Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread Update Leaks
By on June 11th, 2011

Samsung started rolling out the Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread update for the European Galaxy S handsets, during the middle of this month. The Gingerbread roll-out is not even complete all over the world, and the Android 2.3.4 firmware for the handset has leaked.

The folks over at SamFirmware.com have managed to get their hands on the leaked Android 2.3.4 firmware (XXJVP) for the Samsung Galaxy S, which carries a June 3 build date. The Android 2.3.4 update for the Nexus S brought video calling via Google Talk, and better battery consumption along with some bug fixes.

Sadly, the leaked Android 2.3.4 Galaxy S firmware does not include the latest Google Talk version, which means video chatting via the front cam is a no-go. The update also fixes the high battery drain caused by the Android System process in Android 2.3.3.

However, SGS owners who flashed the firmware on their handset report that the phone’s performance is blazing fast now. The phone averages around 1800 points in the Quadrant benchmark on the leaked firmware.

Hopefully, Samsung will officially release the Android 2.3.4 firmware for the Galaxy S soon, with the latest version of Google Talk with video chat support.

    Oh, (from Ton again) my phone is SSGS2 and the reason for wanting to roll back is because I have got European Rom flashed on my phone and can not send SMS out, not in a proper message anyway.
