http://www.samfirmware.com/apps/blog/show/5419315-samsung-i5800-gets-froyo-? a bunch of users on their forums have already flashed their phones with these
Apologies - my post below should have said:
I called Samsung UK today and was told there are no plans for Froyo on the APOLLO. Said this was one reason that would put me of buying and could they confirm. Was put through to tech support who confirmed no plans for Froyo - would neither confirm nor deny but sounded more likely to be a 'no' from what the tech rep was saying
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2010Cannot open Marketplace after upgrade to 2.2 What should i do? I upgraded using Kies.Correction to my previous post, after update you will have to go applications-->Market , accept the terms. From now on you can access it from home screen itself.

Swissmen, 06 Nov 2010I got the update this afternoon in Switzerland. No problems at all.How did you get FROYO on Samsung in Switzerland? I am on swisscom, having a Galaxy i9000 and Kies has not offered the upgrade yet. Can you explain how you managed? Thanks a lot in advance!
Swissmen, 06 Nov 2010I got the update this afternoon in Switzerland. No problems at all.How did you get an update in Switzerland for Galaxy 9000?
Can anyone help me out with a couple of Froyo queries?
1) I have a Galaxy S 16GB on Vodafone UK, and the upgrade formware option within Kies reports that "the device's firmware cannot be updated". Does that mean that I just have to wait for Vodafone to release their version of the firmware through Kies, or will I have to take my handset to a Vodafone shop?
2) I have read about using a registry hack so your handset is effectively detected by Kies as an unbranded device. However I have also read that later versions of Kies won't work with phones that have been flashed this way. Is this actually the case?
Surely if a handset has been flashed with an unbranded firmware, surely that is how Kies will identify the handset in the future. How will it still know that my device was originally on Vodafone?
Thanks in advance guys.
@zh@r, 08 Nov 2010it is not fake ! it is just a pakistani varient just like epic 4g actually epic 4g is not gala... moreThis phone is not officially launched in Pakistan. All you get are UK imports and those imported sets are Galaxy S. The warranty provided for these is just local and doesn't cover hardware faults.
US version vibrant and Captivate are also available but wont come with warranty.

Lego?
Hardware rocks, software sucks.. just to let Samsung people aware of that. website take certain amount of time to load (JAVA SH..) software update doesn't work keep downloading and instaling and after all nothing.. firmware 2.2 not published yet for the middle east WHY... WHY... WHY... ???
