Leaked ROM Supports Claims That Epic 4G Will See Gingerbread Update Before Month’s End
With rumors of the Samsung Epic 4G getting Gingerbread running wild like Hulkamania in the ’80s, we can’t help but pour a little gasoline on the fire. Earlier in the month we received word that the original plan was for Sprint to deploy the highly anticipated Gingerbread update to a horde of hungry Epic owners. Almost immediately following suit, a few days later, Sprint goofed up and listed the Epic 4G as shipping with Android 2.3. This is pretty much the same thing that happened with the EVO 4G, right before it received its Gingerbread update. So what’s the going word these days?
Our inbox has been blasted with links and tips of what is being called an official Gingerbread ROM leak for the Epic 4G. We’ve checked into things a bit and saw that this install requires a little more know-how than the average ROM. If your curious to see details about how this whole thing works, check out what people are saying about it. In regards to an official push from Sprint, we haven’t heard anything saying otherwise. However considering how they like to delay updates on the fly, we wouldn’t bet the house on it just yet.
