How To Update Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 to XXJVS Gingerbread 2.3.5 Firmware

Galaxy S LogoTime has now come to again take out all your Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 phones as an all much awaited Gingerbread 2.3.5 now arrives. So, in the due course of this article we will see on how you can easily apply this latest update from the Gingerbread 2.3.5. This update comes as a great respite for all those who were really waiting for a stable and a 2.3.5 series update after the news came in about the arrival of 2.3.6. Soon, in the coming days, the Galaxy S users will witness the Gingerbread 2.3.6 update too. Though there is no ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) on the same but we can only hope that the same will be launched as soon as possible. Even the mightiest phone, the Samsung Galaxy S2 GT I9100 phone too is awaiting an update of the 2.3.5 Gingerbread series. But soon Galaxy S2 too will witness the Gingerbread 2.3.5 release.

Please note that this Gingerbread 2.3.5 release is not the Official version which is released by the Samsung but it’s the beta version. Though there may be some bugs which will be there in this version of firmware but it will soon be fixed as soon as you comment about the same in the comments section below. Please note that you need to strictly need to follow instructions before you proceed to apply this update on your phone. This all new update of Gingerbread 2.3.5 is dubbed as the version XXJVS.

Enhancements:

  • Daily Briefing Weather Widget now is Added,
  • Improved overall Speed in Quadrant Ranks,
  • Improved Battery Life,
  • No Force Close Errors in either Dialer or Phone.apk,
  • Better Wi Fi Strength,

Screenshots of XXJVS 2.3.5:

Special Instructions for users on Custom ROM Firmwares:

  • If you are on any of the custom ROM firmwares like Simple Honey, Juicy Ginger, Extra Ordinary, Amestris or any other custom ROM, then you will have to first backup all the data like you did last time and then need to get into the recovery mode.
  • Once you get into the recovery mode, you will have to select options Wipe data/factory reset and also you need to select Wipe Cache partition after which you need to reboot your device by selecting reboot system now. As soon as you do so, all the cache files and the custom ROM specific files are erased completely after which it will now become safe to proceed with the instructions to apply this Gingerbread 2.3.5 ROM.
  • Just in case if you are using the Voodoo products or apps in your phone then its utmost important to disable the same before proceeding to apply any sorts of update as Voodoo products converts the file system from the RFS to EXT4, so disabling this will allow the new firmware tool to convert the file system accordingly by default to the RFS which is the file system in the Gingerbread XXJVS 2.3.5.

Please note that in this process, you will lose all the data which is there in your phone, so ensure that you have created the backup before proceeding with the update.

Highlight: The best part of this firmware is that anyone from any part of the World can proceed with the updation of the Galaxy S GT I9000 device. The only thing you need to do is to just follow the instructions strictly which are mentioned in the due course of this article.

Rooting Information:
Please note that applying this update on your Android won’t mean that you have rooted the phone. So, applying this update in short will neither root your device nor will be losing the warranty. Thanks to Samsung Electronics which allows customization of Android devices which in turn allows one to manually apply any update from any part of the World as it doesn’t come with the Boot loader policies like Motorola, Sony Ericsson or even HTC follows.

Additionally, if you have rooted the phone before or is rooted now, then after applying with this update the rooting access will be revoked and  you will have to root your device once again to get the root access.

Disclaimer:
Please note that we should not be held liable or responsible in any manner if anything wrong happens to your device which is the most unlikely if you follow the instructions as prescribed in the due course of this article.

    Hi,

    I just upgraded to Gingerbreak 2.3.5 via Kies – all very straightfoward. I now have….
    Android version – 2.3.5
    Baseband version – I9100XXKI4
    Build Number – Gingerbread.XWKI8

    All seems to be ok and phone is working (so far).

    Only issue I have now is that on very top-right of screen (beside clock, battery power symbol, network reception) I have a symbol that looks like the old ‘silence’ symbol. (i.e. outline of phone with squiggly lines either side of it.) I’m nearly sure is the ‘vibrate’ symbol – but it was never there before and even if I turn off vibrate – it still doesn’t go away?? Why has this suddenly appeared after the update and how can I get rid of it?

    Thanks.

  • Sabba

    Hi Experts,

    Need advice.

    I have brought a new SG2 contract phone 3 weeks back and updated the firmware as below from Kies.

    Version: 2.4.5
    PDA: XWKI4
    PHONE: XXKI1
    CSC: XEUKH2

    Just planning to upgrade my firmware to 2.3.4 to 2.3.5 because of batter performance. Before i processed, i have questions on my mind.

