Sprint To Restart Android 2.2 Froyo Update For Samsung Epic 4G

Samsung Epic 4G owners have been stuck without the Android 2.2 Froyo update that was promised but halted almost a month ago. But now it appears that Sprint and Samsung have worked things out and the OTA updates will resume starting Monday.

Sprint's first attempt to update the Epic 4G to Android 2.2 Froyo was plagued with various problems including messing up data connectivity and impairing access to media stored on the SD card. The only solution for many Epic 4G owners was to do a hard reset, which wiped out all their data.

The new update coming this Monday, March 21, will bring Epic 4G devices up to Android Froyo 2.2.1 EC05 and the entire process may take the whole week to finish as updates are rolled out in batches over-the-air. If you are an Epic 4G owner needing the update, be sure to backup everything first!
