When I get to the clockwork recovery and select backup and restore, nothing happens ... the screen just goes black with the four keys at the bottom lit up. Is it normal? Do I have to wait it out? or what?
EDIT: Okay, I got it. By accident. It seems I have to press the back key instead of the home key after selecting backup and restore .. and also after further selections.

Thank you a million times over. I was about to lather my SF in butter and call it toast. FC loop is closed and my phone usa back to normal, with one exception. No Bing. I've never attempted to remove it in the past (though I'm glad it's gone. Did one of the files you provided to bring my phone back to life eliminate the Bing?
Just curious and very thankful.

i had to use my wife's mac with windows in bootcamp. and i didn't have an sd card reader, but she has a fascinate as well so i just used her phone as an sd card reader. (smart thinking on my part).
i got into the loop when i tried to figure out how to flash in a new rom. and i was trying to do a nandroid backup... it didn't go well.
now to try it again...

I must thank you (on top of the Thanks button), for posting this information. Also, thanks to others who posted tidbits of information regarding "recovery" of a phone.
Last night, I was attempting to do the JT's Clean ROM. It would seem that when I thought that I had downloaded all of the ROM (rom, extras, no-voodoo kernel).. that it was only the no-Voodoo kernel that made it initially .. I proceeded with the "Backup/Wipe" of the phone (probably while the ROM was still being downloaded). Needless to say, the kernel update worked, but I had no updated ROM .. and due to the Data/Cache Wipe, I was left with a Stock Fascinate with new kernel.
I initially knew no other option than to just restore the backup that I had prior to the kernel update. ... This is when I screwed the pooch .. During the Restore.. I stupidly decided to play around with the SD Card .. well, I accidentally ejected it.. which immediately failed the restore.
To make matters worse, I could then not get the SD Card to be recognized, the "update.zip" wouldn't work in the normal Android Recover screen, thus, I couldn't get back to CWRecovery to re-attempt Restore ..
I found this thread, as well as other threads which talked about returning to Stock..
I was able to use Odin to flash the original Kernel, as well as the proper Recovery, along with the posted Stock Fascinate image ... I then had other problems (including force-close hell at one point)...
All-in-all.. after quite a bit of effort, I was able to get my phone back to a stable point. I was then able to restore my pre-ROM Backup, (ensuring not to touch the SD Card).
Once I was reset back to the point prior to attempting ROM.. I re-attempted the Clean ROM, this time being sure to update in the following order..
JT's Clean ROM - reboot / backup / wipe / install
-- installed CWMod, and ROM Manager
noVoodoo Kernel - Reboot / Backup / install
extras - reboot/backup/install
If you guys hadn't have posted all these tips a while back, then I'd be waiting for a new phone in the mail ...

Ran into this issue while playing around with the voodoo kernel's the other night. Between the force close loop and the 0.00 space available problem, it took a few hours to fully recover. Thanks for posting this as it was literally my reference guide while battling everything out....

Ok. I think I have a new one. I had to go through these steps to end the FCL of hell, then remove voodoo using XDA's method, and I'm back up and running.
Now the phone acts as if I've enabled the (missing) option to disable "always-on 3G/EVDO". If I am not connected to wifi and wake my phone, the 3G icon does not appear. The only problem this has caused is that I can't access the Market without opening the browser or initiating a data connection some other way. Within a minute of not using data, 3G goes back off. Also, I was talking to my parents last night and they said there was some "reverberation" in my voice.
Any ideas? Is it possible to copy the stock modem file from the system dump to the phone without bricking it (again)?
Actually, I don't think I've flashed the stock kernel back. Would that help?

I'm wondering if anyone can help. I followed all the steps to get rid of the force closing on my phone, and I'm at the end of it waiting for my phone to reboot after running the ClockworkMod. Does the reboot take a while, or is it supposed to be instant??

I just wish someone would help with my radio issue. It's getting annoying to have intermittent network connections that go down whenever I try to retrieve data.

So I think it's fixed. Had to go into the hidden menus for phone diags to set the network mode from "None" to "WCDMA (Preferred). Then changed DSA back to factory. So far I haven't dropped a data connection. In 5 minutes. Let's hope it's fixed for good!
EDIT: I spoke too soon. The screen went black from the timeout. When I turned it back on, the phone took about 1-2 minutes to connect to Verizon. Back to the workbench! :-(

You guys are the best!
Thank you Cory, and anyone who had a hand in putting this together. I thougght I was screwed (bricked). I played so much modding my phone, trying to find just the right mix, I got into that "loop from hell". I followed th OP and I have a new Fascinate, without having to go to VZW for a referb.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

This ended some FC issues but I still have FC when I try to download apps from the market. I also only have WiFi, no 3g. When I try to dial phone says I am in airplane mode, but I am not. If I deselect airplane mode in settings, it some how gets selected again, and again....
Verizon is over-nighting a new phone to me and I am sending this phone back, but I am afraid they will see the superuser app icon and void warrenty. Superuser can't uninstall. Any ideas anyone?
