    The latest GAOSP nightly is a very solid 2.2 for the i7500. It does have bugs but no worse than the official firmwares :D Plenty of info on how to install those right here :)

    dude just roam around this forum. I am sure you will be a pro within 2 days. everything you need is already there in this forum already explained.. so just go on reading the forum.. I am sure its worth it.. and if you get stuck anywhere be free to ask we are always ready to explain.

    for the time being you have many options for upgrading. three out of them feels best to me
    1.galaxo rom(its a custom Tom based on donut.phone becomes very smooth with this)
    2.Gaosp(custom rom based on 2.2 froyo. still in development phase.but now its pretty much usable)
    3. firmware by Samsung jc6(latest based on donut)
    full instructions how to install all of these are already present in this forum. so happy reading and happy Modding.

    I think he wants Android 2.x, so no Galaxo for him (at least for now), but maybe I'm wrong. The latest nightly is all you need, if you want to have the latest Android on your phone. The camera works, effects also, camcorder to, torch,...

    It worth using it right now? (GAOSP)

    Or it's better to wait for a more stable version?

    Yup, it's quite good. I only suggest not to use the 3d gallery because it's slow as molasses (there's a link to the 2d gallery .apk floating around on drakaz's forum)

    First look in Settings>About phone about the version of GAOSP you have.
    If it is, go to Settings>Wireless & networks>Wi-Fi settings, click Menu button, choose advanced and change Wi-Fi sleep policy to never.
    Off course if you're using Wi-Fi that is.
