    Woohoo! If you don't already have Rom Manager installed on your Fascinate, do it now, and you can install a custom recovery. This is just another step in the right direction. It won't be long now before we see some custom ROMs.

    Awesome news! I'm about to get the Fascinate over the Incredible, and I'm hoping that some custom roms will be up soon! Unless there are some, and I'm just not seeing them.

    You're talking the ROM Manager that is on the Android market correct?
    Thanks for the info......
    I knew it had to be coming soon

    Apparently, this is not quite the whole deal, yet, but a band-aid. Here is the thread over at XDA, [test] recovery-replaced I500 kernel - xda-developers. Things are certainly starting to look up.

    I'm just gonna sit tight til everything gets straightened out, and made simple stupid for the fake a$$ geeks like myself.
    It will be nice to get all the unnecessary stuff off the phone thogh.
    Hopefully someone will test to see if the front facing camera can be activated.

    Look at the very front of the phone lok very closely.
    That appears to be a lens, all the others have it on the other carriers.
    It just might be a custom ROM to activate it.
    Unless VZ instructed to put nothing there...
    Look just to the left of your speaker

    Yea I know the Galaxy S has it. Just like the Epic and I believe one of the Canadian versions?

    I don't think Samsung would just include it in there but not put it to use. That is a waste of money and resources. Also, hasn't this device been torn down (just like the other variants) and confirmed it wasn't in there?

    This just makes no sense. There would have been headline news on blog sites that it is there but unable to be used.

    You sure it's a lens and not the proximity sensor? Also, isn't the Camera on the right side of the speaker on the Epic and Euro GS?

    It would be awesome if it was there for you to unlock, but if you are saying all the other variants have it as well, then I'm sure the Vibrant/Captivate developers would have found out something already. Has to be the proximity sensor or something. Like I said, the tech blogs would have torn this apart real quick.
