Manually Install Android 2.1 on your Rooted Samsung Moment

It was rumored earlier in the week that Sprint and Samsung had begun internally testing Android 2.1 on the Moment.  Here we are only a few days removed and the ROM has arrived online.  The update file (for rooted phones) can be found in an forum post.  Among the early reported bug was trouble logging into the Android Market.  Apparently a quick reset of the phone was able to fix that.  Remember kids, taking things into your own hands can sometime be dangerous and result in a $300 paperweight.  Proceed with caution!

The Samsung Moment hasn’t officially joined the Nexus One and Motorola Droid as a 2.1 device but we expect it any day. If you haven’t rooted your Moment, sit back and relax.  It’s coming soon.

    I'm actually finding some ROM's that phones are installing that come from a Eris derivative, have problems with app's that use WebViews.

    I'm getting people reporting the server down etc, when it isn't, because the webview just says not connecting.

    I'm just curious as to whether anyone has noticed this same bug on this ROM because before moment users were saying my app was fine, now they're reporting it's a no go :-S

    If anybody figures out how to install Android on a Samsung 8910HD, I’d be very interested to know !!!

    Of course having the option to come back to the original software would also be nice.

    Do you know of a way to properly back up everything that was originally on the phone so that it would be possible to bring it back to factory default even after attempting a change of OS ???
