Ok, so I learned from Samsung today that I can get the Gingerbread update via manual flashing from the Samsung Service Center in a mall here. Now I am wondering, since AFAIK an update will wipe everything on the phone, but the SD card would be untouched. Would this be the same for phones with inbuilt storage? My phone has 1.5gb storage which is read as an SD card by apps, instead of reading the external SD card. I was hoping to be able to keep this safe, so I can move my apps from my phone memory for apps to this memory so that their save states would not be wiped. EDIT: I just realized, 1-click root is available for Galaxy SL. I've never rooted my phone yet, but I think I can just root, back-up, unroot, take to service and then root and restore. Would that be feasible?
