I've used Eugenes froyo, nero v3 and now axura and I have to say I like the latter more. Maybe its because I reconditioned the battery this time with this latest one but it sure seems to be better. I do like the look of nero v3 though so I am still thinking of going back to using that one.

You can put the wifi calling app on any install that doesnt have it. Just gotta flash it through clockwork mod recovery. I have it on my dropbox if you need it.

Just remember it needs to be flashed through clockwork mod recovery like if you were flashing another rom. I had to google around for it since one of the custom roms I put on didn't include it. And just this last time I had to do it again because it got messed up in my backup somehow.

Its an app. It should be near the end of your app drawer. Just load that and toggle the on button (with wifi on).

Nero v3 with voodoo 5.04 turned my phone into an absolute beast. Minus the nexus s, I would not hesitate to say that I now have the best device available on the market. The speed and responsiveness of this phone now is insane. The battery life is awesome (6:30am - 11pm with moderate to heavy use and I'm usually still around 40%). GPS locks on in seconds and is within a couple feet of where im actually at. Apps install in seconds and the browser is crazy fast. Honestly you owe it to your self if you are a Vibrant owner to flash this ROM.

I just can't get over how awesome this ROM has made my phone.

Between axura and nero v3 I like nero better because of the colors. And personally I can't tell the difference between the 2 performance wise.

EDIT: btw usalee here is a link to what the app looks like. When you were messaging me earlier I was out having a late lunch and couldnt post the link.

Thanks for all your help and for everyone else, just in case here is the link:

I flashed this via clockwork mod recovery and it works, but it broke my Swype in Nero v3. Swype doesn't work for me anymore, I get an error message stating that the swype package thats installed is configured for another device and will operate with limited functionality but it doesn't function at all. Has anyone else experience this problem?

After posting this I tried deleting the wifi calling.apk from system/app and when that didn't work, it occurred to me check the "About Phone" and I noticed my Build Number changed to "FROYO.UVJK6.Macnut.R14.Final" so I flashed the "Stock Swype" from this link:
http://eb-productions.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=samsungsgs&action=display&thread=1 26
and that fixed my Swype problem. I don't like that it seems like I have a mix of 2 roms so I will flash Nero v3 again.

I like almost all the roms but is there a zip out there than can get me back to the notifications from stock or similar. I like the horizontal battery icon moreso and the bigger icons. Axura and Nero has very small icons. I know this is minor but ...

I do know that it will count against your minutes. Something is tickling my brain that T-Mo has a service that will allow you to use wi-fi and not burn minutes for a monthly fee, an add-on to your plan kinda thing.

Dear all - I'm very new to this forum as I am searching for way to upgrade my Samsung Vibrant T-Mobile running android 2.1 (Eclair?) to the best and most stable 2.2 (Froyo) available out there. I'm not an IT guy by no mean and would appreciate very much for as much details and instruction as possible where to download, how to install, and so on.

From waht I read, the Vibrant is a excellent phone that just needs better version of Android installed and it will run much faster.

Many thanks in advance...

Justin

The calling through wifi itself is free, but your minutes are still burned.

Which doesn't make the slightest bit of sense to me at all. If you're on your mobile in your house and leave, (as i've done before) the call will drop since you've lost connection to your wifi. Wifi calls aren't that great on the vibrant in my experience anyway, so the feature to me is pointless.

Maybe if it didnt charge minutes and it WAS free i would probably use it but i'd rather stay on 3G as it is now.

--Disabled the feature--

Just incase someone asks, you can disable the feature by turning on your wifi first, clicking your app drawer, selecting the wifi calling icon, and just slide the switch to off.
It will not let you switch if your wifi isn't on for some reason.

Took me a while to find it so i thought i'd share.

DVNO,
sounds like you're pretty impressed with your outcome. I've been keeping my vibrant stock for reliablility issues with my previous ROM, how is yours for that? lock up much? Force close anything often enough to be irritating?

