Guide: Install Android 2.2.1 Update DK28 on Epic 4G

UPDATE: Full SPH-D700-DK28-8g-rel.tar.md5 ODIN FLASH HERE.

Instructions: Update Android 2.2 Froyo for Epic 4G
Android 2.2 Epic 4G Instructions

Intended for those going from stock Android 2.1 (DI18) to the latest firmware. Others, see here and choose the alternate method using Odin.
  1. Download the required update.zip file
    Mirror: http://www.multiupload.com/EBDH959PPM
    Mirror 2: http://vps.ian.im/update.zip
  2. RENAME the file to “update.zip” (If you get an error while flashing, your file might accidentally be named "update.zip.zip" due to Windows' file renaming system. Simply rename it to "update" to make it update.zip and flash)
  3. Move the file to your USB storage on the Epic 4G. Place it in the root folder, the highest up folder.
  4. Boot your device into “recovery mode” (if you don’t know how: click here)
  5. Apply the sdcard update.zip from Recovery Mode
  6. Congratulations! You now have Android 2.2.1 Froyo (DK28) on your Samsung Epic 4G from Sprint!

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Will I lose root?
    • Yes.
  • Can I still install themes?
    • Previous themes will probably be incompatible with this release until developers re-create them. Just know you will lose your themes.

Troubleshooting Errors
If you rooted with the old method from joeykrim, you'll need to re-root or un-root using the new method.

Once you've updated, you can One-Click Root!

Plug in your device, you should get an option in Notifications bar to "mount USB storage" -- do that. Then you'll see the Epic 4G's internal storage has been mounted on your computer. From there you can copy-paste the update.zip to your device!

If you don't see that option in your notifications bar... try going into settings > Applications > and enable USB debugging. Then plug in your device and you can pull down the notifications bar and see Mount USB Storage.

And if you're already on Froyo, you can just use the .tar file. I noticed on your website it still says the .tar file is not available.

Anyone try this yet?

If you mount your phone, there should be two separate mounts. One for your external SD and one for internal storage!

If you're not on DI18 and don't wish to flash back, you can just use this, which is based on the full DK28.
