My Goal:
To provide a single flashable zip with the most up-to-date Gingerbread porting efforts for the captivate!

The current Kernel/initramfs is newer then what is posted by supercurio in the i9k section.

Fixes, Tweaks & Extras:
External sd device support (kernel level)
Fully Deodexed
Fixed boot garbage output
Addded Updated Market
Fixed Market crash
Dual Boot Support
Added sqlite3
Added 3 Button Fix
Added Ad Blocking
Fixed the build.prop fingerprint so you can see all apps in the market
Fixed root not working
Fixed Busybox symlinks

Known Issues:
Camera does not work
GPS does not work (network can still find you, good for general location)
Wifi (if left on while phone enters sleep will cause a kernel panic)
General Stability (random things at random times can cause FC's, soft reboots, etc...)

Prerequisites:
Anything that converts /data to ext4 (Voodoo, ULF, etc...)

Usb drivers:
Download

Tech Demo Download Build-4:

Is this going to be any different than flashing the normal way?

PS. DG, if you want some extra mirror space check the download speed for Axura in my sig. Shoot me a PM if you would like me to set you up a FTP account with a couple gig of storage.

Yes, it will have a prerequisite of anything with voodoo enabled. From there you just flash a zip and boot.

Its not a perfect 1zip install from anything, yet...
