    I got it rooted fine.
    But when I go to remove the Bloatware I get this.
    adb shell
    su
    Permission Denied

    Can I suggest an even easier way of editing and manipulating the settings.db file? I used a combination of Root Explorer, SQLite Editor and Dropbox, modified from . You zip and copy settings.db from your Captivate to Dropbox, then you can edit it in Firefox, zip it, copy it back, and manipulate it from there - or I found I could copy the file to another folder I created (modified market), edit the file in there with SQLite, save the file and then copy it back to the original folder following their directions. The one thing you have to be careful of is making sure you're mounted R/W instead of R/O in Root Explorer or you'll get errors, something like 'permission denied'.

    The Sideload Wonder Machine is nice, but I'm not always at my computer when I find something I want to try, this method made sideloading totally contained on the Captivate. Works a charm

    After doing the steps to "root", on reboot, I get an error that says there is no such file (update.zip) in /sdcard/. However, When looking in "my files" it is indeed there. Do I need to leave the phone plugged in and mounted during reboot? Or does that even matter? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hello everyone, I recently rooted my phone, saved update file, dropped in sd root then booted, root was successful, nothing went wrong. I then downloaded root explorer and changed the 3rd party app restriction to a 1 instead of a 0 to get rid of it, then i rebooted and my phone wont make it past the galaxy s screen anymore, now it wont work, i tried deleting cached data, deleting the user data, nothing worked, i am screwed now, only had this phone 2 months, please help i cant lose this phone. used this video to change the settings db for the apps

    super awesome!

    great post, thanks!

    I just wonder, what can I do with the update.zip file? Can I delete it or move it? should I put it in a safer place?

    and finally, does anyone know what will happen with the root access and all the stuff we did on this post, once I delete the personal data and reset the phone to defaults?

    cheers

    It appears that the app "titanium backup" allows you to delete, un-install, restore,freeze individual apps. Is this the same as doing all those command prompt actions except a whole lot easier for some of us. Is there a difference? Seems like it would save alot of headaches as there are many posts in this thread looking for certain app commands to delete them?

    I'm getting the same message. I have busybox installed, and I'm rooted, have the drivers and everything.

    Some help would be much appreciated.

    I was asking cause you may have done a temporary root....but thats not the case, why dont you try to reroot, something caused you to lose it. you cant get any other apps that need root to work right?

    Say Reinbeau; I've been stuck on the cmd prompt route...can't even get adb shell, says cmd not found, installed sdk a few itmes and Im in tools dir, but no cmds are working.
    So.
    On the phone I found the settings file, set R/W, edited from 0 to 1 but it won't save; are you saying I need to first make a copy and move it out to another dir, change it there and then save to or replace the original?
    And if you get the apk files from the develpers for the apps you want to load is it still neccessary to side load them?
    I really like the idea of doing this without being on my pc.

    Actually, all of the apps that require superuser access work just fine. Adblocker is working smooth as butter, drocap2 works almost perfectly, and I was able to back-up all my apps and user data with Titanium back-up.

    When it's all said and done though, I thought I would need to enable sideloading to restore all my data after I switched over to the Cognition ROM, but I just decided to take a leap of faith and flash that ROM anyways, and I was able to restore my stuff just fine.

    So, I guess I just won't worry about sideloading. Not worth the trouble it seems.

    I have attempted to access the 64bit USB driver via the URL (tiny.cc/80pq0) and receive an error each time. Any other options for acquiring the driver? Samsung perhaps? Seems I've seen a link to that somewhere in AndroidCentral.

    Never any solution given to those people that ran into "permission denied" when putting in the CP prompts.

    Phone is fully rooted.........busybox rocking.........path updated.........can't find the solution

    Question please help me sideload

    OK please don't get frustrated with me as I have read and read and tried the Swm. There was also this cmd method that I have tried. I've downloaded lots of things. I do have my phone rooted. Also busybox and a few other things but I'm just having a terrible time. I need a way without having to use my computer if possible. Also while I'm asking questions, what is the fastest web browser for the captivate? Would changing my rom help me do anything? I'm so lost. Please help me.

    you would need a custom rom as far as i know to sideload if you are not using a computer....whats wrong with the cmd way, that has never failed me

    Well maybe I'm just not doing it right. I down load one thing then it tells m I need another thing and my phone says it will not download anymore BC there isn't enough storage and idk why that would b. I thought I had everything so I tried and the Cmd kept telling me that it could not locate the file or some sort of msg like that.

    Try this method

    http://forum.androidcentral.com/gene...quick-adb.html

    put the files you want to sideload into the quick adb folder once you are all set up

    then read the section on adb install

    It seems they changed the names of the APK files with 2.2 on the captivate. Here are the ones I was able to remove using the OP's process:

    ***I HOLD NO RESPONSIBILITY OF WHAT YOU DO TO YOUR DEVICE, WHILE THERE IS LITTLE RISK OF BRICK, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE OTHERWISE***

    • mv /system/app/ATT-P11_PROD.apk /system/app/ATT-P11_PROD.tmp
    • mv /system/app/attmaps20-1112.apk /system/app/attmaps20-1112.tmp
    • mv /system/app/ATTNav-Samsung-Vega-1516.apk /system/app/ATTNav-Samsung-Vega-1516.tmp
    • mv /system/app/ATT_Radio_En_Full_2.4.1.75075.apk /system/app/ATT_Radio_En_Full_2.4.1.75075.tmp
    • mv /system/app/IM-Signed.apk /system/app/IM-Signed.tmp
    • mv /system/app/MobileBanking.apk /system/app/MobileBanking.tmp
    • mv /system/app/MobiTV.apk /system/app/MobiTV.tmp
    • mv /system/app/WHERE_Samsung_GT-I900_Vegas_EN_1.9.3_GM_06112010.apk /system/app/WHERE_Samsung_GT-I900_Vegas_EN_1.9.3_GM_06112010.tmp
    • mv /system/app/WriteandGo.apk /system/app/WriteandGo.tmp
    • mv /system/app/YPMobile-release-905.apk /system/app/YPMobile-release-905.tmp
    • mv /system/app/MobileVideo.apk /system/app/MobileVideo.tmp


    The above code will remove the ATT Navigation, ATT Radio, MobiTV, Mobile Banking, AT&T Maps, Where, Write and Go, GalaxySSupport, ATT IM, YP Mobile, and Mobile Video.

    Tried rooting... the install seems to work at first... but then it errors out as it tries to "Install from SDcard....

    it finds it
    opens it
    verifying update package....

    then errors that reads... "E:signature verification failed. Installation aborted".


    Any thoughts?

    I dismounted the SD card totally and tried again... but to the same effect.

    Thanks for your help


    BTW, my Captivate is upgraded to 2.2 frodo; if that makes a difference on the root file.

    The root file method doesn't work one Froyo (lol @ frodo), you have to use the root method in my signature.
