I see this morning that I897UCJH2 (2.1) is available for the Samsung Captivate on samsung-firmware.webs.com. Anyone tried it yet? I am downloading it now...

I am currently running JM5 with RyanZA's lagfix so I'm hesitant to try a new rom.

Update: How To Flash This Firmware
See post #6 below for how to apply this firmware:

Update: Changelog (based on feedback to this thread as there is no official changelog)

Pros:
* Media Scanning is quicker
* Quadrant scores are a bit higher
* GPS lock seems to happen faster
* QuickOffice is included (though you can find it in the AT&T section of the Market on your Captivate
* prompt for action when plugging in USB cable is now enabled by default
* added YouTube HQ button

Cons:
* USB tethering removed (fix: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=761577)
* no SideLoading (fix: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=751934)
* no HSUPA
* "go into flight mode and turn on wifi" Market workaround removed (reported as untrue)

Recommended GPS Settings:
Dial *#*#1472365#*#*

Application Settings:
Operation Mode: MS based
Accuracy: 120

SUPL/CP Settings:
Server: supl.google.com

It's scoring a 909 in quadrant fully stock... which is certainly an improvement over the old ROM but still not blowing the doors off. So far it feels pretty reponsive, but the laggy crap normally crops up over-time and not instantly.
