After so many delays and pull back’, the Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 update has started rolling out officially from today in the U.K. This piece of news was confirmed by Samsung UK tweet. The Android 2.2 update will continue until the end of November. However, the update won’t be an OTA (Over-The-Air) one.
Users who want to update their phone to Android 2.2 need to use the Samsung KIES software to do so. They can download the latest version of KIES from here.
Samsung had earlier released an official Android 2.2 update for the Galaxy S but the firmware was so buggy and slow that they had to pull it back. I have already flashed this new official firmware on my Galaxy S and I must say it’s great. The phone is smooth and there are no lags at all.
Hopefully, Samsung will roll out the Android 2.2 firmware update to other countries soon.
