Does the upgrade work using a 64 Bit machine running windows 7?
yeah, it does. I don't like that method though, i would just download the zip and apply it in recovery
That's all I did. Just DL'd the update.zip file, copied it to SD storage and applied it in recovery mode. Very easy.
No problems at all using win7 64 bit. I recommend using the samsung installer over the zip method to get the best froyo experience you can.
My froyo experience is pretty darn good with a Fresh DI18 and the update.zip method. Why do you think the installer method gives you a better experience?
For the same reason that if you visit the root forums you'll see people talking about wiping data and cache 3 or more times between each rom they apply. There are stray files that could be left over after a flash that can make things buggy sometimes. It doesn't happen to everyone but it does happen.
Just look at all of the problem threads starting to pop up...
I tried the 64bit and would freeze. Had to do 32
