This ROM works great. It is insanely fast compared to my rooted 2.1 with OCLF. My phone is a joy to use. My GPS issues are hardware based but it improved lock a little for me. Also it fixed the WiFi net mask issue that 2.1 had.
Check out these HOW TO videos that show you everything you need to know about loading up a new ROM, but most importantly backing up all that you have currently before you load up a new ROM:
EDIT: Unfortunately, today I can no longer connect to my work place's WiFi so it seems the net mask issue has cropped up again somehow. Also my GPS WILL NOT LOCK at all now. It can see up to 9 sats with good signal strength, but won't lock. This SUX!
EDIT 2: My GPS issues seem to have been hardware related. I switched the phone out at AT&T's Service Center tonight and got one with better GPS performance. As for the WiFi issue at my job, apparently current Android versions DO NOT PROMPT for network credentials properly on some domain networks.
The Cognition 2.38B is working as it should. My probs were poor hardware and my misinformation. I'll flash cognition to this new(er) phone tonight and see how it works then.

Cognition (Froyo) v2.3b8 and Jawbone Voice Dial
Anyone have issues with using a jawbone icon headset and the voice dial capabilities on the Captivate with Froyo? It should be possible with 2.2 according to Jawbone but I tried their reset recommendations and haven't had any luck.
I know there are issues/work arounds with other phones but I haven't seen anything specific to the Captivate and Cognition which is why I am asking.
Thanks in advance.

i have installed this twice on my girlfriends phone, works great for a couple hours then it gets to a point where it goes into a crazy android phone force close loop,,,,,this is after using odin to one click stock rom and using master clear both times so it cant be something im doing before install,, and the fact it went through all the motions leads me away from bad download and since i flashed it twice with same results so i dont know what to think , im going to try an older version of cog.

Process com.android.phone has stopped unexpectedly
I just flashed the newest cognition rom and this is the error I keep getting. Anyone have ideas on how to fix.
Process com.android.phone has stopped unexpectedly
It started to do this after I ran Titanium Back up. I have tried the fix permissions option in the Rom Manager and have rebooted. Didn't fix my problem.

Yes I had exact same problem and was told that when I used Titanium Backup to restore that I may have used the "Restore apps with SYSTEM data" instead of "Restore apps with data"......so I started over and the same thing happened while being sure I only Restored apps with data.....so i started over and just restored the missing apps. No data, no System data, and so far no problems!! I haven't had the phone very long anyway so it was no big loss. I learned also from the Cognition chat room that there may have been issues with the 2.1 and 2.2 data that were not getting along after using Titanium Backup?? hope that helps?

I think what happened is when I copied everything to my back it up I copied EVERYTHING. When I put it back on the phone I copied EVERYTHING out of my backup folder and some of the files were already on the phone. When asked I told it to replace what was already on the phone with what was in my back up folder. I think this caused the problem because I reflashed and everything in fine except all my contacts are gone so I need to find them. Any where they are stored in my back up file?

So what is the safe and proper way to restore your apps with T.B. after installing cognition? I just got mine installed and loving it so far. I do have some apps I would love to renstall with tb rather than reload them from the market. One in particular is "shooter ballistics", as i have/had alot of data stored in that app. thanks...

You can typically restore USER apps + data. Do not restore anything system related and definitely not system data. You can sometimes get away with it depending on what you are flashing from, and what you are flashing to... but it is bad practice in general, for reasons you are now painfully aware of.
There is a batch restore option for user apps + data. That is usually safe, especially for games and whatnot.

Recommended instructions are to flash to stock JF6 before going to a new ROM, using designgears' one click ODIN. These are given at the Cognition page, at XDA.
For most people, skipping this step has no impact, there are a few though, that report issues. I always go to JF6 first.
Hope this helps, consider clickin' thanks- it makes me smile.
