ATT is the slowest in releasing updates , mainly because they want their footprint in everything. If you are bold enough to not wait on att, and want the update early, go to sites like xda and see what they've got going on, might fine an early release there if you're lucky.

ATT- By dragging your feet in providing software updates to your phones, you  are setting up the userbase to be fooled into downloading and installing bootleg software from the Internet.  The temptation to download one of these custom roms increases as the time since updates are made available grows.  

 

By doing this you are making the Apple product more powerful because they release updates in a timely and periodic manner.  You are lessening the brand of Android but taking so long.  Apple really loves you guys!  Just keep fueling their engine!  Someday, perhaps they will be telling you how to run your business!

i agree with you ...I have had the Infuse for some time now, and everyday I find my self searching the internet for news on the AT&T version of the update. I can go to one of the sources and down load the boot leg but i dont want to have the problems with it. My wife and daughter have the atrix, and they have the 2.3.5 and it makes me very upset...thats all i have to say

Thankfully, Verizon is coming to Alaska next year. As all other infuse customers, and Android fans, I've had enough! Ice Cream sandwich will be out next month and no gingerbread for the infuse yet! I guess it's fine now a days to puchase a smartphone and have it become obsolete 3 months later. Bottom line is, I'll be moving to Verizon, first in line, even if it means getting the iPhone! Great job AT&T!

I have been with AT&T since 2005 but I am planning on paying the early termination and going to verizon or I will be rooting my phone, one way or another I WILL get what I want. Enough is enough !!! They dont even have a good avatar for my captivate since its not 4g and I didnt see a Samsung label in the vendor section of the avatars go figure

Which problems?  If you want something fairly stable, go with one of the firmwares based on UXKG3 - that's not a bootleg, it's official Rogers Canadian firmware.  It is possible to get bone-stock UXKG3, but to be honest, alternatives like Infused v2.x provide a better experience (debloating, cleanup, and backporting of the camera libraries from the UCKI3 leak, which is about the only good thing from the UCKI3 leak.)

 

The only thing you'll lose by going to Rogers Gingerbread for the Infuse is HDMI at this point.

 

If you're on a Captivate - that is so close to the I9000 hardware-wise that it can run stock I9000 ROMs with very little modification, and the required modifications have been identified.  As a result there are some EXTREMELY stable ROMs for the Captivate, such as Serendipity VII (which also ran great on the Infuse.)

If I would install the I9000 ROMs wont AT&T regulations be violated? Will it affect my contract with AT&T? If no how do I get this update? Can you please post a link for the update?

Thanks

Officially, it voids your device warranty - so part of this depends on whether your device is still within its warranty period.

 

The actual risk is very little as long as you are EXTREMELY careful about flashing bootloaders - as long as you don't touch those, it's next to impossible to hardbrick a Samsung device.

 

I suggest reading the Captivate or Infuse sections of forum.xda-developers.com - do note, spend some time reading before posting!  Do your research on flashing methods and such.

 

For both Captivate and Infuse owners, Serendipity VII is a pretty good bet.  Infused is also good for Infuse owners.

Biggest problem for me is that most of the Gingerbread ROMs (for Infuse at least) don't have working Blutooth implementation.

The final answer seems to be that AT&T will *NOT* be releasing gingerbread for the Captivate.  They are refusing to confirm that they will be releasing it and since the captivate is now an obsolete phone the chances of being updated fade by the day.

 

AT&T knows that no matter what most people will remain customers, and that no matter what people will buy a new phone that AT&T in turn will refuse to keep up to date.

Where's your evidence for this?  Your claim is in direct conflict with the presence of multiple leaks (including UCKK4) and the presence of kernel source for UCKK4 on opensource.samsung.com - It's almost unheard of for leaks to have kernel source posted, so there's a good chance UCKK4 is going to go official soon.

Yep, goes against most wireless carriers business model.  Why would a business offer a software update, that might add new features, or fix problems, when after a year, they can hook you into a new phone, and tie you into an updated contract for another 2 years?

Where is my evidence that AT&T is refusing to confirm that they will be releasing it? Ask them. Ask them for a guarantee, in writing, signed by somebody with authority within the company.

If they release it, great. But that's a pretty big if. Some other guy tried to prove that AT&T was going to be releasing the update by posting a link to some AT&T page that contained a link to a Samsung page that doesn't exist. Whoop de freaking do.

Show me the update then I will believe. Until then, enjoy your vaporware.

Go to opensource.samsung.com, search for SGH-I897 - note that they are providing kernel source for UCKK4.  They have NEVER provided source for unofficial/unreleased builds, especially for phones that can just run I9000 firmwares with almost no modifications.

 

So that says UCKK4 is likely to go live fairly soon.

 

(I can't directly link, as their search system doesn't provide a new URL when search results are presented.)

 

I'm not sure when that source drop went live, but right now I think the longest Samsung has provided source in advance of an actual release was around 2-2.5 weeks (for the I777).

The LG Forums are littered with comments about AT&T's unwillingness to upgrade the phones to 2.3.  I have an LG Thrive, and had received assurances from Tech Support that a rollout was happening to distribute 2.3 - but later this was quickly disavowed by LG and AT&T.  

 

The general responses on www.lgforum.com and plus.google.com folks is that AT&T will not be releasing updates to Android phones.  What you get is what you paid for.  With counter arguments stating that AT&T and other carriers are getting snooty about people rooting their phones and using workarounds for tethering.  It is rumored that if you have rooted your phone AT&T will not update the software on it.

 

Sadly, AT&T still refuses to answer to its customer base, and seemingly still has its head firmly set on not  letting users use their data space as they see fit.

 

As for me, my last ties to AT&T expire in June.  Time for me to close my account then and go with something current, and has unlimited data plans.

Does AT&T even look at this forum? Gingerbread isn't new and is soon to be supplanted with another newer system. I wonder why AT&T cannot at least update customers on the status of product software updates. My Infuse is okay but when I had an Iphone all the updates were seamless without broken promises, endless waiting and bureaucratic run around.
