    Help with rooting!!!!!!!

    Hey guys new to the site... need some massive help with rooting my phone. I have a Samsung Fascinate and the phone just won't connect to a computer. I've been reading up on how to root the phone and have even tried a couple different things but no matter what I do the computer will not recognize the device. It will charge the phone though so I know the usb connections work. I've tried different comps... different usb updates and downloads... is there a program that I can simply download to the phone itself and run? I think right now that may be my only option unless someone else can figure something out for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!! Also please try to keep the technical stuff down as I am a complete noob when it comes to stuff like this lol. Let me know what to do... I really wanna root this thing so I can get rid of a bunch of useless stuff and overclock it.

    First of all, do you have the proper USB Drivers? You're asking for help but you haven't posted any info, IE, error messages, programs your using, OS, ETC.
    You can do the all in one ODIN that will Root and put Froyo (2.2) on your phone but it sounds to me like you need to read, read, read. Get familiar with the terms and technology.

    Have you tried logging onto the Samsung site and downloading the Kies software? It should download all necessary drivers for you if you have the software and then plug in your phone.

    Kies does not work with the Fascinate.

    I think his problem is that he can't do it because his computer doesn't recognize the phone. If the kies software still doesn't work try using a different computer. Some computers do better than others and a lot will install the drivers automatically.

    I think ODIN uses a different driver than the Samsung Windows driver. I had a problem with USB not detecting the SD Card in Windows (Error with USB Device) and when I pulled the battery, held down the volume button while connected via USB to Odin, it detected it and I was able to flash a .TAR file
