[Galaxy i7500] Howto install/flash Galaxo Rom on the Samsung Galaxy 7500

Flash your Samsung Galaxy with Galaxo.
Step by step install on Windows.

Note: I was using official I7500XXII5 Cupcake before flashing. I don’t know if it have any importance…

Before starting, you should:
use an app like MyBackup to backup SMS and call log (optional).
remove external SD Card.
make sure that your Galaxy’s battery is full.
