Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 – Steps to Install Gingerbread 2.3.5 XXJVT Firmware

Samsung Galaxy PLUS LogoHold your breath as another update arrives this time in the form of Gingerbread 2.3.5 which is dubbed as XXJVT which is the successor version of XXJVS 2.3.5. It was last time when we saw on how you can apply the update of Gingerbread 2.3.5 but unfortunately most of the users faced some issues like force close errors and also the issues pertaining to the battery life. Since the firmware has just arrived and we thought to right away come up with the article so that you can experience one more FIRST from us to you from Android Advices rather than taking time in knowing the firmware enhancements at our end. So, let’s get started and see on how you can easily apply this all new Gingerbread release from the Samsung.

Please note that this firmware update which we will be seeing is not an official release from the Samsung, so it’s not recommended to use the KIES as a tool to backup all your data as this XXJVT 2.3.5 firmware as after the firmware update, it may or may not support the KIES tool. You can make use of other tips which we have mentioned to backup all your data. Also, there is no ETA on exactly when this update will be pushed via KIES tool but as soon as this update arrives, we will cover that one as well if at all there are any changes.

For your simplicity we have broken this article into different pages wherein in this page you will see the list of enhancements which this firmware comes along, in the next page you will find the list of pre requisites which you need to follow and then after that you will find the procedure to apply the update on your Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 phone. The best part of this update is that anyone from any part of the globe can proceed and apply this update, the only condition being is that you need to have a GALAXY S GT I9000 phone which is an unlocked one.

Rooting Information:
Applying this firmware update in no manner will be rooting the device, so there is no fear of losing the warranty. Also, just in case if you have already rooted the device then after applying this update the rooting access will be revoked. To root the phone again, we will be coming up with a  fresh new article wherein we will check out on how you can root the same.

Disclaimer:
Please note that we should not be held liable or responsible in any manner if anything wrong happens to your device which is the most unlikely if you follow the instructions as prescribed in the due course of this article.

Special instructions to users on Custom ROM:

  • Just in case if you are on the custom ROM like Simply Honey, Extra Ordinary, Amestris or any other custom ROM then you will have to  first turn Off the phone and then you will have to enter into the recovery mode. The recovery mode can be entered by pressing  Volume UP on Volume Down Key + OK button, and holding both simultaneously press the Power Button.

Please note that if you are using any other kernels apart from the default ones or if you are using the Voodoo kernels then in the recovery mode you will have to select the “advanced” tools and then you will have to disable the Voodoo options if at all if there are any. Alternatively, to get the best battery life, you can also clear the battery stats which too will be there in the advanced tools.

  • Upon getting into the recovery mode, you will have to select options Wipe data/factory reset and also you need to select Wipe Cache partition after which you need to reboot your device by selecting reboot system now after which all the cache files will get deleted. So, once you are done with the above procedure you are now all set to proceed with the instructions to proceed to the next page where we have listed all the pre requisites one has to follow before proceeding to the firmware update.

    Hi Neal,

    On the previous page it says “You should have the ADMIN privileges along with the full access of the USB Read / Write access so that all the data can be read / written from / to the phone”

    How do I find that whether I have admin privileges on my phone or not?

    I am able to read/write normal data to/from my internal / external SD card through USB. Is that enough?

    Hi Neal,
    I have installed the firmware and it’s working fine. The firmware is very stable and I can clearly see the battery improvements.I am Indian galayx S user.
    The only problem I am facing is the com.android.phone process stops working very often specially after the end of a call. According as the instructions I did clean the cache partition and factory reset after installing the ROM.
    Please help me solving the issue.
    Thanks.

    Hi Neal,

    I have a problem with my S9000. whenever i connect the phone to any computer, its gives an error as “USB not recognized, install drivers”. I have also tried downloading latest drivers from net but its still the same.

    Last week I went to Samsung customer care and they will install / flash my phone (or something) and the problem will disappear, but they are charging too much money for it.

    Can I do it myself? I need to upgrade it to 2.3.5 from 2.2 froyo.

