Thread: Unroot & Restore Galaxy S i9000

  1. #1

    Question Unroot & Restore Galaxy S i9000

    So I got my Galaxy S today and rooted it, installed CM9 and it worked OK for a while except it randomly rebooted. This was with CM9.1.0 stable.

    Now I want to recover it but cannot seem to get it working. I have already tried flashing in the official 2.3.6 firmware with Odin but when its done it brings up the recovery thing with lots of errors and it simply won't boot into the original firmware.

    Any advice on how I can get it unrooted and restored ?

    Did you do a factory wipe/reset ?

    Trying to load the CM10 nightly build now but CWM 2.5.1 SpeedMod says there is no file on the external SD.... very strange.

    Sucks man

    Got an S i9000 myself, and prefer to keep it OEM, no rooting yet.

    Wish I can get it back to OEM mode.
    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Got an official 2.3.6 firmware and loaded it with Odin. Now the Android system Recover (3e) comes up with an error : e:format_volume: rfs format failed on /dev/block/stl10

    Mmm, seems like the Android fanbois here don't have much in the line of supporting their wonderful devices. Anyways, found out my problem was a rare but fixable one : http://snappybytes.blogspot.com/2012...error-sgs.html

    Thanks, well for those who potentially stumble upon this thread in the future, to unroot your phone simply flash in an official firmware using the the download mode and a tool like Odin.

    Must admit it was a lot harder flashing cooked firmware into Symbian phones, but things seldom went screwy like I had today
