    You'd need different files for the Rogers Captivate. You could use these if you're just flashing back to flash another ROM, but if you want to go to stock, you need Rogers specific.

    FAQ

    Q: Why do I need this?

    A: You can use this to completely remove evidence of rooting from your phone if you want to send it in for repair, or sell it. You can also use this is your phone has been infected by app-borne virus (I believe I just coined that term ).

    Q: Will this wipe my phone of all data?

    A: Yes, this will wipe your phone completely and rewrite the partitions to a stock (the way you bought it) condition.

    Q: Will this wipe my SD card?

    A: NO, this will not wipe any data on your SD card, only system partitions of the phone itself.

    Q: Does this void my warranty?

    A: No, in fact if you had a software change that would have have voided your warranty before this will bring you to a state that they will have never known an alteration was made

    Q: I am currently running the latest software update, will this return me to this state?

    A: No, this will bring you back to Eclair 2.1.1 Firmware build JF6. BUT you will then be able to do an official Kies update to the latest released build

    Q: Will i lose any apps or data during this process?

    A: You absolutely will, this is a full wipe of your system. But please refer to Post #2 where we will give you steps to take to back up your apps and data. Post #5 after you are done with the wipe and restore will give you the steps to restore the apps and data.

    Q: What is Odin?

    A: A Flashing program to download Kernels, firmware to Samsung mobile phones. Also used in recovering failed flashes, bricked phones or doing full system wipes and restores.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Preparations

    1. Download and Install Samsung Drivers
    Drivers

    2. Go to Settings > Applications > Developement > Enable Debugging, then connect your phone to your PC, allow 2-3 minutes to configure drivers
    When I go to install the Samsung drivers on my PC it says "SAMSUNG Android USB Modem Software was not installed successfully (16) There is a driver installed for the device, please uninstall it first." Does this mean I already have the drivers that I need to initiate the restore or do I need to delete what I have and use the extract files from the Megaupload website?

    Skip that step and see if you can connect it to your computer (put it is mass storage mode, if you can transfer files, then they should be installed).

    Send namecard via
    Step 1. From the Home screen, touch contacts

    Apps and Data
    There are many apps available on the market. But i will suggest My Backup Pro if you purchase you can use this without root. It can be found in the Android Market
    1) What is a "namecard"?

    2) Thank you for suggesting MyBackup Pro [don't use "My Backup Pro" -- it produces unreadable adware on the Android] The difference is the space between My and Backup in the adware version.
    I tried the REAL MyBackup Pro, the full price version right off, and it was slick and easy to use. I noted though that some of the data did not get backed up; to the program's credit, it listed the unsaved data along with the saved data, and distinguished between them.

    Thanks again. I've set recurring backups, and I now feel more secure with the upgrade to Froyo, and with the threatened flash reset. News: the Samsung people did NOT call this morning at 11:00 am, as promised.

    I think it's an individual contact file. Don't quote me on that, I borrowed that part of the guide from someone else.

    Oy vey. Dumb knock-offs. I'll update that.

    My Phone's build number is 1008.
    I was trying to flash back to 2.1 with Odin3 one click downloader.
    I entered download mode fine, the phone was seen and I got 0:[COM4] in yellow for ID:COM.

    When i Clicked start, last message I got was <ID:0/004>File Analysis..
    After a short time, the phone lost power, battery fell out.

    Now when I turn the phone on, I get the phone-!-computer symbols.
    Go back into Download mode and then connect to ODIN again but it gets stuck at the <ID:0/004>File Analysis..

    I left it like that all night thinking ti would take a while. 10 hrs later and it's still sitting there.


    Can anyone help me please?
    I'd really appreciate it.
    Thank you.

    The process never takes more than 5 minutes.

    Make sure you are using a rear USB port. Reboot your PC and try again; I have seen where Windows USB gets into a "not working properly" state.

    So long as you can get into download mode, you should be recoverable.

    Odin has been on "Do not turn off target" well over 30 min. Do I just unplug my usb and then re-attach without turning off the phone. Or do I need to redo the whole process over again (post#7). My build is 1010. I previous comments about someone running into the same problem but was still unsure on which way to go.

    If Odin hasn't shown anything past "Do not turn off target", then yeah, just unplug it.

    I've never actually seen that. It would probably scare the crap out of me lol.

    Make sure you close and restarting Odin before trying it again. A reboot might be a good idea too.

    I have gotten that numerous times. It is either from the cord coming loose during the flash, or because it locked up and you had no choice to pull it. But from that exact situation is where you can get one of the couple tougher problems to solve.

    Were you coming from a kernel that had voodoo enabled? I rarely use ODIN, except when I have to anymore, but I think I usually had trouble when I forgot to disable Voodoo before flashing back.

    EDIT- Also, best bet is to reboot your computer when this happens as well, as the USB system can go wonky when using Odin.

    Ok, I just rooted using SuperOneClick, I was on 2.2 froyo. root worked fine, I was trying to install clockwork mod, so i used the odin tool, it worked and i was back to 2.1, now i'm updating again to 2.2. I'm kinda confused and think i know what it going on but wanted to make sure. so in order to use clockworkmod recovery i have to be on 2.1? thats the whole reason for the downgrade right? i dont want to go back to 2.2 because then i will lose clockwork, is this right? just let the rom I choose upgrade me to froyo or gingerbread?

    You can use this method to install CWM on Froyo.

    You usually don't need to, just make sure to wipe data and cache after installing and you should be fine.

    I got the same thing when I did it. Thought I was the only one lol.

    You can flash the KB1 file in Odin. Just do it without the .pit file.

    Use the same method as you used to flash to stock, except replace the JH2 .tar file with the file I linked to
    (I think you have to take the .md5 off the file name. It should just end in .tar). Don't use the .pit file.
