    I will simply link to two posts which have directions on how to achieve permanent root in the meantime while custom kernels are released with root incorporated.

    xda-developers - View Single Post - rooting

    And this one is for the epic 4g, but it is confirmed that same instructions work on fascinate.

    joeykrim-SDX - Permanent Root for Epic (and Verizon Fascinate) - Confirmed

    Edit: I have not tested this yet, as my delivery is scheduled for tomorrow.

    you should contact the authors of those posts to see if he/she would let you post them on here.. then you wont have to rely on their links if their servers go down.

    just a suggestion :)

    Thank you thank you thank you. That was the easiest root ever. Took me less than 5 minutes.

    after:
    - chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    - ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin

    my cmd prompt just says "adb connection will be reset. restart adb server on desktop and re-login."
    what am i supposed to do here?

    Just wait for it to kick back to the default windows prompt "C:\"

    Got mine today and rooted as soon as I got home, now to wait for CM6.

    I got an icon called "Superuser Permissions."
    I clicked on it, opened cmd, and cd'd the SDK tools folder and typed:
    -adb shell
    -su

    then it got a thing called "Unknown (uid:2000)" and when i click on it, it says:

    Package: unknown
    Requested UID: root (0)
    Command: /system/bin/sh
    Status: Allow

    DOES THIS MEAN MY PHONE IS ROOTED?!

    or did I still do something wrong? :(

    Help

    I am totally lost here.
    Could you list step by step-like hook up phone, open command, etc...
    everytime I enter something in the command - I get nothing

    I want to root this phone, or I am taking it back. Somebody please help.

    I can't believe it, I just went through the RootzWiki root instructions and it worked, but once I rebooted I lost root, what gives?

    adb

    I should have been more clearer. I don't understand adb push, adb shell, and all of the other stuff. Am I copying and placing files to the sd card? I am new at this and really could use the dummy version. I wish somebody would make a youtube video.

    For those of you worried about rooting or are very new to this whole process I will write up a walk through for newbies when I get home from work today if nobody has done it already.

When im in my command promtp I can run the adb command to find my device which it does. once i get to the "adb push" command, the get the message "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command, etc..." any ideas??
