Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) Update for Galaxy S i9000 [Custom ROM]

Galaxy S i9000 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

While Samsung would take ages — if they intend to bring the update in first place, which itself is debatable — to release the latest Android 4.0 update to Galaxy S officially via Kies, our beloved developers have already started burning their midnight oil to get you Ice Cream Sandwich love on your very dear very venerable phone in android blogosphere, the Galaxy S.

And their hard work is showing up now in the form of a custom ROM — we’re talking about the first ICS (Android 4.0) port for Galaxy S, made by pretty famous now on Galaxy S development scene, Galnet.

Developers: Galnet was first one to boot ICS on Galaxy S but since then, he and his team has been quite on this. The development came to life only after Onecosmic started working on it and he is the one who took further, making it a bit usable and fixing the touchscreen and doing all the crazy part. After Onecosmic got busy with other stuff, work was resumed by PaulForde, who is responsible for current stage of rom, among with other devs who are working continuously on it right now.

Developers and Donation Link

Here is list to all devs who are currently active on this rom. And we hope you donate them to show your gratitude to them for work they have, while also encouraging them for working more on this development.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) ROM Status

Update (As of February 12, 2012): RC 4.2 is out — it’s simply one incredible rom, by certain awesome teams of devs.

Big Update: RC1 is out. Features working from this release: Video recording and playback, Hardware Acceleration, Calendar Sync, etc. You may want to celebrate this!! People avoiding the ICS — somehow, I mean — should try this version. Kudos to PaulForde (we’re really thankful to him for this) and Onecosmic.

Almost everything is working — though, of course, there are bugs!

COMPATIBILITY

[error]This guide is applicable only for Samsung’s Galaxy S international version — GT-i9000 and GT-i9000B. Check your phone’s version in Settings – About Phone. It has to be “GT-i9000” or “GT-i9000B” for this Android 4.0 port ROM to be compatible with your phone. Otherwise, simply don’t try this ROM on your android handset — don’t even think about it if you care about your android device.[/error]

WANRING!

Warning: Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We won�t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

Installing the Android 4.0 ICS custom ROM isn’t that hard if you’ve already done flashing stuff a couple of times. But even if you’re new to flashing and custom ROMs, don’t worry one bit, we’ve got you covered. Just watch the video below, read the instructions and you are good to do it yourself.

Pre-Installation thoughts:

  1. Installing/Flashing this ROM will erase your apps and data. So, it’s a very important you back them up, before proceeding further. To backup your apps and important data — bookmarks, contacts, SMS, APNs (internet settings), etc. Restore APN settings if Internet isn’t working for you. This Android backup guide would help you. And if you’ve rooted your Galaxy S, you can save application’s data too, using Titanium backup (free app on android market) to backup apps with data. And use this this app only  again to restore those apps with data.
  2. Drivers! — it’s important you’ve the proper drivers installed. Download links below:
  3. If you have Samsung’s PC software Kies installed, be sure to exit it before using flashing this ROM, or anything with odin software.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for Galaxy S

Update: The installation process is much different now that what was for the initial release. But you can still watch the video — especially if you’re new to this — to get the idea of flashing and stuff. And the guide below has been duly updated to take care of installation needs of the latest release. So, go ahead!

So, the video below is not to be followed, but if you want to learn about rebooting into recovery, using CWM recovery, and other things, watching the video for once is recommended.

Here’s the video showing the installation of Android 4.0 custom ROM (AOSP port, version alpha4):

Note: There is a brief overview (from 6:58) of Android 4.0 running on Galaxy S in the above video.

How to Install Ice Cream Sandwich on Galaxy S [step-by-step guide]:

