Acknowledgments :

- Anaethelion, Akex and other from the french community for their advice

- French community of frandroid

Due to differences between Galaxy and other android phone about internal memory, you MUST use the recovery : http://forum.hdblog.it/showthread.php?t=3995. Sorry for the inconvenience. Perhaps we can agree on this subject between other rom cookers, for use the same definition of the internal memory (i use "INTERNAL" definition)

BE CARREFULL. This rom doesn't include Google's experience apps. After flashing, use the option "Restore Gapps" in recovery to restore those applications.

New version of GalaxoConf : V2

What's new ? Compcache, vnc, ssh ect can now activated/deactivated without reboot.

How to install it : adb push GalaxoConf.apk /data/app_s/

System :

- New rc, with config file support (GalaxoConf)

- Full ext4dev support for /data partition (you can convert your /data partition, AFTER flashing, with the recovery. Simply wipe (also with the recovery) to delete all the data on /data and restore ext3 filesystem). Use this option only for testing purpose (don't improve the performances)

- Sshd/SCP server

- Script to activate/deactivate the camera button (camenable/camdisable with adb)

- Lot of tools in xbin/

- Telnetd

- Debug tools

- Access phone, contacts, market and other without sim cards (wifi)

Swap :

- Swap is now managed by compcache. If a second partition on external sd card exist, compcache used it automatically as a backup swap. Removed a-swapper because swap in internal memory is perf-killer, and swap on external is better associed with compcache. Be carrefull : swaping is perf-killer if your sdcard was not performant.[/indent]

Other tweak/improvment :

- Tweaked CPU freq rules, improved responsiveness (sampling can be managed in GalaxoConf)

- Cgroups activated, waiting for Samsung's android source code for using cgroups..
