드가 늦어지게 되어 대단히 죄송하며, 해외 고객님들에게도 양질의 서비스가 제공될 수 있도록 더욱 노력하겠습니다.
    We apologize for the delay, and we will continue our effort to satisfy our customers in overseas.

    감사합니다.
    Thank you.

    So-when we get 2.2 will we have to reinstall all of our apps, email settings etc... or will that be saved and the system just updated?

    If you get the OTA, everything will stay intact.

    I'm not saying that this IS going to happen. But we are getting OTA 2.2 Feb 22nd. Just a thought that I heard from a little person who I don't actually know :rolleyes:

    idk, im pretty content for the moment. In the last 3 weeks we've gotten random not named froyo, dl30, eb01, eb01 radio, voodoo, aosp with .32, aosp with .32 voodoo, a bunch of mods/themes and at some point 2.2 source for custom kernels

    gingerbread when it comes will be nice, til then im satisfied (kinda)

    Agreed, there is a difference between good and good enough. Honestly we might never feel anything is good enough as we'll always want more, such is nature. But we should be content and realize what we do have is good. Not sure what else we could ask for really. Actually thats not true. But certainly I do appreciate where we are now

    That's outbound calling with Google Talk. Google Voice has always been free, since it was GrandCentral.

    Well, I successfully got the new EB01 Froyo going on my wife's new fascinate I got her for Valentine's day. WOW is it running great.

    Tried to put it on my Fascinate and now I'm in force close hell. Can't seem to do anything to resurrect my phone. It is usable with only intermittent force closes if I go back to stock through Odin, but no amount of futzing around will get me stable in Froyo on my Fascinate. You know, it's all because I decided to follow the directions ...

    Let me explain:

    Me, being my daring self, followed only the parts of the main thread here that I thought were important:

    [EB01 WALKTHROUGHS] Rooting, Clockwork, Voodoo, Stock and Custom ROM, Battery, etc - xda-developers

    I actually booted into Froyo without a hitch or a single force close. I didn't redo the kernals or upgrade my CWM. But while using my phone, I decided it couldn't hurt, so I went ahead and did it. It successfully replaced my green CWM with the red one. Then my phone went to hell.

    In the Samsung recovery utils I get the following message every time, regardless of kernal or CWM version installed:

    E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1

    Any ideas? If I go back to the green and do this froyo leak, are my chances better? Or can I even do that??? Also, my wife's has the red CWM on it and hers runs just wonderfully. Boy is it a perfect phone, and I'm excited as crazy that she'll be happy with it.

    But my phone is pissing me off something fierce!

    WAHAHAHAHA!!!! I think I'm in business!!!

    This thread here helped me out a LOT:

    [HOWTO] Completely Remove Voodoo Lagfix - xda-developers

    Anyways, looks as if the EB01 Froyo leak is going to work GREAT on both my wife's new Fascinate and mine. Just took a lot more work on mine. Methinks it was because of the Voodoo kernels.

    After using the new EB01 leak with the recently updated ADW.Launcher (now superior in several ways to Launcher Pro Plus, in addition to being free...), I have come to one conclusion:

    This Froyo build, even without a superclean ROM, is FAST.

    Not just fast, but HOLY CRAP BATMAN fast. This is truly the Froyo we've all been waiting for. Haven't tested absolutely everything yet, but so far what I have used works GREAT. Testing now on two Fascinates. But I'm getting tired and need some sleep.. Whew. This phone never ceases to amaze me, and now with Froyo, even more so.
