    FYI I am a noob at this (as if you couldn't tell lol) I am still researching and gathering needed info and programs. I have a very slow internet connection at home. I work 7days a week right now so doing little research here and there and trying to keep track of all the info is hard for me. I need a day to study and let it all sink in. But love all the info on this site. Mad Thanks to you and others here for you time and knowledge. I need to get ready for work as I am typing this lol but will try and get on after work tonight. Maybe if your on then we can have you root my phone for me. Thanks for you Time and Support.
    Very Welcome, please feel free to ask any questions we are very noob friendly. I should be around in the evening since i work at night, im usually available(Just dont tell my boss ).

    I finally got the abs all set, but now when i click on start root, the files do not all push and the cmd screen closes very quickly. All I can make out is "Find is not recognized......." and then I cant see what else it says. Has anyone encountered this issue before?

    If one click doesn't work click through to the master thread that I linked, and go ahead and try option 2, or option 3.

    Ok I just needed to reboot the phone root is working as well as bluetooth. I have not flashed anything yet. Are these the only steps i would need to follow to get Froyo 2.2.

    To install Odin packages on your device
    1. First you will need to download and place on your sd card update.zip, download here Update.zip

    Download and install drivers on your computer HERE

    2. Next you will need a Froyo tar file which will be placed in the PDA section of odin.

    Download your flavor of Froyo Below

    Full Stock Froyo Leak+root+Froyo Clockworkmod
    EB01_DXC.tar

    Debloated/Deodexed Froyo Leak+root+Froyo Clockworkmod
    EB01DB_DXC.tar


    3.) You will need to download Odin application tool found here ODIN or ODIN mirror
    4.) If your phone is plugged into your computer, unplug it now.
    5.) If your phone is not powered down, power it down now.
    6.) Remove battery from phone.
    7.) Launch ODIN on PC.
    8.) Plug USB cable into phone.
    9.) Plug your Fascinate into the PC via USB cable.
    10.) Press and hold the volume-down key until you see a gigantic yellow triangle and your phone will be in download mode.(Please see 2nd picture in post #3)You can now release the volume key. At this point you will see a yellow com port in the upper left hand corner of the Odin applicate. .(Please see 3rd picture in post #3)

    11.) Click on the PDA button in ODIN

    Triple check that you pushed the PDA button. Do NOT click the Phone button prior to continuing to step 13. If you choose Phone, you will have bought your Fascinate a one-way ticket to hell.

    12.) Choose the .tar.md5 file you downloaded in step 2 above & click the Start button.(this should take approx 3 to 6mins)
    13.) Phone will power down when finished.
    14.) Remove USB cable.
    15.) Reinsert battery.
    16.) Power phone and wait to boot approx 4mins

    Also would I need to backup data and then wipe before this initial process.
    THANKS

    If you're not a registered member over at XDA I don't think you can download. Lemme see if I can find a mirror.

    Edit: Got it. Happy flashing.

    Your ROM flashing is instruction is SO MUCH EASIER to understand then the "walk through" from XDA. Thank you so much. I was getting sick of the 2.1. Just updated to 2.2.

    Well I hate to say it, but I've tried everything and looked everywhere (including searches) for an answer to my issue; but when I try 1 click root, I keep getting Error: Device Offline. I've reinstalled all my drivers for the phone, and rebooted it as well. any ideas on how to fix it?

    All you've tried so far is 1 click root right?

    Do you have USB Debugging turned on? Does your computer see the phone properly? Have you installed the Samsung drivers on your pc yet?

    yes, that is all I've tried so far, I've gotten everything to work up until it goes to actually root the phone. It looks like adb sees my device fine, but it appears offline, is there any way to fix that, or would trying a different method be simpler?

    here is a screenshot of what I see:



    edit: wow you guys are fast responding, I really appreciate that.