  1. Flash XXJVU Android 2.3.6 based firmware first.
  2. Install CWM and Root on the XXJVU.
  3. Download the latest version of “Android 4.0 ROM” from here — let’s call it rom file — and then continue the steps below to flash it without any worries. be careful while downloading since that page has downloads for all version of Galaxy S for which this rom is available. Download one meant for your phone, i9000.
  4. Transfer the rom file to your phone’s sdcard (don’t use external sdcard, btw). Remember the location where you transfer this files.
  5. Power Off your Galaxy S. Wait for 5-6 seconds until you feel the vibration to confirm complete switch off.
  6. Boot into Recovery mode. Then, press and hold these 3 buttons together: VolumeUP+Home+Power till the Galaxy S logo shows up on screen. You’ll boot into CWM recovery soon enough. (In recovery, use Volume keys to scroll up and down and power key to select an option. Use back key to go back.)
  7. Do Wipe Data/Factory Reset
  8. Do Wipe Cache Partition
  9. Go to advanced and do Wipe Dalvik Cache
  10. Now, flash the rom file. Select install zip from sdcard » choose zip from sdcard » browse through sdcard and select the rom file you downloaded in step 3 and transferred in step 4 above. Select “Yes – Install ______” on the next screen.
  11. After flashing necessary stuff, phone will boot up into recovery again. You will notice it’s a different recovery, colored blue now, and this is what was flashed in step 10 above to make the phone ready for installation.
  12. Now, flash the rom file again. Select install zip from sdcard » choose zip from sdcard » browse through sdcard and select the rom file you downloaded in step 3 and transferred in step 4 above. Select “Yes – Install ______” on the next screen.
  13. Go back and select ‘reboot system now’ to restart the phone. Be patient while phone boots up, it may take between 5 to 15 mins  for first boot.
  14. IF IT FAILS TO BOOT in 15 mins, then, well we got problem here. Do this:
    1. When the phone is restarting (still booting up) open the back cover and REMOVE the battery. Yes you read it right. Reinsert it after 3-4 seconds and then boot into recovery again.
    2. In recovery, do a Wipe Data/ Factory Reset. And then, select reboot system now to restart the phone. it should boot up properly now. If it doesn’t, then perhaps you did not follow something correctly.
  15. Also, if you are not happy with the performance of this rom — maybe because it lacks some apps/features you cared too much for, or reboots itself — I would suggest you to install the Android 4.0 AOKP Rom for Galaxy S, it’s simply damn good.
  16. [Optional] Support the development and appreciate the hard work put in by the team by donating them. Find donation link given above.
  17. Also, it’s already rooted. You don’t need to root it.
  18. Just for your info, Android 4.0 custom ROM is available Galaxy S2 too — find our Installation Guide for Android 4.0 on Galaxy S2 i9100 here.
That’s it. You’ve the Android 4.0 running coolly on your Galaxy S buddy. Cheers to awesome dev team!

GOING BACK TO ANDROID 2.3 (Gingerbread) [IMPORTANT!!!]

Btw, if you want to revert back to Android 2.3 Gingerbread firmware from this Android 4.0 custom rom, get (install) the XXJVU firmware, linked in at step 1 above. And if wanted by you, root it as given in step 2.

  2. oh ? It doesnt work ? Can someone please confirm it works ??

    1. IT REALLY DOESNT, IM SAD. IVE BEEN TRYING THAT SINCE YESTERDAY NIGHT

    2. When the developers update this to new and more-usable version, we’ll update the link and all that. So, check back later. Ot would work fine, eventually — just have some patience.

  7. I can’t really see the point in featuring this until you can at least get past the lock screen… a complete waste of time IMHO!

    1. On Nexus S, it took just 4-5 days for a not-at-all working port to become a usable ROM. I can’t give you that deadline here, but I am hopeful we will have a working ROM pretty soon. Even if it takes a week or two, these developers will have a lot if respect from me.

      One should appreciate the fact that these devs have come with a port this soon.

      Anyway, don’t bother much and check again later, you’ll know the fun once some basic stuff starts to work.

      P.S. I am pretty much attached to Galaxy S dev. It’s still my fav phone although I use S2 now. You know, both CM7 and MIUI had this sort of beginning only. Those feeling bad abt it should atleast appreciate dev’s work, if they can’t donate at all.

  8. David is right, u cant do anything because of the lockscreen, u cant pass it !!! :/ will u do something 4 us to fix that?

  9. DO NOT TRY IT !!!!

  12. LttlDvl here, You can navigate the rom by using two fingers to select and drag.  you can also bypass the lockscreen by pressing back and then menu quickly.

    It’s been our plesure to port this and release it for other developers to work on as well.

    I’d just like to reiterate again: This port is NOT for daily use.  It is literally at the point we had it right after we had it booting.

    1. Hey there! Welcome to our blog, LttlDvl.

      I’m from the TheAndroidSoul team. We’re thankful to you, and Galnet, for the work you guys are doing.

