Update Galaxy S to Android 2.3.6 — SC02BOMKL1 Firmware. NTT Docomo Galaxy S Only!

Lets first be clear on this — this is not for your Galaxy S unless, you got it from NTT Docomo (Japan). If yours is not Docomo’s Galaxy S, flashing it will only result in FAIL (in red!) so I would suggest all international Galaxy S users to simple ignore this for now. FYI, SC02B is the code name of Galaxy S at NTT Docomo in Japan, and OMKL1 is the firmware name here.

And those who got one from NTT Docomo in Japan, go ahead and enjoy the Android 2.3.6.

Since I couldn’t install it too, being a international galaxy s phone user, let us know what changes you see in this build, except for obvious addition in the Android OS version.

Installation: Download the SC02BOMKL1 firmware (password: sampro.pl) and flash it using Odin3 v1.7. [Select the extracted .tar file in PDA tab and keep Re-Partition checkbox clear.]

Let us know what improvements you see.

As for non-Docomo users, I think Android 2.3.6 update for you too is on the horizon. Though, I think you’re not that eager for this — partly because you know nothing exciting will be there and mainly because we already got Android 4.0 custom ROM to play with. So, lets hope Samsung’s team leaks/releases an Android 4.0 update soon enough to make things peppy.

    Hey kapil, thanks for details. The flash says PASS in green color. However after auto reboot, it gets stuck at NTT DOCOMO logo. Any idea?

      Do factory reset from recovery mode. Then reboot. This should work, let me know.
