Can anyone suggest a simple step by step method to update a Samsung Galaxy on telecom XT to Gingerbread.
I have updated to Froyo using Tony Hughes post using Odin which I found fairly straight forward & would be keen to take the next step but i'm lost with all this info re kernals, ROM,S. modem, etc etc
i guess all i want to know is the shortest & most reliable way
Many thanks Peter
read this to understand the basics of what youre asking
to upgrade to GB you will need to
1) use ODIN to flash a base GB rom that includes bootloaders, like this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=991792
2) flash a telecom XT compatible modem, either UGJL2 (older) or UGKC1 (newer), both have been tried, tested and proven to be very good with XT: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=876391
at this point youre done, running a plain vanilla gingerbread rom. if you then want to flash a CUSTOM GB rom, you can choose from any of the multitude of roms on the XDA forum here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=665
simple rule of thumb, if its on page 1 or 2 its being actively used and worked on - if its on page 3 or further, dont bother.
it seems the most recommended ones are Juwes Rom, Simply Honey, Darky's, etc. but i would get used to plain vanilla GB before you start farting around with custom kernels and whatnot
Sorry prolly a silly question but.....
I have a i9000gsmh - vodafone galaxy.
Its been rooted and busybox, superuser and CWM are installed
I want to use it on the XT network - so have used odin to reflash the phone (modem) to either UKGC1 and UGL2 - have then ensured cdma 850mhz band (v) is enabled with *#*#0011#*
However I get no service on the 850mhz band.
With the vodafone modem (srjv1) it gets service on the gsm900 band
Do I need to flash the actual PDA ROM as well? Just thought id ask the q before I do it - just a tad hesitant encase I cant get it back to stock
the voda version is 900/2100 3G. XT is an 850 3G network with 2100 in the main centres. No amount of flashing will get you 850 3G on your handset. Even selecting 850 as you've done above will make no difference at all.
