Samsung Captivate Android 2.2 FroYo Update To Roll Out From Tomorrow
By on February 23rd, 2011

A couple of days ago, Samsung and Sprint started rolling out the Android 2.2 Froyo update for the Samsung Epic 4G. Today, AT&T has announced that they will be rolling out the Android 2.2 update for the Samsung Captivate handset from tomorrow!

However, the update won’t be an OTA (Over-The-Air) one. Users need to use their Windows based PC or a Mac to update their Captivate to FroYo.

As stated above by AT&T, the download link to Android 2.2 FroYo for the Captivate will be posted on their Facebook page tomorrow. Hopefully, the update will be a trouble free one and won’t end up bricking the handsets like the WP7 update did to Samsung phones. Including the Captivate, 3 out of 5 Galaxy S variants will taste Android 2.2 FroYo this year.

Hopefully, Samsung and Verizon will release the Android 2.2 update for the Fascinate by the end of this month or early next month.

    I just installed the update last night works like a chram. No bricking. Operating system seems to respond a bit quicker and now has the included task manager. Overall good experience too bad it took so long to happen. But hey iPhones dont run flash.

    When will there be an OTA Froyo update available for the Samsung Captivate? My friend was able to update his Droid 2 from Verizon to Froyo OTA when he got it back in DECEMBER. This is ridiculous.
