How to Update Samsung Galaxy S I9000 with Official Gingerbread 2.3.5 XFJVA Firmware

Galaxy S LogoAdvisory: This update is not applicable for the users of I9000M/B, Vibrant, Captivate or Mesmerize or any other similar models like I9001 Plus or I9003 models of Galaxy. The below mentioned article is just valid for Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000.

Just in case if you have updated with the latest version of Gingerbread 2.3.5 XXJVT firmware for Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000, then we are here to bring another update of an all new Gingerbread 2.3.5 release. This all new update is released via KIES and is dubbed as XFJVA and is the Gingerbread 2.3.5 version of firmware. This update is an improved version of Gingerbread 2.3.5 which comes with many stability fixes and also is found to be the firmware which comes with the better battery backup. The best part of this version is that it can be applied by any of the Galaxy S GT I9000 users.

Disclaimer: At Android Advices, we have made sure in all respects that all the information regarding the firmware update is mentioned correctly in this article. We hold no responsibility in any manner just in case if any damage happens to your Samsung Galaxy Tab which is a very unlikely event if you follow the instructions carefully.

Rooting Information:

  • Applying this firmware doesn’t require you to root the phone and also applying this firmware won’t root the phone which means that the warranty too won’t be void.
  • If you are already on the rooted firmware then the rooting access will be revoked after applying with this firmware.

Let’s proceed with the quick list of pre requisites followed by the instructions to apply this new Gingerbread 2.3.5 release of XFJVA.

Quick List of Pre Requisites:

  • Back up all the user data present in your phone as this may get lost or corrupted in the process of firmware update. Just in case if any damage is done to your data, the same can be replaced with the backed up one. With the below mentioned tips, one can easily backup and restore the data.

Notes – Backup in the mail so that you can then restore manually
SMS Messages – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts Stored in Phone Memory – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log - Call Log and Restore
Videos, Images, Videos & Files etc.– Copy to internal / External SD Card,
Internet & MMS Settings – Backup all the settings from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • Ensure that the device is charged with the minimum of 60% so as to make sure that the phone doesn’t get turned Off in the process of the firmware update.
  • Enable the USB Debugging in your phone. It can be enabled from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging”. Additionally, close all the tools like Antivirus, Firewall and PC Suite in your computer as these tools generally interrupt the process of the firmware update.

Special Instructions to users on Any Custom ROMs:
If you are on any of the custom ROMs then you will have to enter into the recovery mode to clear all the cache files or else you may face issues while applying this update of Gingerbread 2.3.5 XFJVA.

The recovery mode can be entered by pressing  Volume UP Key + OK button, and holding both simultaneously press the Power Button. You can also refer to the below mentioned video to know more on how to enter into the recovery mode.

In the recovery mode select Wipe data/factory reset and also you need to select Wipe Cache partition and then reboot your device by selecting reboot system now option.

Now, without wasting any further time lets proceed to the procedure to apply this firmware to your phone in the next page.

    Thank you for the great information and update. It worked perfectly!

    After installing the firmware update, Kies shows that this is no longer an upgradable device. It’s fine for now, but will I always have to scour the internet for the latest updates and install manually? Or will Kies eventually update my phone in the future when even newer updates roll out? Thanks!

  43. Reply Camile February 19, 2012 at 12:40 am

    Hey Pradeep Neela, i asked if this version had a russian locale and in above messages you said it did. But it doesn’t. Also, when i turned why phone on, while keeping the odin open i had the yellow COM things in this way. On your picture in the tutorial it said 0 [COM6] and when i did the same it had 3 yellow slots filled out with 0 [COM6], 1 [COM3], 2 [COM5].
    I did the update and in the 0 [COM6] it was green and said updated. Then my phone restarted and while the odin was still opened it said in red failed in the 2 [COM5] section. Can tell what was that all about? Should i apply the update again?

    • Reply Pradeep Neela February 24, 2012 at 9:55 am

    I installed this version of Android on my I9000 3 weeks ago. Now I have a problem when I restart my phone (due to apps not working, changing SIM etc.). The phone starts its restart process, flashes the Samsung log..and then it goes blank again and starts the process one more. This goes on and on for at least 30 minutes. I have seen this problem once or twice before on my phone, but after this update it has happened every time I restart.

    Neal, last evening i update from 2.3.3 to 2.3.5 with baseband I9000XXJVT just as explained on the site.
    I have 2 questions/problems;

    1: is there perhaps a dutch version?

    2: there is 1 problem with the sound to my parrot MKI 9200 in the car. untill yesterday this system worked perfectly but after the update my carsystem doesn’t play my music anymore over the carspeakers. telephonefunctions work perfectly but other sound from telephone to parrot he can’t put it on the speakers. normally when i play the music my radio goed to \phone\mode and your can hear it but now the music only comes out of the telephone speaker.

    can you advice me what to do?
    kind regards

    Mario

      no not as now,
      we dont know much about parrot MKI 9200, if you could brief on how it works then we might help you with the solution!

      • Reply mario November 24, 2011 at 3:39 am

        parrot makes it possible to stream music via blootooth from telephone to autospeakers. as mentioned before telephone functions work fine via bleutooth on the radio but music and other sounds ( like ringtones ) he doesn’t see them anymore.
        it looks like the telephone is not sending a “message” to the bleutooth device an dplay the music.

        no idea when dutch version will come?

        thanks
        Mario

    Dear Neal,

    I updated the other day and after two days my internal memory, the internal SD Card partition went wrong. I tried flashing it again and again, using Froyo instead of Gingerbread and still no good. The phone stays ok for say 24 hours then I swithe it off and it won’t boot. It stays in the first screen (Samsung Galaxy S i9000 GT) switches off, comes back and goes on like this until I put it in recover mode where it says: the SD Card is not ok and I need to recover it with the UI but then the UI doesn’t work either.

    What can I do? Can you help?

    Kind regards,

    Pedro

    Hi,

    After installing this firmware I cannot find some of my apps that I have already bought from market.
    I contacted android support and they replied “unauthorized operating systems (custom ROMs) may have limited functionality due to the compatibility of the device. Some Developers block Custom Roms. For best results, I recommend using the authorized Android operating system”.

    What is the best thing to do?

    Many thanks,

    I have XXJVT custom ROM. I do have issue of force closing of Contact list, and when I try to phone somebody or Message it close the phone.

    Will this version have fix to those issue. Even thought its was mentioned in XXJVT post that these issues are fix, but still after following the instructions line by line and even after cache and factory data wipe still the phone is showing those errors.

    Just to let you know, I am using Titanium Backup to restore my System data and other files. Will it be possible that these restore is causing this issue. If so then do you know any workaround.

    Thanks for the information on the official version of Gingerbread 2.3.5 XFJVA firmware for the Galaxy S i9000 .
    You’ve confirmed that once updated then the phone will require re-rooting to make use of the apps that only work with rooted phones.
    Usually you tell us if previous articles such as the one on rooting gingerbread 2.3.5 XXJVT will work on the XFJVA firmware. Will it work?
    If not will you be producing an article on how to root Gingerbread 2.3.5 XFJVA? if so any idea when?
