    Hey I just bought myself a Galaxy S i9000. it came pre-installed with gingerbread 2.3.3 build number DDJV6. baseband version i9000DDJV4.

    Do I need to root my galaxy S phone even if it comes with gingerbread. and there is also a 2.3.4 leaked version of the gingerbread for the UK. I live in india. is it safe to update it with the 2.3.4 version of the UK. will it work on my smartphone. Here's the link for it:

    Samsung Galaxy S I9000 Gingerbread 2.3.4 update Country Release Status (Daily Updated) | Josephws'sBlog | YouMobile

    please help me out with this.:(

    I also have another question. do I need to install any kind of lagfix on my phone. I thought lagfix would not be required for the gingerbread versions.

    1. Rooting is not just for updates. It allows you to do other stuff on the phone, even if you dont change your ROMs. Some apps will only work on rooted devices, for example.

    2. LagFix - if the phone is not lagging, then there's no need.

    So what do you suggest, do I root my phone. If I even decide to root my phone, will I receive official updates directly from samsung kies on my phone?

    and regarding the Lagfix, I've seen that my phone does lag some times when I scroll through the app screens and contacts. I even get less score on the quadrant benchmark around 1093. So should I install lagfix.

    Personally, you dont have to root if you dont want to, only do so if you need it.

    Lagfix, up to you still, if you think you need it.

    Never rooted or installed lagfix on my SGSL and works fine for me.

    I don't care about rooting. It's of no use for me anyway because I will not be installing any custom roms. :cool: I will only be updating my phone through android updates.

    I think I may have to install lagfix on galaxy S i9000. the i9003 that you have does not have any kind of lagfix.

    if I want to install a lagfix on 2.3.3, then which one do I install on my phone and how do I install it.:thinking:
