Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Galaxo - Battery Life

Aug 16, 2010

I installed the galaxo rom on my I7500L the other day and immediately encountered a problem. My battery died in less then 7 hours with the screen off. I read into the no sleep problem (and being able to tell I have it by not being prompted by lock screen) and do not believe I have that problem. I am running it pretty much bare bones, with adw launcher, advanced task killer, and handcent. I did have the task killer set to auto task kill and aggressive (turned it off completely now) that may have been the issue.

Although its particularly odd that every time I enter task kill the settings application is always open no matter if i kill it or not. Is there any common knowledge I didn't follow (heard of deleting launcher.apk cause galaxo constantly refreshes it) but haven't done so yet.

Allowing the screen to time out and using the end call button to bring it back on has resulted in the settings program not running in the task manager as it constantly has. scratch that, still doing it.

Samsung I7500 :: Galaxo Cupcake And Firmware Version

Mar 10, 2010

I've installed galaxo (galaxhero to be precise) for quite a while now and it's been awesome. Only thing is, my Chinese ID3 tags come out as gibberish, I think it's 'cause of the II5 firmware. I've read threads about flashing to II5 before installed galaxo, but since updated versions have been coming out, I just wanted to find out. Is galaxo strictly only for II5? Meaning it isn't backward NOR forward compatible? My gibberish ID3 tags are really bugging me.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: How To Add Locales To Galaxo

Jun 25, 2010

Been using Galaxo for quite some time now and it's fast, stable and tweakable. Only thing that lacks is the support of Dutch locales. Tried the app MoreLocale 2 however this only changes the language of the homescreen menu. Settings e.g. remain English. In XXJC2 Dutch locales are included so I was wondering if it's possible to copy them to Galaxo Anyone knows how to do this? Seems like some Tai managed to install Tai fonds by replacing Sans Droid in system/fonts. Don't think this adds languages though.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: Requirements For Galaxo

Jul 2, 2010

Are there any requirements for flashing the i7500 to galaxo? Cause I can't use the recovery (any version) to flash the galaxo to my phone. Recovery hasn't any response on operations wipe, flash, rooting, fixing permission etc.Anyway, I found I can do fixing permission with adb command to execute the script "" in the /tmp/RECTOOLS in recovery mode.Unfortunately, fixing the permission can not help for the wiping and flashing operations. the operations don't work also.I have also tried to flash by using "flash_image" command in /tmp/RECTOOLS, but I can't identify the flashing partition, the following is the result of df command.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: Putty To Galaxo Over USB

Oct 16, 2009

So I noticed galaxo is using a colour term profile which is really nice, except for us poor windows users You could of course enable SSH, reboot, and turn wifi on and then ssh in using putty, but that's not really that convenient. Especially if you dont like to leave ssh running.Instead you can run dropbear manually and redirect the port using adb, then putty in directly.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Using Launcher 2.1 In Galaxo 1.6.2

Apr 9, 2010

There is a version of Launcher 2.1 which is available to donut and works on Galaxo 1.6.x. You can read about it here:
Android Launcher Modification

It is now available on the android market! Just search for adw, and install. As galax0 keeps the Launcher.apk in memory, you'll want to get rid of the Advanced Launcher and replace it with this one.

I used the following adb commands after installing from the market:
adb remount
adb shell
cp /system/app/Launcher.apk /system/app/Launcher.bak


################################################## #############

Old instructions, in case you download a non-market zipped version:

Steps to install on Galaxy:
1) Make sure you have Galaxo 1.6.x. I used newest recovery, 4.6.2, although I doubt it matters.
2) Put the zip on the internal sdcard.
3) Reboot recovery
4) Perform a Nandroid Backup (very important!)
5) Perform the fix permissions operation.
6) Apply the zip you downloaded using the "apply any zip from SD" option.
7) Reboot.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Galaxo Is Out - Tetherwifi

May 30, 2010

New version for Galaxo : ! Whats up ? TetherWifi is back !

Sometimes, we seek for something complicated.. kernel, drivers, device and the solution is very simple : firmware.

