For a long time the users of Samsung Galaxy S have waited for an update to Android 2.2. Samsung had promised many times to release it until some date but later on they apologized and postponed it for a later date. This really frustrated everyone but none of Galaxy S owners could do anything but wait. But it seems that the wait and delays are over. Users from Norway, Denmark and Sweden report that they have successfully updated their Galaxy S to Android 2.2 via Kies. And this surely means only one thing – soon everyone should expect an update either OTA or via Kies.

  1. Download and install Samsung Kies (If you don’t already have it)
  2. Update Kies to the latest version.
  3. Connect your phone and after being registered, click on the phone with the little arrow icon at the bottom right.
  4. Complete the firmware update do JPM (if you are lucky to have such an update).
