Users of the Samsung Vibrant (aka the Samsung Galaxy S) can get an update for their phones that fixes a few bugs here and there. The update, known as KB5, also updates Gmail and YouTube, boosting them to R9 versions respectively. There was also a DRM issue with the music player that prevented some music from playing. Samsung has fixed that as well.
The update is for T-Mobile customers and gives them some nice Android 2.2 (Froyo). Other improvements include a better email client, improved security, Remote Wipe is added, and a cleaned up the LCD framework. There’s also tweaks to MMS, Swype and a better image gallery. In order to get the update, users must use Kies Mini on the PC. Samsung also advises that before users proceed with the update, that they backup all images, music and data as the update will wipe the phone clean before installing.
Once backed up, users go to this link to obtain Kies Mini, download it to their PCs (XP minimum required) and install it. Then run the update. It’ll automatically acquire the phone and run the update, installing Froyo. However, users are also advised to be sure their battery is fully charged as a phone that dies during mid update may corrupt the update and cause problems with the phone.[via SamsungHub]
