Over at SDX-Developers, some interesting things are developing. It appears if you navigate over to Sprint’s Samsung Moment software update page that the long awaited Android 2.1 update may now be available. No official announcement has come from Sprint, but the file that can now be downloaded, while still listed as an older update, seems to actually be something brand new. Along with the file, the update documentation has been updated to show tomorrow’s date.


Here is the story from the person who first uncovered this:

I went to the sprint download site to reload what I thought was CL14 back on my Moment. After install, I noticed something was different with my phone. My phone read Firmware 2.1-update1, S:M900.8.OS.DE03, Kernel version 2.6.29, ECLAIR.DE03, HW version M900.8.0

Did sprint release 2.1?? If so, where’s the live wallpapers?

Other members over at SDX are confirming this to be true, though it is unclear whether it is a temporary mistake that will soon be taken down or if the update will be beginning in earnest. If you are a moment owner you may want to get in on this now, but signs are pointing towards Sprint making this one official tomorrow.
