View Full Version : Software update today via PC Studio 7 (Netherlands)

Today when I checked the software updater I did not get the usual message "the device is not recognized by the software updater blah blah". This time there was a real update! You can watch the process in this slideshow:

If you install this update, be sure to back up all your data first! The update puts the phone back in its original state. All my contacts were gone as well as my messages. Videos and images were still there. Settings like theme were back to default.

However, the HD video sound is still AMR narrowband :mad: So that hasn't been fixed by this update.

I called the dutch helpdesk of Samsung Mobile. The guy I spoke to didnt know about this update, nor about the announced HD video audio fix. After checking at main office he told me the audio fix for the HD video update will be available via PC studio 7 at the end of next week, so that would be July 23th.

That's actually not the firmware that's talked about fixing the audio issues etc, in fact it looks similar to the one that came with my new i8910 last week:

Will try an update later today and see if there's anything for mine yet......

My first impression is that overall performance has improved.
Apps start faster, scrolling in the browser is much smoother (landscape is still slower than portrait).

As for the battery life issue: I can't tell yet if that has improved too. Will take some time to find that out.
