PC Not Recognizing Vibrant in Download Mode
My stock, rooted Vibrant was soft-bricked by the latest update. I've been following the instructions on this thread: forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803492, but cannot get Odin to recognize the device in Download Mode.
One caveat of my current situation is that I'm running Windows XP (32bit) on VMWare on a Mac. Not sure if this is the cause of my pain, but I simply don't have a PC handy.
Currently, when the phone is connected via USB in Recovery Mode, it mounts and everything is cheery. Even on the Mac side, adb recognizes the device and lets me tunnel into it. But the instant I boot into Download Mode the computer no longer recognizes it.
I've reinstalled drivers, tried using 64-bit versions of drivers, tried Kies, but Odin simply does not see the device in Download Mode.
Has anyone experienced this and resolved the issue? Should I hunt down a PC and ditch VMware? That's pretty much my final option prior to heading down to T-Mobile.
