[QUOTE=josteink;12978342]Downloaded CF-Root-XX_OXA_JVK-v3.1-CWM3RFS. I'm pretty sure I got the link from this thread or the "Gingerbread is OUT" thread. Check the first pages on both.QUOTE]

There is a CF-Root for JVB.

Ok ok, some explanations here : MANY people have copy / paste the Wikipedia page for the 2.3.3 Gingerbread features, but keep in mind that these feature were show on a Google Nexus S which the second flagship Google phone.

Google decided for this phone to switch from the Yaffs filesystem to Ext4, added some eyes-candy feature (like CRT off witch is not really battery friendly but who's care, it makes many buzz) and SIP support (a thing mostly hated by 99.5% of carrier). Features like Improved system-wide copy–paste functionalities, Enhanced support for native code development, Audio + graphical + and input enhancements for game developers, concurrent garbage collection for increased performance, a download manager for long-running downloads and improved power management and application control are widly forgotten (not eyes-candy effect I guess)

We have a Samsung Galaxy S, with RFS as default filesystem and like ALL others smartphones have some constraint about space allocated for each partitions (you can read Ramad post about pit for further information), and for a year now, many carrier have their crappyware compiled and waiting to be added to Samsung base ROM. For many carrier, they push as possible bloatware that there's only 1 ou 2 Mb free in /system. As in normal case, nobody have to had something in it, there's no problem. And now comes Ext4, a filesystem with better performance against RFS but with a drawback, for the same files, it uses more space on flash than RFS (meta-data are bigger). So converting automagicaly filesystem can not be done so easily and if Samsung want to push quickly Gingerbread for carriers which are mostly reluctant to change anything in their habits, it seems that it can't switch filesystem on a already sold smartphone. They have learned, the Galaxy S 2 will this in Ext4 out of the box. But in fact, the Galaxy S will also have mostly all features of Gingerbread, it's not so bad.

Hi guys,

Have searched thread but cant see answer to my question.

After help from this thread ive flashed with XXJVK on my UK Galaxy S.

flashed using odin 1.3 had no problems, firmware seems good and stable but i want to flash to the official release.

Kies says "this device cannot be updated".

Can i reflash with XXJVB with odin or do i have to put it back to 2.2.

Thanks in advance!!!

No need to go back to 2.2. This is a full ROM and can even be flashed with repartition if you want to start from scratch.
