It seems that Android 2.2 update news for the Samsung Epic 4G was little more than a leaked version and sure you can still follow the directions that were provided and have your handset running Froyo — but you are doing so at your own risk. Bottom line, according to Sprint that version is a test build and “is not approved software for Sprint production devices.
“Software version DI18 is the current production version of software. When new versions of software are available, users will receive a notification from Google on their device stating that an upgrade is available for download and installation. While we are unable to communicate a firm delivery date, rest assured that we are working on a software upgrade to Froyo and hope to have it out in the very near future.”
And there you have it, the Samsung Epic 4G is not the first Galaxy S branded handset in the US to get upgraded to Android 2.2, well, not yet at least.
