How To: Use Odin To Upgrade Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000 To Froyo

Samsung’s flagship handset, the brilliant Galaxy S GT-I9000, has been on the unlucky end when it came down to receiving the official Froyo update, something that has been promised again and again, and delayed likewise. A couple of weeks back users in the Nordic region were lucky enough to see official Froyo updates through their Kies software. At the same time Samsung announced that the Froyo rollout will be complete to all users everywhere by the end of November. Recently European users and those in the United Kingdom have also seen the ‘frozen yogurt’ trickling through Kies, with two firmware variants, XWJPA and XXJPO.

If you’re not in one of the above-mentioned regions, you’ll probably need to hold off the update. This guide aims to cover the process of flashing any firmware through the software Odin, using the latest I9000XXJPO Froyo firmware (official for UK) as reference point.

First, let’s look at the prerequisites. The approach to flashing a leaked Froyo firmware via Odin depends on quite a few factors, the foremost being the current firmware you’re on. If you’re coming from Éclair (Android 2.1), you can save yourself one step. Otherwise if you’re already on a leaked Froyo version, you’ll need to go back to Éclair and then flash Froyo.

IMPORTANT – MUST READ

Before you begin with the flashing process, make sure that you:

  • Do not have any lagfix applied
  • Phone battery is fully charged
  • SIM and microSD cards are removed
  • Phone is unlocked (no SIM lock present)
  • If you’re upgrading from an Éclair firmware, never restore any data backups

We strongly urge you to read through the whole guide first before attempting any of this.

Sticking to our reference firmware, here are the items that you need handy before attempting to upgrade your device.

  • I9000XXJPO Firmware  (can be downloaded here – courtesy of www.samfirmware.com)
  • I9000XWJM8 Firmware (needed only if you’re already using a leaked Froyo build – download here)
  • 512.PIT file (needed for XWJM8 firmware, download here)
  • 803.PIT file (for the XXJPO firmware – download here)
  • Odin Multi-downloader v1.3 (the actual flashing software – download here)
  • Samsung USB drivers (come with Samsung Kies software, make sure you have the latest version)
  • Samsung USB cable (or any other compatible USB cable)
  • One Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000

To begin with, download and extract all these files mentioned above to a convenient location, preferably on your desktop. The password for both firmware files is “samfirmware.com” (without the quotes). Once you have all the files in place, launch Odin as administrator. On your device end, make sure that you have disabled any lagfix, if applied earlier. Also, on the device end, make sure that there is no SIM lock present on your phone.

  • Power off your phone and remove the SIM card and microSD card.
  • Put your Galaxy S in download mode by pressing and holding the volume down, home and power keys at the same time. You will see a yellow symbol and the words ‘Downloading’ once the phone has gone into download mode.
  • Ensure that the drivers are installed. If you have Kies already installed on your machine, the drivers are already in place.

That’s about it, we’re ready to begin the flashing sequence.

STAGE 1 (applies only if you are coming from an earlier Froyo build)

  • We are now going to flash the XWJM8 firmware again (Éclair), so make sure that you load the files for this firmware in Odin.
  • In PIT, load the 502.PIT file
  • For PDA, select the ‘CODE_I9000XWJM8.tar.md5’ file and for PHONE, select the ‘MODEM_I9000XXJM4.tar.md5’ file. Leave all others blank.
  • Make sure that the Re-partition box is checked. All other settings should be as shown in the screenshot below.

Beginning


  • Connect your phone (in download mode) to your PC via the USB cable. It will install the drivers, or if they are already installed, you will see ‘Added’ in Odin’s message box (screenshot above). A COM port will also become visible.
  • Again make sure that all the selections in Odin’s interface are correct. Press the Start button when verified.
  • The flashing sequence will begin, and you will see several messages in Odin. Make sure that the phone does not disconnect during this time, as it may brick your device permanently.

In Process

  • At this point, your phone’s screen should be looking something like this:

DSCN0002

  • Once the flashing sequence has completed, Odin will give a ‘Completed’ message in the Message box, and a green PASS will appear on top. Your device will automatically reboot at this point.

Stage 1 complete

Congratulations! You have successfully completed stage one of the process, and now you’re running the XWJM8 Éclair firmware.

