      as of now its the only one!

  • Angad

    Hi Neal,
    I just wanted to know why do we first flash with speed mod kernel ?
    Because the Cyanogen Mod 7.1 has its own kernel in the RAR file (it has z-image)
    That all.

    Thanks

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

      its recommended by the developer! some files from speedmod are necessary!

  • Mkhunior

    When i get into rom manager because i didnt see the cwm app what do i do.

  • Jivraj

    Hi Neal..I followed each n every step in this article, after installing cyan 7.1, in about phone the kernel does not show as the \speedmod\ but the \pawitp\ kernel. is that ok? or did something go wrong? cause i did the speedmod kernel and it did show that it had speedmod kernel before installing cyan. plz reply thanx.

  • joven

    hi neal,

    i successfully installed ICS Cyanogen MOD 9 Android 4.0 Firmware, but i found out that some features is missing and my sd card showing no files. however, would you please provide some instructions how to downgrade my phone to its previous firmware?!

    thank you.

    Hi Neal, I have successfully updated but not able to send SMS. When i wanted to update the message centre no, i didn’t find any such option. Could you pls help and guide.

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

      you need to update with XXJVT version as its a beta and unstable version!

      • Subrat

        Thanks for the reply Neal but do you mean i can’t be on Cyanogen Custom ROM? I had already updated to XXJVT and post that only i updated to Cyanogen. The only issue is SMS, rest all seems fine. Anyways if that is the only option then can i simply follow the process mentioned in “http://androidadvices.com/samsung-galaxy-gt-i9000-steps-install-gingerbread-235-xxjvt-firmware/”. And also this will ensure my phone not rooted any more as the process mentioned here would unroot the device. BTW could you pls suggest some stable custom ROM’s which would support XXJVT.

        Thanks in advance.

    First of all thank you very much for providing the best solutions to update Android phones with simple procedures. Keep up the good work buddy.

    Please let me know the best ROM from my Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000. The reason why I want to change the software is that there is no option to input the proxy settings in wireless settings advance options even when I updated it to Cynogen 7.1 following your procedure online. Please help.

    Thanks

  • AlonZ

    Hi Neal,

    Your instructions refer to XXJVS, i have XXJVT rooted with clockworkMod, can I proceed without reflashing with XXJVS?

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

      yes you can!

  • Eyoab

    after i press on install zip from sd card it just goes blank and doesnt do any thing what should i do (i tried again and again following the instructions).

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

      WHICH VERSION YOU ARE ON?

  • billy

    just a quick update. flashing cm7.1 on xfjva is not recommended :)

    i’ve re-flashed it on xxjvt and it’s now more stable.

    issues that i faced (at one time or another) with cm7.1:

    1.force close – a lot of times. no specific apps that i know of. solution – re-installing, the affected apps works fine after that but very annoying
    2. freakiest of all was my wifi connection keeps activating by itself even after turning it off. solution – wipe cache and re-flash cm7.1 in recovery mode
    3. titanium backup doesn’t seem to work well with cm7.1

    overall, i’m very pleased with cm7.1 except for the various issues highlighted, which, although annoying, can be resolved with re-installation and re-flashing.

    personally, i find MyBackup works best with CM7.1

  • Arvin

    Maybe its not compatible with xxjvt!

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

      there are some issues with the CM7!

  • Arvin

    when i install it on xxjvt, it restarts again and again. i think i brick my phone? is your instructions correct?

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

      clear the cache from the recovery, if problem persists then apply the fix for the same which we covered on androidadvices.com!

  • billy

    ooh! yikes!! i just completed updating it with CM7.1. it seems to be working fine so far…

    i’m in the process of restoring from Titanium (its stuck at restoring ‘Social Hub’ at the moment).

    so, far my main issue with CM7.1 is that it doesn’t seem to support swype.

    should i uninstall CM7.1 then? hmmm….. :)

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

      the new update of 7.2 will soon be coming!

  • billy

    Neal, my Galaxy S is running on XFJVA.
    Baseband: I9000XXJVT
    Kernel: 2.6.35.37-I9000XFJVA-CL621561 root@DELL124#2
    Build: Gingerbread.XFJVA
    Root: CF-Root-XF_TSR_JVA-v4.3-CWM3RFS

    Am I good to go?
    Thanks!

