Default Rooting the Fascinate Regardless of OS Version

This is only for the Verizon Samsung Fascinate do not use for any other phone

As always myself, android forums and anyone else are not responsible for what you do to your phone.

This instructions are for windows only at this point. I may put together instructions for linux later on

That being said if you don’t follow this instructions closely and mess around with settings in Odin you could brick your phone. Whatever you do in odin always use the pda button to select files never use the phone button.


*Credit to Adrynalyne for the cwmrecovery file and the modified superuser zip
*Credit to Koush for the update.zip

Download the following
Samsung Drivers
Odin
CWMRecovery_DJ05_DL09.tar.md5
Update.zip
su-2.3.6.1+busybox1.19.zip

1.) Install the Samsung Drivers
2.) Place Odin3 v1.3.exe and CWMRecovery_DJ05_DL09.tar.md5 in the same folder on your pc
3.) Place the update.zip and su-2.3.6.1+busybox1.19.zip in the root of your sdcard (root means not in any folder just on the sdcard)
4.) Put your phone in download mode by taking out the battery. Then hold the volume down button while plugging it into the usb cable attached to your computer
5.) Open Odin
6.) This is very very important ***Don’t touch any settings in odin only use the pda button and start button***
7.) Im going to say that again just for emphasis Don’t touch any settings and only use the pda and start buttons. Using the phone button to flash tar files will leave you with a brick

8.) So press the pda button then select CWMRecovery_DJ05_DL09.tar.md5
9.) Press start (Note this will reboot your phone when complete)
10.) Once your phone has booted up and you know everything is still good, power the phone off.
11.) Power the phone on while holding the entire volume button down. Let go of the power button when the Samsung logo shows but keep holding the whole volume button.
12.) This will boot you into the stock recovery. Use the volume rocker to move down to apply sdcard:update.zip then press the home key
13.) After it applies you will be in clockworkmod recovery
14.) Use the volume rocker to navigate to install zip from sdcard. This time though you will use the back key to select. (I know it is annoying that there are two different select keys but get used to it)
15.) Navigate down and select choose zip from sdcard
16.) Navigate to su-2.3.6.1+busybox1.19.zip press back to select it
17.) Navigate down and select Yes – Install su-2.3.6.1+busybox1.19.zip
18.) Once that is done press the search button to go back a menu
19.) Then select reboot system now
20.) Congrats you are now rooted

Quick question: Do steps 5 through 20 all happen with the battery removed from the phone?

I assume the phone is in a low power mode even if you power it off as long as the battery's still in?

Oh i figured it was using the power from the PC. I was more curious if the step of removing the battery was required, or if you really could just hold down the volume button and then plug in the usb cord.

no because you have to remove the battery to get it into d/l unless you are running a theme with d/l option

Hi, newbie here with my first exposure to android phones. After a few weeks of playing with my Fascinate, I've finally decide to root it. My phone currently has the DL09 OTA update .

I am following OMJ's guide above step by step. Everything looks good up until step 12 where I go to apply sdcard:update.zip. I get this message:

E: failed to verify whole-file signature
E: signature verification failed
Installation aborted.

Any idea where I went wrong?

You need to download clockwork recovery on the phone through odin. Did you use the clockwork link above first?

I get the same thing. My phone didn't reboot after CWM it said it was successful but didn't reboot. After the exclamation point you can touch the home button and get the message that bobski got. I'm on DL09 also.

Also if you add to the end of number 4 to put the battery back in then the phone will reboot automatically.

As OMJ said in post #13 make sure the recovery tar takes and you get success. I recall months ago many of us were flashing it twice [step #8 on OMJ's list above] it wont hurt anything to do it twice for those of you who's CWM is not taking. Im kinda at a loss here myself without seeing and hearing each specific case. This should work as he described

Yes that error occurs when the recovery tar does not take. I've seen it before. There are work arounds beyond my skills. OMJ would know

Bingo then. OMJ's file might be bad then. Yeah lets get the word out to use the old one in xda. Also if you havent matched a DJ05/DL09 kernel with your DL09 rom you will not have haptic

Ive used the file several times as well as some other people in the irc. Not sure why it wouldnt be working for people.


anyone who is having problems can try this file http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7223192/RootSF/CWMRecovery_DL09.tar.md5 in odin instead of the one linked. Adryn made this as well but like the old one it flashes a kernel but at least its a DL09 kernel instead of a di01 kernel.

Try the one I posted over at xda you'll have to install a new kernel to get your haptic feebdack back which isn't the easiest to understand but put it on your SD card and install in CW that is what I done

This might sound incredibly simple, but I noticed on mine, after flashing the DL09.tar in Odin, the update UNCHECKED the USB Debugging option under Applications... I got the triangle warning a couple times (reflashed in Odin and tried to install CWM) but until rebooted normally, and double checked that USB Debug setting, it was no go. I rechecked it, re-flashed in Odin, and it took CWM Recovery the very next go round.

