    It is stock and coming from an original MT3G with CM6 , my head was spinning with how much faster it starts up and the speed of downloads . Not to mention the obvious things like the screen size and clarity.

    As great as the phone seems to be what are the recommendations for making it even more fantastic ?

    Thanks

    -Root it
    -Flash a custom rom, or flash the new leaked Froyo Jk6 (I love it so far).

    You can also apply a lagfix, but I have never. Plus I don't want to mess with it.

    Install NoLed from the market. MY FAVORITE app for the Vibrant

    oh ya, also install "where's my droid"

    If you are asking that question you haven't done your research yet, which is a recipe for trouble.

    If you really want to hack your phone, which is certainly your choice, my advice would be to read everything here first:

    Vibrant Android Development - xda-developers

    All you need to do is download the update.zip for rooting, put it on internal sd, restart your phone in recovery, and apply the update.

    as the other person suggested read the root section in this forum, also read the bible over at xda-forums.

    it is easy though

    Z4Root in the market is by far the easiest
