Lightbulb [Modems] - (Froyo & Gingerbread) - WCDMA 850 enabled

Attached are CWM flashable 2010 & 2011 SGS modems that (for the most part) have the WCDMA 850 band within them. A I9000 based kernel (reoriented) is required for the I9000 modems to be usable on the Captivate, I am not responsible for bricking your phone if you use something else. I did some poking around with a hex editor to compare the files and was able to pull some info out:

It appears that most people are having better success with the "Aries" based modems. If you have trouble with the modems, please make sure your phone is utilizing the WCDMA 850 band and not 1900 by using the instructions below.

From the phone Dial Pad, when you enter: *#0011# you should see one of the following 3G bands:



When testing these modems please only report when connected using "WCDMA 850".

If you are on WCDMA 1900 and want to change to WCDMA 850,
1. From the phone Dial Pad, enter: *#2263#
2. From the "BAND SELECTION" menu select "[2] WCDMA BAND"
3. From the "WCDMA BAND" menu select "[5] WCDMA 850 (FDD V)"
4. Exit out of menu and check to make sure your band is now WCDMA 850 using *#0011#

Note: By default your "BAND SELECTION" is "AUTOMATIC", so if you want to revert your changes, repeat only steps 1 & 2 above, selecting "[1] AUTOMATIC" in step 2.

The quote below is from a great map showing the best modem per members actual experience for various areas of the country. It's a great resource, check it out and give your input!

From http://soggycashew.weebly.com/: After digging and digging through several threads I have come up with a list of CWM3 modem files for the Samsung Captivate. I hope this helps because I know its useful to have all the files in one place and not scattered throughout forums. I take no credit for creating these files I just have been collecting them to help myself and others and to keep them all in a general location. Enjoy and hope people make comments on what they would like to see on this site!
Looking for the modem dance?!
shoman94's instructions how to properly

Thanks to alphadog0 for giving hope that this *should* work.

The captivate matches up to all the frequencies - the Armani just adds 900mhz 3G band. So the Armani modem should work fine on AT&T IF GSMArena is correct:

Armani: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i901...rmani-3625.php
Captivate: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_i897_captivate-3408.php

If anyone is daring enough to try this out please post some feedback!
im rocking the whole rom, but i need to find a proper kernel that appreciates all this...lol
