This german site apparantly has first-hand information that Samsung is planning to roll out the Froyo update mid-September, via Kies of course...
This makes me wonder how close to final the JPC update was...
Also, Kies ist just downloading an update (and taking forever to do it) which might also point at things approaching some kind of big release. I have no idea whether the GPS fixes and Lag fixes will be included in this mid-September release, but I'd guess it's pretty unlikely since the last info from Samsung was that they are "looking into it" implying that they don't really know yet. Maybe we'll at least see some improvement, test runs with Jm6, Jm7 and JPc indicate that GPS performance is being worked on at least.
We'll see what September will give us and then start hoping for October updates... ;)

I'm watching the new version of Kies trickle on to my PC as I type... I was thinking the same... is this a new Kies which won't brick Bell user's phones when they try to upgrade to Froyo!? It seems finding out what's new will take a while though... been downloading this update for about an hour already... and still have 37meg to go! :eek:S

I suppose this is in line with the same line of announcements that were stating that a Korean Froyo would be available by end of August...

I definitely think delaying past mid-September is a bad move. Many other high end phones using the official 2.2 builds for about a month or more.

Then again, the announcement on Korean Froyo turned out to give false hope to a guy like me. Someone was saying how Optus would be getting this because he heard from an Optus rep that they were. I stated at that time there are 3 days left in August and Korea hadn't been upgraded now we are entering the weekend and will probably end the weekend waking up on the 6th of Sept without Froyo, so if everything else gets delayed the same amount of time...it doesn't mean great things for the rollout.

That said, I do think the hardware is similar enough that I was originally surprised to hear they might get Froyo as many as two weeks before the next countr(y/ies). Maybe they will condense the rollout timeframe.

It would be nice if a changelog for Kies versions would be available.
Version 1.5.1.10074.45 is probably not official for SGS since it's not available under SGS's support pages, I'm wondering what have they fixed or changed.
But it probably couldn't get worse since Kies is a very shi*ty piece of sw...

Nice, I have been waiting for an announcement like this. Can't wait to get 2.2, mainly for the chrome2phone feature and of course Flash.
