If you have any questions please feel free to ask!!


  1. Thanks Gautam. I was just waiting for you to publish this and before I upgrade, any known improvements with this version?

  2. Battery backup has improved a lot! Over all speed as well has also improved.
    This update still doesn't have GTalk with video/audio support :(

  3. After upgrading with XXJVS, can we install once the software is available from KIES?

  4. When the official Kies update is available you will have to downgrade to the old official Gingerbread firmware to receive the update. You can also install the update directly(without downgrading) via Odin once the firmware is available!

  5. Hi Gautam! is this version rooted...

  6. This is the stock Samsung firmware, not root, no CWM!

  7. It quite worked but why is it very laggy on the start up?

  8. Is there any bugs found when upgrade through through ODIN?

    updated version of flash 10.3 also available through this process?

    How music files runs after upgrading through ODIN?

  9. Upgrading through ODIN is 100% bug free, infact its better than upgrading through Kies as you get a clean fresh start!
    I have installed adobe flash player 11, the exact version is!
    Music n video player work just fine. I haven't encountered any bugs as of now.

  10. I've a question about my 3G internet browsing?
    Cause i can't use it and the bar in top of the screen isn't showing it either?
    So what do i have to do?
