US Cellular Samsung Mesmerize Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread update now available

Wow, that was fast.

About one day after US Cellular let us know that it was working on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Samsung Mesmerize, its version of the Galaxy S, and that the update would be out “as soon as possible”… here it is.

Yes, the Gingerbread update for the Mesmerize is now out, waiting to be installed by eager individuals. What’s more, this will make your phone run Android 2.3.4, so the absolute latest version of Android designed for phones (unless your handset is a Nexus S 4G).

The update sadly isn’t over-the-air, so no installing without a computer here. Also, you need to have a Windows computer to do the deed. Backing up your data is something you definitely shouldn’t forget to do before you go through, since the update will erase everything.

Complete instructions are available in this PDF. Make sure you read it thoroughly before doing anything. To find out what this update brings, check out the info in this PDF. To download the update, go to US Cellular’s dedicated page for Android updates and follow the appropriate link.

    Does the update include the front facing camera and Led notifications?

    There is no front-facing camera on the Mesmerize; that’s a light sensor, I believe.

    I performed this upgrade last night … the only problem I had was with the instructions.  I needed to set USB Settings to Samsung Kies prior to powering down the phone and before connecting USB cable (USB Settings is grayed out when USB is connected).  After doing then following the instructions, the upgrade completed successfully and DID NOT wipe all my apps, txts, and other settings.

    Battery life is GREATLY improved, and I’m hopeful the call-dropping will cease as well!!