Since Donut, Samsung had removed ad-hoc support, not from kernel, or drivers, or Android itslef, but only from the firmware, named rtecdc.bin. Cupcake version of the firmware work fine for our use, so, why not using it on Donut release ? Thats done now.

How to install tetherwifi on Galaxo 1.6.X ?

1) Manuel way Take rtecdc.bin from a cupcake release (official or not) Push it on your device, named as /system/etc/rtecdc_adhoc.bin<LI sizset="11" sizcache="5">Download and install the last version of tetherwifi, included Galaxy support, and third party firmware support, 2.0.2, here :
Enjoy TetherWifi !

2) Recommended : Automatic update to Galaxo from Galaxo (no need to wipe, no need to reinstall, just a patch) <LI sizset="12" sizcache="5">Download the patch here : [url]?
Reboot in recovery mode
Choose Apply any zip from sd
Apply update
Enjoy TetherWifi !

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Using Connectify And Galaxo

Jul 26, 2010

Im using a mobile broadband (USB Stick Form)

I tried use connectify version 2 to form a wireless access hub.
I had no issues in forming an access point but had problems in accessing the network from the Phone running Galaxo

Does Galaxo support WPA2-PSK protocol.

Because Connectify only creates networks having WPA2-PSK protocols which the phone has difficulty in connecting to.

Anyone successfully connectify and galaxo 1.6 may accordingly advice.

Also any other software...which may help me share my mobile broadband on my phone.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: No Full Market With Galaxo

Sep 10, 2010

I installed Galaxo a couple of days ago and since I'm a happy person! It's really a different phone.

Today when reading an article on the new google maps innovation (Walking Navigation, Street View), which are available with Google Maps 4.5, I tried finding them on the market and couldn't. I then realized I can't see any paid apps on the market after my Galaxo installation.
(I also noticed that the Google maps version with galaxo is 3.3)

So I've got two questions:
1) How can I "free" my market?

2) How can I install Google Maps 4.5 with the two gadgets above?

Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: Galaxo Configuration In 1.6.2 And SetCPU

Apr 11, 2010

I couldn't find any info about how exactly Galaxo configuration affects the performance changing Eco / Mix / Perf mode. What exactly it does? I would also like to know the same thing for the SetCPU app. There is a profile for Samsung Galaxy called MSM7k Turbo. What changes and tweaks does it make / do to the phone? Does those two settings can somehow confront each other meaning how it affects the phone performance / behavior if, for example, I have Galaxo Configuration set to Eco and in the same time I selected Galaxy Turbo profile in SetCPU?

Fellow stale Donut Galaxy users [I think we can thank Samsung for that, eh?]. I'm tired of my [buggy] JC4, and I've finally worked up the nerve to try messing around with unofficial ROMs. But I can't seem to find a proper and step-by-step guide to installing Galaxo Can anyone tell me how to do it? I'm familiar with ADB and I've flashed firmwares before [albeit, the official Samsung ones via Odin].

Samsung Galaxy I7500 :: Headset Music Bug - Galaxo

May 26, 2010

Unplugged headset bug was pissing me off so much that I decided to work with it.
Galaxo 1.6.3.x is really great and kicks ass.

If music app annoys you after unplugging headset just delete it.

Delete from system/app two files:

No need to restart, unplug your headphones and enjoy quiet.

Instead of crappy music.apk use Meridian from market

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Themes - Working In Galaxo 1.6.3

May 5, 2010

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.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Theme - GalaxOrbit For Galaxo 1.6.3.x

Jun 15, 2010

Well, there haven't been a lot of themes posted here, so I decided to share mine with others who might not know how to do so or have my awesome photoshop skills. (isn't Android about customization?)

New release (August 24th)! There's no big change, except that the Power Control Widget acted weird when you pressed them (it changed color, but not really correctly, it's a detail. Now fixed.) Also I removed the background for the application drawer, because I now use ADW launcher and the tray is somewhat transparent.

