  3. i have 2.3.5 xxjvs and i have problems with that ,so i want to go back to official gingerbread 2.3.3 ,can i install this on the 2.3.5 ?

  4. If I apply this 2.3.3 upgrade will I still have the Samsung apps like Keyboard swipe?

  5. I followed your advie on my Samsung Galaxy S GT I9003. Everything went fine until the phone rebooted after I saw the “Pass Message”. My Phone is not rebooting at all and it is just a black screen of death. Before doing this, my battery had 100% power and I never unplugged the USB cable. In fact, I followed each and every step but my phone is not booting at all.

    I tried booting by long pressing the power key and then pressing the power, Volume down and home button but it does not work at all. Tried all possible combinations, but nothing works

    I have three questions

    1. How can I boot my phone?
    2. Have my Phone completely damaged?
    3. Should I take the device to a nearby Samsung service centre and get the device replaced (Phone age is only 6 months). Wil they replace the device is the phone does not boot at all (with full battery)

    I am eagerly waiting for your response

  6. ok so I upgraded Galaxy S yesterday to your version Gingerbread.. all seemed ok.. but now I am having voicecall problems… i place a call… it connects …i do not hear the other person [they hear me] … if i put on speaker it works… if i put head phones in it works..i can hear the call. If I receive a call there is no problem. Thinking there is something wrong with the receiver speaker.

    Any suggestions for what is going wrong…could it be the upgrade?

    Also now in Keis says : Firmware S/W version in your phone is not official version. Upgrade of unofficial version is not supported. What does this mean in practical terms?

    current firmwar version: PDA:JVK/PHONE:JVK/CSC:JVK (XXX)

  7. HEY NEAL…. i bought Galaxy s I9000 wid android 2.2 now i want to upgrade it…
    please tell me wich is the best android version for this device??? …which works perfectly…& improves the device rather than causing problems…THANX…help appreciated !!

  8. I just downloaded the zip file, but the CSC file doesnt seem to be in the folder. I Have downloaded it twice.
    Am i blind, or missing something.
