How to update Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 to Gingerbread XXJVQ 2.3.4 Firmware

Galaxy S New LogoLast time when we saw on how you can update your Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 with the latest XXJVP 2.3.4 Gingerbread release, most of the users were more than happy to update with the same but later some of the users faced many issues after installing some of the applications as many users faced force close errors.  So, for all the users who are facing this issues, we will see on how you can update with an all new Gingerbread 2.3 release in the due course of this article.

The version which is leaked recently is the leak version and not the official KIES 2 release. But updating with this version of Gingerbread 2.3.4 that is XXJVQ 2.3.4, the warranty will not be voided. Though there is no time line given by Samsung on the arrival of the official version of Gingerbread 2.3.4 release, you can expect the same in the coming months and not if not any time soon then we are there any time to give you all the latest updates for your phone even before Samsung comes forward with the Gingerbread 2.3.4 or even the future releases of Android versions.

  3. Hi
    two questions for JVQ:
    1. is there video/voce chat support for gtalk?
    2. is “daily Briefing” included?

  4. Yes i did, I even did the factory reset option.
    Is any one else having the crashes as mine?

  5. Hi Neal,
    I used your guide to update to XXJVP and now XXJVQ. The guide are really detailed and easy to follow. Thanks.

    i had a black screen of death problem, The screen went black after boot.bin started. So i flashed it to the old firmware i.e. XXJVP and then again to the new one and the second time it went great.

    I having a bit of a problem with running applications on the roms. Asphalt 6 and modern combat crash at the start of the game. Is it a problem with the ROM or is it some thing else.

  6. Hi Neal,

    I was trying to update my phone with this firmware but it suddenly failed at somepoint. What should i do now? please suggest something asap.

  7. Hello
    1. I installed drivers for I9000…
    2. then went on 2.3.3 – but it was a battery drain
    4. then with procedure on your site went to root 2.3.3
    5. I must upload 2.3.4 JVQ (I wan’t to go for Extra Ordinary Rom 3.2)

    But…. Every time Odin recognized phone when I plugged it in – now, when I rooted it (v 2.3.3 – which is mandatory to go for 2.3.4 JVQ) – well now Odin does nor say “added”, and windows pop up msg: “…. usb device not recognized….” (?). Why is that? It worked perfectly before root on GB 2.3.3. Sholud I install drivers again?

  15. hello .i downgraded my galaxy from 2.2 to 2.1 . after five mounth i wanted to upgrade to 2.2.1(I9000JPJPM), i restarted (*2767*3855# = E2P Full Reset) but i saw my phone didnt recieve any antenna signal(i couldnt call).then i upgraded to 2.2.1 and then to 2.3.4(I9000XXJVQ) . i recieve signal but i recieve it very week.i dont know why?(sometimes someone cant call me in my office but he can call my friend in exactly the same place.) after i install android 2.3.4 i didnt go to recovery mode and i only reset with *2767*3855#.

  16. Hi Neal can I please know that what is the difference between rooting and flashing your device? and should I root my Galaxy S or flash it? which one is a better practice?
    Thanks in advance

  17. Hi Neal good job with the instructions. Looking forward to installing the firmware but I want to know that do I need to enable lagfix on this version or is it smooth enough on its own? And what benchmark scores do you get with this firmware?

    • the benchmarking will be different for different devices and also it depends on diff. benchmarkign tools you use, so it will be difficulat to tell you the exact numbers!

  18. hey Neal, got around to doing the FW upgrade and ALL i can say is it rocks. Thanks for your comprehensive explanation on the process. If I could add to it, be patient. Some procedures are happening when you think they arent !
    Nice one Neal
