Its in the efs folder on the root directory of the device. You will need a file browser that does root access, like. Root explorer. I think sgs toolsalso has a option.

Read up on xda for mire info. Try the general forum under i9000.

I just aquired a used Galaxy S. It is already running Darky 10.1 but not with the newest kernel available.

I have a few questions about how this whole custom rom stuff works for the Galaxy S as it is quite different from what im used to on my HTC Hero :)

What is the purpose of installing the first stock rom (ie. ficeto) via. Odin? If im already running Darky 10.1, do i still need to first install a stock rom using Odin before flashing over a Darky 10.1 with the newest kernel? I am both able to enter download mode and to access recovery mode with the 3-button combos!

Thanks in advance :)

I believe that you need to flash the base rom (in your case ficeto) as it has the bootloaders necessary to run the custom rom.

Now you have 10.1 installed it should have come with darkys CWM so you can simply boot into recovery and flash the newest kernel (2.6) from there.

If you feel the urge to install JVP 2.3.4 (ficetos build) you can just flash over the top of 10.1 and not loose anything :)

im yet to do this as im waiting for it to get so stuff fixed on it, will probably flash it when 10.2 is released.

hope this helped you a bit? im still new myself :)

Hi there - I have just followed your instructions word for word and it is all good.  Thanks.  I did not do the last step yet.  I have a question.  Does it matter which modem i select for telecom xt network?  The last darky's rom i had did not give me very good reception at all.  Can you suggest a modem for me?  thanks

You will need to install a modem that its compatibles with the 850mhz that telecom uses. Check in the big samsung thread and ask what people are using there.

UGJL2 appears to be the best modem for use with XT. You can download from here
click "samsung" then "modem_850_enabled" There is a variety of modems here you can choose from. Download the one you want (UGJL2 recommended), extract and then flash the modem.bin file in odin.
Put it under the "phone" section and make sure repartition is not checked.

There is no "modem" field. There is PDA, PHONE, and CSC. The modem.bin file is flashed in the "PHONE" field.

This is in Odin3 v1.30 by the way, I'm not sure if 1.7 is different.
