Android Froyo Update for Samsung Galaxy S Available in Malaysia

For Samsung Galaxy S users in Malaysia, in case you are not aware, Android 2.2 (Froyo) update has been available for download. You’ll have to upgrade your Samsung Kies to the latest version before you can see the update message “pop up” on the Kies interface.

Don’t forget to backup everything to your external SD card before upgrading. So what are you waiting for? Hehe

      Hi there,

      It depends on the version of your phone and not the sim card or telco that you have subscribed to.

      PDA:JM2 / PHONE:JM1 / CSC:JM2 should be UK Android 2.1 version.

      Have you upgraded to the latest version of Kies?

    Hi KeeMan thanks for the update, this is certainly an exciting time for Samsung Galaxy S users!

    Have you upgraded your phone, and did you encounter any problems?

    Hi Keeman,

    Thanks for you information as I have been waiting eagerly to update available in Malaysia for my Galaxy and also thanks to Adino – great steps by steps.

    Just want to check with you all, after the upgrade i do encounter some changes below:-
    1) Less sensitive screen touch
    2) RAM had indicates 304 compared to 326 in Ecliar – all the while i tot it is 512??
    3) More screen lags – slow response after item selected

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi KeeMan,
    After my upgrade, the DioPen input didn’t seem to respond to my PinYin. Any idea what happen and most important – how to fix?

    Thanks in advance.

  9. Adino says:

    I’ve just updated to firmware 2.2.1, and I’m happy to report the lag is gone, and the available RAM has increased to 339MB! As usual I’ve prepared step-by-step instructions at my blog

    Oops sorry I was mistaken about the RAM, it’s still at 304MB 🙁
