A Sign that Froyo Will Be Here Soon - Or Not?

I know that Kies Mini has been used by people to do updates on their Fascinates in the past, but I wasn't sure if it was actually an official download on the Samsung website on the Verizon Fascinate page. I went there today and noticed it has been available since yesterday (dated 3/23/11).

Here is the link: Samsung

If it has been there and I just didn't realize it, then it means nothing. If it just got there then I wonder if that means Froyo will go out via Kies sometime soon.

Can anyone confirm if this has been on their page or if all the Kies downloads that people got in the past for the Fascinate were from other pages/websites?

I saw that when you hover over it but I think it still works with the Fascinate. I'm just trying to find out if they just put it on the page or if it has been there for a while. If it is new to the page then my thought is that it may indicate something else on the way...perhaps Froyo.

That's strange, yesterday when I connected my phone to Kies Mini it recognized the phone, however it said there were no updates. When I just tried it now, I was prompted to download some bootloader from Verizon and download usb driver files for the phone. Idk, may or may not mean anything. Who knows we may get Froyo before April.

It has been there a long time. It is for European models of the phone. Quite a few people have tried to get benefit from it but appears to be none outside its intended market.

Oh really? That may be it then, the times I have tried I never seen it, yesterday was the only time it went through for me, but now its saying to connect a proper device and whatnot.

It's more than likely for the samsung mesmerize as our phones are very much alike. Thats where we got the eb16 and ec10 kernels. They get froyo today.

True. But just wondering why they put it on the page designed specifically for the Verizon Samsung Fascinate. If it was just on the Mesmerize page I wouldn't have thought anything, but it's on the page for the Fascinate.

Someone over at another forum said that a samsung rep said check back early April. They've got to be getting it all bloated up. I don't care if we ever see the update. We have the source code to the mesmerize and now the real devs can work their magic.
