How To Update Samsung Galaxy S I9000 to Gingerbread XXJVO 2.3.3 Firmware

Galaxy S 2.3.3 LogoGoogle has told that it will be rolling out the official Gingerbread 2.3.3 update for all the Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 phones around the world starting from mid of May and we are also soon expecting the arrival of the latest Android 2.3.4 update for Samsung Galaxy S. There are several ROMs which claim that 2.3.4 update has arrived for Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 too but there is no point in installing the buggy firmware or say not so ready firmware with worst ever battery power. So, as soon as 2.3.4 update comes out we will for sure cover an article on that.

Recently many users have said that 2.3.3 Gingerbread update is having lesser battery life compared to other firmwares and the same can be fixed in 2.3.4 update. But this new update which is dubbed as XXJVO just slightly improves the battery life marginally. Also, this version of the Gingerbread 2.3.3 version is the KIES leak as some of the users have received this update and is a stable one of all the recent. The reason being so many updates is that all the firmware issues are being addressed slowly in every version and is sent out for testing.


  1. @Neal Pradeep

    Can I check on Re-partition?


  2. I’m running the NEE version of JVH. If I install XXJVO can I change my CSC to XEU? (i’m in the UK) How do I do it??

  3. searching some firmware with android 2.3.4 rooted, with clockwork mode.. feel stupid to install any of them.. is there any easy flashing firmware like i really want… LOve the MIUI rom :(

  4. Does this version support Arabic or still not yet we don’t have a Gingerbread version for Arabic ?


  5. just a note to those unable to connect galaxy s to kies. I’m sure you’ve all done it but it may be worth re-checking that any previous pims software is uninstalled as it may be blocking the ports that kies uses to connect to your phone. In my case i had to kill palm hotsync manager, and kies connected like a dream. However, I would still say that as a piece of software, Kies stinks.

  6. how i entered download mode in galaxy s i9000 16gb

  7. using this for 2 days…installed 19th when posted….. I can say battery life improved !

    thanks Neil…

  8. how do you enable a clear/transparent background in the applications page/menu?
    one rom i downloaded had this in it how do i go about getting it back on this firmware?

  9. does this fw also have battery issues?

    i’m curcurently on JVB and the pohne dies in like 6hour at low usage -.-

    • JVH and JVO are the same in terms of batteries that are better than JVB’s but I think it’s better than this JVH sada.Ja JVO now use the batteries overnight spends about 3%. When you light up a wireless network can handle about 7 hours

      • and something else. I did this so I was perhaps a good battery. battery to 100%. shut the phone and charging another 30 min. while still on the charger push the arrow up, menu and buton for start and clear wipe chach.restart.

      • @sasa77ar JVO is better in 2.3.3 as of now compared to all the versions!

  10. Im using jvb, plz tell me is this fw better then jvb

  11. Neal what is the improvement this version over jvh. currently im on jvh.

  12. @NEAL. what are the improvements of this version over the XWJVB and XWJVH

    • my battery ran for 10 hours while i install all my apps and also got the livewallpaper cpu, i think,
      which hapen to consume tons of juice from your battery.
      compare that to the old version.

      does anybody knows when will the 2.3.4 be released?

  13. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHEN THE UPDATE WILL COME? HOPE IT WILL COME WITH ( HOW TO ROOT IT) btw, does anyone know how to install clockwork mode??? using this firmware XXJVO

  14. Shabbir Poonawala

    Is this upgrade also applicable to GT-I9003?

  15. No, no. This version still has battery issues and Android-OS issues.

    I wish Samsung would fix this. :/

  16. I wish I could update… but if I plug my usb cable into the computer, it doesn’t recognize the phone.. 90% of the time, the computer doesn’t react when I plug in the phone. the other 9.9% of the time, it says “usb malfunction. usb device not recognized” The cable feels very loose in the USB jack on the i9000.. I don’t know if the actual charger port is semi-broken, or if its something else with the phone.. I can charge the phone fine, but it won’t make a data connection..


      • do you really think I HAVEN’T tried that yet? I’ve installed, uninstalled, reinstalled, reuninstalled.. I’ve done everything I can think of on every forum I find suggestions on.. The only thing I haven’t tried yet is buying a replacement charging port and replacing it myself…

        • Did you try plugging the phone into other laptop/desktop?
          Maybe it’s the computer USB port damage, not the phone’s… :/

        • I’ve tried on a few of my computers: 2 Windows XP/7 laptops, 1 Macbook Pro, 1 desktop running Ubuntu 10.04.1, and one netbook running Fedora 15 Beta. NONE of them work. I have sent it to Immix Wireless to have it warranty repaired as the Samsung Phone support person couldn’t get it working as I was following their steps and it bricked my phone…

        • Sorry to hear that..
          it made you’ve no choice, all available approaches need a normal USB connection.
          Hope you get it back soon.

        • I had this same problem and all i did was turn my phone off and back on while still connected through USB and Kies recognised my phone…….. hope this helps

      • I have this same problem. After updating to Gingerbread 2.3.3, i can’t get my phone to connect to the PC. My PC doesn’t recognize the phone. It always states, “USB device not recognized”. tried reinstalling, nothing works. Does anyone knows what else to do??

    • plsw try aqnd activate USB DEBUGIN FROM YOUR PHONE SETTINGS

  17. Is there any difference between this 2.3.3 update and the version with P1000XXJPZ?

  18. Hi,

    I have just downloaded the above file “XXJVO Firmware Package” (for which I thank you!) but when I try to unzip it I am advised that password you supplied, namely ‘androidadvices.com’ is not the correct one.

    Can you help please?

    • Hi,

      Sorry about that, but when I copied & pasted it, it worked OK… strange!

    • @David Rolfe, How you Downloaded XXJVO Firmware Package , because i am not finding any option for that .

  19. Has the battery life improved from XXJVK? I have read a lot about how JVK has had the best battery life so far.. If this battery life is better, then it would definitely be to everyone’s benefit..

  20. why the 3g doesnt work??? I was lucky i rank my meteor (IRELAND) they sent me set up.. but would be glad if next update (coming soon) would incude 3g network, im on billpay so i really need it (FACEBOOK :) ) IM CHECKING THIS WEB SITE EVERY DAY.. BUT DONT KNOW HOW TO CHECK IF THE NEW UPDATE HAS COME ALREADY.. ( how to check it ) THANX ( sorry for my engl. Im originally from CZECH )

  21. Thank you, once again, for the clear and precise instructions. For some weird reason, my Galaxy S wasn’t connecting with KIES. So, this is the best method of updating my firmware! :D

  22. I have recently successfully updated my Galaxy SI9000 to Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread). Is it possible for me to update to Android 2.3.4

  23. how to root this XXJVO 2.3.3 Firmware pls let me know
