One-Click Unbrick For Samsung Captivate
By this point in time, if you have been a member of this site for longer than a couple of years, you have witnessed rather complicated processes such as rooting and flashing, turned into easy 1 click procedures. These are normally fool proof and will let you get the most out of your devices while saving you a few hours of reading. However, there is always a risk of bricking your device. This is a time for you to sit down with a good cup of coffee and start reading because unbricking is a fairly complicated procedure that may require special hardware to get it accomplished (JTAG). It looks like this is a thing of the past for Captivate owners because XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler just released a 1 click unbricking tool. The application is actually part of his Heimdall’s project and seems to work very well for various platforms including Linux.
The dev is looking for feedback on this tool. Please try it out and see if it works for you.
