Android 2.1 update leaked for Samsung Moment

Earlier this week we reported that Sprint had begun internal testing of Android 2.1 for the Samsung Moment and now the new firmware has leaked out. Android Police spotted the leaked ROM over at sdx-developers and it appears to be fully working. The leak actually contained two different test versions of the ROM with the latest build being compiled April 3, 2010.

If you have already hacked your Samsung Moment, head over to sdx-developers and read the thread to see if you want to flash this build. (I’ve never hacked a Moment, but the instructions look fairly simple.) Normal users should just sit tight because we expect the official release to happen later this month.

The build information for the leaked ROM is:

  • Firmware version: 2.1-update1
  • Baseband version: s:m900.8.os.dd03
  • Kernel version: 2.6.29
  • Build number: elcair.dd03

    The same 2.1 update for the Sprint Hero was leaked about a week ago on XDA, but this makes news instead? Before that leak, we had an even earlier one for almost a month…

    Interesting. In my Google alert for Samsung Moment, a variety of sites are posting about a leaked ROM while OZCarguide is saying that an OTA upgrade to 2.1 started rolling out today.

    I e-mailed them to ask if they had a qualified source for that claim since they seem to be the only ones reporting it.

      I’m fairly sure they’re full of crap.

      Guys it’s for real. At first I thought it was only for rooted phones but this morning I said “WTF” I’ll try it and it took me a moment to figure it out ( no phun intended ) but once I got the upgrade \flash process right it was a Piece of Cake and I PROMISE the update makes my 11 day old Samsung Moment look and perform like a Original Google Phone this is a Nice Update check it out for yourselves but I kid you not it’s for REAL no performance issues that I can tell.

        I have Pics but I can’t post them here My friend who is a Employee of the Now Network didn’t believe me either until I sent him a MMS today now he wants to get it as well trust me any this is a legit update and if they do anything it will only be minor the update is real. REMEMBER MY PHONE IS NOT ROOTED!!! Also, People,,, don’t speak negative about something until you know what it is you are speaking about…No one is forcing you to get the update.

    In my opinion, anything leaked is NOT the final version until Sprint/Samsung releases it through official channels. The leaked roms may not be feature complete.

    Will the public release of the Samsung Moment 2.1 update be a PC download like the recent firmware update or will it occur on the phone? TX.

    The most recent kernel build is the DD10, which takes some time to get running as you first have to flash DD03, then do some other stuff to get the newest build on there. That said and mine is running perfectly. I added PandaHome after the upgrade as I wanted more home screens. Even with PandaHome running when I run AppKill I have between 64 MB – 70 MB of free space, the MAX I ever had on Android 1.5 was 55 MB. Faster, seems more reliable and overall worth the effort.

    Check youtube and look for 2.1 android for Samsung Moment. The instructions are easy and the guy on the video gives you the files and the how to video.

    I have the new update on my moment. It is pointless without the pinchzoom and multytouch features I mean yeah you get better apps and your gallery is better but you don’t really use the live wallpapers because they kill your battery faster and as we all no these phones die fast enough as it is.

    I really hope they release the official version soon. I’m running 2.1 (actually posting this from it). It’s awesome but it’s a little buggy in this leaked version. It’s not unusable and it’s definitely better than 1.5 but it’s crashed a couple times.

    wil this update for the moment cost?

  • http://Website josh

    Please Sprint release the update! The wait is killing me!

    sprint will not release 2.1 until AFTER the moment 2 (shipping with 2.1) and the htc evo (shipping with 2.1) are released.

    inside source told me “it would not make sense to upgrade the moment and the hero to 2.1 because it would cut into their phone sales.”

    some are skeptical of my insight, but wait and see my child, wait and see!

    I am having so many issues with this phone!
