If you are a Samsung Omnia 7 owners who isn’t afraid to void your device’s warranty just get you self ready to flash with te first Mango firmware later today. An engineering version I8700XXKH2 dated August will soon be leaked for our own pleasure. A flash able version of the I8700XXKD1 NoDo firmware dated April will also be leaked just in case you want to mess with it. Just keep in mind that both firmwares are not official releases, especially the Mango one which seems to be the RC1 of the final code slated to be rolled out later this year. Which should expect update SoC, Motion sensors and Camera drivers though.
Firmware: I8700XXKH2. (Mango)
Filesize: 355+/- MB (.rar file)
XX = Europe
K = 2011
H = August
2 = Version
Depending on when it’s leaked I’ll try to update you on the situation, try to flash my handset and report back my findings.
Update: is now out and available here. From the looks of it the whole thing may not be worth the effort (remember this is just an engineering firmware with the RTM OS code that we already have). The firmware version seems to be a tiny jump from the KC1 firmware (2418.104.22.168 vs 2422.214.171.124) and the Radio went from 24126.96.36.199 to 24188.8.131.52.
Update: Don’t worry though, I’ll post back my findings once it’s all said and done. Don’t hesitate to report back in the comments below though.
Update: You can download the modified flasher here if you wish to install this T-Mobile engineering firmware.
Update: I flashed it on my handset. Check out my first impressions here.
