Need help getting CWM Recovery :(
I load odin, plug in phone, yellow box shows up. I click pda and find the .tar file and this is what i get..
<ID:0/005> Odin v.3 engine (ID:5)..
<ID:0/005> File analysis..
it just gets stuck at setup connection forever...
Can anyone help?
EDIT: also, i have a samsung fascinate with telus not with verizon... i dont know if that matters... i am a noob, but am rather good with computers!

To get you out of trouble......
*This method only works on verizon fascinate.....not other variants(also doesn't work on mac or linux users)
1. Make sure you have Samsung drivers installed on your pc
2. Download odin from here to your pc
3. Download clockwork package to your pc
*create a folder and put those two files together on pc
4. go to setting-> application-> development-> USB debugging
5. on your phone
Turn phone off-> pull the battery out completely-> plug usb to your phone
-> press volume down until you see a triangle screen comes up
6. on your pc
open odin(make sure it shows yellow bar on the port; this means your phone has detected)-> click PDA and select CWMrecovery.tar-> click start
* your phone will reboot upon completion.
7. Using clockwork, back up your files immediately.
download rom manager-> select flash clockwork mod-> click on fascinate-> when scanning has done, click backup current ROM
*your phone will reboot and start backing up your file. Do not turn it off....your phone will reboot upon completion.

Yes, debugging is enabled. My screen has a yellow triangle with "Downloading..." and under that "Do not turn of Target!!!". But that's what it looked like before I tried to flash CWM via Odin so I don't think anything's happening. I think my problem is I used Rom Manager to attempt to flash CWM as that's how I did it on my Droid.
