    Computer all day!
    Instructions:

    First time flashing CyanogenMod 7 to the Samsung Vibrant, or coming from another ROM?

    • Root the device and install ClockworkMod Recovery.
    • Perform a NANDroid backup of your current ROM.
    • Format the system, data & cache partitions of your device.
    • Perform a factory reset.
    • Flash CyanogenMod.
    • Optional: Install the Google Apps addon package.
    ClockworkMod Instructions:

    This guide assumes the Samsung Vibrant already has Android 2.2 build UVKB5 already installed on it. If the Samsung Vibrant already has ClockworkMod Recovery installed, skip this section.
    Warning: Installing a custom recovery image on the Samsung Vibrant will void the warranty.

    1. Download Cmenard's OverStock kernel with ClockworkMod Recovery, the Heimdall Suite:
      • Cmenards's OverStock Kernel with ClockworkMod Recovery: download md5: ecd3c2335a90ef93bc1b6b6514386c8e
      • Windows:
        • Heimdall Suite 1.1.1: download NOTE: The Heimdall Suite requires the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package installed on the computer, which can be downloaded here.
      • Ubuntu 32bit:
      • Ubuntu 64bit:
      • Mac OS X:
      NOTE: The source code for the Heimdall Suite is available on Github.
    2. Windows ONLY:
      1. Power off the Samsung Vibrant and connect the microUSB to the computer but not the Samsung Vibrant.
      2. Boot the Samsung Vibrant into download mode by holding down Volume Up & Volume Down while connecting the USB to it.
      3. Run the included zadig.exe in the drivers folder of the Heimdall Suite.
      4. From the menu, choose Options

    I give this rom a 2 out of 5. I have flashed this rom om my vibrant and it ran OK but I guess I am a picky person when it comes to roms. I will state that the auto brightness dosen't work and the GPS is still alittly buggy but all in all its a stable rom if those issues where fixed I think I might install it again

    you guys should try ICS Euphoria, you can flash to it coming directly from cm7. It is by far the best rom i have ever used. Battery life is awesome and everything i have checked is working perfectly.
