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

    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 So the article is either using an outdated shared s/ware link or the articles is very outdated.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.

    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.

      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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

        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 ?

        Another thing, I am currently on XXJVT and having the force close problems, so should I currently update the XXJVT Fix Zip file to fix the Force Close problem and following that, update to the XXJVU 2.3.6, or can I just skip the XXJVT Fix Zip and proceed straight to the value pack? I just do not want to be experiencing the force close issues in the value pack. Thx, pls assist.

        • Pradeep Neela January 24, 2012 at 12:36 am

          you can skip the xxjvt fix!

    Dear Neal,
    Some time earlier you told about an application named Mobile Odin which can be used to update FWs on SGG GT I9000. I have already installed the App. Can I download this FW package as it is directly to my phone and update it using the Mobile Odin? Or, should I unzip it and need copy only the .rar files to phone? Could explain the procedures to update this FW on my SGS GT I9000 using the Mobile Odin?

    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?
