How To Update Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 to Gingerbread 2.3.4 XXKP7

Galaxy S I9003 LogoIf you own a Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 then you will now be pleased to hear that you can now enjoy the flavor of Gingerbread 2.3.4 for your phone. Last time we saw on how you can update your phone with the Froyo 2.2.1 version. This new version of Gingerbread comes along with the host of benefits which we will see in the due course of this article. With the arrival of this update most of the issues have now been solved, the major problem being the problem of lower battery power in the Froyo 2.2.1 version.

So, let’s see how you can install this firmware on your Samsung Galaxy SL i9003. Also, please note that this update is only for model which is Samsung Galaxy S LCD-I9003 and not for any other device like for Galaxy S GT I9000, Vibrant, Captivate, Mesmerize, Fascinate, Epic etc. Kindly follow the below mentioned steps carefully as if you don’t follow the steps then it may dead your phone. We take no responsibility if you update this firmware by downloading files from any other site apart from Androidadvices.com as the files which are distributed by some of the forums might have virus or any other unwanted files which may even spoil the phone.

Since this version of update is the leak version there will be some minor glitches which may come up with this firmware version but soon with the arrival of the official update, all the bugs will be solved. Also, note that this is not the version which is released by the Samsung KIES, but updating with this version of the firmware doesn’t mean that you have either rooted your phone or void the warranty and also if you have rooted your phone earlier then note that the rooting access will be revoked and for rooting again you will have to root the phone as soon as you update your phone.
