I have just updated my Clove UK-sourced Galaxy S to Gingerbread 2.3.3 using Kies.

Everything seems OK except for one major problem. When I boot the phone the Notification Bar is there at first but then I get a pop-up that says: "Sorry. The application Status Bar (process com.android.systemui) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." and there's a Force Close button.

The phone then is "OK" except no Notification Bar. Re-booting just gived the same result.

Any ideas on how to fix this because I can't practically use the phone like that.

I have an unbranded UK SGS and upgraded to 2.3.3 via Kies today. I too have exactly the same problem. I read on this forum (http://samsung-galaxy.aurona.org/firmware-upgrade-failed/) that someone performed a factory reset on his phone which fixed it. I haven't tried this yet (too much stuff to backup first), but I hope this works for both of us! Let me know if this works and I'll do the same, fingers crossed.

Eventually I tried a factory re-set and it did work so that's a relief but, as you say, it's also a bit of a PITA because of the backing-up/loss of apps etc.

I just find it bloody annoying that Samsung can put out an update that causes hassles.

Do you use Titanium Backup?

I've seen so many people with this problem on XDA with the answer being a factory reset so it is fairly common. You gotta expect a reset, it's a pretty big update but is a pain how an official update causes it. Enjoy GB!

lokhor: Do you use Titanium Backup?


Nope - have heard of it now that you mention it but did not think of it. The reset didn't cause any major hassles - just a bit of time. I didn't have much on the phone memory. I just had to re-download my paid-for apps from the Market and reload my copy of Co-Pilot.

It's sorted now except for CoPilot maps still downloading. As a relatively low-power user I can see some cosmetic differences in GB but it doesn't seem a hell of a lot different to Froyo. I believe copy and paste now work (or work better) but that's not something I would do very often. I'm probably regarded as a heretic for saying not much difference.

I can confirm the factory reset worked for me too. Shame to lose all my Angry Birds progress but great to have Gingerbread! It really does seem to make a huge difference to both speed/fluidity and battery life. Glad to have it, but as noted above it's a shame Samsung were unable to roll out an official ROM without issues.
