    I am using a mac and mostly illiterate on computers and with tech stuff like sideloading (i don't even know what that means).

    I really want to do the lag fix, then unroot my phone so it's back to normal. Would anyone be willing to private message me or even post a very easy to understand, step-by-step guide to doing this? it would be much appreciated.

    Be aware that the one click lag fix cannot unroot the Captivate. It's a known bug. I didn't know that before I rooted mine.

    1. Turn on USB debugging under application settings menu.
    2. Plug in USB cable to your phone and the Mac.
    3. Pull down notification window and mount the device.
    4. Download the rooting file from the following link and rename it 'update.zip'.

    http://theandroidsite.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/SGH-959-Root-Update.zip

    5. Drag the 'update.zip' file onto your phone mounted on your Mac.
    6. Unmount SD drive from the Mac and then unplug USB cable.
    7. Turn your phone off.
    8. Hold volume up, volume down keys and push the power button and hold all three buttons.
    9. When you see the white screen with AT&T logo appear, immediately release the power button only but keep holding the volume up and down buttons.
    10. From the service menu, choose 'reinstall packages'.
    11. You phone should reboot. Now your phone is rooted!
    12. Go to Android Market and download 'RyanZA's One Click Lag Fix' app and run it.
    13. Click 'Install EXT2 Tools'
    14. Click 'OneClickLagFix V1+'
    15. You are done.

    RyanZA's one click lag fix app might actually unroot your phone also. I would try that first.

    To unroot, download 'terminal emulator' from the market and type the following command.

    su (enter)
    rm -r /system/app/Superuser.apk (enter)
    rm -r /system/xbin/busybox (enter)
    rm -r /system/bin/su (enter)
    reboot (enter)
