(Updated) Samsung Says Vibrant OTA On The Way?

It’s been a long and aggravating journey for Samsung Vibrant users with regards to an update to fix GPS issues that have been plagued them since the release of the handset. Last week continued to throw fuel on the fire with a vague tweet from Samsung regarding information surrounding the update that would arrive next week, which is now this week. Plenty of you expected news Monday, however none came. This morning however, we saw a tweet from Samsung’s @GalaxySsupport Twitter account announcing the arrival of the JI6 OTA update. A message “should appear on your phone” though no timeline is given as to when you can expect that to occur. For the moment that’ s all we know right now so hopefully Vibrant users can sound off below on receiving this update and any fixes that might be found.
