Galaxy S ICS New logoAbout a much talked about firmware these days, none other than Ice Cream Sandwich, the beta versions seem to be an everyday affair. Not to forget since most of them are still in the making and are buggy but just in case if you wish to update with an all new build of ROM of ICS which ropes in the latest Android 4.0.3 version of firmware for Samsung Galaxy S. Please note that this is not the Official version released by Samsung Electronics and is the version which is released by the third party developers.

    HI Neela,

    I updated my SGS GT-I9000 with RC1 one week back and it seems that it is working good but i noticed that when someone calls me then after picking the phone i can hear the caller voice perfectly but on the otherside the caller has problem to listen my voice. earlier i thought it may be network issue. but later i intensionally check it while calling from my other mobile/landline then it confirms that there is some issue in RC1 of ICS.But when the same caller again calls me immediately then there is no such problem on either side.

    Now intended to go for RC2.1 but while the reading the comments it feels that it is not the good time to go ahead for RC2.1.

    So I request you to please advise/suggest what should be done or any fix is there for this problem.

    Thanks

    first the video recording doesnt reach the 30 fps its at about 23fps which you feel that’s it little bit laggy
    second when i tried quadrant to see its rating (standard quadrant ) there were great performance for the fps in every test but when it came to the rendering of the moon revolving around the planet the graphics were glitchy and very low fps at about 15fps and may be thats what is causing the video recording to be bad on 720p

    If upgrade through ODIN is not possible? I have tried several times following the procedure dot by dot but still can’t. The phone tends to restart every second with red mark on android logo. no luck so far.
    same happens with MIUI Custom ROM Firmware upgrade through this procedure. GB 2.3.6 was successfully upgraded and rooted with ODIN.

        well the article says to unzip.

        Download the ICS Android 4.0.3 Complete Package in your computer and then you need to unzip the same. Once the folder is extracted, you will get to see a firmware Zip file which you need to copy the same in your phone. After this you need to disconnect the phone just in case if its still connected.
