    Hello guys.

    I'm sure the majority of you get sick of seeing people with no clue on how to do stuff on their Android phones, and I apologize in advance, but I used to be an iPhone user before swapping over and becoming a Droid, however, O2 in the UK are awful, and they don't update the handsets, I'm still on 2.2 Froyo, instead of 2.2.1 or even 2.3 Gingerbread.

    I'm looking to the possibility of getting a capable Gingerbread ROM onto my phone, but I have absolutely no clue how to do it, don't get me wrong, I look on the XDA forums on quite a regular basis, and I'm aware of Darky's ROM, and the rest, however, I look at the HOW TO posts explaining how to get it onto your phone, and some of them are unbelievably basic, and for a start off user using an Android phone wanting to get the best out of it, but not knowing how to do the majority of things such as Rooting, and Flashing, it's impossible to understand the majority of the posts on this forum.

    I used to jailbreak all the time, but that was easy compared to this, some may say Droid's are easier to do, but I disagree, if anybody has any tips, or step-by-step up to date guides on how to get a ROM/kernel etc onto my phone, or make it quicker, or quite frankly anything, as my phone is unbelievably laggy, it would be MUCH appreciated.

    Many Thanks in advance.

    Right, okay, I'm assuming the first link isn't as stable as the second, so I'd go with the second, step by step guide is great, is there anything else I need to do, to get that on my phone other than that guide?

    Also, what's the pro/cons of it?

    Havent really found any cons yet! its practally perfect. there is no lag..WHATSOEVER. you get the abilty to to change boot anamation in minutes, voodoo lagfix, root, its all there! once its all flashed the modem that cam with the rom might not work in your area so just google one for your area: )

    I'm with you on everything so far and I'm going to go through that walk through guide on how to install it, but just to clarify, going through that list will root, lagfix, and sort everything?

    Also, the modem thing I'm confused by now. :p

    just go through with the rom flash and if your phone cant get any signal then let me know and ill find you a modem! and yes it wil fix all of those thing and sort your phone right out

    Cheers, I'll get it done tomorrow and re-post if any issues.

    If it helps, here's my current phone info:

    Firmware 2.2

    Baseband I9000ADJP3

    Kernel 2.6.32.9 root@SE-S608 #1

    Build Number FROYO-ADJP6

    Does that tell you anything about whether I'll have issues with signal/3G?

    Its hard to tell because i dont know the band numbers. Flash the rom and if you cant get service then click on the "modems link in my signature and download the JP3 one(your current modem) and put it on your internal sd. boot into recovery,install zip,choose zip, and flash that modem and you will be set: ) let me know if you have any issues

    Hey Shine,

    I have been not updating or flashing my phone because Kies killed my computer (well, I had to get it wiped), and I heard that sometimes the I9000M has problems. Now, I think that I will give this one a go. How long should a newbie like me expect to take to do this? It will be my first flash.

    Anyone here know how to get darky's 9.5 rom on a galaxy s vibrant T959? Goal is to have a working Honeycomb =P Right now I have bionix from teamwhiskey and i think the kernel is k47+voodoo. When I look at about phone it just says 2.6.32.9 so idk wtf is going on there. I can find the voodoo files in root explorer. Anyone mind helping a noob out?
