    i downloaded the file for the vibrant which im not too sure what i downloaded. it took me a while to find and download odin but i found it. then i follow the steps from the odin tutorial but once i press start, nothing happend. i ended up removing the battery bc i waited a while but nothing happend. now when i turn on the phone it has a picture of a small phone, a ! inside an orange triangle, and a pc picture... does this mean i f'up my vibrant??? i noticed that i had to download samsung drivers but couldnt find them, is that maybe the reason the process didnt work?? anyone ever had this happen b4

    it has an internal memory card that needs seperate wiping i believe, i dont have a vibrant so i dont know the exact details

    make sure you are in debugging mode and you have the usb setting set up to kies
