Default 2.2 Froyo (GAOSP) on the i7500?

Is there a tutorial on how to put Froyo on the Samsung Galaxy i7500?. I've searched all over Google only finding sources indicating that it's possible to do, without explaining or giving a link towards a tutorial on how to do it. I've seen videos on youtube of people booting froyo on their Galaxy's... no links to how to do it on there either!. Any tips will be greatly appreciated!.

Thanks Shorrack. So how do you like Froyo so far with this nightly release for the galaxy?. Is it pretty stable?. So I suppose by following the first tutorial in the first link you then take one of the nightly builds and use the same methods in the first tutorial to install froyo?. I've installed 1.6 on the android before using galaxo, but im just curious, i am still a noob at this kind of lol but smarter than most haha thanks man.

Pretty stable for me, I've been on it exclusively since the previous nightly (18 september or so, haven't looked back). I only wish I could get bluetooth to work (both bluetooth ftp and bluetooth phone don't work for me).

Drakaz is working on the BT thingy, I guess he'll fix that before he releases beta3.

EDIT: however, even though I love the galaxy with GAOSP, I've been playing with a HTC Desire with 'official' 2.2 ROM and there's a world of difference between this and that. I still wish I'd waited a little longer and payed a little (!) more for the Desire.

For some is stable (I'm in that group). You can give it a go, but before installing do a Nandroid back up just in case it isn't working for you or you're unsatisfied for some reason.
Anyway we're waiting patiently for Beta 3 release or maybe the next nightly.

I've only tested the latest nightly that it works and looks nice, waiting on the beta3 I guess(porting my darktheme for it when it comes :P).

The easiest way of installing GAOSP or Galaxo, and to support Drakaz, is to use Drakaz's app "Galaxy Updater", you can buy it in the market for 2.5 euros and it does everything with one click (download newest nightly or galaxo version and recovery, install newest recovery and install the custom rom of your election), totally worth it!!!

Well, if it's about getting really lazy, you can root your phone with SuperOneClick, easy-peasy! [APP]SuperOneClick v1.5.1 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App, Get UNLOCK code) - xda-developers

Or you may also use Easy Root by Drakaz. But your device must be detected before you can use it.

I have a i7500L (Brazil) since 2009 December.

Yesterday I picked up some courage and rooted / updated to GAOSP.

The proccess is very simple.

To root, I followed this step-by-step (ubuntu): [Galaxy i7500] simple rooting guide (without Galaxo/Galaxhero roms) | Android Wiki

After that, I bought GalaxyUpdater from market and, first, update to GALAXO, just to know how it is (and it is really fast). And then, to the last GAOSP nighlybuild (100% usable for me, and with much more improvements, but slower than galaxo).

Until now, I'm very happy with my "new phone" with GAOSP. Now I'm thinking about to buy one external card and allow compache, just to see if it improves the overall performance.

So I encouraged myself and started to root my device using easyroot. All went ok, but after 2-WINDOWS-Tools.bat(don´t actually know if it had any effect) screen showed that nice traffic sign. Then it booted and everything was gone. Even the language had changed from Finnish to English. Fortunately I did sync my contacts first, and learned how to localize...
I know I have to install all my apps again after updated (if I ever get there...) to Galax0. But was this just a big crash or is that funny old stoneage gadget rooted now?
And one more silly question. I was just about to buy Galaxy Updater via the phone, but the app is to run in PC right? Doesn´t matter though, if the phone can´t be connected the app is useless anyway :-)

if you are ok with 1.5, why change it?

My phone felt so slow, I couldnt resist trying it. Now, its brand new and starting to love it.

But now I've tried the galaxy S, that machine is sexy.

specjr: I sort of felt like that when I went to flash on 1.6. Once I got over that, on went Galaxo. Didn't take too long for GAOSP to appear. Just hold your breath and go for it. It sounds intimidating, but in the end its easier than it sounds. Enjoy !

I tried rooting with SuperOneClick, failed. Tried few times with Easyroot, but there must be something I do wrong. I don´t get "root this device" or "reboot", only thing is a caution sign and the device boots. Not rooted, but all loaded apps, contacts and messages are gone and language changed to English. Instructions are simple but I seem to be more simple...

So i7500 is able to upgrade to froyo?
After upgrade, does the i7500 has full flash support?
If there is a way to upgrade i7500 by rooting, is this method available for other mobile phone like Galaxy 5?

-- Yes, by using ODIN, Just grab any of your formwares from here. You have to work on the drivers first though.

First things first.

If you're thinking on official update to Froyo from Sam*censored then "NO".
But thanks to Drakaz and his team the Galaxy (i7500) is on its way to receive Froyo. Be warned, Froyo for Galaxy, aka GAOSP by Drakaz is still in progress (Nightly releases only) - still waiting for Beta 3 - but stable enough. BT doesn't work yet (making and receiving calls) like it should, but one day it will.

Flash is a "NO", already wrote by sqx100 in his post above.
For that use Skyfire browser or get yourself another phone.

Easyroot by drakaz does it pretty flawlessly dude.
Just ensure that you have the drivers in place ( Thats the trickiest part). Once over with the drivers just fire up the .bat files. I think you have to do it once and then choose 'Root this device from the recovery menu'

I rooted my phone last time using this method after flashing it with Odin ie.