      I hope you are able to get it this port working pretty soon, either before or after Galaxy Nexus hits and AOSP build of Android 4.0 is out.

      You’re Awesome!

      P.S. Would donate 20 bucks when I get home. Keep rocking, dear!

    2. Thank you!  Everyone is more than welcome for this, Galnet and I had alot of fun getting this to work.

      The main idea behind it was to get it booting to give the community a chance to learn how the system works.  We both understand that nobody is going to learn how the system definitively works from an SDK port, however all developers will gain some much needed experience from this, which should show when the first true data dumps and source compiled builds become available.  But things will hopefully move quite quickly from that point.

      It’s also allowing us to see how elements of ICS can benefit our MIUI development, so it’s all a case of watch this space!

      Hopefully though, the developement community can wring some sense out of this and have a more stable version some time soon to allow everyone to have an idea of what ICS can deliver.

    3. THANKS, BUT THE TOUCH IS REALLY DONT WORK WELL

  19. Awesome job Devs. To take a SDK and turn it into a proof-of-concept ROM is always impressive.

    Regarding the i897 (Captivate) 4.0 ROM, would it use a i9000 modified ROM, or would it likely be built from scratch? I ask since the captivate doesn’t seem to be too popular with the dev community, despite being the one of the prettiest Galaxy S (single-core) phones.

    1. Personally, I like Captivate’s design far more appealing than Galaxy S (and other variants). But as you said it, dev work is pretty limited there. In fact, no other device matches Galaxy S’ sort of development, not even the Galaxy S2.

      And I think Captivate will need sth built from scratch, which I think both Galaxy S i9000 and Captivate will get only after Google releases the Android 4.0 source code to public — possibly, after Galaxy Nexus is launched.

  25. Post updated. New version — Alpha4 — is available for download as also the new kernel. The phone’s got calls and sms working now, and also the WiFi. You have no reason to not try it once more — it’s so awesome, and fast, thanks to ‘HW acceleration’ that is now working on this port.

    Guys, go for it. you’re gonna love it.

    Dev team is doing amazing work. Cheers!

    1. I won’t try it until It’s stable, or at least, 3G and external SD are supported. Also, I had problems of bootloops with the Fugumod kernel T_T

    2. K… But it’s amazing, I’ll tell you that.

  29. So i can do this for my galaxy s2 and have the wifi to work now? i hope so

  30. WOW great tutorial thx

  31. can it work on all basebands of gt -i9000

    1. You need to have Android 2.3 based firmware/rom. I think one shouldn’t try it on Froyo, it must be requiring Gingerbread boot loaders. Basebands not a problem.

  38. hi can it work with xfjva – i9000 or xxjvt- i9000 pl reply & thank for this

    1. All you need is a clockworkmod recovery installed on any gingerbread rom onn galaxy S i9000. JVT is cool to go with, it would work.

  39. I tried as per instructions given above every thing goes fine . but my phone is stuck at FUGUMOD and not going further, please help.

    1. Retry one more time.

    2. Tried it twice, same thing happens, stops at first screen. everything seemed to go on ok, what have I missed?

    3. Try again.

      If it still happens, flash the ICS again and this time, reboot the phone before installing the Fugumod kernel. Touchscreen won’t work, but don’t bother. Simply go back to recovery and flash the fugumod kernel and then reboot — should work.

    5. yes its booting now with flashing kernel

    6. *without flashing kernel

    7. Go back to recovery and then flash the kernel, it would boot and run smoothly. Make sure you’ve downloaded the right kernel — one meant for your device since 2 or 3 variants are available.

    8. Yes, its booting! Great work thanks!

    thanks and keep up the excellent work devs………….

    1. Depends on you whether you wanna use ICS in daily life with some gr8 bugs. Read what works and what not in the post, and decide it yourself. You’re good to go, btw!

    2. I would suggest you to wait for Alpha7 which should be released anytime this week. It includes complete hardware acceleration along with working video and camera.

  45. is this stable enough for daily use now……curious…..thinkin of flashing it..

    I9000 xxjvq 2.3.4 gingerbread

    What is mneat by: “after a ugly patch ?”  
    which patch will make my mobile work ?

