Samsung Galaxy S I9000 update for Android 2.2.1 is available through Kies
If you happen to call the original Samsung Galaxy S I9000 as your handset of choice, you'll be glad to know that a new firmware update is available for the device that brings the venerable smartphone up to Android 2.2.1.

However, it doesn't appear to be rolling out to all region from the onset, rather, users in Sweden report that they're seeing it being pushed through Samsung's desktop application Kies. The upgrade actually addresses some stifling lag issues seen with the device and patches up some other bugs and security glitches. In fact, owners who upgraded their handsets report that they are experiencing a significant boost in speed now.

Granted that Sweden is the first to get in with this new firmware update, there is no concrete indication on when other regions will start to see it as well - but you can only hope it'll be swift.

JPY has been out for about 2 months (albeit not on Kies). Its not a bad update, but certainly not 2.3....

2.2.1 also brings in OTA kies support - about fekking time!

You are wrong.

2.2.1 supports OTA updates - why don't you download the latest firmware pack fromwww.samfirmware.com install it yourself (current EU build is actually JS3) using Odin, go to settings -> about, then select "update".

If you need further evidence, go check out XDA Developers.
