[Update: Feb 21. Rollout Official] Epic 4G Froyo Source Code Finally Publicized


It’s been a long wait, hasn’t it? We’ve been waiting for official word from either Sprint or Samsung on the upgrade to Android 2.2 for the Samsung Epic 4G. While today’s publishing of build EB13’s source code isn’t exactly an over the air upgrade, it tells us we’re as close as close can be. And not only that – wonderful developers at XDA can start making ROMs based on it. All is well in that corner of the Galaxy S world, it seems. Now let’s try to get folks on T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon situated. [via XDA, Thanks Ninja!]

[Update]: And we’ve now got confirmation from Sprint themselves. An admin on their forum says to expect this update starting February 21st, though you may have to wait from anytime between then and the 25th to actually get it as it’ll be a staggered process. Go ahead, you can party in the streets. [Sprint, via Android Forums]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    I wonder if part of delay was in work to stop Easytether & Barnacle from working in Sprint version of 2.2?

  25. I have been running with the Dec. “Beta”. Do I need to do anything special to be able to install the official Sprint release?

    Will I have to return to stock for it to dwonload?

    Any help would be appreciate.


  26. Dunno if anyone can answer this, but If I installed the unofficial version of the 2.2 android back in december, can I update with the official version without the hassle of rolling back to 2.1 and (going through with that long and tedious routine)?

  27. Update pulled, people. Pulled by Sprint and Samsung. No more updates until further notice. Update has many bugs in it. to fix them, you will need to HARD RESET your phone. AVOID THIS UPDATE AT ALL COSTS!
