Upgrade it to the newest version (Gingerbread - 2.3).

You can even install KitKat (4.4) if you want. Not officially though.

I find the easiest way to upgrade from 2.2 is to use the Samsung Kies software and upgrade to ginger bread thru that, so that you can use download mode. Then use the JVU Odin package and cf-root to prepare your phone to flash one of the latest roms. Always best to flash in steps using cm roms cm9 to whatever base of rom you want to use. It's whats I do and everything is always rock stable and clean for me.
