Default boot big problem after flashing

Hello everyone

I made a rom flashing on I7500 galaxy as it is written in the tutorial and everything went fine but the boot screen runs non-stop for a all long time.
I can not do anything because I do not know, I can only remove the battery and then try to boot, but always the same.
I tried to set downloda mode but can not, how to solve this please help
Can I somehow set the download mode and make a flash script II5 again?
What can I do now?
Thank you.

if nothing else works then i would say

put your phone in download mode and reflash firmware via Odin

then retry flashing galaxo

and i should tell you there is a galaxo 1.6.1 now its based on Android 1.6

new recovery to go with it recovery 4.6.1

and it is based on the JB2 Firmware

The problem is to make a flashing rom with Windows Vista because Vista is not made something good with II5.tar file.
I do not know what or how to fix it.

To restore the g. apps, you need the II5 update file on your phone sd card renamed as ii5

That is what the apps are restored from

RellikZephyr
I copied the file II5.tar in internal sd card (8gb) with the update zip
there is a recovery image.tar
I have already tried many combinations but nothing.
I can not believe that this happens only to me.
Now I tried it and recovery img.4.2, 4.3,4.4 and 4.6.1 and still nothing.
I use a laptop Toshiba Satellite A210-10W with Windows Vista 32bit Service Pack 2
I have no problem with the ADB and the driver is properly visible in Device Manager.

Peko70,

I suppose that Vista changed extension of II5.tar into II5.tar.something.
You should enable show file extension in OS
[QUOTE]
Show or hide file name extensions

Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.

Click the View tab, and then, under Advanced settings, do one of the following:

To hide file extensions, select the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.

To display file extensions, clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.

/QUOTE]

And then try to restore G.apps.

Also I have a problem.
When i have installed galaxo rom my built in modem wont work anymore. I ve tryed to query modem but unssucsessfuly. Any help with this matter would be appreciated. Thanks and regards, from Montenegro

A file name extension is a set of characters added to the end of a file name that determine which program should open it. Follow these steps to choose whether Windows displays these file extensions.

Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.

Click the View tab, and then, under Advanced settings, do one of the following:

Peko,

II5.tar ti ne mora ići u "android-sdk-tools", ubaciš ga na internu karticu pomoću Windowsa. Pokrenes s telefona mount usb i kopiras ga na flesku /sd card/ onda iz recovery moda "Volume down + Call + end call" pokrenes komandu restore G.apps. i potvrdis na Home dugme.

U ovom slučaju ti ne treba adb i nikakve komande, već sve radiš iz recovery moda na telefonu.

Problem je u tome što koristim vistu(pogledaj postove od prije) a vista radi neku grešku u file ii5.tar i kad kopiram taj file sa windows explorerom na karticu jednostavno aplikacija resore g.apps ne vidi taj file.
sad te pitam jeli ovaj postupak koji si naveo gori rješava ovaj problem?

Ajmo od početka da bi provjerili situaciju,

Skinuo si sa neta fajl pod nazivom GTi7500I7500VIAII5I7500XXII5I7500XXII5_500.zip /pretpostavljam FUS downloaderom/
Kad raspakujes ovaj fajl u njemu ti se nalazi I7500XXII5-PDA-CL64494-REV5(VIA).tar . Ovaj fajl preimenujes u II5.tar i ubacis u sd card.

Ukoliko Vista ima problem sa extenzijom ovog fajla probaj da skines 7-zip i sa njim da raspakujes arhivu.

Znači ja sumnjam da je kod tebe vista sama preimenovala extenziju u zip ili nesto drugo što adroid ne poznaje i zbog toga ti ne radi komanda restore G.apps i ako sam u pravu, neće ti raditi ni komanda iz adb toolsa pošto je taj fajl nepoznat za andoid sistem.

Provjeri ove korake pa mi javi.

P.S.
translation for english users

Let start from the beginning to check all,

You need to download file GTi7500I7500VIAII5I7500XXII5I7500XXII5_500.zip /with samsung FUS/
rename archive file I7500XXII5-PDA-CL64494-REV5(VIA).tar. into II5.tar and copy to root of internal SD card.

If Vista has a problem with this file extenzion try to use 7-zip to extract archive.