Default Team Whiskey

I am extremely happy with Team Whiskey Bionix 1.3. The best way I can describe it is pure butter. Everything works great plus it looks and feels like gingerbread. It is still a 2.2 (Froyo) ROM but they use multiple Gingerbread elements. Check out TeamWhiskey They specialize in Vibrant ROMS so this one is really tweaked specifically for your phone. I also recommend Overstock 2.4.1 kernal and the SetCPU app ($1.99 in the market) which will allow you to (safely) overclock your CPU to 1.2ghz. For me this this setup has been pure bliss. I've tried tons of other ROMS but always come back to this. If you need help just holla. Glad to do give you a hand.

I've been running a rooted D1 (original moto droid-->verizon) for awhile now and I've done something I had promised myself I would never do...I recently rooted a coworkers Vibrant.

His main objective was to remove some of the stock bloat, which we were able to do successfully, but I'd like to flash a nice stable ROM on that he won't have significant trouble with...mainly because I'll probably be the one to troubleshoot it.

Anyway, I am very familiar with Cyanogenmod ROM's...especially the Gingerbread iterations and was wondering how stable it is for most. I've got this link which leads me to believe it's still basically in alpha. So, at this time, would you guys recommend going with the aforementioned Team Whiskey - Bionix?

Sorry, this is kinda a rambling post and I always wince when I see the "which ROM is most stable" threads but...there it is...i've done it anyway...Which ROM is most stable and any idea when we can expect a nice stable CM7 for the Vibrant?

I'm a noob and just put CM7 nightly build #56 on my Vibrant. Other than the fact I don't have Wi-Fi Calling, I'm pretty happy. Haven't had any problems yet and my Quadrant score jumped to 1755 from mid 900's stock. GPS is currently working on the most recent nightlies and I'm getting quicker lock now than when I was stock running Samsung official Froyo release.

Now if I can just get Wi-Fi calling back I'll be in heaven! T-Mo is currently offering it free and it DOES NOT count towards package minutes (at least on the plan I have). Folks at Cyanogen who are maintaining the Vibrant builds don't have T-Mo accts, so that feature standard in CM7 probably isn't happening. I'm going to try one of the options listed in this thread.

Hope this helps.

Wi-Fi Calling is now a free feature that doesn't drain package minutes. I've had it since May. You may need to go in-store and have them set it up since it seems that at least a third of the call center customer service reps have no clue. I will be one happy camper if one of the fixes for Wi-Fi Calling listed in this thread give me that feature back on my CM7 flashed Vibrant!

Back on topic of "Top 3 Vibrant Roms" ... CyanogenMod 7 is the only one I've ever used. I like it a lot so far: Gingerbread 2.3.4, 1755 Quadrant score and faster GPS lock than stock fun running stock 2.2.1. Haven't had any force close issues or freezes. I'm running nightly build #56 because GPS isn't working in the CM7 release candidate build.

This APK doesn't work with CM7 ROM. Maybe it's because CM7 is Gingerbread 2.3.4.

Biffmod v1.3. Running stock 2.3.5. Very smooth daily driver. Significantly better battery life. Quadrant of 2086 with cpu oc'd to 1200. Highly recommend this one.

I just installed Cyanogenmod 7.1 and impressed by the aesthetics, but am disappointed by the functionality.

The email app cannot move emails to other folders. I have an Exhcange account and want to move emails out of my inbox.

The GPS doesn't work.

Do any of your favorite three ROM's fix both of these issues? I'd be willing to go back to 2.2 if necessary.

Default Wi-Fi calling on Vibrant with CM7

I still can't get wifi calling to work on my Vibrant running CM7.1

I tried everything I found online, nothing worked.

Any insight would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!

ICS Euphoria is the best rom i have used by FAR. ICS Passion is in 2nd place but the customization and battery life of Euphoria cant be beat in my opinion. My favorite stock rom is probably froyo but nothing beats Ice Cream Sandwich!

The easiest way is to download a program called Kies Mini and update through that program. Its really simple but i prefer to install updates manually but since your new this will be the easiest way for you. Follow the link below and you will be running froyo(2.2) in no time. Here is the link
Support: Software upgrade - Samsung Galaxy S 4G

Ps: i know it says samsung galaxy s 4g but the procedure is exactly the same. I have successfully upgraded using this method with my Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant so everything works fine
