Good news if you own T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S 4G. The update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread for your smartphone has finally been released by Samsung and T-Mobile, almost nine months after the Galaxy S 4G became available, and about 11 months after Gingerbread was first unveiled – but who’s counting?
Well, if you have the Galaxy S 4G, today you shouldn’t be counting. You should focus on getting the update onto your device. And that isn’t as simple as it usually is, for this isn’t an over-the-air update. That means that it won’t just magically appear on your phone – you’ll have to use a computer to apply it.
You’ll need Samsung’s Kies Mini software on your PC, and that will help you update. Full instructions are available here, where you’ll also find out how to perform the update if your computer is a Mac.
The update brings some camera and Wi-Fi enhancements alongside a security patch and the usual Gingerbread bits. After applying the update, your phone will be on software version T959VUVKJ6.
