If someone would be kind enough to, at the least, give me a checklist or links to what all I need to get this thing running I'd really appreciate it.
Running Mac OS X Lion if it helps.
Since you have a mac it would be a lot easier for you to flash a
clockworkmod type custom rom.
You must have clockworkmod recovery to be able to do this.
If you are running stock rom and already have clockworkmod
recovery in your phone then then you can BACKUP your stock
rom with clockworkmod and then flash a new custom rom
as long as its a clockworkmod rom zipfile.
Most all of these custom roms you see here on xda are all
clockworkmod types (zipfiles) which do NOT need ODIN
or Heimdall at all.
But you do need to have a usb card reader if your your
computer is not reconizing your samsung phone as an external
If your Mac computer does reconize your phone as a external
USB device then you do not need to remove the microSD card
and you do not need a card reader.
I am sure you know how to use a usb card reader so I will not

Follow the easy step by step instructions to a "T" if you
don't want to start all over and have to do it again.
