Official Rogers Update: Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 OS Upgrade

@Cormer

 

Hi everyone,

 

The Android 2.2 OS update for the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate is now available for download through Samsung’s website at:  http://www.samsung.com/androidupgrade. Be sure to select the one marked “Samsung S Captivate” from the list.

 

Note that anyone looking to upgrade must have Kies 1.5 installed in order to run the upgrade.

 

Contacts should be backed up as part of the upgrade, but we recommend backing up and restoring your own data as the update can erase personal data.

Re: Official Rogers Update: Samsung Galaxy S Android 2.2 OS Upgrade

I have done everything according to the link you have provided but Kies will not connect to my phone. Upon checking Google it is common knowledge that Kies is nothing but a buggy piece of junk. The latest drivers have been updated and Touchwiz is the default launcher. What's happening is that Kies is just in limbo saying connecting to device but nothing happens. Your thoughts on this?

How does Rogers recommend backing up one's own data?  Is there a recommended app or method we should use?  Is this update approved for use on the Rogers version of the Captivate?


Thanks!

I second this question.

 

I updated to Froyo from Kies last week. Is there any difference between this official update and the "unofficial" one last week?
