Stock Android 2.1 experience greets the Samsung Galaxy S

Stock Android 2.1 experience greets the Samsung Galaxy S
There have been some purists out there that have been clamoring to see Samsung's TouchWiz interface on the Samsung Galaxy S be replaced or offered with the stock Android experience. Although some find it appealing and useful, others of course see it as rather tasteless to their eyes – but thankfully, someone out there was listening to pleas of many. Hackers quickly got started in getting the stock Android 2.1 experience ready for the high-flying Android handset, and although it's still relatively in the early stages, it's turning out to be promising nonetheless. One of the bigger bugs that need to be flattened out is the camera application – especially when its not in tip top functioning form right now. Slowly and gradually, we'll probably see a fully functional and hopefully satisfying experience that Samsung Galaxy S owners can rightfully be content with. Now the only thing to one-up this whole project, which is of course another big one on its own, is to bring the stock Android 2.2 experience to this device. Any takers?

If you don't want the TouchWiz and Android combo, then don't buy the phone. I'm sure there is another phone that you can get that has stock Android. Why did this need to happen? People are just a bunch of whiney babies. Don't buy the phone if you don't want the operating system that comes with it.

rfrapp, the ONLY phone that comes stock android is the Nexus1 or Droid1... both which are either nolonger sold or getting end of lifed. The point of android is that its open. People do this because they CAN. Its not about being a whiney baby, its about giving someone tools and seeing what they create with it.

I think this is great, all the stock androids have been fazed out, The N1, G2, Droid, Moment, everything else runs custom ui's. I know it's personal preference but I've always loved stock android much more then any ui.

i do have to say though, even though i dont run any of the samsung widets or programs on my vibrant, i do enjoy alot of their little tweaks to the UI. Let me tell you how easy it is to find apps when you've got a hundred or so downloaded, with the pages going left to right with a "go to page" bar at the top, instead of having it all in 1 large scroll page. I realize thats a bit of an apple copy, but its nice regardless.
