US Cellular Samsung Mesmerize Android 2.2 Froyo update now available

Amazingly enough, some Android smartphones have still not been updated to Android 2.2 Froyo, an OS version that was introduced last May. Yes, almost one full year has passed, and some manufacturers and carriers are still working on getting those Froyo updates out, even if in the meantime a new version of Android has been announced – 2.3 Gingerbread.

One of the worst offenders on the update front has been Samsung, which has taken its sweet time to update its Galaxy S line of Android-powered smartphones, the best-selling last year, to Froyo. In fact, US Cellular has just made the Froyo update available for the Samsung Mesmerize, its customized version of the Galaxy S.

The download is available on this page. Before doing anything though, make sure you read through the What’s New Guide (PDF link) and the Install Guide (PDF link).

The update is not over-the-air. None of the Galaxy S updates, were, which makes us think that Samsung simply doesn’t know how to deliver OTA updates (yet?). You’ll therefore need a computer to perform the update, and Samsung’s Kies Mini desktop software. The aforementioned guides have all the necessary details. Happy updating!
