Samsung Epic 4G Touch Software Update - EK02

Enhancements/Fixes:

- 4G Sprint Hotspot disconnects when in a phone call

- Radio loses signal and may require power cycle

Important Notes:

- Software version is: SSmiley Very Happy710.0.5S.EK02

- Released in stages with 100% of devices having received the update within approximately 10 days

- Refer to the Samsung Epic 4G Touch Software Updates for install instructions

12/15 update - for those devices where the update has started but did not complete successfully, there will be a fix

                      available soon.  The target is next week, but nothing 'official yet'.  I don't have information on whether

                      it will be a new OTA push or available only via the Service Centers, but will post an update as soon

                      as I learn more.

How about wifi constantly searching even when connected?

How about weak radios?

How about slow data speeds?

How about excessive sound when recording video?

How about GPS updating its cache faster to get a lock?

Nice!  I just picked up this phone a few days ago and the LOS issue was my only concern about getting it.  Since I had read there was a fix on the way I decided to get it anyway.  Glad the update is here and hopefully it solves everyone's issues.

There really should be a method to grab this update instantly for devices.  Many users have suffered from LOS too long to wait until the servers push the update.  Unlike HTC phones, we can't "check for updates", we are at the whim of the Sprint Selective Servers.

actually you can check for updates. menu settings about phone system updates firmware updates

Update your software:

Software will be automatically downloaded to your phone

1.  A system update screen will prompt the user to 'install now' or 'install later'

    If 'install later' is selected, a reminder will be sent once or twice a day to install the update

     If 'install now' is selected, the phone will power off and back on to complete the software update

OR

Check for updates

1.  Go to the Home screen

2.  Tap Menu > Settings > About phone > System updates >Update Android

3. Your phone will automatically download and install any available updates.  You may need to power your phone off and back

     on to complete the software update.

So it seems you don't have to wait for the "whim of the Sprint Selective Servers"

mmark27_,

     There are some issues that were not noted in the official "Enhancements/Fixes" list that are being addressed in this maintenance release such as a GPS issue. So it's possible some of the other items you mentioned may be addressed as well.

Even when manually checking for updates, it will not find any unless you are already selected by Sprint.

Even when Google release OTA's for the developer phones(G1/N1/NS), it is not a one shot deal, it is always in waves.

well, if that worked for you, then you have been chosen by the Sprint Selective Servers.  Cause it ain't working over here.

It isn't an update from the "firmware" section.  It's an update from the "Update Android" section....which you can't ping the servers at Sprint like you can with HTC phones.