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

      no, its not recommended for xfjva!

  • Arvin

    Neal, how can I remove the Semaphore Kernel. I’m on 2.3.5 XXJVT, and I don’t know how to do it. Can you help me with this one? I want to install cyanogen. Reply ASAP! Thanks!

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

      clear the cache from the recovery mode and then apply with any stock update!

      • Arvin

        If I clear the cache, it can also disable or remove the voodoo lagfix? Or after I clear the cache, I can proceed on installing the stock
        firmware?

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

          YES YOU CAN INSTALL AFTER THAT!

  • Masakyo

    I’m currently on XXJVT 2.3.5. I’ve rooted using the guide provided here. I’ve successfully installed CM7.1 without installing the Speedmod kernel as my current root already has the CWM app. CM7.1 is my first CM, it’s simply OSUM and I thank you for all your help! Best Android site ever……………better for me than Samfirmware or sammobile for sure! keep up the good work!

    Hi Neal

    Please help. I followed the instructions carefully (updated to XXJVS 2.3.5, root it, installed SpeedMod and followed by CM7.1) and restarted my phone. but my phone just keep looping (display Samsung screen, CM7 splash screen, ~some commands~, and the loop repeats) after it restarts.
    I have no voodoos installed.
    Any idea why? Please help!!

    Thank you very much!

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

      is your device rooted? just re follow the instructions!

  • xorex65

    I have upgraded to 2.3.5 JVT before doing the cyanogen update to 2.3.7, but i realized that my baseband is now JVK. Is there a way to get back to JVT?

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

      its ok, as long as the firmware is working correctly there are no issues!

  • Agbeshie Desewu

    Hi. I’ve done eveything but when i’m in the recovery mode, when i select the install zip from sdcard or anything the screen goes off.. when i press it again the screen comes back on, it doesn’t select anything. I tried to reinstall the speedmond again but it didn’t work.. What seems to be the problem??

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

      is voodoo installed? if yes then uninstall and then try, its all mentioned in the instructions!

    • euchye

      I assume that you used the volume button to navigate up/down the menu, and which button did you use to select the “install zip…” option?

    • BSBhat

      Hi Agbeshie Desewu,

      A small change here, to select the file you neeed to press the home key rather than usuak home key :)
      Hope this helps.

      • BSBhat

        Hi Agbeshie Desewu,

        Sry for the typo.

        A small change here, to select the file you neeed to press the Power key rather than usual home key
        Hope this helps.

    • rex xo

      i realized this happens if i press the “home” / “menu” button, but you can press the “power” button instead to select the options. i managed to install successfully using this method.

        with such phenomena were the second time, for the first time when I had Super OSR V2.2.04 However, this rum is also made CyMod basis. When I installing this rom I sd card was removed and only full installing I put back
        Thanks

        • xorex65

          i am not sure if this is the cause: The ext-sdcard is now mounted as “emmc” (/mnt/emmc) and not as “ext-sdcard” anymore. I also found my ‘ext-sdcard’ as “blank”, until I noticed that it is mounted as emmc now..

    What is the use of downloading the file again when my phone is unable to boot and Odin does not detect the phone?

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

      which base ROM you had used?

  • Peewo

    Hi Neal

    I updated my SGS to Cyanogen Mod 7.1 as per your instructions. After playing with this ROM for a few hours I decided to revert back to my previous ROM HTC Sensation. I went into recovery mode and selected the HTC zip file and rebooted the phone.

    On rebooting my phone freezes with the logo Galaxian displayed, the blue loading indicator line at full bar across the screen and the message ‘is now loading’

    When I go back to recovery mode I get these extra messages:
    E:Can’t mount /cache/recovery/log
    E:Can’t open /cache/recovery/log
    E:Unknown volume for path [cache/recovery/command]

    I went into download mode but Odin does not detect the phone. HELP NEEDED!!!

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

      please download the file again!

    • Janno

      Your phone is bricked. Like what happend to me.

