Win, 17 Jul 2011Not exactly true. Not every Australian Galaxy S are actually still stuck on 2.2. If you had a ... moreActally, vodafone australia is still stuck with 2.2 and vodafone is so bad with communicating with its customers. I use vodafone aus and they never reply blog or never seem to care about updates:(
i'm now using korea version of galaxy S (SHW-M110s) and i've been on 2.3.4 for about 2 weeks through kies.
first to lunch 2.3.4 after google.

But, Vodafone branded versions (and unbranded versions) of the Galaxy S actually has the 2.3.3 update already. Vodafone has a bad rep with their network. But they are far more better when it comes to updating their Android phones when compared to Optus and especially Telstra (the worst).
I have an ORO variant and still stucked to Android 221.
After updating to 221 Samsung Kies says:"This is the last version".
It's annoying to know that the rest of the world has Android 233 on their devices.
This is gonna be the last Gingerbread update to roll in Android and IC Sandwich will be the next. I'm so glad that Google is still trying to give Galaxy S I a slight future proofing despite of hardware-obsolescence.
Samsung has really waken up and they are now so impressive with their updates even for phones that have been around for a while.
Keep it up!!!!!!
AnonD-3575, 17 Jul 2011most of the "updates" are bux fixes, so im not so sure its a good thingOh really! you are so jealous... What makes you an expert to say that?
Give us a source about the relation between these updates and bugs or simply just SHUSH
Yes, and in my country we are still stuck with 2.2 for sgs i9000. I just hate these stupid firms that don't care about anything but their profits, don't want to say more because it is not nice.
To be honest, I don't really find this attractive in Android where it has taken such a long time (I mean gingerbread) to make use of the secondary cam for video calling. I've also heard it can only make video calls via third party software and not just regular 3g calls. Not too good. And Samsung takes a shit load of time to give updates for their devices, for Android and BADA as well. HTC is much better at providing updates while Nokia is the slowest. But at least Symbian had this video calling feature from a long time and works flawlessly. I just wished Nokia provided as good support as Android for Symbian 3.

Using SGS for the last 10mths, and so far there has been the 2.2 update, followed by the 2.2.1, then the 2.3.3. And now the 2.3.4 update on the way too.
Great support by Samsung for their regular updates for their oldest 'Droid!!
Keep it up guys!!
really?i bought my galaxy s 3weeks ago&its already on 2.3.4 firmware.
Now we just have to wait for the phone companies to realease it. We are still stuck on 2.2 here in Australia. Did not even get 2.2.1, nor 2.3.3 - OPTUS sucks big time!!!
On a differnt note - I see it is version JVP. I though Samfirmware had a JVQ version up as the latest...? Also does anyone know if flashing via ODIN can I just use the .pit file, the PDA file and Modem file .. whilst leaving the CSC file as the older version? I belive the CSC only contains the API etc... Am I correct?
1 month passed since i upgraded my sgs to android 2.3.4 from xda forums. there are jvp and jvq firmwares for 2.3.4
