Great news for our Canadian readers – our friends at XDA-Developer forums have just released a leaked build of Android 2.2 FroYo for Samsung Fascinate 3G+ with root. If you don’t want to wait for the OTA update, you can grab it right now!
XDA-Developer forum member 0mega1 has discovered and shared this official leak just today so get it while it’s hot. You will need to download and flash the ROM from the link given below using the regular flashing procedure.
Once flashed, you must first install 0mega1’s Telus Fascinate Cyanogen 6.1 Kernel with odin using the ‘.pit’ file and then apply ‘update.zip’ to root the device. Both these files can be found in ‘2.2 root.zip’ linked below.
The ROM includes BusyBox and the root works perfectly, along with SU. The release has been tested on a few devices already, and is running smoothly so far.
