  1. Thanks Gautam for sharing this with us.  I had updated to JVS just yesterday and installed all the lost apps. I would like to install JVT but is there a way to do this without losing apps or system settings please.

  2. You can use Titanium backup to backup all urn installed apps, but you need to root your device to be able to use it!
    For SMS you can use SMS backup/restore.
    Both apps can be found on Android market and are free.

  9. No Devnagri support! You will have to stick with DDJV6 2.3.3 if you need Devnagari support!
    The instructions for installing DDJV6 can be found here.

  14. gautam may i know what is the difference between rooting and lagfix

    ReplyDelete
  15. Rooting will give you superuser access, similar to administrator on a windows machine.
    Lagfix means you will no longer experience any lag on your device, in technical terms lagix will convert all your partitions to ext4. By default all partitions on your Samsung device are RFS, which tends be lag a bit over time. With EXT4 you will not face such slowness on your device, hence it is called lagfix.

  16. I updated from xxjvs to xxjvt and wow, the battery drain was unreal, I could almost see it deplete. I was very happy with xxjvs, fast, no lags and good battery life, so I decided to revert bac,k until some of the xxjvt issues are sorted out. Not so easy do, I flashed 2.3.5 xxjvs, every thing worked as normal, but when I went to check version it was still xxjvt.

    I then flashed 2.3.4 xxjvr, worked fine, correct version installed. I then flashed xxjvs, all worked ok, odin passed, again checked version and it was xxjvt even tough I flashed xxjvs.

    Had to repeat above, 5 times to get xxjvs back on. Anybody know why ??.

    ReplyDelete
  17. That is strange! I'm not facing any battery drain with XXJVT, its similar to XXJVS if not better IMO. Did u install any custom kernel?

  18. Why do not tick re-partition? i have 3 files..

    ReplyDelete
  19. We do not need to re-partition using .512 pit as all firmwares use the same pit and the device is already formatted using .512, if you have flashed a rom be4 with a diff pit then you need to tick re-partition so that it will be re-formatted as per .512pit.

  20. I have a problem with Android OS I use so much CPU, what to do?

    ReplyDelete
  21. From what I understand you mean to say that CPU is being used e1 when the device is not being used.
    The solution for this is to kill all the apps that are running in the background, you can download Task Killer from Android Market and use it to kill all the apps that keep running in the background.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I tried but nothing ... I deleted all applications to see if doing so,  thanks for response.
    What task killer you recommend of andoid market

    ReplyDelete
  23. I use Android Assistant from market, it is a free app.
    You can try it see if it helps!

  25. hello bro... i did flash 2.3.5 and its working good but i can't update flash player at market.certain game also cannot be download.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Check wheather you have set the apn values correctly for t-mobile internet? Let me know if your problem gets resolved by doing so.

    ReplyDelete
  27. can you tell me which one  is the most stable version of firmware 2.2.1,  2.3.3,  2.3.4,  2.3.5, and there's 2 CSC  files on 2.3.5, and do i have to check re-partition. when i flashed first time i checked repartition (512 pit).

    ReplyDelete
  28. 2.3.5 is the most stable version IMO. You need to select the CSC which is smaller in size around 9MB the name of the CSC file is GT-I9000-CSC-HOME-MULTI-OXAJVT.tar.md5
    If you have already partitioned with .512 pit then u need not re-partition.

    ReplyDelete
  29. After installing this version, I am facing problems with my blue tooth headset. It stops functioning intermittently. Shows connected in the notification bar, but paired in Settings. Does not allow reconnection. Only a reset solves the problem.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

  30. I haven't tested the bluetooth headset with this version, it may be a bug in the firmware. There is a update available for Galaxy S XXJVT, may be the issue is fixed in this version, you can install XXJVT from here.

    May be others using this firmware can help you with this. Let me know if you find the solution for the same.

    ReplyDelete
  31. i found some video with jvt and read on forums and they all said that we need to check re-partition even if we had 512pit. is that true

    ReplyDelete
  32. I dont think u need to re-partition as pit makes no diff. ticking re-partition or not ticking will not make ne diff. I prefer not to its up to you. I have flashed multiple firmwares rite from 2.1 to 2.3.5 in the same way and it works like a charm for me n others who have followed my guide as well.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks Gautam,

    I will try it out in the next couple of days & revert.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi Gautam,

    I checked; I have the same version installed.

    ReplyDelete
  35. hey, sorry abt that I thought u were on a diff version! I don't have a bluetooth headset currently to test if there is any issues with the firmware.
    I request others who are currently using thsi firmware to try the bluetooth headset and comment if its working fine or not..
    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks for this info.

    Some questions:
    - Is this the latest version available (as of 2011-12-17)?
    - Can I flash this without factory resettting and losing everything? (Currently on XXJVR)
