1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Get out your soldering iron folks! Its time to make your Samsung Fascinate UNBRICKABLE! Thats right AdamOutler from XDA has developed a method to Modify the OM pins so that the phone can boot from USB, UART, or MMC. This method makes the phone unbrickable, as there is nothing you can do software wise to prevent the phone from booting into this mode. If you know what flux is, have a steady hand, and possibly an old Fascinate sitting around, its time to get your hands dirty!

    What if your g/f's Fasinate is a POS and on their 3rd one (and in need of a 4th one) in 3 months? I'd love to try this, but she'd kill me if I screwed it up and had to shell out money for a new phone....outright
