Thank you so much for the thread! This is really noob-proof! I've only worked with HTC phones and my boss gave me his Samsung Fascinate to fix due to a botched factory restore... This helped me get the job done and now it works perfectly! Thank you again!

You cant three finger into recovery once your on a ICS rom...you must use the recovery option from the power menu.

It's the same rom as the one on the nexus, so any screens/videos you find should apply. Steve got the fascinate added to gummy source, so we'll have new source-built gummy roms soon and should get the updates along with all the other supported devices.

Also, WHY IS THIS GUIDE NOT STICKIED HERE?! It seems like the only time we get a mod in here is when enyo rears his head..

check rootzwiki...the links in this guide are for the fascinate. the guide instructions work the same but flashing anything fascinate related on your mez may break data.

@Droidstyle:

Just wanted to express my gratitude again for your efforts in setting up this thread and keeping it current. I used section 4 to go from GW 2.x to AOKP M4, followed the instructions exactly, and am profiting greatly.

While I was not surprised that your instructions were right on, going through the process again reminded me of how lost many of us would be without this guide.

Awesome guide Droidstyle. Rooted my wife's Fassy with no problem.

One question though. I can't seem to make a backup using recovery. Keep getting an "Error backing up boot image". Running Superclean, did not install a kernel. CWM 3.0.2. Any ideas?
