    Hi. I am really new to this so please be patient with me. I have a galaxy S GT-I9000 which is on firmware 2.2 and build number FROYO.BOJPB. Kernel version (whatever that is) is root@SE-S608 #1

    I want to upgrade the firmware to at least 2.3.4 to make my phone compatible with my car! I haven't got the faintest clue how to go about this so really need an idiot's guide on how to do this ...if I can. I have Samsumg Kies on my home PC and I am sure in the past I have done a firmware upgrade but it no longer gives me that option.

    Any help greatly appreciated. Hope this is in the right place.
