Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S can now upgrade their smartphones to Android 2.2, or Froyo, which is available through an unofficial ROM or firmware update.
The update is said to be an actual test build of Android 2.2 operating system for the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone. But, the update comes with a warning that the users should install the ROM at their own risk as it still contains a few bugs such as crashes and freezing while browsing the web.
