    Hi.. per message from ATT, I upgraded my Captivate to Gingerbread 2.3.5 and my build number is UCKK4.
    I am observing frequent Tethering/force close issues. Also phone hang many time when I use my client email or plug-in charger. Very very frustrating.. My froyo was much better !!.. Can anyone help whom should I contact or how to resolve this… thx

    I downloaded the \Gingerbread UCKJ1 2.3.5 Zip file\, followed all instructions and waited for 10 minutes + and the \ID : COM\ bar has not transferred to the yellow stage. Was I sopposed to click on the start button and/or check off the phone box ? I’m at a stand still at this point.

    The 2.3.5 install went great. There were no hiccups. However the phone now has following issues:
    1> Tethering manager forces close randomly.
    2> The defacto camera software that came with the phone now does not have the multiple SCN modes

    Also, in froyo I used to have the phone, email, browser in the bar on the bottom part of the screen. Now it has been replaced by Home button or App button. Is it possible to customize this bottom bar?

    Any inputs will be appreciated.

    Will you be working on the next version of gingerbread (eg..2.3.7 etc) or is the above version your last for Gingerbread?

    Thanks much!

    I loaded the 2.3.5 firmware and it works great except for one issue, I continue to have \Tethering Manager Force Close\ issues every time I either plug or unplug to charge and when I turn WiFi on and off. Tried reloading, same issue, tried emptying cache in recovery mode, issue still persists. Any ideas?

      I’m having the same issue with mine. It often locks up and restarts itself when doing either action. Here’s hoping for an answer!

      • Pradeep Neela

        its a beta update, there will be some issues! you can try clearing the cache again!

      I just updated mine this weekend (2/18/12)…everything went according to plan, except the same problem with the Tethering issue…which I cannot believe Samsung and ATT did NOT catch…since it comes right up in your face whenever you plug in a USB cable (or unplug it). I am an IS professional, and this is a totally unacceptable flaw that should have been caught, and at the very least, acknowledged and a patch made for it. I only hope Samsung is reading these posts…

    First: Install “kies” from Samsung. This will install the necessary drivers for your Captivate.

    Second: After driver installation, take out your sim card and memory card and remove the battery.

    Third: After installing the zip file containing the firmware, run odin (it’s in the zip) as administrator.

    Fourth: With odin running, hold both volume up and down and plug the device into your usb cable. Install battery after plugging in the usb cable while still holding both volume up and down. This should bring it into download mode. (If not, try battery first then cable all while holding volume up and down.)

    Fifth: Odin should display a yellow box with a com number. Select PDA button and navigate and select the included firmware.

    Sixth: Click start button and let it do its thing. It will reboot when finished and complete the installation on the phone.

    This is what I did and I had no problems. I used the included Odin and image file from the top of the page. I had zero data loss and didn’t have to reinstall any programs or settings. This is freakin AWESOME! Thank you!!!

    I had the same problem and thought I was screwed. Then I was trying to figure out how to reset to factory specs and another site had a link to do so. They said get back to download mode so I was trying the options. The third option was to remove the battery, the sim card, and the memory card; then put the battery back in, hold both volume buttons and plug the phone into the computer. Do not hit the power button. It went back to download mode. Since I was back there, I decided to try this again by unplugging phone and restarting this process. It started and locked up again. I closed odin, unplugged phone from computer and restarted odin. Then plugged phone back in and tried a third time. This time it worked perfectly. Don’t give up, it should work. Good luck.

    Hi. I just successfully installed android 2.3.5 but before when i was running 2.2 and i held down the power button i had an option to enable or disable the data(the 3g service) but know it is gone. I was wondering if there is a way to fix this. Also does hitting settings>Wireless and Network>Mobile Networks>Use Packet data(checked on) mean that I will be able to use the data plan?

    December 21, 2011 at 12:55 am

    The update works great and had made the phone very fast :-). And I fixed the tethering process problem to some extent by clearing the cache in recovery more. I still have to kill the tethering process once a day which is not a big deal.

    The big problem I am facing is the phone crashing/rebooting when I am in the middle of a phone call. It happens once or twice a day. I am unable to debug why it’s happening. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

        Looks like wiping out the data and reinstalling the ROM has fixed it. So far so good. But another problem now is that the gps is dead :(. How do I fix that?


        • Pradeep Neela

          January 5, 2012 at 9:51 am

          try latching the gps outside, not indoors! also check with the data connection as for calibration it will use the data initially!

    December 20, 2011 at 3:24 am

    Worked perfectly for me! Took only a little longer then 5 mins and I didn’t loose any data at all! I had all defaults to sd cards anyway. The phone is running extremely smooth and so far so good! Thank you so much!

        When I plug my phone in the computer with it on the computer registers that its connects and says its ready to use. Also odin can see my phone too while it’s on but not when it’s off. Doesn’t that mean I already have the drivers installed since everything works with the phone on?

        December 25, 2011 at 5:46 pm

    Thank you very much. I’ve been wanting to throw this phone into traffic for a while with all the bugs and issues I’ve had. I have been told 2.1 was known for the issues I was having, but there has yet to be an update to anything newer on the captivate. This was a fairly simple process and my phone seems to be working great now. I should mention, I was unable to get the phone to go into download mode as described above. Another method I found online which worked right away, pull the battery and reinstall it, then hold the volume buttons while plugging the phone into the usb of the computer.

