Thank you for these very clear instructions. Let me preface these remarks by saying that I am a complete newbie which is probably pretty apparent.
I was able to successfully get through posts 1 through 3 in my attempt to install CWM ALL through Odin. However, when attempting to get into the red recovery mode, everything remains blue. Any ideas one what I am doing wrong?
Thank you for your help!

Wow, thank you for that very quick reply. Yes, i believe it was a success. I know that it read "pass" and turned my phone off. I did not go into recovery mode straight from there, though. I wanted to first copy those two files you mentioned to my sd card.
Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out!

Root and 2.2 questions
Hi everyone. I hv had my fascinate quite some time, and i m not very happy with the lag problem. I m currently on android 2.1 system. I am not an expert with electronics. I attempted to root my phone before, but never know if it ever worked or not. I am thinking to upgrade it to android 2.2 system. Hoping to get some info of the process, since i might already have rooted my phone, how can i confirm it? Then, wts the steps of upgrading froyo? Any help wud be appreciated! Thanks a lot!

first off, chances are if you rooted your Fascinate through androidcentral you would have froyo. so your prolly not rooted...read through this http://forum.androidcentral.com/veri...k-through.html . Then you should be more clear on things

personaly i would root to the EB01 system. the EC01 has parts of EB16 which gave me a run for my money,not stable by any means.
the Voodoo SC 292 franken v has done more for my phne than the EC01 did.
of course we each know that all of these fascinates all act differently to the different ROMs...the Ultimate choice is yours of course but on fassy..that EC01 got real squirmy on my ph by day 2.. had to start at stock and work my way back up,, if you are interested in rooting follows DroidX's instructions about useing Odin then CWM (ClockWorkMod)
as further reference DroidX informed several of us that the SC 116 EC01 etc has proved to be unstable... just a thought.. we each have our own minds..

You need to wait, when I had done mine the other day I had the same problem then decided to just sit it out and wait and what do you know, it ended up saying complete a while later.. Each phone seems to root at different speeds in your case it may just take longer than others... My advice is just wait it out and it should complete. I once saw a thead saying it can take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour depending on how your phone and computer act together. That's technology for you! Hope this helps you and gets the job done! Cheers!

Personally I am not 100% positive if it is, but I do know that it is very strongly recommended that you use the USB cable the phone came with. And that alone is enough for me not to take a chance by using a different cable. But in the back of my mind I would have to believe that as long as the cable you are using is in great shape and is visibly identical to the one provided with the phone then I don't think you could go wrong. But what can I say that's the pros and cons talking lol. Hopefully someone can give you a 100% accurate answer, but I figured I'd throw in my two cents.
