Upgrading Samsung Galaxy 3 I5801 to 2.2 Froyo

You can now update your Samsung I5801 Galaxy Apollo(Samsung Galaxy 3) to the latest Froyo 2.2 (ZHJPF).
ZHJPF is an Asian firmware and has build date of March 2011.
For updating Samsung Galaxy 3 I5801(Apollo) to latest version of Froyo 2.2 you need the following prerequisites:

  1. You need to have the Samsung drivers for your Samsung Galaxy 3 installed on the desktop. (To do so simply install Samsung Kies from Samsung's official website)
  2. Make sure you have charged your battery, 50% or higher is preferable. (To be on a safer side charge your mobile to 100%)
  3. Make sure you have download mode working. (Turn off your mobile by pressing the power button, once switched off press and hold "power button + menu button + vol down button" simultaneously
  4. The next important point is to download the I5810ZHJPF_Complete_Package.
Once you have all the things mentioned above you can now upgrade your Samsung Galaxy 3 to ZHJPF in a few minutes.
Kindly follow the instructions mentioned below:

Extract I5810ZHJPF_Complete_Package.rar file with the password "techgom.blogspot.com".
On extraction, you will find a folder named "I5810ZHJPF_Complete_Package" inside that folder there will be 1 folder("I5801ZFJPE") and 2 files("apollo_0531.ops", "I5800_Odin_Multi_Downloader_v4.252.exe").
  1. Enter Download Mode by pressing power button + menu button + vol down button simultaneously.
  2. Open ODIN and then plug in the USB cable.
  3. Ensure that you see something written in ID:COM after connecting your device.
  4. Click on OPS and choose the "apollo_0531.ops" file from the extracted folder.
  5. Click on BOOT and choose the "I5801ZFJPE-REV02-Bootloader-CL915488.tar.md5" file from the extracted folder.
  6. Click on PHONE and select the "APOLLO_FET_REV_00_phone" file from extracted folder.
  7. Click on PDA and select the "I5801ZFJPE-REV02-PDA-CL915488.tar.md5" file from extracted folder.
  8. Click on CSC and select the "I5801FETJPD-CSC-FET.tar.md5" file from extracted folder.(You should see something like this in odin)
  9. DO NOT tick Re-Partition.
  10. Check if both Auto Reboot, Protect OPS and Reset Time are ticked.(ticked by default)
  11. Press Start button.
  12. You will see the progress in both ODIN and your phone.
  13. Your phone will restart wait till you see PASS in ODIN
  14. You can now disconnect the USB cable from your phone and follow on screen instructions.

Congratulations! you have now successfully updated your Samsung Galaxy 3 I5810 (Apollo) to the latest 2.2 Froyo firmware(ZFJPF).

To set the default language to English you need to set the Locale to English(United Kingdom)

If you wish to revert back to 2.1 once you get the official update from Samsung, Check Downgrading Samsung Galaxy 3 I5810 to 2.1 (DDJGE-INDIA) to know more on this.

  1. hey Gautam,
    Just updated my Galaxy 3 to 2.2.
    Just wanted to know how to change the language? Its set to Chinese by default.
    Thanks.

    Sure, I'll post some pics which will help you set default language to English.
    If you have any other issues do let me know.

  4. Can we revert back to the original one after flashing using this method / Can we still use the official upgrade from Samsung after following this method???

    ReplyDelete
  5. @ArunB
    yes!! we can definitely go back to 2.1, but for that we first need to know from which FW you are upgrading and then flash it with the same!!
    In Android every firmware update is reversible!! :)
    Once you are back to the original firmware you can then get the official upgrade from Samsung!!
    Let me know if you have any other questions...

  6. @Gautam

    I really appreciate your quick response. Can you help me out with the process of reverting it?

    I am upgrading from 2.1, the one that came with my G3. How do I take backup and restore it?

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  7. @ArunB
    I'll provide you link for the 2.1 stock firmware if you want. Flashing that will revert your mobile back to 2.1.
    I'll post a tutorial to flash GS3 back to 2.1 soon.
    Mean while you can flash this 2.2 firmware.
    Let me know if you need the link.

    ReplyDelete
  8. @Gautam

    Thank you...

    Can I use the FW provided at samfirmware.com for flashing back to 2.1?

