A friend of mine wants me update his Captivate to the Official 2.2 and root it for him. Will this Rootzwiki root method work to manually root on the Official update?

I'm actually not sure about that... I've never installed the UCKB1 stock 2.2. I do know that it comes with 3e recovery and it's more difficult to root because of that. I looked into it a bit, and SuperOneClick will root a stock 2.2 Captivate, or so it says. It does sound more simple than the RootzWiki version. Here's a link to the app: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682

Let me know if it works!

Guess I'll do some more digging around. I prefer to root manuall (makes me feel like I did something productive). If I cannot find out a sure fire ADB method I will try this and let you know.
