    I factory reset my non rooted Fascinate. Now it's bricked. It is stuck in android system recovery. Says in red:

    E:failed to open /res/recovery.fstab (No such file or directory)
    E:unknown volume for path [/cache/recovery/command]
    E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
    E:unknown volume for path [/data/fota]

    E:unknown volume for path [/cache/recovery/recovery_kernel_log]
    E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/recovery_kernel_log

    E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log

    Does anyone have the factory flash? I can't find it anywhere. I can't even find Odin.

    This is a .tar file (the official file). I use RSD Lite, but have never ran into this type of file when flashing a previous version. Could you explain what I need to do to get my fascinate back to stock? I have been using .sbf files. Is this the same? Should I just drop it on the sd card and rename to update.zip?

    RSD Lite/sbf is for Motorola, Odin/tar is for Samsung. To flash a tar file, open Odin, put your Samsung device in bootloader mode and connect it to your usb port (assuming you have already downloaded/installed the Samsung usb drivers), then click on PDA (very important), not Phone and browse to where you're .tar file is located. Then flash the tar file and wait till it completes and your device reboots.
