How To Flash KF1 Gingerbread ROM On Samsung Captivate Easily


captivateWe covered a guide on how to install the leaked official KF1 Gingerbread firmware on the Samsung Captivate. While that was no pain to install, it did involve fiddling around with multiple files in ODIN. What this package does, is let you run ODIN and click on start. Credits to XDA-developers forum member CB650 Wolf. Optionally you can flash the Fugu Root as well if you wish to. Read on for how to install it on the Captivate.

The ROM originally at around 180MB, is at a massive 300+MB in this one click solution. There’s nothing more fancy to this solution and the ROM itself either but we have reason to believe that Netflix is working on this ROM. However, you can check out a few screenshots, courtesy of CB650 Wolf.

    Dude you are a godsend I tried to update my captivate to 2.3.4 by following steps on some guys blog who did not take descriptive writing. I ended up bricking my phone. I thought there was no hope for me. I want to get the new galaxy s2 but it does not come out until the 18th of September (rumor date) that is a long time without a phone.
    I searched the web for a whole day trying to find good steps on how to unbrick my captivate and I found this one.
    Steps are easy as pie. Just had to wait for the download to finish, then press start.

    Worked beautifully. The only problem I had was entering download mode. I rediscovered that the phone must be powered off first. When it is off, press Volume +/-, and plug in the USB cable to enter download mode.
