Samsung Vibrant to Get Froyo Update Tomorrow
Posted January 20, 2011 at 06:00 pm by egzthunder1
XDA member jmerchant informed us earlier today that there is something coming. Something that will hit all Vibrant users in the “happy” spot. Well, that last sentence came out wrong, but basically this will make them really happy. After months of speculations and complaints against Samsung and T-Mobile, it seems that the version of the Galaxy S will finally get a taste of Froyo… not just a port, but rather the full fledged official stock ROM. Vibrant users have been screaming for this pretty much since the release of the device as this OS release is supposed to come loaded with fixes to ensure that these devices perform in the way they were advertised to do so. As a little background, the device has had several issues including major lag, GPS issues, speed problems, and much more. As with any carrier/manufacturer update that we have seen coming out of every single player in the smartphone industry, the new update will likely come with new locks in place, to prevent rooting and such. To that I say, “developers…. start your engines!”
Do you think that this is happening for real? or maybe this is just an unfounded rumor like the many that have surfaced in the past. Leave us your thoughts and more importantly, let us know if you get the update.
