  3. Hi
    my device is a galaxy S GT I9000
    I’m currently running amestris 3.5 XXJVR (your tutorial = upgrade to Xtra long life battery amestris 3.5 Sep 2011).
    I’m considering upgrading to amestris 7.1 (your tutorial = upgrade to Xtra long battery amestris ROM 7.1 Jan 2012).
    Tutorial says to install XWJVZ. Thats OK. However, the pre-requisites for XWJVZ include a step to install XXKPQ on galaxy SL I9003 ???? Is this correct? galaxy SL I9003 ?
    thank you

  4. hye neal!

    ive tried re-install this firmware for the second time. on the screen, appears all the options: ‘reboot the system now, Wipe data/factory reset, Wipe Cache partition’. do i need to select the first option or wait for the phone to automatically reboot?? another thing is the phone takes such a long time to start up. how long will it usually takes to start up normally where it would appear the language settings, etc.


  5. that was one great guide! i am on 2.3.6 and its workin well! keep it ooooooooooooon!

  6. After firmware update is completed in Odin, my phone does not automatically reboots. I go to the recovery mode page and am prompted to click reboot now. After clicking, phone restarts, theme song plays and then the letter S just keeps getting highlighted and that’s all, phone does not even start! Help pls!

  8. I noticed that XXJVU is described as not fully stable, so is this still a good option to go for, or are you expecting a final version of the value pack to come out that I should wait for?

  9. Hi, could you please tell me what the most stable firmware would be for the GT I-9000. Or is there going to be a complete and stable version of ICS that I should wait for?

  11. Downloading webpage not available. I’ve tried it in the last few hours, but the firmware is not downloadable… Please help!
