The Samsung Galaxy S I9001 is not exactly one of those devices out there which you would fall in love with at first glance, and it is definitely far from the glamorous Galaxy S3 when it comes to popularity at this point in time. Well, it seems that there is a rather big port that is being worked upon, which will eventually see the increasingly popular FlymeOS being ported over, courtesy of XDA forum member sc4les. The ROM, however, does seem to carry its fair share of major issues, where among the list of stuff that do not work include the browser that experiences webview error, the inability to view emails, and graphical glitches in select areas.
Good thing 3G connectivity is working all right, alongside calling as well as text messaging, so you will not be left with a dud. The resolution for the launcher is not at 100% either, but at least we do know that progress is being made. There is nothing quite like breathing new life into an older handset with a port, right?
