    Yeah I'm waiting to. Finally, and to thank Amazon for initiating the push towards this.

    Just tried now and it worked. I had an update to the amazon app store itself pending (sideloaded it originally and was too lazy to sideload the update). Went through just now. I don't have the option to allow or not, it just appears to work.

    I originally sideloaded the Amazon Appstore but later deleted it. I just installed it with no problems on my Captivate so I guess I got the update.

    Yay! Just got the update. I saw my phone wakeup on the coffee table so I decided to give it a go. The Amazon App store installed without a hitch.

    Hmm.....mine didn't have the option, that I see, to allow to install non-market apps in Settings, but I just tried to install an apk file and it seems like its working.

    I'm actually a little surprised at the number of Captivates not already rooted and enabled for non market apps judging by the responses on these forums

    I've tried this an recevied an error. I'm wondering if I unroot I can get the updated, and then root again when it's done?

    Did you root with super one click? I think you're supposed to enable non market with rage against the cage mode

    Who knows when AT&T will come through. Rageagainstthecage superoneclick works for allowing your phone to download non market apps. After rooting, open up the superoneclick again and select the 'allow non-market apps' with your phone still connected to the computer and usb debugging still activated. You may need to 'allow' it on your phone, if that is the case, it will pop up on your phone automatically, mine only gives me 8 seconds and if I don't select 'allow' it 'fails'. I was able to load all of my backups from mybackupPro from my sd card after allowing non market apps.

    Yes, I used One Click to root. I don't know what "rage against the cage" is.

    Once your phone is updated to allow non-market aps, go to this link: Amazon.com: Appstore for Android. In the upper right hand corner is a place to enter your phone number or e-mail and you will be sent a link to it.
    RavenFox and BigCiX like this.

    See the post 2 above yours. It's on the right side of the app (super one click)..

    I'm not seeing anything in the SuperOneClick ap that says "rageagainstthecage". I just re-downloaded it, so I'm pretty sure I have the current version (1.9.1).

    My stock Froyo is now successfully sideloading. No new check box, but it works.

    No owrries I still havent got the update on my stock captivate either :).....I think they are rolling it out very very slowly...

    so just to make sure i have this right.. all those Captivates that have received the update... do NOT have the check box that allows installation from "unknown sources" ... it just works and allows you to install non-market apps..?! I'm rooted and have been able to sideload apk's via Super One-Click rooting for awhile... so i can't tell if I've been "pushed" this update or NOT..?! hmmm...

    That is correct, the only way to know for sure if if you have a stock device. For the Captivate there is no "Unknown Sources" selection in the menu.

    Just tried installing it and it worked. For 5 days while i was out of town I kept checking for a software update. Now i feel like an idiot but am glad it finally works

    I spoke with Amazon and they are in the process of completing it for AT&T. They are estimating about one more week.
