This is a video on how to install Android 2.2 on a Samsung Intercept. I installed in on my phone and on my son's phone.
You install it at your own risk. You should wait for Virgin Mobile to roll it out to you but I could not wait. Again doing this install and by passing VM has risks.

Thank you for being patient while we roll out the Froyo 2.2 update. We have noticed posts with links to non-official Froyo software updates and we STRONGLY advise to NOT use these updates.

Using a non-approved Froyo version could potentially corrupt your phone's software & will void your warranty. Manually updating your phone will also void the monthly insurance some customers may have purchased for their phones. Please be patient & wait for the Froyo update to come to you.
