    The only thing that made it fast is the z4root and oclf both in the market.
    Flash works spot on.

    Has anyone else had an upgrade for a UK Orange Galaxy S?

    I've still not had one so after reading this I rang Orange CS, they told me that there was no release for any Orange phones as yet, and they didn't have a date for when this might change.

    Hi,
    I have Orange. I am in the UK (Wales) and I have the new 2.2 OS. I had to get it through Kies. It worked like a dream.

    Typical CS nonsense.

    I gave up trying to get a straight answer from them last night and installed Froyo via Odin.

    Well, I just checked Kies and I still can't update my SGS on Orange UK.

    Curious to know if the people that already have the Froyo update... was your SGS a branded orange phone from orange themselves or stock unlocked one?

    Question for funksplutter: which ROM did you use? :\ I've been looking into going down that route myself, but there are a fair few to choose from. Is yours now stock android, or stock SGS froyo without any carrier branding?

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    think these guys don't have *orange branded* sgs. Maybe you guys who have upgraded purchased it from Carphonewarehouse? or Phones4U? Meaning it's unlocked and debranded.

    By any chance Lee69, do you know what Phone/PDA/CSC version it was running before the update? :(

    Checked Kies once again and there isn't anything there still... :\:thinking:

    I may go along to my local Orange shop today and maul someone in the balls.


    -Edit-
    It'd also be handy knowing what version your SGS is running now on stock orange? I might be able to trick KIES into updating to it via the reghack.

    thanks in advance.

    I just followed the guide here

    Use Odin To Upgrade Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000 To Android 2.2 Froyo

    to upgrade. Then I installed the one click lag fix and its like having a new phone, the experience is much much better than it was before upgrading.

    The process with Odin was pretty straight forward although I would suggest doing a factory reset of the phone before you start.

    Thanks Lee,

    However, what would be really, really helpful if you can just check the phone one last time!

    Bring the dial pad up, and key in the following number (where you'd normally enter a phone number)

    *#1234#

    As soon as you press the final hash, it will display a screen which lists three firmware versions..

    PDA:
    PHONE:
    CSC:

    you can just press the back button to get out of it. Can anyone with an orange branded SGS who has Froyo via kies WITHOUT a registry hack, please tell us what those three firmware numbers are for your new froyo builds. Thanks.:)

    Ahh thanks Lee, that's the standard unlocked UK version of Froyo... looks like Orange gave your mrs a unbranded SGS.

    Lucky! :(

    Just an update.. I just used the KIES reg hack to upgrade my Branded Orange UK phone from 2.1 to 2.2 (didn't even do a factory reset before or after) and it's tits. the GPS finds loads of sats now and logs on in (on average) 8-12 seconds. Locks on to about 7 as well I should add. Also loving the new features.

    I'm now using the Official Un-branded UK SGS Firmware (JPO and no crap Orange rubbish) and I'm a very happy bunny wish I did this months ago... just need to install the voodoo lagfix now.

    yes Lee your wife received a *non-branded* stock uk Froyo from Orange.

    thanks anyways.

    We can conclude for now that Orange have not (yet) dished out their version of Froyo.
