    If you want a non-OTA installation:

    Users on stock 2.1 unrooted can go here.

    Rooted users and users already on a different Froyo build go here.

    No public OTA update is expected at this time. You will have to update using one of the methods in post #2, or wait for the "real" official update and OTA updating ability (date unknown).

    I did not use that method, but the first user that did said that it did not wipe his phone and left all his apps/data intact.

    It shouldn't wipe your data. I've used this method quite a few times in the past because I was too impatient to wait for an OTA and everything stayed just the way it was prior to updating. I can't say you WON'T have any problems because you never truly know, but mine always went off without a hitch.

    Our pleasure Royce. Be sure to check back with us and let us know how everything went. As for z4root, you should be fine there as well. It works on other 2.2 devices so there shouldn't be any reason why it won't work here.

    No data wipe. Worked well for me with the update.zip file. Just no difference in the Home Dock yet. Interestingly, I don't see that app in the Market, so hopefully Samsung is fixing it for Froyo now.

    Well I was getting errors when i tried to update and found out that the old One Click Root 2.2.5 has conflicts with this update (modified system/bin/playlogo) so I removed it and the update worked fine.

    That being said for some reason now everything is seriously laggy, the status bar takes about 5 seconds to show after I try to pull it down, haptic feedback is broken and root wont install. I'm going to try resetting it and see how it behaves once I get everything back up and running.

    Yep, a hard reset took care of everything and the phone is running fast and smooth now.

    Now to discover all the joys of foryo.

    There's a pre-rooted, zip-aligned stock version floating around from ACS on XDA

    Was running stock 2.1 on my epic before I updated to this last night. Just did reset holding down voldown+cam+power and the update.zip option. installed without issue.

    After that I let my phone alone to recharge around 5:30 am this morning.
    As of 9 am I've gone from 16% to 22%....which is definitely not normal.

    Going to turn it off and let it charge without the phone being one to see if there's a significant improvement.

    Question - I have used One Click Root 2.4.0, just to attain Wireless Tether (going on road trip and want to use laptop).

    Do I need to unroot to update? I saw conflict listed above on different method. Or if I do update, will it stay rooted?

    Would love to play, but really want the wireless tether to entertain kids on trip.

    I updated last night. No issues. Phone charges fine. No lag. Actually, everything seems a little crisper faster

    I was not rooted before the upgrade and still am not. My root today and play since I am getting a replacement phone delivered on Monday. I dropped and put a crack, top to bottom on the screen. Sucks real bad.

    If I do the manual update, will I still be able to get the OTA update later?

    You can try what this user did to install the update.zip.

    This is a good option, but be aware that you do need to have Clockwork installed.

    WiFi on Froyo seems to like eating battery while the screen is off. Try either turning WiFi off during times like this, or go to Settings>Wireless and network>Wi-Fi settings>tap menu button>Advanced>Wi-Fi sleep policy>After 15 minites

    iirc ACS said Wireless Tether is not working on straight Froyo - you may need a custom ROM version of it.

    If I do the manual update, will I still be able to get the OTA update later?
    No OTA updates, but equivalent non-OTA updates will be posted here.

    I've rooted my phone (and like an *****) deleted the default Sprint apps, so is there an update option for me without re-imaging stock 2.1? Is there a .zip somewhere containing the default sprint apps so I can just install them and then update?

    There probably is, but it would be more of a headache than just flashing back to stock.

    Would it be an issue doing the second option on this website: How To: Update Sprint Epic 4G to Android 2.2 - BriefMobile

    Or should I flash back to stock instead of trying that method.

    I'm not sure how this method would work with missing pre-installed apps. I know OTA updates completely fail, so if this update in any way checks for configuration before installing it could go haywire. Ragnarokx might be able to clarify this, though.

    That method is for completely stock, non-rooted (from one-click) phones only.
