Default [GUIDE] How to Install firmware(1.5/2.1) on your Galaxy

Hey guys,

All the guides I read were ethier a bit incomplete, a bit wrong or outdated. So I decided to create this new guide, this guide is the first in a series of guides I will be doing for various things that you can do with your i5700, so if you need any help with anything please do not hesitate to reply or send me a message and I will happily help you out. With that over and done with let's get started:

Items required:
_________________________________________________
A firmware you want to upgrade/downgrade to(I will explain where to get this below)
_
A Galaxy Spica/Lite/Portal that is over half way charged
_
A USB Cable for you phone
_
All drivers & PC Suite must be both installed from your Samsung NPC Disc that came with your phone
__________________________________________________

If you do not know what firmware you want to upgrade to, go to:
www.Samsung-Firmwares.com - Login
_
Here they have a lot of i5700 firmware you will need to register to view them though, pick one, if you don't know which one you want then here is what I recommend:
If your looking for the best 1.5 firmware: I5700XEIL5 is the best 1.5 firmware
_
If your looking for the best 2.1 firmware: I570EDDJB2 or I5700XXJB3, doesn't really matter which one, both should work fine on your device.
__________________________________________________

Okay, now you should have all you need and you should have download a firmware. Now, unzip that firmware to a folder anywhere on your computer, it should extract several .tar files, like: I5700_SOMTHING_BOOTLOADER, I5700_SOMTHING_PHONE. If it has, great, if not, try downloading another firmware which will be simpler to install.

__________________________________________________

Step 1:
OPTIONAL: You may or may not want to remove your SD Card and SIM card, I didn't but some guides say you should.

Download Odin here

Next, extract the entire contents of the Odin zip into the SAME folder where you extracted the firmware earlier.
Now turn on your phone in a special download mode by pressing Volume Down, Camera and the Power buttons all at once.
Once this is done, you should see a screen like this:



Now, just simply insert your USB Cable into your device and your PC, make sure to close the Samsung NPC client now.


Step 2:

We're almost ready to start downloading the firmware onto our device, to make sure it's all ready, go to Device Manager in windows, make sure it looks somthing like this:



There must be both a Samsung Bus controller and a Samsung Modem however it may not say the 'Android' part depending on your drivers. If this isn't coming up, reinsert your NPC CD and install the drivers for the phone again.


Step 3:

Now open the Odin EXE file in the folder with Odin and your firmware, you now need to set up Odin so it looks similar to this(the prefix or the I570/I5700EDDJB2 part of the file will change depending on what firmware you are installing, just make sure that you link the Bootloader tar file with the bootloader image section in Odin!)



Make sure that under the section COM Port mapping that number 1 is lighting up yellow like in the picture and verify that your settings are the same as the above image(with the exception of the firmware files) and now click start!

WHATEVER YOU DO, do not disconnect your phone unless you want a brick.

It should take no longer than 3 minutes to download the firmware onto your phone and once it's downloaded it should restart itself, you can follow the progress by watching the bar on the Download Mode screen on the phone.


And there you have it, all done!

ABOUT THIS GUIDE:
Some images were borrowed from other sources because I was lazy, but all the text is mine.

Please reply if you've had success with this guide, or have any questions.

I am not responsible for any BRICKS with this guide and I'd like to make that very clear, as far as I know, nearly zero Galaxy's have been bricked since if there's a fault you should be able to reflash on the firmware however I cannot take responsibility for this, should your phone brick, I will endavour to help, but I DO NOT take responsibility.


Thanks,
Andrew

Hi,

It is possible that your SD Card is corrupted, try putting it in your pc, if you can read it, back everything up, then format the SD Card and now put the SD card into the phone, if it works then take it back out and put your stuff back on

It is possible that XXJB3 is incompatible with your phone or it may just be a corrupted firmware(Although I'm pretty sure it isn't) but like I said on DDJB2 my SD Card worked fine, some people claim that you should take out your Sim and SD Card during flashing however I didn't and it worked fine, but if you want you could try that next time you flash.

Thanks,
Andrew

No, they're two very different phones in terms of the motherboard and processor, it is unlikely(unfortuantly) that 2.1 will ever be officially released on the i5700.

I assume they meant the i7500 won't get it, Samsung have confirmed that the i5700 is definitely getting it

It should, depending on how Samsung release it. If it's an OTA (over-the-air) release, it's up to the carriers to send it out, but that should be a formality, done more-or-less straight away.

However, it's more likely that Samsung will publish it online, and we will have to manually update our phones using their 'Kies' software. If that's the case, everybody should get it at the same time

Hello guys, I have one big problem... It all went smoothly... odin recognised my i5700, the firmware was downloaded to my i5700 and then phone restarts... when phone restarts a triangle with exclamation mark appears instead of (i persume) installation of the software... so my phone is now somewhere in the middle of firmware upgrade. Do you maybe know where the problem is?

Yes I tried numerous times... however any 1.5 firmware goes smoothly through firmware installation, so guess I'm stuck on 1.5 right now.

Interesting, if you can flash any 1.5 firmware you should be able to flash pretty much all 2.1 firmware, an official release isn't too far of anyway now, but I don't see how your problem is caused.

