  7. Dear Neal

    I am from India and I recently got a Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9003 from Singapore which has some Chinese applications installed and these Chinese apps get active during phone calls and SMS automatically. These Chinese apps were not able to uninstall from “Applications” menu. Is there any way i can uninstall those Chinese apps or if i upgrade with your XXKPN can i still use my phone normally with all the features provided by Samsung for this model but without those Chinese apps? However, i prefer to have Chinese language support as i travel to china often. Pls suggest. Thanks.

  8. help me.. all it says is failed and my phone is now not booting.. i cant flash my phone.. please reply immediately.. i’m so worried

  9. btw, this firmware has a bug, quite important imo. Steps to reproduce:
    1) Lock the screen, and just leave your i9003 on the table, and wait. Don’t turn on the screen.
    2) 30 minutes later, from a PC or another phone, send an email to your phone’s registered Gmail a/c. Don’t touch your phone yet until it beeps and notify you.

    3) This step 3) will never happen, because the phone will not beep or alert before you start interacting with it. :-(

    You may try again with Whatsapp. Same result.

  10. Very nice how-to. But to make it complete, could you also include a step or link on how-to backup the current firmware (and restore)? So that we can always go back for warranty please.

    I have 2 phones of same model, one followed the instructions here, but cannot go back to Froyo for warranty.