STAGE 2 (you can begin directly here if you are running an Éclair firmware and have flashed originally with 512.PIT)

  • Fire up Odin again and this time load the 803.PIT file in PIT.
  • In PDA, select the ‘JPO_JPO_U_JPP.tar’ file.
  • Leave all other settings as they are, and this time make sure that Re-Partition is NOT checked.
  • Put your phone in download mode again and connect it to PC via the USB cable.
  • Make sure that your selections in Odin match the ones in the screenshot below.

Stage 2 Begin

Once you’re sure that everything is correct, press the start button. The same process as earlier will follow – wait for it to complete, making sure that the phone remains connected during the whole time. Once the PASS message appears and the phone begins to reboot, you may remove the USB cable.

You will be greeted by Froyo’s lockscreen, customized by Samsung to their own flavor. Congratulations, you have successfully upgraded your Samsung Galaxy S to the latest (as of the time of writing) I9000XXJPO Froyo firmware!

Update: Samsung has released the latest XXJPU firmware for Galaxy S, which is Android version 2.2.1 and brings a lot of improvements over all the previous versions. You can download it here (courtesy of samfirmware.com – use samfirmware.com as password). Remember to use it with 512.PIT and Re-partition CHECKED.

  • RudeYute

    Does this work with those on branded firmware? I have Orange UK (Code: ORA) and will I have any problems with Swype etc?

    • Aatif

      That depends on whether your device is network locked or not. You can check that by entering *#7465625# in your phone’s dialer, and observing the status of the lock.

      On the other hand, I would generally advise against attempting this on a branded handset. While there SHOULD not be any issue as long as you have a GT-I9000 and not other variants like Vibrant, Captivate etc, since I have not tested this method myself, I would rather not endorse it.

  • Imran

    I have recently installed I9000XWJM2 (Eclair) firmaware with Kies and also use one click lag fix. Can I start upgrade my phone to Froyo from the 2nd step?

    • Aatif

      That depends on which PIT file you used to flash XWJM2. If it was 512.PIT, then you’re good to go. Otherwise it would be better to go through both the steps.

      P.S. make sure to disable OCLF before you proceed with the flashing, as this can cause some serious issues for your Galaxy S. In general, I would recommend Voodoo over OCLF. Even though OCLF is easier to use and implement, Voodoo is far more effective and safer.

      • Imran

        Thank you for your answer. I will disable OCLF and do factory reset and after do the both steps.

  • Rishabh

    Thanks alot!
    this really helped :)
    all went smooth , runnin windows 7 – 32bit

  • lebulbe

    hi,

    it didnt work for me. fortunately i did the first step and could get back to the eclair 2.1 firmware.

    after that i tried again and it did the same thing. stuck one minute on samsung boot screen then screen went black except for the two button and i get random vibrate from the phone ?

    anyone else had the same issue ?

    • Eeuw

      Hi,

      I have the same problem as lebulbe. odin finishes up nicely and when the phone reboots it shows the S logo and then turns black and starts vibrating each 2 seconds… help?

      • DanielR

        Exact same thing happened to me, however is fixed now :)

        Might of been luck, might have been something I did, hopefully will work for you:

        Enter recovery mode (Hold home, up + power)
        Wipe user data
        Reboot
        when it gets to the Galaxy S logo, repeatedly tap the power button

        This eventually led me to the initial set up screen.

        Either that fixed it, or my constant rebootin/take battery out/ boot again did it, either is working now :D

        • Aatif

          For all above who are facing the stuck at boot logo issue, did you have any lagfix installed previously? If you did, it can be a main reason for this issue. Reboot into recovery and wipe data/cache, or better, do a factory restore. Either way, restoring your file system back to rfs should resolve this issue.

          • Burak

            I did stage one correctly.
            stage two , i download i9000xxjpo file but when i open the rar file there is no .tar file.
            only :
            cache.rfs
            factoryfs.rfs
            modem.bin
            param.lfs
            zImage

            there is no .tar file

            help pls !

  • Eeuw

    I have a solution. You have to flash the STOCK ROM on your SGS. In my case it was the Eclair 2.1 JF3. From there you can install Clockwork mod and flash every ROM you want.

    Success!

  • DoughnutBoii

    Umm…actually I am one of the few unlucky ones for whom the key combos for recovery/download doesn’t work on the i9000 GT.

    So, how can i boot into “downloading” mode when key combos don’t work?

    And is “downloading” mode the same as “recovery”?

