Samsung Galaxy S 2.3 Gingerbread Update Suspended By Google

Vodafone owners of the Samsung Galaxy S were really excited over the weekend when it was reported that they would be upgraded to Android 2.3, Gingerbread starting yesterday, however the great news didn’t last long as Google has suspended the update.

According to a Vodafone Community Manager named “Tom” the rollout of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update was temporarily suspended because of an undisclosed issue with the update.

Vodafone posted the following message on their community page:

Due to an issue with the Gingerbread update for the Samsung Galaxy S, its roll out has been temporarily suspended by Google. Unfortunately, this means the Vodafone variant is not currently available to download through KIES.

As there are no known performance issues with the Vodafone variant of the device, we are working with Samsung to reinstate the roll out as soon as possible. We know this is frustrating for those Vodafone customers who have not yet been able to update their device and are working hard to address the matter with Samsung.

There was no mention of how long the update is temporarily suspended for. This isn’t the first time a Samsung update has been suspended, earlier this year the Sprint Epic 4G Froyo update was suspended midstream on February 25th and then resumed a month later on March 25th.
