Using the Beta Kitchen is at your own risk and entirely your own responsibility.
Beta Kitchen is public to open new doors for the I9000 community as a whole to further improve and evolve the SGS.
Beta Kitchen is for those who understand what BETA means.
Beta has no language barrier so using this as a excuse is not accepted.
Novice users should are and as always advised not to use the beta kitchen.
If users wish to risk using Beta Kitchen for reasons, such as ignorance, or wanting to be selfishly clever and want to be on the fast of fast and best of best rom or along these lines, its up to you but Odin is not always the answer to recovery, and just bear in mind the terms and conditions of Samsung Repairs when it comes to SU, etc.
Users asked for a long time wanting access to beta and now they got it, but again we will not be supporting beta kitchen - only listen to feedback ONLY. Wanting everything and being selfish dont mix, i guess that comes down to age, maturity and responsibility
Beta has nothing to do with donations or any other ridiculous comments suggested by others however smart they try to be with there wording.
If people do not understand what "Donations" mean then Google is yor friend and wiki has a vast catelog of info on this subject and terminology.
RomKitchen is not in any form of competition with any other dev, rom maker etc. This has never been the case, not now and nor will ever be.
All this nonsense and crap stops now!! THE END!! If people wish to complain and what ever idiotic reason which in the end only shows what kind of person they are when they start back tracking on what they say - Plain and simple, go download another ROM, there are plenty to choose from and various tastes and same applies to themes, apps etc.
If this crap continues, ill start reporting people on the grounds of creating a negative environment with the I9000 community... which still is considered to be one of the worst communities in xda, and i can see why! And help clear it up (one of the reasons the post count was introduced to stop spam rubbish etc)
Do not attempt to cause issues within the IRC Chat either or you will simply be banned and no questions asked. If you start to cause invaild unrest in this thread, then you will be simple noted and ignored and left to your own devices and hope that you end up with a brick and unable to apply for warranty on ur device. SIMPLE.

Am I affected?
Yes, you are!
But the new ROM already has a fixed kernel! Can't I just upgrade straight away?
No! You still need to follow these steps! Here's why: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=9456
I already followed these instructions once. Do I need to follow them again when upgrading to newer ROMs?
No! If you've followed these instructions, you're good to go! Just follow the instructions for the regular upgrade method
How to fix?
Download K9 CWM file (from here
), put it in your internal sdcard, also put Doc's ROM.
Boot into recovery.
Flash the K9 kernel, DO NOT REBOOT.
Go to Advanced ULK options -> reboot into recovery.
Now choose mounts and storage -> Format system
Now flash Doc's ROM, and immediately after, flash K9 CWM zip AGAIN! (Without a reboot in between)
Select reboot after flashing K9 CWM zip. Now if you had a lagfix applied before, you will get a prompt about change in config. Just select "remove new config" here.
DO NOT FLASH any bugged kernel after this, or you will have to repeat this process.
Attention all JPU users! Regarding titanium backup restore problem
Disable Voodoo if have it installed (create a folder named “disable lagfix” inside the “Voodoo” folder on your internal sdcard and reboot). If you’re coming from sztupy’s kernel, disable all lagfixes.
Make sure have the 2e recovery. If you don't have 2e recovery, see FAQ.
Make sure you have a backup of your /efs
(not mandatory, but highly recommended).
Factory reset is NOT
required, but is recommended. Wipe cache and dalvik cache if you’re not performing a factory reset.
05. DO NOT
apply any outside theme/battery mods. See FAQ point 9 if you want a circle battery mod with this theme.
(Read this very carefully!)
Download the ROM (check above) and put it on your internal sdcard.
If you don't have a clockworkmod kernel, download clockworkmod recovery from here
. You *need* Clockworkmod, this won’t work with stock recovery. Rename the clockworkmod recovery file to “update.zip” and put it on your internal sdcard.
If you had Voodoo installed prior to installing this ROM (Eclair or Froyo), make sure you still have the "disable lagfix" folder inside "/sdcard/Voodoo". If you’re coming from any other kernel, make sure you have disabled all Lagfixes.
Shutdown phone, wait for it to power down, then boot the phone into recovery mode (press volume up, keep it pressed, then press home button, keep it pressed, then press power button, keep it pressed until you see the Galaxy S screen. Release all three buttons when you see it).
