How to upgrade FROYO 2.1 or 2.2 on Samsung Galaxy I7500L from Bell
I've got the Galaxy phone thru my operator in Serbia, Telenor (Telenor: Products and services / eShop / Phones / Mobile phones)
I tried to use the New PC Studio in order transfer my contacts to this new phone, but realized that it's an impossible task to do... a huge disappointment.
Anyways, after countless hours of trying to put my PC and Samsung Galaxy to work together, I finally succeeded in installing the latest version of PC Studio as instructed on this website, in order to be able to upgrade the firmware (my battery currently runs out quickly, the phone restarts or turns off with full battery once in a while, etc.)
However, although PC Studio now recognizes my phone, when I try to do the update, I get the following error message:
This device is not supported. The device you have selected does not support software upgrade.
Followed following URL Update Samsung Galaxy I7500 to Android 1.6 Donut Firmware In hand "Odin Multi Downloader v3.95" and "i7500_XXJB6.tar" Please guide me step by step i want to upgrade my i7500 firmware b/c it do not have android market.View 3 Replies View Related
I just upgraded my Galaxy's firmware.
I can see all the apps that I have installed, all pics, all music files even all SMS's but I don't have any contacts in my phone any more.
Are they gone for good or are they hiding somewhere on the phone?
I didn't have them synced with my gmail account.
Purchased my Galaxy in Italy in September. Upon returning to Australia, I found Voice Search on Android Market and downloaded it. I was very impressed with it.Since then I have upgraded my firmware to IH7 via NPS. Voice Search disappeared and is no longer available on the Market. I found a thread with links to a voice search & voice dialer apks, however have had no luck once installed, as they display errors when run.View 2 Replies View Related
I just recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy GT-17500L (its a Bell Canada phone). After purchasing the phone (which was originally unlocked) I bought a Solo mobile sim-card, which was needed in order to use the phone on my Solo monthly plan. Everything was working fine until I decided to try and update the firmware from 1.5 to 1.6; unfortunately, like a few others from Canada, I didn't properly read the guide and after the upgrade, the phone was "re-locked" and wasn't accepting my sim-card. After going through the guide posted on Pg.4 here (Bell Canada users and Brazilian Users - Galaxy 7500L (notice the L)), with the help of Rasta-Man FB posts and others, I was able to get my phone back to the original firmware, but now I'm having reception issues. The phone will at times pick up the Solo Netowork (I'm still using the original solo sim card), but then drop it after 10 minutes and just say there is no service. When I search for networks, it recognizes the Solo one (I'm guessing b/c of the S.C) but it isn't able to connect.View 3 Replies View Related
On dutch forums i red that you have to go to a samsung service point to upgrade your SGS to android 2.2 froyo. Is this true or are they all wrong... because i thought it would be OTA?View 1 Replies View Related
I'm probably in the same situation as many SGS owners, i.e. installed the one click LAG fix to overcome the issues with 2.1. As 2.2 is due out (in the UK) probably sometime in the next few weeks, can someone more technical advise if the LAG fix should be removed and the phone unrooted before the official upgrade. Additionally, is there any benefit moving up to 2.2 other than Flash? I haven't had any real issues with the phone other than the initial LAG. I'm on Orange UK, but I don't suppose that really matters?View 7 Replies View Related
It might be a noob question, but if you have rooted epic 4g, will it upgrade to froyo with no issues? Do i need to reset to default 2.1 again then upgrade?I know froyo coming soon but wanted to be ready for it.View 1 Replies View Related
so i tried to upgrade from 2.1 to 2.2 through KIES this resulted in a failed upgrade, so i then tried to use Odin. unfortunately the firmware i flashed to caused even more bugs and kept restarting, So I then tried to use KIES/Odin to flash to a different firmware i now get two different errors
1. along the lines of storage is not ready - copying of default media fails
2. cannot mount a certain file - stl11. or something ?
I have read a few posts hear saying that it is recommended that after you have upgraded to froyo 2.2 that you should do a System Reset otherwise things might run slower than before?
I have a lot of applications (6 pages) installed on my SGS and also contacts etc setup. I also have some gameloft apps that I cannot redownload if I lost them without paying again.
I am guessing that a reset will wipe all this out? Is there another way without having to start again?
I have a big problem with my Galaxy S immediately after upgrading to the JPM/Froyo firmware. Immediately after the update the phone attempted to reboot, and now stays on the Galaxy S logo way too long before the screen goes blank and only the bottom two buttons are illuminated. And it just stays like that. I have a feeling that it might have something to do with the OneClickLagFix that was installed on the phone; maybe the upgrade didn't like the lag fix being there. Also, on pressing VolumeDn, Home and Power to get the recovery screen, the screen is replaced with a yellow "Downloading. Do not turn off Target!!!" splash. So there are no recovery options.View 11 Replies View Related
If I upgrade the firmware to Froyo 2.2, can I downgrade again if I find it too buggy like others have?View 5 Replies View Related

Do I need to flash back to original 2.1 to get the official 2.2?View 3 Replies View Related
There have been some silly announcements of 2.2 Froyo being 450% faster than 2.1 Eclair.
