Samsung Fascinate lands software update

The Samsung Fascinate (review) has a new 2.1 based software update ready to go, and (surprise surprise) it’s already been leaked online, waiting for eager modders to get their flash on. DL09, as it’s being lovingly referred to, features several new enhancements and improvements:

Enhancements:
+ Updated versions of preloaded applications, including V CAST
videos, City ID, VZ Navigator,® and Amazon Kindle.®
Improvements:
+ Ability to change the reminder time and alert tone for
calendar events.
+ Improved the update consistency of the feed and widgets.
+ Music now pauses if you unplug your wired headset or turn
off your Bluetooth® headset.
+ Improved stand-alone GPS performance.
+ Increased security by hiding your 3G Mobile Hotspot password
while typing.
+ Ability to open any PDF attachments sent in an email.
+ Ability to use special characters in corporate email passwords.
+ Enhanced backlight display for the bottom four buttons on
the device to now follow the device display timer setting.
+ Widgets now refresh based on the defined refresh time interval.
+ If already in a locked state, the device will now remain locked
when placed in the desk dock or car dock.

If you’re looking to grab the update and give it a once over, you can check out the stock Odin file in the *OFFICIAL* DL09.tar.md5 thread on XDA, or you can already download it “Doedexed, Zipaligned, De-Binged, and De-bloated” here. Of course, the usual your device – your responsibilities disclaimers apply.

If you’re waiting it out the old fashioned way, check out this instructional Verizon PDF to hold you over.
