ValuePack Update for Samsung Galaxy S with Face Unlock I9000 XXJVU 2.3.6

Value PACK LogoAfter so much of flip flops, Samsung Electronics seems to be in the making of Value Pack for the users of Galaxy S, this Value packs is in lines with their Official announcement that it will be going to launch a Value Pac very soon. So, today we will check out an all new firmware update for Galaxy S GT I9000 which is dubbed as XXJVU 2.3.6 Firmware which is the global leaked version. This update of XXJVU 2.3.6 comes after the most stable firmware till now of Gingerbread 2.3.5 and is truly packed with a host of add on features and enhancements which we will be checking out in the due course of the article. The firmware which we will be checking out is not a fully stable value pack but is a beta version of the Value pack which got leaked.

This update brings In just one improvement compared to the last version. There were some graphic rich games like NFS Shift HD and others which when played used to heat up the phone terribly. This bug has been fixed in this version of firmware. This was an issue with the users of XWJVZ which has been addressed in this.

KIES Information:
This update of XXJVU Gingerbread 2.3.6 is not an Official firmware released via KIES tool and you need to make use of Odin to apply this update.

Also, there is no ETA on exactly when this update will be pushed via KIES tool but as soon as this update arrives, we will cover that one as well if at all there are any changes.

Currently if your device is being detected by KIES then after applying, your phone won’t be detected in Official KIES Tool

Note: Please note that this is not the Official firmware released by Samsung Electronics Ltd. and also after applying this update you will not be able to make use of KIES tool as this is the beta firmware. The only way you can install the firmware is with the Odin which we have mentioned in this article.

  • Mukesh

    Hi! from where do I donwload the Value Pack to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy S GT19000 handset. Pls help urgent.

  • Edward

    As Michael said, the password is -> samfirware.com. So the article is either using an outdated shared s/ware link or the articles is very outdated.

    There are only 3 files inside. This means whoever uploaded it only uses 3 files.
    1. CODE_I9000XXJVU_CL851880_REV03_user_low_ship.tar.md5
    2. GT-I9000-CSC-MULTI-OXAJVU.tar.md5
    3. MODEM_I9000XXJVU_REV_00_CL1092175.tar.md5

    That’s about it. Unless the author updates his article, the buck stops here.

    Thanks.

    • Pradeep Neela

    only been learning about flashing firmwares about 4weeks now and i have i9000 on 2.3.6xxjvu(rooted)with semaphore kernel?. and have recently flashed back to this as the dark knight ics4.0.4 rom i was using had problems with the tv out and fc’s. is there any ics roms that are as stable as the jvu? why cant i find any honeycomb roms for the i9000 and is it true that its not a good idea to use them on the i9000. other than that the value pack 2.3.6 is one of the best roms ive used and is the one i keep going back to. can i get a ics theme for it and how do i apply it?(can i use rom toolbox or suchlike?)ive tried about 20 or so roms in last month but think the 2.3.6jvu rom is my favourite.

            hey buddy yr having pro , i hv downloaded 2.3.6 but now its not unzipping , downloaded two tym but same issue .using 2.3.5 should I upgrade it?

  • Aakash

    OK, I was following this update step by step but then i noticed you have written that ticking re-partition might brick your phone. I was on cm7 before following this guide and I ignorantly ticked the re-partition box. And it worked. So I don’t know how it can be dangerous.

    • Pradeep Neela

      you can re apply the update by following the instructions

  • Joseph

    I did the odin thing.
    It did it succesfully
    Phone wont turn on.

  • mujahid

    hi plz help me,,
    after extracting file i went into download mode and wen i open odin the id;com section was not going into yellow. where from i download the require conecting driver download.i am using samsung galaxy s .i am waiting for your answer.
    thank you

    • Ratze

      You have to install KIES to install the drivers. After that stop all KIES-Applications, start Odin and connect your phone again –  the divers should be loaded now and ODIN should find your phone now.
      Keep in mind that you have to run ODIN with administration rights.

    Hi Neela,

    I am currently on 2.3.2 firmware

    XXJVE

    Build number GINGERBREAD XWJV1

    When I put the phone in download mode and connect it via USB the ID COM box won’t turn yellow. The USB works fine. I guess I need the correct drivers to install. Do I need to install them on my phone or my computer or both and can you tell me where to find them.

    Cheers mate.

  • ROB VANES

    Hi guys… I really want to upgrade my Galaxy S GT-I9000 with 2.3.3 to Value Pack,but…something keeps me back… Maybe I prefer to do this via KIES,that’s why…? Is there any news from Samsung about this? I dont’t belive that they will put this for Galaxy S on the Kies,but the same time I’m still waiting…
    What you will suggest me? Shall I try to upgrade with instructions above? Is that really no risky to damage the phone?

    Thanks!

    • Pradeep Neela

      yes you can apply teh update!