    Hey there, android lovers, i’ve been doing flashing since the time i got my android from stock rom of 2.1 up to the latest i can acquire. one thing i’ve noticed though everytime i am flashing. that econe you got there and wont let you go to download status. what i did was leave the phone water dry(at least that was i could think of) i mean let it dry out of power for at least 10 mins(mine i left it about an hour after frustration of not able to successfully finishing it sooner). Then try again doing the steps of putting it to download mode, yes it did come back to that status after a while. But guess what, i found out that even if your flashing via odin stopped or crash eventually (just dont turn off your phone or better yet just leave it just like that in download mode) you just have to close your odin and just repeat the process(don’t worry as long as your phone is in download mode odin will detect it or correct me here if it does not apply to all phone but mine is that’s what happened). I’m not a very techie person but i do know alot about things and stuff. more on what i like most. hope this helps many. cheers! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I tried flashing my Samsung Captivate I897 with UCKF1 and it failed. Now I am stuck with the Phone->Triagle -> PC mode. Dspite several attempts not able to flash with KF1. Tried to flash I897 with UCKJ1 with Odin 1.0 and after sbl.bin it says Removed and Odin got disconnected from my phone. All options in Odin are grayed out. Used Odin v1.81, it seemed to apply the firmware but I am stuck in bootloop. After it said Removed!! in Odin log (RESET was the status in ID:COM) my phone went in to recovery mode and I had to select the reboot option to get it started again. After it rebooted, the last two steps appeared in Odin log and th status in ID:COM changed to PASS.

    Not sure if I did something wrong, but appreciate your help to bring my phone back to working.

    Here is the Odin log for your refence:

    I might want to go back to the official Froyo. Does anyone know how to do that? I know I can go all the way back to 2.1 and update back to 2.2, but I’d rather just roll back to 2.2.

    I opened odin, plugged in my phone, and clicked the PDA tab and could not find the ( \ ) file.
    So no update

    Whats up with that?

      unzip the file and browse from the same!

    Everything went fine with the download. My only problem is my sound is reversed. If I plug in my earphones I will hear it on my speaker. Same with answering the phone. I have to use the speaker mode to hear the caller. Should I reflash? and do I need to keep my sd card out when doing so?

      yes you can check with re flashing the device!

    FWIW, I reflashed and now wifi works. Weird.

      have you checked with the Wi Fi settings!

    Anyone else finding wifi no longer works?

    • NeaL Pradeep

      Wi Fi bug is there which is now been traced, the same will be fixed soon!

    I applied the upgrade last night, worked like a charm. It runs faster than 2.2 and does not experience the annoying hangs I experienced with 2.2. Best part… I finally have voice dialing back. I lost that feature when I changed out my Motorola 1200 for the Captivate.

    UPDATE: I just tried with Odin v1.81 version and it worked!
    You can download it from here:

      I HAD to use 1.81. The version of odin in the guide semi-bricked my phone. Using the guide here I was able to get back into download mode, then i was able to use odin 1.81 to load the os.

    Not sure if it really took. Never asked for a password when I downloaded the file. Says my phone is at 2.3.5 but didn’t loose anything from my phone. IE call logs, texts, APN settings, mail settings. Previous upgrade to 2.3.3 required all this info to be re entered. Not too sure about this one.

    • NeaL Pradeep

      November 6, 2011 at 9:55 pm

      you can proceed with this update!

      • Al

        November 6, 2011 at 9:57 pm

        Not sure what you mean by that. I DID do the update but because I never lost any info from my phone afterwards I am not sure it works. No password was needed for the down load either

    Same problem than others. It gets stuck while updating. I waited for 20 minutes and it doesn’t seem to complete.
    This is what I get:

    Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
    File analysis..
    Enter CS for MD5..
    Leave CS..
    Get PIT for mapping..
    Firmware update start..

    I have no trouble at all for any reason; everything went perfectly smooth, and it only took about 5 minutes. i didn’t even have to put in a password. my phone is running much, much smoother now. i also have “Unknown Sources” available to me now.

    There were some few things I kinda had to figure out on my own, though… and couple of minor features that should not have been there

    Other than, it’s been awesome. No problem at all so far!

      Update: The only main thing I’ve lost is the ability to capture a screenshot. Other than that, Gingerbread is what Captivate needed. Its performance is smooth. I’m now looking forward for a stable Ice Cream Sandwich, IF it will ever be released.

    Hi, I am having the same issue as JLA. The las message it says is leave CS and it is taking over 10 minutes and not going anywhere. I also downloaded the drivers. I’ll try a computer restart if it doesn’t work this time. Also the zip file didn’t ask for a password.

    Hi I am having some issues updating my captivate. Odin recognizes my phone and i start the update … but it doesn’t finish, the last message in Odin says leave CS… over 10 minutes it takes… whats going on?

  62. Ari

    October 25, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    oddly enough the Odin recognized my captivate when I unplugged it to another usb port!

  63. Ari

    October 22, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    Odin dosen;t recognize the phone, i have all the drivers installed.
    can you give me a hand?

    • NeaL Pradeep

      October 24, 2011 at 1:03 am

      have you installed the kies in your pc!?

    • Lisa

      October 24, 2011 at 11:22 pm

      Hi, My Captivate didn’t recognize the update either. I spent some time on the phone with my Carrier trying to figure out why Kies wouldn’t let me upgrade… then they made me call Samsung, and they did the same trouble shooting with me. Again, no update. I actually had to send my phone into Samsung to have them flash it then Update it to 2.3 for me.

      I don’t know why, and they wouldn’t tell me why either. I had no problem updating to 2.2 but 2.3 wouldn’t work.

    With Gingerbread 2.3.5, will the i897 fianally do voice dial via Bluetooth?

    • Gary

      October 22, 2011 at 8:16 am

      Yes, it works.

      My stock email client and USB tether are force closing, however.

      I have UCKJ3 2.3.5 and I can dial via bluetooth!
