    Does anyone know of this newer phone (in Canada on Rogers) the Samsung Galaxy Q? part of Rogers new class called Smartphone Lite (so that people can get these smartphones and aren't forced to get data plans) Runs Froyo 2.2.2 on 800Mhz cpu.. looking for help on flashing rom/kernel now that it's rooted but I can't find any specific help for this exact phone here or anywhere else. Anyone know anything about it? or where to go to get help? Is there another Galaxy phone that is basically the same thing but different name? I know it was originally supposed to be the "Tab" but that ended up being just Android Tablet and not the smartphone that this Q is...Any help would be great!

    You can stop looking there are none. Even on CyanogenMod forum people asking the question get no response. The phone specs are too low for modders to 1) get this phone, 2) Put time and effort on a low end phone.

    ok thanks for the help..i thought that might be the case..but what about the ONE ROM ON THIS SITE.. and maybe the other few that are out there.. do you know at all if I can OVERCLOCK THIS PHONE with THE ROM on this site or with others? that's basically all i need to know now that it's basically confirmed that there are no other kernels or roms to be created. thanks

    From what i saw the only rom available has nothing to offer on that side. The image is based on stock so no new kernel. He maybe themed it a bit but his rom is just some removed apps and put in his own flavored one.

    EDIT: Based on the post on that one rom no new kernel are out since Samsung has not released the source. You can't overclock and probably never will.

    Modders might not be interested in a Galaxy Q but people who have one might be:

    Samsung Open Source Release Center
    Do a search for SGH-T589R
    You'll get the opensource package.

    BTW: linux is always gpl and so the phone's linux source always has to be published somewhere. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
    Android itself is also open sourced and is available at the android site.
