Hello devs/deviants/xda members.

I hate for this to be my first post, but avast.

The other night (in a drunken stupor that i... regrettably...dont remember) i managed to brick (probably) my Vibrant.

From going through my history i figured out that i successfully rooted my phone and loaded Macnut R14 ROM. However, it then appears that i loaded the Axure CE rom (for Captivate i think).

It is now stuck in a loop. The Att load screen appears, followed by a Galaxy S, Gt-i900 screen. My phone then says in a creepy Radiohead voice: "restore operation"

I cannot access recovery (through adb or 3-button recovery) and i have been unable to get into download mode.

My finace has forbidden me to buy the replacement phone ($288 dollars if Tmo finds anything wrong with it), so i turn to you, masters of all thing dev, for help.

I expect a certain bit of jabbing and or anger from those more established members. If it makes my case any better, i have been trolling XDA for quite a while and y'all helped me root my G1 (which i love ;) )

Any help would be great.

Final question--is it true you can't brick a Vibrant? Just looking for some more info.

Thanks in advance,

~ J017373

Was your phone recognized in odin before this mishap? Just make sure you have the proper drivers installed. If you do indeed need the drivers, just search the forums.

Search the development forums for the link to the drivers. Then just download the drivers for your respective OS.

After you have the proper drivers, just re-open odin and it should recognize your device. You should have a COM##.

Best thing you can do is just go to the vibrant bible or click on the stickies tab. Your drivers are there along with odin and odin tutorials. I wanged my phone once or twice and xda hasn't failed me yet.

Remember how you just fixed your phone... if you continue to tweak it, it will more than likely happen again ;)

Good to have you back.
