Seems like my signal issues are back again, after they got fixed last time by Telecom. Keep losing service, at least once a day. Phone usually needs to be rebooted, although I found a trick by going into the service menu using *#2263# and just changing bands until it comes back.

I am honestly sick and tired of this phone now. Been screwing up for me since day one. I think it may be time to move on.

Jump over to the HTC Sensation :) no signal issues here, way stronger signal than the SGS too.

surely the best upgrade would be to the SGSII?

EDIT: wait are you saying "SGS TWO" or "SGS, too"?

if you mean the Sensation has stronger signal than the SGSII, how did you test that out??

Don't Worry. It works now. I have no idea why it didn't before.

Just done the Froyo to Gingerbread upgrade using Darky v10.2 Resurrection installer. Simple upgrade.

I flashed the UGKG3 Modem across as well.

I noticed a few weeks ago that my phone was locking onto 2100 towers, so I used the 'secret' code to lock it onto the 850 band. Had to do this on this install as well.

A bit of a pain not being able to bring the data along with the apps when doing an upgrade..however the reliability of a clean up install is preferred.

Anything else to do now? Any Kernel upgrades or the like?

The GPS lock is insanely quick with UGKG3. Reception indoors is not a problem.

nzgman: has any one who put there phone to the Telecom unofficial 2.2 build managed to get there phone onto the official 2.3.3 build? and if so how?
I need to get mine to the Telecom 2.3.3 official build tonight and still have not figured out how :-(


Have finally found the files and got it all sorted :-)
you can get the files from using Check Fus and then install them with Odin

Check fus info - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=834884

enter the following into the pc based check fus http://www.nanzen.se/download.php?id=9


product Code - GT-I9000TDOJV4
PDA: I9000TDOJV4
PHONE: I9000TDOJV4
CSC: I9000OTTNZJV3


Download the file then enter it into the "PDA" section in ODIN and flash to phone.


"No firmware info retrieved for given data."

Found GT-I9000HKTTNZ under GT-I9000T, flashed that but now says something about failing to mount /dbdata

Came from Darky 10.2.

Not sure whats going on, guess I'll go back to Darkys for now.


sorry got some codes wrong, should be

product Code - GT-I9000HKTTNZ
PDA: I9000TDOJV4
PHONE: I9000TDOJV4
CSC: I9000OTTNZJV3




i have a 9000T that I have mistakenly I think upgraded to the JVB firmware. Now Swype does not work. Although everything else does well.

Can you tell me how to download the  GT-I9000HKTTNZ package. I am having a great deal of trouble figuring out how you did it.


Thanks

Baseband Version I9000UGJL2
Kernel Version 2.6.35.7- I9000XWJVB - CL118186 Root@DELL102 #2

Build Number GINGERBREAD. XWJVB

nope - best battery life will be on 2.2.1 Froyo, which will improve again dramatically with a custom Kernel.
