Samsung Galaxy S gets Android 2.2 Froyo Beta Firmware (XXJPK build)

September 24, 2010, By Alex Ion

Since Samsung decided to delay the official release of Froyo (Android OS 2.2) until late October, the Galaxy S users who feel brave enough can flash a new BETA firmware which just surfaced the internet a few hours ago.

Labeled as an Internal Release, the XXJPK package has many previous reported bugs fixed so all I can say is that Samsung is definitively listening to its customers.

Just to mention a few improvements, the new release includes better boot times, reduces lag while navigating, Flash 10 in-browser integrated support and faster GPS lock. Even though benchmark scores may not show much of a difference, this leaked firmware really is improved. You can notice when installing multiple store applications at a time. Before the update, the phone would lock up. Now it just flies through it.

If you got a hold of the new XXJPK and managed to flash it, tell us your opinions in the comments section below.
