New Official firmware update released via Updater

Its finally out, the official firmware update every i8910 owner has been waiting for. This update now features the latest bug fixes, as well as the implementation of the 3D task manager as post earlier. Its more or less the same as the Russian II2 release.

In order to update you must be on the Italian firmware, then run the Samsung software updater that came with the PC suite.

    I waited so long for this, feel a little bit disappointed

    Well, it’s a nice shot but …
    – Web browser still crashes from time to time
    – When in browser, sometimes, when swiping finger, it launches the 3DNav app ?!!!
    – When zooming in the web browser, the small overview windows that appears is really annoying when reading text
    – Multitab support is still so poor on s60 browser
    – When activating AntiShake in cam apps, taken pictures are *OVER* contrasted
    – Have the feeling that operaMini still hangs from time to time (less than previously, agreed)
    – Unable to use modem if the an app is already connected on the device
    – And unable to connect on the device if already using modem
    – Must first manually close all connection before switching 3G/2G, annoying
    – Web browser do not automatically go fullscreen once the page is fully loaded
    – I personally miss portrait mini qwerty keyboard that can be found on 5800
    – Each time VideoPlayer starts, it rebuilds its library, why not maintain a cache same as mp3 player
    – MP3 player does not adapt to selected theme + black/pink color ugly
    – MP3 player : no customizable equalizer, only presets
    – When listening to MP3 and activate cam, music stops -> Unable to listen to music while taking photos
    – When listening to music or radio, any notification sound (email,sms,graviti twitter client) stops the music
    – I personally don’t care abt video rec but several sources reported frame drop unfixed
    – No kinetic scrolling

    I hope all those come fixed in coming firmwares ….

    I feel that this update is only about 3D taskswitcher and better battery (confirmed for me)

    Hi ALL any1 help me out ?? I have debranded and have the italian version on it and all is well when I update up unitill it has 100% downloaded the update and then gets to 27% of the install. Then the phone goes into blue screen boot mode, the PC looses USB connection then reconnects, hoever on reconnect the PC installs new hardware but requires a standard USB driver????? I thought from SP1 in XP the usb drivers where part of the OS config.. Anyway I cant find a generic USB driver so my update just comes to a screaming halt… Any1 help, have any ideas or has it happened to you?? Thanks…

    Since updating to this new firmware I have the following problems…

    1 Im unable to open any pictures in the Gallery app, the phone just hangs even after switiching off / and on again. The application has now been made totally unuseable

    2) the video recording sound in its default state is totally unuseble . video just squells and whistles is horendous. ive now had to change the mic settings and reduced them to 18 db instead of 24 which makes is slightly better

    3) real player library is now also not working correctly.. if I try to open anything via real player library the app totally hangs or eventually opens, but all videos now play with skipping severall times a second. again making playing videos this route totally unseable

    4) plus side my web browsing is lightening fast

    Samsung should never of released this phone as far as I am concerned, its still far to much in beta stage.

    Im so tempted to make a video of this phone and all the problems Ive had with it since owning it, and making it ever so public for all at Samsung to see, im really P***** off with it

    WTF – it appears that samsung firmware is trailing behind this masterpiece (or what really should be)
    have just ordered this phone with the only UK provider ‘Orange Exploits’ and was really holding back for better version / provider. I know theres nothing really coming out in the iminent future hardware wise to challenge the omnia hd so decided to take the plunge ! & the 16GB version it appears has been stalled by orange to obviously get even more sales in at a later date – which is SAD – Samsung should have chose another provider to be their ambassadors. I am with Orange and their support is B&LLOX, complete BS.
    Orange are a bunch of W&NKERS – SELL, SELL, SELL to the point where they get under your skin and render a tech marvel useless. I hope that with the use of this and other forums I can redeem my new phone. Did exactly the same with my N95 – thank god.

    It appears that Orange and Samsung live miles apart on another planet.
    Samsung should have just provided a copy of windows 95 or even 3.1 !!!!
    MASSIVE LOST OPPORTUNITY !!! Samsung and Orange!
    Just hope I can make a world class multimedia phone out of the Orange (ins)Omnia HD !!!

    Gutted – as I think that the HTC HD2 would have killed this phone – again heldback due to WinMo, display resolution, camera and no video calling ! Will anyone get it right!

    when I updated the firmware everything was in Italian, had work through menus to get back to English. Also all links, downloads and apps are all Italian.

    Is it me, did I do somethng wrong?

    The phone now needs to be restarted(battery out) at least twice a day due to freezing when doing pretty much anything. If the phone is not used for say about one hour then it freezes when I try to look at messages, phonebook, browse the net etc..etc.., the battery life manages to get 24 hours if I don’t use the phone(even with backlight turned down and timeout etc adjusted.

    I know there are many suggestions on here for different upgrades, tell me though, can I uninstall the latest firmware or do I need to flash the phone then upload the original firmware before redoing the upgrade(it feels like sometjhign was missed in the original firmware upgrade process)

    firmware is currently showing as: I8910XXII2 – I have no idea what it was prior to upgrade.

    Any thoughts on wiping the phone and installing Windows Mobile 6.5 or android?

    Unlike the paid ads where you need to pay different media to advertise for
    you, online you have a very wide range of article directories that are there to publish your articles free of charge.
    Here’s the basic structure to follow: introduce yourself, then summarize the prospective client’s needs,
    describe your services and costs, and finally, provide information about your organization, your credentials, and your capabilities.
    Even if you aren’t on the preferred suppliers list, if
    you can offer some flexibility and meet the corporates needs you can overcome that.
