How To Download And Install EB01 Froyo On Samsung Fascinate

Samsung Fascinate is the name used by Verizon for the Samsung Galaxy S model, in order to distinguish it from the other model’s names: Epic, Vibrant and Captivate which are the names used by other carriers to distribute the Samsung Galaxy S.

The EB01 Froyo isn’t the full version, but a build edition that it appears to work for the Samsung Fascinate, while the full edition of Android 2.2 Froyo should be available for all Galaxy S phones in the next few months. The EB01 Android 2.2 Froyo build has been leaked on the internet and along with it, it came out the installation guide and so you will be able to install Froyo EB01 on your Samsung Fascinate.

Before the EB01 build of Android 2.2 Froyo, there was the DL30 built which was somewhat disappointing as it had some small bugs, while the new EB01 Android 2.2 Froyo version looks to run much faster and no major bug has been reported.

So, if you install the EB01 Froyo for your Samsung Fascinate, you will notice that the Gmail and Gtall apps are supported with the Adobe flash featured. Also, it uses the Bing as the default search engine, but Verizon also added the Google Search, while the Google Nav and Google Maps should still be downloaded individually. You will be able to choose from 3 different font styles: Cool Jazz, Choco Cooky and Rosemary, for other fonts you will have to search and download them.
