    The first time I tried this method, it got stuck at “Setup Connection”. And although it says to just restart the entire process from the beginning if this happens, I wasn’t sure how to go about disconnecting the usb cord without possibly bricking my phone or screwing up the drivers. Eventually I ended up just closing Odin and popping my battery off because I couldn’t power down while in Download mode. But then I go to turn it back on and I got a screen with a picture of a phone and a computer with a yellow triangle and an exclamation point in the center, which did NOT look promising. And nothing changed when I tried to connect it in download mode either, so I started freaking out! You just have to disregard this little indescrepancy and follow the instructions like normal and, hopefully, it’ll work eventually! It did for me on the second try-thank God, or Krishna, or Mohammad, whoever! Just thought I’d add that in case anybody else has this happen to them in hopes of saving them from soiling their skivvies! Thank you so much!

    After downloading the firmware I’m not given the option to extract or put in a password….please let me know what I’m doing wrong

      Download and Install ‘7-zip’ free file extraction software (search on internet) and then, right click the firmware file you downloaded and then, select 7-zip – extract here option. This is how you extract it.

        Thank you for the speedy reply
        I’m trying that right now

      • PrettyBougie

        It’s still not working for me :(
        I’ve downloaded the 7-zip software and right clicked on the firmware
        (My firmware download comes up as a blank paper with the right corner folded down) is that right? or have I messed up?

          Hey, check out this video, which outlines how to install a firmware on Samsung Galaxy S2.

          Of course, that’s not your phone but you can see in this video how it’s done.

          Btw, you sure your phone is Galaxy S 4G, and that the above firmware is meant for your phone. What’s the model number of your phone under settings – about phone?

          • PrettyBougie

            And what video?

  • Perkinsrogerl

    Id like to do this but every time I click on the link to watch a video I get the Yellow Pages or Macys!  How do I get around this?

      This video here shows how to install a firmware usually on Samsung’s android phone using the Odin PC software — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuTTctDWW2g

      Watch it to get the idea of how firmware is flashed on Odin.

      Then follow the guide above and you’ll be fine. I hope it helps you.

    Noticing the Signal Strength bars aren’t registering on mine, anyone else notice, or are they just really sensitive now?

  • Weyland Yutani

    Thanks for this, have 2.3.6 running on my T959V. Have you noticed any performance issues? Also, are there are any custom ROMs available for the T959V?
