The community-port of android 2.1 Eclair for Samsung I7500 Galaxy

February 4th, 2010

After a long time without any news from Samsung to upgrade their Samsung i7500 Galaxy from the old 1.5 android version to a newer one, the community will make this job.

First the user mustymod (twitter) create a 2.0 android firmware update.  Today it is in Alpha state, many things are broken or will not work. But it was the first android eclair (2.0) update for the Galaxy and it shows it is possible. Thanks for this hard work to mustymod.

After the first eclair port for the Galaxy our major leader in creating custom firmware the powerful (Italian???) Drakaz get a Samsung Galaxy again and initiate with others a open source project. This project will port the new android version 2.1 which comes with Nexus One (N1) to the Galaxy. This project is in the beginning state and many things are buggy or will not work. Creative developers are welcome to help.

The project is located at http://code.google.com/p/gaosp and has a wiki for new developers. Both leaders in porting eclair have github.com accounts to share code. For mustymod http://github.com/mustymod and for Drakaz http://github.com/drakaz/. Feel free to look in their code.

    Though I am not a Galaxy i7500 owner, I do feel really good to know that good people like you exist to make things better for those who have been cheated by Samsung…..
