    My first Android phone, so please forgive my ignorance if any.
    Rooted Vibrant, flashed from stock ROM to Obsidian V4. I did a "backup
    current ROM" before "install ROM from SD card" by using Rom Manager.
    The process went smooth, but after booting into the new ROM, I found
    that all my contacts were gone. Sync with google account won't help
    because most of the phone numbers are not tied with my gmail contacts.

    Now, I want to know if there is any way to extract/restore my contacts
    without restoring to the saved backup. Actually, I tried restore but the
    phone did not boot after restore. Do I have to use Odin to boot my phone
    to solve this issue? And even if I succeed, will I see all my contacts?

    Thanks very much for any help!

    If you had your phone on default settings it should have backed up all your contacts to your gmail account. Did you check to see if you have your contacts in your account?
