After Build 5, Build 8 & Build 10 of the latest Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 Firmware, it’s now time for Galaxy users to update with Build 13 of ICS Android 4.0 firmware. This comes at a time when we saw recently on how you can update with the beta version of Value Pack for your Galaxy S smartphone. Also, according to the sources we understand that very soon a new stock version of value pack for Galaxy S will be coming which may be dubbed as XXJVV or XXJVW Android 2.3.6 version. We will be covering the same at the earliest.
Note: Please note that this is not a Full-fledged version and is a test version. Just in case if you are eager to try this out you can but it’s not a full-fledged working version of firmware.
Disclaimer: At Android Advices, we have made sure in all respects that all the information regarding the firmware update is mentioned correctly in this article. We hold no responsibility in any manner just in case if any damage happens to your Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 which is a very unlikely event if you follow the instructions carefully. This update can only be applied to the devices whose phones bear model number as I9000 and not even I9000B / i9000T etc.
So, before you proceed, you need to ensure that you follow all the instructions properly or else there is a probability that it may brick the phone for which we should not be held responsible for.
As advised always, we recommend you to back up all the data present in your phone before you apply this so that just in case if the data gets lost or corrupted, the same can be restored easily.
Text messages – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Phone Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log –Call Log and Restore
Pictures, Music, Videos, Filesetc.– Copy to internal / External SD Card,
Internet & MMS Settings – Backup all the settings from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names”
Notes – Manually you need to note down or need to transfer to Evernote.
Apart from that you also need to ensure that the phone has a minimum charge left of 60% so as to ensure that the phone doesn’t get turned Off in the middle of firmware update.
Since there are no exact things which developer has mentioned about the enhancements, we are not sure of the same either as we couldn’t make a complete list of enhancements which comes with this version.
So, let’s get started with the list of instructions which you need to follow in the next page.
