Samsung Releases Galaxy S Froyo Source Code

Samsung has updated its open-source portal with what seemed to be the final release of the Froyo update for the i9000 Galaxy S. It might not be useful if you’re using a carrier-branded phone, like the Captivate for example, but it definitely indicates that your Froyo update shouldn’t be far off.

Users who have installed the update are reporting that their phones still feel a bit sluggish without the famous “lag-fix”, which could be improved in future updates.

EDIT: Before we could even share the good news with you guys and gals, we were advised that it has since been pulled!  Was it released too early?  Not completely finished?  Maybe they want to wait until all handsets get the release before opening the code up.  We’ll find out as soon as we can.
