Default Update is here OTA for Samsung Captivate

check out the Engadget Article.



Everyone let us know how it went for you.

Did it install correctly?

Is your GPS performance any better?

How do you like the other features of the update?

Does your media scan actually run faster?

Let me help you here.... link to article:

I had to do the date forward trick to get it to download. It downloaded and installed 100% successful. My phone is stock as the day I bought it. Some people say they have seen "failed" install from being rooted, but it still installs.

Testing, and will report back.

Yeah, I got the failed update and now it won't power on at all.

If anyone knows what to do please let me know.

It seems like anyone with a rooted phone might get an error, but it still installs fine. First impressions is actually really good. The phone feels a little faster. The videos are smoother and so is the gallery. When I opened maps it found my location instantly instead of getting the %waiting for location" message. Accuracy was 1000 meters, but I didn't turn on the GPS.

Also the signal strength and internet speed seems much faster. And stronger for me

Just updated mine. Gps is a lot faster! I can even get a lock when indoors now.

I can no longer access the gps menu through the dialer though.

The OTA update now allows me to go into the three button recovery mode. I couldn't do this before.
