    In the market, there is an app called "One Click Lag Fix. Easiest war to root. Designed specifically fire Galaxy S phones. No computer required.

    Sent from my Samsung Vibrant Overclocked to 1.6GHz. Please excuse my Swype.

    Everything on my captivate workes great, camera included, only thing, had to put in txt messager # as it was blank, took about 45 secs after googling for messenger # changed GPS web link searcher, took awhile to finally lock but now locks faster than before, also if you know anything about android, (I'm a newbie) SGS (Samsung Galaxy S) Toolbox, Tools, and Unlock Tool works great too

    I have the homebrew froyo on my Captivate and am trying all sorts of root methods. Each attempt gives me the "signature verification failed. Installation aborted" message. Is there another way to go root after the froyo workaround? obtw the baseband is I897UCJI6 kernel version:2.6.32.9 Build number: FROYO.UCJI6. Please advise!

    JI6 is the ODIN Stock 2.2. Have you tried the One Click Root?

    Via USB I cannot get the Update.zip over to my Captivate I897 UCJH7, 2.1 eclair. Using my desktop USB with Linux Ubuntu or an XP mini laptop, USB transfer to the phone seems impossible. But, it does seem to transfer via BlueTooth with the XP mini laptop (Acer Aspire).

    Using BT transfer and activating "recovery" I am still left without a root button.

    I am missing something here but cannot see it?! What do you suggest? This is very much like the previous post #56.

    This is from the Recovery screen on the phone:

    Installing Multi-CSC

    Install from sdcard...
    finding update packages...
    opening update package...

    E: can't open /sdcard/update.zip

    (no such file or directory)

    Installation aborted

    Usually when transferring via BT, the file isn't at the root of your SD, but rather in a folder somewhere. update.zip has to be placed at the root or top of the file system on your SD. (plus it's implied that that's the root of the internal SD, not the external)

    Also, to enable USB file transfers, on your Captivate go to Settings --> Applications --> Development --> and check USB Debugging. Now when you plug your phone into a computer, unlock it and drag the notification bar down then select USB file transfer.

    Dorian,

    Nicely said. That does it because my Captivate is now "Rooted". I used BlueTooth for the file transfer but I expect USB would also have done it correctly too. Others

    should remember to type only "update" when renaming the downloaded (...dropbox...) file.

    Again, thanks Dorian....................... you make the impossible, possible.
