first off want to thank reinbeau for pointing me in the right direction and linking me to some awesome tutorial videos. i have had my cappy for about 9 months now and have not been 100% satisfied. i thought my prayers where answered when ATT came out with Froyo but for whatever reason i could not load it which lead me to research how to flash a custom rom. i have tinkered with it a bit but never understood the written direction to flashing a rom. seriously WTF is an odin, kernel, clockerwork modm recovery mode, etc... it was/is every overwhelming to a novice. so... today i flashed Serendipity 6.4 Download - Serendipity and REDROM theme Theme - Serendipity i know this video is for a different rom but i followed these directions to a "T" and it worked perfectly.
