    recently got a secondhand fascinate, rooted with no problems, installed latest cwm, and flashed miui (ick). now trying to re-wipe again to install cm7 gives me numerous errors about being unable to mount \cache as well as just about everything else.

    any suggestions?

    This whole process is a lot more involved than on the eris...

    steps to solve:

    full factory restore with ed05
    [ROM][ODIN][FACTORY][ED05] VzW full factory froyo restore with radio and kernel - xda-developers

    manual root with adb:
    Samsung Fascinate: Rooting - CyanogenMod Wiki

    flash clockworkmod:
    Samsung Fascinate: Full Update Guide - CyanogenMod Wiki

    and cyanogen 7 but using this rom:
    [NIGHTLY] [ROM][GRJ90] CyanogenMod 7 for Samsung Fascinate (fascinatemtd) - xda-developers

    and then remembering to use the reboot-recovery instead of 3-finger recovery to install gapps as described in this thread:
