Hi kancrutt,
flashed Ok following your guide. Thanks a lot.

N.B. in my i5500 download mode is done pushing OK key instead of HOME Key.

GSM bug not fixed at all :mad::mad::mad:
and have new demo games that steal ROM space :mad: like my old firmware.
Hope that other FW come out better than I5500XWJH.


bye all


...for the GSM bugs I can't help you, but for the apps you can try to unistall with Titanium backup enabling "Chuck Norris mode"

    Hi everyone,

    I'm working on the GT-I5500 for about 10 days, played alot, flashed alot and i finaly got to learn how it works
    Well i have created a modified froyo version based on samsung's I5500LAR0JP2
    Basically i tweaked the initiation scripts and got the powersave gorvernor set to ondemand
    It was performance, so the cpu clock was always at max
    The battery now lasts about 3 times more according to testers and the device aparently is more stable. All the apps are the same
    Setcpu can be removed since the powersave mode is now default

    To install it, use the odin procedure as the same as the I5500LAR0JP2
    Remember to do a factory wipe after installing
    Below the file, DO NOT RENAME THE FILE TO .TAR OR ANYTHING ELSE, odin will do the checksum of the file so you know it has been downloaded correcty

    tinyurl.com/67wpzzm

    At the Lowyat forum there is all the testing and modifications
    forum.lowyat.net/topic/1687862

    You can also join the irc channel at freenode.net (webchat.freenode.net channel #gti5500)

    All kind of help is welcome

    Thanks,

    James/Motafoca
