Samsung Galaxy S i9000

Android 2.3.4 has been leaked for the Samsung Galaxy S (that would be the i9000 international version), and the folks at SAMFirmware have made it publicly available.  Early reports are saying that it does address some of the bugs found in the 2.3.3 version, but the all important video chat via Google Talk is not included in this build.  We're not going to read too much into that, this is a leak and nothing official after all. 

The real question is how long will this take to move from leaked status, to something that can be deployed across all carriers, for all Galaxy S variants.  We don't have that answer -- I don't think anyone does.  Hopefully it's sooner rather than later.

I live in the Czech republic and Iown a i9000. I was told by Samsung support last week that the update may come on July 11th.

Let's hope that this time it will not take much longer then that. The Froyo update was extremely late.

Btw this is the original message (in Czech though):

So much hatred for Samsung who haven't done anything wrong nor are they that far behind with updates, official or leaked, they're still being made. Not their fault carriers are awful

So sprint has no trouble outing gingerbread to the evo 4g with htc but all of the sudden all the issues with samsung and that's sprints fault? And btw, they are leagues behind with updates.