    • Pradeep Neela

    March 15,20012

    Hi Neela,

    I have Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000; Firmware 2.3.4 ; Baseband version I9000 XXJVR ; Build no. Gingerbread XXJVR ; Kernnel Version 2.6.35.7- I9000XXJVR – CL 425308 se.infra@ SEP-63#2

    I was having force close issue so I carried out hard reset and went through the procedure and lastly reeboot. Then I backed up. I connected to Kies and saw there was an update so I did that. On the Kies it recorded that the firmware version is now PDA: JVR / PHONE: JVR / CSC : JVR(SWC)
    However on the phone the firmware was still 2.3.6

    There two things that I have observed.
    1. If say I uninstall an application like Skype and turn off the device at night for charging, when I turn on the device next day this application re-install automatically.
    2. If I copy say music via Kies on to the device and turn off the device at night for charging, when I turn on the device next day the music copied has been deleted.

    Well the normal phone functions work all right but the force close problem is still there particulary with Skype, Whatsup, Bible and AVG anti virus.

    Please advice and help soonest.

    Thanks in advance,

    Kwasi.

    hi Neal,

    I tried XXJVS,XXJVA, and XXJVU ..In all this attempts my wifi is not stable. It is getting disconnected every now and then. Is this common or is it specific to me. My Wifi was working without any issue earlier

  • Rick

    So I had XXJVT and upgrading XXJVU. XXJVU runs well. I rooted XXJVT with CWM so i backedup with the CWM. I rooted XXJVU with CWM as well then I restored my backup. My phone showed that it is already I9000XXJVU but the android version still says 2.3.5 and the face unlock feature somehow disappeared. Can you help me here to restore it successfully without having the features gone or something? I appreciate it that this update runs faster on my phone and uses less memory which means I can play games without lag, but really miss face unlock feature. Can you help me here somehow?

    I have found that the recovery didnt start for me either. I ran the firmware upgrade part again from Odin.

    Then disconnected the usb.
    Then Turned off the phone. Held power button, the clicked power off.

    Nothing happened. didnt go into recovery mode. the phone just turned off. (as per instructions)

    Assuming, i have to turn it back on again I did. Still no recovery mode?

    can anyone explain, i’m flashing from standard rom.

  • mehrdad

    When I hit the start button it says

    MD5 hash value is invalid
    CODE_I9000XXJVU_CL851880_REV03_user_low_ship.tar.md5 is invalid.
    End…

    Which is more stable… 2.3.5 xxjvt or 2.3.6 xxjvu? Im just wondering should I update my phone to this or keep it just XXJVT……

    Hi, I’m in the process of updating my firmware at the moment, but my phone is stuck on the first screen when I turned it back on after I disabled Voodoo. I got the robotic voice telling me it was working, but now it has been about 3 hours and it is still on that screen. Could you tell me if this is normal (I do have a lot of apps), or if something is wrong, and if so, is there anything I can do to fix it?

    Thanks

    Ben

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

      you can re insert the battery and re apply the update!

  • Ben

    Hi, I am currently on XXJVP, so I’m just wondering if I can update straight to this version or do I need to put on another version first. If so can you please tell me which version(s) I need to use first.

    Dear Neal,

    My SGS i9000 was nearly bricked. Fortunately managed to Odin flashed it. How it’s back to stock ROM
    with
    Firmware version 2.3.3
    Baseband version i9000DXJV9
    Kernel: 2.6.35.7-i9000DXJV9-CL216763 root@SE-S604 #2
    Build number: GINGERBREAD.DXJV9

    Can I just Odin follow instructions as above to upgrade?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Dave

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

      yes you can upgrade to this version!!

      • Dave

        Thanks Neela,

        I think I successfully flashed it in. Thanks a million.
        Only question is, the last step of “Clear Dalvik Cache”, I couldn’t find the option in the recovery mode. I noticed I’m now on as oppose to the shown in the photo above. Am I missing something?

        Regards,

    hello guyz,

    i have been trying to update to the valuepack. I am currently on 2.3.7, XXJVK, CM Mod 7 (Nightly). However am having issues, my PC does not recognize my device any longer except it is in data-storage mode. Both Kies and USB debugging mode are not recognized despite having the latest drivers and kies installed.

    Another issue noticed is that my IMEI has changed to 004999010640000.

    Please any assistance rendered in this regard will be highly appreciated.

    Hi Neal,
    Thanks you for your wonderful work. I have Gingerbread.2.3.3 for my galaxy GT-I9000 and i am from India. I am happy with 2.3.3 factory firmware.I want to update my phone with any of the latest android OS with good stability, no wifi issues, no foreclosure issues, good battery back up.

    In fact i am quite happy with 2.3.3 battery back up and overall stability. There are different OS versions mentioned in your website, namely

    2.3.6 XXJVU
    2.3.5 XFJVA
    2.3.5 XWJVU
    2.3.5 XXJVT

    Out of the above 4, 2.3.5 XFJVA is a global official release pushed is some countries where as 2.3.5 XWJVU is official release for Portugal.

    Please suggest honestly which one to take out of the above 4. I don’t do much experiments with my phone till now and want a overall best firmware.

