Firmware update i8910XXIG2 – Audio codec fix. Releas
i8910XXIG2 firmware update released

i8910XXIG2 firmware update released

Edit: See our uploaded i8910XXIG2 test video for proof of how much better the AAC coded really is on 720p video.

Yes Firmware update i8910xxig2 has been released over the Samsung updater service. So if your after the latest firmware with the latest improvements to battery life and video will now have the AAC codec instead of the AMR codec. There is one catch, you’ll have to be on an Italian unbranded firmware for the samsung updater to work at this stage. This is till Samsung release this update across the global.

Orange users will have to debrand. Our guide to do this is here: Samsung i8910 Omnia HD Debrand tutorial

Our forum also has plenty of info on this. 2mnyshp’s guide on how to get IG2 firmware with video audio fix.

Once the IG2 firmware ROM’s are made public for manual flashing we will have those up for you all to debrand directly to IG2.

Enjoy!

    I’ve tried doing this after a successful update from the Italian firmware, but the Samsung PC Studio failed with some file error just after the phone had blue-screened. Luckily, it hadn’t started to update the firmware by this point, so the phone still works. I had the same problem twice: can’t work out why.

    How much free disk space does this process require? I had over 3GB…

    Samung Netherlands just today made new firmware available. But that firmware is version I8910XXIF7

    I wonder if this is the same firmware as i8910XXIG2 with just another number. The software version date is 15/06/2009. That seems old to me. But until yesterday there was no firmware available on the samsung website. and via PC Studio. So it shoot be the latest

    I have the feeling the battery life is better
    But this is the 1st day only
    The phone looks snapier but have not re-installed everything yet

    Had to do the audio fix
    >>To solve the hiss / high pitch noise issue… in the secret menu: *#0002*28346# – then 3 Records” –

    But noticed that volume tricks were already in the XXIG2 fiwrmare

    Hi all ive also done the above firmware upgraded i was on orange IE2, i was having alot of troubles with battery life after switching the phone off after it was completely flate and charging it over night 5 or 6 time it seemed to have sorted the battery out but i never get any more than 4 days out of the battery at a push and thats just using the phone at its min may be with a couple of very short calls
    i havent noticed that the battery is any better with the new firmware if you check on the forum there are some mods for extending battery like like changing packet data to ‘when needed’ and turning video sharing of..
    1 thing that i have noticed is that the bug seems to have gone when you plug it in to the usb , you used to have to switch the phone off then back on again otherwise it used to run down the battery quick that dont seem to happen any more.

    Respect to Battery performance when connect to pc studio or storage mass the phone start to drain the battery. and only have battery for around 12 hours, I think this happens because the battery internal circuit loose any battery remain info. when you introduce more charge via USB. I recomend check for updates to the end of the day when you have 1 bar of battery and you can turn off youu phone and charge all nigth and you have at least 2 days of full use in the mornig. Ihave XXIE7

    As opposed to all the other things we install to debrand the phone…the machine I debranded on would not complete the Samsung PC Studio update – to get the most up-to-date firmware etc…so I went on another computer, installed PC Studio, I did not install any of the other stuff needed for debranding. It completed the update no problems (did the offical update on a Vista machine if anyone is interested).

    Hi all,
    well a small report on this XXIG2 FW (was previously running XXIE7)
    Pros
    – IU faster, no doubt
    – I’m not an expert but feel that the recorded sound on videos is better
    – OperaMini works much better; no more freeze/hang
    Cons
    – lost widgets and unable to get them/download them from anywhere (wel did not found)
    – Battery life was not really a big improvement for me
    – Found annoying bug, if I “switch home screen theme” to something else than “Samgung Widgets”,
    The four direct function in the botom of the standby screen do not work (Tel/Contacts/Msg/Menu”
    – Pressing the botom/left physical buton do not call the callLog apps any more … It only … answers phone calls
    – web broser still crashes from time to time

    WHAT DaWaBZ94?! you actually claiming that there are more faults with the new firmware than that there are improvements?! damn, you better not install this firmware at all..

    say, on samsungomniahd dot com theres a news headline, and the message says that samsung is going to do a re-launch for the samsung omnia hd, where they finalize the product and to make the last improvements and internal changes… so best is not to buy this amazing phone yet, but to wait. they stopped mass production just after the first real launch of it. no release date was given yet.

    Hi,

    I’m not saying new FW has more faults
    just saying it’s not the perfect one yet
    I removed and replaced battery and it looks there do is an improvement indeed

    But most take my words back abt OperaMini, it still hangs/freezes

    Tried to install additional widgets; they fail or do not work properly – well at least th eones I tried

    The “C” drive still have ridiculous available space (do not know if this can be adresses in futur releases)

    And at last, whatever homeScreen mode, the “answer” buton do not call the “log” utility anymore;
    It only answers …

    But it was worth the upgrade ; especially abt battery life improvement, general UI perf and video codecs

    I’m not a big fan of widgets so … it’s okay for me

    – when a you start a big download in the s60 web browser it stops when the phone goes standby (wlan cx loss) ! this is really annoying !

    its never been right since i have done the update but i did notice when i updated my phone from the old firmware that not everthing got wiped on the phone im gonna hard reset the phone and format the internal memory and the sd card and install everthing again and see what happen perhaps something got its knickers in a twist

    Hi,

    having played with FW update on nokia devices, it has become a reflex after FW update to first do a *#7370# right after the FW update is done and then install my apps from scratch to make sure I have all fresh installed apps

    One more thing, on Omnia HD, when you do a *#73#, it also formats the internal massStorage so if you have important recorded videos or photos, I suggest you backup them before doing the *#7370# :)

    I also read that on 5800 if you changed the default security code, the FW update can hang and you get a brick phone

    Might be the same here since same OS but not sure

    So just to feel easy on the FW update, I set back the default security code (00000000), then reboot the device before starting any FW upgrade

    Hope this helps :)

    After debranding my I8910 with “I8910_Sweden_Netherlands_Switzerland_Germany_Italy” firmware I couldn’t update my phone. There is simple solution, uninstall all samsung drivers from your pc (go to control panels, go to add or remove programs and uninstall all samsung drivers) restart your pc and install Pc studio one more time. Now you can update your samsung ( be patient sometimes it does not want connect your phone, just disconnect and try one more time). For me works 100%.
