Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 VoIP Bug [SOLVED]
Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 VoIP Bug [SOLVED]

One of the first things I did when I bought my Samsung Galaxy Spica was install SipDroid, and to my disappointment it didn't work. The sound came out of the back of the phone instead of the earpiece.

This turns out to be Just Another Samsung Bug (TM), but unfortunately the fix is not simple. The developers at samdroid.net have built patched kernels but you need to flash your phone to apply them.

However, for what it is worth, I've uploaded the files you need and some simple instructions on how to flash them on the Samsung Firmware Downloads page.

Hope you can fix your VoIP on your Spica because it's pretty handy.
