Oh well, I'll be interested to see if anything official actually comes from it and what they will supposedly be fixing. Once you load up all the patches and a custom kernel there is not much in the way of updates needed, but for stock folks I feel sorry for the awful keyboard skips and weak GPS.

I'm sure this is just a maintenance update.

Could be an early ics build in disguise. They've done that before.

Not on the Epic they haven't and not going to. It would take them a year to get ICS working on this. 2.3.X is Gingerbread...period.

There were some gb builds marked as froyo. Just wishful thinking on my part.

hope some reboots problems addressed as well....

The reboot issue is the only major issue I've seen with EI22. The GPS issue is easily resolvable. I hope they fix it because I sure as hell have failed in my attempts.

I agree. I'm wondering if the reboot issue is something deep enough in GB that the fix requires the version changes to 2.3.6?

The reboot issue is caused by a bug in the kernel. A bug in the kernel and hardware flaws are the only two thing that can cause spontaneous reboots.

+1 to that.

I requested Gtalk for our Epics be available from both the Android Market Team, and the Gtalk team itself, I would be LMMFAO right now if this is how it went down.

Android Market Team: Gtalk team, a user has cordially requested you "ok the Gtalk.apk to be seen and downloaded by SPH-D700 users on the Android Market.

Gtalk Team: Sure thing! Oh wait, we're testing Gtalk.apk, and while he assured you guys (and us) that it would natively work, there's a few bugs.. we'll be sure to contact the Samsung Devs responsible for the SPH-D700 and tell them we have the updated files for this to work, thanks for the heads up Android Market Team!

Gtalk Team: Hey Samsung Devs, a user on Gingerbread brought up a good point, with native front-facing camera support, Gingerbread isn't quite "finished" unless our Google Video chat is working, don't fret, we have the files necessary, it should be a quick fix, here you go!

Samsung Devs: *facepalm* we just released EI22 and it took a MONTH for Sprint to trust us and OTA it, but thanks.. looks like it's back to the drawing board.

Samsung Devs: Hey Sprint, we have another incremental update, should fix a few bugs, not as big fix as EI22 but still necessary, sorry we didn't include it.

Sprint: You sons of.... fine, we're cool. But you BETTER have Ice Cream Sandwhich up your sleeves for our Flagship phone or we're throwing down, YOU HEAR ME?!

Samsung Devs: We can try.


Lol... This story is of course made-up by me just now, but if it entertained you, don't mind a thanks getting hit

Afterall, I did request Gtalk.apk from Android Market and the Gtalk team, that part of the story wasn't a joke. lol

There is such a low percentage of people experiencing random reboots still and even less of a percentage within the pure stock users out in the world. So I don't think that will change. Probably adding features like Gtalk with video and maybe enabling TV out...yeah right!
