    This is what we get for buying unpopular phones, even if the phone itself isn't half bad.

    An awesome member over at XDA forums named comoc85 dumped the /system/app/ folder before signing into anything and before any mods were performed..

    what this means is, those that uninstalled apps or deleted them, and wish they could restore them, CAN...

    [Q] Samsung Gravity Smart SGH-T589 - no roms? no kernels? no recoveries? - Page 2 - xda-developers

    be sure to thank him :D

    edit: direct download link --> systemappdump.rar

    An actual firmware image is on samfirmware.com and instructions for flashing it are at

    Recovering your Samsung Gravity SMART - Gravity Smart Wiki

    I think an ICS port is feasible because other Samsung phones with very similar hardware have ICS unofficial ports. I don't know if it's something I can do, but I'm looking at it, at least.

    There's no technical reason that it can't run GB (or even ICS)... but it's a combo of being an unpopular phone and Samsung not giving a d**n. I'm looking into it and if I have any success, I'll post at thread here and @ XDA. I wouldn't hold your breath though ;)

    has anyone tried getting our rom and exact specs into the android emulator for testing? it may be leading down an already taken or impossible path but it was just a thought

    The emulator is fairly worthless for ROM development, but I actually have a broken phone that I disassembled and found out that it uses very similar hardware to other phones (notably the Galaxy Ace). I'm trying to find a Gingerbread kernel source for the Ace that will actually compile but I'm not having a lot of luck. :(
