I have had a chance to play with Samsung Galaxy 5 I5503, a Google Android 2.1 running device. Unfortunately Galaxy 5 I5503 hasn’t qualified to get Froyo update (Android 2.2) although it should have, no compatibility issues. Anyway, I was determined to get Android 2.2 running on my Galaxy 5 and was successful too! A big thanks to Samfirmware for Android 2.2 firmware for Galaxy 5 series phones (I5500/I5503).
The process to install (I know this tutorial is a bit late) and get Android 2.2 running on your Galaxy phone is very easy. Just follow the following mentioned points in order and your mobile phone will soon enjoy all the features of Android Froyo update!

In case you mess up or something stuck for you then download the original firmware for Samsung Galaxy 5 I5503 using this link and follow the exact steps from point number 5. This should restore your device back to Android 2.1.
Note: This process is based on my personal experience and since every device is different hence you are on your own while flashing your device. I, or any other author of TechVorm will NOT be responsible for any loss caused due to this. However, I’ll be happy to help you if need be.