    1. It just means you have to go through a lot of steps and change a lot of settings to enable 3G 🙂

    2. I’ll update the post with a guide on how to apply 3g patch shortly. Btw, as suggested here, alpha 7 should be pretty good. Maybe, it will get RC1 tag, lol!

    3. hi kapil im just getting ready to flash everything can you update 3g patch part of the post please…much appreciated, ps does the the mobile ap tethering and the internet phone browser work

      thanks buddy

  50.  VERY GOOD, IM FROM ARGENTINA, I WANT TO TEST WHEN EVERYTHING ITS GOING ON, SORRY ABOUT MY ENGLISH… JEJ.. 

  51. looks wonderful! does this include all the loacle languages? Hebrew specifically?

  52. Hi there! Its working but i don’t have signal on the phone. Why?

    1. Which version you installed? Alpha7 or 6?

    2. Alpha 7. And one more question: The PC don’t want to recognize my phone, so i pluged in with a data cable and nothing.

    3. Ohh, and my phone network does not work too. I haven’t tried with Wi-Fi still, but i usually use my phones network.

    4. Don’t know how to fix it.

      Man, there will be some bugs here and there until it gets out of alpha, for sure. So, be prepared to deal with it. And maybe, try it again after it gets Release Candidate status, or a full release. If you can’t bear it right now, simply go back to Android 2.3. That’s sad but you gotta wait, man!

    5. Okay then. Well, thanks for your work, at least its great. 🙂

  53. Not working… It freezes at fugomod , i’ve done exactly what was written , step by step.. and nothing..

    1. Alpha 7 installed , reboot , install the kernel and it stops , freezes at boot …

    2. Retry. It happens!

    3. Now , it’s working but i dont have signal … wtf? 😐

  54. hi kapil i am getting ready to flash everthing, but without the 3g patch post i wont be able to do because i use my ap tethering as my home network,such if you could this asap…you will be a ledge,,,thanks in advance

  70. could it Work on Galaxy S 5830 ACE ?????????

    1. No. And your device isn’t Galaxy S or its variant. Galaxy Ace is a nice phone, but it’s another galaxy phone, man.

      Btw, CM7.2 is available for your phone, have you tried it?

  71. I can`t get service.. If i want to untick the option ”lock simcard” than it ask for pin code. It does not accept my pin code so i cant get service.. plzz help!

    1. hey…i have the same problem…i tried to unlock sim with my pin…but i can t…always says key is wrog bla bla…can somebody help us?…on my phone bluetooh works but sim car doesn t…and everything else is so fine…working without bugs and similar stuff….pls help me with sim problem as soon as you can…:S

  72. Hi
    thanks very much for your hard work. I have followed the instructions (coming from latest MIUI) and am stuck at the GALAXY S screen with the FuguMod logo after the second installation having wiped cache and reset/data wiped. How long should it take to boot the phone after this and before going back to CWM to install kernel…?Thanks

    Hamish

    1. Don’t worry. Reboot to recovery, do factory reset, do wipe cache partition, and then flash the kernel again. Then, reboot.

    2. Hey,
      fast reply, I know lots of people have asked the same questions, so thanks for taking the time. I did it all again but did one thing different: wipe dalvik cache in Advanced, that made the difference and I am now into the big colourful X boot animation…. we will see what happens next…
      Hamish

    3. UPDATE:
      Well, I got it going and for a while it was good. I know that it is an Alpha and so on that basis, it is great. I even had bluetooth working and sent a file to another phone. However, about 15 hours in everything started force closing, this included all the core google apps such as Market.
      Not sure why that was, I was trying to install Paradise Island at the time. 
      Despite this it was a lovely insight into what it will be like when a decently stable beta build comes, or even, lets hope, a Stable build or, hope against hope, Samsung  release an update for SGS i9000…. yeah, I know, never gonna happen.
      Thanks for your work.
      Hamish

Anyone can help me please?

    1. when the complete action screen comes on just tick the box default and click the first one…if the other setup does not work just goes through all the steps i put below again it does not take long to do,but for this to be a day to day rom, i would wait for a beta if i was you buddy

      2. Sorry paul, did all you wrote down there, but my touchscreen still won’t recognize my finger. As i need to use my phone i will revert back to 2.3.4 for this weekend, hoping our dear developers can help me and anyone else with this problem.

