    Can't believe there is not a single thread about how close Drakaz is to release next GAOSP beta with Froyo 2.2 cooked in. So kudos to Drakaz!

    So far, everything that worked on beta2 of Eclair, works on Froyo as well + we're getting more general speed increase + 3d gallery rotation fix + new froyo features (wifi hotspot, USB Tethering, Select Text on Web Pages, in Email, Android Market "Update all", faster browser, ...) + mods (openvpn,...)

    Camera is not there yet, drakaz is fixing all small quirks of Beta3.

    I hope FroYo is worth it, performance and battery-wise

    If it's all a little faster, I might go ahead and say screw you to the camera ;) I had performance trouble with GAOSP beta2 but I'll be happy to try beta3 and stick with it :)

    Hi All, am a new owner of this phone - can anyone tell me if this beta or any of the others can play flash movies - I was told android 2.2 includes flash 10.1

    Thanks

    Got to feel sorry for people who are told to get an Android phone over an iPhone because it has Flash and then get a Galaxy. You forget how little non-technical people know.

    While this is amazing work by Drakaz the camera is a real show-stopper for me. I realise it's not his fault, Samsung and their proprietory software and drivers are preventing him. They really should help him, it'd be win-win for everyone.

    I got a new phone from o2 2 days ago running Donut and I must say i'm surprised how fast it is. Admittedly I've not installed anything yet, but it's much faster than Galaxo 1.6.3.3 which was what I had on my previous unit. Be interesting to see how things fare with Froyo.

    @porga: I had my phone in for repair/replacement, was hoping for a different phone, but they gave me a new i7500 instead (imagine my joy!). So i'm back to Donut and much as I miss 1.6 it is zippy, no dialpad bug, no dropped calls, lock button working fine and battery seems robust. I only wish there was something to complain about (apart from Donut) so I could try to persuade o2 to give me a new phone!

    Baseband: I7500XXII4
    CSC Ver: I7500O2UIK3

    I guess this is a newer build (somehow) than I had before because I remember so many bugs with II4 in the past.

    Alonski,
    it's theoretically possible, but practically someone needs to port htc sense that is required for flash lite.
    full flash 10 requires instructions that our cpu lacks so no go.

    You're last chance is skyfire for flash videos or new phone

    Donated!
    Keep up the great work Drakaz!

    Currently running 1.6.3.3 and it's fantastic. Looking forward to trying GAOSP w/ Froyo.

    Really - that's a shame - but thanks for the info.

    This is my first android phone and I'm really just testing the water - if I need to upgrade later then that's what I will do.

    I would like flash 10 but it's not a show stopper at the moment.

    I will read these forums with interest.

    Thanks guys.

    I do not use camera that much, but I want it to be at disposal when I need it.

    Not to mention QR code buzz, without camera that is a bit of an issue?

    The only reason I want Froyo is for Flash =( I am a Flash programmer and don't want to buy a Nexus One just so that I can get into the mobile business =/

    Don't you think Flash will be terribly slow on Galaxy?

    There will be no flash in GAOSP Beta 3!
    Also, the camera will not go first

    I want Froyo for everything but Flash. I don't need bloody Flash, I'm not going
    to play web games on the phone, nor do I wish to see all the Flash ads. Useful
    Flash content is rare.

    I want to be able to use apps which won't work on 1.5, for example.