    Lastly, I live in the middle east. My device is rooted, unlocked and has OCLF (which I will remove before doing this). If i choose to upgrade this officially via KIES, then do I still need the download mode/uninstall OCLF???

    Thx for replies (if any) :)

    • Aatif

      A guide is coming shortly on fixing this issue :-)

      As for download and recovery modes, they are different. Download mode puts your phone is firmware update mode, while recovery is for modding (and recovering) existing firmware.

      Finally, if upgrading through Kies, you won’t be needing download and recovery modes, but you’ll have to wait till you can taste the ‘Frozen Yogurt’ flavor. :-)

    hi Aatif,

    I have an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S I9000 purchased here in Singapore.

    Here’s my phone details.

    PDA: I9000DXJG4
    PHONE: I9000DXJG4
    CSC: I9000OLBJG4
    Firmware version: 2.1-update1
    Build number: ECLAIR.DXJG4

    Basing on the above details, can i go ahead use odin to upgrade to froyo?
    Do i need to download this •I9000XXJPO firmware?
    What should be a specific process that i need to follow.

    I’m still waiting for the official download thru kies but it seems that its not yet available here in the Asian region.

    Please advice.
    thanks a lot in advance.

    • Aatif

      If you are not relying on some Asian languages, you can give this a try. Also, the newest firmware is now XXJPU, which is Android 2.2.1 and a LOT better than all the previous ones.

  • Jonathan

    Hi Aatif,

    Im from Malaysia, can i use this ODIN method to flash my device to Froyo? Please reply.
    Appreciate it.

    Jonathan

    • Aatif

      That depends on whether you have an international GT-I9000 or some other variant like Captivate, Vibrant etc. It works with only the GT-I9000, so if you have that device, you can use this method no matter where you are in the world.

  • Cole Mayes

    Hey Guys.

    No matter what I do, my Galaxy S i9000 (which is a genuine Samsung phone) using DXJG4 firmware, will NOT go into download mode by powering off, simultaneously holding down the Volume Down, Home and Power buttons. The phone will only turn on.

    I’ve tried the Android System Recovery mode by powering off, simultaneously holding down the Volume Up, Home and Power buttons, and again the phone will only turn on.

    I’ve tried using the AndroidSDK method with the phone connected to my WIn7 PC in USB Mass Storage mode, and it only returns “device not found” at the command prompt. If I use the other connection methods, PC Internet, Media Player and Kies, the AndroidSDK returns the same error.

    What am I missing to get my phone into these modes so I can flash my ROM?

    Thanks immensely for any help, guys!
    Cole

  • James

    Worked a treat on my T-Mobile branded Galaxy S. I had unlocked before this upgrade and so far so good, seems a lot quicker to boot, and gps works, woohoo, Cheers guys!

  • Tanka

    I already install android 2.2 foryo and i have I9000XJP2 foryo firmware. plz tell me that which is the latest firmware between I9000XXJP0 and I9000XXJP2 foryo firmware?

    • Aatif

      right now the latest firmware is XXJPU, give that a shot. I gave the download link in one of the comments above – you’ll love it!

  • ALSON

    Those this only work if your in Europe and in the United Kingdom? Im from Central America Honduras can I use this to update to Froyo?

    • Aatif

      Like I specified earlier, it is not region specific – only handset make specific. So even in the US if you have a GT-I9000 and not a Vibrant or Captivate or Fascinate, it would work for you.

  • David

    Hey I got up the odin started and got my phone into download mode

    I originally use mac but I got a pc to get my firmware upgraded to froyo 2.2 but now i’m trying to voodoo on another pc.

    Odin doesn’t seem to be able to recognise that the phone is connected

    what should I do!?!? I originally have the phone in debugging mode since i use a mac. does that make a difference??

    thanks

    • Aatif

      Make sure that you have all the required USB drivers installed (you can install Samsung Kies, it will automatically put all the required drivers on your PC). Odin should work fine after that

      It doesn’t make any difference if you have the phone in debugging mode, as when you enter the Download mode debugging turns itself off.

    STAGE 1 (applies only if you are coming from an earlier Froyo build)
    We are now going to flash the XWJM8 firmware AGAIN (Éclair),

    What does it mean? It is the first stage but don’t know why is AGAIN?
    I didn’t really get it. I’m using 2.1 factory installed version I9000XXJF3 which of the stages, first or second, do I need to go for?