    1. Can i upgrade to 2.3.5 with my current version?
    2. If i upgrade firmware without rooting my warrenty still valid?
    3. If i’m not rooting my phone. what kind of issues i will face in future upgrades or with market place?
    4. If i upgrade my firmware to 2.3.5 and rooted. Can i pull back my pervious version (2.3.4)?

    Appreciate on your advice.

    Cheers.
    Sabba.

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

      you can apply the update
      warranty may get void, contact operator for T&C
      Yes, once you root unless and unless you revoke the root access the firmware won’t be recognized by KIES
      yes you can roll back to any version of your choice, even back to official fw!

  • http://www.lsjelectronics.com.au lee jeffery

    HI Neal, upgraded my SGS to 2.3.5 and its been good but I have a couple of niggling problems neither of which where there on my previous version. Firstly occasionally it has a force close error, and doesnt seem particular to any one app. It did it when exiting messaging today, the other day exiting email. It also had connection errors the other day in emails as well. When it forces the close of an app it appears to cause a problem with the Bluetooth, as even though it appears nothing has changed, i will make a call and find the phone operating audio through the phone and not through my bluetooth headset as it was doing minutes before. It has done this in several locations where I have not previously had problems. The icon still says the headset is connected but it is clearly not. Attempts to pair the headset again have been unsuccesful and I have to turn off the headset and the bluetooth on the phone and reinitialise everything again.
    The phone has also developed a nasty tendency to drop its 3G signal and the signal bars are replaced by an O with a line through it. Again these are problems I have not experienced in the nine months ive had the phone so i can only assume it is the new firmware.
    Any ideas??

  • K M Subramaniam

    Hi
    i upgraded my GT i9000 from eclair to froyo in kies application. Now i upgraded to gingerbread 2.3.3 using the files from android advices (thanks to that) later i upgraded to 2.3.5 (XXJVS). Also i rooted the phone & used the patch for the wifi fix from your website. It was working fine for 3 days or so. now i am encountering crashing of applications & also the call log opening and contacts opening.
    Also while assigning speed dialling, it is not dialling the phone no. instead it is dialling the key pad no. (2-9) and says un known no.
    first we have to dial the no. example no assigned to numeric pad 2 the assigned phone no. is displayed then we have to touch the displayed no & make the call.
    Can u plz help me out for these complaints?

The coverage was excellent here but my phone cant get it. Why is that?

    Hello Neal, ur doing a great job. I updated my galaxy s to 2.3.4 XXJVR and now 2.3.5 XXJVS all from this website. My problem is after I upgraded to XXJVS, MY PHONE WORKED PERFECTLY WELL, BUT IT SEEMED TO SLOW DOWN AFTER I SYNCED MY FACEBOOK CONTACT TO MY CONTACS. I THEN SWITCHED OFF MY GALAXY S AND SINCE THEN IT JUST GETS TO THE GALAXY S SCREEN THAT TURNS PURPLE AND STAYS THERE. SHOULD I FLASH AGAIN?

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

      yes try flashing the update once again, are you clearing the cache from the recovery mode?

    Upgraded my i9000t with 2.3.4 XXJVR and then proceeded to install EO 3.5. Was much better than when I was on 3.0, and data connectivity was much better. (practically absent in 3.0). I want to upgrade to XXJVS but the issues mentioned above have me a bit skeptical; Anyone with an i9000t tried this rom as yet? If so kindly let me know of any issues so i can decide if to proceed with an update.

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

      There are no issues reported as of now.

        I tried on KIES but it does not give me a firmware update. I don’t know what to do now. I tried to update it without SIM card before did not go through the process still. There is no codes maybe that I can use?

  • Wez

    Hi again Neal, I am still stuck with my phone. I can get the phone back into download mode, but cannot get it to go into recovery mode, have tried loads of stuff even took the battery out for around 45 minutes. If I try to boot normally I get the orange triangle with the ! in it and nothing happens. I have tried with Oden3 loads of time and that is not doing anything either. I have had a look in my device manager and found that the phone is called SAMSUNG Mobile USB CDC Composite Device in the USB controllers. What I would like to be able to do is just get out of download mode and hopefully back into my installed firmware, as nothing has been installed the original firmware has got to be there somewhere in the phone.

    Best wishes Wez

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

      i believe you haven’t flashed GALAXY S GT I9000 Phone? what is your device’s model number?

