    I need some advice, or a nudge in the right direction. I have atm XII5 firmware and i'm extremly unhappy with the galaxy (its slow, sluggish, needs to reboot occationally etc) and instead of smashing it into a wall i feel like giving a shot at a new firmware (a firmware also include an update to the android system aswell, right?).

    The choice lies between XEFJ2 and latest GAOSP. And as i understand, XEFJ2 is based on android 1.6 and GAOSP is based on 2.1. The only thing i care about is the phone becoming faster responding, have wifi working and have access to the free marked, which gaosp seems to be capable of delivering. Should i give the latest gaosp a test and if i do, is it hard flashing the phone to gaosp (just using odin is enough or will i need to wipe it first?).

    Unfortunately, all aosp builds are not able to access free, but secured apps. There are many of those, twidroid, layar, sipdroid, ...

    Build 07 workes fine, to bad Drakaz is not keeping binaries synced to source. We're waiting sources of 1.6.

    I downloaded donut a week ago and apart from having a fit due to no 3G, and then eventually finding out how to add APN for my telco, I've found 1.6 to be fast, stable and exactly what I was looking for. Now that I've added lot's of apps to customize it to my way of working, it's perfect for me. The only thing is keeping your eye on the apps working as they can really chew up the battery.

    I made some research on gasop and as i understand week8 is not working and the battery time is bad(or worse?) than usual. and i think the battery life is already terrible as it is, so i see no reason to make it worse...

    Mustymod caught my eye since it runs on 2.1 and through odin which i'm a little familiar with. But it seems that no matter custom rom (musty, galaxo, gasop etc) the market won't work fully?? why is that?

    because google blocks any unknown firmware from accessing payed and free(secured) apps.
