    Getting to Cyanogen 7 is actually quite simple. Just follow the instructions in jt1134's thread here:
    [NIGHTLY] [ROM][GRJ90] CyanogenMod 7 for Samsung Fascinate (fascinatemtd) - xda-developers

    Except don't use the gapps (Google Apps) from that thread, use these:
    gapps_update-2.3.5-gb-20110725-signed.zip

    You will need to have a rooted device before you flash CM7, so follow the steps in post #5 of DroidXcon's thread here:
    http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...ing-forum.html

    After you root, boot up the phone and confirm the root took. If you don't already have it, download Android Terminal Emulator from the market. Open terminal emulator and you will see a cursor in the upper left corner next to a $, type su and hit the enter key. If root took you will see a pop up asking for superusuer permission, click OK. That confirms you are rooted. Shut down the phone, ODIN the CWM from jt1134's thread, close ODIN, pull USB cord, put battery back in phone, use the three button method to boot directly to CWM, flash the CM7 zip file, then the gapps zip file. Your phone may reboot on it's own after flashing the CM7 file. Don't worry about that. Just go through the set up, the long press the power menu, choose reboot, choose recovery, and flash the gapps package from CWM. Done.

    How did you get to recovery? If you didn't long press the power menu, choose reboot, then choose recovery, you are in the wrong recovery (CWM)

    I shut down using power. Then did the 3 finger recovery.

    Once you flashed CM7 you can't do three finger recovery into CWM. You have to get to recovery by a) long press of power button to bring up the menu, choose reboot, which will bring up a smaller sub menu, choose recovery; b) open terminal emulator and type su hit the enter key then type reboot recovery and hit the enter key; or c) connecting phone to computer with usb cord, opening adb (if you have it) and doing an adb reboot. Obviously option a is generally the best choice for most people.

    I selected option a)

    It took me to CWM v.4.0.1.0

    Once there I am unable to select any of the options. It allows me to scroll up and down but when I try to pick one it just takes the cursor back to the top.

    Should I try to reinstall cwm?

    Are you using the power button to make your selection? With CWM 3 + you use the power button to make your selection.
