Samsung Galaxy S Gets Nexus S Gingerbread OS

Samsung Galaxy S was slated to get a Gingerbread update according to Samsung Mobile India’s tweet. Although it’s not an update, the Galaxy S has now got a Nexus S kernel-based Gingerbread OS. Check the video below to see it in action.

Gingerbread on the Galaxy S looks to be going great guns, at least in the video. We’ve come to know that a few basic functions like Voice, WI-Fi and GPS don’t work at all. You can still take it as a preview to what an Android version 2.3 update on a Galaxy S would look like.

If you are interested in tweaking your Galaxy S phone, you can find a whole set of instructions on xda-developers site. The site has answers to random questions (like Am I French?) but should help you out with other queries. Also there are some weird things you might end up doing, like stopping an app by killing the app number! In case you’re not very keen on doing fancy stuff to your precious, here’s another video you can watch.
