Hey XDA
My samsung captivate has a broken power button and I'm stuck in a bootloop after installing a OTA update (Cyanogenmod)
I can't get into recovery but I successfully got into download mode..
What can I do from here?

Thanks!

You could use adb to get in recovery.

Otherwise, use Odin to flash stock in download mode.

NB.: Flashing with a broken power button is really tricky and dangerous on the S1 has it needs it to recover from bricks.

Hm, how do I use adb? Any tutorials out there? EDIT: for ADB don't I need my phone booted?

Thanks!
For Odin do I just put the stock file in PDA and start it? That's it?

You're gonna have to start reading. I'm at work and don't have time to write a tutorial.

To answer your questions, yes there are tutorials (google is your friend). It is fairly simple to use. The phone does need to be booted.

As for Odin, there are one-click version which are really easy to use. Stickied threads ftw http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...12&postcount=3

Either you go back to STOCK using Odin/Hemidall , Root it and Flash a Custom Kernel like Speedmod/Corn

(or)

Flash a Custom Kernel through Odin;
Download a custom kernel like Semahore/Corn/Speedmod (.tar version) depending upon the android version you're using(GB/ICS/JB/KK). Then place the downloaded tar file in PDA and Flash it (dont make any changes in the other fields). After flashing, Try going to recovery mode( by Volume UP+DOWN )..It should open recovery now.

Cheers!

PS: If you're man who likes to play with custom ROMs on Captivate(with broken power button), Its High likely that sometimes you'll get stuck with NO Recovery+NO Download mode, for which you'll need USB JIG to fix your cappy
