    do not use su + busybox file in post #2 by killahamsammich. if you uses it,u will lose 3g and wifi. i usually called verizon wireless to reset my keys in order to get 3g sign back, but even with that mathod, 3g didnt worked.

    Go back and start reading from the first post in this thread for detailed instructions on how to root your Fascinate. All of the links there are still good, except for the link to the SU file. Or use the step by step instructions in post#2 in this thread (the links are outdated now though): Help needed to Root Fascinate w Froyo

    Sorry for repeating what is already listed here and other places, but it seems like things are all over the place, with so many folks moving on from the Fascinate. But with the GB release, there seems to be a renewed interest in this device...hopefully this provides an updated post for everything needed to root the Fascinate all in one place. PLEASE correct me if I have led anyone astray with bad links or files. I checked them myself and they all work for me. The last thing I want to do is offer bad info.

    SU file can be found here: su-2.3.6.1.x.zip

    CWM file can be found here: http://www.mediafire.com/?6x5utoca59et7o9

    ODIN can be found here: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    I am not taking any credit whatsoever for any of this. Just trying to help, as I've been helped by so many folks on this site. Maybe I've made things worse by adding more clutter, IDK.

    My old Fascinate was murdered (RIP, my beloved device) and I got a refurbished one through my insurance. As soon as I turned it on I got the Gingerbread OTA update from Verizon. (Damn you, Verizon. I wait forever for the official update and you decide to push it at a time it causes me problems.)

    I'm trying to root the device and have run into a problem. When I am in the proper directory and run the adb device command, it displays my device as 37319BA23DEE00EC. I didn't think this would be a problem but I guess it is. So I tried using ODIN and CWM to install busybox and this didn't work either. I'm know not rooted because I can't use titanium backup. I have tried each method several times with different variables (battery in , battery out, ect., ect.). Yes, the device drivers and installed properly. Yes, USB debugging mode is on. Yes, I have the right files. Yes, I have disabled all anti-virus programs while trying this. Yes, I have an original USB cable. No, I am not an *****.
    I am running kernel version 2.6.35.7 firmware version 2.3.5 Baseband version S:i500.04 V.EH03 Build number SCH-I500.EH03.

    Rooted using the file specified by lpt2569, and everything works fine but my wireless won't connect. It sees my network, remembers my password, starts to connect then says disconnected before it ever acquires the IP address. Everything else seems to work just fine. Any ideas?

    Here's a step by step walk through I found on XDA that has the files you need from Mediafire. Check out section 5 of this thread.

    He's absolutely correct. This is the ultimate, up to date guide for rooting the Fascinate. I've also written up a glossary that some may find useful when first learning about rooting.

    For step "4" I'm not seeing a "roms" folder! Please help a brother out. Sorry If I wasn't suppose to post directly on the post! I'll do more research but if anyone can lend some time to help me that would be greatley appricated. I'm a noob. If someone can just make sure I have all the files needed... I have a samsung galaxyS the first one which I think we're calling it the fascinate through verizon! Thank you to whoever can help me! If someone can I'll repay them somehow!

    You aren't booting it up, you are going into download mode which it will do with the usb plugged in

    I'm new to rooting and the android world. I have a fascinate running 2.3.5. I can't stand Bing and the b.s. apps that are on it. I've been trying to use Odin 3 v1.83 and when I go to plug in the phone and start it up in download mode after powering it off and holding the volume down button as I plug it into the USB port, Odin will not detect it . The yellow triangle will come up on the phone, etc. Odin will detect it when not in download mode but not in download mode. What could be the issue? Are my drivers not working properly?(I did download the Samsung drivers.) I seen a newer version of Odin but I can't get it to open properly. Do I need it? HELP PLEASE!!!!!

    Any chance of getting all the links fixed so one could actually root their Fascinate? Is there another site where I can get the all the appropriate files etc.?

    Hate to tell you, but the root files are probably no longer available unless you can find whoever made them originally. Aftermarket support for a small market phone usually lasts for about a year, longer if you're lucky. I don't have any of these files, and the dead links are because the people who were good enough to use their hosting space have abandoned them. Also, if you're going to try and use a thread, make sure it's a thread that's not abandoned.
