Re: Infuse gingerbread

Also, the Captivate got the update last week, and that phone has the exact same specs as the Infuse. I also heard that the Gingerbread update gave the Captivate baseband UCKK2, same as some of the leaks (probably the latest version) for the Infuse.

Last I heard from AT&T, which was this morning, they said that they had no information to share at the moment. I was quite surprised at that, in that it conflicts with how imminent the update might be. Take a look at the numerous leaks that were released over the past few months for this phone. I also read on another forum this morning about this matter that the leaks stopped about a month ago, and they said how that might mean the update should be finalized or somewhere pretty close to that.

Samsung has an open source website where you can search for the phone model (in this case, i997) and download a .zip file, presumably an "official" leak.

Given all this, I don't understand why there is no further information regarding the Gingerbread update. It's getting very frustrating having to deal with my phone freezing and having poor battery life, two things that Gingerbread is supposed to fix. Froyo is not doing a good job managing things like these. Why was this phone shipped with Froyo in the first place?

I just checked opensource.samsung.com - they don't have leaks there, and there is nothing new there for Infuse.  The last release was the Rogers UXKG3 Gingerbread source from late July.  (Canadians have had a half-baked Gingerbread release with a bunch of flaws since late July.)

 

Sadly, there are a LOT of differences between the Captivate and the Infuse at a low level...

 

The latest Infuse leak is UCKL2, which is a somewhat newer build than the UCKK4 release that went official for Captivate.  The Captivat's UCKK4 release went "official" on opensource.samsung.com 2-3 weeks before AT&T released it.  No such luck with Infuse UCKL2.

What exactly is on that open source site for the AT&T version of the Infuse? I tried downloading whatever it was that was over 100MB, but it stopped downloading after a while. What is it, anyway? And what are some of those differences between the Captivate and the Infuse? (Sorry if it's a known fact. I thought the Infuse was just a slightly modified Captivate.) 

 

Leaks stopped for the Infuse a while ago, according to another forum I read. Doesn't that mean the update is coming close to being released?

Source code for GPL-licensed components of the system.  This is primarily the Linux kernel.

 

The AT&T (SGH-I997) release there is Froyo source, the Rogers (SGH-I997R) release there is Gingerbread.

 

However Rogers Gingerbread is missing some features - most importantly no MHL (HDMI output) support.

 

The last AT&T Gingerbread leak was UCKL2 in early December.  Note that Captivate UCKK4 took over a month to get released by AT&T (built in November, released to users in January).  Captivate UCKK4 source was released in late December, 2-3 weeks before AT&T released the firmware officially.

Re: Infuse gingerbread

Samsung released Kies mini for this phone yesterday. Which can mean only one thing: the Gingerbread update is right around the corner! Don't believe me? Then go to http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/at-t/SGH-I997ZKAATT, click "Software" and see for yourself. Then download and install it and get excited. Look forward to the update coming in the next few days/weeks!

Re: Infuse gingerbread

yes, and once you install Kies you get taken to the upgrade page, but the upgrade has not released yet therefore the button for doing the upgrade is greyed out.

Re: Infuse gingerbread

Kies is a Samsung support app that can update your phone 's os and sync other stuff to and from your computer. "already out" means it's available on the Samsung website.

Re: Infuse gingerbread

Looks like this needs updating...Gingerbread is now released for the Infuse (if you already didn't know).

 

Make sure your phone is charged to 100% before plugging it into your computer.  You need to download "Kies mini" from Samsung, install on you computer (Windows only), start it, plug in your phone, select Kies mini on phone, click Update on computer...10-15 minutes later you are done.

 

The only loss of data is Angry Birds, which can just be downloaded again from the Android Market.

 

Have fun!!!
