Thumbs up Upgrade Android 2.1 (Eclair) to 2.2 (Froyo) on your Samsung GT I5800 in 7 EASY steps!

Here's an easy and in-depth way to upgrade your Samsung Galaxy I5800L, running 2.1 Eclair to Froyo 2.2. Sadly at this time Samsung hasn't officially made Froyo available for the I5800, but luckily we can do it ourselves!

No rooting needed.

What you will need:Get the ODIN & OPS file Here

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU BACKUP YOUR PHONE'S DATA, CONTACTS, ETC.
To backup your phone information if you encounter problems when doing this upgrade:
KIES Software(comes with your phone). Or you can download it from Samsung's website here.
(If you Encountered major problems and need to downgrade back to Eclair Here's how)

Ensure your battery is fully charge.
Now, factory reset your phone: *#*#7780#*#*
Or go into Settings>Privacy>Factory Data Reset.

Here's a helpful tip/step that most other tutorials don't tell you.
Remove your SIM and SD(if you have one) card from the phone. This may save you some complications.
It will avoid any hangups or stalls, like I've experienced, almost leaving me helpless.


Right, now let's get to actually installing Froyo.

First check your firmware *#1234#, write it down, store it on you computer, in case you need to restore later.

Load up "ODIN Multi-Downloader" (I5800_Odin_Multi_Downloader_v4.252.exe). If you're on Win7, a popup "IMAGE PATH [chinese writing]" keeps opening. It's annoying, but it shouldn't do anything to your install. Just keep clicking OK.

1. Select "One Package", "Auto Reboot", "Protect OPS" alone. (again Win7 users, ignore the annoying popup)

2. Select the OPS file you downloaded. Click the "OPS" button. Select file "apollo_0531.ops".

3. Now go to the bottom option "Select Integrate Package..." and select the 2.2 Froyo (.tar) file your downloaded. It should be one file.
With the "One Package" button, select your .tar file.



4. Here's the tricky part, that's not so tricky. Switch off your phone (hold the power button "Power OFF"). Remove the battery, so it doesn't boot up automatically. Then hold the "Home + Volume Up + Power" buttons simultaneously.
Until the screen shows the android icon with probably the "Force Upload by Button Pressing" words.
(If those combination buttons don't work, try "Volume Down" or "Volume Up + Down" instead).



5. When the "Force Upload" screen appears, like the image above, connect your phone to the computer with the USB cable provided and let windows detect the drivers for the phone and install them automatically.

6. Once the drivers are loaded, and the phone is detected by ODIN as shown, click start. The phone will load data from the ODIN application you supplied and reboot itself, until you see the Home Screen load successfully. It takes a while(5-8mins), but way shorter than say loading a Windows OS.
Do not uplug the device until you see the Home Screen and have successfully unlocked the phone.

Note.
If you phone hangs, or stalls, you should resort another 2.2 firmware, or downgrade.


7. Enjoy your semi-new phone! It feels new and refreshing to have an updated firmware for your phone. Especially since it's free!

Here are some Key new Features in Froyo
  • Colorful menu/settings interface.
  • You can Install apps to the SD CARD (most, not all).
  • And the ability to play FLASH content Natively (websites, flash native games, online videos etc.).
  • General Performance boost in processor, supposedly Better Battery life and Ram management.

I'm pretty sure even if you flash this version you can still get the updated version come april. You'd have to reinstall the original firmware, which you can find on samfirmware.com

I recommend waiting for Samsung to officially release it.
You can run into unwanted problems, if you're unfamiliar with the procedure. And I think Updating it from Samsung is far easier.
Let's hope they really officially launch it!

OK, I used the above procedure successfully upgrading from I5800XWJG6 to I5800XXJK1 (this is still Eclair) and it worked.

However, what I did, before flashing the .tar file, I installed 7zip. Then opened the .tar file with 7zip and removed boot.bin and sbl.bin from the tar file. I read this on:
[READ FIRST] Roll-up Thread about Rooting and Flashing - xda-developers

For upgrade to Froyo ... hmm ... I am a little bit scared to brick the phone ;-)

So, at the end, I decided to upgrade to Froyo. following the same procedure: I took out boot.bin and Sbl.bin from the .tar file and then flashed.

