    A buddy of mine just got the Vibrant and he was asking me if there is a way to do a manual install of Froyo rather than wait for the update. Could somebody direct me to step by step instructions if they are available? Would he have to root? I searched for a bit but didn't find anything specifically for the Vibrant. Thanks.

    No, no, no. I installed Froyo. It worked amazingly, until I went back to 2.1 I thought I bricked my phone until I finally got it into Download mode and flashed the stock 2.1 rom back onto it. I'm very lucky I still have my kick-ass phone and I will never do that AGAIN.

    Just install a custom rom like Axura and be done with it. This device will never have 2.3 or higher, so what's the point of waiting for the official 2.2 update just to have to do a custom load for gingerbread? Go custom right off the bat.

    Yes, learn how to download a custom rom. I gave up an Samsung. Sombionix released JK6, Stock Froyo. It works great! I slapped the Touchwiz mod from the Galaxy tab over the top of this Rom. The landscape screen rotates automatically really nice without too much lag. Gonna see if a lagfix will improve this. Go to XDA developers and do your homework first!:D

    I'm currently running TeamWhiskey's Nero 2 beta (2.2 based on JL1) combined with Eugene's Super IO (no lagfix needed) Kernel (also JL-based), and I must say.... The Vibrant is an amazing phone.

    I was getting ready to get rid of my Vibrant, but yesterday I rooted and installed FroYo. So happy I did. The Vibrant will stay around now.
