    What are we suppose to do with the separate kernel?

  • Agbeshie Desewu

    Is this firmware for GT i91000G too?

  • Larry

    Download mode gets startet by “Volume DOWN” + Home + Power ;)

  • Mitsurugi

    Larry, you’re right!! You saved my life :)
    If you press “volume up”(instead of volume down) + Home + Power you’ll get stuck in Odin after pressing the start button. I’ve tried this several times(more than 15 times) and don’t know what is wrong until I saw your message. So… thank you very much :)

    By the way, after upgrading to ice cream sandwich do you guys experiencing with face lock error setting ? The “Settings” App always forced close everytime I configure the face lock security setting. After that, everytime whenever I want to unlock the screen there’s an error message on the screen “Face Unlock couldn’t start”? Is there any solution for this?
