New firmwares XWJG1 and XWJFF !
It contains 2 CSC files. The localization is russian and ex-USSR.
XWJFF: This is the European version, with corresponding localization.
Both files can now be found on samsung-firmwares.com
The JG1 version has a serious issue with SMS, i.e. cannot send SMS written with Swype. This can be fixed by installing Paul@Modaco's custom rom (r2).
Some clarification on CSC, as explained very nicely by andrewin on forums.samdroid.net:
"CSC contains some country-specific apps (for example, uTalk and Naviphone for Russia), and also country APN settings.
If you enter *#272*HHMM# (where HHMM the time on your device, eg. 0750 for 7:50am) in the standard dialer and see a choice of several country codes, you have Multi CSC. Once selected, one will be applied erasing all your data.
Otherwise you will see only one country code which is already applied, that means you have Single CSC.
The CSC stays till you flash a new Multi CSC that does not have selected country code, or flash new Single CSC. "
The file in the JFF firmware is a "multi CSC", and has APN settings for western European countries, including the UK. The CSC files in the JG1 firmware, are Russian and ex-Soviet settings, and that's why the phone starts in Russian. I guess it doesn't matter since you can change the language to whatever. But your country-specific apps will not be there by default, and you will have to re-install them (Voice Search for example).
The countries contained in the multiligual CSC of JFF are listed here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0&postcount=76
And it turns out (thanks rodney.cabahug) that you can use the multilingual CSC (I9000OXXJF9) together with the code and modem files from the JG1 firmware. (the files in JG1 are newer by about 5 days - but not necessarily better, there is a possibility that the only difference is in localization). Also, if you do this, the Swype problem disappears for the JG1 firmware (presumably the swype problem lies in the russian CSC file).

** DO NOT FLASH THIS IF YOU WANT CHINESE SUPPORT, THIS IS A EUROPEAN FIRMWARE **
