Hi everyone.

My wife has owned a galaxy i9003 now for nearly 2 years and to be blunt, hates it!

I suggested to her that I try and upgrade it and improve its performance.

I must have read over 100 pages on the net yesterday learning as much as I could before starting.

I used superoneclick to root the phone which worked great.

next step was to install clockworkmod. I used odin 1.85 to flash bagaria-09.gt-i9003_pda.tar. Booted phone up and everything seemed fine with cwm but then I tried to boot into os and phone is in a never ending boot loop. I've tried deleting the data/caches but to no avail.

I can still get into cwm and download mode.

I read another 100 pages of posts from this great forum and others and it seems I need to flash a stock firmware back onto phone(xxkpe is mentioned alot) but I am unable to find it anywhere. All links on net are dead eg, hotfile etc.

Please can someone feel sorry for me and help me get my wifes phone working again before I end up divorced! lol.

Thanks for reading

So u wiped data and cache... but didn't work? My suggestions are to reflash the ROM. If it doesn't work, I'll try to go into SamMobile, download the Stock ROM for u, and upload it to dropbox.

P.S. my internet speed's 200mbps. And my ISP's reliable.

Smack that Thanks button if I helped!

Search here for the Stock Rom, I recommend a fast Internet though since this is downloading slow as hell with a slow internet.

Also you could flash a Custom rom, search this forum if available.

Using CWM you can still try to flash any rom you want, so don't panic. Just properly clean before each flash.
