Nope, haven't heard anythig from Rogers.   probably smart of them not to announce until they know for sure.

Re: Gingerbread for Captivate

I did post the following link under "samsung" forum:

 

http://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/Samsung/thread-id/917

 

"British operater "three" and Samsung's "Finnish website" have claimed Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) would be available to its Samsung Galaxy S handsets in mid April!

Sources:

http://www.androidfools.com/2011/android-tablet/android-2-3-confirmed-for-samsung-galaxy-s/

 

Any news of that sort for Captivate users? OR it is gonna take ages (as it did with 2.2) for this update to reach marooned "peninsula" of North America?

Still nothing..... I think this will be the last Samsung and possibly the last Rogers phone I buy.

Stock Gingerbread for Captivate just was released today for AT&T phones.

Rogers will hopefully follow shortly.

Checking the forums there it looks like that version is compatible with Rogers Captivates.  Obviously it should only be done if you know what you're doing / are aware of the risks, but I think I'm going to try it tonight.

The firmware for the i897 will work but it will remove all noise suppression from your phone.

So do we know yet if 2.3 will be released for the Captivate?  A friend of mine has the Xperia and he got an update to 2.3
