    I was on 3G. I found when I switched to Wifi (Finally went and adjusted my router so I will stay connected while at home) and it worked fine. I just added the port, so I'll check next time I'm off wifi. Thanks!

    I have been following drakaz on twitter but not the android forum. I m thinking to finally move to froyo this week with galaxyupdater. Some questions:

    1) Does newest build fix shut-down bug??
    2) will galaxyupdater install google market or a will required a manual install??
    3) I will wipe it. How do i JUST save SMS message??
    4) OC to 610 mhz = higher ram??

    1) No it was not fixed. This bug is caused by wifi, so you'll have to turn it off before the phone goes to sleep.
    2) I am unsure about this one as I don't use Galaxyupdater but my guess would be no.
    3) you would have to use an application to back them up before wiping, reinstall the application and then restore them. I don't know of any, but I'm sure it's possible to find one.
    4) You won't get more ram by overclocking your cpu. The processor is simply going to perferm better/faster.

    And thanks for the compliment about my theme.

    A quick report on battery life.

    No signs of strange drainage, the battery is at 75 % after 30 hours of idling, 30 min talking, all syncing enabled. Most of the time on wifi. Some GPS and 3G browsing while out. Min freq is 19.2 MHz, max 624 MHz, CPU sampling and sensors reaction on performance. I don't think the overclocking has any value for me, so I'll probably revert to the defaults.

    Edit: I just switched to interactive CPU governor, and it feels way snappier now! I'll do some real comparison later.

    I have terrible battery life with all the latest nightlys. Screenshots of "Battery use" would be appreciated. Here's mine at 77% (almost no usage):

    Hi Guys,

    I just got my first i7500L and I repaired its dead screen with a new one from china for $23 shipped. I paid $20 at fastgsm to unlock it so I can use it with my Speakout sim ($1/mo plus $.25/min). The firmware is version 1.5.

    Since I hear most talk about Froyo when I hear about android, I guess this will give me the best choice of apps and features possible for the galaxy i7500L.

    My question is:
    do I have to worry about re-locking the phone (I know not to write amss file to the phone, delete it from any tarball). This only happens when restoring the phone or does the Drakaz stuff have amss as well?

    You have no worries at all.
    Just either use Galaxyupdater app for installing GAOSP or Galaxo. The free version allows you to install recovery and paid version recovery + GAOSP or Galaxo.

    Just ask, if you don't understand something. And don't forget to read the sticky (links to some guides).

    From what I understand so far I need to:
    1. root my phone
    2. let the paid version of galaxyupdater do the rest automatically

    The sticky has very old info, the only link there I think may be valid is

    Do I really need to do all of that or can I skip the recovery part of the rooting, since galaxyupdater is going to do that soon enough?

    Question: Do I need to progress from
    1.5 --> 1.6 galaxo --> GAOSP
    or can I go right from
    1.5 --> latest GAOSP (beta3)

    PS for anyone else reading this, it seems you do not have to pay fastgsm to unlock your galaxy, you can flash the brazilian baseband and then flash back to unlock

    You can go directly from any firmware to any other. Yes, you could root the phone and then let Galaxy Updater do the rest, but the "hard" part is rooting. It takes more time to install the app if you know what to do (which you should after the first time).

    If you want to install Galaxo or GAOSP, you could use this guide which I wrote some time ago. If you need help, I'm sure people like Lelouch, r3dpuma (or me) will help you out. ;)

    The link you posted would still work, it's pretty much the same thing now that I look at it.

    EDIT: Forgot to answer your question about the recovery part. Well, the recovery is an easy way of rooting, so you should probably pick a guide and then follow it instead of experimenting with other stuff. There are other methods (rooting with Odin, easyroot, etc) but you should probably stick to the guide for now. :)

    PS: I never used the app Drakaz made and I thought the "install recovery" option was pretty much only used when an update is released since most people root by installing the recovery. I might be wrong though.

    The guide has a bad link in this section:
    Code (Text):
    1. The GAOSP Google apps (also known as Gapps) Thanks to Obihoernchen for this version or the Galaxo Google Apps.
    There is now a version 3 out.
  23. DaSchmarotzer

    DaSchmarotzer Blame it on me

    Alright, fixed it, thanks. I linked to the download page instead of the file to prevent it from happening again.
  24. Lelouch

    I think you're right on this part.
    I'm sure if you're phone is not rooted already you will not succeed in installing the recovery. Instead you will get a warning stating that you need to have your phone already rooted (need root access). So the Galaxyupdater app will be useless unless you root your phone beforehand.

    So DaSchmarotzer has already answered some of your questions regarding that. I think there was a link for a 1.6 firmware with a custom recovery for flashing via ODIN. Or via ADB, use existing guide for that (I hope you don't use 64 bit Windows), never tried from Ubuntu or Linux.

    About flashing brazilian firmware.
    That's unnecessary now with the newest version of GAOSP. Some previous builds needed that. So skip this.
    One thing I'm not sure off is. If you flash Bell firmware back on your phone ,that the phone will get locked back again. :p

    Anyway, first try flashing recovery via ADB (use guides for that). If you have questions just ask, someone will answer you for sure. Also about gapps there are 3 versions you can choose from: ultralight, light and normal one. So choose carefully which you want, I think that Obi has a read me files on his site for each of the option except for the normal ones.

    Guide needs an update in step 3.

    I copied the 2 .zip files to the internal storage:

    I installed android-sdk-windows and copied
    to the /tools

    I did the fastboot and got a dll error. So I found out that adb was moved to a new folder /platform-tools, so I copied it over to /tools with the dll file

    Question: Where does galaxyupdater come into play? I assume the guide is rooting my phone and i have the option of finishing it or using the updater?

    Update: In the meantime I finished the guide, it was very clear and the automated scripts did all the work for me :D Thanks guys.