      What i did is i used HEIMDALL for flashing XXJV– and my phone is back to normal :)

      after heimdall, your phone will be detected by Odin again. :)

      hope it helps! just google the procedure of Heimdall

    • Mahmud Koya

      Hi Peewo,
      I had almost the same experience. Before I updated my SGS GT-I9000 with the Cyanogen 7.1, it was with XXJVR2.3.5, rooted and HTC sense ROM. When I tried to go back from Cyanogen to HTC, phone got frozen at the Samsung Galaxy S screen, no more ahead or power off as well. Then I pulled out the battery and went to the recovery mode by the volume up + home button+ power button method. There I applied wipe cache and factory rest options and rebooted. But still the phone came only upto the Samsung Galaxy S screen. Again battery pulled out and went to download mode by the volume down+home button+power button method and reflashed with the XXJVR2.3.5 update, then rooted with the XXJVR2.3.5 package using odin3, then again HTC sense ROM, all by the files downloaded from this tutorial. Now my phone has no problem.
      Thanks
      Mahmud K.

      • Peewo

        Well Mahmud you are lucky. As my computer could not detect the phone in the download mode, I could not flash any firmware. Anyway I had to take it to a local repair center and she solved my problem within 30 minutes. Now my phone is ALIVE! and me poorer by RM60.

    • Mahmud Koya

      Hi Peewo,
      CORRECTION: wherever I mentioned in my comment XXJVR2.3.5, please take it as XXJVS 2.3.5. The mistake is regretted.

    Hi everyone,

    This is the best option u can get;

    1. Update and Root XXJVS and also Update Sppedmod as This Article.
    2. And Download this latest updated ROM “http://download.cyanogenmod.com/get/cm_galaxysmtd_full-147.zip” and install from sdcard via ClockworkMod recovery.

    Thats Very Good and stable like my Gsi9000 :)

    • euchye

      Hi Sam, do you follow the nightlies? I’ve been following the nightlies but didn’t update for the last couple of releases. I’m on cm_galaxysmtd_full-169.zip and everything is great!

      • sam

        Hey euchye,

  • Solarit

    Great Mod.First had issues with market from stock rom.Then loaded Google apps on my SGS

  • Mahmud Koya

    Hi Neal,
    I managed to update my SGS with this Cyanogen MOD ROM in another way. First I downloaded to my PC all the required files from this tutorial, unzipped the Speed Mod Kernel zip and copied the “speedmod-kernel-k15i-t13″ tar file to the phone.
    Then the zip files ‘Cyanogen MOD 7.1 ROM’ and ‘Google Apps’ were also copied to the phone as they are. Then I downloaded from the Market an application named ‘SGS Kernel Flasher’ directly to the phoned and flashed the “speedmod-kernel-k15i-t13″ directly from the phone without going to recovery mode or using odin3 from the PC. Then I rebooted the phone to recovery mode and there I selected the “install zip from SD Card” and then “Choose zip from SD Card” and applied first the ‘Cyanogen’ zip later the ‘Google Apps’ zip. The process was cool and successful.

    My SGS gt-i9000 was with XXJVS 2.3.5 and rooted with the same package and on HTC sense ROM before I updating with the Cyanogen MOD 7.1 but without much delay I went back to the HTC sense ROM because compared to its look and performance this Cyanogen is not at all appealing to me.

    Thank you Neal, waiting for more novelties from you.

    Hi Neal, You said in the end part of the tutorial: “All you need to do is to first select he zip file which is named as “” and then the Google Apps Zip file.”

    ….zip file which is named as “” and then the Google Apps Zip file…..By named as ” ” do you mean ‘update-cm-7.1.0-GalaxyS-siged.zip’, don’t you?

    Hi Neal,

    My current version of firmware is 2.3.5 XXJVT…
    What i know there is still no procedure to ROOT the 2.3.5 XXJVT, if i’m knot wrong…
    So, just want to ask you.. can i update my phone with Cyanogen MOD 7.1 Custom ROM Firmware?

  • John

    Is this for XXJVS stock firmware only? i have XXJVR installed (rooted) and installed the hardcore speedmod kernel.

    once i get to recovery mode, every time i pick an option it goes black screen.

    help please?

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

      no, it has to be XXJVS! Because we have tested on XXJVS! we haven’t tested on XXJVR!