    Thanks

    • Aatif

      You can begin with Stage 2, as you already have an Eclair ROM on your device, However, I would recommend using the newest XXJPU firmware that you can download here:

      http://www.multiupload.com/PUSOOBQ8K5

      make sure to use the 512.PIT file for this, not 803!

  • Rustam

    It only worked me when I tried third times selecting the CSC file where you say to leave blank. I tried twiece without selecting and it just freezed on the stage at Re Partition.

    Anyway I’m very happy with my flashing and it works very well so far, very fast.:)

  • Alberto

    For people without 3 combo option who are blocked with S logo and black screen there is a solution!!! You have to build a micro usb connector with a 301 kOhm resistence behind pins 4 – 5. Something like this http://img80.imageshack.us/i/20101119120802.jpg/ It worked for me.

    With the phone powered off (you have to remove battery to power off and reinsert again) connect the modified micro ubs. After 2 seconds it goes to download mode and now you can reflsh with Odin.

    Good luck!

    thankyou very much saved my phone when I bricked it using kies!

    Would you please explain why we use the 512 PIT file with XXJPU but why not the 803? What difference between them and do they all work with different firmwares

    i have a peculiar problem, i install a tmobile vibrant version to my phone instead of the original asian version(india to be specific), is there any site where i can get it to use it to odin? n after the successful recovery of the phone to eclair 2.1 my fone switch of automatically whenever i connect it to my pc via usb, why is this happening?

    Step 5: Navigate to this location “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Samsung\Kies\DeviceDB\”
    Step 6: Now you will see different folders named 1, 2, 3 etc. Open each folder and find that one folder which contains your mobile’s current firmware and IMEI information.
    Step 7: After locating the particular folder, change the following 3 strings as shown below:
    SoftwareRevision = I9000XXJPA/I9000SWC/I9000XXJPA/I9000XXJPA
    ProductCode = GT-I9000HKDXEE

    Hi
    I wanted to inquire about the problems i faced after upgrading my eclair to froyo through ODIN.
    Here are the problems ive been facing after upgrading my phones os from 2.1 to 2.2 through ODIN.
    1. Glitch in menu scrolling (rough..gets stuck and isint smooth like on 2.1 eclair)
    2. Samsung Keyboard capslock double click doesnt make it permanently capital but rather gets it back to typing small letters anew.
    3. Home screen doesnt auto-rotate.
    4. Alphabets on the right side of contacts, spread horizontally for ease of finding contacts, disappear once i try scrolling on it through my finger.
    5. Cant change shortcuts from the default launcher whereas could do so in 2.1 (Eclair)
    6. Default Email application doesnt load emails properly. Also when i click on an email to read it and it opens, i try zooming in through pinch technology but it is not at all smooth. Cant scroll emails side by side to read the whole email properly.
    And many more which i cant recollect.
    What should i do in order to get rid with these problems?
    Please respond as soon as possible.
    Thanks
    Vrinda.

    Your procedure sux. It killed my phone. I had the can’t mount \dev\block\stl11 error, solved by doing this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=11494840&postcount=29

    I wouldn’t RECOMMEND to anyone to apply this procedure.

    My question is, do I have to do the step 1 as well or I can start with the 2?
    Thank you in advance

    Will this procedure work if I want to downgrade from Froyo 2.2.1, back to 2.2?
    I know I would have to find the correct ROM’s but I’d like to know if I can just follow the above procedure to get my phone hopefully back into some kind of workable state.

    I upgraded to 2.2.1 and not one of my programs work properly. They either crash when launched or those that do work (well, the 6 that do), reset their settings whenever they are started.

    Firmware: 2.2.1
    Version: I9000XXJPY
    Build: FROYO.POJS4

    Thanks

    Hi all,
    I have tried to upgrade firmware of my i9000 from Froyo to Gingerbread but forgot that I had OCLF Lag Fix still installed (stupid, I know). Now my phone is in a permanent boot loop.

    Can I perform the procedure mentioned above, using Odin to make my phone work again?
    Does the procedure wipe all my data of the phone? (my back-up didn’t work because of an error report in Kies)

    If it does wipe all my data, is there a possibility to transfer the content of my internal sd card to an external card, while in recovery mode?

    Many thanks for any usefull tips!

    Best regards,
    Bart
