  • Recovery mode in Galaxy S GT I9000 can be entered by pressing Volume Up Key, Center button, and holding both simultaneously press the Power Button.
  • Now, in recovery mode, select “install zip from sd card” > “choose zip from sd card” and choose the zip file which you have placed in your phone. Once the file is selected, it will take around 6 – 7 minutes to apply the same.
