THESE FILES ARE ONLY FOR THE VERIZON FASCINATE
THESE FILES HAVE NOT BEEN TESTED ON ANY OTHER SGS PHONE BY ME
THESE FILES WILL PROBABLY NOT WORK FOR YOUR PHONE IF IT IS NOT A VERIZON FASCINATE

First, download and install the samsung drivers found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=779238

Then download odin from here: https://sites.google.com/a/imnuts.ne...edirects=0&d=1

Then download the clockwork package from here: http://goo.gl/HELdr


If you have a lag fix installed, remove it. This is my opinion, and is completely optional. But i do not recommend the lag fixes, as the ones that install / work on the fascinate do nothing really, just wait for voodoo port

Then:
Put phone into download mode.
-Turn off phone
-Pull battery
-Press vol down button while plugging into computer
-Should show a yellow triangle
Open odin on pc
-Odin should show a yellow bar with a com port showing that it detects your phone
Click "PDA" button and select the CWMrecovery.tar you downloaded earlier
Click start
This will reboot your phone when complete. This flashes both the kernel and the recovery partition to enable you to flash update.zips signed with test keys. You will need to download Rom Manager from the market and select flash Clockwork Mod and select "fascinate"

To use clockwork, you can reboot recovery and Rom Manager, or cold boot into recovery (power off phone, power back on while holding both volume keys). If you cold boot into recovery you need to select apply update.zip and it will launch ClockworkMod.

Optional: ClockworkMod update.zip file (place this in your sdcard's root, and only download this if you cannot get into rom manager) http://dl.dropbox.com/u/458252/Fasci...les/update.zip

If this post has helped you, please consider reading this:
Donations! Well, i have never asked for donations, but i would like to ask that if these files or any of my work has helped you in any way, please go to world vision and donate as you see fit. All of my work has been done for me, and i release it as i know other people would like it / need it.

Follow readme.txt inside zip

Big thanks to lilinser / dkcldark; koush; humancyborg, namebrandon, geeknik, and many others that were testing and constantly flashing their phones!

And without ludeboy, well, i wouldnt even be able to get into download mode to fix my phone in the first place

I didn't pull the battery, just turned the phone off while holding the volume down button. Maybe I should have, as it is stuck on the Nandroid backup on Linux.ex2.

Edit, spoke too soon. I unplugged the USB cable, and is finished updating. Bring on the kernels! I want to see what this does clocked.

If you do a Nandroid backup with the lagifx installed it takes a LONG time

Yes, nandroid backups will take a LONG time to complete if you are using a lagfix. I would start removing the lagfix now, we have something much much better planned for you guys.

And pulling the battery isnt necessary, just insures that new people get it done right, eliminates some questions / problems.

Thanks for sharing.

I suppose I'll have to try to find out how to remove the lag fix. I can't wait for some thing better!
