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
