NEWS: Update for the Samsung Galaxy S

Moderator (Retired)

A new maintenance release for the Samsung Galaxy S is now available for Vodafone customers. This is an Android platform update to 2.3 Gingerbread which introduces a number of fixes and improvements which include;

 

  • Ul Enhancements (simpler and slicker)
  • New Android Keyboard, with easy copy/paste feature
  • Improved Power Management
  • Multiple Camera Management (front and back)
  • The ability to switch the device to GSM (2G) only mode has been restored in this update.

How will you get the latest software?

 

This can be done manually by connecting your handset to your computer via USB and opening the Samsung KIES application. You will be prompted that an update is available and should then follow the onscreen instructions.

UPDATE:

 

Due to an issue with the Gingerbread update for the Samsung Galaxy S, its roll out has been temporarily suspended by Google. Unfortunately, this means the Vodafone variant is not currently available to download through KIES.

As there are no known performance issues with the Vodafone variant of the device, we are working with Samsung to reinstate the roll out as soon as possible. We know this is frustrating for those Vodafone customers who have not yet been able to update their device and are working hard to address the matter with Samsung.

UPDATE:

 

We've worked quickly to turn around testing since Samsung supplied the re-worked version of the Android 2.3 update for the Galaxy S and our technical team has now completed its approvals process.

The update is now with Samsung and Google and we will come back with an update on this thread once they've confirmed exactly when it will be made available to Vodafone customers.
