Samsung Confirms Android 2.2 Update For The Vibrant

Good news soon-to-be Samsung Vibrant owners! At today’s big Galaxy S event in New York City, Samsung confirmed that all U.S Galaxy S variants, including our very own Samsung Vibrant, will be receiving an update to Android 2.2 ( a.k.a. Froyo) later this year and will also have compatibility with Flash 10.1. The Vibrant will launch with Android 2.1. Sound off in the comments!

      You got the android 2.2 update? How???

      • Dfw2k7

        I have 2.2.1 on my vibrant.. hes right there are a few things you must do. If you dont know about it by now.. then you should just wait for tmobile/samsung. you dont want to turn your vibrant into a paper weight

        • Bluuvibrant

          It’s called rooting into your device, risky but worth it.

  • Mortgageman714

    We shouldn’t have to hack our phones to get 2.2. I like the phone but come on.

  • Ufaalaegue

    no doubt about samsung vibrant is an amazing phone but we need the option to update to android 2.2 or even better 2.3 but if it doesnt work out for us we should have the option to go back to 2.1.1

  • Kevinphan45

    Vibrant fans…its not Samsung, its T-Mobile that is not doing there job. Vibrant in other countries already have their Froyo 2.2 updates. We in US are screw because T-Mobile is lagging on this updates. They make promises but NOTHING is deliver..or ever…? :(

    • Dfw2k7

      You dont know what you are talking about. It is samsung. The galaxy s recieved the update a while ago.. but the VIBRANT just received it about a week or two ago. Youve waited this long already and you dont even know the true benefits of the upgrade u seek..lol corny guy.

    • mmmmkq

      yuo could blame Google too…..

  • Dusty

    well this year is all but gone and we still dont see the mythical 2.2 upgrade

  • Dusty

    Oh, and by the way, If Samsung was so commited to getting the update to the t-mobile customers, they wouldnt keep hideing it and makeing the kies software “Not work” with the vibrant. the fact is the the service provider is trying to get a bug free release out and Samsung has been less than helpful in this effort.

  • Nognog76

    What the hell is up with samsung and t-mobile. just get rid of all the bloatware that you are trying to attach to froyo and give us the update already. Gingerbread is out already, while we’re still waiting on froyo!!!

  • Robert

    Ridiculous. Where is the Froyo update? Imagine having a supped up computer running Windows 95 when the rest is on Win7.

  • dave

    later this year is here whats up !

  • N Miller

    nobody knows what they are talking about. It is neither Samsung or T-Mobile. It is Google who sends out the updates over the air. If I wasnt so concerned about loosing the warranty I would have already done a rom update. and had a build to suit my needs. Bring on 2.2 google

    • http://twitter.com/brianv3ntura Brian Ventura

      @N Miller ACTUALLY! you are partly right… Google sends out the OTA on their servers because they have the resources and money to do so, BUT its up to samsung to dev n tweak the update AND tmobile to approve it.

  • Rksii

    It’s later this year. Where is froyo?

  • pedrorml

    Well … like other.. I’m still waiting for the 2.2 froyo… my phone works great aside from the GPS which some times stops working…. where is the froyo ?????? when ????

  • doh

    No froyo, I expect either they will scrape it all together or maybe give us gingerbread… which is even more doubtful. ahhh well

  • Jayfl23

    Ok so you can see on Youtube that the Samsung Kies program will give you the 2.2 update

  • G V

    Today is 12/25/2010, marry Xmas, but the Android 2.2 still didn’t release for update my Vibrant. You said: “will be receiving an update to Android 2.2 ( a.k.a. Froyo) later this yea”. However, I have seen nothing so far. Any comments!?

    • Laz

      They’r just playing with us like we where toys! telling us that it will be soon and stuff bunch of lies….. besides that i love my Vibrant…Hate tmobile network but love the vibrant lol

  • Mike

    T-mobile and samsung are complete bsERS. on my 4th crappy vibrant. btw when I asked t-mobile where was the update since they openly used it as a tool when you were looking at the phone in the store, they openly said its not in the contract.

  • chinauser

    I haven’t seen any announcements, but a Froyo update now appears to be available on Samsung’s website. See http://pages.samsung.com/ca/froyo/English/

    • doh

      nice find, been looking for info this morning. Not sure if this will in fact work on the US version though.

  • Spade793

    Im really pissed 2.2 isnt out yet on android forums it said either in november or late december it never happened like what the hell… where is it at ?? i paid 520$ for my phone YES i had top pay full price because my contract was renewed and yet i have not gotten 2.2 yet if i knew this was going to happen i wouldnt have bought a vibrant at this point im bout to just root my phone

  • Sergioolivar18

    I want my update already. Hurry up. I dont want n switch companies.

  • guest0413

    whats fishy is that a co worker of mine damaged her vibrant used her warranty and they sent her a new vibrant with 2.2 already on there…so if there are already phones with the update available why not roll it out to everybody?
    pretty jealous man, her phone has no lag problems.way quicker processor so it seems and definately no gps problems

    • Nun

      Its been released for like 6mo or some crap u have to update your self do a 5 sec google search on vibrant 2.2 and u should be able to figure it out from there

  • Unhappy Camper

    … And 6-1/2 months later, with rumors of Android 2.4 on the horizon, neither Samsung nor T-Mobile have any information on IF (let alone when) a 2.2 update may be forthcoming for the Vibrant! It’s a sweet phone to be sure; too bad they’re both f-ing over their customers! :(

  • Frojas213

    If they keep going like this, i might just swith to an iphone… at least they get their updates when they announce them…

  • Longtvo8503