        1. alex did the complete action screen flicker and wouldn’t let you press anything??

          1. Nope, not even the touch-sensitive won’t light up.

  98. not able to go forward after galaxy s fugumod logo………………

    1. I just pulled out the battery, powered on the phone, waited a little on the same screen than nearly 4 mins on a beautiful nexus animation. If you succced, please let me know if your touchscreen is working 🙂 

  99. installed alpha 8.

    im stuck at colorful screen ( after Galaxy S fugumod screen)
    it took 10 minutes.
    still continue 

    1. OK. i try alpha 7 and it done

    2. Have the same problem.
      Did you resolve this?

  100. Flashing Alpha8 now… I shall update the progress 🙂

    1. Trying alpha7 now

  103. I’m stuck for 10 minutes now at the animation with the four-coloured X. Removing battery didn’t help. Wat do?

    1. Same here… 

    2. Damn…and I already went through all the trouble of resetting to standard 2.3.4, rerooting and reinstalling ICS because I thought I’d bricked the phone. Back to playing Skyrim until alpha 9 is released I guess…

    3. how did you manage to enter recovery mode? am currently stuck not being able to enter recovery mode using the VolUp/Home/Power combo

  104. Icecream seems to be very far…

  105. 謝謝 我成功了

    1. ICS sucks. It doesn’t even include a file manager that lets you access the external SD card. The face recognition is only for fun. The rest is just as Gingerbread. I’m almost sure they changed GB just because it looks a lot like Apple OS.

  106. installed alpha 8.

    im stuck at colorful screen ( after Galaxy S fugumod screen)
    it took 10 minutes.
    still continue

  108. finally on ICS.
    1. Flashed JVS
    2. Rooted JVS
    3. Flashed MIUI 1.11.25 from CWM
    4. Flashed ICS version of CM7 from CWM.
    5. Installed google apps pack.

    Working like a charm. Phone works, 3G works.

    1. Please speak open.

      JVS? MIUI 1.11.25?
      CM7?
      Installed google apps pack?

    2. I followed below procedure,
      1. Installed I9000XXJVS on my i9000 from the links in this post.
      2. Rooted JVS with CF-Root-XX_OXA_JVS-v4.1-CWM3RFS
      3. Boot to CWM Recovery and perform Wipe data & Wipe cache
      4. Install zip file from SD card and select miuiandroid_I9000-1.11.25.zip (http://miuiandroid.com/roms/miui-development-roms/) and reboot the system.
      5. Boot to CWM Recovery again and Install zip file from SD card and select teamhacksung_galaxysmtd-ota-eng.BUILD1.zip (supposed to be CM9) .Link for procedure and downloading files (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?s=71e99d084cae4c9ef00291d370eb8a62&t=1363593) and reboot the system
      6. Boot to CWM recovery again and flash gapps.zip by selecting Install zip file from SD card.
      Thats it. I’m able to boot to ICS. Phone, 3G, Exchange & Gmail works. Widgets, clock and other applications work though… As this is not final ROM, there might be lot of bugs and check the CM7 website/forum for more details.
      I’m not sure if Point4 is necessary, but this is how it worked for me. I flashed my phone around 10 times with Alpha7 & Alpha8 versions and finally it worked after following above procedure.

    3. I have posted this post with the links for the files to be downloaded. I’m waiting for moderator to approve the post. You can search forum.xdadevelopers for these files and check.

  149. Does this touch the modem firmware, or does it leave my pre-existing one intact?
    I’m on a i9000M which typically uses the international firmwares with the exception of the modem.

    1. I think it would change the modem. Before trying this, make sure you have a firmware for your i9000M so that you can go back to stock easily.

      And, you can try flashing the modem separately via Odin (only modem file, nothing else) on ICS rom and see if that works.

  154. for some reason beta1 wont install, starts to install then comes up error in zip

    1. I’ll update the post within 3 hrs or so. Check back later.

    1. but video recorder doesnt work 

  157. Hello everybody involved, thanks for creating ROM ics for galaxy s. Really appreciate that.

    After some troubles I managed to flash beta1 several hours ago. All things work just fine except phone (modem) service itself. Phone is absolutely without GSM or data connectivity. Like there is not SIM card inside. If I go to settings – security – set up SIM card lock – lock SIM card -> enter correct PIN (vedrified using another phone) getting error message.

