Official Froyo Update Instructions for Samsung Captivate - It's Here!
It's here!!! Looks like its through Kies Mini. Unfortunately, I can't get Kies to recognize my Odined phone ( I used standalone, so one-click should be good), so these directions may or may not work. I'll keep this updated with any issues that arise. Good luck, and post your thoughts/experiences in the thread.
Seems like this is the leaked KB1 update, so if you have that already, I wouldn't waste your time. Also, it seems this will not wipe your phone, so that's good news.
UPDATING FOR WINDOWS (sorry Mac users, no love for you yet).
STEP 1: Download Kies from here. Just update a few minutes ago for Froyo!
STEP 2: Run the .exe file you downloaded. Choose language, agree to terms and let it do its thing.
This is where it gets iffy since I can't get it to work.
STEP 3: Under Setting>Applications>USB Settings and put it in Kies mode. Hit the home button.
STEP 4: Open Kies, and plug in your phone. Kies should recognize your phone, and you can hit the Update Phone button and start the update.
The update is supposedly taking rather long. DON'T FREAK OUT, AND DO NOT UNPLUG YOUR PHONE UNTIL IT FULLY BOOTS!!
When it reboots, go into Setting>About Phone and you should see the following:
baseband version I897UCKB1
Kernel version 220.127.116.11
Build number FROYO.UCKB1
Congratulations! You have Froyo! Now time to start complaining about Gingerbread lol.
Some people are complain about the update failing (sometimes multiple times). If this happens, keep trying.
Mixed results with GPS
Z4 root is not working, neither is the update.zip method (new recovery)
Updated hoses your widgets. Not a big deal, just don't be surprised.

[APP]SuperOneClick v1.7 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App) - xda-developers
Someone said it worked after they installed the Rogers Froyo update, so there's a good chance it'll work for this. Let me know if it works.

Just went through Froyo update with Mini Kies. My phone was rooted. I un-rooted before the update. Update was successful but when the phone rebooted it passed at&t logo and takes a while on galaxy s screen, it thens sits a black screen. Did a battery pull and reboot but no luck. Any suggestions.
Edit: I did not nor have i ever flash a custom ROM. Phone has been stock since i bought it. Only rooted and installed OCLF.

Thank you much. I just was able to do this at work (which is good because I have a Mac at home).
It worked well.
One note though....
I had to kill ADW first to get it to work. I kept getting a message that said there was an app running. Once I killed ADW, that problem went away.
Thank you for the tip ls 377. I'm glad to get this done so quickly.

Be patient. (Mine is sitting at that right now also. I'll wait it out.)
EDIT: and it just completed. You may need to wait a bit. Just be patient.
EDIT x2: And remember, the media scanner will probably tie up your phone in the beginning as well. It's probably best to just leave the phone to sit for 10 minutes after everything comes up.

If the phone goes past the AT&T logo, you can probably get it into download mode, from there use the one-click ODIN to restore the JF6 ROM.
Follow the instructions at XDA for JF6, then pick a ROM based on the BK1 release. It'll at least get your phone functional. Then I'd wait a while until other people work out how to get around offical update of a rooted / non standard ROM.
Hope this helps, consider "thanks" if it does
