    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...

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

    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.

    not to sound like a jerk but , i just put cm7 os 2.3.7 on my friends crappy ideos u8150 last night mad :mad: ....if it can be done for that crappy phone , it can surely be done for the gravity smart right?

    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. :(