Anyway, I didn't make this theme for others, I made it for myself. I didn't plan on sharing it, and it's in no way a complete makeover for your Galaxy. I wanted a few things to be different, so I changed them, and I constantly mess around with this theme.

What I use: Galaxo with Helix on the screenshots, I now use Galaxo and ADW launcher from the market (with root explorer I went and deleted launcher.apk, so I get all my memory. Ask if you have problems).


Note: To install Helix launcher, download this one, get into the recovery, fix package permissions, apply any zip and select (if you download from the market, your phone will be slow: the original launcher is locked into memory, the one I gave you will overwrite it. I recommend using ADW though.)


How to install:

-Download the and extract it.
-Download and install Metamorph on the market (there's a free version).
-Run metamorph once.
-Place the extracted theme folder in the new "Androidtheme" folder of your SD card.
-Run metamorph
-When the check is over, select the bottom right option (Existing themes), and select GalaxOrbit-1.3
-In there, select GalaxOrbit-1.3.xml and then the bottom right option (Apply all). Answer yes to the prompts they give you, and there you go!

Screenshots (the Google logo in the search bar is now back to its original color):


What are the changes?
The power control widget is now transparent, same goes for part of the music widget. The notification tray is now transparent too, with some lightning effects. The application tray background now has a texture (it's plain dark with Helix launcher). The Google icon in the search bar now has colors (NOT ANYMORE, check edit at the bottom), and the icon for the stock music and video apps were changed. You can see all those changes in the four screenshots. The beach background was added too.

Why GalaxOrbit? That's a stupid name.
No reason, it's one of the first words starting with O that came to my mind (it was almost called GalaxOhMyGod, GalaxOrbit doesn't sound too stupid now, eh?)

What's the time widget?
You can see it in the screenshot where the app tray is opened, it's called Digital Clock widget�

Why did you start with the 1.1 version? Why not 1.0?
I started with 0.1 up to 1.1 and then I decided to release it. I tested many things during the 10 versions, such as: new launcher icon, transparent Google search, icons for the power widget control, new battery indicator, more wallpapers, etc etc. I decided that this was simple and nice-looking, so I went back to most of the stock stuff.

That's it. I don't expect many people to post and even less to use this, but I think it looks nice, and it might raise the awareness that you can do this yourself and it's REALLY easy. No need to code, to use ADB, the only thing you need is a program like winrar to open the .apk files (apk = zip) and then you can directly modify the icons, as they are simple png pictures. What I did was take an existing theme (GalaxAir, by Korline), and check out how it's done. I was surprised by its simplicity.

EDIT: GalaxOrbit 1.1 was removed and replaced with 1.2. I don't think anyone used it, but if you did, I suggest a Nandroid restore and using 1.2 instead. With 1.1, I would always get force close when installing an app from the market (probably because the Google apps were modified), so I removed the colors from the Google in the search widget. Going from 1.1 to 1.2 won't do the job, as Metamorph can't remove files, and I didn't include the original picture in 1.2 just in case it would do the same thing. 1.1 link was removed.

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Audio While In A Call - Galaxo

Jul 15, 2010

Admittedly I don't use my phone as a phone a whole lot. I didn't notice this before, but today while actually using this thing as a phone, the sound of the person at the other end would completely cut off if I said anything. It was exactly like using a speakerphone or a walkie talkie. Is this a bug with Galaxo or has my Galaxy always done this and I have failed to notice ?

Samsung Galaxy I7500 : Galaxo Tweaks - Get More Memory

Oct 23, 2009

# Remount read/write

# open shell

# go to apps directory
cd /data/app_s

# delete QuickDroid (if you want to)
rm QuickDroid.apk

# delete NPS sync (it doesn't work so why run it!)
rm wssyncmlnps.apk

# disable drexe (this gets baseband info for NPS. Who needs it!)
mv /system/bin/drexe /system/bin/

# disable npsmobex (this handles auth with nps)
mv /system/bin/npsmobex /system/bin/

Now kill any running apps, and flush the cache to get a good baseline of free memory:

sync ; echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches ; cat /proc/meminfo ; free

I get this Total memory after boot with all tasks killed:
