Hi Guys. I am computer savvy but a Galaxy S newbie.
My phone recovery mode and download mode both operate correctly and I have backed up all my data.
I have tried rooting my phone with a couple of one click methods (Super1click) but they failed. I believe though that Darky's ROM is excellent and can be installed without rooting the phone.
I have decided to install Darky's ROM v10 and have downloaded Odin as advised in the webpage entitled "[GUIDE] Final v10.1 - Official DarkyROM - Gingerbread (JVH) - Noob-Friendly" at URL "http://www.darkyrom.com/community/index.php?threads/guide-final-v10-1-official-darkyrom-gingerbread-jvh-noob-friendly.3080/
Now this is where I get confused by the term "Gingerbread (JVH)". What is JVH? Here are the details from my Phone:
Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000
Firmware Version: 2.3.3
Baseband Version: I9000BUJV3
Kernel Version: 18.104.22.168-I9000BUJV9-CL188519
Build Number: GINGERBREAD.BUJV9
I am in the UK.
The phone OS was FROYO but updated to GINGERBREAD when update released via KIES.
The instructions I refer to above i.e. GINGERBREAD (JVH) stress to follow the correct instructions and to follow them exactly but is my phone GINGERBREAD (JVH)?
Bearing in mind the obviously deliberate warnings I want to make sure I am using the correct instructions. Any comments/advice/help would be most welcome.
Additionally I forgot to mention that my SDCARD folder is not on the root but is a subfolder of a folder called /mnt but all instructions I have read imply SDCARD should be the root folder?! Perhaps that's why those one click root apps didn't work?
