  6. My android goes to downloading mode and after the firmware installation it boots but it just shows the “Samsung” logo and keeps repeating the same. Does this mean that I have bricked my Android??

    Thanks :)

  7. Dude. GT-I5500 doesn’t have Recovery mode on those buttons. I didn’t wipe cache, is that OK? Froyo starts normally, will there be any problems later? In hvala za slovenski jezik :D

  8. I’ve read several just right stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how so much attempt you set to create this type of great informative web site.

  9. worked great!!!it’s awsome but i have some problems with the wi-fi….

  10. you saved my bacon thanks :)

  11. Sorry I am being a bit thick today but could you please clarify the paragraph for updatation just above the second video?
    Should the words in Bold Type say “Recovery Mode” and not ‘Download’ ?
    The video mentions the Menu Key, should the keys be Volume/Centre (OK) and Off keys only. ie not the Menu key which is to the left of OK.
    Thanks, dont want to get it wrong