    If I go to mobile network settings – Network operators – Search networks -> getting error message too.

    If I try to call some number directly -> getting error message that airplane mode is turn on (but in fact it is turned off).

    Any suggestion or idea what could be wrong?

    Thanks in advance

    1. After I followed published install procedure for beta 1, phone seems to work OK running ics right now.

    2. Enabling 3G was not necessary it has been working fine just from moment I flashed beta1

  160. And if phone is turned off and you connect a charger, phone is automatically turned on. Simply phone cannot be charged when is turned off

  163. hey guys if you’re having problems like i was, i’ve found a simple way to resolve this firstly flash alpha 7 ice cream zip procedure and then put it into reboot mode and then flash beta ice cream zip and kernal and update zip and you will then be running on beta 1

    1. Thanks for airing your thoughts (and method). Btw, I’ve updated the guide, and using CM7, it does seems to work.

      Anyway, I’ll try your method too 😀

      See ya!

  164. Installed, turned on phone. Galaxy logo showed up for a while and everything gone black. Still trying to wait 10 mins. 

    1. Remove battery, go to recovery mode and flash the ics beta 1 rom again. Don’t flash kernel, though, this time. And reboot.

    2. I found that installing rom (full wipe), install kernel (full wipe), remove sim card and plug into charger (not PC) seemed to work. Not sure why or how 

    3. That’s on cool — and weird — way to install ICS you unearthed, man!

  165. I am trying to update my galaxy s i9000 to ICS but while im flashing the Beta rom im getting an error: “error in sdcard update.zip: status 7” can somehelp help me with this?

    1. You’re using clockworkmod recovery, right?

    2. at first u must install kernel from zip card and then when are founts blue color, u can install ics file

  166. Installed beta1 but it seems to be stuck at the andriod logo. any thoughts?

    1. just reflashed the kernel to get mine up and running, its working great, didnt even have to do the 3g mod, worked straight away o2-uk. great work guys

  167. Hello everybody involved, thanks for creating ROM ics for galaxy s. Really appreciate that.

    After some troubles I managed to flash beta1 several hours ago. All things work just fine except phone (modem) service itself. Phone is absolutely without GSM or data connectivity. Like there is not SIM card inside. If I go to settings – security – set up SIM card lock – lock SIM card -> enter correct PIN (vedrified using another phone) getting error message.

    If I go to mobile network settings – Network operators – Search networks -> getting error message too.

    If I try to call some number directly -> getting error message that airplane mode is turn on (but in fact it is turned off).

    Any suggestion or idea what could be wrong?

    Thanks in advance

    1. After I followed published install procedure for beta 1, phone seems to work OK running ics right now.

    2. Enabling 3G was not necessary it has been working fine just from moment I flashed beta1

  169. And if phone is turned off and you connect a charger, phone is automatically turned on. Simply phone cannot be charged when is turned off

  171. Tried installing ICS Beta1. I install the kernal, removed battery and then installed ICS but when I reboot it just goes directly back into the recovery. 

    1. I have the exact same problem! i found it weird that i had to flash the kernel twice, is that correct? I flashed the rom many times now, but it keeps booting back into recovery mode. any thoughts?

    2. Ok. Try this.

      After you’ve flashed CM7, reboot phone. Then, reboot to recovery and flash kernel. Now, remove battery, put it back and reboot to recovery. Flash ics rom and reboot phone. Hope iy reboots fine.
      And, check in about phone, whether the fugu kernel is listed there or not.

    3. Just tried your suggestion, still loops into recovery. Stupid question this is an Australia Galaxy S I believe classed as the i9000t would this be the reason why it isn’t working?

    4. I’m not sure either 🙁

  172. hey guys if you’re having problems like i was, i’ve found a simple way to resolve this firstly flash alpha 7 ice cream zip procedure and then put it into reboot mode and then flash beta ice cream zip and kernal and update zip and you will then be running on beta 1

    1. Thanks for airing your thoughts (and method). Btw, I’ve updated the guide, and using CM7, it does seems to work.

      Anyway, I’ll try your method too 😀

      See ya!

