Samsung Galaxy 3 - Froyo

How to Upgrade your Samsung Galaxy 3 to Froyo (Android 2.2)

Gingerbread is around the corner and most of us are stuck with Eclair on our devices, feeling left out ? Samsung Kies says your phone does not have any new firmware. :(
Waited too long and sincerely for Samsung to release the Froyo update ?
Here you go.

3 words for you before you get excited and start doing the steps below - backup your phone
or remember how you set the settings, get yourself some appbrain + titanium backup.

Possible things to consider - warranty void, loss of IMEI, change in MAC address, and the must not say word 'bricking'
Alright then, next on the menu - simcard removal, memory card removal..haa...stripping apart the galaxy 3 - such a treat :p

Download >>
which contains the latest firmware for your phone, what we have here is - I5800XXJP8 - pass
which contains - apollo_0531.ops / I5800_Odin_Multi_Downloader_v4.252.exe

Get your USB Cable ready, Install Samsung Kies and upgrade it to the latest version - so it install's the phone drivers.

2) launch I5800_Odin_Multi_Downloader_v4.252.exe
