Anonymous, 27 Mar 2011Does it work with the samsung captivate !!!!!!!!!!Yeah no **** it doesn't work on the Captivate. It's for the international GT-I9000 models. Read the damn article.
Great news! I'm a big fun of Samsung and Gingerbread surely run extremely well on it!
I've foung a blog where they explain how to install Android 2.3.3 in the Galaxy S.
It's a Spanish blog, but it's quite understandable:
Keep like this gsm, you're great!
P. to all ppl sayin iphone is better than sgs is wrong, yes we have to install third party apps etc.. to make it faster and so on... but come on, check out sgs wen all is installed and ull see sgs woops iphone, iphone is sooo borin and to me the camera has to much saturation, the screen is way to small and the OS looks the same as any iphone, u have to take ya charger where ever u go, not like sgs where its small usb as most ppl now have small usb so no need to take ya charger about. The list goes on about how behind the iphone is. So wen i had the choice to get the iphone or the sgs, then hell yeh i went for the sgs
Darkys gingerbread version is better than Samsungs version, then install the landscape touchwiz mod and voodoo sound kernal plus root it, then ull have a mobile fone wat is absolutely amazin

Fast videos play better to in browser. The galaxy s may still get another update thanks to it being hardware compatible with the nexus s. Best investment android phone yet.
updated few hours ago to 2.3.3, fast performance, nu bugs found (yet), recomanded update from my point

Yeah...why would SGS user have to install LAGFIX? To fix the lag? Lol!

SGS is a very good Android because it is almost impossible to "brick" because of the 3 botton "download mode" and Odin.
Don't come running to samsung if there are problems after you flash your sgs or in worse case scenario - bricking your phone.
Xda,is not affiliated with samsung so why trust them saying "it's official." If it is really official then they would'nt say "use at your own risk." *duh*
And also "official" means "approved by",liable to any concern,taking responsibility. Capich¨¨.
My posts are just a friendly reminder for gsmarena and for users who plays safe and or general users.*non-techies* BUT you have the right to do WHATEVER you want with your phone. You bought it with your own money so live your life. It just voids the warranty.
Smooth as silk..at least the swype works on this version..darky will make it even better..
The 2.3.3 ROM works like butter on the sgs, it was the most needed FW after the 2.3.2 release. i experienced rapid RAM usage, with just FB, music player and the web browser the phone would freeze! but with 2.3.2 it works like charm! i've experience an issue with the music player though, play music, swithc off the screen and the music player freezes. Also the gyro doesnt work with Gmaps, cant use the pinch-to-rotate or the auto rotate feature on Gmaps
Is it safe to install it coz der are more chances of bricking.....
Alreadz installed, everzthing works fine. There is also root solution on xda. Phone works faster and snappier.
