Update Samsung Galaxy Gt i9000 Gingerbread XXJVR 2.3.4 Firmware

Rooting is the method to gain master control over your Smartphone. It aims at overcoming the limitations & restrictions imposed by the manufacturer. In more simple words, it is like altering the Operating system to get desired optimization. In the section below, we will discuss about the method to root Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 on Android 2.3.4 XXJVR.
Before we talk anything else it should be noted that this “How to” is about “XXJVR” version of Android 2.3.4 only. The procedure discussed below might not work for other versions of Android. If you have, some confusion regarding the version of your Smartphone then got to ‘About Phone’ in ‘Settings’.  Then select ‘Firmware Version’. If it shows XXJVR 2.3.4, then things are fine and you can continue…

Before you continue

  • Rooting is like a double-sided sword, the moment you will perform rooting on your Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 the warranty will lapse. 
  • This clearly means the company will not perform any sort of repair or replacements (if applicable).
  • Create a backup for call logs, text messages, music, applications, videos and other important data. Also, make a note of your settings such as APN.
  • Charge your phone batteries fully before rooting because if it got dead during the process then there is a possibility that it may not wake up forever.
  • Make sure that you have the latest framework, installed ‘XXJVR Complete Rooting Package’ on your PC, latest version of KIES and your firmware version is XXJVR

Time to root Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000

  • Connect the Smartphone to PC via USB cable in download mode and ensure its proper detection.
  • ID:COM box will appear in some time. Then have a click on the he PDA tab.
  • Now under the PDA tab, select the file “CF-Root-XX_UNK_JVQ-v3.7-CWM3RFS.tar”.
  • Click on START to begin the rooting of your Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000.
  • The process will take some time to continue, remain calm and wait for the process to complete.

Rooting is not for everyone, go for it only when you know what are you doing and what you want. There are a lot many side effects if not done with care.

      Hi… I’ve been searching everywhere, but am still confused about something. Can i9000 (Galaxy S, if I’m not mistaken) firmware work on a p1000 (Galaxy Tab 7″) device?

    2. No, both the devices are different and hence the firmwares are different!
