New Gingerbread Leak for Epic 4G Arrives, And It’s Stable Enough [EE03]


This isn’t the first Gingerbread leak for the Samsung Epic 4G, but the first one was really unstable. GPS didn’t work, 4G didn’t work and there was just a sea of other issues that had people running back to Froyo. The folks behind ACS have gotten their hands on yet another leak, though.

This one is build EE03 and seems to be as stable as stable can get at this point. GPS works, 4G works and there just isn’t that big of a sea of other issues. (See what I did there?) Be sure to note that this ROM is RFS only. If you only deal with Ext4, you’ll have to wait until developers implement it (if it’s even possible).

This one is pre-rooted and deodexed, of course, and flashing instructions can be had at AndroidForums.com. (You may have to Odin back to stock ECO5 and re-root that before proceeding.) [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.

    1. thanks :)  

  3. I wish the Evo would get a stable build of Gingerbread already (with Sense UI).

    1. It does or at least stable for me so far, everything seens to work on my Evo

  4.  Yes, it is an amazing build in case you were wondering.

  5.  Do all phones that have Gingerbread include the Nexus wallpapers???? O_o

    1. The epic had those wallpapers in ec05 froyo.

      1. Thats interesting. 

  6. F yeah! Bout time.  Been playing with my brothers Nexus S 4g and am drooling over what his has with Gingerbread that i dont on custom Froyo.  G-talk video calling is sic, even over 3g.  WAY TO GO ACS TEAM.

    The epic is finally living up to its name.  Loving this phone.

  7. Now all you U.S moaners and Samsung haters can stfu. From the phones which came out a year ago, the Galaxy S line are the first to get Gingerbread updates. Good one and keep’em coming. Would like the U.K version of Gingerbread for my Galaxy S please soon. Rest of Europe have got it already.

    1.  actually the nexus one got the gingerbread update before the galaxy s line (aside from the nexus s)

  8. And Netflix works perfectly with it… The only gripe I have is that it’s slower than the Frozen 1.10 ROM I was running, but hey! It’s still nice to see this moving in the right direction! And I can’t wait until the devs work their greatness on this!
