I saw an app on the market called GST. It is for Galaxy S phones. It is supposed to root your phone from downloading a zip file and then recovery boot into that file I think. Has anyone herd of this app or used it? Does it work? I dont want to brick my Fascinate! Thanks in advance.

i answered this in your other thread

dont use the galaxy s tweaker....i read on xda a few fascinate users have issues with it. it cannot root your fascinate, there is no non-computer root method for us (and im anti-phone only 1 click roots, but thats me)

fyi most things made for the galaxy s dont apply to us. when they say galaxy s they usually mean the i-9000 thats sold several million copies (more than all 4 us carriers versions combined)

if you just started using your phone in the last 2 days, dont worry battery life gets better. for whatever reason (and im not getting into why batterys do what) it take a few charge cycles to break in. you should get a full days use out of the fascinate...it has great battery life...hang in there

rooting in and of itself is not difficult and poses little risk

its in the modding of the phone you have issues. tis better to freeze apps then delete them entirely. titanium backup in the market does this. (i believe you have to buy the full version to freeze apps)
