Galaxy S I9000

Update Galaxy S GT I9000 with Jellybean 4.2.2 Custom ROM Firmware – Guide

Procedure to Update Galaxy S GT I9000 with Jellybean 4.2.2 Cyanogen MOD 10.1 RC2 Firmware:

  • After placing the two files in your Galaxy S, disconnect and turn Off your phone so that it can be entered in the Recovery Mode.
  • Recovery mode in Galaxy S GT I9000 can be entered by pressing the Volume Up Key + Menu Button and then press the Power button. Just in case if the device gets turned ON in the normal mode, then you will have to retry the process of entering the device in the Recovery Mode.
  • In recovery Mode, clear the cache and wipe the data by selecting the appropriate options and then select “Install Zip from SD Card’ and select the Jellybean 4.2.2 Firmware Package then the Google Apps Package which you have placed in your device to apply the update.
  • It will take around 3 -4 minutes for applying the firmware. Once the firmware is updated successfully, you will need to select the option of “reboot system now” for rebooting the device in the normal mode.

Note: If the device gets into the boot loop sequence or say gets stuck in the welcome screen, just re insert the battery and re follow the above instructions so as to again follow the above mentioned instructions.

Do let us know in the comments section just in case if you face any issues in the process of firmware update in the comments section as we will try our level best to sort out the same. There you go, you have now successfully updated your phone on the latest firmware of Jellybean 4.2.2 firmware.

    After following all the above instructions, and installed Jellybean, my phone keep booting into CWM-recovery mode. I’ve removed the battery to redo all necessary but still got stuck at recovery mode. Please help!

    I am currently running on my I9000:
    Android ver.: 4.2.2
    Baseband Ver.: I9000XXJVT
    Kernel Ver. : 3.0.70-gb429ec3
    picky-ghost@cyanogenmod #1

    Cyanogenmod Ver. : 10.1-20130416-EXPERIMENTAL-galaxysmtd-M3

    I really like it so far. Is there any difference between that and this update? Is it worth while for me to update?
    Thanks! Keep up with the good work!

    When I try to install update from SD card, it writes after verification that “E: failed to verify whole-file signature” and then it aborts the installation process. What should I do? I rooted XXJW4 successfully but I can’t continue the process… Help me!

      Root the device, Install Custom Recovery Image with the help of ROM Manager and then re apply the custom ROM firmware

    Everything works perfectly but I’m having a heating problem which ultimately drains battery very quickly.

    Hoping for your any suggestion/help on this.

    And thank you for your continuous update/information on Android world.

    I’ve been using this ROM for about 5 days, and it’s excellent. Battery ok, never crashed and no problems with ‘over heating’. I’ve never before come across firmware that’s so stable. Practically perfect in every way. 🙂