    Please advise.

    After a disappointing 2.3.4 JJVR (dialer & messaging problem, overheating & phone hangs a lot) i have decided to go to official 2.3.3 , which is very-very slow. So dont understand what to do as indian official 2.3.4 DDJV6 is very slow. After seeing this 2.3.5 as official version i have updated my sgs but again as some people mentioned wifi is a problem that means it is not official? Do we have any official /leaked stable and fast firmware for sgsi 9000. i am losing faith in sgs and in android.

    So if I update to XXJVT, it will no longer be an INU ROM. So when 2.3.5 is available in India, it won’t upgdate to Indian version. Is that right? So if and when you notify that Indian version of 2.3.5 is available, will I need to roll back to DDJV9 amd then connect to Kies? Or will zipped files for manual update be made available here? Please clarify.

    One problem I encountered though…. Android Market limits installation of the applications. Is says phone memory is full. Download apps from Samsung Apps.. no issues at all. Guess it’s one bug for this firmware…

    Still using it and monitoring what other issues it has. I’ll post any issues I found.

    BTW… for those having issues connecting to internet… update ur APN settings. As for the WiFi’s, I don;t see any issues on this. Just follow the instructions carefully. Do a factory rest and wipe cache. Everything should work fine.

    Hi All,

    Just like Theo said, there has been so many negative comments about this update but I haven’t had any of the above mentioned issues so far… I have updated my phone to all the firmwares that has been released from this site and I have not come across any firmware that was as reliable as the 2.3.5 XXJVT… 2.3.3 DDJV9 (Asia Pacific) version was stable too but lags most of the time… Initially I found problems when signing into the Market (Connection Error) but later realized that my phone keeps switching between EDGE and HSDPA frequently and that’s the reason why the Market gives an error when it lost internet connectivity… When I have a stable network connection, the market works just fine… WiFi works smooth too and talking about smooth, I should say that this firmware is smoother than butter. I haven’t rooted my phone because I feel the phone is working just fine and I don’t want to mess it all up… I had a factory reset on the phone before I applied the update and I ticked the re-partition (risky) option in ODIN, the rest I followed whats mention in the site… No force close, no lag and the best so far…

    Thanks Neal…

      Get into recovery mode (Vol Up + Home Button + Power) then select wipe cache partition and wipe data / factory reset… I have had the same problem and this solved it… You might want to format your external memory card as well if your device is slow at start up but that is not always necessary…

    I’ve followed all the steps one by one, I’m now on this step :

    “So, once the firmware update is done, you will see that the phone will be re started and then you will be asked to enter the Google account credentials as well as the Language preferences. Now, after this you need to turn Off the phone so that you can then enter into the recovery mode. The recovery mode can be entered by”

    But it doesn’t take my credentials even if they’re correct :s

    Well here we go again. Only a week ago I dowloaded and setup XXJVS, only to find it had a heap of problems, most of which I listed here under I9000 XXJVS speak your mind. So JVT comes along, again saying its fixed the bugs……and it hasnt. I described the previous firmware problem as being the bluetooth drops out when a force close error comes up. This drops my headset out which then takes 5 minutes of me rebooting the phone and headset and repairing eveything. On JVT ist does the same thing but I found out why, the force error appears to come from or forces the airplane mode to turn on which shuts of course all wireless activity, being 3G, Wifi and bluetooth. This software is a bit faster but a bigger pain in the backside than JVS and now im thinknk of going back to JVO. Any body got any ideas. Why cant samsung just get this right.

    • Reply Imran Ithisham October 22, 2011 at 11:29 am

      I didn’t find any problems mate, try the procedure again but this time do a factory reset before you update and format your external SD card. Once you finish with the update do not setup your phone, switch the phone off right from the setup screen and get into recovery mode and do a factory reset + wipe cache partition… Your phone will be free of conflicts from previous versions and applications… I don’t have any force close errors and it has been a week since I updated, don’t go back to XXJVO or XXJVS, they all have their own problems since I have had both on my phone… Good Luck….
