Update Galaxy S to Android 2.3.6 — SC02BOMKL1 Firmware. NTT Docomo Galaxy S Only!

Lets first be clear on this — this is not for your Galaxy S unless, you got it from NTT Docomo (Japan). If yours is not Docomo’s Galaxy S, flashing it will only result in FAIL (in red!) so I would suggest all international Galaxy S users to simple ignore this for now. FYI, SC02B is the code name of Galaxy S at NTT Docomo in Japan, and OMKL1 is the firmware name here.

And those who got one from NTT Docomo in Japan, go ahead and enjoy the Android 2.3.6.

Since I couldn’t install it too, being a international galaxy s phone user, let us know what changes you see in this build, except for obvious addition in the Android OS version.

Installation: Download the SC02BOMKL1 firmware (password: sampro.pl) and flash it using Odin3 v1.7. [Select the extracted .tar file in PDA tab and keep Re-Partition checkbox clear.]

Let us know what improvements you see.

As for non-Docomo users, I think Android 2.3.6 update for you too is on the horizon. Though, I think you’re not that eager for this — partly because you know nothing exciting will be there and mainly because we already got Android 4.0 custom ROM to play with. So, lets hope Samsung’s team leaks/releases an Android 4.0 update soon enough to make things peppy.
