Android 2.1 Coming to Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500?

Well, heres a teaser for all the Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500 owners. And it comes from a official source. ( Although it’s from China, but do give some hopes. 🙂 )
Any Chinese readers might give us the clue about what it actually says. But for now, and looking at the screenshot with big Android 2.1 at the center does suggest Android 2.1 update is on the cards for the Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500.
And if you want to upgrade your Samsung Galaxy to Android 1.6 for now to the latest Firmware. ( almost Official ). Click here. 🙂

And heres the big teaser. 😀 ( click on the pic to see in full size. )

Here is the Original site from where the screenshot is taken. Do let me know if any of you can decode what is actually written with Android 2.1 on the top. 🙂

And if you are interested in GAOSP project, check it’s latest Video showing general performance across the system. It would be a great open source project from Drakaz. Few important things are still not working in GAOSP, so m not recommending you to use the project yet. Once he does the work completely and sorts those issues, i’ll let you know. For now enjoy the video. 🙂

  1. Manish, I hv seen this before in http://www.samsungmobile.co.uk forum. If you notice, its i7500U.. may be another version of i7500 as its says “U”??

    It will be good if its going to be for i7500 also.. but waiting for long time is really making us to feel sick about it..

    do you hv any idea how long this guys in goasp project take? or availability of this firmeware from any other source soon?

    1. Yeah, i know it’s 7500U, but thats not any different from the GT-I7500. It’s just the CDMA version of it. If Samsung Galaxy 7500U gets the Android 2.1 Update, be sure that you won’t have to wait for more than a day to get it on your Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500.
      And bout the GAOSP project, i don’t think Drakaz is working seriously on it. There are a few things which are really hard to port to Galaxy. He is presently busy in his Galaxo project which is based on JC6 – Android 1.6 with Root User Permissions and few more tweaks. Will post a tutorial later to for rooting the Galaxy. 🙂

  2. Manish, You are right.. Goasp project does not seem that active to expect a stable release soon.. Also, i see galaxo 1.6.3.1 is out by drakaz.. did you try that and have any comments on it.. http://www.drakaz.com/

    Also, I see mustymod 2.1 without bluetooth and camera which seems to be good if we are okay without camera.. Have you tried this and hv any comments on it?

    May be thinking if we can use mustymod 2,1 till we get the better one?? okay for now without camera and bluetooth (anyway already do not hv bluetooth 😉

    http://mustymod.forumotion.com/rom-releases-f1/ But seems no update after feb 19th 2010.. may be mustymod busy with some other stuffs?? appreciate if you could post steps to flash mustymod for those who wants to use it for time being…

    1. I’ve posted a step by step tutorial to root your samsung galaxy gt-i7500. Check the latest post. After rooting you can obviously install any custom rom.
      And bout GAOSP and mustymod roms, I haven’t tried it out yet but yeah I’ve plans to do so in coming weeks. Will post a short video bout it as well.
      I can’t just compromise on camera, so that’s the reason that kept me away from these eclair custom roms. And there are other issues as well, it’s just not a stable build, so I won’t recommend you using eclair builds. But If you only want to try it out, then go for it. Feel free to ask me if you feel stuck at any point after rooting from the guide I posted here. 😀

  3. its says, Samsung new models, running on android 2.1. the thing is, i dont run on 2.1 yet, the thing is the galaxy i7500 on the website is the Galaxy i7500U dont know if that makes any difference ?

      1. Manish,

        i just explored that chinesh website with the help of google translate (awesome feature of google). I have found the software on I7500U is just android 1.5… 🙁

      2. That is the Spec of Samsung Galaxy I7500U, and that doesn’t mean it can’t be updated. 🙂 I guess, you also bought your Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500 with Android 1.5, Cupcake! So, don’t get disappointed by that Info you got from the Chinese website.

  4. Hi,
