How to Update Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 with ICS 4.0.3 RC1 Firmware

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. Also, in the process of applying this update, you need to root the phone which will void the warranty. For your simplicity we have broken this article in two different pages wherein in this page we will see the information about pre Requisites followed by the procedure in the next page on how to apply this update.

  • DK1947IN

    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

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

      AS OF NOW WE CAN ONLY SAY THAT, WAIT FOR FEW MORE DAYS FOR ANOTHER RELEASE, MAY BE IT WILL BE A STABLE RELEASE!

    i flashed it it works great mostly every thing is working fine. huge battery improvement
    but there is some minor bugs i want to share
    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

    when i found any other thing i will post it

    thanks NEAL

    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.

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

      no, as of now you cant update this with ODIN!

  • fahimmuchi

    Sorry,ignore the first problem,please tell me that there is a solution for the 2nd problem i mentioned above.I am sure no body like the low FPS in Video Recorder so you guys really need to focus on this one.

  • fahimmuchi

    this firmware has improvements,but still got some major bugs which are:
    1.Unable to download apps from the android market plus there is no given file manager with this firmware
    2.Video recorder can’t record videos in 30 fps

    Any solutions?

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

      yes it will be fixed in the coming versions!

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

      please update MIUI first and then apply this!

  • Pavan Reddy

    Hi Neal , already we are updating this on the rooted phones , why do we need to root the phone again , please let me know , thanks

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

      so that you can customize the phone with custom roms, themes and other apps which needs root access! rooting allows third party files to access the system level files for further customization!

    it says signature verification failed. please help me

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

      you should not unzip the files, please follow the article!

      • euchye

        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.
