      Don’t worry, man. Search for xxjvs on our site, install proper drivers and then begin the xxjvs installation. You’d be okay. Just make sure you’ve the right device — which is Galaxy S GT-i9000 (check in phone’s settings – About Phone).

  • Rus

    Have the same thing like Felix. what to do? maybe it’s because I don’t have sd card/ and one more thing … I’m using Samsung for the first time and the downloading mode should it change or it’s just a diging robot?

    thank’s in advance!!!

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      Hey, search for XXJVR Firmware on theandroidsoul and install that. It’s latest and fast too. The one you’re trying to install was a testing build in fact. You’ll be fine, just follow the guide we’ve already made.

      Good Luck!

    I have a problem. my pc dont show added in the message box,what should i do ?

    • Rus

      U need to instal Keis on you Pc before doing the instalation of frimeware. otherwise phone won’t be seen in Odin pro. I have just finished the instalation of  XWJV1 and it work well but will try to find the new one that Kapil said. Good luck everything is working if u following the steps)

      • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

        Yes, you need kies for drivers. But we’re providing links for drivers in each of our post now, so there is really no need to install Kies. Plus, it’s recommended to not use Kies with Odin. Anyway take care to close Kies (exit it) every time you use Odin.

      • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

        Thanks for helping others, btw :)

  • Cstrender

    Thank you so much! Tried to upgrade my SGS with Kies yesterday. After the process was done my phone was totally bootlooping.. So I searched the famous internet and found this page. IM SAVED! Thank you so much for the guide and Thank You Lorbas for leaking it!!!!!!

Getting Error on Fascinate: Kernel Panic, Upload Mode, and red script covering the green android logo “RST_STAT = 0x4, PMIC_IRQ1 = 0x0, PMIC_IRQ2       = 0x0, PMIC_IRQ3, PMIC_IRQ4 = 0x0, PMIC_STATUS1 = 0x0, PMIC_STATUS2 = 0x0″ doesnt boot past this screen, goes through Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000 screen though.

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

      This ROM is only for Galaxy S i9000 (Global version). So it wont work on
      your Fascinate.

      • EthanR91

        First of all it says no where in the instructions that it wouldn’t work for the Fascinate, it only says for the Galaxy S. Second does anybody have any idea how to fix this? I cant get too recovery screen, only the error screen and download screen.

        • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

          Let me have a look. I’ll get you a good solution within an hour.

          • EthanR91

            No luck, now im just getting a screen with a phone and a computer with a ! triangle in between

        • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

          Okay I’ve found a solution for you. Hope it works.

          Go to the following page — http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1048380

          Scroll a little on the page and you’ll see installation instructions. These are the instructions that will get you a rooted Froyo ROM on your Fascinate. So follow the guide carefully.

          IMPORTANT! Please make sure that in Step 2 of the page you download the “ED01DB_DO_SHARK.tar” file (first in the list) and do not download anything else in given in Step 2.

          Hope it works. Good luck :)

        • ali

          Same I need help !!!!!

  • WebV

    Does this work for captivate ? US version?

  • Bhavish

    Would this work for the American version (T959) of the phone? I have a rooted Froyo on T959 (Samsung Vibrant T-Mobile).

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

      Sorry buddy! This is for Galaxy S i9000 (Global version) only. It’d not work on Vibrant.

  • Hippolds

    I have Sch-I500. Is there anyone who upgraded it to Gingerbread 2.3.2 or 2.3.3?
    Does the procedure above work for SCH-I500?
    Thanks.

  • Olly

    Can anyone tell me the best way of rooting Samsung Galaxy S, i used super one click to root it before but it doesn’t work no more?

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Kapil

      Hey, a newer and better method is available to root XXJVK Android 2.3.3 on SGS. It’s developed by Chainfire and we’ll covering it shortly — within 24 hrs, for sure. So, keep watching this space.

  • Olly

    Thanks alot guys, great help i’ve gotten from here and now i can say that i’m a proud owner of samsung galaxy s running 2.3.3 But i noticed that my applications are abit blurry or is it just me? Any help is appreciated!

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Kapil

      If you notice screen glitches on Android 2.3, make sure you flashed the with_bootloader version. That will fix it.

  • kk

    @ Olly,

    We have already upgraded to 2.3.3 which is very smooth , faster in processing and doesn’t crashes like 2.3.2 did.
    Gingerbread 2.3.3 is allot more stable then 2.3.2 . I’ll suggest you upgrade for new keyboard features and Best Apps management on Gingerbread.

  • Olly

    First i gotta say thanx coz everything worked fine. But on the negative side i seem not to be able to swype, everytime i try swyping i get a sound and a blue box over the keyboard. Can anyone help me out with this?

    Thanks @ shivam , I Have already Downloaded GT-I9000_XXJVK_XXJ.exe and Odin-1.7with.pit.512….zip .

    I’ll Upgrade to 2.3.3

  • kk

    Currently Using 2.3.2 and working awesome, It some times gives memory errors as i loaded more then 60 Applications , The only problem i faced was the proxy settings which were available in Froyo but not in Gingerbread . I tried Android Proxy but still not working.

    Should i upgrade to 2.3.3 ?

    IS there any proxy settings in 2.3.3 ?

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

      Don’t know about proxy settings, but 2.3.3 is worth upgrading — it’s faster & smoother than 2.3.2

  • Manoj

    I have Samsung Galaxy S LCD GT-I9003. is there anyone who has tried it on this model of Galaxy S. It is a little toned down version of the GalaxyS.

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

      I know of nobody who has tried it on i9003. Also i9000 ROMs generally don’t work on i9003..

  • Damodar

    hi,

    can i do this process for my samsung captivate I897, now using the version 2.2. I need 2.3 is this process works to my captivate

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Kapil

      Hey, this is not for Captivate users. Don’t try it!
      BTW, where are you from? India?

    • http://theandroidsoul.com Kapil

      By the way, you can try the Cyanogen Mod 7 ROM — it’s runs Android 2.3.3! Here is the XDA link — http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=978150. Know that applying the ROM is risky and you only are responsible. :)

    • http://theandroidsoul.com Kapil

      Make sure you have proper Drivers installed. I would suggest you to download Drivers from here and try it again:

      Do this:

      1. Disconnect your phone from PC and unplug all cables in your phone.
      2. Install the driver you downloaded using the link above.
      3. On phone, enable USB debugging. Press Menu key – Settings – Applications – Development – tick the USB Debugging – confirm with Yes.
      4. Restart PC.
      5. Switch Off phone and remove battery, sim card and external SD Card. Put battery back in.
      6. Go to download mode by pressing and holding these keys together – Volume Down + Home + Power
      7. Open Odin now.
      8. Connect your phone to PC now.

      Hope it works out for you. Lemme know.

  • ghost

    hi salmannizam,please let me know how to voodoo lagfix galaxy s with 2.3.2…..yhanks in advance
    my email-ghost.bhoot2k@yahoo.com

  • DanV

    contrary to what I have read about Gingerbread managing apps efficiently my battery life was extended by using Advanced Task Killer v1.9.3 build 63 and Memory Booster Lite V2.9

    after 24 hours on standby, battery was still at 90% (will continue testing for a few more days.)

  • salmannizam

    HI there I load up the beta version but as mentioned not to expect so much the ROM wasn’t much of something interesting but very basic..furthermore it really lags a lot till I got to use Voodoo lagfix Ext4 to enhance it..there is still more room for improvement and believe it can be improvised for better utility..for now I think the 2.2.1 is very much more advanced compared to the 2.3.2

  • kk

    If you have taken backup of your rom , then don’t worry .. You can retry again for 2.3 gingerbread , it won’t take much time if fallowed the steps properly .

  • Noman Tousif Ahmed

    Hey guys… thanks for the rom but how much time it takes to install it… for me its been 10 minutes and still no activity anywhere….

    I hope i have not bricked my phone :$

    • http://theandroidsoul.com Kapil

      Well, for me, it took max 5 mins — including odin and reboot and all. You can try using .512 pit file, if your first streptococcus isn’t a success. Hope it works out well for you too.

  • kk

    GingerBread is awsome Fast, Swift …. Still faced Kernal Stat reset msg . But still keeping it. The keyboard is kool by samsung.

    Thanks alot!!!

  • DanV

    Great directions success after 2nd attempt. Now I can compare Gingerbread to Froyo on my SGS. Best Regards

    • http://theandroidsoul.com Kapil

      Glad you got it right! I guess, you won’t see much difference in the benchmark scores, though :(

  • Jean-Noël

    installation réussie, tout marche bien, bravo et merci à vous!
    install: Ok, All works fine, thanks to you!

