    Hey guys, I just switched from the iPhone to the Fascinate. I jailbroke and unlocked the iphone, and customized it like crazy. How do I start with the fascinate!? LOL

    jailbreaking the iphone is nothing compared to rooting and customizing android. There are already several themes for the fascinate, just look in the theme section, and there are a few roms and a kernel if you want to visit xda

    OP, you know you can customize your home screens and all that right? Just wanted to make sure you weren't asking about that.

    Yup. Rooting is just like jailbreaking, but there is a lot more that you can do.

    The warranty will be void, but un-rooting is easy.

    this is gunna be tough.
    LauncherPro(or ADW but I'd recommend LP). I'd also recommend ROM Manager Premium, Titanium Backup donate, and Root Explorer. so do i dowload all these? and are these on the comp or phone?

    Maybe just spend some time getting used to the new phone and Android first. Rushing into it is only going to lead to problems.

    You buy them from the Android market. But you need to be rooted before you run them.
