It was just a few days ago that Samsung started rolling out the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Galaxy S handsets in some regions of Europe. The company even released the Gingerbread source code, soon after.
Vodafone U.K. also started rolling out the update for the Galaxy S handsets just a couple of days ago. However, reports are flying in that Vodafone has now pulled back the Gingerbread update.
The reason cited by Vodafone for the update being pulled back is that the update has been suspended by Google. However, one of the most popular developers over at Galaxy S modding scene – supercurio – states something else.
He states that the update was pulled back because the Gingerbread update released by Vodafone U.K.was not the final build. The update was not supposed to be released by Vodafone U.K., but the carrier still pulled the plug and released the update.
Hopefully, Vodafone U.K. will get its act together and soon release the final build of Gingerbread update for the Vodafone branded Galaxy S handsets in the U.K.
Readers should not blame Samsung for this update being pulled back. The main culprit is Vodafone U.K, who released the update without any confirmation from Sammy.
