    Aren’t we supposed to do something with the update.zip file we put on the SD card, or is that done automatically with this particular set of instructions?

    I am good until I click the “Start” button in Odin, and it instantly responds back in the Message area with ” All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0). It doesn’t seem to do anything at all. I am trying to flash”

    Debloated /Deodexed Froyo Leak+root+Froyo Clockworkmod

      Disregard… my phone wasn’t recognized by the computer. The COM port finally activated, and it is communicating now.

    Does this require root or any other roms running, or can this be done from a stock Fascinate install?

    any way to install using mac. Only computer I have access to?

  17. Reply DOS February 17, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    Great step by step instructions. I have not used Odin yet because when I rooted by Fascinate I had a one-click root that did Everything for me. Can I use Odin to create a backup of my existing ROM? I have tried Rom Manager to create a backup of my existing ROM but I am getting that stupid e-sig error from the update.zip file…
