You know whats really awesome about this? Those of us that have been waiting forever get all excited yesterday that we are getting an update. come to find out those of us that don't have home internet cuz our phone internet is sufficient and also have jobs that will fire us for pulling a stunt like downloading software to update our phone, well seems we are fu**ed yet again. Thanks t-sung! Thank you for succeeding to always be a piece o sh*t. Good day......

Mine upgraded with no problems at all. I'm really surprised they got rid of the stock Android keyboard ('cause the Samsung one is such a great replacement, right?). Well, at least we don't need to "sweep" the lock screen anymore (seriously, I was embarrassed for Samsung with that slip up). Using the computer to upgrade reminded me way too much of my Palm OS days 10 years ago.

well i just completed the upgrade, first attempt was troubling though. i was beginning the upgrade process then it said that it could not upgrade and that i needed to pull the battery and reboot the phone and retry the upgrade. after pulling the battery and rebooting i tried again and to my surprise it actually worked smoothly. the reboot after the upgrade completed is taking its sweet time though.

was pretty simple. just make sure your phone is set to kies before you plug in the usb. the part that took the longest was the downloading binary files (ive got slow internet) but the installation probably didnt take more than 5-10. total time spent was about 20-30 minutes, including installing kies and updating it.

Updated Vibrant through Kies...here's how
Ok, it took me a couple hours, but someone on T-Mo's forum did post the correct steps for doing the Froyo update on the Vibrant. I've done 2 of them successfully now with these steps:
-Download & install the version of Kies from this link: .
-Once it's installed & BEFORE connecting your phone to the computer, go into the phone Settings>>Applications>>USB Settings>>select Samsung Kies>>then go to Development & check USB debugging. Hit your home button & HIBERNATE THE PHONE (press the power key), THEN connect it to your computer & watch the magic happen. Good luck, all!!

ok upgraded my roommates vibrant. went smoother than i was expecting. backed everything up, put it in kies mode, ran kies. updated without a hitch.
was expecting it to wipe the phone in the process. all apps and info stayed put. verified it was running 2.2. only thing that got reset was touchwiz.
btw his phone is completely stock. updated via xp.

Using Cognition ROM vs Stock Froyo is a unfair comparison.

- Stock, not rooted
Did anyone get it to work on kies without receiving the notification to upgrade on their phone? I tried to update using kies mini earlier today, but as others have stated, it said "unregistered device". At work now, gonna try again when I get home. Thanks and Congrats to those of you that got the upgrade to work... This has been a very long wait! Hope I can get it to upgrade.
