How To: Load a Custom ROM on the Samsung Captivate / Vibrant

I. Before You Begin

1. You must have done our How To Root the Samsung Vibrant / Captivate procedure. If not, do that then come back to this procedure to continue.

2. If you have already rooted your phone using ODIN, please flash the stock kernel through ODIN first then do our How To Root procedure then come back to this to continue.

II. Flash a Custom Recovery Image

1. On your phone, go to the Market and search for ROM Manager (the free one) and download/install it to your phone.

2. In the ROM Manager program, hit Flash Recovery, then choose your phone (Captivate or Vibrant).

3. Check ON Remember and click Allow when Superuser pops up asking for permission.

III. Flash a ROM

1. Head to our Samsung Captivate ROMs or Samsung Vibrant ROMs section of our site and choose a ROM you want to flash.

2. Save the ROM’s .zip file to your computer and do NOT extract it.

3. Plug in your phone via USB cable and mount the sd card.

4. Copy the ROM’s .zip file over to the root of your sd card (NOT in any folders, just on the sd card itself).

5. Unplug the phone

6. Turn off the phone and turn it back on by holding down Volume Up, Volume Down and Power. After the Vibrant/Captivate logo pops up for a second time you can let go.

7. Using the volume buttons and power to select choose  Reinstall Packages.

8. Once ClockworkMod Recovery comes up, select Wipe Data / Factory reset, then Yes.

9. Then select Install Zip from SD Card > Choose Zip from SD Card >Select the ROM you just put on the sdcard.

10. Wait for it to finish flashing then hit Reboot System Now and you are all done!

    Theres no roms for the phones!

    • Jackson,

      Developers are working on them butthey don’t have any yet (Cyanogen’s team is even working on a ROM now too). Only a matter of time.

  • MNM101

    ROM link for captivate or vibrant is blank.

    • MMM101,

      That would be because there aren’t any ROMs yet ūüôā Developers just got the phone to use a custom recovery screen. So ROMs will come soon (Cyanogen has announced his team is working on one as we speak).

    hey guys quick question i have the samsung Galaxy S i9000M from bell in canada. will these work for that phone? also will this unlock my phone?

    my screen is staying blank… somehow my image recovery is gone.. i successfully rooted my phone and went to change the rom.. all the screen does is go black when i select reinstall packages. what can i do.. help.. please

  • Skilz

    Thanks Unlockr.

    I have one question though. My phone is already rooted, and I understand the process of flashing a rom, but in what step do i acquire ClockworkMod in my phone?

    • Skilz

      And do you save the update.zip file to ur internal or external sd card? Thanks!

      • Skilz

        Nvm i answered my first question. But im still wondering about the second question.

        By the way when you do a data wipe does that erase Avatar and The Sims??

        • thefinn

          Download ClockworkMod from market,after root.
          update .zip goes into the root of your internal sd.That’s the16gb card.
          The stock removable card is 2gb and contains Avatar movie and trailer.
          Since Avatar is on the removable sd,it will not be wiped.The Sims will get wiped.
          If the rom has The Sims as an apk then it will be there when you boot the phone.
          If the rom still has access,via the apk, to the drm protected Avatar.dcf,then you’ll be able to play it.If not,then only the trailer.3gp will play.

  • thefinn

    I’ve installed and uninstalled two custom roms and am now back to the original stock rom.I am a newbie to this customization process and can’t thank the more knowledgeable contributors and developers,enough.for all there help.
    I seriously think,that if my Vibrant could be “bricked”,I would have already done it.
    If your new to this stuff,you have to be patient when modding and search forums for answers to your questions.
    Use this site and http://forum.xda-developers.com/index.php and you should be able to educate yourself and hopefully contribute to the android community.

    P.S.Keep the flaming to yourself,rather than blowin off steam to someone you don’t even know and will never meet.

  • the_dude_abides

    Unlockr – Great tutorials – thanks!

    After going through the XDA forums for a few days, it looks like those guys might have some roms pretty close to ready for the Captivate. I haven’t checked modaco or cyanogen tho. Are there any Captivate roms ready to be linked on your rom page here? How about a handy link for the stock captivate rom?

    Thanks again!

