With the help of jt1134, we managed to get clockworkmod installed and functional on a Samsung Mesmerize. This will assume you have the android SDK installed and some knowledge of how to use adb.

First off you need to have your phone rooted. This can be done with SuperOneClick. You will also need a couple of files, recovery.bin and redbend_ua, both of which are attached to this post.

You will need to install redbend_ua first extract the zip file then;
Code:
adb push path/to/redbend_ua /sdcard/redbend_ua
then you need to make it executable
Code:
adb shell
su
chmod 777 /sdcard/redbend_ua
Now you need to move it to the /system/xbin
Code:
adb shell
su
mv /sdcard/redbend_ua /system/xbin/redbend_ua
Extract the recovery.zip and then we push the recovery.bin to the sd card.

Code:
adb push path/to/recovery.bin /sdcard/recovery.bin
Finally we need to flash the recovery.bin

Code:
redbend_ua restore /sdcard/recovery.bin /dev/block/bml8
After this the only thing left to do is download Rom Manager from the market and install the clockworkmod for the Fascinate. This is working on my Mesmerize. Please leave feedback!

hey guys this worked great for me! thanks. I ran into a problem though when trying to make the redbend_ua file executable while it was on my sdcard so i moved it to the root of my phone memory using root explorer, than I ran the command
adb shell
su
chmod 777 /redbend_ua

than to move the file I used the command

adb shell
su
mv /redbend_ua /system/xbin/redbend_ua

and than follow the remaining steps that thescorpion420 has posted up, it shouldnt take more than 5 minutes for the process, I am flashing a rom to my USCC mesmerize as we speak and I will report back!
Enjoy guys
And thanks to the devs for figuring this out.

working
hey guys, I freaked out and didnt think I had made a successful backup of my rom before messing with it but I found it and I got the phone to go back to stock. So now I'm going to try a few things to see if I can get some roms to install on this thing.

Wow... Awesome news. Subbed for updates. Now to read some tutorials on how to get through the whole process... Won't be doing any flashing until I see someone confirm they got it up and running.