Phone started ... and worked. To my surprise, everything was was working OK: wifi, bluetooth, sms, calling, gps, ... I checked our all my apps and all were working (except a proprietary app from phone provider Proximus in Belgium which crashed on a Java exception).

I played with it for 2 hrs or so and then it suddenly froze completely. No keys, no screen and logcat no longer moving (I kept it connected to the PC with the logcat on to see what it was doing).

Took the battery out, restarted and all was OK again ... for 2 hrs or so. Then it completely froze again with same symptoms.

So, finally I decided to downgrade to Eclair again (XXJK1). I will just wait for the official Samsung release.

That was my experience with Froyo so far on the phone.

Unhappy

Just tried this on a Vodafone NZ GT I5800. Sadly this didn't provide 3g (or any) data connection except wifi. Everything else works great though!

Edit: I'm a noob. Didn't set the apn settings. Fixed now.
THIS IS FANTASTIC!

Hi! I am completely new and still need to learn everything.

I have followed step-by-step this procedure, but I seem not to have the "2.2 Froyo (.tar)"-file??? How and where do you download this from?

I do have two .rar-files: (I5800XXJPF.rar and I5800XXJPB.rar). Need i to use these instead? And how do I need to configure it in the I5800_Odin_Multi_Downloader.

I hope my question makes sense and somebody can give me a response?

thanks a lot in advance!

jbeyz,

You need to extract the .rar file you have downloaded (I use 'Free RAR Extract frog' or 'IzArc'). The extraction process should automatically creat a folder 'I5800XXJPF' or 'I5800XXJPB' or similar, etc) Within that folder you will will find the .tar file (it won't be called Froyo, it will be called I5800XXJPF.tar etc).

At stage 3 in the instructions put in the correct path to the .tar file.

Then complete the rest of the procedure.

Hope that helps.

Hello bjlabuk,

thanks for your reply!
I have been able to extract the .rar-files.
- I5800XXJPB.rar resulted perfectly in a folder containing the .tar file
- I5800XXJPF.rar however resulted in a folder containing 4 files of format .tar.md5 --> not sure what to do?

So, I tried my luck using I5800XXJPB.tar (assuming it is not the very latest version and JBF is the most recent version?).

Now I ran into a new problem:
when I tried to run the "I5800_Odin_Multi_Downloader_v4.252.exe", it did not find my phone (although Windows & Kies do find my phone).

Not sure how to proceed now?

I would be most greatful if somebody can help me further?

thanks a lot in advance!

Johan,

Ignore the JPF version and use the JPB version as there is only the one '.tar' file in the folder.

Follow the following instructions:

Before these steps make sure you have latest version of kies installed, it helps in keeping latest drivers installed.

1) BEFORE connecting your phone to the USB port of your PC, START ODIN (if using Windows 7 or Vista right click the ODIN.exe file and click 'run as administrator')
2) Check "One Package" checkbox
3) Check “Reboot” checkbox
4) Check "protect ops" checkbox (Don’t check this if you are flashing I5801 with I5800 firmware for the first time.)
5) Check "reset time" checkbox, keep the default value as it is i.e. 300 don’t select any other options.
6) Hit "reset files" button once.
7) Click OPS button and select the OPS file for I5800.
8) Click 'one package' and select the '.tar' you want to flash. The file must a .tar file.

9) You are about to connect your phone to the PC . If you want to take a backup of your data/apps then do this now. For that you can use Titanium Backup.
For backing up contacts and SMS.
A) go to contacts press menu/left most button select import/export option,
then export the contacts to sdcard.
B) For SMS use the app called SMS backup.

10) Switch off your phone and REMOVE your sdcard and sim card. Then switch on your phone and wait for the Home screen to appear. Now do a factory reset/ Hard Reset which should clear the cache. To Hard Reset your phone go to the keypad and type the code *2767*3855# (this will automatically start the process and wipe the cache and reset the phone).
Once the Home screen appears again switch off the phone. Now restart the phone in 'downloading mode' by pressing the 'home' (centre) + 'vol. down' + 'power' button together (the message 'Downloading.... Do not turn off target!!!' should appear on the screen, or 'Forced upload by Key pressing').

11) NOW connect your phone to PC using the USB cable.

12) ODIN will show yellow color and com port no. in the box near the top in ODIN (see photo above). IF ODIN does not detect your phone at this stage then something is wrong. Check your USB drivers etc and that your phone is in download mode.

