[Q] Multiple Issues with Vibrant - Root, Odin, PC Connectivity
I've been scouring this place for some answers, but everything I've tried ain't workin' and I've got multiple issues.
Long story short, I'm on my 3rd vibrant from Tmobile and I want to get this thing rooted. I didn't at first, so I did the 2.2 upgrade via kies. Since then, I can't get my pc (win 7 64) to recognize that it's plugged in. The phone will realize it, but nothing showing on the pc. I've tried the obvious stuff; debugging on/off, usb cable is good, drivers are updated. My computer will recognize other devices, so I pretty sure its not the ports.
I tried to root using update.zip no pc method, but astro will not allow me to move the file to the internal memory.
Finally, I thought if I went back to 2.1 with Odin, I could get back some functionality. However, I get the phone into download mode and Odin won't see it either; none of the coms are lit up.
I'm to the point of asking for a replacement, but I'd rather get it done myself and avoid talking with support.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
