I have a Galaxy i9000 currently on Darkys ROM, but I want to go back to stock ROM.

Im on vodafone NZ if it helps?

Before I moved to Darkys ROM, it said this :

Firmware: 2.2
Baseband Version: i9000SRJP2
Kernel: 2.6.32.9
root@SE-S604#9
Build Number: FROYO.SRJP3

I see no New Zealand firmware download - only Europe, Asia, Australia and a few others but not New Zealand. Under Europe theres one that says i9000xxJP2.

But Im not sure if the xx is meant to be xx or if it was to something else depending on where you are.

Does anyone know where I could get the firmware and go back to its original state? 

Sorry if someone asked this - I tried searching but it keeps coming with error...

Thank you

Are you not liking Darky's ROM? He's just released 9.5 and by all accounts it's super quick. Or are you trying to go back to stock so you can sell?

You can flash a firmware via ODIN from Samfirmwares. JPY should do the trick.

I was wondering if there is anyway to go back to stock firmware before root/custom rom on my Galaxy S i9000T. I am currently on Telecom NZ and wanting to go back to the stock Telecom firmware (which was 2.1) as I am having trouble with reception, which I believe is a hardware fault. Loses signal at least twice daily. Only fix is restart the phone. Tried different modems but still same problem.

So I would like to send it in for repairs, but obviously they would not take a phone with custom firmware on it.

I tried to make nandroid backup of the stock firmware before trying to install a custom ROM for this very reason but it failed and bricked my phone. Had to go from stock>custom as that was the only way to fix it.

Is there anyway for me to grab someone else nandroid backup of the stock firmware and apply it to my phone or is that impossible?

Might end up selling it if I can't get it fixed it. Very very annoying problem.

I am getting a new one, but my mother doesnt like the Darky's ROM so she wants me to put it back. Not sure why she doesnt like it coz its great! :D

But JPY, is that new zealands official 2.2 release?

Coz someone told me to download xxJP3 and then I can change the xx later into SR...so now Im confused... :/ hehe - still so new with all this android business, only got mine 2 weeks ago :P

Hey Im sorry but as you can see, im a total noob too...i looked up bricked nandroid and i got a link that says you can still flash it etc...am I allowed to post links? lol

But apparently by reflashing its possible? and I was asking around too, and Im trying to get help from a guy at my school which apparently I can use any JP3 firmware and then change the xxJP3 into SRJP3...so idk if its the same thing, so hope someone can answer us :)

Hey Defragger,

I've been looking out for a stock Telecom firmware for a while now just as a backup and I did find this which you may have seen - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=851043 It is stock Telecom 2.2 (DOJP2) which some people used to be able to get officially through Kies or with a reg hack. It is a zip with 3 files flashable only with Odin. The picture on the xda post doesn't look stock because that's showing the mod you can download underneath. I don't know or can't guarantee anything but if your desperate it's worth a shot and you can always flash back to Doc's or whatever. Note: This is Telecom not Vodafone stock firmware.

Hope this helps

You are an absolute legend bro! For some reason during my research had not come across that before. I will definitely have a look at this over my uni break.

Only call me that when your phone's fixed :), I haven't tried it and don't need to but people on the thread say it has the "XT!world" browser icon and "Your Telecom" with the Telecom splash screen which sums up a Telecom 'customized' firmware. So best of luck, keep me updated
