    Verizon's Samsung Fascinate Finally Gets Froyo Update


    Samsung Fascinate owners can rejoice. Their phone can get the Froyo update starting today! Below is a download link if you want to do it manually yourself, and some instructions to go with it. Enjoy!
    1. Download the file from the mirror... and make sure itís named update.zip. Make sure itís not update.zip.zip (in case your Windows is set to hide file extensions).
    2. Copy it to your Fascinateís SD card using any method you fancy.
    3. Reboot the phone and hold VolUp+VolDn+Power while booting it back up.
    4. You should see the Samsung logo. You can now let go.
    5. At this point, you should be in recovery. Use volume buttons to navigate and Home to select.
    6. Scroll down to Apply sdcard:update.zip and select it.
    7. Watch the magic happen.
    8. Congratulations, you should now have Froyo on your Fascinate.

    My girlfriend just updated. I told her she would probably have froyo in December. Samsung would need to do a lot to get me to buy one of their phones after this.

    I just heard about this from my buddy. Cause I've been teaching him how to work custom roms and themes and do other mods, which has been fun cause I've never got to use a phone with an unlocked bootloader before. But anyways, he called me all freaking out cause he found out the OTA update for froyo was available but it wouldn't let him get it. So I had to explain to him over the phone how to restore a nandroid backup and un-root his phone, which was very frustrating since he's not very tech savy and sucks at following verbal directions. I still can't believe their are people without froyo out there. It'd very sad lol

    Froyo update??? I've been enjoying Gingerbread on my Droid 1 for a while now. Samsung can eat their stale Froyo until they get sick on it. Lame slackers.

    What yall are forgetting, is that the majority of the people who were still on 2.1, either dont know what 2.2 means, or dont care, and the ones who like to mess with phones, are on CM 6 or 7 or a GB rom or w/e, and are at the same place as the droid X, droid 2, etc.

    Releasing of factory updates really doesnt matter at all to the rooting community, so basing a decision to buy the phone because of it doesnt make sense.

    Just sayin :P

    You bring up a good point. However, I personally based my decision not to buy a Samsung partially on how long it took them to roll out this OTA and partially because of the complications I've seen my boss go through with his Epic, after upgrading to Froyo back in February. Their general lack of support as well as their extremely delayed release of a major update to the Android OS is discouraging.
