yeah thats the problem ,,,,when you downloaded superclean, either it opened itself or you opened it,,,but i think it opened itself, i dont remember to keep it zipped on a mac,,,
what you can do is go to your browers, go to android central, go to the superclean file and try to download the file directly from the phone

Alpina, so you just left your terminal open to this until it worked through the install? ( Sorry, this was for post #178). I am attempting this now and am ending up with the same message.
And patience is a virtue. It worked after about 30 seconds of waiting.
To all of you who have posted your insight and assistance, many thanks! It's amazing!

Root my Fascinate on a Mac?
I'm seriously thinking about rooting my Fascinate and don't know much about it. I've read several threads on rooting but most of what I see gives instructions using a PC, with installing drivers & such.
Unless I just haven't found the right place, is there an up-to-date guide with easy step-by-steps for rooting on a Mac, especially with the mounting issues and the workarounds?
Thanks for any help!

waited 15 minutes and nothing.
typed in the command you suggested and this is the result
failed to copy 'zImage' to '/sdcard/zImage': Permission denied
235 KB/s (313888 bytes in 1.299s)
0 KB/s (24 bytes in 0.135s)
and my phone froze
rebooted and ran the program again... my Mac kicked my phone out (after 10 minutes) and the phone rebooted...
terminal says: failed to read from /sdcard/zImage (Bad file number)
ran cwm app and get this:
120-MacBook-2:Files owner1$ /Users/owner1/Desktop/1-click-clockworkmod-2.1-to-2.2/Files/cwm.sh
failed to copy 'zImage-recovery' to '/sdcard/zImage-recovery': Permission denied
RedBend Update Agent 6,1,14,1
FOTA : Make Block Device Nodes
lcd_init(507): fb0 open success
lcd_init(514): width = 480, height = 800
open device file: Permission denied
bmldevice_get_size: bmldevice_open failed!src: /sdcard/zImage-recovery
dst: /dev/block/bml8 partition size: 0x0
reboot: Operation not permitted
I think the problem is coming from the kernel still working to write to the phone, but the phone gets disconnected from the Mac right before it reboots (casued by the EA28 update). Therefore, the installation cannot be completed. Therefore, I can't run cwm.app to finish the install.
Is there any way to fix this?

I'm out of town this weekend, but I will be back on Monday and I can screen share with you to try and get this working. I've also been updating the scripts that check for phone connection before continuing the installation. So I finish, that alone will probably make it work.
