Flash/Install/Update to Gingerbread 2.3.4 to I9000: Detailed


I cannot guarantee that this process will work for you as it did for me. If something goes wrong I will do everything I can to help you, but you are responsible. This is a guide for the I9000 international version.

What you need (All links are direct download):

Firmware you wish to flash. Generally find them here.
Odin3 v1.85 (Contained in the firmware)

USB Cable
Ability to get into download mode ( Vol Down + Home + Power On or Download Mode Adapter )

Backup ,

  • SMS using "GO sms", "SMS backup and Restore" or "SMS Backup +"(syncs with Gmail).
  • Contacts using "GO contacts" or other preferred app.
  • APN using "APN Backup & Restore" (internal SD save, handles duplicates)
  • Call logs using "Call Logs Backup & Restore" (internal SD save)
    [*}Bookmarks using "Backup Bookmarks"
These will all be saved onto the internal SD card which WON'T be wiped during the update process. If you wish to backup your SD card as well, then be my guest.


phone should be in download mode, but have it unplugged from the computer. Extract the firmware and run Odin3,

In odin, there is a lot you don't really need to worry about. Just make sure that Re-Partition, Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time ARE ticked.

Click the button that says PIT, navigate to the folder you unzipped the firmware into, select the PIT file. Press the PDA button and select the CODE file. Press the PHONE button and select the MODEM file. Press the CSC button and select the CSC file.

Now (in download mode) plug in your phone. It may take some time for the phone to register with the computer and it may fail. If that's the case then see Appendix: USB Drivers.

Odin should now look like this with the yellow COM representing your phone connected.


Be extremely careful while Odin is flashing your device. . Once your phone is connected properly and odin is prepared, hit install. This should take around 2-10 minutes depending on your computer etc. Once done, the phone should reboot and voila you now have gingerbread.
