Guide to Flash Android 2.1 on Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500-GAOSP Beta 2

I guess most of the Samsung Galaxy Owners are now aware of the Fact that Drakaz is once again working on GAOSP ( Google Android Open Source Project ) for porting Android 2.1 onto Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500. And he has achieved quite a few milestones in this regard. And he is not too far from Releasing a Stable and Fully working Android 2.1 Custom ROM for Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500. 🙂

With Samsung Releasing Corby with Android 2.1 on almost the same hardware, it seems that have already stopped even thinking about their First Android Phone – Samsung Galaxy GT-I7500. There marketing strategy have disappointed many of their customers but people like drakaz have kept the Project alive even after 1year when it started. Kudos to him. 🙂
