    Hi everyone,

    I rescently purchased i7500 and installed GalaxHero rom (thanks to Kam and Rastaman, you guys rock!). Can anyone please give me some advice on the following

    1) In GalaxHero rom is root enabled automatically or not and how can i actually check if i have root? When I 1st tried it from recovery it gave me an error

    2) Can anyone tell me the application that will enable the bluetooth file transfer. Found 2 on the market, tried both, none works. Also I can't get to install Hero Clock Widget and Full Grid Calendar from the market, prolly cause they are paid apps and I am from Serbia so they aren't available to me. I get an error when trying to open those on the market. Anyone can give me an advice on subtitues for those ?

    Thanks in advance

    about the bluetooth, it depends on the phone.
    last time i checked a certain app (don't remember the name) it wasn't supporting Galaxy.

    1) If i remember corectly root is already enabled. Type 'adb shell' to open a shell and 'id'. If your id is 0 then you are root. Any time an app asks for root a box will flash up on your screen asking if u want to allow it. So its safe to leave it like this. The recovery enable su/disable su is for stock roms

    2) I dont think any 3rd party apps work on the samsung yet :(

    RE you're market issues.. You can install market enabler:

    http://market-enabler.googlecode.com/files/MarketEnabler_v3.0.2-beta.apk

    Save it in the tools directory and type:

    adb install MarketEnabler_v3.0.2-beta.apk

    Then run it on your phone, and save your current config. Then hold down the T-Mobile US one and select it. Now google think you are a T-Mobile user in the US :p

    Apps will install and run fine. When you reboot it will return to your original config. So you need to do this every time u want apps not available in your regions. The config backup is just in case it doesnt revert and u need to for whatever reason.

    I can't get it to work for me. When i click "enable" in the app it says "doing root stuff", then says it has succeeded, to close the app and open the normal market.

    I have a google checkout setup, but when i open the proper market app, i can still only see the free apps...

    ive had this issue aswell even on stock ii5 with su from recovery

    i gave up in the end as i realised it was to do with firmware and google not updating its records to accept auth from the newer firmware
    apps came back after a few days

    however, you are using galax0 i believe so i dont know whats going on there as ii5 is now accepted by google checkout

    can you give an example app?

    Dont quite get what you mean. When i open the market there is no option for paid apps, it just has "applications", "game", "my downloads", or "search". And going into any of them just lists free apps which i can sort by "most popular" or "by date". There's no options or anything.

    In particular id like to get the htc clock widget that galaxo suggests.

    you can filter by paid apps

    go into Market, click applications, click all applications, press the menu button when it starts showing items and click "change view" and select "priced items only"

    Reboot the phone (to make sure market is not running)

    # adb shell into the phone
    adb shell

    # Check you are root - it should return uid-0(root) gid=0(root)
    id

    # Delete your market cache
    rm -r /data/data/com.android.vending/cache

    Now run market enabler, switch to T-Mobile US, and finally open Market.

    You shouldnt have to do that again :) I'm guessing that you didnt do a full wipe before you install galax0

    I did indeed do a full wipe, also when trying to remove the cache it says there's no such file or director (defo typed it right!).

    What do you mean "select T-mobile US" - where / how do you do that? After running marketenabler i just open the market as normal. Should i kill marketenabler first, but leave superuser running??

    I must have a newer version, cuz mine just has a "enable paid apps" and "restore" buttons and that's it. Sure no worries, i'll work it out somehow.

    Cheers anyway
