Samsung Fascinate - Getting Fascinate Open / Teardown

Anyone had any luck getting their fascinate open? I've posted in the ffc thread as well, and i'm trying to open her up to take a look and see what kind of room i've got to work with inside the phone. It seems like there are clips holding the body together, and i just can't get them to unclip.

Samsung Fascinate - How To Flash Fascinate

So i had the pattern set for my new fascinate. My husband, thinking he would be funny, tried the pattern til it locked it. My google account/password wont work which i've found out is a problem w/ these phones.

I've also tried to do a hard reset multiple times, and i've also found that is a problem as well, sometimes it doesn't work. I've found my last hope is to flash it. I have no clue how to do it, and i dont want to brick it. Can anyone please help me? I am desperate. I am also not very knowledgeable when it comes to this stuff, so i kind of need to be walked thru it.

Samsung Fascinate - Is There Way To Unroot

Ok, sorry i am a newbie to the rooting thing. I've played with the os on my razr a while back. It sounds like the same thing, unlocking it so you can hack it.

1) is there a way to unroot? (Put it back if i have to return it to the store?)

2) will this prevent updates to the os (2. 2) when it comes out?

Samsung Fascinate - How Much Faster Phone Is

I have jt1134 super clean 0. 4 rom and i'm new to the fascinate so i'm not sure if i'm crazy so be kind. I have seen the lag fix but haven't done anything yet because of some of the things i have read said it really didn't help much. I installed this battery percentage! And it seems like i have no lag at all now. Is this possible? I'm not a rooting noob. I've had a droid 1 and still have the x so i know a bit but do not claim to be a pro but this has been amazing how much faster the phone is. Is the lag fix in this?

Samsung Fascinate - Can't Organize Contacts Last Name First?

Couple of complaints/issues:

1. Why can't we organize our contacts last name first?

2. A search feature in contacts would be great.

3.concerning the "note" section of a contact:

A. Limited on size (you can type anything you want into gmail contacts but it only shows a limited amount on your phone)

B. When you edit the "note" the amount you can see to edit it even smaller.

Samsung Fascinate - How Much Of Sandbox Does Dalvik Run In

Well, yesterday i took the plunge, pushed rage. Bin to my phone and ran it. What a nice little fork bomb, took about 15 minutes! Now when i run adb shell i get a nice little hash mark prompt haven't uploaded su/busybox or superuser.apk but that will come. I'm somewhat curious though, how much of a sandbox does dalvik run in? Any chance the same local root exploit that gave me root could be executed by a (non native) app to do something evil? I'm guessing that rage. Bin is native code and not dalvik bytecode.

Samsung Fascinate - How To Remove What I've Already Tried To Install

I have tried 3 different ways of applying this stupid lag fix, none of which work. Now i probably have 3 of them installed (even though my benchmark says 800 something) and want to get those off before i try again.

Question 1: how do i remove what i've already tried to install?

Question 2: how the *** do i get this to work? Everyone else seems to have no problem. I've tried the oclf app, i've also tried running a . Bat file through windows and adb and then applying an None of which have done a damn thing. I'm starting to get really frustrated. Can anyone help or send me in the right direction?

Samsung Fascinate - Getting Really Hot When Using Browser Or Games

Anyone else's fascinate getting really hot when using the browser or games? Mine is getting hot. Not just warm, but almost uncomfortably hot. I notice the screen is getting the hottest, but the back of the phone can be pretty warm (even through the case i have on it). It's not that big of an issue, but was wondering if i was the only one having this problem, or if i should consider taking my phone to verizon and getting it replaced.

Samsung Fascinate - Desktop Cradle Mode

So my desktop cradle finally arrived and i started playing with it. My initial reaction was that i liked it. Then i realized it's not customizable. At all. So what's the point? I can't change the shortcut icons at the bottom, i can't change brightness or text. But the worst part is i can't change what notifications i get when changing it to "night" mode. Wth? I do not want my phone buzzing and beeping all night long from automatic robot email messages that hit my accounts at 3:00 - 5:30 a. M. I want all notifications off and only phone calls to come through until i change it back to daytime mode or remove it from the dock.

Am i asking too much? I did find bedside mode on the market from when i had my original droid so i'll be using that at night. But i can't believe i need a third party app to get this functionality.

Samsung Fascinate - Is There Rom For Sf With More Of Droid Experience Built It

Is there (or will there ever be) a rom for the sf with more of the droid experience built it? Like, on my dinc, there are just some subtle things that remind you that you are using android. Example: when the unknown caller icon shows up on the dinc it's the android mascot, but on the sf it's a silhouette of a person (boring). I know we can alter the boot animation, but i rarely reboot my phone. Dammit if i could have the dinc software on my sf hardware, i'd be in heaven (i use lp and beautiful widgets and have it pretty close visually)
