Samsung Galaxy S 4G Gets Leaked Gingerbread Build

A day after a pair of Android 2.3.3 builds leaked for the Samsung Captivate on AT&T, T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S 4G has received its very own taste of Gingerbread. The new build has already been rooted, with success coming in the battery life department. The new update combined with root and minus pre-installed bloatware has equated to 50 percent better battery life, according to members of XDA’s developer forums. You can find the download and instructions to do the same there as well. Follow the XDA source link below.

      The MT4G Gingerbread build has already leaked, you should google it. Now as for releasing the official version you’ll have to ask HTC and T-Mobile about that.

        Sorry but are you saying a GB build that I dont have to root to get?

        • Guest

          You have to root in order to apply that which is not as simple as  a leaked build you can simply do via downloading and installing via your SD card.

    Here’s hoping the official update comes sooner than later. I had to endure this waiting game with my old HTC Hero and 2.1…

    Pay no attention to the fact that the htc EVO 4G got it’s Gingerbread last month. Move along…

    Samsung excuse makers in 3, 2, 1…

      It didnt get it last month. It is rolling out now. A month ago? must be another sprint fanboy. Also the EVO has been out for over a year this phone was only released a few months ago.

      UniteUS = quite being a troll and posting the same useless crap on all Samsung news feeds.  I have the Evo and 2.3 was released 9 days ago, in June. STFU.

    I updated my phone with Gingerbread 2.3.3 via Odin with no problem. However I am now unable to mount my SD card on my computer. Also my SD card doesn’t show up in Astro file manager either. Can anyone tell me what do I need to do to fix this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Guys,I was able to resolve my problem by formatting my SD card both on my PC and again on my phone. I also re-installed the usb drivers and then remounted my phone. You may have to restart your computer and reboot your phone before the changes will take effect as I had to attempt to mount my phone several times before it finally worked. Perhaps if I had restarted my PC and rebooted my phone after I had re-installed the usb drivers and formatted my SD card, it would have worked on my first retry. Hopefully this will help someone else.
