New Gingerbread Update for Samsung Galaxy S Leaks, Available to Download Now!

Yup, despite Sammy’s apparent inability to roll out Froyo updates on time, download links have popped up all over the internet this week, which provide access to a leaked official Gingerbread update to the I9000 model of its Galaxy S family.

This may not be the first Gingerbread update to have been leaked for the device but the release is great news for developers and owners of the device alike, as it means that Android 2.3.3 has been tailored by Samsung specifically for its phones and that the update should roll out to all devices shortly.

Although it seems that the ROM is yet to be rooted, XDA member iammodo has kindly made it available to us by providing a download link in this thread. If you’d like to try it out for yourself, don’t forget that the package also includes bootloaders and has not yet been officially endorsed by Samsung itself.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