  • emceeskwaird

    how do I go about getting my vibrant back to stock.is there a stock rom to flash?and how do I flash stock recovery back as well?

  • sk8rboikelley

    what are the chances that my phone will be bricked? and that i wont be able to use anymore?

  • sk8rboikelley

    okay i have put the ROM onto my phones sd card, not in ANY files… and once i hold down the vol-up, vol-dwn, and pwr button, i wait for it to flash the second time, and then i release… well when i hit reinstall packages at (3:18) on the video, its suppose to reboot and then take me somewhere else, but it doesnt, it just starts my phone back up, and yes my phone IS rooted… please help me

  • nydj4ever

    i gotta quick question, what should u do if u can not use oden (am on a mac) any time i try to install the rom it look like it freezes at the installing update screen i wait 20 min and no changes

    • Nydj4ever,

      I’d recommend borrowing a friend with a PC and using that to do it (unfortunately, most programming software is made for PC, not Mac).

  • Kevin

    Unlockr, i think i bricked my Vibrant phone using Cognition v2.1.2 ROM. it stays stuck on boot screen, it wont go into recovery or download mode using the Hard keys (vol+ & – plus power) and the PC cant read anything thru the usb, so i cant even use Odin, or command prompt. I need some help on how to undo this, and boot into recovery. any idea on what i can do ?

    • Dalton

      kevin, leave your phone off then plug in usb the battery screen will start to load up. hold the vol. keys and power and as soon as the screen goes black let go of power (not vol keys just power) a digging andriod will appear then when you use odin if you dowloaded odin3 use the pda and pit files in came with it should set your phone back to factory settings. i had the same problem and it took me awhile

  • Tyler B

    I did the root thing right now when i power off and hold both volume keys to turn on it blinks vibrant twice i let go now i cant get the menu to pop up. please help

  • fixya

    Please don’t do anything…I have the same issue. After charged, it turned off by itself. I did exchange the battery with my co-worker. And it is fixed. I have been 2 days now without any turn off.
    Good luck….

  • Andrew

    If I select the wipe user data, what exactly gets erased, as in apps, and personal settings?
    Also, Is that step necessary?
    Thanks in Advance

  • I downloaded Vibrantfroyo_r3.zip and i am “installing update” on my rooted vibrant. it has been going for probably 20 minutes. How long does it normally take to install a new ROM? I am a total noob. thanks.

  • I figured it out. Basically Safari was unzipping the file automatically and I was compressing it again to get it back to a zip, which was probably corrupting it. Go to Preferences>General> Uncheck “open safe files after downloading”. Re-download the Vibrantfroyo_3 zip and did the process over. Each time I tried and failed I had to go into nandroid and restore, which I sort of crossed my fingers on, being a total noob and not knowing what was going to happen. When I would restore in nandroid, it was restoring to factory Vibrant 2.1 with TW. The tutorial above was actually really fool proof. I blame safari default setting for my extra time spent.

    thanks

  • daehan

    i have a question~!~!~!
    Everytime when new Rom comes out, do we have to step III #8 which is a factory reset???????????
    After rooting, i downloaded many apps. from the market..
    I don’t want to keep reinstalling it everytime new roms come out

    any suggestion???????

    • Xxsk8rdude06xx

      use app2sd then back up your apps after you update or install new rom simply go onto the app2sd applacation and install them off the card to your phone

    • Elivaldez84

      you can use my back up form the market to back up everything from contact log to apps and their settings. There is a free version and a paid version and a version for rooted users. You might also try titanium backup.

    I am confused as to where i put the unzipped ROM. you say my rooted SD card but exactly how do i get to that?

  • Do NOT extract (unzip) the ROM, leave it as a .zip file. And I say to put it on the “root of your sd card” not a rooted sd card. It just means put it on the sd card and not inside any folders it needs to be on the sd card itself.

  • will

    After I downloaded ROM Manager on my Vibrant and I pressed “Flash ClockworkMod Recovery,” but nothing happened… What’s wrong?

  • First you must be rooted… second you have to wait a while for it to flash recovery (a little yellow status bar should be filling up at the top of the screen.

  • Dnut_12

    I cant get it to go! it says installation aborted cant open sd……… What do i do?

