Manual Update Galaxy S I9000 with Jellybean 4.2.2 Android Firmware – Easy Guide

Procedureto Update Galaxy S GT I9000 with Jellybean 4.2.2 Android Firmware:

  • Once downloaded, connect your Galaxy S to the computer with the help of original USB cable and place the two zip files in your device, preferably in the external sd card.

Note: If the device gets into the boot loop sequence or say gets stuck in the welcome screen, just re insert the battery and re follow the above instructions so as to again follow the above mentioned instructions.

    I followed step by step everything that you wrote here but after choosing the Android zip file it started to upgrade then it rebooted and opened the phone to a screen that shows a RED android icon which says :
    powered by
    Mackay Kernel

    What happened? What should I do now?
    Phone doesn’t even want to close when I hold the power button and doesn’t restart or start in recovery mode anymore.

    Please answer asap.
