Please Note:I do not have a Verizon Fascinate!!!! The closest thing I have is a Telus Fascinate 4G, which is essentially a Galaxy S 4G. However, this ROM has been built for (and tested on) a Verizon Fascinate.

Installation Instructions - Thanks Ophidian_DarkCore!

Gingerbread bootloader is required, you must have previously been on cm11 before using this rom, otherwise go to one of the cm11 threads and follow the 'from stock' instructions.

  • 1. Read "Things to take note of" below
  • 2. Wipe system, data, and cache paritions (just in case)
  • 3. Install zip
  • 4. If you want root (SuperSU) or Gapps, install them now (or later, if you so desire)

The first boot can take several minutes. Be patient. If it takes 10+ minutes, pull the battery and reboot to recovery.

Things to Take Note Of
  • The RIL (aka data, SMS, calls, etc) is NON-FUNCTIONAL.
  • Humberos (the i9000 maintainer) has moved on to different projects which means no first-gen Galaxy S devices are being actively maintained. Builds may break at any time!
  • Selinux is currently in permissive mode. I'm not sure whether or not it can be switched to enforcing without breaking things
  • The USB connection is MTP and not mass storage as Omni has removed mass storage. Unfortunately, it sometimes is super-duper slow. In recovery there is still an option to mount as mass storage device.
  • Live wallpapers are not present as this definitely qualifies as a low-ram device...
  • Tv-out support is not present. It was removed upstream and I don't want to bother adding it back in.
  • This build is very close to the official omni source code. This means that the recovery is TWRP and there aren't any added "features"
    In order to get it rooted, you need to install SuperSu.
  • Gapps slow down the i9000 and Galaxy S 4G significantly so tread carefully.
  • Backup Backup Backup! I'm not responsible for you losing any data.

Working
  • It boots!
  • Wi-Fi
  • Seriously, I'm not exactly sure what else works. I suspect that most other functions including Bluetooth and auto-brightness work but I'm not sure
What doesn't
  • RIL, cause I removed it...
  • Some of the soft keys (possibly fixed in latest build)
  • You tell me...

Everything else is not tested!!!

Thanks Time!
This would not have been possible without the following people:

Thanks to humberos for bringing Lollipop to the first-gen Galaxy S series. This would not have been possible without his work.
Thanks to Ophidian_DarkCore for being the primary tester and prompting me to work on this project.
Thanks to hhp_211 for doing some testing and offering to send me a Fascinate.
Thanks to all others that have helped get this phone to where it is today!
Thanks to vcmerritt. A name you're probably not familiar with, but he was the only one to create something for the T959P (my phone) and without him I'd still be on stock...


Build your own!
Follow the instructions at http://docs.omnirom.org/Setting_Up_A...le_Environment using the android-5.1 branch
Before doing a repo sync, put the galaxy_s_series.xml file from the Downloads folder in .repo/local_manifests folder of the source tree.
After syncing the source, open a terminal and in the directory where you downloaded the source code type "source ./build/envsetup.sh" and then "brunch fascinatemtd"

OK, Only worked from the odin cwm.

I tried flashing and while I got*cwm 6.0.5.1 and/or twrp,,, It looked like it installed cm11 and/or omni,,, but nothing ever booted, always looped back to recovery.


1st impressions are wow!!
looks good and kernel has OC
and a few nice features.

Good work on all involved!


Installed beta SuperSU-2.49

Gonna test with 200/1400, interactive(tweaked), deadline-1024, KSM-off, standard LMK. for now*

Stable so far.

I'll test changing vm heapsize and LMK values

Also trying omni switch, but probably go back to asop recents as its using a lot of mem

oh and I'll check Big Mem settings too.


So far no gapps installed yet but loaded up subway surfer and candy crush,,, both had significant lag before,,, on cm 11, du, slim before,,, but are running fantastic so far on omni !


Later:
Gapps : I went very minimal install package,
Yes performance still takes a hit and I've also noticed some random reboots too.
I'd like to go back and try again without a gapps to make sure/verify, but i don't remember any reboots without gapps.


As a side note,, I wish some one could build a modified base play services that didn't have all the extra services stuff like,,, in car, fit, nfc, weareable, etc.
I always disable that stuff even on my other/main phones.

i juse disableservice and autostarts for that stuff.
my experience has been this rom idles for several days and no crashes. i guess oc's but a last_kmsg would be nice. then have a logcat gathering while you try to recreate the crash. or gtfo?
i was surprised to have 1400. i could never get hummingbirdover 1300 on gb, and i overvolted the piss out of it. even my other hummingbird(sammy aviator).
EDIT: "interactive(tweaked)" hispeed_freq?
edit edit: ksm is optimized in this kernel, and row is best for our flash until fiops is added.

Meanwhile, I'm gonna be jamming out on one of my test builds(24 bit audio anyone?) I figured out gcc 4.8. all i'm gonna say for now is it's a user build, debugging all disabled in the kernel, fiops is proposed, telephony all removed, art is set to fully optimize. a bunch of awesome sauce that I'm not gonna tell about just yet

OC is very phone specific. An OC that works on my phone may not work on your phone. That's one of the reasons the clock speed is normally only 1Ghz - all devices can support it. Some will definitely support higher (there were rumors of people going up to 1.8Ghz a few years back...). For me, 1.2Ghz is stable, 1.4Ghz often crashes.
If the phone isn't waking with an OC, you've pushed it too far. Try a lower OC.

The only way I can do new releases is if somebody sends me bug reports. Since I don't have a fascinate, I can't see what problems will appear. Anything I find out that is wrong on my device (essentially a Galaxy S 4G) that is common with the Fascinate will come to the Fascinate but I haven't found anything like that since I put up the last build.
