Default JI6 installed automatically... my phone is stuck at the Vibrant boot screen

Phone is rooted and I believe Ive got a lag fix installed.

No idea what I need to do - did a quick looksie through the JI6 thread and I didnt see anything in particular about the update ****ign up anyones phone.

EDIT: The update is called JI6 right? Whatever I got automatically from tmobile is what messed it up.

I'm having the same problem. I'm thinking its because I had the lag fix before this.

If you have the voodoo lagfix then you may have to use odin to fix things. See the instructions on the first post of the thread for Simbionix for that.

With other lagfixes you may just be able to wipe the phone. Can you still access recovery?

I can access recovery. I really didnt want to lose things like contacts saved on my phone even though I dont give a piss about anything else. I dont think the contacts copied into SIM so I may be screwed on that.

If you had your Gmail synced, all the contacts should be on your gmail account, and it will not be wiped

Your contacts should be saved on your google account unless you disabled that.

Sweet. I dont use Google regularly so I didnt even think about the contacts syncing to it.

What is my next step? What should I do? The ODIN thing?

It's a google phone, but u denied to use google service frequently, then you deserve the punishment

Just kidding. I think Odin is the only solution here. And don't forget to use google service after getting your phone back from death =D

Hi,
The same thing happened to me.
I pushed bionix 1.6 to sdcard with adb.
Then flashed it with clockwork.
