Well, I think I'm deep poo.
I'll save the introduction, being a new member, for later, and focus on an urgent problem that needs help.
Basically, being stuck on 2.1, I tried to find the easier way to upgrade my Captivate to 2.2. My Kies didn't work (even though I tried many solutions), so I had to find new ways to update my phone to Froyo. Take note that my Captivate is locked on Rogers (meaning I have a SIM card inside already). Also, my phone isn't rooted.
I stumbled upon this; "considering I can't post links, I'll give the directions for you, so you find the page I'm talking about; http://www.techpetals.com/how-to-install-froyo-on-captivate-android-2.2-froyo-for-samsung-captivate-leaked-2295
I completed all the steps and this is where the problem shows its ugly face.
problem comes from the fact that my phone is now like a stock, locked AT&T phone. What I mean by that is that the boot screen shows the AT&T logo. Everything is stock, such as in the early AT&T Captivate YouTube review. All my contacts are probably lost (I hope there's a way to retrieve them back). I can blame myself, as much as I can blame the author of the article who didn't mention that the solution only applied to US phones (likely). At least the menu shows that the firmware's 2.2.
I'm in limbo and I don't know what to do. There are so many things to fix here. I don't know what to do and I urgently
need your help. What should I do, people?
Any kind of help would be appreciated.
EDIT: One more thing. I connected the phone to the PC (mass storage mode) and things such as my album covers, music are still there. Considering these things are my phone's internal storage, is it possible to somehow retrieve the contacts that were saved on my internal storage? They don't show on the Contacts screen, but is there a directory inside the phone, using the mass storage mode, that could allow me to retrieve them?
