Ok... from the top - I've done a good amount of flashing custom ROMs (B & N Nook and Captivate) and reading on forums but I'm currently stumped. I can't boot into the ClockworkMod recovery - instead I go to the stock android system recovery <3e>. This has been my complete procedure:

1 - Odin3 one-click downloader and connect phone in downloading... mode, click "start" to go back to stock
2 - odin one click "master clear"
3 - Samsung Kies update to Android 2.2 froyo and then Android 2.3 Gingerbread
4 - One click root
5 - Put .zip of ROM on internal sd root
6 - Odin3 v1.82 load ClockworkMod Recovery .tar

Now here is where I am stuck - I have the most up to date ClockworkMod Recovery but I can't boot into anything but the stock android system recovery <3e> (either through the app or by holding volume up and down and powering on) - where if I change the zip file name to update and try to apply update from sdcard I get an error that the signature verification failed. I'd like to install the latest build of ICS but I am just stuck - any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

You'll need a kernel with the non-3e recovery baked in. You can either flash a Gingerbread kernel with CWM (e.g. Boog's kernel) or flash a stock gingerbread rom with CWM in the kernel.

Ok - thank you. I have downloaded that Heimdall one-click .jar file. However I'm having trouble opening it... I feel really foolish ont his but if I extract the files I see a readme file that says I shouldn't be reading it and I have gone the wrong way. But if I open the unextracted file it tries to open in WinRAR and again non of the files seem like a program file that I can just open and run. Sorry about this...

No problem - just double-click the file. The .jar is an executable file that will install the necessary drivers, open the heimdall program, and get everything ready to flash. Once it's ready and sees your phone in download mode, all you have to do is click flash and it will do the rest.

I have now figured out ICS - I think I had the wrong .zip I was trying to install... Does the ICS allow for overclocking?

Ok - my apologies again for keeping going with this (but my main goal is to get to ICS) with that kernel it wouldn't let me install ICS (but I was able to do the latest CyanogenMod). On the Team Hacksung Wiki page FAQ on Galazy S it looks like CM7 kernels don't work - did the one I installed from the above thread have a CM7 kernel?

Does anyone know of a specific kernel I can use to go from stock 2.3.5 so I can boot into ClockworkMod Recovery and install the ICS zip?

I'm sorry - I needed to update or install Java... Then I needed to install the correct drivers - automatically routed to this through the Heimdall program so it was easy enough (I think this has to do with switching between ODIN and Heimdall). Thank you again so much for the help. Time to give ICS a shot

Flash back to stock 2.1 which includes the 2e recovery which doesn't have signature checks. With that you can flash a cwm zip and get into the clockworkmod recovery. On the captivate you gotta reinstall the the update zip twice, once to install cwm, the other to actually go into cwm.

I wouldn't recommend flashing back to 2.1, as it is much easier to simply flash a kernel with CWM baked in.

That is also an option, both able to be done with several clicks of a button.
