Samsung Releases Android 2.3 Source for Galaxy S Gingerbread Update


After launching the update last week, Samsung — on a bit of a source code frenzy — has released Android 2.3  for the Galaxy S to their Open Source Developers Center. With the release, we expect the speedy creation of all sorts of custom Gingerbread ROMs for installation on Galaxy S devices yet to receive the latest version of Android. The official update is currently rolling out to Samsung’s flagship Android device in Europe, though the exact plans for a wider release are unknown. Given the long wait owners of US variants of the device endured, this source code might be the only hope for many for the time being.

  1. Apparently, Telus will definitely be dishing out 2.3 to the Galaxy S later in the year. I’m guessing after the summer, but hopefully closer to September than December. I can still deal with 2.2, as Telus only released it right around Christmas. I hope a nice working ROM will be released for the Telus version of the phone. I haven’t tried rooting my device, but a working Gingerbread ROM would certainly be great motivation.

  2. What does this even mean for a Galaxy S covered with Touch Wiz? Will you notice a real difference? My Vibrant would need Gingerbread and TW 4.0 before I go back to stock.

    1. well what it does mean is better roms for all galaxy s variants. stock and touchwiz based.

  3. Samsung is seriously turning things around for themselves.
    bye bye g2…. sgs2 here i come???

  4. CAnt wait till darky gets this :)

    1. Ditto. Darky ROM is awesome. However, I think Samsung should be releasing the SGS with a ROM on par with the speed of Darky ROM.

  5. Running a Darky GB ROM already. RC4, it is a basic ROM but it works. That reminds me, I should go and check out the site to see the latest updates…

  6. Awesome now it can really be on par with Nexus S.
    CRT off animation + AOSP Gingerbread here we come :D
