There is a new ROM available for the Samsung Captivate, and many users say it fixes some of the bugs that have been a sore spot since launch. Before we talk about the bug fixes -- this is not pushing out from AT&T, and we haven't had a chance to try it yet, we've been a bit busy. You'll need to download the ROM from samsung-firmwares.com, which is an unofficial support site.
Now that that dirty business is behind us, here's what the folks who have had a chance to try it out are saying:
- 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
- USB tethering removed
- No HSUPA
- The "go into flight mode and turn on wifi" Market workaround removed
You can get all the info and download at the source link, and see a video of some quick GPS lock (while indoors!) after the break. [xda-developers]
