    I can boot into recovery but there is no option to run a backup.

    Any ideas?

    I don't believe there is a recovery available yet for Fascinate, so that would be why. ;)

    Yes, android's stock recovery doesn't have the backup option. Which is very lame IMO.

    While using launcher pro: hit the menu/preferences/back up homescree & settings.

    I've used that but it's only really to backup the HOMESCREEN, not make an image of the entire ROM the way Nandroid does.

    We all need to hound @clockworkmod on twitter :p Hopefully he's already working on it. He = Koush if you don't know who makes the recoveries.

    The reason that you cannot do a Nandroid backup (which is a complete ROM image backup) is because there is no custom recovery image(lookup Amon Ra customer recovery image) made for the Fascinate as of yet. Basically, now that you guys have root access on the Fascinate (my bro just got one and rooted it and had this sort of question last night), you need to be careful what you do until there is a custom recovery made (and subsequently are able to do a nandroid backup) as you now have access to the OS's root architecture and can easily wreak havoc and or brick your device depending on what you try to push or delete from the device on a system level basis. The good thing about the Android development community is that these type of things(custom recovery) tend to get created fairly quickly. Currently it seems that the XDA site is down, but I would say XDA is your best source for android development and if you are looking to get a custom recovery for your Facinate, then that is the place to bookmark. If I had to guess, someone will probaly crank one out in the next few days or so. Good luck!! and remember READ all directions when it comes to rooting and system editing and always backup when you are unsure of a development step you are going to take with your new device. Have fun!
