    I wasn't thinking hardware . . . I was thinking ROM. I really really like my Charge. The size is perfect for a phone and I've got a Galaxy Player 5.0 for reading content. So I'm set for awhile.

    I have the Galaxy 5 as well with a 64gb micro in it. I'm not sold on it though because the screen is too receptive to touch. I often select things I am not meaning to while scrolling. Other than that though it is solid. overclocked to 1.2ghz it is very smooth.

    I can't say I've ever noticed the screen being too responsive. Whats a challenge is switching between the Player with 3 soft buttons, and the Charge with 4 hard buttons!

    What I don't like about it is it uses a Yamaha audio chip that can't be tweaked the way the Wolfson chip in the Charge/Fascy can be tweaked and the sound quality is not quite as good as on those devices. So I use my Fascy with voodoo sound to listen to music and the Player is for forum/news other types of content like YouTube etc. What I really like is the size. Full 5" but I can still use it one handed.

    I'm rooted, but I can't recal what ROM I put on the player. I'm going to revist the player as far as flashing, after getting my friend on Resurrection for the Fascy and reflash the ROM I put on the Charge.

    What ROM/Kernel did you put on the G5?

    I am running Entropy's kernel on Eryigit's 3.0 rom. I am trying to figure out how to swap card spaces so it defaults to my 64gb as the internal sdcard. I have a link to it somewhere, but have to find it lol.

    Ollie where do you find the best forum for the Player, XDA? or somewhere else?

    Update: Ok I'm sold on Eryigit's since it has the customizable toggles. I am absolutely spoiled on those since getting them on the Charge with Tweaked ROM. I may have to move the Player up on the Project List. Development for the Player has come a long way in that past few months. When I looked earlier this year there was very little for the US Player.

    I use XDA.

    Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0, 5.0 - xda-developers

    The only thing to be weary of there is whether or not a kernel or rom is meant for our versions. All of the versions of the player are lumped into one section instead having individual sections.

    Since you have root, and so I assume you have CWM, you can flash the rom via CWM. It is a nice rom with launchers built in. It also has a ton of add ons like the SGS2 widgets, etc.

    Well that was fun. Tried to flash Eryigit's ROM and was having some problems (maps force closing) so I went to use the Odin version and now im pretty much bricked can't get it into download or CWM. I can't even power down the phone (stuck with a couple of icons on the screen) and not sure the Player can even be opened to do a battery pull. Sigh. Good thing I have multiple devices.

    Ollie if you think you can help can you PM me? Otherwise I'll be in the XDA forums looking for how to recover.
