I hope we're next!!!
How Do I Update The Software On My Sprint SPH-d700 (Epic 4G) Phone To DI07?
We better be next. How much longer has the captivate been out than the epic? At&t this is stupid hurry up!
F*CK them. The longer they wait, the more sales they lose.
It's odd that the "change log" doesn't mention GPS
Didn't gizmodo say EPIC had a working GPS unlike other Galaxy S devices.
Samsung Epic:Anyone else having a problem with GPS...
OK, I stand corrected. I just remember when it first came out, gizmodo saying GPS was fine. But then again, my GPS was fine for a day as well when I first got my Cappy.
based on the timing, they must have had this fix in testing before the release date. There is nothing listed that corresponds with our phone that i saw.
Actually, it looks like this is a pretty boring update... unless you're looking forward to Media Hub.
Yeah, I don't know what this is all about, but their twitter support still says this month for Cappy GPS fix.
I had asked:
So I'm willing to give them their time to get this right.
Wow, you actually get a response? I seem to be getting ignored. Maybe because my tweets are along the lines of, "What the f@#k! Where's the damn update for my Captivate?!"
Yeah, they've always said September, so they still have a couple weeks left.
By the way, does anyone remember the rumor about Vibrant getting a GPS fix update on the 18th? I wonder if it will happen or not.
An update rolling out on a Saturday sounds odd to me.
Yeah, that changelog's nothing to shout about. At this point, I think I'd be happier waiting for the update if it came along w/Froyo...
Well, Froyo update was promised in September as well
i may be wrong but i dont think it was ever promised. i think samsung said they would be ready for the froyo update in september but it still has to go through att but i may be wrong
Froyo in Sept announcements were from Euro Samsung, which means i9000, iirc. We're going to be lucky if we get it before the end of the year, I think.
I think the information has been too ambiguous to assume that ALL Galaxy S phones are getting Froyo in September. I get the feeling that it's the i9000 only.
By the way, JH7 firmware has a setting for Update via KIES, which wasn't there before, which makes me believe it won't be OTA update, but who knows.
That would be awesome. If iPhone isn't restricted to OTA updates, then other phones shouldn't as well (at least through at&t).
Actually, I would prefer the OTA or better yet, the option for either one. I am using Macs and Linux, and can't get KIES to work at all in a virtual machine or emulator (WINE), and so OTA or unix-friendly software are my only options...
Per Samsung on facebook:
Please see the list below for details of some changes found in the DI07 update.
Optimized, HotSpot in 3G idle mode to help conserve battery power
Optimized, Applied Qualcomm patch for performance enhancement

Looking forward to that media hub. Didn't see anything about gps fix.
