I'm way too new to this for my own good...
Okay, look here's the deal. I let my brother root my phone because the way it was acting before reallyyyy pissed me off. So I figured if I let him do it, it'd work better.
It's better and faster, yes. However, when I send text messages that are more than a page long it messes up the whole text and then adds a ton of @ signs under it. The Kernel he's using is VooDoo and I read that those weren't that great for kernels. So is there anything I can do to fix this? One-Click doesn't work and a half dozen other things I've tried don't work either (they either make me think my phone is brick'd or it gets stuck on screens and I have to take the battery out).
Oh, and I'm on a Mac. So most of the information I've found is useless anyway. Look, I'm in desperate need here, guys. And I'm already taking hits from my girlfriend telling me "I told you so."
So... help? Please? I don't care if I get a new root and kernel or if it just goes back to the way it was before all this mess. I just want to be able to use my phone the way it's intended to be used.

As stated by the guys who run this site - some folks just should not root - no offense but I think you are in this camp.
Go back to your brother and ask him to get you back to stock - he can use on of the odin packages available - basically if he was able to get you rooted and on a different rom and kernel - he can get you back.
The other option is to have him get you to a stock rom and kernel that are rooted - this way you can have the predictability of the stock config with capabilities (like free wifi tether, etc) of rooting.
In the end, if you are not a tinkerer and you just want it to work - root and custom roms, kernels, radios really are not for you.
I may get flamed on this, but it is really the truth
Also, if you are already confused - trying to do this on a mac will just be even more confusing - so if your bro has a PC going back to him might be your best bet.

You need to head over to the rooting section of this forum and read about rooting. The files and programs you need to return your phone to stock and then root properly are there. You can get your phone working again, don't worry.

Basically. There are instructions in the Epic 4G Rooting/ROMs/Hacks forum in a sticky thread on how to return to stock (I would post a link but I'm mobile). Shouldn't be too different from what is needed here - just make sure to use the Fascinate tar file.
