    I have a few questions. I just recently rooted my fascinate, with the stock bloated rom. I've deleted most of the bloatware that came with it. I am running EB01 and I was wondering if there were any other kernals availible besides Voodoo? I tried Voodoo and it did not make any difference to my phone. I was also wondering what the difference was between the stock rom and something like the Superclean rom? I'm running the stock recovery, I think its 2e or something. I can access CWM using the update.zip method. What are my options right now?

    As far as kernels go, no, besides Voodoo and the stock kernel there is nothing else you can do right now

    Stock bloated is just that: stock, all bloatware intacted, slow, odexed and unable to be themed
    SuperClean is: deodexed and therefore able to be themed, bloatware removed, TouchWiz removed(aside from a couple apps/widgets), very quick in comparison obviously.....I def suggest you try it out

    Rooting a Facinate

    Is there anyone out there that can help me root my phone? I've read several threads and I'm so confused! I've downloaded stuff I have no idea what it is. I wish I knew someone that could just do it for me but I don't. I have a Windows Vista and some of the threads are for Windows 7. Please HELP!!!

    Thanks TAPOUT for helping me root my fascinate last night. I have a couple of whats next questions.

    1: Superclean 2.4 is a "rom", not a mod, right? Is that the same as a kernel?

    2: I have seen CyanogenMod referred to as both mod and rom. I don't want to replace Superclean because everything is going so well. Any suggestions for cool modifications and staying in superclean?

    3: After rooting, I still have not flashed the update.zip fil. Should I have? Or is that only if I need to revover using clockwork?

    1. Yes
    2. I suggest theming the Rom....Transparent Myst v8 is the way to go http://www.droidforums.net/forum/sa...st-v8-many-many-things-added.html#post1320178 or
    [Theme][EB01][DL30]Transparent-Myst v8 (clock options and many many things added) - xda-developers
    3. Thats there as a failsafe in case you happen to boot into the blue Samsung recovery so you can just apply update.zip to get to the red custom CWM recovery

    take it outta the download folder on your sd card and move it to the root menu of the card
    reboot into red clockwork mod recovery
    wipe cache partition
    in advanced wipe dalvik cache
    then install zip from sd card
    choose zip from sd card
    fins trans myst file and click yes to install
    when done reboot and wait for it to reboot(could take a min so be patient)
