US Cellular’s version of the ubiquitous Samsung Galaxy S, the Samsung Mesmerize, has just received a maintenance software update that fixes bugs and adds some security patches. It is for the latter that you should not postpone updating, even if you find you haven’t encountered the bugs that this update fixes.
And before you ask – no, this isn’t an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, your phone will still run Android 2.2 Froyo after it’s updated to the version released today, EE19.
This update fixes missing voice calls while playing YouTube content, alongside a force close when the Voice call menu was selected after setting a new default ringtone, a Google client ID change is also fixed, as are a couple of other things. Alongside these fixes come three security patches. For the full Release Notes, scroll to the end of this PDF.
Incidentally, the same PDF file linked above will also give you full update instructions. In short, this is a computer-assisted affair. The update isn’t going to reach your phone over-the-air. You need a computer to perform it, and a bit of Samsung software called Kies Mini. Getting it is detailed in the aforementioned PDF. To download the update, go here at US Cellular.
