GAOSP (Android 2.2 Froyo for Samsung Galaxy I7500) Public BETA 3 !

GAOSP (CyanogenMod port on Samsung Galaxy I7500) is not perfect, but it’s stable to be used as main system.

Before releasing a RC1, we choose to release  the last BETA, to confirm there is no more unknow  critical issue.

After a lot of works from the whole team (AndroBot, Bukington, Drakaz, Nopy, Obihoernchen),main android and particularly  froyo features are working fine, including apps on external sdcard, native tethering, jit, and most feature from CyanogenMOD ! (https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_vendor_cyanogen/blob/froyo/CHANGELOG.mkdn).
