    Follow these step by step instructions to flash / install Android 2.2 Froyo CyanogenMod 6.1.0 RC on your Rooted Samsung Spica:

    1. The first step is to root your Spica with Leshak’s kernel by following the detailed instructions posted here.
    2. Once done, download CM-6.1.0-Spica-a7.1_update.zip and save the file on your desktop.
    3. Now connect your phone to the computer, mount SD card and copy the ZIP file to SD card root.
    4. Now turn your phone off and reboot into recovery mode.
    5. Once in the recovery mode, use volume up / down button to navigate to Apply Zip from Sd Card and select.
    6. Now simply install the ROM using this option.
    7. Once the installation is complete, go to recovery main menu and WIPE Data and Cache.
    8. Now reboot your phone from recovery. It will reboot automatically 2 to 5 times so hang in there.
    9. And there you go! one the phone boots normally after multiple reboots, you will have Android 2.2 Froyo based CyanogenMod 6.1.0 Release Candidate installed on your phone.

    Please note that if you are already running CyanonegMod previous build, then follow all the above steps in the same manner and uninstall any Google Apps updates that you have done manually.

      DOES IT WORKS PROPERLY ON SPICA WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM

    • Charmander

      I have followed the steps here : http://www.londatiga.net/it/samsung-i5700-galaxy-spica-android-2-1-flashing-guide/
      My spica is now running 2.1, is it now possible to run this mod on my spica, i do very much wud like Froyo…does it have hotspot capabilities?

    • Charmander

      Uh nvm, i got:
      Baseband: i570EXXJD1
      Kernel: 2.6.29 root@SE-S610#2
      Build: Eclair.XXJD4

      Hence I am now looking forward to rooting my phone with LK2.08 : http://forum.samdroid.net/f55/lk2-08-original-firmwares-root-new-superuser-wifi-tether-bb-12-07-2010-a-1193/

      Just not so how im supposed to do that exactly; how does it differ from : http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/root-samsung-galaxy-spica-i5700-with-leshaks-kernel/comment-page-1/#comments

      The files/instructions given in those two link differ hence i’m not sure what files i should be using with oden; I am a noob at this and any help is appreciated. LK2.08 is the newer right? want that and get this froyo mod(i basically am craving for tethering)
