    GALAXO 1.6.3

    1.6.3 :
    - New 2.6.9 custom kernel (netfilter, Compcache 6.2, BFS, Swap, Cgroups, VPN(tun.ko), CPU Freq : 19Mhz/710Mhz)
    - Overclocking to 614Mhz/710Mhz (GalaxoConf)
    - Default min freq fixed at 19Mhz (preserves battery in sleep mode)
    - Dialer theme from Eclair
    - Audio Volume hack
    - Thresholds tunning
    - Compcache tunning
    - Few other things, don't remember
    1.6.2
    - based on JC6
    1.6.1
    - Restore original SMS/MMS app
    - Fixed phone issue

    Looks like 1.6.3 is going to be badass!! There seems to be a nice list of changes in this version! I havent tested it yet but I will as soon as i finish playing with Galaxhero haha

    no, you need a wipe.

    I have tried this, the core keeps quitting without a wipe.

    I updated without a wipe and so far so good. probably depends what you installed in the meantime....

    edit: Dialer force closes. Off to wipe I go :)

    Whenever I try to restore g-apps it gets aborted. I had no problem to do it with 1.6.2, I also wipe before applying update.zip

    I get the following, anyone got any tips?

    -- Restoring Google apps
    -- Press HOME to confirm, or
    -- any other key to abort..
    -- Restore started...
    .Fichier mise

    i just updated to jc6 and galaxo 1.6.2 a week ago and i have installed only my essentials while waiting for 1.6.3 so i didnt mind wiping
    after installing 1.6.3 and setting the cpu to 710 it feels like a new phone :)
    no lag no nothing, i had alot of issues with 1.6.2 with apps hanging and lagging
    but now i'm loving it
    will let you know about battery time in the next few days

    Without wipe, after enabling OC to 610mhz the phone feels snappier. Usually I wipe before update so it's difficult to compare, but I think this is more trustworthy.

    I think samsung.tar is for restoring gapps as update.zip(galaxo1.6.2) does not contain google apps.

    Follow these instructions exactly (see 2nd post), you can start at B3

    Note:

    update.zip is the galaxo 1.6.3 zip file renamed.

    SAMSUNG.tar is your JC6 update renamed.

    If you're having problems getting those files over, mount the SD card on your computer and just copy them over in windows explorer.


    ***You do not need to enable root, as this happens automatically with Galaxo.***

    Hope that helps

    hi
    use this Flash rom Galaxo 1.6.2 and 1.6.1 - Windows tutorial - Samsung Galaxy
    use the 1.6.2 only with the 1.6.3

    be sure to download his samsung.tar
    worked great for me

    No they don't, they say you have to use Recovery 4.6.2 (Recovery 5 is for GAOSP and will not work, it won't restore the G.Apps).

    All you have to do is replace the RECTOOLS.tar.gz file with the 4.6.2 version though.
