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 'samfirmware.com'.
                                                                                                                     (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!!!

For any queries leave a comment and i will get back to you.

  14. I'm going to upgrade using this steps. Couple of questions as I'm preparing for it.
    1. Will it root my phone and void warranty? If it's so then what about http://www.triple3online.com/samsung-gt-i5801-froyo-update-without-root/ which claims that I don't need to root my phone and that if anything doesn't work I can just reset to factory settings and I'll have my phone back.

    2. It's written that I should backup things before hand only. So I will backup my contacts and messages and other files on SD Card will remain safe anyway. But I'm worried that if something goes wrong, how am I going to get the same software back which I get on doing factory reset right now? Its written in the comment on the other blog of yours that, I can install 2.1 firmware of samfirmware.com but that too is for I5800 and not the original one I've on my phone.

  18. 4. And ultimately the 2.2 FROYO(i5800 xxjpf) firmware (Download here). The page gives a download option for I5800XXJPF.rar (110.45 MB) file and not a .tar file! please clarify!

  20. Create your APN settings. Which service provider do you use? for tata docomo you have to put TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET in APN and leav all other things as default. Also give a name you like.

    ReplyDelete
  21. @people download the zip file and unzip it to get the tar file.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @sachin google for your operators apn names and manually insert them into your settings>wireless and network>mobile networks>access point names
    press menu and tap new apn

    or mail me your operator name and i will mail you back the settings.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @ismail whatever default checkboxes are checked keep them untouched. Just see that one package box is unchecked.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @ismail backup your whole apps list (apks + data) with "Mybackup root"

    and no your phone wont be rooted you have to root it again.

    and i am also not able to run flash games or flash videos after updating to 2.2 anroid

  26. please tell me the unlocking universal phone code for samsung phones

  27. @sachin flash 10.1 cannot be installed on the i5800 aka the galaxy 3 because flash 10.1 needs an arm7 processor and the g3 has an arm6 processor. But flash 9 can be installed but its practically of no use beacuse it crashes the browser. What you can do is download a browser called skyfire from the market and enjoy flash videos and games from there.

    ReplyDelete
  28. @sachin try any of these..
    *2767*637#
    *2767*688#
    *2767*7822573738#
    *2767*3855#

  32. my connection provider is vodafone i am not able to run gprs please tell me internet and apn settings.
    please help me

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi Sachin! call vodafone customer care and ask them for settings. If they tell you that they will send you the setting by sms, ask them to give you the following specific settings
    1. APN
    2. MCC
    3. MNC
    Once they give you those settings. Go to "Settings > Wireless & Networks > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names > Option button > New APN" and then set the above three settings. Leave all others as defaults.

    That should work for you.

    Hope this helps.

  44. Because i m not happy with froyo 2.2. My camera is hanging again and again my calls are disconnecting without any reason and network disappeared without any reason..

    ReplyDelete
  45. This might happen due to any of the application you installed from market. Particularly when you have installed a lot of apps. If you want to give it a try, you can check it by un-installing apps one by one and verifying your camera after uninstalling each app. That way you might be able to find the culprit app. This also happened with me in the beginning when I was too much excited and installed a lot of apps after flashing to froyo. Then I uninstalled apps one by one and rebooted a few times and since then it works fine.

    ReplyDelete
