    hey guys,
    I rooted my vibrant and then i installed an update.zip file to fix the lag and during that process my phone's screen went black i waited like 7 minutes. the phone wouldn't do anything when i pressed the buttons so i just pulled out the battery. Now when i start the phone it goes past the S logo but with a black screen. the phone doesn't do anything at all and the lights for the menu and back touch keys stay on. I can go into recovery mode but what can I do to get my phone back?

    Glad to hear. Next time just remember to always do a back up before testing or trying any mods because you can always flash back if something goes wrong. Download clockwork mod, you'll thank me later.

    you should do what i did (wipe everything from the recovery mode). it actually helped the lag A LOT. I already had the phone rooted so after the wiping the root was still there and my phone was very fast even after i install everything back.
