    Will cyanogenmod work on this device ?

    The galaxy s I9000 is listed so yes it will work fine. Make sure you follow ALL the install instructions step by step and you should be fine.
  2. Found framaroot and am now rooted. Thank you very much.
  3. I bought the More Fine S6 Pro about a month ago from Deals Prime, had no problems with them at all. The phone is fantastic. Has anyone else bought this phone? I'm trying to find a root for it but not had much luck so far.

    CWM Crashing on varous Rom install's?

    Most custom roms go in the phones internal sd card in the root directory and should be an update.zip file. When you download the custom rom it may be compressed with winrar, you will need to extract it, you should then be left with a tar file and it will say update.zip. So lets say the name of the custom rom is richardjcustomrom, it should look like this richardjcustomrom_update.zip, when in recovery look for "install zip from sdcard", on the next screen "choose zip from sdcard" on the next screen look for richardjcustomrom_update.zip You don't need to rename anything

    CWM Crashing on varous Rom install's?

    Yes that is correct. If your using JW4 firmware you need the CF-Root for JW4. Flash the JW4 firmware using odin and then flash CF-Root using odin. Personally I would uninstall rom manager. When you want to flash a custom rom make sure you place the file, the update.zip on the ROOT of the internal sd card, then boot into recovery and select install from sd card. PM me if you get stuck.

    CWM Crashing on varous Rom install's?

    Welcome to the forum. Have you tried doing a wipe data/factory reset, this normally sorts most problems out. Go into recovery mode and select wipe data/factory reset. It will wipe all you accounts ect. You also need to make sure you have the right version of CWM for your firmware. Have a look here: http://www.theandroi...y-for-galaxy-s/ Look here also: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=788108

    New owner, newbie questions

    Hi there, Once the phone is unlocked, it's unlocked for good, even if you flash a custom rom. Odin is the flashing tool to use. When you have downloaded the correct firmware for your device and region, you will then extract the contents using winrar. When extracted you will have either one file that will contain, PDA,PHONE and CSC, this file will then go into the PDA section in odin. If you have four files, .PIT, CODE, MODEM and CSC, they go into odin like this: PIT = .PIT PDA = CODE PHONE = MODEM CSC = CSC If using a .PIT, Re-Partition needs to ticked. To get CWM you will need to flash a kernel that has CWM included in it, this kernel is put into PDA in odin. It is very difficult to completely brick these phones, but if something does go wrong you can normally get it sorted out by either a re-flash or by doing a wipe data/factory reset from recovery mode.

    query about my Samsung Galaxy S

    To find out if the phone is locked to the Orange network, type the following into the dial pad as if you were going to make a phone call *#7465625# if on the next screen it says all locks are on then you will need to get it unlocked, if all locks are off then your good to go. Leaked stock firmware can be found at samfirmware.com, soon to be samMobile.com, you will need to register on both sites before you can download. You will also find guides on there to help you.

    Reformat phone without losing app data?

    Glad it worked for you. JVQ is the latest firmware version available via kies at the moment.

    Reformat phone without losing app data?

    I take it you have the Galaxy S GT-I9000? Doing a wipe data/factory reset is going to wipe the phone of your Google and Samsung accounts. You can install Titanium Backup and back up apps and there data. JVO firmware is quit old now so why not check with kies to see if it offers you a update, if it doesn't you can always flash new firmware using odin. Head over to samfirmware.com, register on the site and then you can download any firmware for your phone. There are guides on there to help you with the flashing process.

    Galaxy S wont go past Splash screen?

    I hope this helps to explain what a kernel is, it's quite difficult to explain so I borrowed the following from wikipedia. Yes you can mix and match kernels to different roms, providing the Firmware/Rom version matches the kernel version. If you are using say a firmware or Rom that is JVP then you would need a kernel for JVP. The F1 Rom I am currently using has the Dark Core kernel to start with, but I flashed the Galaxian kernel which helps to speed the phone up. In computing, the kernel is the main component of most computer operating systems; it is a bridge between applications and the actual data processing done at the hardware level. The kernel's responsibilities include managing the system's resources (the communication between hardware and software components).[1] Usually as a basic component of an operating system, a kernel can provide the lowest-level abstraction layer for the resources (especially processors and I/O devices) that application software must control to perform its function. It typically makes these facilities available to application processes through inter-process communication mechanisms and system calls. Operating system tasks are done differently by different kernels, depending on their design and implementation. While monolithic kernels execute all the operating system code in the same address space to increase the performance of the system, microkernels run most of the operating system services in user space as servers, aiming to improve maintainability and modularity of the operating system.[2] A range of possibilities exists between these two extremes.

    Galaxy S wont go past Splash screen?

    Your more than welcome. Glad you have sorted it out. That video is a good one. If you want to flash a custom rom at some point there are quite a few to choose from, I'm using one called F1 GS2 v6 with the Galaxian kernel. It has the look and fell of the Galaxy S II and it's stupidly fast.

    Head over to smafirmware.com, register on the site. If your in the UK you need to download either of these I9000XXJVQ or I9000XXJVR. Inside the download you will find what you need to flash the new firmware. You will also find a guide to flashing on samfirmware.com. You can send me a PM if you need more help.
