    You need to download odin, the samsung drivers to install on your pc, and either the vibrant original firmware rom or the OTA JI6 update rom and flash which ever one you choose.

    All your resources are here

    Good luck!!

    Follow what the person above mentioned, but also please provide more background information. I'm assuming you were running completely stock since you were able to get the OTA. However, please let us know if you were rooted, running some kind of lagfix, etc.

    Thank You.

    It will not turn on at all, meaning you see absolutely zero indication that their is some kind of activity? No vibrant logo? Nothing?

    Can you get into recovery mode? Download mode?

    See if you can get into download mode.
    Hold down both power buttons, meaning hold down the up and down key at the same time, never letting go. Grab your usb cable attached to your computer, and plug it into the phone while you still hold down both volume keys. Does the phone go into download mode?

    Hopefully you don't have one of the phones with the 3 button issue.

    I have the exact same problem!
    After updating using mini Kies, I cannot turn the phone on.
    Pressing the power button does nothing, screen is black, I also can't go to download mode.

    I've removed the buttery\sim\sd card and put them back in.
    Even charged it for a while, still dead.

    Anyone encountered this?
