    OK, here's how I proceeded (these instructions were taken from Cory's and Adrynalyne's posts in Androidcentral): I copied the following two files to my phone's SD card (main directory; not into any folder)... update.zip (1363 KB) and the debloated/deodexed EB01 file (stock_deodex_debloat.zip; 179,644 KB). On my computer was Odin, cwm_froyo.tar, and eb01modem.tar, and the loaded Samsung drivers for the phone. The phone's USB setting should be have debugging enabled. Unplug phone from computer, power it down, pull the battery. Start ODIN, plug USB cable into just the phone for right now. Press and hold the volume down key and plug the Fascinate into the PC via the USB cable. You should now see a gigantic yellow triangle and your phone will be in download mode. You can now release the volume key. Click on the "PDA" button in ODIN. Choose the cwm_froyo.tar file from your computer, and click "start". The phone will power down when finished. Remove the USB cable, Reinsert the battery.
    Press and hold both the up and down volume buttons at the same time (don't let go) and also press the power button. Hold them..the Samsung logo will appear, disappear, and then re-appear. Now let go of all buttons. You should see a blue menu. Select apply "sdcard:update.zip" (volume buttons move the choices and the home button executes the choice). You should now see a red menu (CWM Red)
    Now the volume buttons moves the choice but the power button executes the choice. Select "install zip from sdcard", then select "zip from sdcard", then select "stock_deodex_debloat.zip", select "yes install stock_deodex_debloat.zip". Once install is complete, hit the left most "menu" capacitive button on your phone to go back one screen. Choose reboot system now and ht the power button. You should now have Froyo, but not the correct modem loaded.

    Now, Unplug phone from computer, power it down, pull the battery. Start ODIN, plug USB cable into just the phone for right now. Press and hold the volume down key and plug the Fascinate into the PC via the USB cable. You should now see a gigantic yellow triangle and your phone will be in download mode. You can now release the volume key. Click on the "PDA" button in ODIN. Choose the eb01modem.tar file from your computer, and click "start". The phone will power down when finished. Remove the USB cable, Reinsert the battery. Restart the phone. You are done.

    Jamx1138- Do you have Froyo running on your phone yet using ziggy484's directions? If not, maybe you should just wait for the Verizon OTA push then. Is it worth it to screw up your phone with mis-placed steps? If your a cautious guy/gal, I would say no. The Fascinate is a perfectly good phone with 2.1...just not great. If your a risk taker with anything computer oriented, and can accept something going wrong and accept the challenge of fixing it yourself, keep plugging away. Read the EB01 strings at AndroidCentral or at XDA Developers. Try to learn something along the way. To be informed is powerful.

    Turion is right, better to leave well enough alone until you can read up some more... having a bricked phone sucks.

    I like it. The only thing was I didnt back up my data, so I lost my password.keeper data, music downloads, video and pics stayed, contacts stayed, but I like it. I just want to get started with Roms now. Where do I go and what not?
