    ClockworkMod Recovery for Captivate

    Koush has ported his awesome Clockwork Recovery mod to our captivates. This allows custom roms to be flashed, nandroid backups, and many other advanced recovery features.

    Original thread: [RECOVERY] ClockworkMod Recovery for Captivate (FINAL! SAFE!) - xda-developers

    Quote Originally Posted by Koush @ XDA View Post

    http://koush.tandtgaming.com//test/k...-stock.tar.md5

    This recovery is *very* safe to use. It does NOT flash your kernel; it is a completely uninvasive recovery method.

    How it works: The recovery is packaged as an update.zip that you run from STOCK recovery. The update.zip unpacks Clockwork Recovery onto the ramdisk and restarts recovery. When you reboot, it reverts back to the original, unmodified, stock recovery. So, you will need to keep the recovery on the root of your SD card as an update.zip, and apply the zip every time you want to start Clockwork.

    HOWEVER, if you use ROM Manager, all of the recovery installation and management instructions are done for you!

    Installation instructions:

    1. Download ROM Manager from the Market.
    2. Flash Recovery.
    3. Choose Captivate as your phone.
    4. Accept the Superuser prompt.
    5. Use ROM Manager to create a Backup.
    6. On the very FIRST boot of Clockwork, you may need to manually select "reinstall packages" if Clockwork does not start. You should only ever have to do this once. It will be automatic from then on.
    7. Watch the backup go!



    That's it! This is completely painless and safe! There is no need for Odin anymore to replace the recovery or flash updates!

    If you appreciate my work, please buy the Premium version of ROM Manager!

    Not at all. It replaces the stock samsung recovery with a heavily modified recovery by Koush.

    It allows the flashing of unsigned update.zip's, the creation of Nanddroid backups, Advanced wiping controls, and more!

I downloaded the compressed file from above and when I unpack it it is a file named zImage. Do i rename this zImage to update.zip or something else...Thanks for the help, I am new to these waters but I am enjoy my time so far.

    After you are rooted install rom manager from the market and use it to flash the recovery.
