    I would do plenty of reading before you do. Be familiar with the programs, follow instructions to a T.

    Well that's what the word around xda has been. They supposedly pulled the planned dj05 update due to bugs/issues. Who knows how true that is though. I honestly wouldn't count on an update before Froyo. They have to know how bad people are wanting it!

    Last I hear the Fascinate wasn't going to get a FroYo update at all. With Gingerbread dropping so soon what I've been hearing (albeit I don't know someone "inside" Samsung, I'm just adding up all the rumors I've been told) they're going to skip 2.2 and go straight to 2.3 for the Fascinated among us.

    Just remember, this is a rumor.

    You know, I was just saying to myself earlier that GB would probably be out before FY hit the Fascinate! The rumor would certainly make sense on Samsung's part!

    No, they will not skip anything. Samsung has already said that to a website concerning the 2.2 update, which the Fascinate will be getting. As of now, they said its expected to be released before end of December. Thats what I read, forgot where though, so could be hard to believe me with no proof I suppose.

    I'll agree with that. Honestly, I don't count anything out when it comes to Android and have developed a "time will tell" mentality. :)
