Samsung AllShare DLNA workaround patched

It's confirmed this time around. Samsung has finally patched the AllShare app to fix the glitch that enabled Focus and Omnia 7 owners to use DLNA and stream content to and from supported devices. Unfortunately Samsung seems to be dedicated to leaving us 1st-gen handset owners in the dark with the latest features.

While we previously brought some good news to the table when reports came in that the manufacturer patched the app and the glitch remained operational, it's game over now folks.

Thanks NaterBater for the heads up!

Last time I get a Samsung phone. Not that DLNA support is a must have for me but artifically locking out older gen models from new features is just poor form.

Agreed. Samsung also basically broke Bluetooth headset support in the last firmware update. They lowered the Bluetooth volume for text-to-speech and TellMe so far that it isn't even usable anymore. I rolled back to the prior firmware, but I think when my contract is up I'll be picking up an HTC or Nokia phone. I feel like Samsung is too worried about making Android more appealing than Windows Phone by doing things like this. HTC and Nokia are clearly making Windows Phone a priority.

MS should really try to manage OEMs a little so that things like dont happen.
