I need help with rooting my upgraded Samsung Vibrant. I have not been able to get the proper file on my computer. I have a 64 bit windows 7 computer. I downloaded the proper drivers, and one click file, but can't open it. So I am trying a more simple method. My netbook is 32 bit and also windows 7. I would like to use the one click app in android market but it says "not compatible with 2.2 firmware. Somebody please guide me through how to root, and then lagfix my samsung vibrant. This is frustrating. I keep hearing how great it is, but keep running into one jam after another. have some grace folks. HELP
By ROM, do you mean the android version of software? It was upgrades from 2.1 to 2.2 doftware update. Please educate me just a little. I'm sorry, I have been gaining knowledge rapidly, but still cannot connect it all well enough though. I am a quick learner though....
I have T-Mobile. And as soon as Samsung was ready with the 2.2 software update, tmobile sent me a notice wirelessly. All I had to do was Accept and it rebooted my phone and everything updated on its own. Samsung's software was having issues with gps and in other areas. So I believe the software came from Samsung through Tmobile.
When did you get this upgrade? I have a tmo vibrant and havent recieved froyo yet. Now a few weeks back I did get an ota update but it was just media hub and a few other minor changes, definitley not froyo tho.
I am mistaken. Because I was anticipating the upgrade, I falsely assumed the update I received was the 2.2. I have (2.1-update1) Maybe now I can get this done. I want to root and follow with the lag fix. Thank you for your assistance!
Thank you for taking the time to inform me of what I can do and basically how to do it. I plan to follow your advice and will update later with the results. I'm looking forward to seeing great things with my phone and really appreciate your lengthly imput! Thanks Bro!
Factory Reset won't get rid of the root, I use the "one click root" with success every time. When flashing a ROM it will be rooted anyways, no need to worry about that if you'll be flashing different ROMs for testing (like me). Use ROM Manager for recovery purposes, never had any issues with it.
$250 is not bad if you bought it from a friend to go without contract.
Enjoy your new phone .
Is there any one click root solutions out yet after the 2.2 upgrade I have looked all over the web but majority is for 2.1 vibrant. I tried z4root but it just kind stopped midway and just said applying root. I had debug on and everything it said to do.
