No need to load a custom ROM. You have two paths possible -- You can simply use special software on your PC to sideload apps or you can do some edits to the configuration databases on the phone to bypass the block permanently. This page covers both methods -- http://samsungcaptivate.wikia.com/wiki/How_to_Sideload

In ICS and JB, you should find this option in Settings → Security in a section called "Device Administration"

Turns out I was right to suspect that this has been done before. The fix I was looking for was Super One Click. It has a fix to allow non market apps. I think what it does is to change the config file that the settings dialog ("Allow Non Market Apps") normally sets. My guess its that AT&T just took out the UI for the option. Anyway, works perfectly and ...

Another option is to use Dropbox to transfer the apks. That was how I got them on my Archos tab before I got the market on there. Dropbox lets you download the dropbox app directly from their website, so there's no market needed. After that all you have to do is send every apk from your phone that you want onto your tablet to Dropbox, then you can install ...

I don't own a Samsung Galaxy S, and certainly not a user of AT&T, but on my Samsung Spica (Samdroid Mod), if I dropped an .apk file in /data/app/ or /system/app (warning: you need to be rooted to write to these locations, so you will need Terminal Emulator or Root Explorer) Android will immediately recognize and install the apk. Assuming AT&T has not ...

If the app you want is in the Market but blocked by AT&T, you can do this: Turn off your phone. Pop out the SIM card. Turn your phone back on and connect to a Wi-Fi network. Open the Android Market, search for, and install the previously carrier-blocked app. Turn off your phone. Pop the SIM card back in. Turn your phone back on. Enjoy! (source: ...

No, on stock AT&T ROM you cannot install applications from unknown sources. You have to root your phone, and install a 3rd party ROM. This is because AT&T removed the "Allow Unknown Sources" option in the settings. The only way around this is to install a ROM that allows unknown sources. (or you can use ADB as you mentioned in your original ...
