I have been reading most of the morning and am looking into some things. Alex's thread does show how to workaround the problem but it seems that the internal sd is lost (for now).

Since you are not the only one this happened to, I would like to know the above and see if it correlates to the others that this happened to in the Vibrant section. I'll post the same in their threads too.
i was running ICS Passion 13 with the Kiss kernel that came with it. and i've looked around and many people with ics have gotten this problem both on our device and on the AT&T's captivate.

If you loaded Eugene's rom, and are stuck at the recovery, don't wait so long to type that adb reboot command and don't unplug the usb just type the command. let the rom load then get the phone back in download mode and flash the stock rom.

Eugene's rom properly set up will fix your issue. try again!

that wouldn't work as the /data partition isn't being red by the phone. Nothing happens when i try that command.

These are the instructions, Eugene's rom write like a lowlevel format, either you are not following directions or you actually bricked the vibrant.
But....you say you've made it to Eugene's recovery if you did you should be good to go.

Okay, Now with the Caution Posted, Lets Begin with the Froyo that Don't Brick

I have Tested this 5 Time's to Make Sure! Only install What I Post!

First,
You must already Have Odin installed & Know how to boot into Down-loader Mode!!

Do Not Select Repartition In ODIN Flasher


Quote:
Installing...
Extract the .zip file

Open ODIN Flasher, Select the Pit File.
Select Eugene373_GalaxyS_Froyo_PDA.tar
Select start..


Second,
Once Odin had Done Flashed, & you are in Recovery Mode you will not be able to Access anything & need to be at a Computer with Samsung Driver's installed & a working SDK pre-installed..

Side note: you will get an error in recovery, Don't be worried!!!! Ignore this!

Third,
Open a CMD Prompt & type:

Quote:
adb reboot


Froyo with Downgrading back to Stock Possible:
[COLOR="DarkRed"]Download here > EUGENE373_SamsungS_Froyo_PDA.zip
*Stock Froyo with*
~ Root
~ SuperUser.apk
~ Build.prop now Correct
~ Defualt.prop Also Correct
****
*Issue's
Volume Key are Reversed

****
*Not working*
~ Rom Manager via reboot to Recovery!
~ Selectable Menu in Recovery
~ 3.5 Head-jack
~ Hot Spot Tethering

sorry for stressing but, I have a 4yr old that loves playing with the vibrant and I think I've brought it back from every brick situation possible. As long as the vibrant has power, it will not stop! xd!
