    First of all, I'd like to say hello to everyone at Android Forums. I've already found lots of very useful information here.

    My question relates to the i9100G for certain, since I have already rooted the phone.

    I want to flash this ROM: [ROM][19100G] KL3 GaLaXyRom v4.1

    I also want to change the CSC from China only, to mutli-CSC. Will this ROM work on my phone, and where can I find the multi-CSC tar file for the i9100G? Or will flashing this ROM give me multi-CSC?

    Many thanks,
    Gimzo

    Welcome to the forum gimzo and thanks for joining.

    There shouldn't be any need to change your csc as the ROM will debrand your phone from the Chinese carrier.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Shotgun84. I will flash the ROM later and report my results.

    Yes, that worked. The ROM added a number of other CSCs to choose from. Many thanks, Shotgun84.

    I have another small question. Is it possible to set the i9100G to use the US CSC? I currently have it set to the Korean CSC and that works very well. However, I really want to access the Amazon market as well. Is this possible, and how would I go about doing that?

    Thanks,
    gimzo

    Thanks, ShotGun. Sadly, that did not work. I used the market enabler, but I cannot access the Amazon Android Market from within China. It simply says that my location is not supported. Which it is not. I'm trying to get my phone to think I'm in the U.S. I did try to access the store through DroidVPN, but that didn't work, either. I also get a simliar problem buying applications via the Google market. I can download free applications from Google, but cannot buy any paid applications. I've tried wiping the cache / Dalvik and that did nothing.

    Does any one know of a way to get around this issue?

    Many thanks,
    gimzo

    Welcome to the forum hiro123 and thanks for joining.

    I would root using the superatmos kernel. I can't really say which of the roms is the best as I don't have the G so haven't tried them. I'd suggest reading through the xda links and see what other users think.

    If you follow these steps you should be fine.
    1. Instal kies on your PC from here
    Kies Samsung
    2. Download Odin and instal it on your PC from here
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=611625&d=1306787405
    3. Download the kernel to your PC from here
    [Kernel][I9100G][31/3/2012] Lucifr Kernel 1.5 - xda-developers
    You need the tar version.
    4. Make sure you don't have kies running in the background on your PC and then open Odin.
    5. Tick next to where it says pda, then click on pda and insert the kernel tar you downloaded.
    6. Do not tick or untick anything else
    7. Turn off your phone, then hold volume down, power and menu until your phone boots. You will see a screen asking if you want to continue into download mode. Press volume up to continue.
    8. Attach your phone to your PC with the USB cable while still in download mode.
    9. Press start and wait for a minute or two until your phone reboots.
    10. You are now rooted.

    3) hold volume down,menu,power button
    4) screen boots in downloading mode, press volume up
    5) run odin

    7) did NOT check or uncheck any other boxes..
    8) connect phone to pc with usb cable
    9) press start

    Nope, nothing changed..

    1) phone restart with yellow triangle icon ( as every rooted phone does )
    2) kernel version shows 2.6.35.7-g4f27b76-dirty-Lucifr-1.5uv root@hanny-laptop#1
    3) cwm says the samething
    4) cwm shows taht kernel version is unknown

    That all seems OK.

    I do not, as I have mentioned, own the "G" variant and so therefore cannot replicate your actions.

    I notice that you have re-posted your dilemma in the "G", thread. So hopefully, someone can advise you further.

    Android version
    2.3.6

    Baseband version
    I9100GZCLC2

    Kernel version
    2.3.6.35.7
    se.infra@SEI-30 #2

    Build number
    GINGERBREAD.ZCLC2

    Product Code
    GT-I9100LKGCHN

    PDA
    I9100GZCLC2
    PHONE
    I9100GZCLC2
