Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: Apply Themes From Xda In Phone?
Nov 8, 2009
I am wondering how to apply themes from xda in our galaxy. A lot of themes say that will only work on cyanogen mod rom and i am not that expert to make experiments with my phone. The way of setting a theme must be the same (update.zip or correct me if i am wrong). I think we can make a list here of the working themes on galaxy and maybe a how to install or modify themes to work with galaxy.
Just wondering if anyone has any idea about themes with Galaxo 1.6.3? I grabbed a theme from this site (which has a GREAT tutorial by the way), but whenever i try to install one, my phone will not boot following the update. I get a similar thing to if you have not restored GAPPS where the screen will just sit on the boot screen but go no further. I tried restoring GAPPS to see if that was somehow the issue, but not luck.
i just successfully installed Galaxo 22.214.171.124 on my Samsung Galaxy i7500 and theres two issues here. First I can't import contacts through signing into my gmail account, it wont even let me get into that window by pressing the button from the menu. So do themes have to be exactly compatible with the version of Galaxo?Also, where is "Market" on Galaxo? was that removed?
Just after some information on the best place to find some themes for my new Galaxy. I have not reaily started looking yet but if you don't ask you could miss that special "thing" to enhance the the look, feel and sound.
Given that us Galaxy users are ROM strapped just wondering what your personal experiences with custom themes are: In particular: GDE OpenHome aHome In terms of LAG being a major issue and customization. Watched several youtube videos of demo's but would like to have some first hand, not a G1, or a droids take on it.
This may be a stupid question but can you D/L themes and apply them using MetaMorph to any ROM? I see A LOT of cool themes that I'd like to start messing around with but I'm not sure if you need to be on a certain ROM or not. Also, how do you use MM to apply the themes?
My query is regarding on whether we can apply dynamically themes in android,like what we do with our phones in which we can select a theme and the same theme gets applied all across the phone.Is there a way to do this in android? (I am able to change the default theme by hardcoding in the code (styles.xml),but I need to know how we can we set themes dynamically. I saw the Android phone,but there is no Setting where we can set the Theme.)
So i've persuaded o2 to have a look at my phone in the hope of replacing it. First they've asked me to reset the phone using *2767*3855#. If i have the same problems (dialpad not working during calls) then i've to return it. If their engineer cannot fix it, i'll (hopefully) get a replacement.So i'm running Galaxo with JC6, what should I do before returning the phone? I'm thinking Nandroid and then copy everything to my hard disk and remove that from my phone. Then use ODIN to install the latest official firmware (which is?). Then I run the reset command they gave me. That about right or should I do something else?
Has ANy one tried opening Samsung Galaxy i7500?, I have chnaged to galaxo 1.6.4. and running it happily downloading stuff and all and all of sudden battery discharged to the point that it would not get charged any more, Insitailly I thought I fried my battery with excess charging, hence I looked for batteries, fortunately in my THIRD world county India, there is no battery in stock at service stations. Hence I needed to wait for 5 days. Now remember I said fortunately.. whyy....cause then i tried restore the old OS, which Galaxo promptly helped me with, Now i tried charging again, but NO way, but the phone was getting heated up like it was on stove or something and it again stopped charging, So I understood its not the battery but the motherboard which has problem...
Now my cell is still in warranty, so before giving it to service station, I want to open it up and see whats what.. I got the manual already.it seems pretty simple( I have disassembled AT& T's Tilt, Nokai 6630, Nokia 6600, and many small others as well) but before that I would like to ask people has any one done it before ? anything I should be looking out for?
When I rebooted the phone got stuck at the boot animation (Red Rage).I can even hear the notification for the SD card being mounted, and then the screen times out.I can push the standby button to get it to turn back on again and then it turns off after a few seconds, as if it is at the lock screen.It then just sits there, still at the boot animation and the touch screen does not respond.I've left it for up to 10 minutes like that and the phone isn't frozen or anything, but it's just stuck at the boot animation.I pulled the battery, went into CW Recovery and cleared the cache.Reboot again.This time it boots up Android OS just fine, but it's still the normal Cyanogenmod theme.Also, recently whenever I've restarted the phone, the live wallpaper has reset to the Nexus wallpaper that comes with Cyanogen and the dust theme. I have to keep switching it back to Nexusmod donate with the blue theme (my fav!). Wasn't sure if that might be related.
I try to make a recovery, but i get stuck in the first step for the 50th time LOL!! on the command prompt when i have to do the fast boot, and next, <waiting for device> there is no conection between the phone and the computer, and stays <waiting for device> forever!
All the threads that I see for applying system wide, they would replace the framework-res.apk and SystemUI.apk and thus would require a restart of the device from the recovery mode.
However, the ROMs like MIUI and ChameleonOS does it without a restart.
Even few Old ICS devices used to come prebundeled with 2-3 Themes with different wallpapers and launcher default widgets.
I'm trying to do something on the lines of above ROMs and have started checking their code. And found that the starting point is by appending an extra path with the AssetManager, but since they also do a lot of changes to other applications,
would be great if I can get some pointers on where to start, key things to do to get the ball rolling and if there is already some solution like this which I can add to my ROM
I just bought a Samsung Galaxy i7500 with Bell mobility and I am trying to figure all these threads out and how to root, and how to upgrade my firmware, but the biggest hurdle I have come to is my pc will not recognize my phone as a 'phone' it only sees the internal sd card and the external card. I have downloaded three different versions of the samsung PC suite, and everyone will not recognize it. Am I missing an important driver? All I am doing is connecting via USB, and on my phone I choose to mount USB so I can access my sd cards on my PC.
I'm rooting my Galaxy S for the first time. Looks like there are multiple ways to do it: (1) Download & apply update.zip (2) Use z4root app from market (3) Use SuperOneClick for PC (4) Use OneClickLagFix app
I just tried to load the GalaxoSense Theme to Galaxo 1.6.1, and now my phone won't boot. I'm in the process of flashing with Odin, and I'll let you know how that goes, but what is the proper procedure for applying a theme?
Does GAOSP Froyo support live wallpapers for i7500? If yes, can you recommend some that seem to run fine without (major) slowdown? I would suspect that the CPU is too slow to run most live wallpapers, but there might be some neat ones that are good to go?
there I am new to this. I would like to find out some information in regards to and update for the samsung galaxy I7500.I live in Australia and it seems the phone cant be updated. Is this true. I have tried on many times to plug my phone into my computer via pc studio.
I'm running galaxo 1.6.2 which i installed on my phone running firmware XII5. Since the update I've noticed my phone very laggy and getting FC's all the time. From doing some reading, shouldnt the update have installed JC6 ? Is it my current firmware version the reason for my phones issues ? Do I need to Odin JC6 ?
