    Hello Dear,

    Please guide me with the upgrade. My GT-I9000 has 2.3.5 Gingerbread with XXJVS firmware. KIES is not supporting upgrade, why?

    Which upgrade should I use which will be supported by KIES?

    Awaiting your reply,

    Thanks.

    HI Neela,
    my device is galaxy s GT I9000 firmware 2.3.4 build no. gingerbread xxjvr baseband version I9000 XXJVR kernel version 2.6 35.7 – I9000XXJVR – ch425308 se. infra@ SEP – 63#2

    My problem:
    I was having force close and device freezing.
    I did hard reset and then connected device to computer using usb cable. I then did data restore using KIES. Information latter came on saying there is a new update for my device so I carried out the update process.On the computer the updated version was given as firmware: PDA: JVR / PHONE: JVR / CSC: JVR(SWC).
    When I finished I checked the firmware on the device and it was still firmware 2.3.4 and XXJVR.
    I also observed the following:-
    1. I say an application is uninstalled and after putting device off at night you switch on next day the application re install by it self.
    2. If you copy say music on device and next day you switch it on the music is deleted.
    3. Cannot access whatsapp and skype applications and also cannot download and install any application from android market.

    However all phone functions are working.

    Please advice.

    Hey,

    I did this update and its working fine, only issue is that everything is in polish. Is there a way for me to get the update in the English language? Sorry I was unaware that this is a polish launch but I had the XXJVT and my signal strength was terrible I always restarted my phone to get signal or to get off emergency call only. So Im hoping this update would fix that problem? Please let me know as soon as you can man thanks!

    I’m currently on XXJVQ (as it was most stable out of 2.3.x releases, tested till ‘T’ version) – can it be upgraded directly to this XWJVX?
    Does it have a polish language (2.3.5 official, from your site, didn’t have it, so it was quite a problem for my friend, which does use this phone)?

    Hi Neal. I too had the T mobile splash screen but not until after I had a whole series of error messages as the update tried to install, including unable to load disk. In the end, the phone just kept on cycling between the T mobile screen and the Samsung power up screen to the extent I had to remove the battery to stop it.

    I tried it again, same result, and in a bit of a panic, I revert back to XXJVT and all is well, phew. Thought you might like to know.

    As I’ve installed a number of your upgrades before without any problems, I wondered if this might have been caused because I recently updated to Ext-4, what do you think?

    The T mobile screen is coming at startup. It doesnt asked for language selection but softwareversion showing 2.3.6.

    Hey Neal

    Right now I’m on 2.3.5 XXJVT and I want to upgrade to 2.3.6 …. there is one thing not clear for me… after the update to 2.3.6, is it obligatory to enter into recovery mode and wipe data/factory reset and clear the cache, or not? Can I keep and use the apps that I have now with 2.3.5? Thank You in advance. Regards, Dejan

    Dear Neal,
    It’s really a happy piece of news about another FW for the SGS GT-I9000.
    There is a confusion when the ‘Quick Pre Requisites’ link in this article is taking us to the article ‘Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 – Steps to Install Official Gingerbread XXKPQ 2.3.6 Firmware’, where it talks about the update of SGS SL I9003.
    Would you comment a little more in details.

    Thanks,
    Mahmud K.
