    I'm trying to get the best out my phone like everyone else, and I'm trying to make it the fastest possible rooted as it can be. I don't really know about installing new kernels and roms but I have a rooted fascinate with lagfix and minfreemanager. Is there anything else I should be running on here to make it smooth and quick?

    If you have one click lag fix from the market, remove lagfix and ext2 files and delete that app. Download odin, then push clockwork recovery throigh odin. Then MAKE A BACK UP IN CLOCKWORK. Trust me this is important. Make a back up. Then download rom manager from market. Follow the sticky at begining of the all things root forum. Itss rather simple. You need odin on your computer. Odin will help you unbrick should that ever happen. There are plenty of people lurkin on here most times of the day. If you ever need help, just post it.

    Yeah definitely ditch the market lagfix....it does nothing.

    You will have to install the Samsung drivers on your computer and push clockwork recovery from the Odin program.

    Once you have that done I'm sure we can get you going with a decent rom/kernel combo.

    See the root sticky above for the clockwork link which should also link to the Samsung drivers.

    Okay, did the clockwork recovery from the Odin program and I'm ready for the next step. Do any of you have a custom rom/kernel that clocks your cpu in at 1.2ghz?

    You can do 1.2ghz, ive had it for a couple of months and it works great. But, the overclocked kernels have gone out of fashion for some time now. Allegedly there were faster kernels made with software improvements at the stock clock speed. Search for stupidfast kernels. JTs superclean ROM in rom manager gets rid of a lot of bloat and that might help too.

    yeah the "old" overclock kernels are fast however they dont contain the latest code and optimizations....therefore its like a speeded up version of a worse kernel then more recent ones :)

    welcome to the club :)

    yup those are dirrks last gift to the fascinate community (or seems like it anyway)

    but again remember they are 1200mhz but less optmized code both in the base kernel and in the older version of voodoo...and meant for DI01 (which is fine if thats what you are using) :)

    currently im on the dj05 leak with voodoo5 11/28 version.

    to get all of that you gotta join irc #samsung-fascinate...you will be directed from there.

    installing dj05 does involve flashing your a new radio with odin though...but its not a complicated process

    Thanks, I'll check it out. Now when I install this, is it like a factory reset or will be apps and widgets still be there?

    Try manually going into clockwork by holding volume up and volume down at same time and push power button.

    That worked, installed stock kernel from SD. Now, when I'm in root manager, how would I go about installing the UV kernel? Last time I tried...well...you know haha
