Default (Rom){ODIN} Froyo ~~~That does not Brick! Downgrading Is Fine :)

Caution!!! You Must be on STOCK Vibrant Rom & NEVER Have Already Flashed the JP3 Froyo Image

Okay, Now with the Caution Posted, Lets Begin with the Froyo that Don't Brick

I have Tested this 5 Time's to Make Sure! Only install What I Post!

First,
You must already Have Odin installed & Know how to boot into Down-loader Mode!!

Do Not Select Repartition In ODIN Flasher
Quote:
Installing...
Extract the .zip file

Open ODIN Flasher, Select the Pit File.
Select Eugene373_GalaxyS_Froyo_PDA.tar
Select start..
Second,
Once Odin had Done Flashed, & you are in Recovery Mode you will not be able to Access anything & need to be at a Computer with Samsung Driver's installed & a working SDK pre-installed..

Side note: you will get an error in recovery, Don't be worried!!!! Ignore this!

Third,
Un-plug the USB From Computer ( Not Phone ) wait 5 seconds and Plug back in! To make sure the computer see's the Device

Fourth,
Open a CMD Prompt & type:
Quote:
adb reboot
Froyo with Downgrading back to Stock Possible:
[COLOR="DarkRed"]Download here > EUGENE373_SamsungS_Froyo_PDA.zip
*Stock Froyo with*
~ Root
~ SuperUser.apk
~ Build.prop now Correct
~ Defualt.prop Also Correct
****
*Issue's
Volume Key are Reversed

****
*Not working*
~ Rom Manager via reboot to Recovery!
~ Selectable Menu in Recovery
~ 3.5 Head-jack
~ Hot Spot Tethering

Ah so my assumption was right you would be the first to get froyo on board. You sir are effing awesome!

is this based off of the galaxy S froyo build or an htc build?

I take it those things that are not working are mostly due to the kernal version correct? I haven't taken a look at the source they posted on their site, but does it have everything needed to build a new kernel? Isn't this how those over at xda fixed the 'lag' issue?

ok, so can this update be done to a rooted phone?

The only real features i want that i currently do not have are the wifi tethering and flash 10.1.....

Does your update be incorporate flash?

I've learned through modding cars that stock is the most reliable so i try not to mod anything unnecessarily.

stock is not always more reliable... and comparison of cars to code isnt really a fair comparison since most rooted builds are usually improved from the ground up cleaning up kernel panic issues to small things like idle and peak speeds and this does take time alpha and beta builds always have missing elements because the problems in those areas need to be fixed... even when you are going to a newer build... think of it as taking a 67 body and putting a 69 or 70 motor... even if its stock you still have to tweak a thing or two but when its done you've got everything you want including reliability....

Props for this, just picked up a vibrant yesterday. Does the froyo increase system speeds as much as the reviews say?

Also can I install on a rooted phone?

Been fiddling with it and i think i have everything correct. Although Odin3 v1.00 is sitting on File analysis.
Odin: 0:[COM3]
PIT: s1_odin_20100512.pit
PDA: EUGENE373_SamsungS_Froyo_PDA.tar

thats how its set and looks nothing else. Re-Partition is not checked.

How long will it take, or am i doing it wrong?

turn it off, and yes. It's VolUp+VolDown+power/lock button. Wait till the "Vibrant" appears.

You can...but it is a PITA. Took me 3 hours to root a MT3GS using 10.4 OS X. Are you rooted already? Download Terminal app to do it from phone. Cmds through Mac are pretty frustrating, unless you are running a newer (10.5+) OS.

I got this working fairly easily. The only problem that I am having is swype not working. Is there a fix for this?

When I first opened swype it told me that the version installed and the phone did not match, so there was going to be limited operation. I went to the beta download site and it installed, but it did not fix the problem. There must be a file in this ROM that is telling the swype download servers that the phone is a I9000.

Let me know if you hear of, or know of, a fix.

I just goofed up bad.
I've got the Samsung Vibrant.
I followed this guide and now I'm stuck at the recovery menu.
What do I do? I don't exactly have an OK button so I can't select anything. I can't boot into downloader mode or anything.

To which ROM are you referring?

There are a number of different 2.2 ROM's out now. I'm using Team Whiskey's Nero Beta, and although I don't use headphones I've read a few post that say the headphone issue has been resolved.

Hi,

Everything went perfect until I rebooted the phone in recovery mode and could not select the option to reinstall packages from the SD card. Ive downloaded and installed android-sdk_r08-windows but I have no idea how to CMD adb reboot. Im probably missing something. Could someone help me out? My phone is useless at the moment

thanks

Rafa
