    hello all, I have a relatively new captivate that is now running Gingerbread 2.3.4. I bought it from someone who had put Gingerbread on it for me.

    I want to get it rooted but I have no idea what I'm doing so I'm hoping someone can help me with this.

    Picked this up from here

    I've had a look around and I'm finding the various firmware versions Samsung give their phones pretty confusing, I can't ascertain if the version you have is rooted/rootable or not. Do you have a SuperUser App installed?

    Also, do any of these methods help: Samsung Galaxy S/SGH-I897 - XDA-Developers

    i was thinking you were the op, anyway i had a problem on my little brothers phone when i rooted his. it took me 4 or 5 methods, finally one of them worked but i do not remember which one it was, its been awhile. but it has something to do with some kind of verification, and there is a thread on xda on how to disable it i believe, havent seen it in a while though

    the super one click that i got to work is a different version than the others i see on here, so, hah! it took me a few searches to locate one that worked, and a few tries doing it, but i got it. ^_^
