    Hello,

    I rooted my fascinate back in october 2010 while I still had my PC. My PC crashed and I now have a MacBook. I want to upgrade to 2.2 but I don't remember exactly what I did back in October so I don't want to run the risk of bricking my phone. I want to keep all the settings and everything and just upgrade. Is that possible?

    My Phone Info:
    Firmware Version - 2.1-update1
    Baseband Version - s:i500.04 V.D101
    Kernal Version - 2.6.29
    Build Number - SCH-I500.DI01

    If I need to, I can download ODIN on my work PC. Can someone please just tell me which file(s) would be best to root with and if it can just update my current settings.

    Many thanks in advance! I really need to get to 2.2 soon so that I can start using my Google Music account!

    SilentAlarm

    PS.. I have superuser, rom manager, titanium backup pro, etc. Do i need to do anything with these to upgrade??

    Community rom is froyo but you will have to wipe all data to load it (or any froyo rom)
    All the ROMs are listed in the link I gave you.

    Have you read any of the stickies? I really don't have time to walk you through everything....
    If you don't know how to wipe your phone I'm not sure I would tackle loading customs roms.
