[VIBRANT FROYO] The official update thread
Froyo for the Vibrant is supposed to start pushing out today. Presumably the initial batch will be pretty small. If you get it, sound off here! If you don't have it yet, keep yer trap shut.
Oh, and a reminder that where you live/are has nothing to do with when you get the update.

Ok so im assuming then that i am doing the process wrong by going through settings>software update to check for the update?
Cause every time I choose the option it keeps saying 'No Firmware"
Do I need to use this Kies thing to do the update?
And is it an app for the device or a program for a computer?

To get the update now, you have to use Kies Mini. Its a program for the computer. Search XDA-developers for a direct link to download it. Once downloaded, open it, then on your phone go to setting>applications>usb settings and put ask on connection, you could just put kies but idk, i put ask on connection lol. Then Kies will read your phone, tell you theres an update and you can choose to update or not.

I see, thank you very much for your help, it'll be a while until i get access to a computer that i can make this happen with. Was hoping that it would be done directly through the device, but i guess not.
If anyone knows of a way to do it straight through the device, please let me know.

Kies is tempermental - try reconnecting the device. Also, make sure that you have the option set under "what would you like to do under USB connect" to "choose" so you can pick the "Keis" option there - I had to connect and reconnect several times this morning to get it to recognize my phone.
End conclusion - Keis is Cancer
