Samsung Galaxy S 2.2 update arrives

October 15, 2010

I’m pretty excited. The Samsung Galaxy S has recently received the official update to Android 2.2 and I’m installing mine right now. The update from the version of Android on the Samsung Galaxy S to version 2.2 JPM and includes a host of additional and new features. If you are really in top of your game you could have got the release a little early via XDA and SamFirmware. However, all you need to do as of now is to install via Samsung Kies and you’re good to go. Below is a list that outlines a few of the goodies:

  • Android 2.2 JIT compiler
  • Adobe Flash Player 10.1 compatibility
  • New Android Market with auto-updating
  • Speed improvements
  • Pinch-to-zoom homescreen flyover
  • Improved default keyboard
  • Quick links to “GPS” and “Auto rotation” toggles on notification bar added
  • Slightly different graphics and transitions with app drawer and default icon dock
  • Colored icons in settings
  • GPS Fix
  • Colored settings icons
  • Media Hub
  • Darker menu theme, navy blue color
  • Better Exchange support
  • Video records in MP4 format
  • New Search widget
  • New Gmail application

You can grab Kies here. Once installed, you will need to update the Kies program. Then connect your Galaxy S and once it has registered on the program click on the phone with an arrow icon near the bottom right of Samsung Kies. This should update it. If you have previously installed a custom firmware version to the device, then you might have to reflash back to an original in order to get Kies to successfully connect.
