How to Root Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 on Gingerbread 2.3.5 XXJVS Firmware

Root Galaxy S LogoIf you are the one who has recently updated their Samsung Galaxy Phone with the latest version of Gingerbread 2.3.5 now can root their phones safely and it doesn’t even take a minute to do so. But before you haste to the instructions there are some pre requisites you should follow and also there are few things which you should know before rooting your phone. The first and the foremost being if you root the phone, the warranty will get void and also if you are the one who knows to make full use of a rooted phone then only it’s recommended to root the phone.

So, before proceeding to reading the article make sure that you have successfully updated your Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 to the latest version of Gingerbread 2.3.5 XXJVS. If you are not sure of the version to which the phone is updated to then you can have a check on the same. All you need to do is to just go to the path in your phone that is Settings > About Phone > Firmware Version where you will find the version of Android OS where it will show XXJVS 2.3.5. If it shows any other version apart from this, then do let us know in the comments section so that we will find a corresponding rooting article for your version of firmware by giving the appropriate direct link.

Since many people ask on what are the major benefits of rooting the phone and why it’s done. Rooting basically opens up the device which means that it allows certain applications to make changes in the system level files which otherwise is not possible if the device is not rooted. There are many other hundreds of advantages of rooting as it basically opens up the device for any sort of customization.

The main advantages of Rooting are :

  • Rooting allows you to use tools like Voodoo & CWM,
  • Rooting allows you to convert file system from laggy RFS to faster EXT4,
  • Custom Firmwares can be installed on rooted phones,
  • Allows you to remove the system applications

How to Reclaim Warranty / Revoke Root Access:
Just in case if you have rooted your phone on XXJVS 2.3.5 Firmware and now you wish to un root / Revoke the root access of the device, all you need to do is to just follow the procedure to again apply the update of XXJVS 2.3.5. Please note that in this process you need to disable any Voodoo lag fixes if applied from the recovery mode or else it will brick your phone.

Note: We should not be held responsible or liable in any manner if anything wrong happens with your device, though which is a very unlikely if you follow the instructions which are mentioned in the article.

So, in the next page you will find the list of pre requisites which you need to follow before proceeding to the instructions to root which are mentioned in the 3rd page of this article..

    Hey – I’ve got that sound thing too. Happen’s everytime I root the phone after a firmware upgrade. I’m on 2.3.5 JVS at the moment.
    Anyway, my question was…. When I use bluetooth for phone calls in the car, I get a force close if I kill the call from the bluetooth. To get the unit to reconnect again, I have to reboot the phone. Is this a Gingerbread issue or because of the rooting? Is there a get around? It’s a pain having to reboot.

        I did clear the cache and wiped the data in recovery when I first installed XXJVS, but I’m happy to try that again.

        Also…. why the heck does the screen capture keep turning itself on randomly? The only way to get out of it without taking an actual capture is to lock then unlock the phone. Is there a fix for this? Can I delete it from the phone without affecting the phones operation?

    Hi Neal
    Thanks for all the updates for the sgs, my particular concern is the fact is when I make a phone call and want to end it, the phone doesnt go back into the mode for me to touch onto the end call. The phone has a blank black screen and doesnt even go back to applications or anything else. I wont even be able to turn it off. I am forced to take out the battery and restart my phone.

    This problem had occured ever since I switched to 2.3.4 xxjvr and extraordinary rom 3.4. It gave me trouble and wouldnt allow me to end calls properly. Therefore i re down graded to 2.3.3 because it was working better prior to updating to 2.3.4 but still the same thing happens now in the 2.3.3 xxjvr.
    Do you know what the problem my be? My mate suggested it may be the bootloader but i dont want to take any risks.

    Thanks Neal awaiting your reply

    Sir please advise me to root and update my Samsung galaxy Gt I9000 where my phone’s firmware is 2.3.3 with base version: I9000DDJV5 and build number Gigerbreed. DDJV9 to latest: Honey 5.0. Basically I do not know much about phones and I brought it about 4 months back and is with warranty.

    • Reply NeaL Pradeep September 16, 2011 at 1:51 pm

      yes you can update with XXJVS 2.3.5 first. I don’t feel the requirement of Rooting for you as you just update with XXJVS 2.3.5 first! and then you can slowly start updating other firmwares, we will guide you!

      Yes it supports!

      • Reply roshan May 16, 2012 at 10:13 am

        Doesn’t seem to be working though, there is no option to configure , just provides option to turn wifi direct on, but it doesn’t get detected by other devices.

    Everything else seems to work fine, but there is some problem about the Finnish localization. There don’t seem to be skandinavian virtual keyboard. All these skandinavian special marks (ä,ö and so on) are missing.

    wifi connection going.

    Thanks

    • Reply NeaL Pradeep September 16, 2011 at 11:36 am

      there shouldn’t be any isues, what do you mean by switching, go to connections and select the “Forget” option on the one which is already selected and then choose the other Wi Fi connection!

        Even I’m facing the same problem. When I turn on WI-FI, it is scanning and then turn off Automatically. Plz Help, Thnkz..

        • NeaL Pradeep October 11, 2011 at 1:44 am

          an all new version has arrived, Try updating with XXJVT 2.3.5.

    • Reply Ramshid October 10, 2011 at 12:36 pm

      Is d issue fixed. Even I’m facing d same. Now going to update to 2.3.4 itself…. :(

    After using this rooting procedure can I install custom ROM’s like Blockbuster 5.5, or extraordinary 3.5 on this firmware since that was released for XXJVR and now it is XXJVS? Or do I need to wait for further release of custom ROM’s?

    • Reply NeaL Pradeep September 16, 2011 at 11:45 am

      you can taste all of these and can decide on what do you need, all thanks to open sourceness of Android as no other platform allows such customization!

      • Reply Kartik Iyer September 16, 2011 at 12:14 pm

        Just to be doubly sure, that means, extraordinary ROM, simple Honey, etc… are not dependent whether the based firmware is XXJVR or XXJVS. But will by firmware version remain 2.3.5 (of XXJVS) or will it become 2.3.4 after the CUSTOM ROM install?

        • NeaL Pradeep September 16, 2011 at 5:50 pm

          please follow the procedure carefully!

    Hi Neal,

    I have Rooted it successfully. My set shows half Hindi/Nepali fonts, half are missing in sms and email. Can I read full letters of Hindi/Nepali in SMS and email? Please support me.

    • Reply NeaL Pradeep September 16, 2011 at 11:39 am

      there should nt be any issues like that but have you used any options from the Tweaks? If yes then again you need to apply XXJVS 2.3.5 fw AND then root the same again!

    Thanks for the excellent guides! Is there a way to convert to EXT4 for this stock ROM?

    • Reply NeaL Pradeep September 16, 2011 at 11:40 am

      yes you can first root the same and then with the help of CWM you can convert the file system!

      • Reply eden$ September 16, 2011 at 2:59 pm

        Thanks Neel. I have already downloaded cwm. But I don’t know what I need to do in order to convert the file system. Can you help?!
