    ya i was contemplating on root now or waiting for the OTA update but I didnt have the patience so I rooted with clockwork mod recovery with voodoo which increase the performance drastically. In other words rooting gives u freedom to access to your system customizing different areas of it such as themes, boot up animations, getting rid of bloatware and the list goes on.

    I really wanna root but I really have no clue wat I'm getting into.i don't even understand half the terms people use on the fascinate development part of the forum.im thinking about getting my friend to do it for me for ten bucks but he had the DInc and I doubt he would do it.

    go into the development portion if this thread and you will find a great, great how to posts. Its simple once you get all the toys. You never get the meaning of a book by listening in on a conversation for 30 seconds.

    Rooting/flashing can get you into alot of trouble if you dont know what your doing... i suggest reading the forums for like a month, then decide. And is your friend really gonna charge you $10? It takes like five minutes

    I'm running the 2.4 version. So don't sell yourself short getting 2.1.

    have you read the newbie guide to rooting yet?
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/sa...ent/79811-newbie-guide-rooting-fascinate.html

    Anyways what hes referring to is the custom ROM EB01 Super Clean created by Adrynalyne from android central. The difference is that he starting from the base EB01 stock he took out most bloatware (vzw crap), de-binged browser/search, fixed some bugs, added some neat widgets, latest market (2.3.2), accurate battery meter added, 5 different lockscreens and so on. Version 2.4 of this rom is the latest 2.5 is underway. Heres the link to the 2.4 superclean package rar file just follow all the instructions on tapouts post. To extract this file use 7-zip (free online software download). Be sure to backup contacts, apps, etc.

    Super Clean version 2.4 - EB01 Froyo leak root+Froyo Clockworkmod
    RIGHT CLICK AND SELECT EXTRACT HERE THE .rar file AFTER DOWNLOADING AND BEFORE USING -->EB01SC24_DXC.tar (Does not include boot animation so be patient while it loads)
