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?

  • prashant

    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.

  • Ibrahim

    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.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      install samsung usb drivers in your computer from samsung’s page!

        Hey Neal,

  • rahul

    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.

    kindly guide.

  • Sanjeev Gupta

    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.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      you can install or go back to INU by installing DDJV9!

  • Sanjeev Gupta

    What I want to know is XXJVT Zipped files available on your site are same as what the official firmware in UK is based on.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      yes sanjeev both are the same!

  • Sanjeev Gupta

    Is this XXJVT same as the official version of 2.3.5 released in UK a couple of days ago? Does it support Hindi and other Indian languages?

  • Niki

    Hi
    Before every thing I have to thank u for ur best advices
    I want to upgrade my i9000 firmware to 2.3.5 but XXJVT seems to not support persian language. I heared that after installing this firmware I can install some custome rom that supports Persian language. Can u explain to me is that true or not and if its true, how should I do that and witch rom is compatible with this language?!!

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      thanks niki for your kind words, we will surely look into your persian request very soon!

      • Niki

        thanx Neal
        i’ll wait for that
        ur the best >:D<

    Hi NeaL:

    My first time here, and i want to thank you for a clear post on the setup instructions. Everything went well & working fine.

    I have probs setting up my sip/voip on my sgs – any ideas as to why in sip settings it will not save the input ?
    you might be wondering how i got to the sip settings on the ph. . . . i used a program called any cut to create a shortcut

    HELP ! What should i do? after i install updates of v4, i realise its for developer and i tried going into download mode to change it back to 2.3.5, my phone now cannot on. It just appears with a phone on the left, middle with triangle shape with exclaimation mark and on the right a desktop picture. all i can go into is download mode now

    Am planning to update firmware of my Samsung Galaxy S GT-i9000. Which is the latest stable firmware i shall update?

    Thanks!

      Install with XXJVT Firmware!

        Hi Neal,

        Thanks for you response. I installed this XXJVT. At first everything worked fine, but now the internet is very slow, youtube not at all buffering any videos but a circle plays in the middle indicating buffering. When i try to download any app from market, it often throws error as “connection timed out” with an option “retry”. What’s wrong with my phone? Awaiting for you response.

        Thanks! :)

    Just flashed my Vibrant from 2.2.1 to 2.3.5. Everything works great – but the phone won’t connect to T-mobile. Wifi works fine. I don’t think my phone is a GT variant (4G??) I bought my phone Nov 2010. Any ideas?

    • Chris Slattery

      Further analysis… my phone can see AT&T, but not the T-mobile network. My wife’s phone still running 2.2.1 can see the T-mobile network (5 bars) and the AT&T.

        1) While updating my firmware is it necessary that my PC should have access to the internet i.e. Internet connection is required?
        2) above here mentioned is that after your updating procedure is over you have to go in to the recovery mode so will i have to disconnect my phone or while the devices is connected i have to go in to recovery mode?

    Update my phone using this new firmware (XXJVT). Phone runs smoothly with no issues.

    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.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      Hi Jhun

      where can I find latest / new firmware (XXJVT)? I had upgraded to this firmware latly..

      How can that be fixed?

          I have followed all procedure step by step but I guess I messed during earlier upgrades and therefore have lost my Marathi/Hindi fonts.
          Please can you help how can I fix font issue? Currently am getting blocks when am trying to read these language fonts.

          I have got below url but fonts not working even after that.

          Another problem I faced is with contacts.
          After upgrade I somehow have lost my contacts now when am trying to take backup / import contacts with Kies. Kies fails “Failed to complete data backup for GT-I9000″
          Is there any alternate way of importing contacts

  • Imran Ithisham

    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…

      • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

        have you updated with XXJVU?

  • Lee Jeffery

    And yes, the cache was cleared from recovery mode like the instructions say

  • Lee Jeffery

    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.

    • Imran Ithisham

      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….

        Neal,

    My comments:

    I installed this one and wifi issue reamains…. from XXJVS, moved back again to 2.3.4, I found it fast and no issues with google accounts, but….. big but….. wifi disconnects every 30 seconds, confirmed, tried even rooting with the XXJVS which worked by the way and then applying the fixes you provided in the earlier version… (applied succesfully) but then again nothing happened, wiped cache, even wiped data… no change.

    2.3.4 XXJVR with phonefix is working for me now, hoping for 2.3.6 :) to fix most of this issues!

    • Jason

      Same here..reverted back to 2.3.4 xxjvr..so far this one is the most stable one

  • Deepak

  • Mahmud Koya

    Hi Neal,
    I have tested most of the updates you presented here since I owned my SGS GT-I9000 wherever required by Odin3. The PC at my home with OS Windows XP/SP2 does not recognize my SGS in Odin3 while other PCs with the same OS have done the job by Odin3 successfully. What could be the reason? I tried many ways ( restarted PC, installed KIES and even reinstalled a fresh copy of WinxXP/Sp2 and again installed KIES ect.) but no luck till now. Could you suggest something else?
    Thanks,
    Mahmudk K

    HEY NEIL WHAT ARE THE ENHANCEMENTS WITH THIS UPDATE

    THEY HAVE NOT BEEN MENTIONED WITH THIS UPDATE OF 2.3.5 XXJVT

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      yes because we haven’t yet tested the same as we posted as soon as we received the firmware! no major changes though!

  • Salu

    I found this firmeware a little bit slow…..
    XXJVS 2.3.5 was really fast
    Plus issues with market and google account, Took many restarts to finally sign in to google account so could access market !
    Plus sometimes software downloading from market fails.
    Lag also
    Well waiting for comments from more users….
    I am also thinking to downgrade back to XXJVS it was quick and had no issues or what so ever !