13) Click Start and watch the progress bar (green color) in the top box (above the timer).

14) WAIT until PASS message appears in box (box will turn blue color).

15) At some point ODIN will displays the message 'disconnect serial port & wait until rebooting phone' in message box. Don't disconnect the phone just yet! Wait until you see the messages "Instant destroyed' and then ' Killed timer! '. It is then okay to disconnect the phone from the PC.

Let the phone boot (if it hasn't already). It may take some time 5-10 mins for first boot so don’t panic.

After reboot do a Hard Reset again. This will again clear the cache. Let the phone restart and wait for home screen to appear. If all okay then power off, put sim and sdcard back in and then power on.

Bigwilly,

This happened to me when I first tried. Try removing the battery, wait 5-10 seconds, then replace it and switch on the phone. If that doesn't work just go through the whole procedure again as stated above.

Johan,

I am pleased my instructions helped. Now, IF if you want to go one step further you can 'root' your phone and get 'Superuser' access by following the steps in this link:

Root / Unroot Samsung Galaxy 3 Running Android 2.2 FroYo | TechAppz32

z4root worked for me on my I5800 with Android 2.1, but I couldn't get it to work with the 2.2 version I5800XXJPB version . However, I downloaded Superoneclick and followed the instructions in the link and it worked straight away.

To install busybox, I downloaded it to my PC, unzipped it to get the .apk file, then transferred it to the root directory of my microSD card using a microSD adapter in a card reader. Then put the microSD card back in the phone, go to 'Applications', and look for the 'My Files' icon (it is on 'screen 2' on my phone). Click on it and it will show you what is installed on your microSD card. Scroll down and click on busybox.apk and follow the instructions to install it.

have fun!

Bruce

It shouldn' take that long to boot up. If it hasn't booted properly start at the beginning again. Clear ODIN, and start again.

Johan,

If you are still interested in trying the I5800XXJPF version have a look at

THE ANDROID FANS: HOW TO : Install ANDROID 2.2 (FROYO) [LATEST I5800 XXJPF] on your Samsung GT-i5800/5801

Basically, when you extract the JPF .rar file you get 4 .tar files in the folder that is automatically created (instead of one when you did JPB). So, in ODIN uncheck the 'one package' box (because you now have 4 files to load, not one), select the OPS file that you downloaded (as before), then under that box select individually the BOOT, PHONE, PDA and CSC .tar files in the I5800XXJPF folder.

ODIN is then ready.

Then you go through the same process with your phone as described before.

Let me know how you get on if you try it.

Bruce

Hi. Did you get the 3G to work on VNZ?

THE ANDROID FANS: HOW TO : Install ANDROID 2.2 (FROYO) [LATEST I5800 XXJPF] on your Samsung GT-i5800/5801

Basically, when you extract the JPF .rar file you get 4 .tar files in the folder that is automatically created (instead of one when you did JPB). So, in ODIN uncheck the 'one package' box (because you now have 4 files to load, not one), select the OPS file that you downloaded (as before), then under that box select individually the BOOT, PHONE, PDA and CSC .tar files in the I5800XXJPF folder.

ODIN is then ready.

Then you go through the same process with your phone as described before.

Let me know how you get on if you try it.

Bruce

HI BRUCE,

haven't been here for a while - thanks for these further instructions.
Before I try it - what are the benefits to go to this version compared to JPB-version?

CU,
Johan

Root / Unroot Samsung Galaxy 3 Running Android 2.2 FroYo | TechAppz32

z4root worked for me on my I5800 with Android 2.1, but I couldn't get it to work with the 2.2 version I5800XXJPB version . However, I downloaded Superoneclick and followed the instructions in the link and it worked straight away.

To install busybox, I downloaded it to my PC, unzipped it to get the .apk file, then transferred it to the root directory of my microSD card using a microSD adapter in a card reader. Then put the microSD card back in the phone, go to 'Applications', and look for the 'My Files' icon (it is on 'screen 2' on my phone). Click on it and it will show you what is installed on your microSD card. Scroll down and click on busybox.apk and follow the instructions to install it.

have fun!

