New version for Galaxo : 188.8.131.52 ! What
great job drakaz, now take a rest untill froyo sources
I wish he'd work on GAOSP instead
great, flashing again! =)
lol no one check the root section where i had already posted this
hugh thanks to drakaz
Galaxo_V184.108.40.206_PATCH_from_220.127.116.11.zip also worked on my Galaxo 18.104.22.168.
I could use wireless tether as AP, and share to other WIFI devices on my i7500 now.
the only thing not worked yet in Galaxy is Bluetooth.
go go drakaz.
Why is Drakaz still playing with 1.6 Galaxo when we now have all we need to complete GAOSP 2.1 and then Galaxo 2.1?
after update with 22.214.171.124 my gps stop working
we have almost all we need, we just need sources for camera, gpu, bluetooth and what not modules...
I'm on 1.6.3 and want to upgrade to get the sound & no sleep bug fixes- as well as tether wifi. However I've never been able to work out how to upgrade without loosing my settings and installed programs. I know there's guides out there saying to using Nandroid Backup or Titanium or something, but I haven't found anything clear that explains what to do and I don't really want to start from scratch all over again. Can someone point to a simple "how to backup & upgrade" guide or explain the steps to me please.
It seems a bother but starting from scratch gives you a phone like the one you bought home from the store. Fast!
Installing applications again does not take more than a couple hours while watching TV and you only get those applications you really need, an excellent opportunity to dump little used and potentially phone slowing programs. Remember your audio, video and pictures will remain intact.
If your phone is slow or battery draining then a wipe is a good solution and only install a few programs at a time so you identify the bad applications.
you can't. I think this has been stated somewhere already.
Some applications store settings on the sd card, so you won't lose those settings, but there is no way to upgrade while keeping all your installed programs. You will have to re-install and reconfigure.
Corrected that for you
@Snazzy: Hahahaha. The phone I brought home from the store was far from "fast", it's only Galaxo that's made it even half-way usable. I'm dumping this when the first Froyo devices come out or jumping ship to an iPhone unless there's a real breakthru in the next month with getting 2.X working on this.
Thanks for the replies, in a way I'd rather know it's impossible than that I was missing an obvious way of doing things. Just a pain to loose SMS messages and scores in games each time; how can I at least back them up and restore them? I'm sure that's possible even if I have to accept re-installing my apps. It would be nice to restore my folders (for the launcher) but I can live with that; well I can live with it all, but be nice to not have to loose too much.
Maybe if you used google/market search to do a minimal amount of research, you'd get more out of your device.
There are tons of application backup and sms backup programs in the market for example. MyBackup will even backup settings and call logs.
One of the great things about Android are all the available programs, but at the same time it's sometimes overwhelming and forums like this one are (usually) great places to get advice from fellow users of the same phone/firmwares. I just wanted some advice, I have searched but there are so many options out there I didn't know what to pick and hoped someone could recommend one program without being snide about it. But i'll take the recommendation nonetheless, thanks. I've also (searching for myself!!) downloaded AppManager which I hope will make the restore process for my Apps a little simpler as well.
do a nandroid backup so if it messes up you can restore it.
fix package permission, check filesystem
apply 126.96.36.199 update.zip without wiping
boot and see if it goes in, if it does reboot back to recovery apply the 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206 patch via install any zip from sd
should work i think
you can upgrade to 220.127.116.11 from 18.104.22.168 without wipe, just use small patch from recovery.
or what rasta said
Will we ever get these? ie do we have these for 1.5?
In the end I just downloaded Galaxo 22.214.171.124, renamed it to upgrade.zip, replaced the 1.6.3 file that was on my system, and applied the upgrade and it worked fine. All my apps are in place and i'm running the new version of Galaxo. No patch file or anything.
Too bad they couldn't "fix" the camera and the bluetooth the same way they fixed the tetherwifi...
What's wrong with the Camera and Bluetooth? Mine are both working fine.
He meant in GAOSP, they are two of the main areas holding a lot of people back from jumping to it. Camera for me, I've never used BT in my life.
Exactly what I was talking about. For me BT is mandatory. Hands free cell use is now law where I am.
Quick question - does anyone know of a version of the HTC_IME.apk that will actually WORK on Galaxo/Donut?
I've tried a couple of versions that I've found online that claim to, but not of them actually do. I find this vexing.
