It's never long before a phone is rooted, especially not if a member of xda-developers can help it.

Well, it looks like Samsung and Verizon's latest baby, the Fascinate, is no exception, as Dirrk, Junior Member of (you guessed it!) xda-developers has just hacked the device into running the Superuser app...aka rooting it. Don't take my word for it though, check out the guide below:

adb push su /sdcard/su
adb push rage.bin /data/local/tmp/rage.bin
adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox

adb shell
cd /data/local/tmp
chmod 0755 rage.bin
./rage.bin

wait....
when it brings you back to your original shell or windows cmd promt

adb shell

mount -t rfs -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl9 /system

cd /system/xbin
cat /sdcard/su > .
cat /sdcard/busybox > .
chmod 4755 su
chmod 4755 busybox

exit

adb install Superuser.apk

It may not be the easiest rooting process in the world, but then again, it could be worse. Besides, if you're a Fascinate owner who was given a slap in the face by Verizon's decision to replace Google with Bing on your new toy, you're probably willing to do anything to sit down, flash a cooked ROM, and enjoy the wonders of stock, un-skinned and thus un-ruined, Android.
