    root...install Clockwork Mod Recovery via ODIN, make nandroid backup of current rom in CWMR, download whichever Rom you want, wipe data/cache, flash rom...good to go

    If i were you and it sounds like you may be a noob with the Fascinate id stay away from Froyo alpha roms for now as they arent really daily drivers since some of it is still broken at the moment....plus it involves VooDoo kernels and red CWMRecovery....if you dont know what your doing you can soft brick your phone....just throwing that out there

    You gotta install clockwork, either through odin or rom manager, then through that wipe data/cache and install the kernel for whichever rom (kaos's rom requires voodoo and red clockworkmod, so install a voodoo kernel and reboot before you flash his kernel/rom) then install the rom right after.

    Not exactly. That page is for you to learn about rooting and installing custom roms and such. It'll be best to learn about it so you don't end up bricking your phone.

    ClockworkMod Recovery is a custom recovery that in essence replaces the stock recovery...it allows you to make backups, flash roms, flash zip files etc....
    Nandroid backup is the term used for a Rom backup you make in clockworkmod recovery...it backs up your entire system, data, etc....it allows you to rollback to your backup if something goes wrong or you dont like the Rom your trying out etc...

    So...learn how to root your phone... http://www.droidforums.net/forum/sa...-rooting-fascinate-regardless-os-version.html
    learn how to use ODIN to flash clockworkmod recovery then make a nandroid backup...
    Clockworkmod installation how to for windows / *nix - xda-developers
    download the needed files to get you back to stock DL01,DJ05 or DL09 with ODIN in case you mess something up
    Odin Restore files to get you to stock - xda-developers

    I suggest using titanium backup to backup all your apps once rooted....there is a free version in the market...

    research the Rom you wanna run and how its installed...good luck

    If you have questions just ask here on Droidforums or over on XDA

    clockwork mod is a custom recovery that allows you to make backups...for example...i have 4 or 5 different roms i use on a regular basis so if i want to change Roms i just boot into clockwork backup my current rom and wipe data/cache and restore a different rom

    It backs up the state your phone is in currently, all apps, settings, data etc...so when you restore its the same as before you backed up


    ODIN is a flashing tool used for the Fascinate that allows you to flash special files such as.....ClockworkMod recovery, Radios/Modems and finally full .tar files that will allow you to recover and return to stock if you F up your phone...get it?
