I am somewhat familiar with rooting. I rooted several tmobile g2's in the past and loaded them with CM7 and what not. However, I am having some trouble with my Tmobile Vibrant.
I recently got my phone back from samsung and it has gingerbread 2.3.6 on it. I was just wondering, how i could root the phone and flash ICS roms? All the guides i have seen are for 2.2 or 2.1 and I really dont want to brick my phone again. I don't know why working with my vibrant has been so frustrating but i would really just like to know what to do step by step.
Thanks for reading and for any help you guys provide, I really appreciate it.
Umm, I would be very interested to know what your "About Phone" says (since you can't get a copy of the build.prop w/o being rooted). Especially the model number, ROM description and Kernel. Samsung does not have an "official" GB ROM running for the Vibrant. The GB ROMs that we have are mainly ports and kangs and have and will never come from Sammy.
I would suggest you make sure you have a T959 and not another model and also double check the above before you do anything. Once you do that, come back and let us know and we will help you further. But until then, I would say you run a risk of screwing it up if it is the wrong model number and try to flash a T959 ROM on a T959v or I-9000 phone.
