I'm still getting good service from my Vibrant's considering their age and price. I bought them used $200 several yrs. ago. I'm running CM 10.1.1 (4.2.2)vibrantmtd stable with a "BetterKat" dark theme and gapps-jb-2013812. This combo all works flawlessly.
I'm contemplating switching to a used GS-3 as I could use the added RAM. I'm vision impaired and use "talk back" with HQ TTV. All the new bloated apps are getting a tad sluggish on the ole' Vib workhorse with the accessibility running in the background. But I'll keep it around for my spare. It was a great purchase!
In order for you folks to upgrade your firmware you're going to have do some studying and root your phone, then flash it with the custom ROM of your choice. I'd recommend the CyanogenMod ROMS.
A good resource to start woodshedding with would be
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=849028. There is a Vibrant bible on that site also. Say heck no, to the con$umer product treadmill and surveillance bloatware. Peace!

One of the best smartphones out there. I haven't upgraded to the new galaxy simply because this one delivers everything you would want. The screen is amazing, too! I've had it for over 2 years now, and it's been great.
