As Android devices continue gaining popularity, the use of one-click rooting tools has made the life easier for users who want to unleash the full potential of their phones. As with many other devices, you can now root your Telus Samsung Fascinate running Android 2.2 FroYo using SuperOneClick Root.

The latest 1.5.5 version of SuperOneClick was released recently by CLShortFuse and it allows you to successfully root most Android devices running any Android version, and has been tested to work on Samsung Fascinate running Android 2.2 FroYo.
Apart from rooting, SuperOneClick also lets you unroot your phone, perform a shell root, allow non-market app installation and retrieve the phone’s unlock code, from an easy to use graphical interface.
To use the app, grab it from the link given below, extract the contents of the zip archive to a folder on your computer, open that folder and run ‘SuperOneClick.exe’ to bring up the GUI. Make sure your phone’s USB debugging mode is on when you connect it to your PC, and do NOT mountthe storage card. From there, you have one-click access to all the app’s features.
In case it does not work for you, retry the procedure with your phone in recovery mode, by switching it off and then turning it back on by keeping the Volume button pressed and pressing the Power button. For updates, feature requests and bug reports, refer to the app’s XDA-Developers forum thread.
