    Greetings and salutations. I've been lurking here for a few weeks and finally worked up the nerve to root my Fascinate yesterday using the guide posted in your sticky. Everything went without a hitch, and so far have done the following:

    Removed (via backup to SDcard):
    ==========================
    VVMService.odex
    VzwSMS.apk
    Blockbuster_Stub_v0_2_build_12-unsigned-signed.apk
    CarHome.apk
    CarHome.odex
    CityID_1.0.27_vzw.sch.i500_12118-release.apk
    DrmProvider.apk
    DrmProvider.odex
    DrmUA.apk
    DrmUA.odex
    NFSSInstallerSamsungEmbed_1.1.64.apk
    PVWmdrmService.apk
    PVWmdrmService.odex
    SisoDrmProvider.apk
    SisoDrmProvider.odex
    TetrisInstallerSamsungEMBED.apk
    VVMService.apk
    (also disabled Touchwiz launcher via rename to .old)

    Added:
    ======
    Launcher Pro Plus (had this before rooting)
    Root Explorer
    Titanium Backup

    Would love to hear some ideas on what else could be added or removed to speed up or otherwise enhance my Android experience. Oh and if anyone could tell me why there is always a "Market" service running when I reboot my phone, what it does, and whether or not it can be safely disabled, that would be awesome. It eats up 17-20 MB and as far as I can tell killing it doesn't prevent the market from working.

    Also, I've been skimming over discussions and tutorials regarding ROMs, kernels, and lagfixes (which involves both ROMs and kernels?) and while it sounds interesting, it also sounds a bit scary, and seems people have very mixed results.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this and I appreciate any ideas :)

    no need to install voodoo unless you feel confident you can uninstall voodoo without any problems.

    did you install Rom manager? you can find it in the market. there is a free and paid version. i have had the paid version since my droid 1 days.
    you can find roms and kernels and other addons on rom manager for the fascinate.
    you will have to install clockwork recovery via ODIN.

    check out this thread. very useful.
