They need to hurry up with the T-Mobile Vibrant :mad:

Yeah you won't get updates via custom roms.

The update didn't do anything. GPS still sucks.

Froyo is now available for the Captivate. Leaked official build release. GPS is flawless. Locked ten sats within a couple seconds and accuracy appears to be within a few feet. I'll walk around and do a MyTracks later but all reports are that GPS is perfect now.

Thought of betterdan immediately (no homo) the minute I saw the thread on XDA last night.

I can't recall if there are other Captivate users here but if there are, the Froyo release doesn't (yet) support one-click root, voodoo lagfix, etc. Sideloading wonder machine works, root can be obtained but is a bit of a PITA. No HSUPA yet. ATT and Samsung bloatware in full effect. I would suppose there will be a Cognition rom/voodoo support within a day or two judging by the rate at which devs are moving on this...insane how fast these guys are working.

You didn't think of me in a homo way? :(
:rofl

As for the T Mobile update... no where to be seen, not froyo, not even the GPS fix all the other carriers got for their version of the Galaxy phones. This sucks almost as much as Rosie Odonnel on a 10 course dinner.

Honestly, the "GPS fix" really wasn't that at all from my own experience with it. I still had much better GPS performance with an older modem.bin from a stock SGS rom than I did with the updated version.

I dunno how good T-mobile is at pushing out updates but that the ATT version has been leaked via (I *think*) Samsung themselves, it seems safe to assume that your version should be in the wild shortly.

This is the first time I've had T Mobile so I don't know about their updating but from what I've read and seen it sucks ass.
I saw on the T Mobile forum that they will supposedly put out some info on the update next week... Sucks that it was the first Galaxy S phone in the US and it's the last to get the update.

Captivate launched before the Vibrant. Captivate launched in July, Vibrant in August.

No. Vibrant became available for sale before then. Vibrant was actually out on the market first. Trust me, I bought the Vibrant at a T-Mobile store the day it became available on July 15th.
Now the official "launch" came later but by then many people already had the Vibrant.
