Problem after installing the wrong Voodoo version
My brother and I both have a Vibrant. He broke his so I loaned him mine for a week. While he had mine (which I've upgraded to 2.2), he installed Android 2.1 Voodoo 4 on it. Little to say, after rebooting, the phone wasn't booting past the boot screen.
I've now followed some instructions from the forum, and have reflashed my phone with Eugene's non-bricking ROM through Odin, and then the phone boots up just fine. However, if I try to install any apps through the Android Market, I am told they can't be loaded due to not having enough free space - though I have over 1GB. I have a feeling that only a small area of the drive was reformatted to EXT4 (Voodoo) formatting, and it can't see the rest.
To try and remedy this, I've reflashed my device back to the stock firmware and repartitioned through ODIN. Now however, when I boot the phone, I get the T Mobile and Galaxy S bootup screens, and then the phone goes black with no lights on.
Can anyone help me recover my phone?

I reflashed without repartitioning, and still get the same result. Boot screens then just black.

It seems that no matter what configuration I use, I can't get the stock version to boot.
However, I have Eugene's "No Brick" ROM installed and working on a limited basis - but getting the previously mentioned "out of space" errors when I try to install apps, which makes it difficult to do anything, including installing CRW to try and load my last good ROM.
Here is a link to that ROMs .tar file:
