Rooting the Samsung Fascinate

I went threw a hell of a time rooting  my Fascinate. I  actually went threw two CLR's clames before i figured out what I did wrong. It was a completely different process then the Droid. After learning what a I did wrong I was able to root the  phone just fine.

When I started the root process there wasn't that much info on exactly what to do or the people didn't explain it well enough for me. I have figured out that the first two times I rooted my phone, i did it the right way. My problem was with the Voodoo kernel. I had to remove the kernel to get rid of all the FC loop. Now that I the phone rooted I stayed a way from the Voodoo kernel.

The easiest way to do it is to download a app called "Z4Root". It use to be in the market but I think Android yanked it. Download.

If that doesn't work for you try this Page out. This is how I rooted my phone, so I know it works. Just follow the steps and you'll do fine.

Next you just need to download Rom Manager from the market. Do your self a favor and get the paid version so you can flash all the different kernels, Roms and themes.

Samsung Fascinate

Well its been a long time since I posted anything on this blog, but I'm back. I recently upgrade to the Fascinate and sold my Droid. I know it was a sad day for me to. I was going crazy there for a while not have my new phone rooted and not being able to change the theme of my phone. So I jumped in and got dirty.

The root processes was different then the Droid but I managed to get the job done. Now that the Roms and themes are coming out I figured I could start posting what I find and hope it helps.

Lithium Mod V1.0.12 - Alternative Dark Theme

I finally got a chance to try out the Alternative Dark and I wasn't disappointed. Very nice looking theme when you add in his background. I like the the the look of the silver and black. It's a shiny silver, not a dull one to. I did have complaint about it. That he used ADW launcher instead of Launcher pro. I understand why he did it. So he could theme the icons in the app drawl. I love that about ADW but launcher Pro is so much faster.

All in all this is one of my favorite.

Lithium Mod V1.0.12 - Red Glass - Cuttalot

I finaly got a chance to try out the "Red Glass" theme and it kicks ass.  Just like it's brother (Indigo Glass) this theme is top notch. Cuttalot went ahead and changed the phone icon to a pic of a Droid. He also changed the music icon to a set of red headphones. He didn't stop there he added red to everything he could. Like the Market, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook and more.

At first i thought it would be to much red for the phone but it looks really nice. I think I found a theme I'm going to keep for a while.  Well at least for a couple of weeks.

You can find Red Glass in Rom Manager under Lithium Mod.



I wasn't to thrilled about the EVO theme so I'll keep it short. It's a good theme but theres just not eough going on for me. I did like the notification screen and the dial pad but thats about it. Here are some pictures of it let me no what you think.

Lithium Mod V1.0.12 - inTIGERation

Is there any Cincinnati Bangles fan out there. You might enjoy this theme, but what ever you do don't select the Gangsta font. As you can see you can read what anything is. The tiger theme really isn't the bad, I didn't think I would like. I wish I had Chosen a different font so I could plaid with it a little longer. The icons were a nice orange glass style, really liked that. It was the first time I had the round battery icon, think i will have to keep that.
