    I had the same problem finding working links. If you read my previous post theres a link from xda forums which had updated links when i bricked my phone. I would check the sticky posts on xda listed under your phone...they seem to be current. Good luck

    Read a forum that said I can odin my phone back to stock to get it back up and running, however literally every single link I've clicked to download odin and the rom have been 404ing.

    Can we have some up to date working links???

    thanks!! it will be greatly appreciated

    First, if you have clockworkmod on your phone and have the update.zip on your sd card for cwm go ahead and pull the battery. Press the vol up and down keys and power the phone back up. This that you see should be stock sf (samsung fascinate) recovery. Select the apply update.zip and that will take you into cwm. From here, you can apply your restore.

    If you cannot get into cwm, continue.

    Pull the battery out, and connect your phone to your computer. Grab the restore files from here: odin restore files to get you to stock - xda-developers and follow the steps to restore your phone with odin. Be sure not to flash it with the phone option, use pda.

    Once you are done with that, you will need to re-download and install the superuser.apk that should be on the market. Check to make sure it will still ask you for su permissions (so grab root explorer to test).

    Mount your phone to your computer, and grab the update.zip file from here: clockworkmod installation how to for windows / *nix - xda-developers and drop it onto the root of your sd card, and follow the steps above to re-flash your restore.

    And if worst comes to worst, as long as you can get the odin stock restore to flash successfully, you can re-root, and re-flash cwm to get back to at least having a working phone.

    If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread so we can all try to help eachother out.
    hi,

    i am one of those who bricked my phone. I am not in a major panic or anything but i would like to get it figured out.

    I have samsung facinate, i upgraded to the new froyo using stock device options. I then rooted the phone using the adb and my laptop.

    All that works fine, no issues there.

    I started getting confused with the rom manager from marketplace and clockwork. I downloaded the free version of rom manager then used the option to flash clockwork in the rom manager within the phone.

    Basically, i could not find a clear understanding on how to get clockwork working correctly.

    So i saw another way which i felt more comfortable using this clockworkmod installation how to for windows / *nix - xda-developers

    unfortunately i run into broken links on that site it seems on any helpful page. I googled and found the cwmrecovery.tar file. I am positive it is the correct file. I then used odinn 1.3 and put my phone in download mode with the big yellow triangle and a guy shoveling something.

    I used pda and clicked start. Everything looked good, passed etc. My phone rebooted and it flashes samsung white letters like it always does when first booting, but this happens twice then it goes straight to recovery with options to reboot system now, apply sdcard: Update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition.

    I have tried all options and they all just reboot blinking samsung in white letters then goes back to recovery.

    I have tried following instructions to reset stock by using odin but i get invalid md5 hash.

    I am not sure what i should do, i like toying around with this stuff so if someone could point me in the right direction with current information and maybe links to stuff that has valid links in it that would be super helpful.

    I can get to recovery, i can get to download mode, and i have adb installed.

    Any questions or ideas are much appreciated.

    Nate-

    people never use rom manager on the fascinate.....it has many issues with compadbilty

    Hi, I'm new to the forums so please forgive any breaches in etiquette. My fascinate was acting funny so I was going to take it back to stock with Odin. I didn't realize that I had a hardware problem with my usb port. While I was in the middle of loading ed05 my connection broke leaving my phone seemingly bricked. I can get it into download mode but my computer doesn't recognize the phone so that I can re-connect to Odin. I probably know the answe but any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    I have a Verizon Samsung Fascinate. I tried to do the over-the-air update to 2.3. My phone got stuck on the Samsung screen. Then, after pulling the batter, it would start into manual mode with a whole sting of error codes. Verizon could not fix it without sending me a new one. I can't live that long without my phone because of my business. Anyway, thanks to this thread, and these below, I was able to restore to stock ROM, and then re-update. I did lose all of my data, but it was alread backed-up, but at least I have a working phone again!

    Odin Restore files to get you to stock - xda-developers Links do not work, but instructions are good.

    *OFFICIAL* DL09.tar.md5 - xda-developers Stock Rom downloaded from here.

    [PROGRAM] Odin 1.82 with pit files. - xda-developers Odin files from here.

    total noob

    So I read briefly some instructions on how to get this fascinate upgraded to ICS, followed the instructions for Cyanogenmod's version up to the point where I got an error stating "signature verification failed" in which I searched for a resolution on various forums where I was instructed to roll the OS back to v2.1 because 2.3 and 2.2 verified the MD5 before allowing a flash. I both checked the update.zip file and the MD5 matched so I attempted to roll the version back to 2.1. I found that Odin was the easiest way to do this so I downloaded Odin v1.0 not knowing that it had a built in ATT rom pack. I have no idea what to do now that my Verizon phone now boots up as an "AT&T World Phone" logo and all. I cannot boot into the manual loader nor the downloading mode, all that happens is a constant power cycle of the AT&T boot load logo. I have the drivers for samsung fascinate installed and my XP computer does not load the USB device when I plug the microUSB cord in. Can anyone assist me in recovering this phone or am I left with a paperweight?

    Thanks for your time and attention.

    I partially resolved this by swapping out hardware components from another phone with a broken screen. lol Couldn't find any other fix.

    If you flashed an at&t rom pack, you might have fried the modem being any phone on at&t uses gsm, when I had my fascinate if u did this you can get it back to a vzw stock but basically was doomed
