Another leak has graced our interwebz, folks. This time, the Epic 4G is fighting to be the first US Galaxy S phone to be stepped up to Android 2.3. Sprint and Samsung are hammering away at the build and things seem to be falling into place. After the first leak was buggy to no end, another one came along and most of it was stable for everyday use. Today, yet another is headed our way – EF02.tar. And we’re hearing this isn’t even the latest and greatest out of the Samsung camp. Regardless, the build is in the hands of XDA and you know they’ll soon be doing some magical things with it. Follow along at XDA here, if you’d like. [Thanks Chad!]
