So after about an hour last night I was able to successfully get SLIM running on my phone. The order of events was as follows:

Note: I was coming from Galnet Miui 2.11.26
1). Downloaded base rom + essentials package
2). Data/factor reset --> Flashed base rom through CWM = boot loop
3). Rebooted into CWM, data/factory reset --> Flashed again through CWM = boot loop
4). Used Odin 1 click to install 2.3.4
5). Installed EZboot GB boot loaders
6). Flashed SLIM again --> boot loop
7). Repeated step 4 and 5
8). Downloaded and flashed - teamhacksung's build 16
9). THS16 worked/phone booted
10). Rebooted into recovery and flashed SLIM base rom + essentials package with no problems
11). Phone now has SLIM ICS on it

So tldr; Stock 2.3.4 --> EZboot GBL --> THS16 --> SLIM + essentials
Works perfectly. This ROM is awesome.

Wow thats some detailed procedure. I would like somebody who is on MIUI or another ICS or GB Rom to try this and tell me if this works
  • Flash my Essentials first, reboot to recovery
  • wipe data, flash base + essentials + wifi patch ( sgs, and captivate users), reboot

I'm getting a few random reboots, but it's fantastic other than that! Much faster than ICSSGS that I'd been running for the past few months.

Pls describe how you flashed, what kernel you are on etc.

I was on ICSSGS RC3, wasn't happy with performance so I was going to flash back to a KK4 ROM (Serenity). I flashed Corn kernel, then Serenity. Flash didn't work, I was still stuck on CM Platypus kernel. Repeated process, same problem. I decided to flash Slim ICS. Cleared data, dalvik, then flashed Slim package, then essentials without rebooting. Didn't flash any extra kernels or anything. Everything is stock.

Also, my power button has stopped working :/

No wonder Serentiy didn't work after you flashed it from ICS. Because you have to repartition your phone when going from AOSP to Samsung GB Roms.

I had no problems flashing this ROM, I was on Dark Knight ICS, then wiped data/cache, and formatted system and flashed the base rom and the captivate essentials package right afterwards (like the OP says) and everything works perfect. You should be able to follow this procedure from any ROM (such as KK4, CM7, ICS, etc).

Hi, I just wanted to say great job on this ROM. I did a full wipe before flashing and I haven't had a single issue. Keep up the good work!

Thank you, excellent job with the wifi fix!

I've noticed what appears to be another bug. The battery has been very inaccurate on this ROM. Sometimes my phone seems to discharge quickly and when I plug it in, the battery indicator will hardly change for a full hour or more (+/- 2%). Sometimes it even looks like the battery is slightly depleting while connected. When I reboot, it will show a much higher percentage. Also, the lockscreen percentage does not always agree with the notification bar percentage.

The charging animation when the phone is off no longer works either.

Question Unfortunately, E-Mail has stopped
This was after flashing 1) GAPPS latest
2) E-Mail.apk from XDA Captivate Forums.

Any ideas?
