    I worked through the root and installed Clockworkmod and downloaded a couple of ROMS from your list, however, whenever I install a ROM and reboot, The ROM gets stuck on the first splash loading screen and never moves. I have tried this on three different ROMS and have had no luck.

    Please note that when a new kernel is flashed, and when you do a ROM you almost always have a kernel included, it will need to rebuild the dalvik cache on boot. This can take 5-10 minutes the first time only. If you gave it longer than that, I would boot back into Recovery mode and apply the same ROM again.

    When you go into Recovery mode to install from a zip file, is it green or blue?

    EDIT- Also, which ROMs are you trying? If you are trying to do the new Gingerbread ones, there are additional steps that may not be covered in this topic.

    I was trying to install three different mods from ls377's list. Trident, Platypus, and Javelin. I let it sit for about 25 minutes and it never went past the first splash screen. I have to reflash from odin and then root again and reinstall clockwork and then try again but each time I have the same result. Also, my build number is 1011. I can root just fine and am able to install non market apps but the stock ROM is terrible.

    Those 3 ONLY work with CM7 or MIUI. If you're trying other ROMS, use one of the non-CM kernels.

    Yes, as noted above, those kernels are not for Samsung ROMs, only for CM7 based stuff. The stuck at the screen thing is a clear kernel issue, and easy to fix with flashing the right one. No muss no fuss.

    What ROM are you running? 2.2 or 2.3?

    I figured that out about CM7. I am now running fire fly without a problem. Thanks for the write up!!

    I was experiencing the "unable to verify signature: failed" as well. I used SuperOneClick to not only root the device but it also had a one click option to enable the unknown sources option. Everything worked great.

    I think the file at the download site is corrupted, since we had the same issue with someone else. I'll upload another one and post it, and let you know when I do.

    EDIT: Try the link now, let me know if it works.

    Unzip the .zip file, and open the SuperOneClick program.

    Plug in your phone (with USB debugging enabled). Click "Root"

    Click Yes/OK on all the windows that pop up.

    If the test passes, you're now rooted![/INFO]
    Running stock Froyo (build FROYO.UCKB1, kernel 2.6.32.9) on Captivate.

    Tried to root using SuperOneClick (tried once each using each exploit). In each case, SuperOneClick reported success, but my applications that need root cannot achieve root access. When they try, unlike my experience using rooted Eclair, the there is no popup from the SU application requesting root permission. The request apparently just times out and the application is unable to secure root access.

    Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

    Thanks!

    Turns out the phone needs to be rebooted after rooting. SuperOneClick does not tell you this but I found the tip someplace and everything works now.

    Hey folks. First, thank you for all the tips/tricks you provide. I've successfully rooted my Captivate and enabled sideloading with instructions I've found here. Initially, that's all I wanted, but now I'm interested in CyanogenMod.
    I've searched and read numerous posts, and maybe I'm just confusing myself with all the information I've found, but I have a question you may be able to help with.
    If I want to flash CyanogenMod, do I HAVE to ODIN back to Eclair first? My Captivate came stock with Eclair, and was upgraded to Froyo via Keis. Also, the ODIN instructions have a reference to the build number in the back of the phone. My build number is 1101, and the reference only discusses build numbers starting with 10.
    I have also read a lot about overclocking and saving battery life. Can you provide insight on how I can accomplish this? My understanding is that some ROMs have this built in, but does CyanogenMod?
    Thank you in advance!

    You don't have to go back the Eclair to run CM. The only time you have to revert to stock for CM is if you installed anything with Gingerbread bootloaders. Otherwise, install clockworkmod, and go.

    The instructions are because some builds can't use Odin one-click without soft bricking. It usually applies to builds 1010 and above, but I'm not sure about anything in the 1100's.

    Overclocking won't save battery life, but undervolting will. It's not in stock CM, but you can install a custom kernel that will let you do it. You'll need the Voltage Control app to do it.

    I can't seem to get into CWMR from ROM Manager. I have the update.zip on the root of the sd card, along with the Google apps zip file. Not sure what I'm doing wrong here.
    Thank you for the speedy reply! You don't mess around, huh?!

    If you're on Froyo, the recovery is signed, so there's an extra step to get it to work. I have it linked in the rooting sticky. You can also just flash back to Eclair and it downgrades the recovery.

    Email notifications. Means I get bugged by replies to threads 24-7

    Everything seems to be working fine except my Swype keyboard. Trying to restore it with TBu now, but I'm not sure it's going to work. Heard of this issue before now?

    Got Swype back. After lots of searching, I found I'm not the only one that has had this problem. Here is the info in case anyone else needs it....
    You need the Swype Installer apk from here:
    Unzip the file and transfer the .apk file to your phone via usb cable.
    Use Root Explorer or similar to navigate to the SwypeInstaller.apk file and click to install.
    The rest is cake, just follow the on-screen instructions.
    The previous installers that were listed did not work, and I was getting a FC every time. With the installer linked above, I was able to get Swype working again on the first try.

    I've had my Captivate since it came out last year, and never updated to 2.2, what is the easiest way to do that so I can root it?

    Thank you