I supose that Vista has problem with -tar extension and rename itself into the zip or something else that not known to adroid and therefore command restore G.apps dont work and if I am right, any commands from ADB tools will be unssucsessful since the changed file is unknown for android system.

Check these steps and tell me.

this will be translated soon
skinuo sam nekoliko puta i7500xxii5 i to sa Jdownloader-om koristio sam i 7zip za rapakiravanje preimenovao sam u II5.tar i prebacio na sd karticu.
svejedno stalno ista stvar.
sad mi je gore ovaj moderator rasta ili kako se več zove rekao ako sam dobro razumio da moram taj file prebaciti sa adb.exe.
ako upišem u cmd cd c:\android-sdk\tools\adb.exe pokrene se comandna linja adb.exe ali što sad?
naime čitao sam po forumima da su ljudi imali problema sa vistom ali ne znam kako su to rješili

O.k.

This should be right command, (you have to be in recovery mode)

adb push II5.tar /sdcard/

Or in WIN os : adb push II5.tar \sdcard\

and then try to restore G.apps

Best regards,

I tried the command adb push II5.tar \ sdcard \ and now writes:
"II5.tar can not stat: No such file or directory
where must be II5.tar file?
in android-sdk/tools?

Hi, I am very new to android so this may be a stupid question but want to make sure before I proceed. The steps to update the firmware seem fairly straight forward, thank you for making it easy to understand. My questions concern the information here.

1. I can just update the firmware i.e put the II5 firmware on and nothing else that this post describes, is that correct?

2. The other question is will updating to O2 II5 firmware lock my cellphone? I am in Canada and I have a cell from Australia which is unlocked. Just wondering if updating it to the UK firmware will cause me any issues. And no this is not the Bell I7500L its the original I7500 phone.

Thanks for all your help

1. you don't need to do galexo (or whatever it's called, seems to sometimes be spelled with a, sometimes with e...), just vanilla firmware
flashing a new firmware will erase your phone's memory (not sd, but apps and settings), which you'll need to restore

2. no, it won't lock the phone. you'll wanna remove the csc (depending on the firmware package it'll be a file called cache.img or *.csc)

The new recovery image will be flashed,


I just installed II5 in with android version 1.5.

I struck up with the next step that is " Installing recovery image and galaxy ROM".

1) With the phone plugged in via USB and phone off - Yes done by switching off the device and connecting device with laptop.
2) go to command prompt by typing in cmd in search - or run box in - If i type cmd in search / run bar ( space ) the curser is blinking where i can start typing any commond.
3) and cd to the tools directory thenWhere i can see this and proceed ?? :-?

Even if i success in doing above. I have another question
4 ) Long-press the two Call buttons on the phoneis that OK button and call button ??

Can anybody suggest how can I backup G.Apps??? I am on recovery 0.4.4 & I can't find any option in here.

I am stuck after the final reboot at the android booting page. & When I try restore G.Apps it fails & says, "Restore aborted : see /tmp/recovery.log".

Thanks in advance

You are pressing the "menu"-button. The "home" button is the oval one between "back" and "end call".

Hi! When you have the custom recovery you're done with all the hard stuff.

1. You don't have to bother with any of those yet, and if you want to know most should be quite easy to search for and fins an explanation.
2. You don't have root access until you either enable it using the recovery menu, or until you flash a custom ROM with built in root.
3. Galaxo 1.6.3.4 is definitely the most stable Galaxy ROM today.

Nandroid backup is a wonderful thing as it allows you to get back to the exact state you were in before starting flashing ROMs or themes. Just remember that any messages or the like you have received since you took the last backup will be gone if you revert.

Hope this help.

Very sorry to bump this year-old thread, but I've having a little trouble. Once I put the phone into download mode and hit start in Odin, it does its thing and says "4/4 finished". And then the phone starts to boot like normal, but then it gets stuck forever on the "android" screen. The phone still turns on normally, but once again gets stuck on that screen. I can boot into recover mode, but all the screen shows is a picture of a phone with a exclamation point behind it. I can also enter fast boot mode. Which leads me to believe it is not entirely bricked?

Anyhelp is greatly appreciated, and once again sorry for bumping this extremely old thread, I found it in the "List of Useful Resources" sticky.

Ok, so somehow it fixed its self, when I was in recovery mode I hit a button, I think it was endcall(bottom left). And then it just booted. It running 1.5 and has al the factory apps and stuff.