It's not important how much faster it will be... the important thing is they've seemingly worked on improving speed, which in turn probably means resource usage is lower, which could also mean hardware requirements are lower and perhaps it will run fine on older phones.
Anyway, I doubt Samsung will be giving us 2.2 instead of 2.1, so I'm curious whether there is any chance of us getting it some other way? Are there any reasons why 2.2 would not be able to run on the Galaxy?
I've installed Froyo on my i7500, but the statusbar colour is still the boring old light grey. Is there any way to change this to black, by any chance?View 3 Replies View Related
Anyway we can upgrade to .6 heard people with .3 it won't work. do we need to reinstall 2.1 (1.47) and then upgrade from there?View 13 Replies View Related
I just did a hard reset on my phone but it seems as if the bootup screen ((Freshhhh logo) still come up every time I restart the phone. I also have problems installing 2.2 OTA from HTC.View 1 Replies View Related
Just want to say that i'v kept up with a bunch of news regarding the release of 2.2 for the Motorola Droid. Can anyone tell me for sure if Froyo is available for upgrade on the Motorola Droid?View 1 Replies View Related
How to upgrade Eclair (2.0) to Froyo(2.2).View 3 Replies View Related
My Desire was crashing, so I requested a replacement with O2 business. I upgraded to 2.2 last week using the software update link on the phone. Today I received my 'new' handset from O2 which still has 2.1-update1 as the firmware version. When I tried to upgrade I was informed there is no newer version. Spoke to O2 business, who told me that HTC had withdrawn it again. I'm kinda pleased that my 2.2 desire has been sent back, if there are serious enough issues with Froyo for it to be withdrawn. I did like a couple of things extra in the menu structures, but is it really that important?View 29 Replies View Related
Got my Desire just under a months ago. Had to return it for endless restarting & freezing 2 days ago. Got an unbranded replacement. Just did the O2 OTA upgrade and I notice I have no Market app. (I may be missing other things also, I don't know, since I'm a fairly new user).View 6 Replies View Related
I got my "dinc" in early August with 2.1 onboard and recieved the OTA froyo upgrade about two weeks ago. I like 2.2 (I think) but not all the battery-vampire crap-apps that came with it. I desparately want to root so that I can explore the full potential of this phone and hopefully find some options to extend my battery and get rid of the bloatware.
Unrevoked's website says v3.2 has been temporarily pulled and to use v2.2 "in the meantime". I've tried several of the methods that call for 3.2 using 2.2 and it seems to work up to the reboot step towards the end. Each time I get this "failed to flash recovery image" message. I've followed every detail of several videos and posts (including one from this forum) instructing how to root with Unrevoked, but the end result is always the same.
1. Can I use Unrevoked to root my phone with the froyo upgrade in place?
2. If so, how? Because what I've been trying ain't gettin' it done.
3. If not, is there a way to roll-back to 2.1 so that I can use Unrevoked?
4. Could the 2.2 version of Unrevoked be casuing my "failed flash" issue?
Warning - confussed noob. Currently running on HTC Desire (Telstra): Build Ver: 1.16.841.1 I have downloaded from Shipped ROMS: RUU _ Bravo_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.10.405.2_R_Radio_32.44.0 0.32U_5.09.05.30_2_release_142828_signed.exe. If I do not want to root, do I just run the above EXE? Can I downgrade afterwards by just using the HTC Telstra ROM EXE? (HTC desire_RUU_Bravo_Telstra_WWE_1.16.841.1_Radio_32.3 0.00.28U_4.05.00.11_release_126124_signed.exe)View 15 Replies View Related
So I upgraded to Froyo last night. Very nice update, amazing how fast this new version of android is. Along with some of the enhancements already mentioned, it seems the stock keyboard is much more accurate and I find my self not deleting so many letters.View 2 Replies View Related
How to Debug on the Samsung Galaxy I7500 Android Phone
When i followed the above steps system tried to install driver and then prompt following error.
The Samsung i7500 Galaxy is, except the support from Samsung itself, a great Android smartphone with a very good (the best?) price for value. It's with 11,9mm the second slimmest Android phone after Nexus One with 11,5mm (right?) and has unlike the HTC phones a flash light and build in storage of 8GB. On most sites the Galaxy is (one of) the cheapest Android phones, I wonder if it's because Samsung is cheaper or HTC/Motorola more expensive by itself?
I personally would compare the i7500 with the HTC Hero, although in my opinion the i7500 still has a much better price for value.
Is it even possible to define if and which Android phone is a low, middle, or high-end smartphone?
Sure, it also depends for what purposes you bought and use your phone, but I still wonder were the i7500 would be if 1=low and 10=high end Android phone, and if there even is a number 10? I also think that the D-Pad is a big plus and not a minus in comparison to the scroll ball from HTC.
