Galaxy S GT-I9000 with CM9 reboot problem

11 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have flashed my phone with CM9 in the way described here:

http://www.theandroidsoul.com/cm9-cyanogenmod-9-for-galaxy-s/

but after I got to step 8 my phone has began to reboot itself continously (samsung logo appears, cyanogenmod logo appears and after that reboots itself).

ROM that I was trying to flash was from here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1363593 ROM: BUILD 12:

Before of the problem I had CM7 and it was working just fine.

Regardless of the problem I can get intro Download mode, so I want to try to flash CM7 or CM9 with Odin.

Please help me (if you can), or guide me to someone who can :)

Thanks,

Phew, what a guide! follow my video. Its much more simpler ;)

If you still need to root your phone then flash it with EZ base first as that will root it and install clockwork for you!

Hello,

Problem is that my phone does not get to clockworkmod recovery, just reboots itself. I can only start my phone in Download mode.

Thanks,

Use EZ base as per second video then reinstall CM7 from there

Found a workaround.

1. Installed official ROM 2.3.4 with Odin

2. Rooted ROM 2.3.4 with Odin

3. Installed CWM from Market

4. Installed CM 7 with CWM

5. Reinstalled backup of app+data + system settings

P.S. I have tried 2-3 times to install CM9 with the same result described above. Lost a whole night installing and trying different rooms.

I thought i9000 isn't fast enough for ICS?!

I have tried "ICS_4.0.3_r1-RC2.11-i9000.zip" with "ICS-RC2.1-i9000-Glitch.zip" too and it is working just fine. Problem with the ICS is, that it has few bugs and it is missing some configuration option (compared to the official release ).

Will wait untill the official release of CM 9 for Galaxy S I9000.

I have some problem with you, can't access recovery mod neither through intergral shutdown progam nor through 3-button com way.

And I have already tried many diffierent ways to fix, but failed.

Have you tried to boot in Download mode and put 2.3.4 on it?

1. Put official android release : http://www.theandroi...allation-guide/

2. Root the release : http://www.theandroi...allation-guide/

3. Download CM7 nightly build #181 (its my first option, its better than the stable release )

4. Reboot in Recovery mode (care because the CWM is an old version with orange menu)

4.1. Try to install CM7. Care because first it will update CWM to th new version and will reboot itself.

4.2. Hold down buttons to enter in Recovery mode after reboot.

4.3. Now the new CWM will be used (the menu is blue now).

4.4. Try to install CM7 again. This time will complete.

5. After reboot U will have CM7 working.

Optional step: If U have saved old data then put it back and the phone will be just like before of the problem.

If U have more questions my email is [email protected]

I meant it failed when update from cm7.1 to cm9.

CM7.1 is working well with me.

That was what Samsung said about SGS. Look at Nexus S, it could runs ICS now and it's hardware isn't much different from SGS.
