    Question Backup for my captivate before rooting or flashing??

    I just got my Captivate last week. It's already giving me problems by shutting off when locked, but that doesn't discourage me. I want to flash it to Froyo 2.2, but I want to make sure I have a complete backup; just in case I want to take it back.

    Does anybody have a suggestion of what back up system I should use?? I want a complete system setting backup, something like an image. Please help!!

    Note: I am still within my first 30 days.

    Just do a nandroid backup which gets pretty much everything on the phone.

    You could root it and then back up everything. But I found that even though I did it I could not use any of the apps or anything backed up since there is a difference between 2.1 and 2.2
    Once I did the froyo and refound all my apps in the market then did the cog. 5.5 I was able to use all the backups since they were already for 2.2 froyo
