    It's official, after MONTHS of waiting, It's finally here!!!!! I'm running the official release of Froyo on my Cap right now. I downloaded via Kies Mini, running Vista. Total process takes about 20 minutes. Get it NOW!!!!! :D

    I've verified that it actually works. Here are a couple of things I've noticed right off the bat:

    - Regarding Mobile AP/USB Tethering: "A Tethering/Mobile Hotspot plan is required to use the service."

    New apps:
    - Car Home
    - Desk Home (not sure if this was in the leak or not): Basically is a clock that gives you access to alarm, daily briefing, music, voice search, and gallery.
    - Galaxy S Support (basically a bookmark)
    - Media Hub actually works

    I'm sure there are a ton of different changes, but that's all I've noticed so far.

    I am getting an error with Kies Mini - it starts the download but gets and error at 70% - I am running Win7 64bit (and that may be the issue)

    Haha, ok. Thanks.

    What were the known issues with the leak? Let's see if we can see if they were fixed. Otherwise, I'm going back to the leak so I don't have to deal with this Mobile AP being locked down.

    Locks faster, that's for sure! Still has the same accuracy for me as before, but mine was never as bad as I've heard about others.

    Edit: just opened maps and got an instant lock of 5 meters in my house. It's never been that good before.

    Were you running stock 2.1-update1, or a custom rom or the leak?

    I am not even getting that lukewarm feeling!!! Tried installing Kies Mini from the Samsung Capivate support. I am installing on WinXP 32 bit, and gets partially into "Installing Windows Media Format 11" and then crashes.

    Any Ideas???

    Thank you all
    Chris

    Not sure, but did you get the installation files from the official Samsung site?

    Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> USB Settings -> Samsung Kies.

    Also, make sure if you're running LauncherPro or another home replacement that you exit it and have TouchWiz launcher running.

    I'm not sure. AFAIK I didn't have any issues with the leak, I just can't root it. I've tried z4root and Super one-click and neither worked.

    Mobile AP was supposedly working for me, but just shut off because I don't have a tethering plan.

    Dumb question, but since you have gone through it before I do I'd like an answer. They say to backup all the files etc, and I was wondering did the update delete anything? I really don't feel like rooting my phone, or buying a program for a 1 time use. I don't have anything of real importance on my phone (text, photos, music) other than my contacts. I only have a couple of free apps on my phone that I could redownload if need be. So does the update delete any of these?

    Did z4root force close for you? That's what's happening for me...

    z4 didn't even finish, it just stayed in the boot loop. I deleted it and haven't tried it again.

    I meant to do those directions on your phone, not on Kies.

    Are there any apps that may stop working in 2.2 that we should be aware of?
