    The z4root app needs to be run on your phone, so transfer it to your sdcard, install it and then run it.

    good luck

    I am not totally familiar with the fascinate, but I do know that you should be good to go. From my experience with the Droid 1, there isn't much you can backup while you are not rooted. I suggest you do a bit of reading as well until you get more familiar with what exactly you are doing and can do to your phone before you proceed.

    good luck
