Hey all, similar to everyone else I have the Vibrant soft brick issue from Ji6. Sorry if this has been asked before but my search came up w nothing.

Is there an Odin for Mac? I dont have access to a PC at all, work computer doesnt allow downloads.

There is no ODIN for mac.

But I'm sure you can get your hands on a PC for an hour or two. Go to a library or a friend's house. C'mon man.

I have struggled with this myself, so you're not alone. Your best bet if you don't want to borrow a windows machine is to stick a copy of Windows on your computer via VMWare Fusion or Boot Camp or what have you.

From my experience even that doesnt work. I tried Odin on my boot camp Windows 7 partition on MacBook Pro with no luck.

yes i am trying it on parallels now but it does not seem to register that the phone is plugged in when i run odin. when i plug it in it does ask me where i would like to mount the phone, OSX or VM and i choose vm but obviously it wont mount in downloading mode (or does it?) but odin doesnt do anything to the phone :/
