HOW TO : Install ANDROID 2.2 (FROYO) [LATEST I5800 XXJPF] on your Samsung GT-i5800/5801

Well, you have waited enough for the FROYO 2.2 (official) update for your gt i5800/5801, here's a simple and easy way to do it right.

BUG FIXES : Battery life issue resolved and a few other fixes.

THINGS your gonna need :

1. Your Samsung GT i5800/5801.
2. ODIN v4.252 (Download here)
3. OPS file [Its basically a partition file] (Download here)
4. And ultimately the 2.2 FROYO(i5800 xxjpf) firmware (Download here)
    When you extract the firmware file its going to ask for a password,use this ''.
                                                                                                                     (without the quotes)
5. A PC and a micro USB data cable (preferably the provided samsung data cable) to connect.

THE Process :

Your first step would be to BACK UP ALL YOUR DATA AND APPS. Was i loud enough....okay..
You can export your contacts to your sd card and for your apps there's a niffty app called 'appmonster', which you can download from the market and backup all your apps including the market.apk to your sd and restore later.
And yeah also make sure your phone is fully charged.
By the way doing this DOES NOT void your warranty.

The process that worked for me is that i did a hard reset before and upgraded my firmware and then again factory reseted the device and its running flawlessly.

1. Download all the files above.

2. Extract the 2.2 firmware file to get 4(four) ".tar" file.

3.Now open ODIN and select the OPS file that you downloaded, then select individually the BOOT, PHONE, PDA and CSC. Now close ODIN.

4. This is where the actual thing begins so be careful.
    Power off your phone and remove the battery, then connect the data cable, reconnect the battery and connect it to the PC.

5. Fire up ODIN again and recheck the settings as you put earlier and then do the following on your phone
  • Press the following buttons together
  • Home + Volume UP + Volume DOWN + Power
    When in ODIN it shows your phone connected in some COM Port then quickly click the start button and leave the phone untill you see something like this..

ODIN will look something like this:

Now your phone will be updated with 2.2 FROYO(LATEST).
Have a blast with froyo and its neat new features(Bug fixes and battery life issue resolved).....ENJOY!!!
