    What type of issues are you having? I'm having non stop tethering errors. No idea why. Every time I wake the phone up, I get the error messages.

    Factory reset or root and uninstall/ freeze with titanium backup. That will solve the tether manager error.

    Got the same teathering pop ups....nothing seemed to stop them.

    I rooted and installed Titanium and deleted the teathering app.

    That resoloved the problem but now I have no wifi application.

    I hit the wifi button and it goes on for a few seconds....then back to blank.

    I am tried a factory reboot and still no wifi. I am now doing a master clear and hope my phone is not bricked.

    Had a great phone until the Gingerbread upgrade.

    I'd attempted moving the wifi.conf and the bcm_supp.conf. I haven't gotten a result yet.
    I have not replaced wifi.conf with the one supplied on this thread. Mainly because I can't seem to figure out how to use either the terminal emulator, windows, or astro to put it in the system files. (Namely, I can't navigate the filesystem between the storage and the system files)

    But anyway, is it likely that replacing the wifi.conf will work? I have no errors or anything blatantly demonstrating that it's that specific file.

    I have a Captivate from about a year ago, 2.1 to 2.2 to now 2.3, rooted with Odin.

    Same exact thing here.
    2.1 ->2.2 Froyo-> Rooted->2.3 Gingerbread ->Root with Odin.
    I was having problems with Titanium backup saying that my su was out of date, but I fixed that with busy box.

    Now my Wifi won't turn on. The same exact thing happens.

    I've looked for .conf files but I can't seem to find anything.


    Any ideas how to get my wifi back would be appreciated.

    Worked on my phone for 12 plus hours trying EVERYTHING, from factory resets, uploading thru kies mini and when getting to Gingerbread, always had trouble.

    There are several Gingerbread updates...DON'T use 2.3.5! Use this link below to upload 2.3.3 and everything works great on the captivate.

    The only thing I found is that the directions how to get your phone into the downloading mode is WRONG. HOLD the volume keys and then plug in the USB cable to the pc. Don't hold the volume keys and power ....don't use the power button at all!

    Install Official KF1 Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread Firmware On Samsung Captivate

    Please post if this works for you.

    Hi Tetz,

    I know this is kinda odd time to ask but I accidentally upgraded my SGH-I897 firmware to Icecream intended for I9000, fortunately I found your post and found it very useful. My only problem is that it was intended for AT&T phone, do you know of any firmware link version for a Canadian Rogers Samsung Captivate?

    I appreciate very much your help thanks!

    Just keep going....now that you are at 2.3.....go with the Cyanogen Mod package and install Android 4.0 or 4.1....
    personally 4.1 is a little aggravating...it feels like it is new for the sake of "being new" and that some stuff is not necessarily better/easier/ or more intuitive.
