I'm following the steps provided here to root my Samsung Captivate (Galaxy-S). I install the USB drivers in the link provided. Whenever I connect my phone, I get the error
There was a problem installing this hardware... SAMSUNG Android Composite ADB Interface. I do have USB Debug mode checked on my phone.
The googling I have done on this issue mention downloading the Android SDK, but I have heard no mention of needing this on the XDA developers forum or in any other conversation about rooting. So, I wanted to ensure that downloading the Android SDK was necessary, or would even fix my problem before I bother installing it and its dependencies (Java JDK). I'm running Windows XP.
Note: Although I'm running a 64-bit machine, I Installed the x86 Samsung Drivers since Windows XP is a 32-bit OS. I hope that's right.
