    -Download THIS FILE and place on the root of your SD card (storage space)
    -boot into your bootloader/fastboot mode. (Volume + Power Up, or adb reboot bootloader)
    -In CMD
    Code:
    fastboot oem unlock
    -Download THIS FILE and place in platform-tools on your PC
    -In CMD
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-3.0.2.4-crespo.img
    -Boot into Clockwork recovery (from fastboot, choose recovery)
    -From recovery: Install zip from SD card > Choose zip from SD card > select su-2.3.6.1-ef-signed.zip
    -Reboot and you now have super user.

    [warn]If you dont do this next step your custom recovery will not be sticky and you'll have to apply it every time you reboot. Not all phones have this file but if your does, you need to do this step[/warn]
    -Download root explorer from the market
    -Open and grant SU permission
    -Drive to system/etc
    -Mount as RW (upper right hand corner of screen)
    -Long press on install-recovery.sh and rename to install-recovery.sh.bak

    After doing this you'll want to boot into custom recovery from now on using the fastboot menu. If you attempt to boot from recovery using ROM Manager you'll get a black screen.

    You might want to try the http://forum.androidcentral.com/samsung-intercept/ forums. This thread your posting in (you might want to delete 1 BTW, you double posted) is the Samsung NS4G.

    Im having trouble with this. Ive downloaded both things, and I have put the zip file on my sd card. Now i have tried both ways to get fast boot to work. command prompt says:
    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7600]
    Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\Users\user 1>fastboot oem unlock
    'fastboot' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    C:\Users\user 1>

    Now am i doing something wrong? And i tried Volum up + power and nothing special just normal boot.What am i doing wrong?
    fastboot file is not in your path. on my install of android sdk adb and fastboot are in different directories. i believe fastboot is located in platform-tools folder. if not then its in tools folder where your android sdk is installed

    I am unrooted, and now want to remove the clockwork recovery, I did not have to do the rename file to make it sticky.

    Can anyone help me with that?

    and Kalex - thanks for the help, but that method only works currently on windows

    Also, there is no install-recover.sh in /system/etc

    Make sure fastboot.exe and adb.exe are both in platform-tools and make sure that location is in your path variable.

    My path variable includes this location:

    Code:
    D:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools
    Yours may vary from this. Then you can adb or fastboot from any command prompt. Just ensure that if your commands are pushing files, that the files are in the directory that you are using the command prompt from.

    All of the above coupled with a couple of different explanations (such as opening command window in sdk vs Windows) made all the difference in success. Just re=read and keep trying, this worked for me (finally)

    I cant get clockwork recovery to stick. I tried root explorer to change the file name but apparently i have one of the phones it doesnt work on. Does anyone know of any other options? Iv come to terms with having to fastboot everytime i flash but i sure miss doing it on the fly. Thanks in advance for any help.

    I didn't have the file on my phone.

    I flashed it through fastboot and then again through rom manager (twice) and now it's all kinds of sticky.

    Just wanted to add that you should be able to run this in adb shell if they don't want to use root explorer.
