2/21 - Samsung Epic Maintenance Release - EB13 (Android 2.2)

2/21 - Samsung Epic Maintenance Release - SSmiley Very Happy700.0.5S.EB13

The upgrade to Android 2.2 (EB13) was suspended on 2/24 due to issues  experienced by a small number of customers.  The upgrade is no longer  available over-the-air or from Samsung’s website.  Additional  information will be posted on the community when it becomes  available.   

Many have upgraded and are experiencing no problems.   For those who are experiencing problems, you may want to read through  some of the discussion threads.

Important Notes:
- The new software version is: SSmiley Very Happy700.0.5S.EB13
- Access the Samsung Epic Maintenance Release Blog for install instructions

- Released in stages beginning at 9PM on 2/21, with 100% of devices (on DI18) having received the update

  within 4 days

- Update: EB13 is also available via an OTW download on Samsung's site.  The OTW update will wipe your device, so

  perform a backup prior to updating.  I assume this can be used to take your device from an older release to EB13

  (please comment on this post if you can validate this).  You can access the download here:

UPDATE 1: SD Card Index

If you are experiencing issues with the Camera, Media Player, Gallery, or SD card, refresh your SD Card Index following the steps below and power cycle your device to ensure the refresh takes effect:

Menu->Settings->Applications->Manage Applications->Select All->Scroll down to Media Storage->Select Clear Data

Update 2: Calendar sync

(solution from Dennis Staub...thanks!)

MENU>SETTINGS>APPLICATIONS>MANAGE APPLICATIONS

Select "All" in the grouping at the top and then select "Calendar" then under "Storage" select "Clear data".

Then go back to the App list and select "Calendar Storage" and do the same. Then open your Calendar then

MENU>SETTINGS>CALENDAR  SYNC>Manage Accounts(Select your account) then un-check it, then  re-check it then go back to the calendar and check to see if the  appointments have sync'd for you.

Why not just post a download link and keep the strain off of the 3G network?

Re: 2/21 - Samsung Epic Maintenance Release - EB13 (Android 2.2)
