Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 Froyo Source Code No Longer Available

October 15, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Yesterday, we had reported about Samsung’s release of the Galaxy S’ Android 2.2 Froyo update source code. Now, we have got disappointing news related to the matter. The source code has now been removed from download by Samsung.

Samsung had provided the Froyo update source code via its Open Source Release Center. This release was thought to be a first step toward the release of the update for the series of Samsung Galaxy S smartphones such as the Fascinate, the Vibrant, the Captivate and the Epic 4G, which are available from the four major carriers in the US.

As reported from Phandroid, it has now been confirmed that the source code is no longer available on Samsung’s OpenSource website.

Samsung has not yet revealed the reason for this removal. Most probably the download appeared a little early, and against the authority of Samsung itself.

This of course could have a negative effect for the Galaxy S users who are waiting for the Froyo update. But don’t forget that an unofficial Froyo ROM for the stock Galaxy S may still be on the way.

Up until now, there have been no hints from the company about a possible release date of the update. It is believed that the company wants to take all of the time it needs to make sure that the update is as bug-free as it can possibly be.
