Samsung Epic 4G Android 2.2 FroYo Update Now Available
By on February 22nd, 2011

As reported earlier by us, Samsung has started rolling out the Android 2.2 FroYo update for the Sprint branded Epic 4G. Originally, the FroYo update was supposed to come in an OTA form. However, Samsung went ahead and released an exe file that will help Epic owners update their handset to Android 2.2.

The EB13 software build version is available in an exe form for Windows users, which will allow them to easily update their handset to FroYo, irrespective of the current firmware the handset is running on. For Mac owners, Samsung has an update.zip’ file which will only work with the DI18 software build or above.

However, users should keep in mind that updating via the above method will wipe their handset clean of all their data including contacts and SMS. Thus, users are advised to make backups of their important data present on the phone before proceeding with the firmware update. Epic 4G owners can download the update from here.

The Android 2.2 update for the Epic 4G will include support for Flash 10.1, ability to install apps in the SD card, better memory management, improved battery life, a kernel update and some bug fixes.
