This is how to root and install a custom ROM on the Samsung I5500 mobile phone. I believe this may work on other Samsung handsets like the I5503 and I5508 but the I5500 is the only handset I have unlocked with the following tutorial.

I have tested this method using a new G5 in December 2011 but please understand that neither I nor the publishing website will take any responsibility for damage that may occur to your phone if you choose to follow this procedure and something goes wrong.

Firstly I’d like to thank JC_Master and CLShortFuse from XDA Developers and psyke83 from the ever informative MADTEAM for their work to make this possible.

There are a few different ways of doing this and I think I have tried them all, some resulting in a dead phone, some that just don’t work and some that are badly explained. This method has been tried and tested by myself and I will do my best to tutor it as simply as I can so that even a novice computer user may successfully flash / de-brand their phone from the putrid Samsung software!

OK, you ready?

Step 1

1.1 We need to install a boot-loader as the Samsung one is very limited and just plain awful! That said, it wasn’t intended to be used for anything other than the Samsung software so it’s not awful from their point of view but it’s pretty unfriendly to us.

1.2 If you know what a boot-loader is then skip to 1.3. A boot-loader is like a computers BIOS menu. If you have ever noticed when you turn on your computer there is some written text displayed (usually ‘Press F2 or DEL to enter Setup’) before it starts to boot Windows or whatever operating system it uses. If you push F2 or DEL when your computer tells you that you can you will go into a control interface that has options that you can set to tell your computer what to do when it is turned on and how to do it. Most computers are set to boot from the hard-disk first which is why yours starts to load your operating system. Many mobile phones work in the same way and the boot-loader (or BIOS) that we need to install will give us options to install our new ROM, to backup our phone data, to root it (gain entry to the system files – like being able to enter your ‘C:’ hard disk in Windows) and much more that the Samsung boot-loader will not.

1.3 Fortunately for us there is a clever bunch of people over at clockworkmod.com that have released a nice boot-loader for us that is just the job. They make these modded software files for us for free so please do donate something to them if you use their software so they can continue their work. Create a new folder called Samsung in your computers (C:) hard disk drive by left clicking Start Menu, Computer (or My Computer), double left click (C:), right click (not on a file or icon) select New, Folder, type Samsung and the double click the folder to open it. Now resize the folder so it is not using the whole screen or minimize it but don’t close it. If you do close it, you know where it is! ‘C:\Samsung’

1.4 Download ClockworkMod-Galaxy5-v0.5 (Click the link) and SAVE it to your ‘C: \Samsung’ folder. For non I5500 mobile phones find your boot-loader here

1.5 Now let’s get the nice new Android ROM and its latest hotfix too. Remember to donate here as these boys have got to eat too! Download update-cm-7.1.0-galaxy5-v1.7.2-MADTEAM-signed.zip and v1.7.2-hotfix1.zip SAVE to your ‘C: \Samsung’ folder.

1.6 Once this is all done we can install an app from the ClockworkMod team called ‘ROM Manager’ which will allow us to recover, backup and restore our phone. Download it now to the same folder and we’ll do that last ROM Manager APK

1.7 Lets also get the latest Google applications pack to install later too gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip

1.8 **Ignore this step** In order to write any new information to the phones system files we need to get permission to do so and Samsung don’t give you this permission, this is known as ROOT access. There are many installable applications for the G5 that claim to root your phone but the only one I have found that works is Super One Click. This is a Windows installed based program (.exe) and not an APK (.apk – Android phone installed application). Download it here SuperOneClick usual folder!

1.9 Next we need to download and install the Samsung USB drivers. If you have Samsung Kies running then stop or disable it. If you don’t know what I mean then don’t worry about it! Download SamsungUSB to anywhere on your PC and double click it to install it.

1.10 We now need ODIN 4.28 which is the Samsung software that runs on Windows that will allow us to flash our new boot-loader and ROM over the USB cable that came with the phone. We also need an OPS file which is a text type document that specifies the phones perimeters to ODIN so that it can flash (install) the ROM correctly. Download to your Samsung folder ODINv4.28 and the OPS file EUROPA_v1.0.ops

Step 2 – Let’s Do It!

