If you are making the backup through recovery you don't need to root either. Only if you were booting back into the ROM to make backups with an application

Flash a recovery
Make a backup in recovery
Factory reset
Flash rom
Reboot

Anything that the recovery can do, does not require being rooted. It supersedes root in a way.

Unable to flash roms less then KitKat
Hello all,

Followed these steps and I'm unable to FLASH any Rom less then KitKat. "Slim-captivate-4.4.4.build.9.0-WEEKLY-8328" flashes without any issues but my IMEI and baseband disappear. I tried flashing the following Roms via the CWM in the speedmod-kernel-i897-k13e-500hz.tar, CornKernel_UCKK4_v706.tar, cm7-galaxys-initial-kernel_CWM3005.tar with out luck

UNSUCCESSFUL ROM FLASH:
cm-7.2.0-captivatemtd.zip
cm-9.1.0-captivatemtd.zip
cm-10.1.3-captivatemtd.zip
Android_JZO54K_4.1.2_stock_captivate_B.zip
Legend_v6_KK4_JB_FW.zip

Get the following error:
-- Installing: SDCARD:cm-10.1.3-captivatemtd.zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
E:Can't open /mnt/sdcard/cm-10.1.3-captivatemtd.zip
(bad)
Installation aborted.


I had to copy the file to the internal SD since speedmod-kernel is unable to access or mount the external_SD. I'm on GB 2.3.5 (I897UCKJ3_withBL). So not sure what I'm missing?! Been awhile since I flash a Captivate. Do I have convert the file system to MTD? Any help would be great!

Thanks in advance.

SON OF A GUN! Spent the entire day on this yesterday toying with this. Don't ever recall it being this complicated to flash a Cappy. Turns of the Micro SD I was copying the Rom files was defective and would corrupt them. Tried a different card and was able to flash cm-10.1.3-captivatemtd.zip!
