    Hello lilballerlee.

    That site you link to has one of the best, step-by-step tutorials on recovering the Fascinate that I've seen.

    I can't think of what to add. If you're having trouble, just take your time and begin slowly with the drivers for you type of computer; they are linked there. You have to know if your computer is 64 bit or 32 bit.

    When you get to the part about mounting your SD card, it'll prompt you to do that when you plug the USB cable from your Fascinate to the computer.

    When it talks about putting files on "the root of your SD card," that just means don't put them in a folder on the card, just on the card itself.

    So long as you either restore to stock before or never use an OTA update, you can delete the bloatware and free up the space. So long as you have it backed up with Titanium, you can always restore if you want. As far as the red theme, that's just a theme, and I believe (correct me if I'm wrong, oh wizards of the forums) that you have to have a deodexed ROM to use themes.

    Honestly, if you are having this much trouble with it, I would stop doing things to your phone before you brick it again. Spend some time on here, READING everything you can. You can also check xda-developers.com, there are tons of stickied threads there that will help.

    Translation please? if you flashed a ROM already then all you have to do is find a theme you like that is compatible with the ROM you flashed and flash it.

    So
    find theme
    backup phone
    flash theme

    if it doesn't boot or you just don't like it restore the backup

    repeat until you find a theme that you like.

    Oh and if YOU screw it up don't return it for warranty repair.
