Rooted Samsung FascinateThis didn’t take long. Guys over at XDA have already managed to root Samsung Fascinate. The process isn’t for novice users yet, unlike the root method we posted for Samsung Galaxy S/Vibrant/Captivate, but if you’re up for it, here are the instructions on how to do it:

[You’ll need to know how to use ADB to follow this guide.]

1) get RageAgainstTheCage from here and unzip it
2) Get su, busybox, Superuser.apk
3) adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/
4) adb shell (now you will see the $ prompt)
5) type “/data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin” (without quotes) in adb shell
5) wait till adb shell closes
6) adb shell again, and now you should have # (i.e. adb root shell)
7) type “mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/stl9 /system” without quotes in adb rootshell to mount system as rw
8) exit adb rootshell
9) push su and busybox to /system/bin using “adb push <path to su>/su /system/bin/su” AND “adb push <path to busybox>/busybox /system/bin/busybox”
10) push Superuser.apk to /system/app using “adb push <path to Superuser apk>/Superuser.apk /system/app”
11) adb shell
12) you will be back at the # shell
13) cd /system/bin
14) chmod 4755 su
15) chmod 4755 busybox
16) reboot your device