If it doesn't want to flash I wouldn't push it, you don't want a bricked device when Official 2.1 is so close

Sorry I can't help much

Thanks,
Andrew

Seems like a good guide, except I get to the end of step 2, and can go no further.

I am having a driver issue, and no matter how many times I insert the NPS CD and reinstall drivers, I cannot seem to get the "Android" bit in the modem device name, mine says Samsung Mobile Modem, or I have had it saying CDMA Mobile, or something like that.

I have tried ignoring this and going through the rest of the guide, but I just get Odin started and it gets stuck on <1> Setup Connection and will not go any further.

Can anyone here help me with this issue, it has been driving me crazy for the last 5 hours!!

I am trying to flash I570EXXJCB.

Looks like there is no support from the OP.

Eventually I installed XP to my Net Book and played around more with the drivers some more. Finally got it working, but don't ask me to explain why.

For those of you stuck on setup connection, Read this Official Samsung Spica Discussion Thread - Page 5 - Digit's Technology Discussion Forum

Also try installing this driver, it includes the required drivers for flashing as well

Yesterday I successfully upgraded my spica to android 2.1 I570EXXJCE from 1.5

I also got the "setup connection.." stuck forever. I had all the drivers installed properly and they were shown correctly in the Device Manager.

The solution that worked for me is:

1) In Odin, I selected One Package and chose the old spica ops file. Then started the flash.

2) Once the phone reboots, an exclamation mark will come in the phone. During that stage, close the odin, unplug the usb and remove the battery from the phone.

3) Next, start the phone in the download mode (Volume down + Camera + Power) button. Open odin and select the new spica_jc3.ops. Then connect the usb and start the flashing.
It went smoothly and it will finish in 6 mins with PASS in odin !!

Try as I might, I cannot get my laptop to apply the correct drivers when I connect the phone in 'download mode'. The drivers are fine in phone mode, but not in 'download mode'.

Just says 'unknown device', and when I try to install the drivers (from the driver pack) it says it can't.

Maybe a quirk of my PC...

I'm still here and I'm sorry for the lack of support I've just been rather busy.

People having issues with drivers there's not much I can do, I can't see why sometimes the drivers work and sometimes they don't, they are completley irratic.

If your having alot of trouble with updating then I suggest you wait for an official release in your country which will be better than the current releases, however the wait could be long so it's up to you

Thanks,
Andrew

I've given up waiting for Samsung and T-Mobile to get their act together so I think I am going to Odin my Portal.

Trouble is, following the guide at the top, I don't get the COM port thing (the bit in yellow on the picture) in Odin. There is nothing there on my Odin screen.

I've checked in device manager and my USB device and Android modem are there as described.

Any ideas?

PC studio and New PC Studio aren't required.

Individuals who want to use XX firmwares should use JCE/JCF/JD1 as these are newer than the ones in the OP.

Also remember to find the right spica_ops file that corresponds to the firmware.

You should also at least credit the person you took the pictures from

Mine is successfully flashed, and it does stay on the Samsung screen for ages. Give it a couple of minutes and the phone should then boot up.

If not, try reflashing.

Anyone experiencing problems with Odin recognising their phone, blame the crappy USB drivers. You may need to attach, and re-attach the phone once Odin has started.

Try re-booting the phone, and or your PC.

Failing that install the Kies software.

See Download Kies Here

It comes with later USB drivers. Also ensure neither Kies or PC studio are running when you run Odin.

If you're running Windows7 you definately need kies.

I finally got mine to work after getting stuck at "<1> Setup Connection.."

It seems to be really fussy.. so here are some things to try that may solve the problem..

1)Make sure any Samsung programs like PC Studio or keis are not running when you use ODIN (close them in the taskbar)

2)) Remove everything Samsung from add/remove programs (I actually had a fair few with the modem drivers appearing multiple times..) Install Keis only and reboot.

3) Try a factory reset of the phone (dial *2767*3855# )

4) Unplug other USB devices and try a different USB plug for the phone.

5) Plug the phone into the USB with the phone switched on in normal mode, remove phone. Start ODIN. Reboot phone into Download mode and plugin again.

6) Try another PC/version of windows if available

7) Try installing parts of the firmware separatly (see this thread for details). I didn't have to do this.

8) Give up and throw crappy Samsung phone in the Bin and buy a shiny new phone with Android 2.1 pre installed! :-)


EXTRA: There seems to be a large variation in the speed and stability of different firmware versions. If you're in Europe use firmware I570EXXJD4 which has been tested as the best version so far.. (though not the newest, which doesn't matter because they're all android 2.1 update 1 anyway)

Hi, i have windows 7 64-bit installed on my computer. Would it be possible for getting the drivers for the phone? and would the flashing be a success?

TIA

It takes a few minutes after flashing to reboot. How long did you leave it before removing the battery?

hi a couple of days ago I managed to get samsung nps to recognise my phone (not entirely sure how brcause now its not working) and it came up with "this device only supports update" or something like that. So I went to update device, chose GT-i5700, but then came up with "this device doesn't support update." I think I'm close, can someone help. Is it a missing driver... or what.