    Thanks

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

      Go with XXJVT Firmware!

      • Puspak

        Hi Neal,
        Thanks for your quick response. I read that there is a fix for foreclosure and performance issues for 2.3.5 XXJVT.
        Do i need to put that fix after applying the 2.3.5 XXJVT firmware ?

        I am going to do it for the 1st time. So i am little bit apprehensive. Will it be detected by SKIES ? Will the battery and performance be better than the 2.3.3 firmware ?

        What about the GTalk video call ? In which firmware version it is supported ?

        Thanks

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

          it wont be detected in kies!

        • Puspak

          Hi Neal,
          You did not answer the other questions.

          I read that there is a fix for foreclosure and performance issues for 2.3.5 XXJVT.
          Do i need to put that fix after applying the 2.3.5 XXJVT firmware ?

          Hi Neal,
          One last question.

          I read that there is a fix for foreclosure and performance issues for 2.3.5 XXJVT.
          Do i need to put that fix after applying the 2.3.5 XXJVT firmware ?

          Sorry for troubling you, but i can not stop appreciating your work.

          Thanks

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

            yes there is a fix for xxjvt firmware!

        • Puspak

          Hi Neal,
          Is applying the fix a must or it is for those who see foreclosure and performance issues ?

          Thanks

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

            there is no fix for this but you can clear the cache!

        • Puspak

          Hi Neal,
          Is this fix for 2.3.5 XXJVT a must ?

          When i tried to download the zip file, i am getting “404 Not Found” error.

          if it is not a must, then i won’t put it.

          Thanks

            its not a fix for xxjvt, we have already covered the XXJVT FIX!

    Hi Pradeep,

    Need your help.

    I have recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S and the specs are as foolows:
    GT-I9000 with frimware as 2.2
    Baseband I9000JXJPE
    Kernel Version 2.6.32.9ROOT@SEP-S606#91
    Build no FROYO.JPJPG

    This is Middle East version which dint have market, but i installed it using *#272*IMEIno#.

    Now when m trying to update the firmware with this latest one, the ODRIN is not detecting my mobile (download mode) ??

    Should I upgrade it to some other firmware ??

    Thanks & regards.

        Whenever i connect my phone to the PC, it gives an error as “USB not recognized install drivers”. I tried installing drivers (which i found on net) I also tried it on different PC but still the same… Can you please help me to solve this issue? or can u suggest any other possible solution? any driver that might help? Is there any particular setting on the phone which is required?

        Appreciate.

    I wonder if there’s anything I can do to further enhance my i9000 performance.
    example, lagfix?

  • Moad

    well i downloaded the phone and updated the firmware, i was following the steps correctly but when i reached to the point when i have to enter the device into the recovery mood it just didn’t! all what it said in the instructions that disconnect your phone and restart it and it will enter but it did not, the phone is working very well but im afraid if i don’t follow all the instructions that might cause some problems into the phone, please i need some help and thank you so much for your work.

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

    This is Middle East version and i downloaded Market by using *#272*IMEIno# and it worked fine.

    But when m updating the firmware with this latest one 2.3.6, its not happening.

    what’s difference between rooting and manually applying update via odin,does rooting void warranty, how to bring back original firmware or how to unroot the phone??
    kindlyreply
    thanks

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

      rooting is different from updating! you can install with DDJV9 Firmware to revert back to official version!

      thanks empoy for your appreciation!

  • Sourabh K

    I have updated to value pack. Everything is very very good except the battery life. I was using XWJVZ. It had given me the best battery life so far among all firmwares. With Value pack battery life came down to one third of XWJVZ. This is very much disappointing.

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

      have you checked by clearing the cache?

      • Sourabh K

        yes, I have done hardware reset after firmware update.

  • Usman

    Thanks Android Advice!

    I have done it successfully and I will share my experience regarding this update.

    I just want to know that can I go for one click solutions for tooting available on different forums.

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

      we will come with the same within the next 12 hours!

    I have CM 7 currently. I entered recovery mode and did “Wipe data/factory reset”, “Wipe Cache partition” and “Clear Dalvik Cache” and rebooted.

    After this, I switched off and tried to enter Download mode, which doesn’t open. The phone just simply boots into CM7 again. How to enter Download mode now?

    Is this because there is no more a download mode after installing CM7? I can enter recovery mode easily though, can this update be applied from the recovery mode by copying into sdcard?

    Thanks in advance

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

      please stick to the instructions! we have summed up all in depth!

      • http://k4rtik.wordpress.com Kartik

        I asked because instructions were not working for me.

        Anyway I was able to enter the Download mode after removing the USB cable and trying again. And then successfully applied the mod. Thanks for providing the files and tutorial. :)

I get a phone !(in a orange triangle) computer symbol. Is my phone bricked ? I’m able to get into download mode though. In the above post you have mentioned to flash XXJVT firmware. Will this solve this issue. If so where can i find it. Awaiting you reply. Thanks in advance.
