    I seem to be having problems getting access into recovery mode.
    It's a brand new Captivate and it came preloaded with Firmware 2.1-update1

    I tried variations on this, but from everything I've heard, this should work just fine:
    Hold both volume buttons while powering on and keep holding the power button 3 seconds after the ATT logo appears (before it power cycles itself).

    Nothing triggers, and it just boots up normally.


    I've also tried the "One Click Root/UnRoot" method, with no luck.

    Has ATT gotta more aggressive with locking us out?

    Return the phone for one that has the button combo recovery before you start modding the phone or you risk bricking an unbrickable phone. Dowload and install SDK and use adb for now at least then you could get root.
