Default Whens the New Firmware?

Is there ever going to be a new Firmware released?
Or has Samsung gone all asian on us, and made us waste 200 dollars...

The P2 was released in 2008, and has been updated at least 5 times. The latest firmware is 5.10 and as far as I can tell it's very well polished. From my point of view the P2 is better at several things than the P3 which is the latest model and still getting firmware updates.

I got my brand new mint condition refurb P2 for 100 bucks w/ 90 day warranty from amazon. The only difference between the p2 and 3 is that the P3 is slightly faster on the fly with picture viewing, and that you can customize the icons and such, as well as some of the useless games. Outside of that, its near indentical and certainly not worth the extra cash for it.

The P2s latest firmware makes sure you cant even use themes. So try to use an older firmware, possibly euro and you can get your own themes.

1. you can use themes with latest P2 firmware, you just need emodio to do so.

2. no, seeing as how the P3 is already out, the chances of a new P2 firmware is very very slim.

3. How is not getting anymore firmware upgrades a waste of $200? It's a great player, and it can do things that some modern players can't even do...

4. asian jokes? not cool.

every1 ignored the other topic i made about it, so you might be alone in what you say.

5.10 eng firmware doesnt support themes, if so, they are not made public. How bout a guide if you say its possible or a place that has them? Because all files in my UCI folder say they are not supported.

no, samsung hasnt gone all asian (bad joke, im sure lots of asians will take offense to that) on us. the P2 was heavily updated through a fair few firmware updates throughout the first half of 2008. I'm actually a very happy customer since mp3 players rarely get firmware updates with new features added into it. However, you wasted $200 odd dollars on a P2 because you bought it after the P3 got released.

I bought my P2 before P3 was released.

My P2 is a bit retarded as well, I can't use any other themes.

I've read over the tuts, did everything correctly, and the themes wouldn't work.


And there's no feature on the MP3 Player that can beat the Ipod Touch's features.

Unless you count the dictionary, but I'm sure Ipods thousands of applications would have one

I'm just waiting patiently for another update.
