This is going to be simply a collection of links with important points...Please read ALL directions and comments carefully...as no one is responsible for any damage to your phone.

NOTE 1: IF YOU ARE UNROOTED AND ALREADY UPDATED WITH OTA, YOU CAN STILL USE THE PROCESSES BELOW TO ROOT AND FLASH RECOVERY.

>> Rooting Samsung Fascinate

>> Flashing Clockwork Recovery


NOTE 2: IF YOU ARE ROOTED AND WANT TO KEEP ROOT, DO NOT INSTALL VERIZON OTA UPDATE. WAIT FOR DEVELOPERS TO POST A ROOTED UPDATE.


If something went wrong and you did not have recovery installed, use Odin to restore system to stock >> Odin Restore files to get you to stock

If something went wrong, but you are still able to get into clockwork recovery >> Stock Nandroid Image


NOTE 3: IF YOU ARE ROOTED, HAVE LAGFIX AND APPS REMOVED, DO NOT INSTALL VERIZON OTA UPDATE. YOU WILL RUN INTO ISSUES. YOU NEED TO COMPLETELY GO BACK TO STOCK, THEN UPDATE. YOU WILL LOSE ROOT.


If you want to stop the OTA update notification, use this file which provides simple edits...but be careful as it may make further updates more difficult >> SCH-I500.DI01 Update


UPDATED:
OTA Update with Root and Busybox >> DH12 to DI01 update with root and busybox


Please post corrections and I will update the OP...I see too many people messing up their devices. Just want to help.

My path.

1) Stock with root mentioned in this dev section

2)restored CW backup

3)used CW to install the update mentioned in this thread.

No problems so far.

After reading this thread again I went to stock and stock kernel. Rooted and gold again.

I think that CPU Scale app causes the Fascinate to shut down, so if you use it and getting them.... remove the app or let me know if you fixed.

Thanks!!!

Now, here is something I didn't try yet. I am still stock (not rooted), ran the OTA...and with all people having issues, I am scared to root. I want to try but I think I will wait and see if anyone else does this.

If you don't care about root and want to install the OTA update manually >> SCH-I500.DI01 Update

I thought the post about doing the OTA manually would allow you to keep root, seeing that it's a stripped down version.

Let me clarify that. If that's the case, I can update the OP.

Guys, pay attention to that update file. It is only updating modem.bin, and then updating your version number so you don't get nagged for an update. There are many more patches/updates in this fix than just modem.bin, and by doing only modem.bin you make it a bit more difficult on yourself to update down the road.

If that's all you want, go ahead and use it, but in no way did JT intend for this to get distributed as "this is what you should use if you have root" update.

Read before using, that's all I ask.
