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

          it doesnt require the kernel fix!

      • mohammad

        in thier website(from the link provided in this article) they mentioned to install a kernel for the sensors to function well and then there is the wifi fix kernel so should install them both or the wifi fix kernel?

    Thanks

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

      there is no exact date but will be coming very soon!

  • DK1947IN

    Use “App backup & restore” software from android market.

  • Najpod

    My phone wont connect to its 3g network (APN settings are correct). I installed the RC2.11 pack and WIFI is working great so i decided not to instal the kernal.

    Is anyone else having this problem???

    Ow and the standard music player won’t play any of my songs :(

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

      it should work, check with the apn settings! have you installed the kernel?

  • naeem ejaz

    Neal… I need one help from you. Whenever I install a new firmware I lose all my saved games and saved apps data. I know how to take backup of .apk files. But I dont know how to link the installed apk with the backed up data. Is there any way so that I dont lose my saved games. Please help. Thanks in advance. Typing this text third time. as it is not posting when I click submit..

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

    Hi Neal,

    I need one help from you. Whenever I install a new firmware I lose all my saved games and saved apps data. I know how to take backup of .apk files. But I dont know how to link the installed apk with the backed up data. Is there any way so that I dont lose my saved games.

    Please help. Thanks in advance.

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

      as of now there is no way that you can backup the game data!

  • Naeem Ejaz

    Hi Neal,

    I use to update your firmware often but I am pissed with only one thing. All my saved games or saved data in the software gets deleted. I know how to take the .apk files but I dont know how to link the installed app with its data which is taken as backup or is there anyway so that I dont lose my saved app data.

    Please help. Thanks in advance.

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

      you can backup the data with titanium backup

  • Najpod

    Is anyone else having difficulties with connecting to their 3G network?
    I think I have the APN settings right, just as I did with the other ROMs.
    I haven’t flashed the Kernal because my wifi is working great.

  • sensony DP

    From the comments i see quite a number of people are facing problems with USB connectivity. If you enable usb via clockworkmod,it works and you can transfer/copy files.

    Hi ALL,

    I am running ICS RC1 on my SGS GT-I9000, it working good but mission native FM application. But got the news that its RC2 was release and then got info that RC2.1 was also release. Can somebody please tell me whats the difference or how stable it is to switch from RC1 to RC2 or RC2.1.

    Secondly is it neccessary to go back to MIUI ROM from ICS RC1 and then to RC2 or we can directly install RC2 from RC1.

    Thanks

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

      if you are on rc1 then there is no need to update with miui, directly you can apply rc2

  • mike

    Love the look of this build and the sounds on this firmware .but wondering what the point of it is if there is still no fm radio or full camera functions or USB connection. you said fm radio was now working. Internet radio is not fm radio!!!!

  • rishabhh

    does it support avi or other formats…??? i have cm7 can i update!!!!!!

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

      we dont have exact list of supported formats!

  • John

    Still cant buy paid apps from the market. Had the same issue with RC1.

  • rishabh

    does this support other videos …such as avi,mkv thanxxx

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

      it does support many formats!

  • rishabh

    can i play videos other than mp4 which is default???

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

      yes mp4 is supported!

  • Michael

    Video Call not work in this version and FM Radio is not exist :(

  • seid

    PC with USB is not working. also Camera zoom and radio…………………

  • Keith

    SO basically things that are not working is USB, Camera zoom and radio?

    • Alecsys

      And you can not sync with facebook account, you can not charge your phone while it is turned off (the phone automatically turns on), you can not organize your photos and video in gallery, you can not turn on/off your data so quickly as it is on gingerbread (pushing the power button and selecting it).

      But the ICS update it worth all this things because is very very friendly and nice to be used.

    • Alecsys

      And you can add the proximity sensor – doesn’t work :(…

  • Anks

    Hey i have bricked my phone… is there any way out to regain the OS back???

  • mOhsin

    hi …
    i have install kernel … but still getting usb err ….
    im switching bak to RC1 :/ sad update

    • Alecsys

      I had the same problem after i did all the things mentioned here…but i found the solution. You must install an RC1 kernel from here (http://ics.samsung-updates.com/kernels/).

      I used this one (nemed + Voodoo Color and Sound) and it’s works pretty good (connect to PC trough USB, no com.android.media error). Here is the direct download > http://ics.samsung-updates.com/kernels/FuguModICSRC1_GT-I9000_voodoo.zip

      • Yogbal

        Hi buddy,

        Are u sure, you dont get any other error or any bugs after updating this kernal ???

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

          there will be some errors as its still as Release candidate!

  • Peet

    Yes, it is known that Native FM still doesn’t work. I was looking for that clarification.

    Never mind ! ICS even still in Beta versions for SGS is awesome !
    Great thanks to all codevelopers !!!

    P.S.: Btw, Internet Radio really works ! For example – radiotuna.com

  • Ghamaraj Luitel

      • Peet

        Do you mean “Spirit FM Radio” from ANDROID MARKET ?

        And if YES, then which version of “Spirit FM”, because tried it and with negative result.

        Tnanks in advance !

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

          are you talking of an internet radio?

  • karim

    Installed the rom pretty well,no difficulty when it comes to androidadvices.com. found some issues,

    -there is no zoom in the camera
    -another issue i’ve found is when using mixzing music app,you can not play your music if mixzing’s equalizer is on. It stops the music if playing and closes the app once you activate the equalizer.
    -what happened to SAMSUNG APPS application? Is it going to feature in the coming updates?

    otherwise everything else works fine.

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

      yes there are still some issues as its not a stable version!

    Hi, is this rom operators branded, or will it work correctly on EU Phone (XX___)?
    If so, how can I change the baseband to obtain the signal?
    Is the network type settings bug now resolved?

    So, can it be flashed directly from XXJVS?

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

      YES IT CAN BE FLASHED BUT YOU NEED TO UPDATE FROM MIUI, PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!

    Dear Androidadvices.com,

    Before I do anything I have a few questions:

    On the ISC website it says one still needs to instal \Super user for ISC’ before installing the Kernel, is this necessary or is my XXJVR (rooted) + MIUI enough to apply the fix?

    Also, the ROM found on the ISC website is a 2.11, is the Kernel already incorporated in this one?

    Thanks!

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

      no, kernel needs to be flashed separately

  • Alecsys

    Hi Pradeep,

    When I tried to download I could see link for RC2.11 and RC2. Could you please confirm which one we need to download.

    Kernel ICS-RC2.1-i9000-Glitch.zip
    Main ROM ICS_4.0.3_r1-RC2.11-i9000.zip

    Please also confirm whether we need to run both the above mentioned files in the recovery mode? You have mentioned to choose only one file ICS RC 2.1 file to install..

    Appreciate if you could on this.. thanks

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

      you need to first install the main rom and then you need to install the kernel. so download both the files!
      Kernel ICS-RC2.1-i9000-Glitch.zip
      Main ROM ICS_4.0.3_r1-RC2.11-i9000.zip
