Cool Android 4.0 (ICS) Update for Galaxy S i9000 [Custom ROM]


Quote:
Compatibility
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.

Warning
The methods and procedures discussed here are considered risky and you should not attempt anything if you don’t know completely what it is. If any damage occurs to you or your device, we won’t be held liable — you only will be responsible, you’ve been warned!!!
So Lets Get Started-
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 Downloads - ice-cream-sandwich-sgs - Android Ice Cream Sandwich for Galaxy S and Variants - Google Project Hosting— 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

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.
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.
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.
10.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.
IF IT FAILS TO BOOT in 15 mins, then, well we got problem here. Do this:
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.
11.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.
[Optional] Support the development and appreciate the hard work put in by the team by donating them. Find donation link given above.
Also, it’s already rooted. You don’t need to root it.
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.

Ok Maybe this is just a random theory of mine, or just random stupidity, but please follow along here. This is an idea of mine that came from how the HTC Dream and the HTC Sapphire could basically use the same roms, basically because the two phones where so close in spec details.

Ill put the phone specs below.
