    Problems rooting with odin

    I'm using odin and the yellow box doesn't light up and I don't get the connection message.
    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers but don't get recognized with the phone off and battery out. Phone is recognized by computer when turned on and in debugging mode.
    Also su-2.3.6.1.x.zip will only download into a folder. Will this be a problem if I ever get that far? Idb.db downloaded O.K. any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Howdy,
    So you have the proper drivers installed on your pc.
    The battery is out of your Fascinate
    Odin open on your pc (if odin is open, close and open again)
    Using stock cable, connect your Fascinate to pc.
    Push down Left volumn button button to get to download mode
    (sometimes it can take 3 times to be picked up by odin)
    You should now see the yellow box and message that you are connected
    (I normally use this method and have never had issues)

    Your SU is fine. Just as long as you know where it is when you need it.

    Edit: just to clairfy, you would be pressing the volumn down button to get to the download mode
    DejaVu

    Other things to try. Make sure you have the stock USB cable that came with your phone. Try a different USB port on your computer. Try pressing and holding the down volume button while you plug the phone in.

    Also few things to consider. The only times I have trouble with odin is if I have many windows/apps open on my pc. Also I find when starying odin that right click/run as administrator (vista)helps as well. I dont own stock usb cable as I bought this phone used but no issues as of yet. Good luck.

    Run as administrator for Win7 also.
