My wife has a Fascinate and is tired of the stock OS and glitchy UI. I told her I would root it and load a custom ROM on it. I have a D2 and have rooted and ROM'd is so I am familiar with the basics. I have never looked into doing this with the Fascinate so I wanted to make sure that I am using the latest (and easiest) root method and also the most stable ROM possible. I don't want the new ROM to give her more trouble than the stock one is.
So...I found this guide to rooting: Newbie Guide to Rooting the Fascinate.
Is this the latest and greatest method or has something simpler been developed?
2nd - I'd like to get some feed back on ROMs. I need something that will work well for her without to much of a headache for me. I don't want to have to troubleshoot it all the time. She syncs multiple gmail accounts and some pop accounts, surfs the web, facebook, g+ and google voice. I need those things to work well so I don't have to hear about it all the time.
Any help would be appreciated!
