    Your first mistake was getting the fascinate...one of the buggiest android phones out there.

    The fascinate is am awesome phone when rooted. The hardware is comparable to the phones released today. That said, please provide your os version (the specific 2.x.x listed in the settings).

    The link above should help. If you are using the android app to view this thread, the link won't work. For some reason you have to go to the link in a browser.

    I read thru that link you posted. One says no real need to root? ..and other methods require pc hook up. Was hoping for a true " one click" like z4

    I've never rooted my Fascinate but was wondering how it benefits the phone? I don't care about custom roms or themes but if it could make the phone faster and get gingerbread I'm down.
