Vibrant Customisation Tool For Windows
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 includes every single program – this may be optimised in the future so that the programs can be downloaded from the internet to make the utility much smaller.
The app is in alpha, and for more information including more screenshots and download link, head on over to the application thread.

It's a slippery slope...
