    My condolence for getting this outdated/run out of time device.

    Did you install gapps (Google apps) for Galaxo (Donut = Android 1.6)???
    Galaxo isn't latest software for Galaxy, GAOSP-2-Beta 3 is (on Froyo = Android 2.2).

    For other carriers you need to unlock your phone, if it isn't already unlocked (not rooted).
    Root gives you complete access to your device hardware (O/C, memory thresholds...)
    With Galaxo configuration you can configure your device (optimized it more).

    Hi, and welcome to the forums!

    You should have the custom recovery on your phone. Most of the procedure is done already. In the guide, you can pick Galaxo or GAOSP, you simply picked the wrong one. ;)

    Here's what you should do, in order (it's really not complicated):

    -Download the GAOSP beta 3 zip file
    -Download the GAOSP Google apps (Gapps)
    -Place both of them on your phone
    -Reboot your phone in recovery mode
    -Wipe your phone
    -Select apply any zip and apply the GAOSP zip file
    -Reboot in recovery again
    -Select "Fix package permissions"
    -Select "apply any zip" and apply the GAOSP google apps
    -Reboot normally. ;)

    Which gapps package did you try to install??? I hope you didn't try installing this gapps on Galaxo.

    Skip that one and go for GAOSP Gapps light directory and choose from there. Or if you want full gapps for GAOSP then download it from this link and scroll down to [Before installing google apps] and that download link.

    i tried following the same steps as mentioned above and with the above gapps link its shows installation failed so i could not use that file which the moderator gave above your reply...

    Before installation did you choose "fix package permissions"?
    If you didn't then the installation will always fail.

    and is there any other thing available for my phone other than this Galaxo or GAOSP ??

    Did you try reflashing your ROM (you have a option in recovery to do a half wipe (it will not delete your apps), or go with the full)??? Sometimes that works/helps.

    And your last question. Yes, there is. But... isn't so far developed as this and there is no more development on it. So your choice.

    And by the way. Galaxo is based on Android 1.6 (donut), and GAOSP on the latest Android 2.2 aka Froyo for GAOSP 2 Beta 3 and Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread for GAOSP 3 Beta 1 (just released). For more info look @ this forum :cool:

    Thank you Lelouch and sorry about the late reply =]

    Gingerbread 2.3.4 - 0519 Nightly how is this for i7500l ? and what are the issues we might face using this...anyone ?

    Well, some have problems flashing the new Recovery (version 6.6.0) on the unit. You will need Recovery version 6.6.1 (fix made by bukington) or wait until Drakaz returns from his work in Belgium (this Tuesday).

    GAOSP 3 - nightly is based on Gingerbread aka Android 2.3.4. This release is fastest so far from other GAOSP releases. Bad thing is that it doesn't have working camera, yet. It has better memory management, more stable then Froyo and other goodies (like theme chooser).

    So you have two choices: go with flashing Recovery 6.6.1 (will need working fastboot) and flash this ROM or wait until Drakaz returns and use GalaxyUpdater to do it for you.

    I was one of the lucky one who flashed Recovery 6.6.0 via GalaxyUpdater and had no problems with it. While others report being unable to go to full Recovery mode (only mini-recovery). So, in the end it's your call.

    I'm stuck on the mini-recovery too and too lazy to do anything about it. I didn't even know it was an issue, I guess I've been out of the loop on all things gingerbread. I've been using an official Samsung firmware for months now, a few more days of waiting can't be that bad. ;)

    'cause you're lazy and want the easy way out. :p

    It appears that today all users want is for GalaxyUpdater to do the job. Meaning, they're to lazy to use the old fashioned way - using fastboot (I miss the old days :( ).

    P.S: I'm the lucky guy who flashed it via GalaxyUpdater free version 1.08 and not the new one 1.09 (talk about lazy). And I also didn't know it was an issue until I read it on drakaz forum (people complaining like usual).
    P.S: what do you think about Dialer2 suggestion from Obi?
  16. DaSchmarotzer

    DaSchmarotzer Blame it on me VIP Member

    I actually used fastboot, I've never even installed Galaxy Updater. ;) Since I went back to a Samsung firmware I would have had to root it before using the Dakaz app anyway.

    I don't care much for the dialer as I always use my contacts instead. What exactly is the difference?

    It's open sourced and that's for starters.

    Apparently it's faster then the stocked, but as I noticed only a little faster. And I don't like how it looks (I'm a sucker for beauty :p ). Maybe with further optimization it could run even faster on Galaxy. Either way I don't care about the speed of the dialer (will not die in a few seconds anyway). But it's Obi's and the teams call on this. Obi just cares for opinions of GAOSP users and what they thoughts are.
