It’s a time of firmware leaks for AT&T variants of different Samsung devices it seems. After a firmware leak for the AT&T Galaxy S3, an Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) firmware has been leaked for the physical keyboard powered AT&T Captivate Glide. AT&T is yet to officially release the Android 4.0 update for the device, so people eager to try out ICS can flash the leaked firmware to give it a spin as ICS is quite a major update over the now-aging Gingerbread.
The guide below will help you flash the firmware – UCLG9 – on your AT&T Captivate Glide. Keep in mind that since this is a leaked firmware, they may be a few bugs here and there (though it should be stable and good for everyday use). Also, this will not increase the binary flash counter on the device as it is an official firmware.
Read on to find out how you can update your AT&T Captivate Glide to Android 4.0.4 with the UCLG9 firmware.
This guide below is compatible only and only with the AT&T Captivate Glide. It’s not compatible with the Rogers variant of the device. Check your device’s model in Settings» About phone.
The methods and procedures discussed here are considered risky and you should not attempt anything if you don’t know completely what it is. If any damage occurs to your device, we won’t be held liable.
How to Update AT&T Captivate Glide to I927UCLG9 Firmware
- [Important!] This procedure will wipe all your data, and will also format your internal SD card (but will not touch external SD card). So make a backup of everything. Use this Android backup guide to know how you can backup your installed apps and app data, then copy the internal SD card contents to a computer (which will include the backed up apps).
NOTE: Don’t forget to at least make a backup of your APN settings, which you can restore later if your data connection does not work after installing the ROM. Use the backup guide to find out how.
- Download and install the drivers for the phone on the computer.
32 bit (x86) Windows | 64-bit (x64) Windows
- Download the firmware.
Download I927UCLG9 | Filename: I927UCLG9_OneClick.exe | Size: 664 MB
- Turn off your phone. Then boot into download (odin) mode. To do so, hold down the Volume Up key and pressing the Power key once. Release the Volume Up key when you see the options screen. Press the Volume Up button one more time to enter Download Mode.
- Double-click on the I927UCLG9_OneClick.exe file to open the Odin flashing program.
- Then, connect the phone to the computer with the USB cable and wait for Windows to finish installing drivers. Odin will say Added!! in the message box on the bottom if the phone is detected. If not, make sure the drivers are installed and also try using a different USB port – preferably a USB port on the back if using a desktop computer.
- Now, hit the START button to start flashing the firmware on your phone. When the flashing is complete, your phone will automatically reboot — and when you see the Samsung logo, you can safely unplug the cable. Plus, you’ll get a PASS message (with green background) in the left-most box at the very top of Odin.
What to do if Odin gets stuck: If ODIN gets stuck and doesn’t seem to be doing anything, or you get a FAIL message (with red background) in ODIN, disconnect the phone from the PC, close ODIN, remove battery, re-insert it, then repeat the procedure from step 4.
