    Go do some reading at the Vibrant Bible. You'll find links for Odin and the JI6 firmware files.

    [REF]***Vibrant Directory(Bible)Rev2.1--A little color can't hurt--***(10/20/2010)*** - xda-developers

    Read the forums too, both here and on xda. You'll pick up more and more information as you go along.

    xda-developers

    Rooted means you have complete access to the OS on your phone and can perform tasks and run apps that you would not able to do otherwise.

    A ROM generally refers to a custom firmware for a phone, though it can also apply to stock firmware. ROM stand for Read Only Memory, so in this case it's something of a misnomer really.

    The latest official firmware for the Vibrant is JI6. What does it say under Settings>About phone>Baseband version?

    LMAO, dude no offense but if you don't understand words like "rooted" or "rom", just leave it be until you get the OTA (Over-The-Air) update because flashing, modding, and tweaking are a whole different world. You will be spending days trying to figure this out driving yourself crazy.

    Again no offense.......I'm just sayin.