  174. I am trying to update my galaxy s i9000 to ICS but while im flashing the Beta rom im getting an error: “error in sdcard update.zip: status 7” can somehelp help me with this?

    1. You’re using clockworkmod recovery, right?

    2. at first u must install kernel from zip card and then when are founts blue color, u can install ics file

  175. Installed, turned on phone. Galaxy logo showed up for a while and everything gone black. Still trying to wait 10 mins. 

    1. Remove battery, go to recovery mode and flash the ics beta 1 rom again. Don’t flash kernel, though, this time. And reboot.

      1. I found that installing rom (full wipe), install kernel (full wipe), remove sim card and plug into charger (not PC) seemed to work. Not sure why or how 

        1. That’s on cool — and weird — way to install ICS you unearthed, man!

  182. hmm i didn’t flash CM7, i know it was recommended but i had darky custom rom installed. Can i just flash CM7 from recovery, or should i use Odin?

    1. Please follow instructions above. Begin from step 1.

    2. I think I have done the same as you, I had Darkyrom and also didnt flash CM7 originally. I would be interested to see if you can now get it working. Can I ask which country are you in? 

    3. I tried the steps many times now, but no good.. i am now wondering how to get the CM7.zip on my device. I doens’t seem to work when i connect it to the pc when i am in ‘download mode’. I think download mode is only used with ODIN right? any idea if it’s possible to flash CM7 from exernal SD?

    4. i am from The Netherlands.. i have the GTi9000, i am trying to get the CM7.zip on my phone, but don’t know how to.

    5. There is a separate guide on installing CM7, and I’ve linked that too in tthe guide above. Use that guide to get CM7 working, and then continue to next step.

    6. Ok, I am getting closer. I now get the red, blue, yellow and green logo when booting into ICS, but it just stays there (have waited 10mins) I have tried removing battery, re-installing ICS and kernel.

    7. Good. If it still doesn’t boot, go back to recovery and just flash the ice again. And then reboot – DO NOT flash kernel again and do not do factory reset or wipe cache or anything.

      Good luck!

    8. Thanks, any suggestions if re-flashing ICS doesn’t work? I have tried about 4 times now! am going to leave phone on that screen overnight and see what has happened by morning haha

    9. Aww.. that’s too bad. Lets wait for beta 2.

    10. the exact same thing is happening to me at this very moment, im not sure what to do because i didnt install the cm7 thingo. what should i do?

    11. mine now says encrytion unsuccessful, what should i do?

  183. Guys read my last post i’m on darky jvt too…follow the steps I wrote and it works everytime 😀

  184. Kapil I know it takes alot of time and effort to develop but would you know roughly when beta 2 will become available…living the work and dedication it takes btw

    1. look at download section, beta2 file is up till one or so 🙂

    2. paul, these betas are coming out like wildfire tbh. Like seriously, beta1 was released yesterday, alpha8 was released the day before, and like alpha7 was released the day or two before that.

      Has anyone noticed with beta2 that the density has changed. Things appear smaller or are my eyes going tits up?

    3. recognized that too, things are really smaller, i like it, its compact and looks more gentle 🙂

  185. What is the problem with not having encryption? my email is [email protected]

  186. i managed to fix my phone and flash the beta succesfully! it’s awesome 🙂 feels snappy and stable for a beta release. I flashed the darky 10.2 resurrection edition via ODIN and after that i flashed CM7 stable. From the CM7 ROM i installed the CWM and then succesfully flashed the kernel and beta ROM. Jippie!

  189. Beta battery drain and overheating…. So, last night I installed the beta, looked good, all worked fine.
    This morning after charging all night it was at 100% charge. I unplugged it and within an hour was down to 80% batter. After another hour it was 60% and getting very hot. I panicked and began to download the latest MIUI, which made it get even hotter. I then ditched ICS again and reinstalled MIUI 1.11.25 phew.
    Nice as it was to see ICS working better with the beta it was too risky. Is the Kernel overclocked? Anyone else having this problem?
    Thanks
    Hamish

    1. I had brutal battery life with the CWM9 ICS port, but when I switched to this one the battery life has been significantly better. Checkign right now, I’m at 25% remaining charge, at 22 hrs on battery. I barely got 4 hours on the other one.

