Following the second ROM update earlier this month, Samsung just announced and released another firmware update for the Galaxy GT-I7500. According to Samsung's press information, the new Galaxy ROM (I7500XXII5_VIAII5) is still Android 1.5 (Cupcake) but should again improve the device snappiness, stability and improved battery run-time. Furthermore, the digital compass was improved to work better with applications like Google Maps, Sky Maps and Wikitude. Also it's possible now to send bitmap MMS messages. Like the previous ROM update, this ROM update also includes the new "Switcher" application.

Also improved was the screen-unlock by reducing the unlock-time to 0.5 seconds. The new ROM is now available via Samsung's New PC Studio and Samsung recommends a factory reset after the ROM update was applied.

Cheers ~ Arne

Sorry, but this post is kinda lame.

The Switchers app was already there in the H8 update, and that's what the screenshot is of. In I5, Switchers is more colorful: … 00x300.png

Can anyone actually get this update? New PC Studio hasn't worked with my I7500 since I used it to do the last update.