Bruce
Hi again Bruce,

what does this do this ROOT thing and the SUPERUSER thing?
So, it will not work with 2.2 JPB? So, I first need to install 2.2JPF? Or am I totally lost now?

thanks for explaining! means you building up your belgian beer credit ;-)

regards,
Johan

Johan,

If you root your phone you will get 'Superuser' access which will then allow you to install apps for root users only. You will know if you have Superuser access because a 'Superuser' icon will appear on your screen. It is a bit like getting Administrator privilege in MS Windows - you can see more of the operating system files than ordinary users can and run special apps that ordinary users cannot.

If you root your phone you can install apps like Busybox, Cachmate for root users, Mybackup for root, etc etc, and explore the 'hidden' files using Root Explorer.

You can do all this with the version JPB that you have already. You don't have to upgrade to JPF. Just follow the instructions to install Superoneclick in the link I gave.

I haven't noticed the differences between JPB and JPF, but just wanted the latest version. It seem to work very well.

Bruce

When you say you are getting hang what do you mean? Do you mean ODIN stops working, eg the timer stops and ODIN does not finish, or do you mean that once ODIN finishes, your phone does not reboot and gets stuck on the pulsating boot screen ?

After you finish flashing using Odin you must wait at least 5 minutes for the first boot.

you cant open it because the stupid programmers that made the kies application made it almost as heavy as World of Warcraft (when you play it on lowest graphics)so it takes up of about 500-600 of your ram space, and if you're using an ancient 2GB ram like me, you wont be able to run it im afraid

At stage 3 in the instructions put in the correct path to the .tar file.

Then complete the rest of the procedure.

Hope that helps.
I think that free extract frog app is also supposed to be mentioned in the requirements, or for flips sake put the .tar files directly in, not the rar!! i mean why?! lol
thankx though bruce, whithout your useful posts i would be stuck in the instructions like shit in a toilet !!! )

Persian Sphinx,

I don't want to hijack the Original Posters thread but the following would probably makes thing clearer:

Preparation: Make sure

(1) You have the latest version of Samsung Kies installed on you PC. You are not going to use it but it helps in keeping latest Windows drivers installed.

(2) You have downloaded ODIN and the OPS file to your PC. These can all be found on www.samfirmware.com and registering is free.

(3) You have downloaded the new firmware you wish to flash. It is usually in the form of a .rar archive file which you need to extract. If you downloaded from samfirmware take a note of the password you need to extract the file.

Your can download Free RAR Extract Frog from
Download Free Free RAR Extract Frog, Free RAR Extract Frog 2.70 Download, or
IZArc from
http://www.brothersoft.com/izarc-23348.html

(4) Your Samsung I5800 phone battery is fully charged.

(5) When told to hard reset your phone you can do it by switching on, waiting for the home screen, going to the keypad and typing the code *2767*3855# (this will automatically start the process and wipe the cache and reset the phone.

Then follow the instructions above to start ODIN and connect your phone.

Thanks to all for providing the upgrade instructions. It took a while, but I am now the proud user of FROYO.XXJPF.

A few observations from this novice/non-technophile:

1. The phone I bought (a Polish-language version bought in USA on Amazon) came with Eclair, Rev. 1. Not sure if that made any difference in the end, but I note it. I didn't retain the actual file name.

2. Following the instructions at the top, then alternate ones further down the thread, I sought to download the single JPB file initially. Three tries, three hangs. Waited 15 minutes a couple of times. Thought I had killed the phone.

3. One point of confusion in the instructions: with each download attempt, I received the 'disconnect serial port & wait until rebooting phone' in the ODIN
message box BEFORE the ODIN timer finished and the box on top turned blue and said "PASS". This caused me some confusion as to when to disconnect the serial cable. There were also a couple lines that appeared in the message box after "disconnect serial port. . ." (one, I believe, said "Instant destroyed") that freaked me out a bit.

4. Finally, decided to go with the JPF package. So, entered all four of the .tar files into ODIN and held my breath after starting the download. Sure enough, though, after a few minutes of boot time, the home screen popped up. A little minor fiddling (including the second hard reset) and nearly good as new. Not sure what to do about a few little anomalies I'm noticing--hangs, intermittent GPS. Any further tips (or links to tips) in that regard appreciated.

mcz,

Thanks. I have update my original post so that point 15 is clearer.

FYI the first time I tried to update from Rev 2.1 to 2.2 it didn't go smoothly either. I think it took me about 4 hours to get there!

Hi guys,

Is there a way to backup all settings and application before upgrading and then restore these settings to avoid to set up everything again?

Many thanks,
