    Hi guys,

    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 :thinking:

    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! :D

    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.

    I think there's a few bugs with this yet. Drakaz posted on twitter "Fixing call & sms in Galaxo 1.6"

    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?

    Same here, gives me an incorrect checksum error :thinking:

    Since I am using the right file (original update renamed to samsung.tar) I don't see what could be wrong.


    Edit:

    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.

    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
    -nandroid backup
    -wipe
    -adb pushed galaxo 1.6 as update.zip onto /sdcard
    -adb pushed official 1.6 update as SAMSUNG.zip onto /sdcard
    -run update.zip
    -restore gapps
    -reboot

    *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.
