Latest bada 2 firmware Online-S8500/S8530-XPKJ1

Samfirmware introduced new bada 2 firmware yesterday. Well, i missed yesterday to blog about it. Lets see, whats new in this firmware.  I have not yet flashed with this firmware, but our Forum Users have reported some significant changes in this firmware.

They said that Dolfin is much faster and responsive than before and there is a battery percentage icon on the top. Lock screen is very fast and task manager is redesigned. Have a look at completer changelog of s8500  below :

- Loading cursor smaller!
- On appstore themes you can acces directly Theme-settings
- Taskmanager design changed! You see the active apps!

      @gsgoldy11, It is not the wrong password.. The same thing happened to me, all you have to do is download the firmware again and then extract. (The file did not download properly, even though it says possible wrong password) It worked for me and I hope it works for you too.
