Ganesh, 05 Aug 2010Hey! Still testing is going on for I9000 Galaxy S. I believe even if its possible to install o... moreI9000 will get official Froyo update from Samsung. I5700 will work great with Froyo because it uses less resources, event better than with Eclair, thanks to the JIT engine.
The problem is that it won`t be getting the update oficially, people are working on porting Froyo to the I5700. Check out samdroid.net and LeshaK`s work.

My first mobile phone. Modded mine on the 3rd day. Bought it in Thailand (unlocked. Now has Android 2.1, Wifi Tether, Rooted, Thai Fonts, Thai Keyboard.
Fist step is to use odin multidownloader, and get comfortable using the 3 buttons to put the mode into 'download mode'.
Install a firmware of your choice with the features you want. I had a couple ones that did'nt work before I found a good one. http://www.thaigoodpost.com/archives/232
2nd was to install a wifi tether wich works great by the way, better then I imagined. http://forum.samdroid.net/f9/lk2-08-original-firmwares-root-new-superuser-wifi-tether-bb-12-07-2010-a-1193/?pagenumber=
Then the Thai fonts here- http://nexusonehacks.net/android-hacks/droid-hack-how-to-install-thai-font-on-droid/
I wish this phones Bluetooth was a little better, also after all the modding the Google Translate fonts, the phonetic ones are missing. Other then that I am very very impressed!
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2010can I upgrade 2.2 froyo? ??? Hey! Still testing is going on for I9000 Galaxy S. I believe even if its possible to install on this, it will be slow in performance. I9000 will be good for 2.2, it's having 1 GHz processor. But still you have to wait for installing.

One more problem, I had 2 gmail accounts because of some problem removed one account, now trying to add it but or fails stating that no data service available, tried through WiFi same resulted, any suggestions.
1. To fix the internet dropping problem I had to Restart my mobile, but now once I go to airplane mode and off airplane mode its working fine. This problem persist in all smart phones.
2. Really my mobile is very slow as a phone. But when I connect to internet, or when I'm in any application its working fine. I think its because of the memory in my mobile now whichis 22mb. Can someone confirm this.
I need help on installing applications in SD card.
