    Im fairly new to all the updates and jailbreak for android. I have an older android that Ive been curious about it having any sort of updates or anything. Its a Samsung Galaxy GT-i7500L and its firmware version is 1.5. Helps appreciated:)

    there are a couple custom ROMs available, the most notable being Galaxo (Android 1.6) and GAOSP (Android 2.3). Since I haven't used my Galaxy in a while, I don't remember exactly what works and what doesn't in each version. Maybe the member Lelouch does, he's pretty knowledgeable. ;)

    Since the MegaUpload website was taken down recently, many links might be broken so it might be hard to find the correct files.

    Why did you want to update? You won't get much more performance with an update and things like the camera might not work.

    The device has too little RAM to "support" newer versions of Android, so Samsung never did much for it.

    Correction, camera does work. Better to say it works on Galaxo, GAOSP 2 Beta 3, GAOSP 3 Beta 1 or nightly (for Beta 1 and nightly there seems to be problem with camera firmware mystically disappearing and making camera not working - for some users). In GAOSP 1 there are many things that don't work.

    Your only choices are:

    1. Galaxo - if you want a taste of Donut (Android 1.6) on your device. The best responsive and speedy ROM you can get for I7500. Be warned; you will have not so many/little applications to choose from on the Market. Why? Cause many devs are now developing for Android 2.x and higher.

    2. GAOSP - if you want to sacrifice some speed and responsiveness and you want "more" applications to choose from the Market and try a taste of Froyo or Gingerbread (based on CyanogenMod 6 & 7). You can return some of the responsiveness by using class 6 (or higher) microSD card. Turning on choices like swap, JIT, compcache, fudge-swap (available only in GAOSP 3 nightly),... There is dialer lag, but 2D games are gonna work and some 3D ones.

    P.s: if you're going for GAOSP choose GAOSP 2 Beta 3 if you're using camera if not GAOSP 3 nightly (not Beta 1, 'cause the nightly is the latest and stable one). Hope it helps.

    If you have anymore questions, just shoot.
