Captivate Gingerbread
Edited by c0n on Jun 13, 2011 at 5:26:44 AM

Anyone have info on when Gingerbread is going to show up for the U.S.?  Or are we supposed to be excited about Samsung's "regional plan"?  It's as if the U.S. version of the Galaxy S is verboten.  I haven't found any reference to the SGS 1 on any of the android news sites/forums. Basically I'm wondering if it's going to be soon or if I should just root and put Serendipity or CM7 on.

It's not gonna happen because, if I'm not mistaken, Captivate has been End Of Life on AT&T. Wait for the annoucement of AT&T variant of SGS 2. That will be AT&T's answer to GingerBread on SGS.

Don't be so sure... It was a big seller and Google is trying to push carriers to keep things current where possible

Is that for the Captivate (AT&T) specifically or the Canadian version or the European Galaxy S line?
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

I doubt it will be gingerbread. Judging from the 2.2 update, if we get it it will not be until 2014 or 2015 at the earliest.

The link posted earlier to samfirmware is an official Samsung build. Samfirmware isn't affiliated with Samsung, but the releases they push out are official Samsung builds.   Goes without saying that this build is not necessarily the build that Samsung/ATT will be rolling out for the Captivate.
