Gear Diary has the goods on an update for the Samsung SCH-i760 that Jack reviewed last year. This was a super cool WinMo phone that hit Verizon last year. It’s good to see older phones get the upgrades!

    Finally! I’m downloading this right now! Funny thing is I checked Samsung’s site early this morning and no mention of the ROM update. I hope it doesn’t break anything… ;-)

    And within 24 hours, Samsung has pulled the update. Download links no longer work. No explanation yet, but the folks at PDAPhoneHome are reporting lots of troubles with the update utility: http://pdaphonehome.com/forums/samsung-sch-i760/113732-wm-6-1-install-problems.html
