AIO Captivate Toolbox: Everything in One Place, Great Tool for both Beginners and Advanced Users
This is a perfect example of a program that just works and does its job. This desktop program made by XDA member bay_wolf gathers all basic utilities and puts them in one place, including all steps from root to installing custom ROMs. So, if you’re a beginner Samsung Captivate user and would like to get more out of your phone, simply download this tool and follow every step. You can also sideload apps from this program. You don’t have to use more than 6 programs to do all of this – everything is now available in one place.

More information and the program itself can be found in the AIO Captivate Toolbox thread.

Below this is the start of a standard...