    Do I need to take backup of anything to revert back?

    Will flashing cause any problems like losing IMEI number, changing Mac code etc? If so, is there anyway to recover it?

    ReplyDelete
  9. @ArunB
    yes you can definitely use it!
    Just remember to follow the steps mentioned in this post.
    Nope.. flashing wont change your IMEI number or any other details of your phone.
    Flashing is completely safe as long as you follow the instructions.

  21. Live Wallpapers isn't working. Can you help me with this one too?

    ReplyDelete
  22. @ArunB
    Live wallpapers is not supported by Galaxy 3!!
    It was neither present in 2.1 nor is it present in 2.2 :(
    The processor n ram are the culprit here..

    Oops... I found one way of getting it done.

  28. hey gautam thanks for the info. I updated to froyo using this guide and rooted my i5801. Do you know how to get rid of the preinstalled chinese apps?

    I tried some root uninstallers but i couldnt uninstall them. also how to update to the official froyo whenever samsung releases it?

    ReplyDelete
  29. @ArunB
    I have not rooted my Galaxy 3.
    So the pre-installed apps are still there.

    For getting the official froyo you can simply install the 2.1 rom on this.
    Once you do that u'll get the update from Kies.

    ReplyDelete
  30. @ArunB
    Strange problem with your Voice Search.
    Ensure that you are connected to internet via 2G/3G/Wi-Fi be4 trying voice search.
    Voice search only seems to work when you are connected to internet. :)

  31. @Anonymous
    I am able to uninstall all the Chinese apps using the root uninstaller.

    @Gautam
    Can you provide me the 2.1 FW? I have downloaded the fw from samfirmware.com, and it doesn't have the files required for Odin.

    sure!! I'll give u link to 2.1 FW.
    are you facing ne problems with 2.2???
    I suggest you to use 2.2 only!!
    Much faster n smoother.
    Battery back up has also increased marginally..

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Gautam

    Applications are crashing very frequently...

    But overall, my phone gained some speed after upgrading.

    Actually I have hell lot of problems with battery backup. Hope this upgrade solves them.

    ReplyDelete
  35. after restarting the phone a couple of times i could uninstall those chinese apps. Also as of now i have not faced any problems with this 2.2 version.

    @arun -- i read somewhere that you have to do a factory reset once you flash 2.2 on g3. this might sole your problems

    @gautam - does flashing 2.1 rom mean that use the procedure mentioned here and use odin to flash the 2.1 firmware (downloaded from samfirmware)?

  39. @Gautam

    Thanks for 2.1 instructions.

    We may have to go back to 2.1, just to install the official upgrade. :)

    When I face the problem again, I will make a note of it and let you know.

    Another question... Will we ever get Gingerbird on SG3??? (Even custom ROM, I don't expect it from Samsung anyway)

    ReplyDelete
  40. @ArunB
    ur rite.. There will not be an official update for sure.. :(
    custom roms possible in future.. but I don't think any devs are working on it as of now.. :(
    Will let you know as n when I find out more.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. @gautam
    nah... i dont want to go back to 2.1... everything working good as of now on 2.2... just wanted to know the procedure in case i face problems later on...

    maybe i wont even revert back to 2.1 for official update.... instead i will prefer flashing the official update whenever its released(if thats possible)...

    thanks guys for your inputs...

    -RN

    ReplyDelete
  42. @Anonymous
    Yup!! That is possible..
    Just flash the Indian 2.2 rom as n when it comes on top of this 2.2

    As it is upgrading via Kies is very painful IMO..

  43. Not able open "Download Mode"...After I hold "power button + menu button + vol down button" simultaneously...I get 4 options:1.reboot system now.2.apply sdcard update.zip.3.wipe data/factory reset.4.wipe cache partition!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Subash
    You are pressing the volume up button instead of volume down..
    The menu that you are able to see is the recovery menu..

    Kindly press volume down + menu button + power button to enter download mode..

    ReplyDelete
  49. @Jal
    Its strange!! No one else is facing this problem..
    You can try the following things:
    1. Have u tried restarting your phone if not, try doing that and then open your browser

    2. If that didn't help then you can turn off your mobile then, press power button + volume up button + menu button simultaneously, this will take you to the recovery menu..

