Help Still no 2.2 upgrade and 2.3 is knocking on the door?


Nov 6, 2010
Hello everyone,
I'm new here and I bought my Galaxy S around 4 months ago.
I live in Budapest and still don't have any upgrade to 2.2 yet via Kies, and I just heard about a 2.3 upgrade a couple of weeks ago coming up for the Galaxy S also.
Here's a screenshot of what I see on Kies when I attempt to upgrade:
When I check the firmware version on my phone, I read "2.1-update1", and still no sign of any upgrade to Froyo...
Thanks in advance for your response.
As far as I understand it Firmware release availability is more down to your carrier than to Samsung.
If I understand correctly, Google release the upgrade manufacturers make it work with their basic (unbranded) devices and then the carriers add their bloat ware and test it again, when they are happy it gets released to the customer.
So it could be that your carrier haven't/don't want to get it working with their network.

Didn't I mention that I was NEW here? And by that I mean new to the world of Android, Galaxy S, etc.

Sorry bud. :eek:

Basically just find the correct version for your phone from the link above and follow the instructions, I think you have to register to download them.

Any problems either ask here or try the xda-developers forum, they are usually pretty good there.

EDIT: also have a look at this, detailed how to guide.
