  1. am so ******* happy and surprised

  2. **** you Samsung… we already have ICS on Sgs.we need only some drivers for camera.

  3. I think much of Samsungs ideas went into ICS, but after more than 6 month suffering from a bad firmware (DBT) we demand at least a fully working GB ROM … looks like we will get some candy as reward.

  4. Im downloading now I hope that this FW work Fine!!

  5. @mihaitaus, idd!

  6. we don’t even have this on sgs2 working unless you use the CM9 patch

  7. What the hell is Samsung doing ? almost everyday they change their minds…one day ‘yes’, one day ‘may be’ the other day ‘no’….
    like the bada update comedy for waves…
    I am sure now they smoke strange things in the HQ’s…..
    if it goes like this they will put Android on Waves and Bada on SGS II…..

  8. Good surprise! Shut up guys!

  9. Strange people.

    If Samsung put the real ICS on their phones nobody will buy any SGSII or SGS.
    They all will buy a Google phone.


  10. Woohooo thank you samsungç. Releasing an ics is easier than this job. Thank you sammy!


  12. Ok I only took 10 minutes or less to realize that the camera is more faster and have better quality, The gallery is so fast now, The new lockscreen is better than before. Try yourself!

  13. Hahaha Gingerbread Mod Ice Cream Sandwich….
    Fuck Samsung Not Release Ice Cream Sandwich…

  14. So far – 1 hour running – a great fw
    cf-root for this exists as well since 3 hours !!! thank you Chainfire !!! + with ext4 conversion this is the fastest SGS I’ve ever seen :-))

    Hope, there are no bad bugs within but so far a big Thank You Sammy!

  15. We want ICS, we don’t want to be lead on!

  16. can i flash this to an i9001 ? Just being curious , thanks.

  17. @nenat00
    no, you can’t flash i9000 firmware to an i9001 cause of different hardware (cpu, chip set) but maybe Samsung will do something similar to the i9001.

    At least the official reason not to support ICS – not enough memory to run Touchwiz smoothly – fits both, the SGS and SGS+ – and the SGS+ is a too new device to let it out of update politics after only a few months existence.

  18. thanks for the quick reply.

  19. very old android 2.3.6

  20. Galaxy S was the last Samsung device I ‘ve bought.
    No more Samsung products for me.

  21. I think it’s so sweet by Samsung, to give us something ….
    I guess later introduce the ICS that power can be but I guess it will be another tactic Samsung merchant first introducing more models ICS pointers, and then when you p*** the novelty of 4.0 and will introduce you to the rest.
    Excuse my English I’m using a translator.

  22. I’m pretty happy with this update. Some of the people here should get a grip. I don’t know how many android phones you had but come on – I’ve had SGS since it’s release and do you know how many phones from a year and a half ago are still getting updated? I’m never getting anything else but Samsung phones from now on. You expect a phone released with eclair 2.1 to get 3 major official updates – that has never happened. Yeah, Nexus S has ICS and the same hardware bit it was released with Gingerbread, so that’s its first Android version update – that’s like if SGS just got Froyo, so get over it.

  23. Why not Create an ICS for I9000? ICS on Nexus S can perform perfectly good .

  24. haha,,,, I’m user galaxy s2, I’m very happy, come ICS, hahahaha,,,,

  25. is this Firmware is for Galaxy S2 also????

  26. I bought GSII but because of low quality audio chip, I sold it. I’ll be checking GSIII when it comes out for sure. Meanwhile, dear Samsung, PLEASE give us pure Google ICS :-) Thanx.

  27. @Md.tahir Nooo! This is only for SGS1 (I9000)! Don’t even try to flash an SGS1 ROM on a SGS2!

  28. how about battery consumption? is it (i9000xxjvu) more safe?
    Please answer…..!!!! that is critical for me…
    you know….

  29. Tryin downloading this awesome xxjvu(that what i’ve heard),
    slow downloading here, seem like forever, any mirror please guys.. damn,,,,

  30. Been using it for the last 3-4 hrs. I must say this is the fastest build I have ever seen. Quardrant scores upto 1800 on stock XXJVU ROM. :)

    The battery life also seems to be very good. Thanks Samsung.

