    Hi folks,

    I just got my Captivate today about 4 hours ago. :)

    Here is an info about my Samsung Captivate

    Under "About Phone"

    MODEL NUMBER
    SAMSUNG-SGH-I897

    FIRMWARE VERSION
    2.1 -update1

    BASEBAND VERSION
    I897UCJH7

    KERNEL VERSION
    2.6.29
    jetaek.lee@sep- 11#2

    BUILD NUMBER
    ECLAIR.UCJH7

    Can this phone be rooted? Are there HOWTOs I can follow for this type of phone? I would like to gain root access so I can tether, ssh, etc. Also, before I root it, I would like to back-up the current configuration to make sure I can revert it in case I brick it. Is there a HOWTO for this as well?

    Thanks.

    Neil

    Sorry, I don't want to make this site seem unwelcoming or anything, but you are the first Captivate user I have seen here, you are probably better off on xda-developers.com, they have their own section dedicated to Captivate developing. Good luck
