Question about Samsung Captivate Cell Phone

1 Answer

I rooted my Samsung Captivate phone and replaced the stock ROM with Cognition 2.3v8. Now the phone turns off when not being actively used; whether battery is barely, half or fully charged. What can I do to fix this? Do I need to remove Cognition? If so, how?

    The phone that I have doesn't have any information for it on this website.

    My phone isn't listed on this website. The only phones I found for the Galaxy X series were European. Not to mention, if I need to change the ROM the main question I have is how.

    2. For Windows x86 and x64 systems make sure that the Samsung Drivers are installed. You can get them here.

    3. Extract the contents of GalaxyS_Vibrant_One-Click_Root.rar to a folder.

    4. Connect your phone to your PC via the USB cable and launch the file "T-Mobile Vibrant One-Click Root.exe" file.

    5. Click the "One-Click Root" button. This will launch a command shell follow the instructions in the CMD window.

    4. After the phone has rebooted into recovery select "apply" for I9000 and I9000M and choose "Reinstall Packages" for the US models using the volume keys and then press the home button for I9000 and I9000M and the power button on the right top side for US models to start the process.
    ================================================== ===================

    Done! You are rooted.

    ================================================== ===================

    Un-Rooting Instructions:
    To Un-Root follow the same instructions except click on the Un-root button. If you rooted using another process you can use this process to un-root as long as you didnt load a rom that created links to busybox. I would suggest to restore you phone back to stock ROM before even needing to unroot and if you are on stock un-root all you want otherwise what is the point of un-rooting.

    ================================================== ===================

    Getting Started with Android After Rooting:

    Flash Clockwork Custom Recovery On your phone:

    Follow this URL to find fill information on ROM Manager:

    Install ROM Manager from Market.
    Launch ROM Manager and click on Backup ROM and save you android O/S stock rooted making getting back to stock un-rooted much easier..

Hope you have bricked your android phone. Now must flash your phone with stock rom. You can do these by using ODIN. Just download ODIN for your phone, download stock rom odin flashable .zip packages for your phone, put your phone in download mode, connect your phone to PC via USB cable, run ODIN , load stock rom packages, flash it..

Can a ringtone be downloaded from one Samsung to another?

Are you using an android phone? If you need to copy ringtones of your phone which came with company stock rom, you must root your phone and then use root explorer to copy it to memory card or share it with anyone.
If you are using just basic phone and not an android smart phone, you cannot copy the system ringtones directly.

How do I get 2.2 on my Samsung captivate when I select to update my phone it says there are no updates available

There are many reason why you are unable to update your smartphone. Its either the update is not available on your phone or your network forbids it. But dont lose hope, you can update your phone via ROM from other regions. There are many sites that have tutorials on installing ROMS for your device. Try this one but be careful, this can brick your phone
