If you’re the owner of a Samsung Galaxy Tab from Telstra, you’ll be happy to know you can now update your not-quite-outdated device to Android 2.3.3 ‘Gingerbread’. We received word from a few users that the update was available, and then Geoff (our resident Podcast Jedi) sent us a screenshot confirming the update was rolling out via Samsung Kies. And if that isn’t enough evidence for you that the update is available, @SamKiesUpdates even tweeted the update was available a week ago. Clever. So connect your Galaxy Tab to Kies and let us know how you go! Enjoy.

I have just gone through the painful experience of in stalling Keis to do this update – on an old XP machine I just keep for doing my Tax. I forgot how time consuming it was keeping a windows PC up to date – about five re-boots later and I had the tablet connected to Keis. Wish they had a linux tool instead.It offered the upgrade OK and it went through the motions to start and at the download to tablet phase it hung there and I got a windows message to say there was a problem with the USB… Read more »

Holy hell Kies is rubbish.  I haven’t used it before so I install it, update to the latest version and then it asks me to update Kies before I can upgrade the firmware – and when I click on the button it tells me I have the latest version…  If anyone has any ideas please post here – I’m on my third install attempt and getting frustrated after waiting so damn long for Gingerbread.

Yes that was my problem. Just uninstall/ reboot/ install KIES a couple of times to get it to work. I also read somewhere that KIES is less buggy with a 32bit version of Win7 or XP.

How did they manage to change the background color in the menus? Is that the default color system wide? The screenshot above looks good, a lot better than generic black background menus found in most Androids.

The background has been that way since the tab was released. Samsung would have made quite a lot of theme changes to make it that way,

Ive applied the update, and the theme has gotten a bit odd. the white and blue is still fine, but in some areas there is a clash between the 2.3.3 default dark items and Samsung’s own changes to the theme, such as in the system tray and popups.
