Thanks for the link - spent all afternoon trying to get it to work and it wouldn't - tried it again after your post and it seems to be working now

Good job perhaps I speak some Italian

And before I get slammed as a Nokia lover. I am considering getting this device when my contract ends. Firmware updates for handsets that are rushed out onto the market seem to be common nowadays. It's a shame. Even the iphone has this problem (wifi issues)

Once again, you are misinformed. There are literally tens of thousands of posts around the internet complaining about the audio quality from the initial release; from people who actually own the device.

Some people actually want the best from their phone instead of keeping quiet and thinking-up false issues in other manufacturers' products due to the brand loyalty that they're quick to deny. Remember that, JohnnyN...

Has anyone been able to make this work? I've installed an italian ie4 firmware and tried the Update software but it still says "Your phone is no supported"

You contradict yourself by claiming that I'm making up false issues straight after agreeing that there was a fault with the i8910! You can have these clownshoes back sir.

The clown shoes never left you, my friend. YOU were the one who made up no wifi and out-of-synch audio.

Nope, you can have them back along with a red nose and a funny hat, as I never claimed there was no wifi on the samsung, merely that Orange never advertised it as being a feature. Now run along.

cassia so-called

For me I've noticed these things in the new firmware:

- much improved browser performance
- seems like a slight speed increase everywhere (was already very fast)
- 16kH 256kbps AAC encoded sound on video (sounds very good now) along with improved FPS
- camera now remembers user settings between sessions (like blink recognition on etc)
- few new widgets, the WiFi one being very welcome for me
- improved keyboard response times
- two new games (brain challenge and Texas Holdem poker)
- the download app (my V7 Polish firmware was missing this...)
- fixed the bug that wouldn't let me assign my own email alert tone (now I have Futurama's Bender declaring "I have mail", small thing, it makes me very happy with Roadsync true push HTML email...)
- they claim other stability fixes, but I can't see where, it was already the most stable early-release S60 phone I've ever owned...

EDIT: Oh yes, HelloOX works too

EDIT EDIT: Samsungi8910omnia has all the files and instructions needed to get the italian firmware. I used the flashing tool to get mine up to V7 Italian firmware, then the PC Suite detected an update was available.

I can't believe...

....Always behind the last runner about everything we have the most updated firmware. Only a little reason to be proud to be italian. Remember, the only one.

The whole list sounds really nice, but I think I shall wait for the regular update. Reason being that the Omnia is already performing very well and I wouldn't like to spoil something on the way of flashing the phone. Plus do you lose warranty by doing this?

some say you do loose warranty, some say you "may" loose warranty

Since I'm already having problems with the phone constantly hanging, on simple things like just writing SMS, with nothing running in the background, I won't take the risk, since I don't know if my phone has some hardware problem. Suspecting mass storage faulty / corrupted, cause files copied to the phone sometimes play and sometimes don't... idk