      • Wez

        Hi Neal many thanks for your very fast reply. My phone is a galaxy s 2 which was locked to the 3 network in Ireland. I know that I have not flashed the phone as Odin never did put the green upload bar on the Odin installer like it does in any video I have seen of it. I am not sure what the original FW was now or if the phone was in USB debug mode either. If I try to boot normally I get the orange triangle with an exclamation mark in the middle of it between an icon representing the phone and one for the laptop. I cannot put the phone in recovery mode, I can get it back to download mode though, but from what I have learned from watching some videos on you tube it might not really be in download mode but just saying that it is and it needs to be USB jigged to get it right again, I have just bought a ISB Jig from ebay and now must wait for it’s arrival, which will take up to 10 days, it is coming from HK.

        Many thanks again Neal and keep up the good work my friend, very best wishes Wez

        • Wez

          Hi I have resolved the problem with my SGS2, in the end I used Odin3 and only uploaded the Modem.tar file to the phone, I did not use any of the other tar files or the pit file and my phone went back to normal again. I am so happy that I have it back to normal again and it still has the 3 Ireland software on it also.

          Thank you for your help and for all the good work you do on here, I think that I will await the update from Sammy as it can’t be that long away now till they release it to us.

          Very best wishes Wez

    Neal Did you load a new version of 2.3.5 on here, I did download it last night, but all the files are the same (The Dates 0f files) as the one that I have downloaded over the weekend.

  • Simon

    First time I’ve done this update firmware thing, so thank you, worked a treat, very good instructions. But, 2 questions if i may?
    First should i have taken the sim card out before updating?
    Second, i assumed google talk now had the video chat option with 2.3.5, but checking the phone now it looks the same as before, and i have checked the firmware update, still shows 2.3.5 so update worked. Is that correct? no video with google talk on this update? If so, do you know when it will be available?

    Thanks for your help

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

      1. no, its not necessary to take sim out,
      2. Video chat is not there in this version!

  • Wez

    Hi sorry but I have posted this to the wrong section before and am reposting it here in the hope that someone can help me resolve my problem.

    Having tried to update to this firmware and after several failed attempts I now have a phone which is bricked. I have taken the battery out of it to stop it but every time i reconnect the battery all I get is a phone symbol with an orange triangle with a ! in the middle of it between a symbol representing a PC.

    I cannot get out of this and feel that my phone is bricked. I would not advise anyone to try this unless they are prepared to have a phone that is useless, sorry but I do not think it is worth the chance that your phone will end up like mine, useless as it is. Can someone please help me to try and recover my phone, thanks to anyone would can and will help.

    Best wishes Wez

    Hi Neal,

    I have purchased the new I9000 and by ur guided instructions i upgraded it to 2.3.5 FW which have to many force error & decreased battery life.

    But i want something better /good on my SGS, What about BlockBuster 5.5 or any other rom / FW like, SG2 FW, also it should have good pre -installed app,widgets, eye candy UI, and should have very good battery life.

    Can i upgrade blockbuster 5.5 directly on SGS FW 2.3.5 or i have to go back to 2.3.4 first, I have already rooted my SGS by ur instructions successfully.

    Thanx in Adv.

  • Freaky

    Is Samsung going to release this firmware officially?

    Whilst I like the hardware I think my next one is going to be a HTC because of the much faster firmware releases. Samsung really does seem to suck on that point. 2.3.3 has some security flaws in which it sends credentials over HTTP instead of HTTPS, which IMHO means Samsung MUST update.

    Yet they don’t seem to care about security at all :(.

  • Robrecht Anrijs

    Is it possible to upgrade without reïnstalling all the application that I’ve installed on my phone? By example is it possible to execute a backup (without rooting), installing the update, and do a restore? If so, how do I start?

    And where can I found all the changes that are applied in this update?

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

      no because it will clear all apps to prevent corruption of any data, you can root and take a backup of apps via Titanium app!

  • Mrs Hill

    I am following your instructions to the letter.
    When I get to the point when I have put my phone into download mode, I then attach to the PC via USG, but the Odin software does not recognise that it is attached, i.e. the ID:COM does not turn yellow.

    I know I can connect the phone to the PC because I have done so previously using the same USB cable and connected to KIES. In fact when I connect the phone while it is not in download mode, and select KIES to connect then the Odin software does infact acknowledge the phone is connect and ID:COM does turn yellow. I do not go any further since I know I can only upgrade in download mode.

    So why does Odin not recognise my phone in download mode? Any ideas?

