Thank you for reading! I used I570EXXJD1 firmware which i got from http://samsung-firmware.webs.com/
You can find a guide to update your phone's firmware here:
DISCLAIMER: Following the above steps is highly risky and WILL VOID the warranty of your device (if you flash the firmware of another region, which I have done as 2.1 is not there for India). If you do not know what you are doing, there is a high chance you will brick your phone and I do not take responsibility for that. If you are not confident of flashing, then wait for the official 2.1 Update for India from SAMSUNG (hopefully that will happen)
would like if some one could put up all country where they launched offical update to 2.1 just to get time frame when others would get it
I bought it last March with pre-installed 1.5 (Cupcake) version. What intrigue me to keep hold on this phone, is last week email respond from Samsung Center Indonesia they had the 2.1 (Eclaire) firmware this April. It does, and mine just updated with new firmware (official updates) in Samsung service center.
It's great, bluetooth works, camera menu added, android market exist and pantheon launcher with compatibility with added samsung widget give this handset more features.

For those of you who are facing difficulty in procuring a i5700, rumor has it that samsung has stopped the supply of i5700 in the indian market as they are going to re-launch the phone with Android 2.1 (Eclair) pre-installed out of the box. Also one shopkeeper told that this model is selling like hotcakes and they are finding it very hard to cope with the demand. he told that supply shortage from the part of Samsung may be to create artificial scarcity.
