I upgraded my Galaxy3 to Froyo (2.2) using Kies, after the upgrade the GPS doesn't seem to be working.. when I launch the 'Navigation' app, it just says 'waiting for location' and later I get a message "Your location is temporarily unavailable". Prior to the upgrade, it was working without any issues. Are there any known issues in the Froyo upgrade? Thanks

i had upgraded my samsung 5801 to froyo on 09.05.2011.i checked its operating system in these 2-3 days and found below advantages and disadvantages are: advantages: 1. you can install apps to sd card.2. you can configure more than one gmail accounts3. voice recognition4. battery backup seems to improove a lil disadvantages: 1. no live wallpapers2. swype stoped working 3. youtube very slow, takes hrs to play a single video in normal sim (in vrevious version it was awesome, plays whole film without buffering, same sim card)4. main imp disadvantage is its music player volume decreases to half and i cant afford this thing...above all i cud bear but in case of music , NO COMPROMISE. I use poweramp (best music player in market) it was superb before in 2.1 but after update its too disappoiting...while driving i cant even understand what is the exact lyrics of the song...its too low volums...sucks! NO OTHER OPTION EXECPT GOING TO SERVICE CENTER AND REINSTALL ANDROID 2.1 . DEAR SAMSUNG PEOPLE.....DO SUMTHING PLEASE!! :( :(

Samsung is providing official Froyo update using Kies. Install the latest Kies and update the firmware. I did that yesterday and my phone is working fine since then on – It took me three attempts to get the firmware update as my download got terminated twice. Internet gets connected via wifi and gprs. Phone and messagin working. Swype is not working and can’t be unistalled.

I did this on my phone and it worked perfectly! It's (much) faster now and seems a bit more stable and responsive too... It's a bit of a risk to do but if it works it's well worth it! My biggest fear was that I had a operator blocked version of android 2.1 and I didn't know if it would mess everything up but turns out it's all the same! Thanks alot! Too bad samsung didn't bother to release this in Portugal but thankfully we have the internetz to fixe it! ;)

Ah! Please don't mind my previous reply. I forced the phone to shut down. I took out the battery, kept it that way for about 30 seconds, turned it on, and there you have it. I am currently done with factory reset. I will share my experinence later. Thank you

I also had the same prob. Just reset your phone (Settings –> Privacy -> System Restore) All your messages will go but the messaging application would start working.

Hi Madhu, I would recommend to reinstall the 2.1 Eclaire and then again install 2.2 following the steps mentioned above strictly. If it doesnt works then better be on 2.1. Suryakant