The following tutorial (edited) taken from MADTEAM with acknowledgement and thanks to MayurV


Copy to your phones micro SD card, ‘update-cm-7.1.0-galaxy5-v1.7.2-MADTEAM-signed’, ‘v1.7.2-hotfix1’ and ‘gapps-gb-20110815-signed’ before proceeding. This is best done by removing it and inserting it into a P.C’s or laptop’s SD card reader, if it has one.


2.1 First we have to get into Samsung standard recovery mode. You can enable this mode by following screenshot shown below. You phone must be turned off with the USB unplugged before doing this.

attachment.php


2.2 Now start Odin Multi Downloader v4.28 in your C:\Samsung folder on your PC. You will see following window.

attachment.php


- At first you may notice Odin says ‘Android’ and not ‘GT-I5500’. This is because we have not yet loaded the OPS file.

Your phone must now be in Download Mode and should be connected to the PC with the USB Cable that the phone shipped with. This is the only way Odin can detect your phone.

attachment.php


2.3 Select the OPS file in by clicking the OPS button (No.3) and the ClockworkMod-Galaxy5-v0.5 by clicking the One Package button (No.4).

Once you click on start button you will see all files will write on your phone, it will take around 1-7 minutes.

attachment.php


Once you see “PASS” in ODIN tool, you can remove USB cable from PC. Once your phone has rebooted and you will see following screen shown below.

*Edit** you do not need to wait for the PASS sign anymore. Once you see the handset screen change to the picture below, close Odin with the red ‘X’ window button, disconnect your USB cable and continue.

attachment.php


2.4 If you are new to use ClockworkMod recovery manager then before doing anything, please have a look at next screen to learn the navigation keys.

attachment.php


2.5 First we have to wipe our old DATA which is not compatible with ClockworkMod. Wiping old DATA is necessary if you are installing for the first time.

attachment.php


- Press BACK (H/W) button on phone and follow next screen.

- Press BACK (H/W) button on phone and follow next screen.

attachment.php


- Press BACK (H/W) button on phone and follow next screen.

attachment.php


2.5 Now it’s time for the ROM installation.

Important Note:

• You MUST install the three files in this exact order:
• The main ROM package ‘update-cm-7.1.0-galaxy5-v1.7.2-MADTEAM-signed.zip
• The hotfix package ‘v1.7.2-hotfix1.zip
• The Google Apps package ‘gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip

- Select to ‘Choose file from SD card’ that you have saved earlier.

Both file should be in ZIP format only. Don’t extract, keep it in ZIP format and store it on SD card.

attachment.php


attachment.php


2.6 Once you are done with installation of these files. Press the BACK button until you return to the first screen shown below. Go to the first option and do reboot.

attachment.php


2.7 On next start-up, you will see CyanogenMod 7 Logo and system will load in few mins. Enjoy your new phone software!

attachment.php


We hope you all get successful installations of ClockworkMod 7 ROM’s

Baseband and unlocking?

If you want to flash a new UK baseband you can download the latest one ...

What does flashing the baseband achieve? I assume this will not unlock the phone?

I would also like to add that once people have loaded this ROM onto their Samsung G5 there are many safe ways to extract the 8 digit passcode number to unlock the phone to any network.
I had previously used Jc_master method to extract the passcode which worked on the first one and second one that I did but for some reason the second one failed to reboot after and became bricked. (This was done prior to flashing a non-samsung ROM on both phones and I believe it will not work on the Cyanogen ROM)
This method looks good but I have not yet tried it: method

Flashing a new baseband ensures that the GPS & phone will continue to work. Although you might want to do it only if anything doesn't work after you flash the ROM.

The OPS file should not be a text (.txt) extension (as you found out). One way to check it has the correct extension is to do this:
Open 'Computer' or 'My Computer'
At the top of the page click 'Organize' or 'View'
Select 'Folder and search options' or 'View'
Move the radio dot from 'Don't show hidden files, folders and drives' to 'Show hidden files, folders and drives'
Click 'Apply' then 'OK'
Go back to your OPS file and read it
Your OPS should read like this: EUROPA_v1.0.ops
If it reads: EUROPA_v1.0.ops.txt or EUROPA_v1.0.txt edit it so it looks like how it should read.

did you wipe the phone with ClockworkMod?

i have having the same issues as well... flash CWM with odin, boots fine into CWM, flash CM7 and gapps, and just get the white android writing

i did the following steps:

1. flash CWM with odin
2. in recovery, wiped data, wiped cache, wiped dalvik, wiped battery stats
3. flashed CM7 and gapps
4. just for good measures i wipe cache and dalvik
4. reboot

doing that gets me into boot loop, just keeps giving me the white android writing over and over again.

