    Ok guys/gals at last I gave up my BB after 7 yrs and moved on to Android..:D

    So I have the Captivate and would lie to Root it for obvious reasons..now can I root it to Gingerbread (Android 2.3)?? or stay with Froyo 2.2?
    If I can upgrade to 2.3 where can I get the root files..

    Thanks for your help
    :):)

    Rooting simply gives you read/write access to hidden parts of the phone, nothing to do with froyo/gingerbread. If you want froyo look start reading the xda forums.
