Finally there is some good news for all Samsung Moment users who were sick and tired of subtle modem crashes which let to even emergency call restrictions. The update, DJ07, is on the roll now over the air, that will not only fix the modem crashing plus call suspension issue, but will also fix the flawed proximity sensor along with giving your lock screen a whole new look.
It’s a shame that this update is only a minor fix to the already installed Android 2.1 Eclair firmware and is not much awaited for, Android 2.2 Froyo update. According to Sprint’s official forum, here are the features and specs of this minor firmware update for Samsung Moment:
- - The new software version is: S:M900.8.OS.xxxx (see below)
- The new build number is: Eclair:DJ07
- - If upgrading OTA (over-the-air), the Baseband version and Build number will not match. (Menu > Settings > About phone). Below is an example
- of what you will see if you upgraded to DJ07 OTA and you were previously
- on version DI06:
- Baseband version – S:M900.8.OS.DI06
- Build number – ECLAIR. DJ07…
For those folks, who miss their chance with OTA, the DJ07 Eclair update for Samsung Moment will also be available for manual download here, starting November 3rd. This pretty much explains that there won’t be any Froyo update for Samsung Moment for at least first week of November.
Here is how you can get your phone updated:
- The first step is to keep your phone connected over a WI-Fi network. Connecting over Wi-Fi will deplete any chances of the update messing up.
- Once the update downloads it’s self, you will get a system screen prompt for asking you to “install Now” or “Install Later”.
- Select “Install Now” and wait for teh procedure to finish.
- Once the installation is complete, you phone will reboot itself. Now wait for the phone to reboot and then go to settings > About Phone > and your firmware should now go like “Eclair:DJ07”.
We won’t give a heads-up to all those who have already rooted their handset for installing this update. It has been widely observed that installing official OTA updates either caused temporary problems and also can result in a brick.
