    Oooooo. Keyboard's been rearranged. Jerry and I are doing benchmarks. Have been hearing weird things about the JIT and Samsung.

    The JIT is heavily optimized for Snapdragon processors in particular and doesn't provide nearly as much of a performance boost (in linpack anyways) for Motorola phones (TI OMAP processors), Galaxy S phones (Samsung Hummingbird processors), and older phones with older Qualcomm processors.

    Crashes and such.

    We've done some benchmarks. On par, about double the numbers of the 2.1 Captivate.

    Seems it does. Everyone over at XDA has said the GPS works awesome with this so far.

    so are the crashes in the normal os, or in certain things in particular? i'm not sure i know what JIT is. you think this is safe to go ahead and use?

    I think he heard things about froyo on other Galaxy S phones. No crashing or problems with this leak.

    I won't dare update now, but I am really wanting to hear about how much it improves things. This must mean the official release is coming sometime soon no?

    I'm looking for someone to reply and post a comprehensive update on what is working and what is fixed. Specifically I'd like to know about the Exchange account and if there are any bugs w/ this ROM (I use Exchange a lot), as well as any other major bugs that will drive me nuts.

    Phil? You seem to be the authority, any chance you can elaborate a bit?

    Well, I figured I'd give it a shot. I was an all-stock, non-rooted user prior to the 2.2 flash.

    It was gravy. Seriously, the process was about 10 minutes. The GPS seems to actually WORK now, and the phone runs far better overall. Tested most basic functionality, and everything works just fine. Quadrant score of 992 now, while it was 740 before.

    is copy/paste for the email clients working now in this leaked version? Interested in going back to the Captivate due to flexibility over blackberry and copy/paste is a must have for what I do.

    I've been waiting forever for this!
    I'm not super-advanced, but the install was extremely easy. The only downside I had to deal with so far is that literally ALL the information saved on my phone was erased when I installed the update. Not sure why.
    Froyo shows my benchmark scores just a shade under 1000, which is a pretty sizable upgrade from the mid-600's to low-700's I was getting.
    An auto-rotate button has been added to the pulldown menu at the top of the screen, which is pretty slick. I still don't like TouchWiz (it's the colors in the app drawer that really kill me), so I'm continuing to use LauncherPro. Touchwiz did add one cool thing that I noticed before I re-installed LauncherPro, and that's the HTC style Preview that allows you to view all of your homescreens at once. It's also easier to add homescreens now than before.
    I'm interested in seeing how the battery life holds up now. Friends of mine have been running Froyo on Droid 1, Droid X and Droid Incredible, for weeks now, and they seem to notice a slight dropoff in battery life. Also, I'm not sure how this will affect my device when the "official" update comes out, but I see no real reason to update again now.
    Good luck with the updates people!

    I don't know exactly what you are looking for, but under the stock email app it seems to work fine. I think it always did.

    To test, I selected and copied text from one email response, and pasted into a new message. Seemed to work fine.

    Someone else mentioned battery life. I was getting a consistent full day out of mine, with the Podkast app basically streaming audio all day, and me taking calls constantly. It would get plugged in right before I crashed, since it's also my alarm clock.

    I do have a car charger, but don't typically use it.
