Captivate update went fine, but I wish I had not done it.
I applied the update to my Captivate without any problems. However, my GPS, like many others are reporting, did not improve. Also, "Media Scanning", like many others have reported, did not perform any faster. But, the "PC Internet" button is no longer available when you connect with a USB cable. My phone is not rooted and does not have any third party apps. Is there a simple way for a complete newbe to reverse the update?

I used odin to flash to stock. You can use Titanium backup to backup your apps and all. You export your contacts to your external SD card. Put the data on the computer, just in case...use Odin to go back to stock. Install Titanium to reinstall apps and all. I never had the opportunity to really use Titanium.
I am on STOCK 2.1. Not 2.1 update 1. But I am rooted and OCLF and I am SO very happy. My previous setup was a bit laggy and permission problems.
Hope that helps a little.
To use odin you need to get to download screen which is VERY simple...
Turn off Captivate
Turn on Odin
Wait a minute
Push the up and down volume on phone(DONT press power)
Right after you press them plug in your USB into your phone(already connected to PC)
Hold volume controls till Downloading screen comes up, let Odin detect the phone...
Thats all there is to it, worked PERFECTLY for me. Just look for Odin with 2.1 update 1 with it...I have 2.1

I agree with this post ... I am really upset. I wonder if anyone can sue them over changing what the hardware that they purchased ... but of course they probably have a ton of "disclaimer" language to cover their $$$. The whole purpose of this update was to cover this removal ... I feel so STUPID!! Why did I do it. It is just one minute of stupidity ... now I have to figure out what to do ... let me know if you figure something out that works and is reliable.

What is this "PC Internet" button?
I've never noticed this, does it only show with USB debugging off maybe? I updated my phone, like most I see little difference if any in GPS, still lucky to get a signal. My wife's phone isn't updated - just wondering if I can see this function there. I'm ultimately going to root the phone when a Captivate specific ROM is there; what function did this do?
