    Glad to help. You'll probably want to flash something else before too terribly long, but this just teaches you how to flash things mostly :-) and gets you froyo of course.

    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!

    K, hang in there. Once you get rooted just buy titanium backup or my backup pro and you can do pretty much whatever you want except unplug mid flash.

    Default 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..

    The themes didn't stick you on US Cellular. the EB16 and EC10 builds are from the Samsung Mesmerize for US Cellular. It has the same exact model number as our Fascinate - SCH-I500, so they have a lot in common. Since Adrynalyne used parts of EB01, EB16, and EC10 to make the current version of Superclean, there are bits of US Cellular code in it. That is why you may see US Cellular on your browser, or in the signature in your emails and/or texts. Your phone is still on the Verizon network. It's just those little bits and pieces have leaked over to your phone and are showing up where you see them. Not everyone is experiencing this, so if you want to, you can flash the 2.9.2 file again, and perhaps those little bugs and quirks will disappear.

    And you probably won't end up with the same exact look you see in the screenshots in gunnermike's theme threads. Those are just showing what the theme looks like on his setup. The notification bar, long press power menu, quick panel, dialer, and anything else that is themed will look the same, but everything else will look different based on what else you have on your phone.

    I just tried to root my phone again, it did not work. I was stuck at the step that "clicking START ROOT file, and push the button." After that, my phone restart, but the black window on my PC never says complete. What is going on? Any advice?

    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!

    Follow the on screen intsructions for best results. I'm primarily thinking of the unlock you phone after it reboots one. That caused me a couple failures.

    one more question, is the OEM usb cable a MUST for the rooting process? Becoz I dun hv the cable with me.

    Default

    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.