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

    Hi Neal,
    I tried yesterday to update it. But it reversed in to the 2.3.3 from XXJVR 2.3.4. It was so sad moment for me.

    But Now I Successfully updated it in XXJVS 2.3.5. Please do not mind, I am in confusion in rooting as I am not advanced user, advise me, can I use the Root package of XXJVR 2.3.4 or is there any way. Please help me.

    I have one question, why Samsung does not give priority of Devnagari script in its phone, I could not see the script among more than 2 dozens of local languages. From 2.1 to 2.3.5 demand is high of the DEVNAGARI Script. It covers Sanskrit, Hindi, Nepali and so many other Indian Language. Please, Please include this Script in Samsung.
    Thank you.

  • Kartik Iyer

    Any idea when custom ROM for XXJVS 2.3.5 would be released? When can we expect this?

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

      hey kartik, it will be difficult to pin point the exact date but it will soon be updated at androidadvices.com

  • Tom

    I started the process as mentioned here, but it doesn’t go any further from:
    boot.bin
    ID:COM is still yellow

    But it doesn’t move from there. What can I do? Obviously I’m afraid of disconnecting the phone as I fear bricking it.

    What do you recommend?

    Oh, and the phone itself is stuck.

    Thanks ahead.

    Hi Neel,

    Is this applicable for I9003 also?

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

      Its not applicable to I9003

      • Tokem

        Do you mean that it IS applicable to GT-I9000M?

        Thanks,

        Tokem

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

          no, its not applicable for I9000M

        • Tokem

          Hi Neal!

          Is there anything on your site that applies to the I9000M? If not I won’t waste your time any further.

          Thanks,

          Tokem

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

            hey tokem be rest assured, we will try our level best to come out with the fw for your I9000M, wats the current version your phone is on?

        • Tokem

          Thanks Neal!

          Here are my phone’s OS specs: (I don’t really know what most of them mean)

          Bell Canada Vibrant
          Samsung Galaxy S
          GT-I9000M
          (Unlocked and running on the Rogers network)

          Firmware Version: Gingerbread 2.3.3 (Stock – from KIES)

          Baseband Version:
          I9000UGKG3

          Kernel Version
          2.6.35.7-I9000UGKG3
          sj0829.kwon@sep-08 #2

          Build number:
          Gingerbread.GKG3

          I had my phone rooted under Froyo (2.2) but lost it when I upgraded to 2.3.3 (had to Factory Reset to do it!). I need to restore Root so I can re-install my phone configuoration and apps with Titanium Backup. I would also like to try out the Voodoo lagfix (or whatever you recommend) because this stock doesn’t seem to be as stable or as fast as my 2.2 Froyo, though the battery life is a lot better. Also, I have issues because, every once in a while, get these weird black screens where the phone goes completely unresponsive. I have to remove the battery and restart. Anyway, any help you can give me is greatly appreciated!

          Thanks,

          Tokem

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

            this update is not applicable for I9000M!

        • Tokem In

          Hi Neal,

          I do understand that this change doesn’t apply to my phone. But you asked for the current version of my phone and I gave it to you (with a whole lot of other stuff that may or may not help). Now back to my previous question, can you suggest somewhere I can go where FW and fixes for the GT-I9000M are being looked into? Thanks.

          Tokem

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

            GT I900M doesnt support this firmware!

  • Tokem

    Neal, I have been following your advices for quite a while now. I am very impressed, but I haven’t been able to take advantage of your work because I have a GT-I9000M and I’ve read that it is not the same as the GT-I9000. Are there root instructions and roms for my particular phone on your site? Will your upgrades and lagfixes work on my I9000M? I just updated to stock GB 2.3.3 with Kies, but lost my root. Now I’m desperately trying to find a root solution so I can restore everything I had in Titanium Backup!

    Thanks for any help you can give me,

    Tokem

    • shavey

      I had the same issue and have since worked out that the JVS modem does not work when using an 850mhz service, nor can you enable it through call settings. Same phone works perfectly in the metro areas but totally dead whilst at home.

      Now in the process of resorting back to JVQ…

      • Carolina Rosado

        Shavey,

        Thanks for the reply – yep it looked great after the update but the home button did not have the same function and I have no network connection – after that my phone went completely dead. I tried downloading the zip file and installing the packet once more but nothing happened. now my phone is COMPLETELY DEAD – won’t even turn on at all, should be receiving replacement today…..oh well thank God for insurance otherwise I’d be F*&*$ :)
