I have tried it two different ways in Rom manager (direct install and booting into recovery) If i hold the vol keys and power, unless i apply the update, it wont go to clockwork. It is actually on the stock recovery. Anyway, I just can't figure out how to install anything on this phone from the sd card. I get to the install screen, it finds and opens the packages, but the freezes on the install. I'm terribly annoyed as it is with this phone. I used google all the time, now I'm using a quick search app. ADW launcher the drawer disappears randomly, and I just don't like launcher. So anyway, I can't install anything from sd, so therefore I can't get google search working or setcpu, and cant flash a diff ROM. I must be doing something wrong. Please help!!!
ClockWorks on the Fascinate does not overwrite the stock recovery.
In order to get into CWM, you must run update.zip *every* time you want to get into CWM. This is not likely to change any time soon.
Once in CWM, the back key is the "select" key and the volume up/down are the up/down keys.
First thing is first: i you have rooted, boot into stock recovery, apply update.zip to get into CWM recovery and backup your device
[It's a phone...with some ROM, a kernel, and a modem installed. They change frequently, and I'm sick of updating my sig. But it's all really cool...n' stuff.]
