  • This seems odd…I have a captivate that I purchased in Sept of 2010….In Feb of 2011 I upgraded to Froyo….I downloaded Kies Mini and followed your instructions. the Kies screen said that I had upgraded on 02/09/11 and my software is up to date…Now it’s time for the dumb question: Does that (Software is up to date) message mean that I cannot upgrade any further? Can I get gingerbread….do I have an “early build” handset that has limited upgrade capability?

    Thanx for your help
