    I just received my sim free device today, all is working well but ther is no Android market icon on the screen and nothing installed on the application list.

    I want to get going with the market and can't believe i've ended up with a device with no market.

    How can I put the Samsung default rom on instead?

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Update: I'm running Firmware: I7500JVIG4

    Thanks Kam, a bit of searching would have got me there apparently. Upgraded to G8 and working well, can't decide if my battery life is good or bad yet as it's still so new I'm playing with it constantly, however I haven't got through a day without it dieing just before bed yet.

    Hehe yeah i know what you mean. I've set it up so many times :-/

    H7 is worth it tho, it speeds it up, fixes a bunch of anoying bugs and gives you 20mb extra ram.
