The long, long wait for owners of the Samsung Epic 4G and Samsung Transform smartphone to gain the Android 2.2 Froyo update just might be finally coming to an end after Samsungs last failed attempt to push out the update.

According to an article over on Android Police and by way of Android Central, documents leaked to “anonymous tipsters” reveal that the Samsung Epic 4G along with the Samsung Transform and the Samsung Galaxy Tab will receive an over-the-air update.

Apparently the Samsung Epic 4G will be updated to ECO5, which apparently is the Android 2.2 Froyo update, while the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and the Samsung Transform will receive EB28 again Android Froyo.

However, although the over-the-air update to the Android devices is scheduled for Monday the 21st, the word is it will take something like 4 days to get the update to all devices.

So does this news of Android 2.2 Froyo coming to play on your Sammy device make you happy or are you expecting things to go wrong like before?

  • nate

    I have a samsung transform and I was not happy when the forst update was recalled the transform was not made to run the less advanced eclair 2.1 which is another reason why the phone freezes constantly I personally can't wait for the ota and when it happens I will gain a smidge of hope for old sammy

    This site is useless. It will not let me log in even though I copied and pasted the exact user name and password that was e-mailed to me.

    I would not trust Samsung with updating a bicycle,got to be the worst when it comes to Customer Support and Customer Service. I have never seen a company with such a lack of concern with there customers. It seems once they have you it seems as thou it dosent matter anymore. They know you must be under contract with your sevice provider so what do they care…I have 6 Samsung products in my home and I will tell you there will not be a 7th,its over for you Samsung. A company is as good as their REPUTATION and Samsung has taken a BIG HIT with this DEBACLE. A recomendation to anyone interested in Samsung products be leary no Customer Support. I have the Samsung Epic 4G and only 5mos. in the speaker blew,I do not listen to music its a business phone,then their Executive Customer Service says I should send it to Texas for a 10 day down time,Sprint stood behind it and fixed it for $35.in 15 minutes.7 mos.for Froyo 2.2 update when everybody is getting Gingerbread,I can't see my phone ever getting that new update. So,in closing GOOD-BYE Samsung…..HELLOOOOOOO HTC for my new phone.

    Ohhh.. I'm sure that they can get it wrong twice I just hope that they won't.

  • tshelmadine

    I have an epic and have been waiting for this update for over 6 months. I called sprint last night to find out why I have not received this update yet, only to find out that they have delayed it again. I was told that I should get it by the end of the month but got a feeling that is just another one of their many lies!

  • Brian

    Received the update to Android 2.2.2 OTA on my Samsung Transform this morning. I'm quite content with the change from 2.1 which I've been using since November.