    Hi Neal,
    Where is the download link for “Speedmod-kernel-k15i-t13” ?
    I downloaded the same from another site and updated through the odin3, but failed in updating with the ‘Cyanogen MOD 7.1 Custom ROM Firmware’.

    Thanks,

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

    May be there is any problem with ROM zip file, it stucks ‘Installing Update…’ after selecting the file in install zip from sdcard section !!!!! :(

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

      wat version of firmware you have installed?

    “…So, once you finish updating the firmware to XXJVS and rooting the same you will have to download the Speed MOD Kernel Zip file in your computer and just unzip the same to get the tar file named as “speedmod-kernel-k15i-t13”…”

    Hi, I installed Microsoft Visual C++, downloaded Hardcore’s speedMod Kernel with ClockworkMod Recovery, Hemdall Suit 1.1.1 for window only according to your suggestion written in the instruction. Followed every steps of pre root instruction. While I started Heimdall Frountend, the device automatically rebooted but it shows only ‘GALAXY S GT I9000 SAMSUNG’. It does not open. I opened it in recovery mode, it has been rooted. I tried to rebooted so many times, it is not working, only showing ‘GALAXY S GT I9000 SAMSUNG’. I wanted to back to the JVS and JVT, it goes to download mode, but does not recognize the odin 1.3. Now I am totally helpless. Please instruct me what is best solution. I installed Zading.exe again, Selected extrcted zImage in Kernel section and started Heimadall Fronted again. It goes perfectly and shows the blue transfer bar too. It shows ‘Flash Completed 100 percent successfully. Tried so many time to reboot, it goes only idle mode showing GALAXY S GT I9000 SAMSUNG. But IT GOES RECOVERY AND downloading mode. HELP! HELP!!

      Thanks for your interest but we would provide you with an article within a day or two or HTC phones for CyanogenMod 7.1.
      Check back soon.

      • Rish

        I think he meant he has a galaxy s with an HTC ROM installed on it..
        So to answer your question, I’m not an expert, but i think that this rom will overrun your current rom.. meaning, that the old htc rom will be deleted, unless you backup with ROM manager which u can download from the market for free, and the new cyanogen rom will be installed.

        not so sure. but hopefully this is right, confirm with yogesh though .

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

          hey rish, we have modified the article, kindly refer the same!

  • Preeth

    Neal,

    If we have already rooted 2.3.5 usging the steps you have provided ealier, can we not just download CynogenMod file and install it from SD card ? do we still have to go through all the steps from installing the Clockwork and then install Cynogen.

    or Can we not just install Cynogen without Clockwork ?

    • Yogesh Patel

      ClockworkMod is compulsorily required for CyanogenMod, without that you can update with that custom ROM.

  • Ryan

    Hi Neal, would you happen to know the *call quality* in India, with this version of Cynogenmod ?

    A couple of months ago I’d tried ver 7.0, but callers could barely hear me and there were tons of dropped calls as well. I tried switching multiple modems but none worked – and so I moved back to stock XXJVR (2.3.4)

  • francis

    Neal,
    Im currently on HTC Sense ROM, if I update with this ROM will the HTC sense be removed? and can I install it back? I will be waiting for you reply.

    Thanks

    • Yogesh Patel

      No No francis, Dont apply this update to any other phone. Apply it for only Galaxy S i9000 phone but not any other similar models too.

  • Rish

    Hey Neal,

    I had a problem while doing this update, I had done everything proper in the ROM manager, but when it gets to the installation of the mod in the ROM manager, it takes me to the clockwork mod n then there it says installation aborted. What am I to do? should i continue with the update? Help!

    • Rish

      also the uploaded file to download is in .rar format, i thnk the galaxy takes .zip files. so another reason it didnt work on my phone.. maybe?

      • Yogesh Patel

        yeah, had some issues with rar file. Reuploaded it again, try it out. Thanks for your patience.

        • Rish

          The installation process is still not going through.. i downloaded the newly uploaded file, set it in my sd card folder, put my phone on recovery mode, wiped data and cache, then tried to install zip from sd card n the downloaded file was there so then i clicked it to perform the task, but in a few seconds it says installation aborted.. what to do??

          Try the procedure once again, as I have updated the update-cm-7.1.0-GalaxyS.rar file. Sorry for the trouble caused to you.
