Samsung Droid Charge Gets New Gingerbread Leak

Advertisement

Late last month, we caught a glimpse of a leaked Gingerbread update for Samsung’s Droid Charge, followed shortly thereafter by the release of said software. Yeah, it was Gingerbread, sure enough, but it had so much broken that it only seemed worthwhile to flash as a curiosity. Now a slightly-newer version of the software is available, and is reportedly a whole lot more stable.

Whereas the last leak was marked as version EG2, this one is EP1F, based off of Gingerbread 2.3.4. Earlier, there were problems with text messaging, HDMI output, and a dead-in-the-water mobile hotspot. We can’t confirm it just yet, but those issues all seem to be fixed in this new release. There’s still the same problem with not seeing all available apps in the Android Market, but that feels minor in comparison. One issue that does plague this release is a reported drop-out bug when attempting to stream music, and video may not be working in Google Talk.

If you want to give this a shot, check out the forum thread in which the previous leak was released for instructions on installing the software to your Charge.
