The Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate sometime is too sensitive, is there any way to better control it..? The Calibration in the Motion setting might has something to do with it. Anyone know the different setting to control the sensor..?
Does anybody knows what should I do to improve the screen under direct sun light..? I pratically can't see a thing in all the brightness setting..
1.) Does the android OS really works on this phone?
2.) Does it have no any conflict on the features and hardware such as the processor?
3.) Does android make a bit faster on this phone?
rinando, 13 Apr 2011I have the phone about 1,5 years. Still working without problems however when I compare it wit... moreAbout Adroid on omnia, yeah, it would be great to have a full version. There are some guys on modaco who are trying to break the bootloader code.This means we'll have only android on omnia.No dual boot.But it will take some time.
Although now i spend alot of time for Galaxy S,omnia 2 remains one of the best smartphones i ever used.I still try some tweaks and stuff, just for fun.It appears samsung dropped a litle to early the support for omnia 2, but i can understand why...first of all, they launched BaDa OS, many android models and it takes alot of time to give proper support for all devices. Unfortunately,this is for all producers.Android is still too fragmented.This the main advantage for Apple.
to mr. lawrence,
your my handyman.
tanx for answering our queries correctly.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2011Moderator of GSMArena, why are you letting this joker promote and distracting your readers her... moreMr "anonymous", you're the reason why many decent folks turn villains..
Mr "lawrence", keep up the good works, you're very much appreciated..
I came in here to today not because I need Mr "lawrence's" help, but because I had used his help..!!
I have the phone about 1,5 years. Still working without problems however when I compare it with smartphones now... It is so slow.... But wait.. There are developers creating Android 2.1 on this phone! and even Android 2.2! Currently Beta 2 is out. I must say Android running on the Omnia II makes it 10 times faster!! They still have to fix some bugs, but they are working on it now. Check these links±
vicky, 07 Apr 2011Dear All,I am using mobile Samsung I8000 Omnia II 16GB.today i hard reset my mobile after that... moreHmm...what do you mean by external? External is a micro sd card.If you mean My Storage, that's also internal and the 16 gb versions of omnia 2 is known for the "dissapearing" memory. Your problem might be software related.
Try to set the phone on usb storage mode, connect it to pc and see what it's detecting.
anyway, this is a solution
try it. it worked for many.
Dear All,I am using mobile Samsung I8000 Omnia II 16GB.today i hard reset my mobile after that my storage memory(External memory) is not shown only internal memory is shown.

If samsung releases a new rom for omnia i will try to see what is new, but until then i will try to improve my sgs :).
@Lawrence. Can you share with me your procedure for cooking rom. I can't find any straight forward procedure on modaco. I flashed my O2 with JH2 lite rom. I've been using it since september last year. I want to cook my own rom. Thanks
kam, 21 Mar 2011@Lawrence actually i was looking for alot of programs like igo8 and garmin but i cant find any... more@kam. We are not allowed to talk warez/torrents here. That's why i tell to all of you to contact me on email.
@fadz. The procedure is the same. Download the rom and octans downloader.Again, for mr "anonymous", kies won't see the latest update for any phone if it's not released in your country. So again, stupid comment.That's why i never used it.
With octans flash the new rom.
Depending on your pc operating system, you may require to install additional drivers.Remember to look on modaco about the flashing. good luck
Lawrence, 21 Mar 2011@kam.Use a software like Igo 8 or Tom Tom. For Egypt,best maps are made for Igo 8.@Lawrence actually i was looking for alot of programs like igo8 and garmin but i cant find any for free and btw i downloaded a gps tester and it keep scaning till 4ever i just wanna make sure does my gps works well if u got any links for any programs that can help me solve that i will be thankfull thnx in advance

These are ALL official firmwares released by Samsung for I8000. This not includes regional roms, provided by some local operators(like orange, SFR and others).These are STOCK ROMS.
As you can see, most of them are for EU.
I didn't inlcude singapore roms, as i don't understand the language and google translate makes a mess out of it. For more info, search yourselves.
I didn't read anywhere samsung officially dropped the support for omnia 2, but it's clear. Last official rom they released was in october. Comparing with other devices(like omnia1), i think they abandoned omnia 2. For i900, they stoped support after 18 months. Omnia 2 was launched in july 2009, they stopped creating roms in october 2010(15months). So, if anyone of you has doubts, go to samsung centers, pay alot of money for a thing you can do home, for free.
