Epic 4G

Last weekend when the Froyo leak for the Epic 4G rolled out, there was a bit of consternation about the folks that had the leak not wanting to share it with the public-at-large.  Somebody, somewhere decided that this needed changing, and the leak is now available for download and flashing.  You'll need to be rooted of course, and bug reports vary wildly, from no issues to plenty of force closes and reboots. 

If you're that kind of guy (or gal), grab the file at the source and give it a go! [XDA-Developers] Thanks Casey!

FokisMoney says:

hmmm, very interesting. I'm picking up an epic on the 1st and cant wait. Does this mean the official update wont be far behind? I'm new to android, so people who have had them longer maybe you can help, do leaks usually happen close behind the official release?

I want to install this but I don't know how... is there a go-to page that gives step by steps on updating it manually...

A good "HOW TO" for those who want to put the new froyo on their epic 4g: http://briefmobile.com/how-to-android-2-2-on-epic-4g

DL'ing now, will report back once flashed.

FROYO for the Vibrant leaked out yesterday, not sure why this was not given any attention.

Zylograth says:

Well now I feel like an ass because after reading that story I realize that is where I linked to it but did not want to flash a leak. Of course 24 hours later I was all about flashing it :)

lol. Everyone caves eventually and installs them. Embrace it :p

Does it have Touchwiz 3.0? Or any new features?

rufflez says:

yes, it has touchwiz 3.0. Add/delete home pages, move icons around, dedicated video app, tw 3.0 music app... lots of improvements (and yet, still some way to go).

can i use this for my fascinate?

Zylograth says:

NO! Fascinate is CDMA and Vibrant is GSM, and that is just the first level of incompatibility

Eazail70x7 says:

But the Epic is cdma

rufflez says:

very different hardware.

With no official restore tools I am not bothering with this. Actually know a few that bricked their phones and those hack job restore barely works.

CR6 says:

Per the article..." bug reports vary wildly, from no issues to plenty of force closes and reboots."
This is exactly why I'll wait for the OTA update.

Mobius360 says:

As CR6 said I will wait it out. I was reading many posters with all kinds of issues. My phones works pretty good right now, I could really use the install to SD feature though. I think the tiny amount of onboard memory was just not thought out very clearly.

I want to see some benchmark tests on a galaxy s with froyo. That should be exciting.
