I went to 4 shared.com and downloaded z4 root app to my sd card, then downloaded astro file manager. Opened astro, then tried to install z4, and a notice popped up on my phone and said "security notice your phone is set to block installation of apps not sourced in the android market" how do I turn that off so I can root and upgrade to 2.2? Appreciate any help please and thank you.

i have the same problem as far as the sideloading is concerned. i did root my captivate from the computer (which took forever) but i still cant side load anything because there is nowhere to check on allow unknown sources, if you find out what to do, i would love to know as well.
