Click on my "Helpful Links" signature below. Then see the Guides and Root (How to). That's about as easy as it is gonna get, apart from someone taking ur phone and doin it for ya.

Default Guide of Guides

I just went through the process of rooting and roming for the first time and wrote this up for a buddy of mine interested in doing the same. The fact that this is the first time I've done this should be a bit of a warning though. Still, it worked for me.

Here's basically what I did. You might want to read through them all before starting.
  1. Backup manually by mounting your phone to your computer and copying everything you care about
  2. Root
    1. I used this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1444382
    2. From a Mac, I think you can do the same, but flash with Heimdall instead of Odin
  3. Now that you have root, get Titanium Backup from the Market and backup
    1. This is an awesome app, you can also use it to remove the AT&T bloatware, which will really improve your phone
  4. Install ClockworkMod (aka, CWM)
    1. Flash this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...7&d=1302623831
  5. Follow ROM instructions
    1. I used Slim ICS: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1517486
    2. Download and install instructions on the web site: http://www.slimroms.com/
      1. Grab a nightly CM9 ROM for that: http://download.cyanogenmod.com/?device=captivatemtd

Were the instructions I posted not helpful? I thought they were very clear ... not necessarily my steps, but the content in the links.

If you're not understanding one or more of the steps, which ones?