  • Djphillyphil101

    so my question is if i already had busybox installed and after i undo the oclf and do a factory reset, will busybox still be install and if so would that mess it up? im currently running 2.1 update1 kernal version 2.6.29 eclair.uvji6 on my virbrant. never flashed b4 but shouldnt i do a nandroid backup first just in case? … and is that just the stock rom.zip file that gets saved to my sd to flash it again. keep the nandroid in the root. then flash the rom and select which rom i wanna flash… ok im feeling pretty confident, seems easy. was just if’y about the busybox

  • Liquidreign

    When I make a Nandroid back up with rom manager it goes to my phone storage

  • hey theunlockr, i downloaded cog rom 2.5 3 months ago, worked fine, now i tried to install cog rom 3.4, and it just says E; failure at line 15, tried 3 times nothing, so i just re-up 2.5 and worked again, any thoughts on why cog 3.4 wouldnt work, or do have a better rom that i might try….any thoughts would be great

    • ok well i figured out that on the new rom manager there is a install rom from sd….you know longer have to press and hold power and volume up/down to install rom manager will automatically do it for you….

      • We never recommend using ROM manager to install ROMs simply because there have been a lot of issues doing so in the past is all. It may take a few more seconds to do it manually but it’s safer for most people and its good for people just starting out to understand how to do it manually. But if you find it easier than by all means use ROM manager. Thanks for sharing!

    • Mrmaytagg
    • Caleb

      Hey, the problem is that when you put restore on your root of your sd you put .exe. So what you need to do is you need to go plug your phone into your computer trun on usb debugging and than go on your computer, Go to start computer what ever drive it is on and check to see if it says restore.exe if it does your good click on it and erase the.exe it happend to me and i was just like you looking every where and nobody put it up for me, so here ya go it will work trust me

    • Gdsgdfgsdgd

      you must download recovery v2 for vibrant. This is because you updated to 2.2 and that has recovery v3 which has extra security. just search vibrant (or captivate) recovery v2 on google and an install program will come out in the results. worked for me!

      • Coolguy

        Hes right. If you download recovery v2 it works flawlessy! thanks dude your a lifesaver

  • poopcutter3000

    For anyone that has bricked their phone doing this, and when I say bricked I mean that your phone is frozen on the Galaxy S GT I9000 screen or if in recovery and won’t let you reinstall packages and says “Installation Aborted or Failed”, follow the link I posted below and it will restore your pnone to factory settings. It saved my life. I thought that there was nothing I could do but with a little research and a will, we will prevail! And dont worry, it’s a simple process.

Any thoughts?

  • INCREDIBRY

    wont load the clockwork bootloader. i go through all the steps and when i get to reinstall packages it just goes back to the stock loader not the clockwork

  • Okay so about 2 months ago rooted and put a new rom on my samsung vibrant. Last night I decided I wanted to go back to the original stock rom by restore my phone back to its original factory settings (at the time it made sense to me). I did this by turning the phone off, holding the volume buttons and power button until a menu came up where I selected wipe to factory setting. In doing this I cleared the rom I had on my phone and am now stuck in a loop where my phone keeps trying to turn itself on but has nothing to boot up. I am able to get to the menu that enables me to wipe my phone to factory setting etc but that hasnt helped all too much.¬†I’m obviously a noob when it comes to this stuff but I believe the first step to getting my phone back is getting it to mount to my mac in order to load a new rom to the sd card (which I do not know how to do without turning the phone on). ¬†If anyone has any clue what has happened to my poor phone or what I could try to do at this point PLEASE HELP HELP HELP!

  • Djblaze247

  • Lazkid2

    you guys would have to go back to samsung vibrant 2,1 to be able to flash any sorts of roms on to the vibrant….you would do that by using odin and finding the stock rom for vibrant and then you would not have anymore problems running into signature errors and such

    Hello i’ve watched your root and custom ROM guides and i successfully rooted and downloaded ROM Manager from the market on my samsung captivate. However when I launch the ROM Manager app and press “Flash ClockworkMod Recovery”, the only options that appear when I try to confirm my phone model are Google Nexus S, Google Nexus S 4G, Samsung Epic4G, and the Samsung GalaxyS i90000. I cannot find a Samsung Captivate option on the list so I am stuck here, please help and tell me what is wrong!!! Thank you and please reply!!!
