If the Samsung Galaxy S family had a red-headed stepchild, Verizon’s Continuum would win the honors and the Continuum was released with Android 2.1 Éclair and hasn’t had an update since then, well for those of you who are rocking the phone, here’s some good news is the ROM for Android 2.2 Froyo has found its way onto the XDA-developer forums……………….

 

Samsung Continuum, unlike some other devices in the Galaxy S series have unique 480X96 sub display failed to catch as many eyes as Samsung may have hoped and has remained stuck on Éclair. While the Samsung Continuum is capable of some quite impressive feats that no other Android phone can do, one thing it cannot do is upgrade past Android 2.1 Eclair. Well, that was true until XDA forum member imnuts provided us with the leaked Android 2.2 Froyo build that Verizon and Samsung have yet to share with us. Alleviating the pains of the seemingly forgotten stepchild in the Galaxy S family, the EC03 update improves upon the previous DL17 update substantially by ushering in the JIT compiler among other notable changes. Currently, there are no customized kernels to go with this release, but you can be sure it won’t be too long before something pops up on XDA.

 Here is the update that everyone has been waiting for.  At the moment, I’m only providing the modem, and rooted, stock, deodexed version of the ROM. There will be a cleaned up version to go along with all of this in due time, but we’re currently working out some problems with it. I would like to note that despite this being the Froyo update, it is not without its own set of problems, and odds are you may never see another update outside of this from anywhere. However, the benefits of getting Froyo will outweigh the problems with it for most people, so have at it.

You will need a few things to get this, first, the downloads list here will be needed (obviously). You’ll also need to have CWM setup and know how to use Odin. Heimdall will also work for those of you not on Windows, but I’m not providing any instructions for flashing using Heimdall. Also note that you will want to wipe data or perform a factory reset before booting into Froyo to avoid any problems. While you may get away with not doing it, you could end up with several problems, so my recommendation is to wipe data. Also, you can flash the ROM first, or flash the modem first, which ever you want to do. There isn’t really a required order for it, as long as you do both parts.
