    Previously I had a crappy huawei Ideos and I had no problems rooting that phone (Wasn't worried about bricking)

    I've just got a Samsung galaxy S running 2.3.3

    I was wondering how I should go about rooting it?

    Keeping in mind i've never flashed or anything along thoughs lines. I generally just use setCPU

    Any help is appreciated :)


    Edit- Wow been a member for a year and this is my first post.. I'm a terrible member...

    Unfortunately sometimes it just takes a little while for someone to come along, especially when posted so late at night.

    Now I know nothing about the fascinate but I found this on our sister site, seems pretty straight forward: [HOW TO] Root Froyo or Gingerbread on Your Fascinate

    I'm a bit of an impatient person at times :p

    And being an Aussie I guess I didn't give much thought to the time differences!

    Will check out the link, I appreciate the help :)

    Link didn't help the "yellow triangle" didn't come up for me.. oh well i'll stick with stock rather then bricking my phone.

    Also at the risk of sounding like an idiot I have a Samsung galaxy s GT-i9000 not a Fascinate.. Or are they the same thing in the states? :blink:

    No they are different so it may very well be a different process. I am looking now trying to find instructions for your phone but so far I have not found anything. I am going to keep trying to find something for you, I am sure there is a How-To out there somewhere if we just know where to look.

    You're not being annoying at all so don't worry about that. I just don't know anything about your phone so it is tough for me to find things and know what to do with them or if they are exactly what we need. And you should be cautious with your phone, all too many people jump in too fast and have problems.

    That is why I figured I would post on a forum rather then just try and do it blindly

    Still can't believe I joined a year ago and never bothered to post..

    Awesome!! Enjoy all that freedom. I strongly suggest you keep researching, especially on what to do if something goes wrong because you never know.
