Samsung had begun rolling out Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for its Galaxy S GT-I9000 smartphone earlier this month in several regions. However, due to some bug with the update, Google stopped this roll out process. Most Gingerbread updates rolled out for the Galaxy S via forums and other sites have problems related to battery life and WiFi connectivity etc.
From today onward Galaxy S users in India are getting the Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread update through Samsung Kies desktop software. Nitish Kumar, IT infrastructure professional and Galaxy S owner, shared via Twitter the image of Kies, showing the new Gingerbread build for Galaxy S GT-I9000 devices.
The new Gingerbread update brings a user interface improvement and several other bug fixes for Galaxy S devices. Those unhappy with GPS performance or battery life can expect better results with the new Indian Gingerbread firmware I9000DDJP6 update.
Before you get ready to download the new Gingerbread update, we suggest you back up the contacts, media and all other content stored on your Galaxy S. After that you can get the update by connecting your phone to the Samsung Kies software.
Samsung Kies software can be downloaded from this page.
