Just installed the new fixed update that i mentioned below.
my Galaxy got a lot faster (well the animation on start up is still jitterish) and now it is completly in Finnish.
Quadrant standard did not say nothing about faster...1st got ;950 ,2nd got; 963

but this txt input on browser is still annoying!!
I havent noticed eny bugs yet, the old ones seem to wanished...but lets see for a week or so..
But for now im happy! try it out if u have it on your kies.
OTA is crap..

I love my Galaxy S.... however, no surprise thgart the update is not available.

Been pulled due to bugs or something. One solution, get it right before putting it up on server.

"If you use a Samsung Galaxy S smartphone, and are waiting for an update to Gingerbread, then you will have to wait a little longer as it has been suspended."
