Default How to Mustymod

Flashing MustyMod 1_03b

Flashing mustymod will overwrite your recovery so if you are coming from galaxo/galaxhero and want to go back after trying mustymod, you will need to use fastboot etc to re-flash drakaz's recovery back as mustymod uses it's own recovery image.
Be sure to flash a stock II5 firmware back first, using Odin, if you plan on going back to galaxo/galaxhero.

Also note that some people have reported that running mustymod can screw with you google account. I signed up for a new google account to use with mustymod just in case.

--------------------------------------------------

Things you will need:

1: The 1_03b ROM, which you can get here: mustymod Samsung Galaxy Rom
2: Odin, which you can get here: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
3: Make sure you have all the required drivers for the phone installed

If you don't have drivers installed for the phone the thread here has all the info you need:

http://androidforums.com/samsung-i7500/13692-how-odin-galexo-rom-s.html

Read the part called:
How to Install Drivers (ex ADB)

--------------------------------------------------

Extract the mustymod_Eclair_v1_03b.rar achive into a new folder, you should now have the following 4 files:

I7500Eclair-BOOTLOADER.tar
I7500Eclair-CSC.tar
I7500Eclair-PDA.tar
I7500Eclair-PHONE.tar

--------------------------------------------------

Once you have the drivers and files sorted,
start with the phone powered off and NOT plugged into your computer, boot the phone in download mode by pressing Volume Down + OK + Power On
The phone should boot to download mode, now connect the phone to your PC with the USB data cable.

Next we run odin.

Under "select OPS", press the "OPS" button, then navigate to the "Orion.ops" file, it's in the same directory as Odin.
Under "Select images to download", press each button and navigate to where you extracted mustymod_Eclair_v1_03b.rar. Choose each .tar file respectively for: BOOT, PHONE, PDA, CSC

The rest of the settings should be left alone.
Hit the "Start" button, and wait....

Once finished the phone will re-boot into musty's recovery where you should choose: wipe data/factory reset
Once thats done, you can choose re-boot. You should see the fimiliar samsung and android logo's, then a shiny new 2.0
It may take a bit longer to boot than 1.5, it did for me on my galaxy.

Thanks to many of the people on androidforums for all the help they have provided.
If you find anything wrong in this tutorial, please post and I will update as necessary.

I have a question - If i flash to mustymod and after using it if i want to go back to the L3 or k4 or whatever i am on right now, is that possible? And do i need to root the phone to use mustymod ? or is flashing mustymod on the phone same as flashing any other firmware etc?

Does this part of the first post answers your question: "Be sure to flash a stock II5 firmware back first, using Odin, if you plan on going back to galaxo/galaxhero."?

I'm sorry for the newbness but this sentence does not make sense to me. I read it as "I should flash my phone with II5 before I attempt Musty if I plan to go back to my old firmware". Am I interpreting it correctly?

to make it short, you can go back to k4 or l3 firmware after trying musty, only problem is google account that will be screwed so just sign for a new one when on musty.

Yes Mustymod is flashed just like any stock firmware. Put the phone into download mode and flash using odin.

Galaxo/Galaxhero, differs in that you don't use odin, you use fastboot instead to flash a custom recovery, the custom recovery then has the tools to push the ROM update onto the phone.

Exclamation Odin Multi Loader don't find my phone

Hi all!

I want to upgrade my Mustymod from 1.02a to 1.03b, but my Odin don't find my phone.

I already tested on fastboot mode and recovery mode.

I don't know what I have to do!
Someone could help me?!

Thank you!

Odin works only in "download" mode, not fastboot or recovery.

Thumbs up It works!

Hi! Was that!
I'm with 1.03 now!

There are three ways to boot Samsung Galaxy:
  • Fastboot mode: call + power;
  • Recovery mode: vol-down + call + power (hold home + back to exit);
  • Download mode: vol-down + ok + power
Thank you!!
Now, waiting next releases...

That sucks. Im having the dreaded "Fastboot wont work in win7 64" issue. I dual boot linux/windows so I might as well try fastboot in that as well.
