    I have been tinkering with my Fascinate too much. Now I can't get my phone into CWRM. I was trying to flash a new ROM. When I go to Recover, here is what I see:

    Android system recovery <2e>

    Samsung Recovery Utils
    - for BML -

    reboot system now
    apply sdcard:update.zip
    wipe data/factory reset
    wipe cache partition


    at the bottom it says:

    E:Can't mount /dev/block/st11
    (Invalid argument)
    E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
    (Invalid argument)
    #MANUAL MODE#
    E:Can't mount /dev/block/st11
    (Invalid argument)
    E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
    (Invalid argument)

    Can someone help me out please.

    Hmm...

    What CWMR are you using? Seems like 3.x

    What ROM are you trying to flash?

    What is your current set up?

    First i had Superclean 2.9.2 with voodoo, then a few days ago i switched to Evil 3.4. then today tried to flash Evil Fascinate 3.4.1. Normally I just hit the power button and go to recovery that way. Also have tried to use ROM Manager App with no success.

    ODIN the newest CWMR 3.0+ here in the forums,
    when it says reset,
    unplug phone, put battery in, immediately boot into new CWMR,
    wipe cache and flash your voodoo kernel of choice(try PB&J 4/26/11 voodoo)
    then reboot

    should be good to go with newest CWMR and newest voodoo kernel on EVIL v3.4

    then reboot into CWMR
    wipe cache and dalvik
    flash EVIL v3.4.1
    reboot ENJOY

    Ok I will try.
    So to disable lagfix all I have to do is put in a folder with that wording? Also how do I verify that it is disabled?
    After I odin the cwm how do I reboot so that it goes straight to recovery?
    BTW thanks for all your help.

    OK thanks I'm getting the hang on it. Quick question why don't you go higher than 1ghz? I'm sure you can at least go to 1.2 with a 50uv.

    I just noticed that in your thread with the link to Evil Fascinate v 3.4.1, you mentioned that a kernal was packaged with this rom. Do I still need to flash a kernal first, then flash the ROM as your instructions state?
