    Android 2.1 came out in January 2010. We got the first experimental 2.1 firmwares on the Spica end of Feb. Expect something late June/July.

    I read that they consider the i5700 too old. Not sure why though as it's only a minor update.

    Right, saw that in another forum too. I honestly don't consider this phone old at all. Maybe we should start a petition to get 2.2 for the Spica.

    How can the phone be too old when it is not even a year old and hardware is good enough to support it. the whole point of going for an android is that we can keep getting os updates. It would really suck if we cannot do more than 1 update. Samsung should support a phone for atleast 2 year or else what is the point buying such costly phones if it supports only one upgrade. We should petition and get 2.2.

    if someone can post a petition link it would be great.

    No Froyo for us i guess :(.... afterall so many new models coming through....also our RAM/ROM both are limited....and also if we get 2.2....i m sure the i7500 owners would demand 2.2 also!!...so cleaver Samsung would ditch us...i just hope that they gives us the PROPER 2.1 version with better drivers...so atleast we can play our games :)

    Signed. It's not that we're crying foul too early--we're just being proactive.

    Plus Samsung is known for abandoning FW updates soon after their phones hit the market. I think the reason they came out with a 2.1 update is because they promised everyone that it will come out. They didn't really say anything about 2.2 so...
  13. According to samsung-firmware.webs.com, samsung is testing froyo 2.2 upgrade for spica i5700.

    So... fingers-crossed ! :D

    Where did u hear that ? Samsung-firmware.webs.com I believe is not official. Any official word on this ? I'll be very glad if it happens but to be frank I doubt there will be an official Froyo for Spica

    Why won't we get 2.2. Simple SAMSUNG IS SHIT!! I'm never buying Samsung again. Ever. Not TVs, nothing. There is STILL no 2.1 update. 3D graphics don't work on the Spica. Shit phone. Shit company.

    goomba - Leshak is trying to make a 2.2 version for the spica.

    This is what he's got going so far...

    Keys (but for unlock use "turn on/off" key!)
    GSM - (no sound yet), but you call , and send/recv SMS
    GPRS/EDGE/3G (you can add your APNs manualy)
    SD card / USB Mass Storage (thanks to mik_os)
    Wifi (thanks to golecpch)
    Google services (tested: GMail, Market, Contacts, Calendar)

    Don't work:
    SD card

    For a work in progress that's pretty awesome. If he can get it running completely and stable I'm gonna upgrade. I like his Samdroid mod since I don't have all that stupid Rogers bloat that I don't need.
