Galaxy S Does Froyo and Micro-USB to HDMI


BriefMobile has some interesting information regarding the Samsung Galaxy S. First, it appears that the American varieties of the GS can output High Definition video via a special Micro-USB-to-HDMI cable. This is a specially engineered cable that will be available only via Samsung (at least initially).

Secondly, BriefMobile reports that a leaked Froyo-based ROM has been released by Samsung Firmwares for the Galaxy S. This is not for the American versions (Vibrant, Captivate, etc.), only for the Galaxy S i9000. It is an official Samsung release, although it appears to be a developer’s build. So, if you’ve got an i9000, attempt at your own risk.


    • Compass works great. What I'm going to assume you mean is that the default compass app that comes on the Galaxy S is no good. And I agree, that default app is about as good as a random cmpass. Try GPS Status app indoorsto see the SGS compass hardware functioning just fine. Turn the SGS around and it will adjust. GPS Status great app but just example here.
