Rooting stock 2.2 Fascinate from Heimdall (on a mac)?

Does anyone know a simple process for rooting stock 2.2 on the Fascinate via Heimdall? Most of the discussions of this process I've found are about using Odin instead. I'm on a mac, so Heimdall is preferable to me, but I know it uses different kinds of files than the ones packaged for Odin.

My goal is to root the phone so I can install Rom Manager and use that to take care of all my flashing needs instead of having to do things manually. But rooting this phone seems about as complicated as flashing a new rom anyway...

Thanks!

Thanks for the warning – I downloaded Rom Manager and had it install CWM 3.0.0.8, but I haven't tried to do anything with it yet.

If I want to get CM7 or jt1134's vanilla Gingerbread build on my phone, can I use this recovery to do it? Or do I need to be on a different version? I've seen references to both 2.5.x and 4.x out there, and have no idea which recovery is needed for those ROMs.

Thanks again!