Might be something to check out!

Success usin the old xda file!! Thanks everybody!
I got a warning on reboot about android voice search not responding...I hit wait instead of force close...everything seems ok for now.

I dont use haptic feedback anyway so its no big deal for me.

This is my first time rooting using CW, Odin , holding down vol. buttons---etc...im the newb that used the z4 root. This wasnt that bad thanks to this great community. Thanks again!

Now on to JTs superclean ROM...another first for me!

First casualty seems that I have lost all vibe, not just haptic feedback...I understand its the result of a kernel being flashed?

EDIT: AND BT wont turn on.

I think I need a new kernel..

Everyone was once a newb
Now are you on DL09 or DJ05? You mentioned jt's superclean above which is DJ05 but adrynalyne also has a superclean DL09. It makes a small difference. Not for the kernels since they are interchangeable between DJ05 and DL09, but themes and stuff. As log as you have a DJ05/DL09 kernel you will be ok. But for clarity's sake please inform if your build is DJ05 or DL09

Thanks for the quick response! Yeah, I'm finally getting the terminology of android and really enjoying tinkering, but want to do it right so I have a fully functional phone.

Im on the DL09 OTA and, my mistake, I actually meant to say adrynalyne's DL09 superclean, not JT.

EDIT: and I used the file from this thread which finally worked in rooting my phone.

Clockworkmod installation how to for windows / *nix - xda-developers
Cool, yeah its easy to confuse since superclean was jt's brand name term but adrynalyne bought the rights to the trademark name for $1000 in monopoly money so its all good now .
OK so rooted and DL09 as long as you got clockwork you can pretty much take your pic from the kernels here http://androidforums.com/fascinate-all-things-root/235766-one-stop-shopping-sf-kernels.html

So installing adrynalyne's super clean wont come with its own kernel that will fix my issues?

And, I guess if the answer is no to that, then one of the kenels from your kernel thread will overwrite the kernel I have?

I guess I just want a simple kernel that wont have issues.

Correct, superclean is kernel less on purpose. So yes just pick on from the above linked thread. But sure you under the difference between voodoo and non voodoo if you go with voodoo. If its at all confusing start with non voodoo

Ok thanks. Yeah right now I'm not touching voodoo kernels with a 10' pole...definitely not there yet knowledge wise in case issues arise

I'm assuming I cant go back to a "stock" kernel and stay rooted.
I just want a kernel that's stable and wont cause issues that has me in a jam during the day while at work, etc. nothing fancy.

I've looked at the thread and the comments and cant really decide which one is a newb kernel

any suggestions?

Try imnuts 1/15 nonvoodoo with whatever voltage you think you can handle, heck start with stock voltage and then as you get used to the whole cwm flashing and understand if you phone can handle the uv start working down towards lower voltages. Many of us can handle -100mv UV which does give a tad more battery life over the course of a day

Thanks for your help man. Im going to try that and see if the vibe, BT, and now BW issues resolve.

After successfully flashing the kernel I will attempt to flash the DL09 super clean.

You have a link where I can buy you a beer?

You are too kind. You thanks is enough for me, just pay it forward

Also note that superclean will de-bloat you so if you rely on anything vzw it will be gone afterwards

on the contrary, I want to get rid of the vz bloat...really mostly useless IMO

I just want a clean snappy phone with no lag.

My litmus test is hitting the search button so that I can find a contact, etc.
my evo basically had no lag so I would look up apps and contacts using the search button all day, but with the SF, the lag makes that discouraging to use.

Thanks again for your help.

Because I got to installation aborted several times, I tried the the file listed in post 25 from OMJ. Worked like a charm.

A couple of things from my point of view. Already having DL09 before starting this, loosing root from Dirrk's EZ Root v0.2 after update to SL09, no bloatware or anything removed from the phone, I came here bc that root method didn't work anymore...

In Odin, I get Kernel, Reset and Pass and my phone powers off. I need to put my battery back in the phone in order to power up at step 9 and wherever you see (reboot). I let the phone get to full desktop and then powered down.

I checked my phone, and root is back.

Not only is there a method for rooting, but a quick recovery for those having problems like myself.

Question: What thread should I monitor for rooting and OTA when 2.2 comes out? Is there one thread over another that is the "go-to" thread?

Thanks in advance, and thanks again for such easy to follow steps and recovery.

I don't think you'll have to worry about that when froyo comes I'm sure it'll be more like where can you look and not see it

Is there a reason to de-root my phone before giving it back to Verizon? They just sent me another phone because my USB icon shows that I'm physically connected to the cable once and a while, when I am not. While that is going on, charging shows a fully charged battery when I know it is not. These are pre-DL09 issues.

If there isn't an issue with turning in a rooted phone, then removing superuser shouldn't be an issue either, correct?

If there is an issue, what's the best method for de-rooting if I used this method to root?
