Here's one annoyance - in the gallery if you click on a picture and click "share" the list of share options pops up and out horizontally (whereas it was vertically on Froyo). The result being that half it is off screen which means its unuseable. rotating the phone on it's side helps little but the list is still somewhat cutoff.
The share functionality used to work so flawless and now it kind of blows.
I've not done this myself but you could try:
The poster who wrote that generally really knows his stuff with this phone. (He's talking about the international version so not sure if its valid for captivate also)
I'm not sure if I will root this time around - LauncherPro gives me most of the UI customiztion options that I would want anyways.
GB is running fine except one bbbig disapointment: front facing camera. I though the indication was that with gb, i would be able to use skye video like on iphone.
Is ff camera supposed to work at all?
I mean it seems Captivate does have an ff camera. Does it?
Hi everyone. I've tried through Kies Mini but it's telling me I'm on the latest firmware version. I've upgraded to 2.2 through Kies and didn't have a problem.
I'm on root btw although I don't think that matters. The phone is an AT&T Captivate unlocked running Froyo.
Any reasons why it's not giving me the update?
No that captivate does NOT have a front facing camera. My understanding is that all the electronics are there and a FF camera could just plug in... like a hardware upgrade of some kind....
But there is no camera there...
I tried the regular Samsung Kies but it won't recognize my phone. When I googled that topic I read stories about people having to format the internal SD card for it to finally read the phone! So i'll eliminate that option. I'd rather just get a rom at this point and follow a step-by-step guide instead.
Do I need to un-root before updating? Also, any other hints? I had a really difficult time on the last update. For example, I didn't realize the external sd card had to be removed. Any tricks like that to this update? Thanks!
