A New Official Gingerbread Build Leaked for Samsung Galaxy S i9000


This isn’t the first time the device has gotten its Gingerbread ROM leaked, but a new build for the Samsung Galaxy S i9000 has come out via XDA and looks to bring Android 2.3.3 to the masses. (Previously, only Android 2.3.2 was released.) This is said to be the build that Samsung will soon be bringing to handsets in Europe. The folks at XDA note that this isn’t rooted, but who cares? It’s Gingerbread! Go and grab all of the details and files you’ll need at their site to get started. [Thanks to all who sent this in!]

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.

  1. Now it already proof that samsung have a better support for it old phone. If anybody complaint that their galaxy s variant don’t get their update, blame your carrier!! Our international galaxy s get update without problem…

    1. The several months of delay in getting 2.2 in the first place is what annoyed me.

      That and the fact that they never publicly acknowledged the GPS issues and filesystem problems.

      Wouldn’t touch Samsung again.

      1. Im in the same boat as Karnka. They never came out and said “yea we know our ohone looks awesome but half the crap its supposed to do DOESNT work. complete and total asshattery by samsung.

        Granted i took Team Whiskeys latest flavor of awesomeness and put that on my vibrant so it can semi work but still at the end of the day its retarded how Tmo/Samsung both failed. Samsung failed when they put it together (i had to open it up and bend there stupid antenna into place almost breaking the damned thing) and Tmo with getting source 100 yrs ago and never putting it the hell out. and of course the entire time tmo support is telling me what there supposed to tell me, use there BS app to fix it and if that dont work send it in at my expense for repair/ replacement.

        i smell crap.


      2. Awesome stuff Samsung! Take that motorola, locking bootloaders and taking root methods away. Not to mention selling a non 4G phone as 4G that’s fraud.

    2. Read up on more related to the Galaxy S. I communicate for project Advanced Technology and Design Korea, and it’s my job to to listen and share what the world is saying about anything related to Korean IT and Design.

I think you’ll find some nice content there! Cheers!


    take this htc owners. have fun with your update in q2

  3. Please stop using this image in every gingerbread related post. It’s creepy. Oh and Samsung FTW.

  4. I’ve heard one reason for the delay in US variants getting FroYo is that one or two carriers had problems rolling out their versions… Sammy probably had an understanding with all the carriers that they would update all the different models together, so no single carrier would appear to be worse than the rest.

    Is that Sammy’s fault? Maybe, if they did agree to such a deal.

    But to all the #NeverAgain guys: supposing Sammy never does this again (releasing different models with different carriers), the chances of an update being slow to reach you will be very much reduced. IMHO, you’re just short-changing yourself if you choose not to consider any more Sammy products again.

    They’re arguably the best OEM in terms of hardware. What’s more, Sammy is the first Android partner to show that they realise how the pricing game should be played with their announcements on their new tablets. If nothing else, this shows they know how to learn from their mistakes.

    But if you want to limit your choices… well, that’s your choice.

  5. @Marshall M,

    Unless this ‘officially’ rolls out in the next 2 days, it will also be Q2…

  6. blame your carrier’s

  7. this may mean gingerbread for US variants in the next 8-12 months…….. Sprint, Virizon, At&t, T-mobile, etc. you all suck!

  8. Been using 2.3.3 Gingerbread on my SGS i9000 for a good 12 hours now.
    BLAZING FAST internet browsing on stock browser + BATTERY LIFE FTW!

    3G+ browsing 301hour, 1hr~ish calling, 5 texts, few photos, music 2hours on the tube.
    STILL 65% battery.

    Shows you how much a few alterations in O/S can effect you phone! Well done Samsung, looking forward to the “official release” :D

  9. @Marshall until this is pushed out it hasn’t “beat” anything.

    I’m still skeptical of Samsung in general but if they can pull this off I may have to rethink that.

  10. I shared this on project Advanced Technology and Design Korea’s twitter (www.twitter.com/advancedtechkr). Check out the blog (www.advancedtechnologykorea.com) and the facebook fan page (www.facebook.com/advancedtechkr) when you can. I think you’ll find some nice content there!
