Rumors have been runnin' round regarding the Sprint Epic 4G's long-awaited Android 2.2 Froyo update. And it looks like Dec. 26 is getting nailed down as a probable date. Yes, we know how these "push dates" go -- they're as likely to be good as bad, and it's not like everybody gets pushed the update at the same time. But here's what we've been sent from a couple of people:
A software update to DL11 (Froyo) is available for the Samsung EPIC 4G via
OTA Duration time: 7-8 minutes, with installation time of 6-8 minutes.
Customers will become eligible for the upgrade across a 4-day period based on their status with the Google servers.
67% of users are currently on SW DI18 so the first OTA package we will
publish will be an upgrade from DI18 - Froyo (DL11).
So if all goes according to plan (we're all knocking on wood here), the push would begin next Sunday and last for four days or so. Anybody wondering what their "status with the Google servers" is? More on the Froyo update in the Epic 4G forums
