Yesterday Vodafone Samsung Galaxy S users were offered the chance to upgrade their phones to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Today, however, that update is nowhere to be found. The strange part is Vodafone is claiming there are no known issues with the update, and Google itself pulled the plug on the update.
According Vodafone Community Manager Tom, the roll out of the Gingerbread update has been “temporarily suspended by Google.” It is mentioned that Google stopped the update due to an issue with the update, but there’s no specifics given. The next paragraph goes on to say there are no performance issues with Vodafone’s version of the Galaxy S, and that the carrier is working with Samsung to get the update back up.
The situation certainly seems a bit odd. If Vodafone and Samsung were confident enough in the update, why would Google ask to have it stopped? In any case, if more pops up about this issue, we’ll be sure to let you know.