  190. Theres a problem …when i want to download something at the android markrt…it sais that my phone is not compatible….so i cant download something like the facebook app…but i can download fes file manager for abdroid 1.6…anny solutions¿?????
    Btw looks awesome=D

  191. is it normal that when I start it ip I see like an X during te start up with microsoft colors?

    1. I also had this funky X-animation but skipped some important steps, got a funny “Encryption unsuccessful” message and a dead touchscreen. Tried and failed to get into recovery or download mode and am now the lucky owner of a bricked phone. Have now ordered some USB-dongle that should allow me to access download mode and flash again to something useful…

      Thank god I don’t really need this device and hope you will be more lucky…

    2. Yes, Microsoft colors they are. Google used it in Nexus logo (the X you’re seeing) and btw, if you noticed, same colors are in use Chrome browser icon. Pretty weird, but it look good, no doubt.

    3. same as me!! 

    4. Even i got same error. After 3 to 4 Reset i got home screen but No Network:(

  192. beta1 is spot on for me, not had any issues yet. no freezes no application crashes.

    everything seems to work, bar video.

  193. if you guys stuck with ‘X’ logo, reboot your phone into recovery mode and ‘wipe data/factory reset’ only.
    i did it and it works

  225. hi guys
    you did great great work
    one thing i want to know
    is there way to add languages ? for example arabic ?

  226. i successfully installed the android 4.0 beta 1. But i have the problem in getting the phone signal to make calls. when i restart my phone it is automatically going to airplane mode. and i am unable to make the calls. Can someone help me in fixing this please.

    1. getting same ProBlem..!! 🙁

  227. Done it! Installed Beta 2 successfully :). I’m so happy. Christmas-> try to convince my parents to lend me some money to donate :).

    1. are you getting the phone signal for making the calls?

    2. Yes, I do( I can sen text messages and make/answer calls), thought I can’t test the 3G because I have no mobile data on my carrier contract. 

  228. i was able to get the 4.0 update done, but after when the phone rebooted i wasnt getting any network, though i remember pretty well that the sim wasnt locked.

  235. Done it! Installed Beta 2 successfully :). I’m so happy. Christmas-> try to convince my parents to lend me some money to donate :).

    1. are you getting the phone signal for making the calls?

      1. Yes, I do( I can sen text messages and make/answer calls), thought I can’t test the 3G because I have no mobile data on my carrier contract.

  239. How do i get back my contactlist ?

    1. You can only get it back if u Backed them Up on SD card, if you have them on SIM card or if you synced them with G-account. To sync them to your device, just connect to the internet(3G/WiFi) and add a the google account where all your contacts are synced. If you had the contacts only on your phone internal memory, you lost them forever(sorry).

  240. Same problem here. After updating to 4.0 Beta 2 No Network. but the first boot was taking so long time so i restarted forcefully, then i got a message saying “Phone Encryption error you may loss your data” then ter was only option to Reset. after 3 to four time reset i got home screen but No Netowrk. 🙁 Help Please.

    1. even i am facing same problem…….. it directly goes to airplane mode……i degraded to 2.3.5 and upgraded to 4.0 b2, i do get the signal in 2.3.5 but i dont get the signal in 4.0 beta 2.
      some one help please…

    2. Try finding your proper modem and flashing it.

  245. Installed Beta2, and the display resolution seems to be different than it was in Beta1 (?)

    The icons are a little bit smaller for starters. It is even more noticeable in a game like Parallel Kingdom.

    The last strange bit is that when you pull down the status bar, under the carrier name at the bottom is that little blue circle. Mine is no longer centered, but is off to the right a little bit.

    Doesn’t affect much, but is a bit odd.

    1. Yea ive the same problem with beta2… if it becomes to annying just flash back to Beta1…

    Someone help.

    1. Check step no. 20 above.

    2. Yea i downloaden it, but how can i put the file on my phone if my phone dont connect with the computer..

    3. I did connected my phone with wifi, and i downloaded whatsapp and it says “Whatsapp can’t find the right identificationcode for your device, please shut down your phone and remove the battery, and put it back and try again” but i keep getting the same problem..

      Sorry for my english, hope you understand

    4. If you can’t get your phone to connect while in ICS, boot into the recovery rom. There is an option there under “mount” to mount as a USB device. You can then transfer files to and from the computer while in that menu.

    5. Thanks it worked!!
