I think you're out of luck. Current version appears to require at least Android 2.2.

Perhaps you should look in the device-specific parts of this forum, and see if there's a custom ROM for your device that is based on a higher version of Android.

I need Instagram for my Samsung Galaxy GT-I5500, that has currently installed Android OS 2.1.

Btw, can i upgrade the OS of this phone to 2.2?

Ooo, i saw today earlier in internet Instagram for Android OS 2.1 but link of Mediafire was broken, in comments all the users thanked the author for that cool stuff. I mean, and i was thinking that there is no Instagram for Android OS 2.1 but after i saw that post i was a little bit fulfilled with positive energy

You'll have to ask among those who are specific to your phone. I know that many Android devices can be upgraded to newer versions of Android. For example, I have a Motorola Triumph, which officially only supports Android 2.2 (Froyo), but I am running 2.3 (Gingerbread) on it. Some of the developers on this site are working on 4.0.x (Ice Cream Sandwich) and 4.1.x (Jelly Bean) ROMs for the Triumph, but as far as I can tell, 2.3 is the latest that exists in a completely functional form for the Triumph. (4.0.x appears to be close, with the only major failing being that the camera doesn't work.)

Look under the device-specific sections on this forum for a section specific to your device, and look for an “All Things Root” section thereunder. That's where you will find discussion of upgrading the firmware on your device.

You might try contacting Instagram themselves, and see if they will make older versions of their client application available.

I suspect that Instagram is making changes to their service and to the application in such a way, however, that a very much older than current version of the application will likely work poorly, if at all.

It won't matter even if you find a version of Instagram that supports 2.1

Instagram image editing renders uses OpenGL for the graphics, so it requires a device with a graphics chip that has OpenGL capabilities. Your phone (GT-I5500) doesn't even have a graphics chip to begin with.

Unless your phone has a graphics chip that GSMArena doesn't list or a new update removed that requirement I'll find that hard to believe. Instagram's app page says it REQUIRES an OpenGL GPU when I downloaded it.

EDIT:

Yup, the notice is still there. So basically your phone has an "unlisted" graphics chip if it is indeed working and you are using the official Instagram app. I have an old Galaxy Fit at home with Android 2.2 and Instagram is listed as incompatible last I checked.

As I said, your phone's complete specs were probably unlisted.

Instagram's programming requires that you need an OpenGL ES capable chip for formatting to work. This means a graphics chip. Otherwise it would crash. Ever tried running a high end game on a netbook without a graphics chip? Kind of like that.

On GSMArena's database, and other places I look, your phone model does not say it has a graphics chip. So basically, its not listed on databases if your phone has a graphics chip or not. But if Instagram works, it probably has one.
