Default Android 2.x on Galaxy

Welcome to the official Android 2.x thread on the Galaxy!

It has been confirmed multiple times that Samsung would not update the phone any further than Android 1.6. Their reason? They stated hardware, but when other phones with the same specs got updates, they simply said that they wouldn't do it.

So this means we'll never get 2.x on the Galaxy? Not at all! We are lucky to have developers working on porting 2.2 on the phone!

In fact, Mustymod ported 2.0 to the phone, but a lot of stuff didn't work, such as Wifi, Bluetooth, the camera, etc. It is not really a viable option for serious users, but it shows that it is possible to run 2.x on the Galaxy! You can still try it, look around if you are interested. Musty didn't finish the ROM, in fact he kind of disappeared. But it was still great to have him do that.

That's it? NO.

All of our hopes are now in the hands of Drakaz and other developpers, which I'll cite when their project is over. Drakaz is the one who did Galaxo, the best ROM for the Galaxy (and the custom recovery!), so we know he's a good developer, and he sure listens to feedback. He does it all for free, but he is accepting donations.

What's their project? It's GAOSP. I think it stands for Galaxy Android Open Source Project. As of right now, GAOSP is a working 2.2 ROM still in development. Just like Mustymod, some things are not working yet, I'm talking about the camera, bluetooth, and a few more things, but it's getting better and better. There was one beta made available (for free, as usual), but there has been progress made since then.

RECENT PROGRESS:

June 9th 2010: 3D is working! Live wallpapers, Gallery3D, Neocore, etc, all work! We're hoping for camera soon and some new stuff!

June 25th 2010: 2nd Beta available NOW! Check drakaz.com for instructions and the changelog!

July 23rd 2010: GAOSP is now based on Froyo! Nightly builds are now going to be released, starting today.

August 23rd 2010: There has been some development with the camera on GAOSP! Thanks to Nopy, the I7500 can now take 5MP pictures on Froyo! Video works too! (It's not perfect though, but it's getting better and better as I'm writing this! )

September 21st 2010: Camera has been working for a while now, thanks to Nopy and the team!

Websites:

drakaz.com
GAOSP on Google code
Drakaz github
Nopy's website

There's still hope for 2.x on the Galaxy, but not from Samsung! (don't forget that the ROM made by drakaz is better than the firmwares made by Samsung )

(The first replies down there might not make much sense now that the post has been modified.)

It was posted earlier, but in the sticky thread at the top of the forum so you may have missed it.

Some more info from an Italian user testing the ROM here... Google Translate

Absolutely wonderful news!!! DD Best news since I bought my Galaxy. Will wait for wifi and other things to work. I'm curious to see how they made the baseband communication.

edit: nvm what was written here, misunderstood.
No multitouch yet it seems, or no apps inside to use that. No root needed but it flashes ur phone with completely custom firmware, based on Android sources instead of Samsung's firmware.

Edit 3: best thing at this moment is the new unlocking screen

Tried it and it shows promise, however too many vital features are missing. Will use it when they are added though. Need a phone to use atm so I had to reflash galaxo and couldnt try it as long as i hoped to.

The last picture is really promising. You can see it says 35MB of free memory. I wonder if that's with no killed apps (aka after a standard boot with gmail, calendar and widgets running). I never get even close to 35MB. I mean, I do after i kill the unnecesarry apps but then it drops down. It usually runs between 20 and 25MB free memory.

Pretty much the only reason I want 2.0 is for multitouch support - is this likely to come with that, or are they literally just trying to make it function exactly like 1.5 (albeit with the new apps it allows such as new market and goggles)??

without samsung modifying melfaz drivers for multitouch, we won't be getting any multitouch on 2.x. but who knows :?

what i'm expecting mostly from 2.0 is pptp support, new market, google apps (new maps, goggles,...), bluetooth data (send any file via bt), different timers for turning off screen and lock phone, contacts improvements (private mobile,...), html5 support in the browser

By that do you mean it includes 2.0, or Flash will only come in 2.1?

I don't think any device upgrade will be to anything other than 2.1 (or later).
Google says that the only differences between 2.0.1 & 2.1 are that the live wallpaper api are enabled and working, no other major changes...

At the moment if he'd said they were updating to 1.6 I'd be a great deal happier than I am now! If this pans out I'll be pretty happy

Also, surely this is Sammy Dutch not Italian? It's a ropey translate tho...
