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.net/android/update-to-dj05/Odin.zip?attredirects=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/Fascinate Files/update.zip

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.

anyone having issues with navigating the recovery here's how it works:

Stock recovery:
Select - Home Softkey
Blank Screen - Menu Softkey

Clockwork mod:
Select - Back Softkey or power button
Blank Screen - Home Softkey
Back - Search Softkey


For Mac / Linux users:

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.:eek:

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

edit: I have done all of my odin work with the battery in and have had 0 problems

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.

So I have a question....may be a dumb one....but why is it called Odin? Is that Samsung specific? The reason I ask is Odin was a code name for the 9550 storm and so it confuses me. Thanks and sorry for off topic. :eek:

success

it worked perfectly as described...

i removed lagfix first

ran ROM Manager (premium :) i flashed CWM twice, just to be sure...

i backed it up in ROM Manager.. when i rebooted to recovery from RM i got an MD5 checksum error when trying to restore..

I then ran a backup while in recovery.. during that backup i got no /sdcard/.android_secure found but it seemed to complete.

I used restore created from nandroid and it completed error free. (tho it did take a while, even with no lagfix (lots of data, apparently))

My phone booted just fine afterwards.... but it did sit for a while at the VZW splash screen. it made be nervous.. but i was patient :)

THANK YOU!

EDIT: In RM... i renamed the backup that i made in CMR and then chose to restore... it booted into CMR as expected and started restoring... completed successfully.

when it completes booting... i get a system alarm tone that doesnt go away until i use the notification pulldown... it did after both times i used the recovery.

    I also have the same issue, i wonder if you have to launch from rom manager every time?

    I can do it with a cold boot, just have to hit apply update.zip then it goes straight to clockwork.

    You can get the update.zip from ROM Manager.



    not finding this option in rom manager.

    Also the dropbox link is broken and the only link not mirrored now.

    Tried scouring the net everywhere and cannot find a solution to my issue either:

    I have a rooted Fascinate, I flash CWM through odin twice, boot up and go to rom manager click flash cw recovery and nothing. No choice for fascinate.

    I read that I may have to do this manually with the cw update.zip and this is now wher im stuck with no update.zip... =-/

    Here is the clockwork package I just used. I can't say for sure if it's as up to date as the OP's link but it worked fine.
