Samsung Vibrant to Get Froyo Update Tomorrow

vibrant

XDA member jmerchant informed us earlier today that there is something coming. Something that will hit all Vibrant users in the “happy” spot. Well, that last sentence came out wrong, but basically this will make them really happy. After months of speculations and complaints against Samsung and T-Mobile, it seems that the version of the Galaxy S will finally get a taste of Froyo… not just a port, but rather the full fledged official stock ROM. Vibrant users have been screaming for this pretty much since the release of the device as this OS release is supposed to come loaded with fixes to ensure that these devices perform in the way they were advertised to do so. As a little background, the device . . . READ ON »

Vibrant Customisation Tool For Windows

JIvyC

So you’ve got a Vibrant and you’re running FroYo, but you want to add a few more apps, tweak some settings, change launchers and all in one ROM.

Why not try out a new tool by XDA forum member birgertime? It’s a customisation tool for the Vibrant (currently for Windows only) and should work with any FroYo Vibrant ROM.

In order for the app to run, you must have Java installed. It’s a case of clicking through the tabs and selecting the options that you require. The app will generate a zip which you can copy to your SD card and flash with ClockWorkMod.

birgertime states that eventually the tool will work properly on Linux and OS X too. The program currently does have a large file size since it inc. . . READ ON »

How To Get A Front Facing Camera On Your Vibrant

how-to-have-a-functional-front-facing-camera-on-your-samsung-vibrant_1

There are a lot of mods at XDA, and this one is for the Samsung Vibrant, courtesy of XDA forum member siirial.

If you fancy a front facing camera for your Vibrant, take a look at this mod – you’ll need a specifically compatible ROM for the front facing camera, the right kernel, a front facing camera (of course!) and be up for part dismantling your device.

The internal battery cover and Vibrant camera will need to be removed and cleaned out. The XDA member states that he used a metal flat head screw driver, however you should proceed with extreme caution.

For full instructions including compatible ROMS, kernels and where to source a front facing camera, head on over to the modification thread.. . . READ ON »

Do You Have a Bell Vibrant (i9000m)? Then, Read This.

bell-vibrant-sm

It seems that Samsung cannot get away from problems with the Galaxy S devices. Some of the most common things that you will see if you went into any of the Samsung S fora would be issues with GPS, lag, and more. The kiss of death for any hardware manufacturer happens when the device begins to exhibit hardware flaws, limitations, or failures, with the latter being the worst. There have been numerous reports from many of our members that the Bell variant of the Vibrant has issues with the internal SD failing. Upon contact with Samsung, many users were prompted to ship their devices back to the manufacturer where they traced the error back to a faulty motherboard or even a bad flash, which required them to use Samsung tool. . .

LockScreen Mod For JL5 On Vibrant

2

If you’ve been getting a bit bored of the same old lockscreen and have recently upgraded to the leaked JL5 firmware on your Samsung Vibrant, check out this mod from XDA forum member untermensch.

The LockScreen mod is specifically for the recently leaked JL5 firmware and the dev has helpfully given users a choice –  you can pick the deodex zip file for custom ROMs or the stock zip file if you flashed with Odin or Heimdall.

Additionally, uploaded is the source zip file, which is for developers looking to port the mod to other ROMs and devices.

Please note that the framework-res.apk is a little larger, so you will need to ensure to allow enough memory on the system partition in order to install.
