    Dear all,
    Are there any requirements for flashing the i7500 to galaxo? Cause I can't use the recovery (any version) to flash the galaxo to my phone. Recovery hasn't any response on operations wipe, flash, rooting, fixing permission...etc. Anyway, I found I can do fixing permission with adb command to execute the script "fix_permissions.sh" in the ./tmp/RECTOOLS in recovery mode.
    Unfortunately, fixing the permission can not help for the wiping and flashing operations. the operations don't work also.
    I have also tried to flash by using "flash_image" command in /tmp/RECTOOLS, but I can't identify the flashing partition, the following is the result of df command.

    Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really want to flash galaxo...

    C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb shell df

    Just follow any of the guides avaliable and your done?

    I don't get what you are trying to say with "I can't use the recovery"

    Thanks porga!

    I have tried again by your info. Still failed!!! :( I can only upgrade my phone through ODIN, I have tried too many times, I like galaxo but I can't use it... very sad.. I think it time to say good bye with galaxo and stay with the latest version I7500_XEJC6_XEJC6_SERJC6_Russia_SER, may be my phone is different from your phone cause I bought at march of this year or Drakaz didn't handle some cases when writing the recovery. Anyway, thanks for your reply!! The following is partition info and the log of my recovery, may it give you some hints to solve my problem.
    Finally, I hope Drakaz that will release the odin version for 1.6.3.3....

    You need to have the appropriate version of recovery (4.6.4) for 1.6.3.3.

    Download the recovery file and just replace RECTOOLS from your internal SD with the one you just downloaded. If you have done the "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" thing already then you don't need to repeat that step again unless you have flashed a factory ROM recently. Otherwise if your phone is unrooted, you will need to press (vol down, OK, END) and using the Android SDK tools, run the command "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" with your phone hooked to the computer.

    Boot into recovery, WIPE, FLASH ANY ZIP (pick the galaxo 1.6.3.3 file), RESTORE GAPPS, reboot.

    Note: to restore GAPPS, you must have the appropriate SAMSUNG.tar file on your internal SD card. See draka's forum here for info on that: http://www.drakaz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=98 someone had posted a link in there somewhere.

    Should work. If not see my other post here: http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-i7500/116094-galax0-1-6-3-3-help-needed.html

    So long as you have a i7500 or GT-i7500 you should be fine. There are other i7500 variants (commonly sold in latin america) that require extra work to root if I remember correctly. Please list the model shown behind the battery cover to eliminate any other possibilities.
