I have a moment and i was just checking the hardware on it, whoever posted the moment running arm11 haven't done their research.. Looking through my hardware on my moment it's showing me and ARM6. Sadly it's running in the same family as the first nintendo DS just with slightly tweaked graphix capabilities..
Sprint is pushing 2.2 on to the Intercept (Moment 2, but same CPU) as of December ~15. It features hotspot capability, among other things. Does this change the policy Sprint has on updating the original Moment with 2.2? Can we get the code and load once we have root? Anybody know if you can take the Intercept image and load it on the Moment?
PS. Sprint can't stop this anymore. The Supreme Court ruled that companies can't restrict apps, etc (a la Apple). So that should go for Sprint as well on controlling versions of Android on phones.
There is a semi-working and stable version of Android 2.2 working for the moment. No flash, but they've done more than Samsung has done of their own device.
Just thought I'd let you all know.
I just spoke to a Samsung representative and I was told that Froyo (Android 2.2) update would be released from Samsung via OTA. Of course I could not get a date. I know it takes awhile to test out and fix bugs, but really? Android 2.3 is out and 3.0 is in the works, and an update for a current hardware platform can't be released? I wonder if Samsung told Sprint about this?
even if samsung says they are upgrading to 2.2 for the moment. sprint has to agree, test and release it. i'm wishing android was a bit more like windows 7 and iphone software-wise. if 2.2 is beneficial and to the moment i suggest they upgrade it. we all know 2.2 is possible for the moment cuz the intercept has it. total bs on sprints part. i'm disappointed at samsung and sprint. i since ditched my moment and upgraded to a lg optimus s, comes with 2.2 and fast as hell. the only thing the moment had for me was the keyboard.
Yea I had a moment and rooted it as well. It seemed like the battery life lasted longer.. and it wsa pretty cool to use tethering... and the live wallpapers were dope... other than those not too much seemed different. how ever the Rom that I used made my moment restart itself alot. I got fed up with it and finally got the evo shift
I rooted my Moment and installed a custom Froyo 2.2 ROM that was ported from a Trasfom from the folks over at SDX and my Moment is now a different phone. The GPS works, no data lock, no mysterious airplane mode, it is now fast and responsive, battery life is extrodinary. Plus the wifi tether is awsome. I recomend it for anyone who does not have the option to replace it, since that would still be the ideal choice.
I have t-ROM_EB28_v2.2.2. All the step by step instrutions to root and install this one is at SDX developers. You fist have to put on basicEB28 but it reflashes and does everthing for you to then put on 2.2.2 it even includes the custom kernel you will need too.
