Thanks for replying, i am pretty much convinced its the speedmod kernel affecting the call quality, i have reflashed several times and apart from spending 3 hours late last night recovering from a semi bricked device, have come to the conlusion that it is the speedmod kernel.
Cheers bud...i just updated to this JP5 from JPO using kies and the reg hack from the post above.
Straight away i notice my signal is a lot better...usually when im at my pc it's like a blackspot where i always either get no signal or only 1 bar with my o2 simcard but now its 4 bars and even stays on HSDPA when using packet data connection.
NEW PHONE INFO IS:
WHEN I DIAL *#1234#
BUILD INFO 2010.11
UNDER MY PHONE SETTINGS/ABOUT PHONE
KERNEL 188.8.131.52 [email protected]#1
BUILD NUMBER FROYO.ADJP5
I always do a hard reset after an update and then use Titanium backup to restore everything (which I had previously used to backup everything on the previous firmware). There are 2 ways to hard reset, the first is in settingsrivacy and the other is to do it by rebooting into recovery and choosing the option there. I would try and reboot into recovery and delete the cache first before you wipe everything and see how that goes.
Dear all, can you pls help me? I would like to actualize my SGS but Kies says that my version JE3 is the last one and doesnt offer me any update.
I have changed my code to XEU in SGS and also edited registry (with Kies v82) but it doesnt help. I would like to install Froyo (in english or czech, doesnt matter) via official path - Kies so Im not interested into any "developers" changes in my SGS (just if necessary).
Hi, well the way i found to get updated was to flash XXJM1 with Odin 1.0 (you need download mode key press to work 'Hold volume down and home then while still holding those press power - It will power into download mode if you have the option in your bootloader version). Do not be tempted to enable download mode from adb shell as it won't work that way if you have no holds enabled, also if you do that you could really easily brick your phone. If you have download mode you have nothing to fear!
Once completely flashed wipe all data/factory reset then wipe cache data from the recovery menu it boots into after flash (volume up/down to navigate menu, home button to confirm. When it reboots you will have XXJM1 running.
Now plug that into kies, select firmware upgrade and bingo!
XXJM1 is offical other are not so the updater doesn't consider you upgradeable
I think you may be correct, I have been noticing excessive drain. I have reverted back to JPO with clockwork which means I still have JF3 modem, I think it is a little better, but to be sure I am going to do a full flash with kies to JPO later and I'll see how that goes.
I kept failing with Kies using JM1 eventual success was via this method .
Used old Kies + NoDial registry patcher .
Its an unlocked O2UK phone
