The wait is finally over. If you haven’t already jumped the gun and grabbed it up last night before Sprint yanked it down, then you can bet that you’ll have all the chances in the world here: Sprint’s officially distributed the Android 2.1 update to every Samsung Moment owner on their official support site.


You can head over there now for a PDF file you’ll want to look at regarding how to update the phone (it includes instructions for backing up your data and installing the new update as it’ll wipe your phone clean). You can also find the other files you’ll  need to go ahead and update. As usual, if you’re not on a Windows-based machine (or aren’t dualbooting on your Mac) then you’ll need to get this done at a Sprint store or find someone with a Windows machine that can help you.
