Default [Q] ICS on rooted GT-I9100G with CWM

Hi

How can I upgrade (a zip file, right?) my android 2.3.6 device to 4.0.3 (or later)?

I've found some obscure chinese site, but I couldn't understand anything.

My system's information:
Code:
Select Code
Model Number: GT-I9100G
Android Version: 2.3.6
Baseband Version: I9100GXXKL4
Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7-g7b57e17-dirty-Lucifr_1.60uv-300Mhz
Build Number: GINGERBREAD.XXLB1

I would really, REALLY like to do it via a .zip file from within CWM without having to flash my phone with a PC (as I only have linux).

I am based in Central Europe, if that matters.


(I was told to ask here again, perhaps you should fix the issue with the checkbox?)

Default Root ICS

At the moment, the leak ICS is only available for the China model i9100g. Our i9100g need different bootloader in order to run this. So, we can't flash it through CWM or Odin. Otherwise your phone will brick if you try.

If you have china i9100g and you want to root on this ICS. Follow these step:
1. Download this CWM & ROOT.rar and extract it. You will have two files.
2. Put the extracted file CWM.zip in external sd card and 1234.zip in internal sd card.
3. Turn off your phone. After that turn on your phone into recovery mode. (press hold menu button, Volume up and power button)
4. In the recovery mode, goto [apply update from external storage], choose the file CWM.ZIP and press yes to flash.
5. Now you should have temporary CWM Touch Recovery, now go to [install zip from sdcard] and choose the file 1234.zip to flash.
6. Reboot your phone and you have rooted your phone.

Why do we need a leak? I thought android was open-source.

Please explain it technically, I am a programmer (without android experience though, only web / desktop on linux).

Yes it is, but as every device is different (chipset, board etc), it has to be released by samsung first. That's what we are waiting for atm.

Oh I see, so Samsung has not been pushing its drivers to the android repo while it has been working towards this release.

But the drivers must be the same as for 2.3.6, right? Why not just use them?

Sorry but you have no idea what you're talking about. There have been little or no changes in the linux kernel API between 2.6 and 3.x.

So making an analogy between W95 vs. W7 is like ... geez.


So, are there any efforts to reverse-engineer these drivers / firmwares?
