Samsung Captivate Froyo Upgrade

Well it actually happened and I’m shocked, but not too impressed. Yes I put Froyo on my Captivate and it seems slower actually and not as responsive. The first thing was that it totally messed up my home screens, I had them all nice the way I wanted them and poof they’re all gone. Guess I’ll spend tonight fixing it. It did add Car and Desk modes which are kind of neat, but I didn’t see a way to configure them, then I didn’t really look too hard either.  I guess tomorrow I’ll head on over to XDA to root it again so I can enable side-loading so I can install what I want, when I want. Stupid AT&T locking phones annoys me about as much as Samsung and their late updates.  Anyway, here’s the info:
