    i seriously need help on this phone
    bought the phone second hand

    did a master re4set thru
    privacy etc..

    before i did the reset there was no android market on the phone,tried accesing thru market.android.com over browser gave me an error..(forgot what it was...

    been reading thru the web for days cant fnd a solution (well sorta found one thats why i am here)

    phone hasnt been rooted yet,only isntalled terminal emulator
    so to i can boot form recover
    t+power doesnt work for me
    but q+power works i can go to download mode

    thinking of just doing a custom rom,...
    thinkung of flashing it to perseus rom
    since it is the newest one here,,

    questions thou
    will i be able to gain my android market back by doing so?
    and is that rom already pre rooted?
    pros and cons of that rom?

    i know you have a bklog for that but its blocked @work..
    i spend most of my time reading @work

    1.)Yes ,You will get the market back since all my ROMs have market
    2.)All my ROMs are pre-rooted
    2.)Perseus has some cons .To start with it is ext4 and it's still unstable .Plus it's more of an advanced ROM for guys who will be using clockwork mod since ext needs to be checked every month to ensure proper working .
    3.)Try the Arkas Einherjar (which has one bug with sports tracker apps which will be solved soon ) or Arkas Ganymede 3/4 (Closest to stock GB )
    4.)If you are on Froyo then use Arkas 0.564 which is the most stable rom .

    Original Ganymede Froyo 0.4 or 0.433 Swashbucker .
    Those are the only Battery efficient ROMs for Froyo
    Your phone will be a lot smoother than stock ROM
    However you need to root 0.4 .
    0.433 is pre rooted :) .

    Ganymede 3 will be GB Rom and stable and battery efficien but it has many hiitches .
    btw you haven't mentioned your country .
    If it is Europe/Asia then well and good :)
    If it is South America I5510L then the instructions are a bit different
    If it is North America I5510M then the instructions will be much different .

    Cheers !!

    I cant "attach" the software but can tell you the links .

    http://galaxy551.wikispaces.com/Odin+Flashing .

    It has Odin and Callisto.ops

    0.433 is a huge improvement over stock ROMs .But If you install Stock Gingerbread ,it is tremendous improvement over 0.433 Swashbuckler .

    Does Gingerbread support your phone .
    Yes it does .:D
    I know someone from Phillipines is using Stock Gingerbread ;).
    It's like this

    Stock Froyo < 0.4 <= 0.433 < 0.564 < 0.5 < 0.533 < Stock GB < 1.2 < 0.6 < 0.6ext2 < Perseus 2 <= 1.5 < Perseus XT4 < Perseus X

    Feel Free to ask more questions :)