    2.1 In recovery menu, you can use your volume keys to navigate up/down & menu key to select a particular option
    2.2 You need to select the option "wipe data/factory", this will reset all data from your phone though..
    2.3 Then reboot the phone by selecting "reboot system now" from menu

    Note:If none of the above mentioned steps work then you need to reflash the firmware..

    This could be the result of a bad flash..

    You just need to flash 2.1 and then upgrade via Kies to 2.2 Froyo - India via Kies.

  83. okkkk tel me how to 2.2 from kies

    ReplyDelete
  84. @Nikhil
    You need to downgrade to 2.1 DDJP6 which is the original firmware for Galaxy 3 in India.
    Only when u do that you will get the update via Kies.

    Updating via Kies is very simple. Simply connect your phone to PC n start Kies.
    Kies will prompt you for a new software update.
    Just follow the on screen instructions and you will have 2.2 Official version on your Galaxy 3 :)

  91. i noticed that although you have stated in this guide that we are installing ZHJPF which is the latest, the download link above contains ZFJPE. JPE was compiled in feb 2011 and JPF in march 2011. so using this guide i have JPE now.. can you confirm this please?

    ReplyDelete
  92. @Anonymous
    Thanks for pointing that out!
    I understand you you are saying, the ZFJPE firmware size is 118.2Mb and that of ZFJPF is 118.3Mb.
    IMO ZFJPF has the same baseband as that of JPE but something must have changed or enhanced.

    I'll try to find out more info on this and get back to you..

  93. Because of this thread I upgraded to Chinese Android image 2.2 to my phone. Then I found some issues and disgusting logo, app there. So I downgraded to Android India 2.1 flash image.

    As I am obsessed with 2.2, I liked to get 2.2. Using Samsung Kies (it has recent Android firmware upgrade for India as Gautam stated) I am upgraded with 2.2 Android India version

    Thanks for make me playing on Android upgrade openly

  95. hi gautam
    do you know the firmware version of the official indian froyo update?
    I dont want to downgrade to 2.1 just for the indian update.... is their any chance that we can flash the indian update directly from the chinese version if its available for download?

    ReplyDelete
  96. @Anonymous
    The official froyo update for India is DDJP2.
    This firmware is not available to download as of now.
    But it will be available in some time.

    My suggestion is if you are not having issues with ZHJPF then better wait till the ODIN firmware is available and then flash that firmware over existing 2.2(ZHJPF).

    I'll update once the firmware is available to download as of now Kies is the only way to update to 2.2 Froyo(DDJP2-India).

    I have never used Videocon ever in my lyf!
    I will be the wrong person to answer that question..
    But I guess you can manually configure your settings and should be able to use it..

    Also if you have a laptop then you can use your mobile as portable hotspot and using Wi-Fi on ur laptop access your mobile's net without connecting the device to the laptop via USB!

    This feature is called Mobile AP and is present in 2.2+ Android OS.

    i updated to the official froyo after downgradng from the chinese version and swype is no longer working...

    i get this error - the Swype package you installed is configured for another device and will work with limited functionality. please contact swype about this issue.

    swype was working fine on the chinese 2.2.. are you experiencing this problem?

    I don't get this error msg, but my swype doesn't work.. :(

    ZHJPF is much better than the official DDJP2 Indian update..

    Let me know if you find ne other issues with DDJP2..

  110. even i didnt get that error message at first....
    this is how i got the error message...
    got to messaging>>new message
    changed input method to samsung keypad
    then changed the input method to swype
    then i tried to type the first word using skype and i got that error...

    you can try and check whether you get that message..

    btw you on JP2 or JPF?

  111. @Anonymous
    I'm currently on DDJP2 but planning to install ZHJPF again..
    I find it much more smoother and faster than DDJP2, also Swype doesn't work on DDJP2. :(

    DDJP2 doesn't seems more like a beta rom or half finished rom which Samsung has pushed without through testing.. :(

  112. yeah rite...even i am planning to flash JPF again...it was much stable and better than the indian firmware...

    btw have you tried any custom ROM for ur phone?....some ROMs are really great and help g3 work up its true potential...The ROM on the following link is very good as said by the comments...

    I have not flashed custom ROM till now..
    This rom looks pretty gud..
    Quadrant score is 200 more than stock rom..
    Will give it a try soon..

