Samsung Galaxy S: Android 2.2 Froyo Update – Release Date Imminent?

By Updated on

We have an update for those patiently waiting for the Android 2.2 Froyo update on the Samsung Galaxy S, and it’s particularly good news. It has been revealed that the source code for the device has now been released and is available to use.

As Phandroid reports, this isn’t necessarily a confirmation that the official Android 2.2 Froyo update is coming, but the release of the source code does mean that a unofficial Froyo ROM for the Galaxy S is likely to follow soon.

Considering the speed of which the XDA-Developers operate, we predict that a custom version of Froyo will be available very soon indeed. The best thing of all, is that these unofficial ROMs are often better than the official versions that manufacturers put out.

If you are a Galaxy S owner reading this, hang on in there – help is on the way.

  • TFM

    Uhh… XDA have had unofficial Froyo roms for the SGS for the last two months or so …

    The only difference is official source versus leaked roms.

    its free, an update for galaxy s owners. it was posted on opensource.samsung.com as was a factory rom file – I9000XXJPM. i have installed it and it has actually made my galaxy slower somehow. nicer look and better battery life, but at what cost?

    • matt

      How much slower? do u think its best to wait for the official finnished rom? if you are haveing trouble try the factory restore. Or just take it back to the shop and they may flash it for you
