    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

    nvm i was able to reboot my phone back to 2.1... funny thing i noticed was that it still has the persons pics who sold me the phone inside the phone even though the sd card is removed. weird! but now that i tried doing the update my phone keeps blinking while it tries to install the drivers bc i bring up samsung kies mini

    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