(off topic here a bit)
tried to go back to stock with odin and still have bootloop with samsung writing on the screen.... so far the phones a brick... cannot get it to boot into any ROM at all

I have put this rom on my phone twice now and it sounds like you are doing it wrong and missing the file "v1.7.2-hotfix1.zip"..

This is how i did it..
Started odin

This is how mine looks..
myodinmultidownloaderi5.jpg


Remember to copy update-cm-7.1.0-galaxy5-v1.7.2-MADTEAM-signed.zip,v1.7.2-hotfix1.zip,gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip to your sd card,If you can't via phone use your card reader on your pc.

But all mine files are in the Samsung folder,so..
OPS - C:\Samsung\EUROPA_I5500_v1.0.ops
One Package - C:\Samsung\ClockworkMod-Galaxy5-v0.5.tar(ClockworkMod recovery manager)
Make sure everything is left ticked when starting odin just make sure one package is ticked..
switch phone off and plug in usb cable in phone(make sure you have installed the usb drivers,once in download mode you will see them installing wait for them to finish installing.)


Download mode - hold vol - down then middle button then off/on button and wait for download mode pic to come up.
you will see COM3 go orange in odin,press start and it will download ClockworkMod recovery manager to your phone and boot it..

Now wipe - data/Factory reset - yes
Now wipe - cache partition - yes
Now wipe - advanced - Dalvik cache - yes - back - Battery Stats - yes

You MUST install the three files in this exact order:
The main ROM package ‘update-cm-7.1.0-galaxy5-v1.7.2-MADTEAM-signed.zip’
The hotfix package ‘v1.7.2-hotfix1.zip’
The Google Apps package ‘gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip’

all files should be in ZIP format only. Don’t extract, keep it in ZIP format and store it on SD card.


on phone - ClockworkMod recovery manager - install zip from cdcard - choose zip from sdcard - click on each file and install it in order,once you have done that restart your phone and your done..

Well that how I did it and it worked every time..:D

Good luck..

P.S If anyone wants to show a video on how to do it let me know.

Looks like I bricked it...help please.

Tried this today and only got as far as attempting to install ClockworkMod. ODIN went to downloading recovery image and then hung there. Over an hour there. So I disconnected...now my phone is ummm...not working. Any ideas?

It's obvious that it doesn't work anymore for now: I presume it shows up an interrupted link between the phone and PC..
So remove the battery, restart the PC and do it again.. maybe you miss the USB Samsung driver: try to reinstall them.. and use the 0.5 or 0.7 tar file for now

    Nice summary, thanks. Can I add a couple of points? Do not use CWM v6, it just times out when flashing with Odin. If you want to flash a new UK baseband you can download the latest one (I5500XWJP4) here http://www.multiupload.com/81IBI2MD0X - the one listed on the baseband page does not work.

    What if I get boot loops???
    I mean I use Odin and 3 file package when something like that happens to my Galaxy Y
    What to do with Galaxy 5

    If you get a bootloop you can use adb to get into recovery. Or just flash cwm recovery in Odin to get into recovery. Then you can flash any custom Rom you want in recovery.

    Hi there, it happend to me too today.
    After digging a bit into the matter, i discovered i had an older baseband - comming from eclair...
    anyway, you should go to http://www.madteam.co/forum/development/basebands/, and download the baseband of your country/region.
    1. get latest 7zip from net
    2. unzip the baseband file, you will get a .tar.md5 file, it's ok
    3 load that file as "one package" in odin and start the install as you did with the rom image.
    4. the device will reboot, and you'll see the dreaded black screen with android text, but this time the device will no longer restart. give it a minute or two, and you'll see the cyanogen screen. you're now good.

    ps: you can do this baseband update even after you got the boot loop, just be sure to start the device with download mode.

    good luck
