I played with it on my Hero. It wasn't fully stable tho (camera didn't work). I liked it. The screen on and off animations were pretty cool but a little slow on the Hero. Now I have an EVO shift - can't wait until they discover perma root for it, then I can get some gingerbread in no time

I just converted over to Android. I was a happy WinMo user for years (ignorance is bliss) I now have the Vibrant with T-Mobile, it had 2.2 "Froyo" already on it and I was just wondering how you get updates for your OS? I tried the OTA but, say no updates available. I have been reading allot on the internet and at xda but, I don't want to flash a rom on my phone and hope all the bugs are worked out, I just figured a working "Gingerbread" would have been released already seeing as how they are now onto "Honeycomb" for tablets and already developing the next "i" platform. Anybody know whats going on or how I can get updated? Thanks

Sorry man your only option to get Gingerbread is to root your phone and flash a rom. The Vibrant just got updated to 2.2, I didn't think any of them were even shipping with it yet. Are you sure that you have 2.2 and not 2.1 on your Vibrant?

I don't really expect the Vibrant to be updated to 2.3 because the Galaxy S 4G just came out and it is replacing the Vibrant.

As for your confusion as to why there isn't an update if there are newer versions. Honeycomb is as you said for tablets only, thats like comparing Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7, they are completely different. The reason that Gingerbread isn't out for the Vibrant, or pretty much any other phone yet, is because Google only makes the generic operating system. From that point i...

I actually figured it all out and all three of my Vibrants are running Froyo 2.2 on them. I really didn't read the fine print on the update page. Turns out the mini-kies software is not compatible with 64bit Windows systems. I do have another question though. Are there different Samsung SGH-T959 models? Mine has the two dots to the left of the earpiece but, it also has what looks like a front camera hole on the right of the earpiece. The other two that I have do not have this feature. Any ideas?

Hmm, I really don't know. I've never heard of different versions or revisions to the Vibrant. The only idea that I can think of is if your phone is actually the Galaxy S 4g and not the Vibrant. They do look basically the same.

There could possibly be different versions of the Vibrant that I don't know about though. I'm in telesales so I don't actually see nearly as many phones as a store rep would. Maybe someone who works in a store could help?

There is two versions of the T-Mobile Galaxy S phone - The Vibrant has a Black back cover and the proximity/light sensor on the left - The Galaxy S 4G has a multi-tone gray back cover and has a front-facing camera to the right of the speaker as well as the same prox/light sensor. The best way to tell is to go to the settings menu and look at the model number under the about phone portion - The T959 is the Vibrant and the T959V is the 4G

Yeah I know about that, but he was asking if there are 2 different versions of the Vibrant. To me it sounds like just the front of his phone is different from the other ones so if that is the case then it would mean that the different one isn't a Galaxy S 4G, but possibly a revision of the Vibrant.

There is only one version of the Vibrant. The Vibrant is the first version of the Galaxy S, the 4G is the second revision of the model.
