Many of you out there using the Samsung Galaxy S will be happy to find out that the wait for Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread for your smartphone is over — or at least it will be soon when the Gingerbread update hits your KIES software.
Google Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread with baseband version I9000XXJVK, build number GINGERBREAD.XWJVB and build date of April 8 has surfaced in some KIES softwares according to reports. Samsung has had a little bit of trouble updating all the Galaxy S smartphones to Froyo — especially the carrier variants — but we hope they will overcome the obstacles with Gingerbread as there were already some delays in the updating process.
If you’re in a region that got the update and have successfully applied the refresh, let us know of your findings in the comments below.
Update: So far reports of sightings are coming in from the Nordic countries, Germany plus Australia and, unless Samsung pulls the update — which we’ve seen before and pray will not happen — the roll-out process will continue to expand to other regions too.
