OK, you patient Samsung Epix owners. Here you go. After suffering through forced slog dumps and the radio problems that came with a supposed hotfix, AT&T has released an honest to goodness ROM upgrade that actually tackles several issues.

  • "Slog Dump" Fix: On certain circumstances, the handset may report a “Slog Dump” error message. This software provides an update to the network layer which prevents the problem from occurring.
  • Missed Email Audio Notifications: A previously released cab file for notifications is included in ID1. This enables the EPIX to provide audible notifications alerts for your emails when the device enters an unattended power saving mode.
  • Outlook Notes SSP Support: The update contains the ability to synchronize the popular Notes feature available within Microsoft Outlook.
  • Ascending Ringtone: Ringtone behavior design was set to ascending/escalating volume during inbound call regardless of setting specified. With this update, the handset will act in accordance to the volume settings selected

So back up all of your important data (this is a ROM upgrade after all, which means hard reset and a virgin device), head on over to the download site, and read the instructions. Then read them again. And read them one more time, just in case you missed the part where it said to take out the SIM card or downloaded the XP updater instead of Vista. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Then get to flashing.