    I'll still use DDJP2 for a few days!!
    Will let you know if I flash back to ZHJPF!!

  115. hey gautam.
    can I use this same guide for flashing to ZHJPF from DDJP2?? or do I need to follow any different steps as I am flashing from a froyo firmware to another froyo firmware.
    or do i need to flash the 2.1 DDJG6 firmware first and then flash to JPF using this guide.

    I am facing some problems with the DDJP2 firmware. swype is not working and I am geting some crackling noises when listening to music in the music player if i touch the screen while playing music. ZHJPF was working without any of these problems.

    I want to flash back to ZHJPF and stick to it permanently. please reply if possible. thanks...

    ReplyDelete
  116. @Rigved
    No need to flash 2.1, You can directly follow the steps here to flash ZHJPF 2.2.

    DDJP2 seems to have some issues!!
    Swype is not working because there are no language packs installed on DDJP2.
    I'm unaware about the music player issue.

    Let me know if u face ne issues while installing ZHJPF..

    ReplyDelete
  117. @gautam.
    the music player problem is completetly random.. i get some mild crackling noise intermittently when i unlock the lock screen, lock the screen(by pressing power key) etc while listening to music...
    its a minor problem and maybe thats why many might not notice it... but it has become too annoying for me...

    i dont think samsung will be issuing any future updates or bugfixes anymore for the i5800/5801..
    i will try flashing JPF when i get time...will report back...thanks..

    ReplyDelete
  118. @Rigved
    Yep! Samsung wont be issuing any fixes for the DDJP2 any time sooner.

    I'm sure ZHJPF is a better choice at the moment..

    i downloaded the DDJP2 firmware from samfirwares but it contains only one tar file and no PDA, BOOT, CSC files. how do i flash to DDJP2 firmware using odin without those files?? also is the ops file the same for i5801 for all firmwares?

    i found a guide here. is this the way to do it?
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=873645

    do you know the difference between flashing using boot,pda,csc files and flashing by using one package?

    ReplyDelete
  120. @Rigved
    There is not much of a difference!
    You can follow my steps for downgrading 2.1 DDJG6 here, which is also a one file firmware to flash 2.2 DDJP2 which you have downloaded..

    But if you are already on 2.2 ZHJPF then you need to first downgrade to 2.1 before flashing to 2.2 DDJP2.

    Let me know if you have any questions..

    ReplyDelete
  121. yeah i flashed to JPF but i found that the crackling noise in music player is present in JPF too...never noticed it before... also in JPF, camera has no option to turn off shutter sound.... the option to turn off shutter sound is present in JP2...

    and some guys on xda-developers have posted the method to get swype working on JP2..

    so if i get this correctly, from JPF i will have to downgrade to 2.1 and then update from 2.1 to 2.2 via kies or flash JP2 from 2.1 rite?
    .... thanks

    ReplyDelete
  122. @Rigved
    Gr8! Can you provide link for getting Swype working??? Other ppl can make use of it as well..

    Yup! You can either upgrade via Kies or flash using ODIN.

    ODIN method is faster IMO..

    Let me know how the entire process goes..

  127. Hi,
    I am using Samsung Galaxy 3 I5801 and I upgraded the s/w to Froyo 2.2 recently.
    Problem here is - though I am terminating the application from Task Manager and

    Advanced Task Killer (downloaded from Market), applications are restarting themselves,

    by which battery consumption is so more. Battery is dried very quickly.

    Note: I have used Advanced Task Killer on first version of android and it is worked

    fine.

    Thanks in advance.

    It'll start download in my phone, once it reaches 100% it'll disappear. Nothing will happen at all. But it'll shown as "Installed" in my device market.

    But actually will not be installed or available to use.

  154. @Prashant
    Turn off your phone!
    Then press volume up + menu button + power button simultaneously!
    Once you see something on screen release the buttons.
    Now there will be a menu the second option will be to wipe data and cache. You need to navigate to that using volume down button.
    to select that option press menu button.
    Once you press menu button, it will ask you to confirm your choice and you need to navigate to yes and press menu button now simply reboot your phone!!

    NOTE: You will lose all installed applications, contacts, messages etc on your phone.
    Kindly take a backup of all necessary things be4 proceeding..

    Let me know if you still have questions...
