Also, my home key now operates as the back key with no key working as home. I flashed the XWKDD insecure kernel as directed by one of the walk throughs.
Before I flashed anything I couldn't get the phone into download mode using the three button combo, but I was able to do it simply by having the phone in download mode and plugging in the USB cable.
How should I proceed? I assume I need to flash to stock and try again with another kernel, but I can't find that as an option. Is there another way to go into download mode? Please help. I still have the same captivate that I bought on release date and I would love to have a fully functional phone for the first time in over a year!
Thanks in advance!
Download mode, this has ALWAYS worked for me:
DO NOT HIT POWER
Hold VolUp + VolDn
Insert USB cable into phone
Phone should power up right into download mode.
Edit: Stock kernel was posted 5-10 minutes ago in dev section BTW.