Received the upgrade from Telstra Australia today for my Desire. I'm not very good with the tech and software side of things (quite a dunce really) and have looked for a guide as to what to do prior to installing the update and also once completed. Is anyone able to steer me in the right direction as to where a good guide is or maybe a few pointers. My phone isn't rooted and is not something I want to gamble with being not techsavvy.View 2 Replies View Related
I am currently rooted with 2.1 and have cyanogenmod installed. What is the most painless way to upgrade to 2.2? Should I install it manually and just boot my phone to 2.2? Also, if I do that will i loose all my text, apps, etc.View 7 Replies View Related
how to go back to stock so they can get the official froyo rom. Why exactly?
- you may never be able to root again
- stock froyo apps2sd is very bad comparedto rooted a2sd+
- rooted roms based on the stock froyo rom will be faster and more stable than stock
I've posted this question over on the Samsung Galaxy S section, however, it may be a more general query that someone can help with, particularly the unrooting query as I realise some other phone users have already went through the 2.1-2.2 upgrade. I've rooted and applied the "one click LAG fix" to my glitchy SGS running 2.1 and the phone performs very smoothly and reliably since. (benchmarks are consistently over 2200, although I realise that statistics aren't everything)
It is expected that sometime in the next few weeks in the UK (???) that the upgrade to Froyo will be available through the Samsung KIES desktop software rather than OTA and I have the following queries.
1. Should the phone be unrooted before an upgrade is attempted?
2. Should the "LAG fix" be removed before an upgrade?
3. Has anyone previously removed their "LAG fix" and can they advise if there are any gotchas I should look out for?
when i upgraded to froyo my droid X keyboard kept posting force close errors over and over again so i had to switch back to the stock keyboard.View 12 Replies View Related
I have seen several posts noting problems requiring a hard reset. I myself had to do this, as I couldn't always answer the phone (swipes were simply ignored about 70% of the time) and the weather widget was out, too. Had to hard reset and, from what I hear, so have many others. Why is this? I called HTC, who called what Verizon did "buggy".View 1 Replies View Related
I updated officially to Froyo 2.2 today from the VZW notification. Now, whenever I select my camcorder, it goes back to the home screen and does not launch. I removed a flashlight app that I had installed from the market. I restarted several times. Tried removing the battery for 15 minutes. All no help. any suggestions. Everything else seems to work properly.View 3 Replies View Related
I have a black desire (from orange). it is unlocked and i'm using an o2 sim. when froyo does come out - who do i get my froyo update from?
and more importantly, will i still be able to upgrade to froyo without having to de-brand or root?
I haven't updated yet but it sounds like there is a lot of problems. I have a stock droid x no changes. Will I have. The problems.View 7 Replies View Related

since I upgraded to froyo and rooted it takes up to 10 minutes to see my sd card on my PC. Sometimes it seems like it drags down my PC. I did also upgrade my card to a 32 gb which could be the problem or did I not format it correctly be the problem. TiaView 1 Replies View Related
Since upgrading to Froyo when I get a text and have read the message and returned to the home screen it still shows as if I have a message. I have to go back into the messages and then back to the home screen for it to go away.View 2 Replies View Related
I updated to Froyo and everything worked great! Downloaded "Beautiful Widgets" from the Market successfully...no issues there...phone calls were great...and e-mail and text messaging just fine.
This was at about 5PM. I'm up late working on some projects now...and was on the phone talking to a friend and BAM service cut off and I assumed it was her since she was driving. Nope. It was me!
I then noticed that there's a big red sign representing no service at the top of the screen (Like a no smoking symbol)...and I can't do a damn thing. Lock screen also says "Searching for Service".
The Froyo update and what I'm experiencing here are close enough in time for me to point the finger at Froyo...but has anyone heard of this happening? I was enjoying it up until now!
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.View 1 Replies View Related

I did the manual upgrade to 2.2 Froyo last night and 2 applications have stopped working
-1) Ringo Lite is totally gone and will not install at all manually.
-2) Open Home is installed but cannot seem to make it stick as the default "home" application. Everytime I hit the Home button on my N1 it goes back to the 2.2 (froyo) default home screen.
The Android 2.2 Upgrade List: Phones Definitely Getting Froyo
Nexus One: Despite the shuttering of its online store, Google's flagship phone is still first in line for the Froyo upgrade. In late May, a "very limited test group" received an early copy of the 2.2 software. Google has since been working on final tweaks and expects a widespread rollout to begin soon.
Motorola Droid: The Droid that started it all is set to be second in line for the Android 2.2 upgrade. Early reports suggested the Droid could see Froyo before the end of June. We all know what happened with the Droid's 2.1 upgrade schedule, though, so don't mark your calendars just yet.
HTC Droid Incredible: HTC has confirmed that its newest Droid handset will be feasting on Froyo. No specific timeframe has been released outside of sometime "in the second half of this year."
HTC EVO 4G: The EVO 4G is the phone most frequently pitted up against Apple's new iPhone 4 (hint: the EVO wins), so it's no surprise that it's on the confirmed guest list for the latest and greatest Android release. The EVO should get Froyo sometime in the next six months.
MyTouch 3G and MyTouch 3G Slide: The entire MyTouch line of phones on T-Mobile is expected to see Froyo before the end of 2010.
HTC Desire: It's not yet available in the States, but this desirable HTC handset is on-tap to get the Android 2.2 upgrade sometime in the next six months as well.