Do this step *ONLY* if you don't have clockworkmod already in your kernel. Select “apply sdcard:update.zip” (use volume rocker to move up and down, and home button to select). Clockworkmod recovery will boot now (you may have to do apply update.zip twice for Clockworkmod to show up).
Once in Clockworkmod, select “install zip from sdcard” (use volume rocker to move up and down and the back button to select).
Select “choose zip from sdcard” and then select the ROM zip package. Then choose yes.
The update will start (will take some 1-2 minutes) and during the flashing you will see some strange big characters on the screen, don’t worry, that’s normal. After the process finishes, you will be dropped back into Clockworkmod recovery. From there, choose go back, and then reboot phone.
The first boot will take some time as the ROM will deodex
Upgrade instructions (from previous versions of THIS ROM only!)
Always have a backup of your apps/data (Titanium Backup/MyBackup)
Download the updated ROM from post No. 2
, and put it on your sdcard.
Boot into CWM recovery.
Choose install zip from sdcard in CWM, and browse to the downloaded zip file, and apply it.
Choose reboot phone.
If you had any lagfix applied previously, when the phone boots, you will be presented with a menu. Choose "remove new config" in that menu. The phone will reboot. If you didn't have any lagfix applied, the phone will boot straight!
EDIT: If you find the above difficult to follow, please have a look at this wonderful guide created by nitr8: http://nfye.com/toolkit/Doc-Froyo.pdf
..:: FAQ ::..
01. I don't have 2e recovery, how should I install this ROM?
Disable Voodoo (if you have it), then install the corresponding CFRoot kernel
to get 2e recovery, then flash this ROM as usual.
02. My apps are not retaining settings!
Have a look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ostcount=15980
03. I am on XXXXXXX ROM/Firmware. Can I flash this ROM?
Yes you can, as long as you have 2e recovery. If you don't, check FAQ point 1.
04. What ROM do I need to be on to flash this ROM?
This is a complete ROM, does not need a base ROM. You can flash on any firmware!
05. I am getting force closes with Maps/Voice Search/Google Search
Update the apps from the market (they require manual update).
06. I'm getting error while installation (line 79/80)
Make sure all lagfixes are disabled before you install this ROM, then reboot to stock recovery, clear data/cache, then try again.
07. I'm getting force closes all over the place
Have a look at this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=4097
08. My Market is not working
This is not a ROM problem. To temporarily fix, Go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage -> All -> Market -> Force Stop -> Clear Data -> Uninstall Updates.
09. I want a circle battery mod!
This is now very easy to do! Do the following:
- Download any theme template from post No. 2
, and flash it via CWM
- Extract the file "framework-res.apk" from the "system/framework" folder inside the theme template zip you downloaded.
- Go to http://circle.glx.nl/
and customize your circle battery mod, when it asks for framework-res.apk, upload the one you just extracted from the theme template zip.
- Wait for some time, and you will be provided with a zip file to download. Once downloaded, put the file on your sdcard, and flash via CWM.
If the above is difficult to understand, here are alternative instructions from Adevem: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=4512
10. What happened to the full ROM?
This is now a light and modular ROM. Just install the upgrade packages or missing apps update.zip from the 1st post via CWM to get the full ROM.
11. OMG I LOVE THIS ROM! What can I do to help?
We're glad you like it! Stick around here, and try and help fellow users, that would be a great help! If you wish to donate, please donate to Doc (he's the actual person behind this ROM), sztupy (for the ULF kernel), curio (for voodoo) and many more of the awesome devs around here! If you're still feeling generous, you may donate to me too!
12. I am using the slim ROM, and I don't get the puzzle on the Samsung lock screen on an SMS.
The Slim ROM contains AOSP MMS (SMS) app, hence no support for Samsung puzzle lock screen. If you want the puzzle lock screen for SMS, either install the FULL ROM, or extract the Mms.apk from /system/app on the full ROM, and push it in the slim ROM.
13. I am using the ASOP lockscreen, and when I press the menu button, the phone unlocks.
Install this FIX (ONLY FOR XXJPX) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=403
14. I am using the slim ROM, and KIES does not work.
The slim ROM does not have the MTP apk, use the FULL ROM if you need KIES.
15. Some apps that use camera are force closing (barcode scanner, camera 360 etc)
Try point #2 in this FAQ. If that doesn't work, do a factory reset.
