So i recently snatched up a Captivate and decided i wanted to root it! Well i did that but couldn't get the roms to install (ends up my problem was i'm still on 2.2) So i went and snatched Darkky's rom to attempt to install this....

[Kernel][KH3] Stock with Clockwork Recovery - xda-developers

Well i flashed that kernel and next thing you know my phone started back up but had a super colorful static screen.....so i decide to put the phone in download mode and restore it using Odin...well here's the problem.....Odin3 v1.00 won't acknowledge my phone...tried Odin3 v1.3 and it does the same....so what should i do guys? I tried reading up as much as possible before posting.....what should be my next step just to get the phone back to working? lol Thanks in advance!

Do you have the drivers installed? If you already do, try a different computer.

No, if you can get to DL mode, that is all you need.

If you can get to DL mode, you do not need a un-brick. Just pick your build, JI6, KB1, or KF1 and run the one-click for those. Run the real deal, none of the non-bootloader stuff.

EDIt- The reason you need to full one-click, is since you are messed up, there is no telling which part is messed up.
