Samsung Omnia HD JB1 firmware update now available

Samsung I8910 HD firmware


Samsung might be about half a month late but they’ve finally released the impending Omnia HD update. The JB1 firmware is now available for download via PC Studio 7. The firmware brings kinetic scrolling but unfortunately only in some parts of the interface. Other reported improvements are faster web browser, camera settings and other bug fixes.

However, one biggest gripe found in the new firmware is that it leaves the system memory with just 17MB as opposed to around 30MB previously.

As like always, users are advised to backup their data first and update the firmware.

    @vinod: you need to download PC Studio >> Connect your phone >> Let PC Studio find the latest firmware >> Update.

    @kunal: I tried the way you mentioned to update firmware of samsung omnia hd…. it says no new firmware available .. the firmware in my omnia is of month june 2009..

    Hi Kunal, I downloaded PC Studio as you instructed, but it told me “your Software is completely up-to-date Thank you for checking”
    This is my Software Version I89100DDIG3, Software Version date 17/07/2009. I am looking to update this to the latest hassle free rom.
    Please advice me what can be done next?

    william, vinod: Its the same prob that’s been faced by many. Samsung is an idiot providing different software for different phones. Since PC Studio didnt work…you can try KIES (another Samsung software) or to download official firmware.

    The link I mentioned needs you to flash it manually so if you’re uncomfortable doing it, prefer the easy software way.
