    I am looking to root my brothers phone to fix the lag issue...I have a couple questions though first...

    His GPS is off by almost 30+ feet...it never comes in closer (My Droid X will go in to almost 5 feet or less.). I don't know a LOT about the Vibrants root/lag fix...

    Also his accelerometer is off by about 7 degrees (through Android Sensor Data app).

    So my question is...does the lag fix have any form of fix for the radios/accelerometer sensors in there as well? Also do you have the stock sbf in case the phone does need to go back in to return it to stock?

    Many thanks!!! I tried searching a little for the answers, but mostly live in the Droid X subforum.

    I've not heard of a lag fix for the Vibrant that includes anything to do with the GPS. I've always seen them as separate "installs," as it were, and I've seen nothing to address the accelerometer.

    Those of us with Vibrants are eagerly awaiting updates for these issues from Samsung. To date it's all speculation as to when these updates will come our way. Most expect Froyo will resolve the lag issue, and it's possible the GPS fix will be included, but no one really knows.

    What is sbf? This is something I've not come across. The phone can be unrooted, though it's not something I've looked into doing.
