Re: Gingerbread for Captivate

First of all Rogers has to wait for Samsung, and for it to be right.  Second, no one in Canada is doing it better with the Captivate.

 

Maybe it would have been better to get the Samsung Nexus S,  I think you would have had to wait anyway.  It is better in some ways, but not as good in others.

 

Life is all about being patient, and making and living with the choces you make.

 

Gingerbread for Captivate is coming...

Re: Gingerbread for Captivate

Is that when Samsung is releasing it to the public, or to the carriers? If so, when can we expect the release from Rogers?

Rooting and loading ROMs is fairly easy, I did that with my Magic and extended it's life a fair bit. However with the captivate, the stock media player is leaps and bounds ahead of any ROM I have seen. So I will wait for stock GB unless there is another ROM that plays divx and uses hardware level decoding.

Re: Gingerbread for Captivate

I just want the OS for correct the mass storage issue of not being able to put more than 2.18 Gb on the internal SD card.  I was told that Gingerbread would correct for this.

Re: Gingerbread for Captivate

No more than 2.18 Gb on the internal SD card?  I have never heard about that.

 

Can you tell me more?
