    When custom roms come out for the Captivate will this be able to make it where it is bloatfree from AT&T and have custom things being able to add any apk app without doing the sideloading stuff ect? I am wondering if custom roms will make it where we can do whatever we want without AT&T restrictions...

    You don't need a custom rom to remove AT&T bloat ware. Root, use rom manager to make a backup, use titanium backup to back up apps, uninstall the ones you don't want, edit the file to enable side loading, download the market tweak to un hide apps.

    Go here if you want more info and read the stickies.

    Already done that...not my question mate...I am wondering if future custom roms will be able to eliminate all this and be custom to whatever we want...I am wondering if there will be a way around the bloatware and restrictions in the first place for a better overall rom...without all this crap with tweaks ect...I am wondering if it will be possible.

    I've never flashed a custom rom before, are you saying that current custom roms are pre-loaded with bloatware? Otherwise, I really don't understand your question, as there is no custom rom that can read your mind as to how custom you want it to be...

    Sorry what I am saying is will these custom roms in the future be able to come PREMADE without all the bloatware and ATT restrictions? Such as having anything I want on market without ATT filtering my market ect...

    It will be, there is already a alpha stock rom available that is just vanilla Android 2.1. cryogen rom 6.0 will probably be the one you're after in the future.
