How to back up your APPS + data (not system data) with Titanium Backup
Go to the market and download and install Titanium Backup
Load up Titanium Backup and allow super user.
Go into Preferences and change Backup Folder name to external_sd/TitaniumBackup (this will save a copy of the files to your external SD card for restoring after flash) then click back and it will reload.
Now go to batch and select backup all user apps. Select the apps you want and hit run batch (top of the screen) once it is finished (you will know as there is a notification in the drop down that it is done) Double check you external sd for the Titanium Backup folder, if it is there then you are good, if not double check the spelling. Make sure it is an underscore between external and sd. ex. external-sd = Wrong..... external_sd = right so it should read external_sd/TitaniumBackup
Ok So you Fully Bricked your Captivate Here is a last ray of hope

Themes and Stuff

Voltage Settings (If Kernal Supports OC/UV)
VoltageApp settings will stick until reboot, but to get them to stay after rebooting, this is what worked for me; You will need Root Explorer for this one
Setup Voltage App like you want
Menu>Apply for Now
Menu>Save as boot settings
Open Root Explorer
Navigate to /etc/init.d
Locate file saved for boot settings (S_volt_scheduler)
Rename "S_volt_scheduler" to "S_98_volt_scheduler"
Open VoltageApp to verify settings stuck
AT&T Wap Settings
Power Cycle without pulling battery
Hold volume up and power for 10 sec. (This will reboot your phone without a battery pull)
Backing Up your NV_data
Thread With more info
The reason its important to back up your NV_data (Non-volitile) is this has your imei, product code, unlock codes and model. This informatioin is not recreated with a JF6 OCD (One click downloader)
Certain Roms write data to your NV_data
(i think it was JPC leak from I9000 that was the first one. it changed everyones product code to I897ZKAKOR)
Axura changes the product code to I959ZKATMB or something like that
The Correct Product code for our Captivate is I897ZKAATT.
If your IMEI says 004999010640000 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 004999010640000 end_of_the_skype_highlighting begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 004999010640000 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 004999010640000 end_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting this is incorrect also and you may find your phone to stop making calls as this is like a debugging or prototype imei
Finally, if your unlock code is FFFFFFFF, you need this repair in order to unlock your code
All of these can be fixed with Helroz's Repair_nv_data.zip Found Here: http://perso.numericable.fr/helroz/P...ir_nv_data.zip
I did not create the software or any of the instructions, THis is credited to Helroz in the vibrant forum (please thank and donate to him) he came up with all of this, Im just sharing knowlage.
this can be found here: Unlocking Tmo Vibrant
Just read the read me first. then the .Doc Make sure you are at Stock JH7 (I didnt try jf6) and root with busy Box (Super One click by CLShort Fuse worked for me)
Then Step 2,3 and 4. Monitor your phone for SU access attempts, it has several and be patient and read what its asking you to look for,
Now if you havent Backed up your NV_data then now is the time. I Use root explorer and just copy the /efs folder to a safe place (I have a copy on my ext. sd card and a backup hard drive)
You can also Use SGS tools (not SGS tool Box) to do a product code check. This also copies all of the pertenant NV_Data files to a folder on your internal SD card. you can use these also if you want.
Flashing JPP Modem to enable 850
The only guaranteed method for enabling 850 on jpp that is proven to work every time is to:
Flash stock using odin
Flash jg8 modem
Flash rom with jpp modem
Hopping around to other modems and back to jpp after this will kill 850 as well.
For some this is not an issue as they are in areas where 850 is not utilized by AT&T but for others jpp will cause headaches if they try using it without following these steps.
Themes and Graphics
Disable Vodoo before flashing themes like blackfroyo with recovery. (if Running vodoo)
How to change Boot Animation.

Download the libcamera.so from here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11343737/libcamera.so
Use root explorer or whatever method you prefer and make a backup copy of /system/lib/libcamera.so just in case you need to get it back.
Copy the libcamera.so you downloaded from above link over the existing one in /system/lib.
Delete or rename the existing email.apk in /system/app to test that this fix works.
Open Barcode Scanner and enjoy the fact that it no longer force closes.
This will allow people to use whatever email.apk they prefer...or if they are like me they can get rid of the apk altogether.
