    Hi everyone,

    Have just purchased a new Galaxy Y here in China and restored to original factory settings however everything is in Chinese which isn't a problem as I can change the language to English however all the default Google Apps are missing and replaced with Chinese equivalents it seems so I'm unable to use them.

    So... how can I restore it to a version of Android something functional for me? I'm on mac os x lion with vmware for any windows apps I need and am computer literate enough to attempt anything like flashing a device / updating a rom but have no idea where to start with this. Having read some docs on Odin but they made little sense at first because I don't quite know what steps I need to take in order to carry out this task.

    Any pointers would help greatly, thanks in advance!
