Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 Upgrade

gten if you wanna merge this with your thread its your call.
looks like were getting close.
Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 Upgrade, Android 3.0 Loom - Mobile and Wireless from eWeek
Samsung Electronics Oct. 15 unleashed the upgrade to Android 2.2, or Froyo, for its popular Samsung Galaxy S smartphone series.

Android 2.2 is now available via Samsung's Kies software upgrade program for the Verizon Wireless Samsung Fascinate, AT&T Samsung Captivate, Sprint Samsung Epic 4G and T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant handsets, all of which were launched with Android 2.1 this past summer. U.S. Cellular recently introduced the Mesmerize.

The Android 2.2 upgrade will come first in the Nordic region and roll out to other European markets, Southeast Asia, the Middle East Asia, North America and Africa, according to this Samsung mobile press release.

Android 2.2, which Google Android creator Andy Rubin launched to open source June 23 at Verizon Wireless' Motorola Droid X introduction, sports voice-controlled GPS through Google Maps Navigation and faster performance thanks to a JIT compiler.

Android 2.2 also supports Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and greater enterprise functionality thanks to enhanced support for Microsoft Exchange, as well as the ability to search Google, Translate, Wikipedia and Dictionary within the browser.

A cloud-to-device messaging API lets developers write apps that sync the phone with Google's servers to help transmit data for browser extensions such as Google Chrome to Phone.

Samsung's Galaxy S line has shipped more than 5 million units to date, thanks largely to the sleek design, which includes a 4-inch Super Amoled screen to provide quality viewing and access in light or dark environments.

EWEEK tested them all and found them enjoyable, albeit with some interesting carrier choices, such as Verizon's choice to pre-load the Fascinate with Microsoft's Bing search engine.

The Samsung Galaxy S line is the last batch of major Android smartphones to get Android 2.2 as Google prepares to launch Android 3.0 to open source soon.

That could come anyday; Google has optimized Android 3.0, or Gingerbread, for tablet computers. While tablets from Archos and the Samsung Galaxy Tab are loaded with Android 2.2, they will get the Android 3.0 bump when it is available.

Expect tablets from Dell, Motorola and LG to come with Gingerbread, whose minimum hardware requirements call for a 1 GHZ CPU, 512 MB of RAM and displays from 3.5 and higher.

Gingerbread will offer 1280760 resolution for devices with displays of 4 inches or more.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 Upgrade

Quick question from noob at Android flashing... when 2.2 does come, if you are on a custom ROM, can you just wait for it to be baked into a ROM and flash it, or do you have to flash the OEM update first, then re-root and reflash a new custom ROM with a 2.2 base?
