    Hi everyone,
    I hope I'm posting  in the right area to start with if not, sorry for my newbish ways. Ok o I got my Samsung Fascinate out of the limbo of my bedroom. I loved this phone when i bought it but i had to drop it because verizon is so expensive for me. Now i have a Straight talk LG Dynamic that with the help of you guys from this site Rooted without any problems. I'll go ahead and say this I get some of what I can do with a rooted phone but i don't quite get all the perks. Btw When i rooted the LG the service bars went up, i get service in what was once dead spots. I dunno if it was the root or not though. Anyway I was putting games on the Fascinate for my young son to play but hes lost interest, and now i just want something to tinker with and improve if possible.
        I'll mainly be using the Fascinate on WiFi, unless theres a way to use some other network for free, lol.. What i want to do is Improve its performance, Upgrade to a newer Android os ((if possible)), delete all the Verizon bloatware i don't need. Also I'm considering running Roms if you guys could recommend some cool ones thatd be great. I don't know if this phone can run them yet but i have found emulators for NES, SNES, N64, Gameboys of all models, and PSP. Is there certain things i should be careful of when running these?
       Basically i just want to make this phone better, faster and stronger. Because I can't afford any new gear at the moment  :( So please be patient with me and help if you can. I will almost need step by step and I'm open to any and all Suggestions so throw them out there please.
       On a side note i like to use this phone to read books and comics using cdisplay. But i also really enjoy stuff that uses the camera and gps like Google sky or Google goggles for example. I also use this phone to take still shots with because the camera is Awesome. Please Help me make my toy better  :) lol

    Ok. So you want better preformance, emulators, and usage.

    Well I csnt help you with usage for free. However, if your phone has a sim card slot, and the right world phone gsm antennas, you can get your unlock code from Verizon and run any gsm sim you want [a&tt, t-mobile, straight talk, aio wirless, net10, ect]

    I will check specs and xda and follow up this post with more information on that.

    Now, what version of android and rom are you currently running?
    What recovery do you have installed?

    Preformance with root:
    If you are on ics, greenify
    It is much better than your standard task killer ad it dose not kill tasks and then have them reboot on you.

    Titanium backup, now a new rom will remove bloat, but say you want to use k-9 mail and not gmail, well you can freeze it in titanium backup. I would recomend freexing gmail and not un installing.

    U can un install any system app in titanium backup.

    Cpu master
    A great app  use the profiles and half clock the cpu when the screen is off.

    Rom toolbox, this can be used to change receivers on apps so that say when you boit ypur phone facebook wont start.
    Warning! May cause app to forceclose and you may haft to reinstall it, or restore a backup of the whole rom all together.

    Gaming:
    Check out sixaxis control.
    Use ps3 controler on your phone.
    Way better than most droid pads I have held.

    Epsxe is good psx emu
    Snes a.d. is great too
    Both support hardware buttons.
    Set sixaxis as a keyboard input and tell it to change to it on connect and change back on close of app.

    U will need to flash the phones bluetooth address to the controler via the pc app [it is in the bottom of the sixaxis app on phone]

    Plugging into ps3 re pairs it with system.

    Looks like your device only has cdma antennas. No gsm roms.

    Sorry wifi only
