    please any one help me, I’m trying to update my software from 2.2.1 to 2.3.4 my phone is a Galaxy S GT-I9003, it’s been 15 mins, and the message in Odin  is still setup connection, anybody please help  me. thank you

    • Disconnect your phone. And just switch it on.

      And DON’T TRY AGAIN. The Android 2.3.4 firmwares that we have posted on our
      blog are all meant for Galaxy S i9000 only.

      So you may brick your phone if you try to flash them on your Galaxy S i9003.

    I just flashed EZRom to my Galaxy S Vibrant and now the boot screen in stuck in loop, I cannot get rocovery or download mode to work. Any suggestions?

  • Dabideen Deran

    Ok so ICS source code had now been released by google. How long before we get a custom ROM featuring ICS for the Galaxy S 2?

  • Donderbjr

    Is ICS available for the Sprint samsung galaxy s2…..

    • No.

      We’ve no idea why any developer hasn’t started porting it to Sprint’s variant of S2. But I think porting won’t be hard, and once these WIP ports gets some stability, you’ll have a port for your phone pretty soon too, then. I think porting a rom from one Samsung Galaxy S2 to other won’t be that laborious task. We’ll see, anyway, and if when we find one, we’ll report it for sure.

  • Ashish

    is it possible  to update 2.3.3 to 2.3.5

  • Mclaughlin Peter

    reason my miui isn’t updating anymore past v1.12.23 for galaxy S1 ?
    miui support has not responded to me, nor has anyone an answer. I’ve
    tried 3g and wifi updates. And their webpage in any browser,
    pc/laptop/mac/ipad, the website is cached… not updated? suddenly like a
    year old, the webpage is mia?

  • Dguitarified

    So.. Just making sure, “GT-i9000” from the “COMPATIBILITY” box strictly means that the Model number from the phone needs to be ONLY “GT-I9000” right? So if my Model number is “GT-I9000M” instead of “GT-I9000” it wouldn’t work? 

    I’ve searched up in the search tool box of this site and there wasn’t anything that mentioned “GT-I9000M” so I was just wondering before I actually loaded up the file. I’d be glad if you can answer back to my email if it is possible or not. Thank You!

    • It has to be gt-i9000 only. It may work out for i9000m too. But I’m not too much sure of that.

      So, you can still try this and it may work out fine for you.

      But, try this only if you know how to install a i9000m firmware back on your phone to restore things back you current rom. Do take adequate backups (from titanium backup and clockworkmod recovery). Good luck!

      Also, if you try this, do let us know how it works out for you.

    Hi there,
    I am looking for specific information on upgrading my samsung galaxy s gt i9000″T”. I have found lots of helpful info on your site for the i9000 but nothing really specific to i9000T. I am looking to see what further firmware upgrades i can do from 2.3.3. Any help would be much appreciated.

  • We asked specifically in the thread not to mirror, can you please fix and redirect back to ACS for the download link? We dont mind providing links, but ask that you honor our requests. Thank you.

    PLEASE DON’t POST DOWNLOAD LINK ANYWHERE ELSE.. Just link to this thread.

  • Veju_sese

    what to do???  plz help, i just accidently turned of my samsung galaxy s2 while instalation process!!!!! (yes yes, the battery was removed) and phone just stoped showng any signs of life…. 😀
    however now even those “Volume_UP+Home+Power” can’t help with or without battery…please, help :Dcomputer don’t recognice my phone anymore…

    • I think you need to use USB Jig in order to boot your S2 into Download Mode. Search for it on your local eBay site. It doesn’t cost much, around 2-5 US Dollars. Otherwise, take it to your local Samsung dealer.

    Is Samaung Galaxy S II 19100G will upgrade into ICS android 4.0 operating system

  • Arpansaha220

    Is there any firmware launched for Samsung Galaxy S II GT-19100G?

    • Abhijeet Mishra

      Unfortunately, no. Samsung seems to be focusing on the I9100. The I9100G may get it, but at a later date.

    – Support for ANDROID TABLETS internal memory and GALAXY NEXUS (we’re the only one with this kind of support).
    – Support vfat (sdcard) and ext2,ext3,ext4 filesystems.
    – Support for hundred of file types.
    – Support USB storage devices (if your ROM detect it like a USB massive storage device).
    – New UI
    – New “Request your filetype” tool to let users to request for a customized file type. We update the app with this filetype quickly.
    – New Total Recovery method. ( it recovers a lot of files in a little time ).
