Hey,

i Upgrade my phone with every new beta firmware so i can share a couple of things i learned about the fixes here.

Its getting freaking fast... trust me... the new one that came out yesterday (JM2) has not one lag as far as i can tell... the apps are opening without a delay (as far as i can see or feel it).

My GPS is working... living on the landside my GPS was never great but now its working with the samsung.

it will last more than a day... they have improved the energy management a lot.

You will get a Task Killer that shows the Apps that are using the most Memory or CPU in red if you start it.

Many minor fixes.


Samsung seems to be working really hard on this mobile device and they have released 5 Beta firmwares at least in this month... i do hope that one official update will hit the end user soon. Because they have improved this one a lot with the beta firmwares.

Sorry was on a holiday vacation.

Its fairly easy to upgrade.
eXa posted the Page were you can download the firmware and a tool called Odin. But the best FAQ that can help you a lot is on xda-developers. Heres the link:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=723596

I know that this is a lot of text but its easy. You start your phone with holding the home+lower sound and the power button and connect it to your pc. After this the Tool Odin will recognize it. Then you use the 3 files that you can download at samsung-firmware.webs.com and the 512.pit file.

Click on the Start button and thats it.

Heres the Information from the Topic from Darkstriker:

A.Flash Firmware using Odin.

Note: This will in (almost) all cases erase all your data and applications. It will NOT touch the internal or external SD card.

Requirements:
-Odin3 version 1.0 (Note: Odin should be on the system partition (the partition where windows is installed) to avoid possible issues)
-".PIT" file for the Samsung Galaxy S (Note: There are two versions of the .pit file. Firmwares prior to XXJG5 are reported to work with both .pit files, firmwares from and including XXJG5 require the file ending on 512.pit and need the repartition option checked, on the first time you use the 512.pit file!)
-USB cable
-Desired firmware package


Procedure:
1.Open ODIN. (And close Kies, if you have it open. It is important to have ODIN open BEFORE connection the phone via USB!)
2.Select the PDA/Modem/CSC/.PIT files in Odin. (.PIT and PDA are required. CSC and Modem are HIGHLY recommended. May be necessary depending on the PDA)
3.Remove the SD card and SIM card from the phone.
4.Turn the phone into the download mode by pressing and holding VolumeDown+Home+Power.
5.Connect your phone with your computer and wait until the drivers are installed.
6.If the drivers are installed, click Start.
7.The phone will be flashed and once it’s finished, it will boot up. (Do NOT disconnect the usb-cable, remove the battery or otherwise interrupt this process!)
8.You have successfully flashed your phone.


Remeber that you will lose warranty if you update it but you can always flash back to the stock ROM.

I haven't updated to Froyo because it is very buggy at the Moment, but the JM2 firmware works great for me.

They are beta releases that are "offically" what Samsung are working on and testing.

Finally this post got me to try flashing and I am glad I did. The JM2 firmware solved my GPS issues, the only bugging me with this phone. Thanks for the link and making it sound so simple. Because actually, it is that simple! Big Grin

Hm, a not so minor issue popped up after flashing. I can call allright and the GPS works wonders now. But I lost connection with the data network. I can only download apps via my wifi connection for example. Most likely a setting I am missing. Any thoughts on this?

Problem solved. Found the menu to apply the settings, thank you. Contacted my provider to get the settings, applied them and presto, fully back in business. And as I said before, glad I took the jump. Now about Froyo...hm...or maybe I should enjoy this success for a bit longer...  Big Grin

I was wondering if anyone from american has flashed these yet. on the samsung firmwar's page it says " If you come from America don't flash! (Ask for a firmware in the forums)"
Would it hurt your device..and if so, where can I find the American ones?