  31. Porting ICS from NS to GS is easier than they do this lib port! Fuck you SAMSUNG! i9000 will be last SAMSUNG phone I bought!

  32. Great rom! Thanks Samsung!^_^~

  33. If anybody wants to have a look a detailed guide visit dialandroid

  34. Any videos of this new ROM?

  35. never ever Samsung machine!Fuck you Samsung!!!

  36. Changes:
    -Faster overall and this made me happy.
    -Face Unlock
    -Galaxy S2 Photo Editor
    -Galaxy Note Lockscreen
    -Camera is better and can also take picture while shooting video + Minor UI Change
    -Auto-Rotation is fast – Fast switching from portrait to landscape
    -FPS is a bit higher on 3D. But still not better than froyo.
    -IO performance is better. Amazing.
    -Quadrant first run: 1425
    -Second run: 1643
    -Browser is simply smoother.
    -But 2 FPS on speed reading HTML5 test WTF? Something must be wrong with HTML5!
    -182+1 Points on
    -Avaible ram is 320mb.
    -Notification bar turn back speed is faster and smoother.
    -Gallery3D is faster and smoother.
    -Task manager kills more app(not sure).
    -Nenamark looks much smoother than JW1.

  37. I agree with @kova4a, where there is no device that can perform like this (same date of released June 2010). Hey guys… If you really want the ICS, get it from onecosmic or teamhacksung on XDA, this ROM was nearing perfection of ICS. I love SGS I9000…

  38. The wifi keeps disconnecting after every minute for a second and connects back again.

    Can anyone monitor the wifi and confirm?

    Same was the case with JVT and even 2.3.5

    2.3.3 JV9 was good..

  39. can i update my galaxy s 9003 with it?

  40. Please send me some link, how I can root my galaxy S after installing I9000XXJVU.Thanx.

  41. hello pls how do i update d new firmware 2.3.6 xxjvu?

  42. Nice Samsung… how about finally getting the rest of the US Galaxy S’s (I897, I997, T959) onto freakin’ officially released Gingerbread

  43. this rom has greek language in menu and greek keyboard?

  44. Home come this firmware is described as 2.3.5 when it is based on 2.3.6? Is this really an improvement on the November Open Europe firmware?

  45. hi there
    how can i download this program
    i need the link ?

  46. This works on gt-i9000m with froyo 2.2??

  47. What an ugly guy :P

  48. can i flash this firmware for indian galaxy s

  49. Downloaded I9000XXJVU_I9000OXAJVU_OXA. It doesn’t have the .pit file. The rar file only contains the other 3 files


    Is it corrupt?

  50. Apparently, you only need the Pit file if you are flashing from non-official roms.

    Information from:

    Downloader/Flasher: Odin v1.7
    Pit file: S1_512.Pit

    There is a link on this website

  51. Ok, thanks. Downloaded the pit file, flashed. All seems to work but my data connection is not showing up:

    I go to Settings->Wireless and network->Mobile Networks
    Use packet data = on
    Data roaming = on

    I get no 3G icon on top of screen and when accessing internet services like Android market get an error “no connection”

    Anyone knows a solution?

  52. Hi, you need to setup your APN network.

    go to settings > wireless and network > mobile networks > Access point APN and creat your network APN .

    Hope this help.

  70. Hi, I am very new to this. I have the Galaxy S GT 19000

  71. Hi, I am very new to this and not that savvy with the technical side of things (lol).
    I have the Galaxy S GT 19000 on O2 contract. I am constantly checking for updates on Kies, but it states that none are available, although I see that most others have upgraded their firmware? Mine is still 2.3.3 :-((
    Also when I go to software update on the phone, it still tells me that there is no other update. If I update through other means, and something goes wrong, am I not invalidating my warranty with the phone? I have 1 more year with this one left on my contract with O2. Any advice will be gratefully received as I am getting fed up with the current firmware.

  72. would be nice to see a proper update for galaxy s i9000. I tried to find some but all of them having bugs…
