Now that was fast! Keep up the good work Drakaz!
what? where ? who? i cant see any post of it
Thanks for the heads up!
Oh yea, just google for Drakaz's twitter.
Nice one drakaz.
Have gone ahead and flashed to 1.6, applied the update.zip, but dont seem to be able to get Gapps to restore properly. I cant boot past the 'android' screen atm
Are you using recovery 4.6? I haven't tried yet, besides, it says 'market restore' isn't fully functional, I don't quite know what that means.
yeah, i upgraded to the latest recover. It's not market recovery i need, but Gapps because the Galaxo mod doesnt have the standard google apps. I believe market restore is to restore ALL apps, mms, and sms!
did you remember to copy the 1.6 tar on to /sdcard and rename it as SAMSUNG.tar? that's where the gapps are restored from.
for some reason when i try calling someone it shuts down phone.android and i cant make a call...anyone got any ideas on this one?
I think there's a few bugs with this yet. Drakaz posted on twitter "Fixing call & sms in Galaxo 1.6"
Same thing happens to me messaging crashes on boot and I can't make calls, resets the network. Hope you made a nandroid backup.. Back on stock 1.6
Drakaz : "Galaxo 1.6.1 and Recovery 4.6.1 under test."
hehe, i think ill wait a bit more until the galaxo bugs are solved. aside from the call thing it works perfect. really nice work.
if wifi tether was working i would keep it. but no chance right now cause drakaz doesn't have kernel source
Drakaz just tweeted this: Galaxo 1.6.1 (Fixed SMS/Phone issue) and Recovery 4.6.1 (Fixed permissions issue) are online on frandroid forum.
just a small update indeed and comes with loads of bugs too.
i would just stay in cupcake by now since there's no good reason for now to move on, still no bluetooth or multitouch, just a new market and new google maps with feature i couldn't really use it right now.
the new maps is really good. that and the lock screen tweak is better in my opinion.
those two alone are worth the upgrade I think
Donut seems fine to me, only thing that is bothering me is that VPN is not working, at least in my case.
Let's give Drakaz some time to finish the Galaxo rom.
Haven't tried 1.6.1 yet, but galaxo 1.6 just boots indefinately for me... Stock 1.6 ROM works fine. I DID flash the stock ROM before applying galaxo update.zip (with drakaz recovery 4.6).
Any ideas? Is that fixed in 1.6.1?
Btw, is it true that 1.6 now knows which apps you had before flashing a new firmware? Or will I need to install everything again like with 1.5?
Renamed as SAMSUNG.tar... can't restore, the recovery log gives jibberish... help?
As someone mentioned above, I can't get past the android screen either.
Same here, gives me an incorrect checksum error
Since I am using the right file (original update renamed to samsung.tar) I don't see what could be wrong.
Fixed it, seems my old cable was defective. -.-
mine works just fine. 1.6.1 fixed all the call/sms issues for me.
all i did for it to work ok is:
- flash the new firmware
- wipe using old recovery
- flash the new recovery
- push the new update.zip and the firmware renamed as SAMSUNG.tar
- wipe using new recovery
- apply update.zip
- apply restore gapps
oh and before i pushed update.zip i deleted the old update file.
@mrbrdo - the first time i flashed from 1.5 to 1.6 it remembered my apps but after first reboot it forgot them.
i think it remembers the apps you had on 1.6 though.
Yeah, its loaded on.... not sure what iv done wrong!
Had 1.6 working, haven't tried 1.6.1 yet. reverted to stock after phone and sms wasn't working.
-flashed recovery 4.6
-adb pushed galaxo 1.6 as update.zip onto /sdcard
-adb pushed official 1.6 update as SAMSUNG.zip onto /sdcard
*note if you're drag/dropping or copy/pasting the zip files through windows*
I've had problems flashing when dragging and dropping the zip files onto /sdcard through windows explorer. However when using command prompt to push through adb it works everytime.
