This works??? I'm assuming it do since you posted it. God damn, thank you so much. Really. I have so many I use on a regular basis that I couldn't use because I couldn't get root.

In total since yesterday I've reset my phone 7 times from trying different things.
Will those phone boot on this kernel? and is their any advantages over the stock kernel?

Do you know a good, fool proof method I can rip this rom for others?

Thanks Again.

Hey

This is just showing you that how to root. and the stock kernel has nothing its just original kernel.

From my understanding, other sgs and telus fascinate has diffrent bootloader system. And also to create Custom Rom, we need source, but we dont right now. We have to w8 for it.

Thanks,

Default Confimed! Works.

Just to confirm for others this works perfect for rooting the 2.3.3 GB stock update for Telus Fascinate. I didn't try booting while I had the speedmod kernel flashed. Happy with root right now.

if you have root, would you mind dumping the firmware? since the telus fascinate is (mostly) a rebranded tmobile vibrant, I'd like to be able to have someone look at the firmware blobs for GPS for use with CM. Can't find an ODIN-able package to tear apart anywhere (haven't looked in a day or so though).

Total n00b question, but what do I need to set in Odin to use these files - unchecking repartition and reboot is straightforward - but where do I set up the TAR for the kernel (In the past I have use SGS kernel flasher - but that needs root - hence my predicament LOL).

All help, advice, and fu appreciated.

Click on the PDA box in Odin and choose Speedmod Kernel. Uncheck those boxes on the left and then put your phone in download mode.

Click start and pray.

The rest of the directions are pretty straight forward. Follow those same principals for dumping the stock kernel back on the phone.

Great - and sorry, how do I get the phone in download mode (read another odin how to, it says a box will turn yellow which happens with just the down vol while connecting the USB).

Power the phone off.. Have your usb cable on hand.

Plug the phone in, press vol down + power on. You'll know immediately if it worked. Took me a few tries to figure it out.