  • lonce

    Thanks Kapil but just reverted back to Resurrection via odin and then darky 9.3 final. Thanks though. @ghost.bhoot2k it kinda to late for that. i struggled to get this damn stock 2.3 off but i think i might stay a bit longer with darky till something stable come out with a a bit more juice.

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

      Cool. By the way, we’re about to come that too — full guide with video about how to go back to Android 2.2 again. The only thing I’ve come to hate with Android 2.3.2 beta ROM is the shortage of free memory — causing the Browser, Camera and other memory eating apps to hang the device or simply, FC.

      Glad you got your SGS alright!

  • ghost.bhoot2k

    plsssssssssss dnt waste ur time updating to 2.3.2…….its almost same.no changes at all.
    quadrant score only 957…..yuck….

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

      Quadrant is okay, doesn’t mean very much to me.. I had all my hopes tied to Linpack benchmark score — hoping it would shoot up somewhere near those HTC desires and N1s at 35-40 MFLOPS, but heck! my SGS finds it cool to stay at 13-14 MFLOPS. That it, huh!

    • salmannizam

      Hi there..very true indeed the current beta version lags a lot…thus used voodoo Lagfix to couple up the speed. In fact some regrets lingers for changing to the current ROM from the Darkys…Darky was pretty smooth and Launcher Pro made it more easy till 2.3.2 update made the Launcher Pro lagging when go to 3D Drawer mode..

  • lonce

    Hey does anyone know how to revert back to darky 9.3 final i’m stuck i can’t go back and i keep getting errors please help.

    • http://theandroidsoul.com Kapil

      Hey! Try Darky’s resurrection ROM. Or try a JPY ROM with Odin installation. Anyway, I’ll give it a try and let you know, if succesful (hope so!), alongwith a video. So, be back tomorrow — I hope you’ve that much patience.

    • salmannizam

      Hello..if u wish to revert back to Darkys, then I guess you need to downgrade ur Recovery (3e) to 2(e) to install CWM. You can log Woon to YouTube to look for installation of Darkys ROM where there is a link at e comments coloumn which is pretty. Useful in loading e said. ROM ” you willl need ordin to execute this task.

  • digidesign

    Thanks a lot!!!
    All works fine!!!

      I’m glad you like it!

  • Enrique

    Hi, yesterday i tried to flash with a rom that i dowload from XDA but the .zip files was 369 MB, and tried with odin 1.3 not 1.7. I did the flash and brick my phone, i spend about 4 hrs to put it back in action, what i see here its thar your file size its 241 mb, so its diferent and Odin 1.7, so i’ll try again maybe this time it works.

    I’m not certain but mi SGS is from Mexico Model I9000T, when i purchase the phone came with Eclair 2.1 so when i upgrade it to Froyo 2.2.1 the model change to I9000, so i dont know if that is a problem cause the original model was I9000T.

    So anyway im gonna try again today.

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com Shivam

      You bricked your phone yesterday and now you’re up to test another ROM.. Cool, I mean BRAVO! ;)

      So you got it working??

  • Armando Franco

    How long is this suppose to take? is it normal that it’s taking more that 15min and the blue bar isn’t moving?

  • Elie

    Hi ! Thank you for the Odin installation guide. I am using a Macbook Pro with heindall frontend installed. Can you please guide me on the installation ? Thank you in advance !

  • Juris

    Thank you! Everything works fine! Super!

    • Vince

      Yes it does work fine in the beginning. But the task manager does not work properly so the memory fills up quickly and the device starts to shutter. Two times even the kernel was shot down by apps. So i don’t recommend you to install this early beta atm.

      • http://theandroidsoul.com Kapil

        I agree with you. The browser sucks for now, due to lack of RAM available for it.

        The ROM feels fast in the beginning but that’s only because you haven’t loaded your apps on it. And once you do it — it hangs too often.

        I’m still using it, though. But I do feel the custom ROM I had earlier was much more fun. Hope the Final ROM arrives soon.

        BTW, what I like the most about this Android 2.3 beta ROM is the icon in the notification bar for installed apps from the market.

      • Juris

        I have no problems with the task meneger.Telefon graphic works quickly and smoothly compared to my previous 2.2.1. The only problem was with the maps, it hangs on the first time start, but now everything is ok.
