You want the i897 version ...this kernel is an i9000 kernel, just made to work correctly on the captivate..

I897 version is for the captivate
I9000 version is for the actual i9000

I think everything went smooth with enabling LagFix here is what I see on Lagfix Menu:

Data_FS=ext4
Cache_FS=ext4
DBDATA_FS=ext4
DATA_LOOP=false
CACHE_LOOP=false
DBDATA-LOOP=false
BIND_DATA_TO_DBDATA=false

You might not have used the correct kernel.

That was one of the issues I had when using a speedmod I9000 kernel by mistake.

i.e. the screen would rotate in landscape once but would never go back to portrait. hence why 90° off.

I keep seeing the same questions asked over and over, most of these have already been answered in the first 10 pages or so but they keep getting asked, so again im going to post the basics that you need to know about this kernel (Some of this is taken from Hardcores FAQ...READ IT!)

[Q] What do all the tweaks in CWM mean? And which tweaks should I use?
[A] The speed tweaks in CWM is taking from Hardcores Startup Speed Tweaks here, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=813309. You should use the first 4 tweaks, as the optional tweaks are only support for TUN and CIFS, if you dont know what they do then you do not need them.


[Q] After I flashed this kernel my screen does not rotate correctly..
[A] You have flashed the wrong version, there are 2 versions of this kernel, one for the Captivate and one for the i9000, the correct one will say i897 in the file name, make sure its there

[Q] After flashing this kernel, I have static using bluetooth or during phone calls
[A] Chances are your using a Captivate modem, this is an i9000 kernel tweaked to work on the Captivate, so you need to use an i9000 modem, theres quite a few to choose from (JK3, JK4, JL2, JL3..etc) Theres a link in my sig, under the modem I use, where you can download

[Q] Im using JPY or another i9000 rom, do I need to flash the Captivate version or the i9000 version?
[A] You need to flash the Captivate version. This kernel is an i9000 kernel but the Captivate version is reoriented so it works correctly on the Captivate, the i9000 version is for the actual i9000

[Q] Does this kernel include the Wifi Battery Drain Fix?
[A] NO, this is not kernel based, if the Rom you are using did not include it, you will need to download it (Link is in my sig, JPA WiFi)

[Q] Do I need to disable lagfix coming from K12K to K12L?
[A] No, you do not need to disable lagfix when switching to a newer version

[Q] I am currently using a Lagfix. Do I need to remove the lagfix before changing kernels?
[A] If you are using a loop lagfix like RyanZA's One Click Lagfix (OCLF), you *must* un-lagfix first. But if you are upgrading from another Universal Lagfix Kernel or Voodoo, you don't need to remove the lagfix. However, it is always safest to remove the lagfix before changing kernels.

[Q] Which lagfix do you recommend?
[A] I recommend EXT4 All lagfix, with the SAFER ext4 mount option. Other lagfixes have a high risk of data loss if the phone crashes or is suddenly powered off or rebooted

[Q] Whats the difference in the "warm" and "cold" versions?
[A] If you screen is to yellow, flash the cold version, it makes it more blue to even it out. If your screen is to blue, flash the warm version, it makes it more yellow to even it out.

[Q] Whats the difference between the 250HZ version and the 500HZ version?
[A] HZ is an internal timer value used by the Android/Linux kernel. It affects the timer granularity of some kernel functions. The higher the HZ, the smoother the User Interface should be, up to a certain point - too high a HZ value will make CPU-bound tasks slower. However, the differences are very minor.

[Q] When I try to go into recovery I now have 3e and says ..

Code:
Install from package
Finding update package
Opening update package
Verifying update package
E: failed to verify whole-file signature
E: signature verification failed

Applying Multi-CSC
Installing Multi-CSC
Installation aborted
[A] Follow my guide here, takes about 2sec and your good to go.. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=909213


Thats all that I can think of right now, if theres anything else that I forgot let me know and ill post it...

The L version is just a little too dim for my tastes. I understand it is a "feature" to prevent the phone from going full brightness as much but sitting here in my office under the lights the screen is probably 1/3 the way up.

EDIT: found the battery drain thread with fixes! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=884816

thanks for your response, following some of the advice on wi-fi setting from your response link... will run the update-wifi-dxjpa.zip later in the day and test tonight...

I was just telling my friend that I wished we had auto brightness that was lower. Awesome!
