Just downloaded it but this time there are 3 .tar files in it.

Do we flash all 3 and also i take it the CODE_I9000XWJFB.tar file goes under PDA.

What about MODEM_I9000XXJF5.tar which have the modem.bin file in it.

It was in tje same .tar file as the rest when i flashed XXJF2 earlier today.


Same questions here. Did you try to update? Not sure where to put the CODE file either..

No haven't tried to update yet.

If we go by the earlier firmware the CODE file goes in the PDA field but not sure sadly.

Edit: right got XXJF5 flashed.
CODE file in PDA field
MODEM File in PHONE field
CSC file in CSC field.

Though the default language when booting it up isn't english but easy enough to change if you can remember where the language settings are in android ;)

Version from *#1234# says:
PDA: I9000XWJFB
PHONE: I9000XXJF5
CSC: I9000SERJF3

CODE = PDA.

MODEM = PHONE.

CSC = CSC.


You don't need CSC with android phones this is for APN stuff.

Same here. Coming from F2 there was no way to make it work without all 3 of them.

Your post isn't very clear. Which software on the site are we supposed to download? There is no picture of a Galaxy S on the site to know that you're getting the proper files.

For those searching the site, go to the far right of the page where it says, "Firmware", then scroll down and select "Android" under Samsung Smart Phone, then scroll down and you'll see the Galaxy S picture. Click on that and follow the instructions.

I flashed the latest firmware using this method, found it very easy to use.
As reported in other posts the language in some of the samsung apps are in russian (I think)
Also one of my paid apps (Mybackup Pro) is no longer available and cannot be found in the market.

I noticed this too. I'm going to try to figure it out. I'm wondering if it's just re-downloading the Google Mobile suite. ????

For people that aren't very savvy, I can see how it could be a little convoluted for them. I had to poke around to get it.

I did the firmware upgrade to I90000XXJF5 successful, and like DDmen stated, it is pretty simple and quick. When I was done and it rebooted the language came up in Russian. I just navigated through the menus using the pictures and was able to change the language back to English. I have noticed that it is a lot less sluggish.

Besides that the Google Voice look-up option disappear, but I'm sure that will come back with a download of the Google Mobile Suite.

All of that being said though... the Kies Sync still gives me the same error, and I can't sync.

Thanks for the help DDmen!

Sorted! You can download it from the Market! It's the official Google Voice Search app. Once you've installed it, close (or trash it!) the Google Search Widget you have on your desktop, re-open it and there you go! :lol:

My internet and WIFI works great on JF5.

You have to fix the APN settings....

If you cant download anything in the Android Market you have to make a hard reset on your phone....

After that everthings will be work great.


NOTE you will lose alle things so make first a backup!

do you have an english version of CSC that I can use? I flashed the latest EU/RU firmware, and there's some problem with the language. I heard flashing the english version of CSC will fix it..

Remember you phone must be simlock FREE![/b]


DDMen can you please tell me, why the phone has to be simlock free? My phone is locked to the Austrian provider A1, so I cannot flash the newest roms from your site?

regards,

johoe

This might sound stupid, but I've been trying to search and ask around a few forums w/o much knowledge, since there hasn't been too many Android phones launched in Finland and for that reason, this is my first Android too.

I got a few basic questions:

-Do I lose warranty when flashed to these official firmwares? There was also talk that one couldn't use Kies to upgrade anymore if once flashed?
-Do I have to backup the phone before flashing? If yes, could someone recommend a good app/program to do so?

I noticed there's no JF3, which I currently have. Is there a way to backup my current firmware moderately easy? If flashing indeed causes me the warranty of the phone, I would like to be able to flash it back to JF3 to get the warranty back.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(Sorry for my English, not my native language)
