    I tried rooting with two different methods...n I'm not sure if I'm rooting bc my phone is doing exactly the same things n I can't remove bloatware I'm just left with terminal emulator in which I have no clue what it does ..can some help with a couple issues..
    1) how do I get the zip file of froyo onto my SD card in the first step?
    2) how do I get a rom (if that's not the same thing as above)
    3) removing bloatware

    You need to download ODIN onto your pc, then go to android centrol and go to the rooting page. Go down the fascinate forum, look for a thread that says superclean 2.9.2 open the thread and that will walk you through how to do it. That is where I went and it worked with the first try.
    ODIN will be in the same thread you can DL it all there.
    Just read the instuctions carefully.

    You will need a program that will unzip files. If you dont have on just google it.

    You may have to do it through odin, I tried to go thew sd card to but no luck. If you have the DL you want, unzip it, do the battery take and transfer it through odin. I think you have to put the odin and the 2.9.2 in the same folder on your pc first.
