Install Android 3.0 Honeycomb On Samung Galaxy S I9000

Samsung-Galaxy-S-HoneycombWe have confirmation of Android 3.0 Honeycomb being ported to the Galaxy S I9000. Better late then never we guess. The ROM has been made possible by the K&C Team at XDA-Developers with support from Codewrorkx, Coolya and Byapass23. More on the ROM and how you can install it on your device, after the break.

The ROM, like most other Honeycomb ports out there, is not suitable as a daily driver. Most features are missing with only a few features functioning.

  • You can send and receive texts but calls cannot be made or received.
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Data connectivity are not working.
  • No Audio output.
  • GPS, Internal SD and Hardware Acceleration is functioning.

The installation procedure is a breeze considering the task at hand.

Instructions:

  1. To begin, download the ROM from the link above and copy it to the root of your SD card.
  2. Once done, reboot into recovery by pressing the Volume down, Home and Power buttons together, letting go of the power button when the boot screen appears.
  3. Make a nandroid backup by navigating to backup/restore > backup.
  4. Navigate to wipe factory/data reset and select it.
  5. Do the same for wipe cache and wipe dalvick cache.
  6. Select install zip from sdcard > choose zip from sdcard > GalaxyComb.zip.
  7. Once the ROM is flashed, simply reboot the device.

That was it! You should now boot into the Honeycomb OS. For updates and queries, visit the forum thread at XDA-Developers.

  4. Hi
    i wana install android 3.0 in my galaxy s i9000 plz some one tell me how i can install it in my samsung galaxy s plz help me

    • You can, but as i mentioned before, you will have to revert to a Froyo based ROM for that. That done, you’ll be good to go. Hope this helps you all.

  5. •A Froyo based ROM installed. This is crucial otherwise you WILL softbrick your phone.

    can you please explain this part?… what sort of rom?.. etc… :/

    • That is because i missed out on a crucial detail that is, “you need to be based on a Froyo firmware to flash this ROM”. My sincerest apologies Vineet.
      Were you able to recover the phone or is it still messed up?
