How To Update Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 with Extra Ordinary ROM v 3.3

Extra Ordinary 3.3 LogoIf you have still thinking that the last version of Extra Ordinary 3.2 was visually appealing then you got to think it again on this thought as with the arrival of Version Extra Ordinary 3.3 ROM you can now enjoy much more Premium experience than ever. There are quite a few enhancements which have been made, so let’s check out the same in the enhancements section wherein you will find the same in the enhancements section in the next page. Though it’s not necessary to update this version only from 3.2 version, you can directly proceed to update with this 3.3 version but you should ensure that you have XXJVQ installed first as a base and then you should ensure that you have rooted your phone which we will see on how you can do the same. This ROM is basically the Gingerbread based 2.3.4 ROM.

It has been repeatedly found that some of the users are skipping the steps, for all those we would like to request to follow the instructions as mentioned as mentioned in the article.

Please note that this update is only meant for the phone with the model number Samsung Galaxy S GTI9000 and not for any other similar looking models or similar sounding models like Samsung Galaxy S I9000M or Captivate, Mesmerize or even other phones like Vibrant etc. If you still proceed to update the device then you may even end up bricking up your phone or some keys won’t be responding as per the functions which these keys are meant to do.

Note: You will have to reconfigure the APN settings after updating the firmware to access the data services and the services as all the Internet APN settings will be reset. You will have to contact your Service provider to get more info on the APN Settings. Not to forget also configure the MMS Settings. Also, we hold no responsibility if anything goes wrong which is an unlikely event if anything goes wrong. Most of the users forget this step and end up experiencing difficulties in accessing the internet after updating the phone.

Also, we saw recently on how you can update with another custom ROM which is none other than AMESTRIS 2.3.4 ROM.

    Two questions please:
    Should one now go to ER 3.4 rather than ER 3.2/3.3 ?
    Is there a set of instructions to root again after going to ER 3.2/3.3/3.4 ?

    • NeaL Pradeep

      September 2, 2011 at 5:33 pm

      this version of firmware is rooted by default!

    Hi Neal

    I updated to EO 3.3 and I am very happy with it, works very well.

    Just one thing – most of the lockscreens does not work – the phone reboots when I try to unlock with some of the lockscreens. Any idea why?

    • NeaL Pradeep

      August 23, 2011 at 12:07 am

      which lock screen is not working? it should work!

      • PyroPhreak

        August 23, 2011 at 11:48 am

        MIUI unlock – if you unlock to go to messages the phone hanges and reboots
        4 Tab unlock – same problem as MIUI

        The rest seem to be working fine. I will update to EO 3.4 soon and check if it is working then.

    The internet seems to be slower on 3.3 ROM, I went back to 3.2 ROM, for me, it felt like it was much more smooth and the internet is much faster when it loads. I am still having the LOCKSCREEN 4way TAB, when I slide it to unlock MESSANGER TAB to go to the message area. it will still freeze. I have even reinstall JVQ and installed 3.3, I still get the same problem.

    been using this Rom for last three days, better than others so far…. great improvement compared to xtra ordinary 3.2 and SGS S2 Rom,…
    no force closes, battery life is good, beautiful UI and animations, comes with voodoo pack which i feel it makes the device much responsive.
    only problem faced so far is the marketplace widget was not working but managed to fix it after a few googling…..

    thanks you neal for your kind answers.

      Hi Callisto. I had the same problem. I just cleared market data from ‘manage apps’ under settings and it’s working now.

    whether there needs to be installed voodoo lagfix
    and if so what should be the first root or lagfix?

    • NeaL Pradeep

      August 16, 2011 at 10:13 am

    Hi Neal,

    You guys had said earlier that this 3.3 v has been found to be unstable. Has that been fixed?

  43. vicious

    August 15, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    I am pretty sure I posted a comment 4 to 5 hours ago, but I don’t see that comment anymore.

    Anyways, I found another glitch which I found on 3.2 rOM and even upgrading to 3.3 Rom, when you use the MIC (swyping mic), it will not open up so that it can type what I am saying, it is a good feature to have when you are driving. Anyway to fix this?

    • NeaL Pradeep

      August 15, 2011 at 10:34 pm

      sure we have taken a feedback of the same and have passed this f/b to the developer, it will be fixed in the next version!

      this option is in the CWM MOde, if you cant see the CWM icon then boot in the recovery mode to install the zip!

      hi festus, i don’t see it in the application either, but by long press the power button, u will see recovery, press that, wait awhile , it will boot up into cwm recovery , its all in there πŸ˜€

    upgraded 3.2 rom to 3.3 Rom. so far, I have notice some problems.

    1. Launcher – LG HOME – then hit menu – home settings – home selector – gives me and error (the application LG home, process android.process.lghome) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. It also will not allow me to put more icons in the bottom of the screen. Only 2 is preloaded which is the Internet icon the message icon.

    Power cycled the phone – did not help
    wife the cache from recovery – did not help

    2. Some applications that was supposed to be preloaded was not there such as Titanium Backup, also the CWM icon is missing, I noticed the same thing happening when I had the 3.2 rom. I had to go to recovery mode by using the 3 buttons or holding the power button to get the 3.3 rom loaded.

    3. Lock Screen – using the 4way Tab lock- If i try to unlock it using the Messaging slider, it will freeze and will not load to the messaging section. same issue with 3.2 Rom when that was loaded.

    These are the problems I have found so far. not complaining, just giving you feedback. AS ALWAYS. YOU ARE THE BEST , I AM LOVING THIS ROMS YOU GUYS ARE ADDING, IT’S LIKE A LAUNCHER, EASY TO PUT/LOAD. THANKS AGAIN.

      I face the same problem, then i have to go tru installing XXJVQ and then ROOT and update to 3.3 and problem was solve.

      Ive got the Titanium but CMW icon was definitely not there, anyways we can go tru Recovery tru power button.

      But this is the best ROM by far as of now that i have tested…

    How do you copy the zip files from the computer onto your phone, what application is need for doing so. Connecting the usb cable doesn’t seem to be getting the job done for me. Can anyone help with this problem, thanks.

    • NeaL Pradeep

      August 15, 2011 at 3:35 pm

      you can make use of Windows Explorer to copy the same!

      • Richard

        August 15, 2011 at 3:49 pm

        do I need to extract files for this, is it Windows explorer from the computer or phone?

        • NeaL Pradeep

          August 15, 2011 at 10:39 pm

          no, you dont have to extract file, just place this in your phone!

    Hi Neal,

    Currently on version 3.3 , can i just downgrade it directly to 3.2 by going into recovery and apply ? (as 3.2 zip file is still in my SD)

  51. Kevin

    August 15, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    Hi Neal,

    A couple of issues:

    1) Memo’s gone

    2) Cannot move many apps to SD card – says ‘not enough memory’ (though there’s more than enough memory) or simply ‘failed to move application’.

    • NeaL Pradeep

      August 16, 2011 at 12:13 am

      are you facing same issues in other apps as well! if problem persists then apply the update again!

      • Kevin

        August 17, 2011 at 8:20 am

        Used Titanium Backup to move the apps. Thanks Neal.

        • NeaL Pradeep

          August 16, 2011 at 12:11 am
