Forget about the Samsung Galaxy S Froyo update! How would you feel about a fresh serving of Gingerbread? We’ve heard for a while that Samsung’s Android team has been hard at work on their Gingerbread update for the Galaxy S line, but if you’re not in the mood to wait around for a long, long, long time (I can’t remember, is that how long we waited for the Froyo update?) for Samsung to roll out the update you can grab it yourself over on XDA-Developers.
According to Lorbas, the Gingerbread ROM for the Galaxy S comes directly from Samsung. The build is skinned with TouchWiz 3 and has a functional Android Market, Swype, and even GPS.
As of now, the Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread build only works on the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 (European version), but we may see developers port the ROM to the U.S. variants of the Galaxy S sometime soon. To get a quick peek what Samsung’s Android 2.3.2 build on the Galaxy S looks like, be sure to check out the video below.
