Samsung I5700 (Galaxy SPICA) Android 2.1 Flashing Guide (Updated)


***** USE THIS GUIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK !  *******
***** DO NOT BLAME ME FOR BRICKED DEVICES ******


What you need : 

The firmware : I570EDDJB2 in my case. (Unreleased Android 2.1 (Eclair) firmware from Samsung).
Multiloader application and Spica OPS (Odin_v4_03.exe + spica.ops) : Odin_v4_03.zip
*** Please use the new spica_jc3.ops file for the firmwares I5700XXJBA, I570EXXJC3 I570EXXJC5
Drivers for I5700 : drv5700.zip
Samsung USB Cable

Before you start : 
Backup your data !
Remove the SIM lock if any.
Create a folder and extract all files listed above + the firmware (do not extract the tar file from within the firmware)
Ensure your phones battery is sufficiently charged (and your laptops battery too if you live in a country like ours lol ;-))
Shutdown any service/software which could be using the USB port, especially the Samsung PC suite. - Very Important

Flashing :

Edit : You should probably do a hard reset before you start by punching in the following code on the phone *2767*3855#

1. Shutdown your phone and remove the SDCARD and the SIM 


2. Put the phone in "Download Mode" by pressing Volume Down + Camera + Power button.

3. Connect the Phone to the PC using USB
4. Install drivers using the drv5700 files- A lot of guys are going wrong here.  Open your device manager and ensure the two Samsung devices are shown properly before you go ahead.(circled in red) - see image below :


4a. Disconnect phone from the USB. *** (Very Important), thanks to Srikanth Kapa (For all you guys having problems with "Setup Connection"
5. Open Odin Multi Downloader v4.03.exe and then reconnect the phone, you should see the a COM port number with a yellow background.
6. Select the files as shown in the image below : 

Image Courtesy : samdroid.net
If you are using some other firmware and there is only one tar file select Option : One Package and load the file under One Package TAB.

Cross check the files and if you need to change anything click on "Reset Files" and select files again.

7. Once you are ready hit the START button. DO NOT DISCONNECT the phone until the firmware download completes.

8.Watch the "Message: window and wait till it shows <1> Close serial port and wait until rebooting.- This usually takes not more than 1-3 minutes.

9. At this point your flashing is complete and the device should be automatically rebooting, once the reboot is complete unplug the USB cable and flick open the Eclair green locking slider ;-)

Congrats !!! Welcome to the delicious ECLAIR club :-)

Issues : 

Google Maps seems to be a bit temperamental (Upgraded to ver 4.0.0 from the new 2.1 Market). Phone has hung a couple of times but nothing really serious.

New Features : 

Multiple Accounts Support
Exchange Support - No Calendar support or GAL lookup.
Camera now has Scene mode, White balance, Color effect
Search across the device including SMS/MMS
HTML5 Support in the browser.
Live Wallpapers
Refreshed UI


Hopefully Samsung will include pinch and zoom in the final release version :-)

Thanks to the guys at :

SIM lock refer to a PIN code lock.

@ HANS

Just remove ur battry from phone for a while, reinsert, put ur mobile in Download mode and flash with earlier firmware.

Plug in your mobile to PC when u selected all files in ODIN. It should appear in ODIN as COM5 or so.. dont bother its getting appear in windows!!!.

Dont use Samdroid kitchen its not ment to work with I570EXXJE1!!

Hi,

I just finished upgrading to the latest Indian firmware i570EDDJC5. The only change I notice is that the QWERTY keyboard is a little fast and has better response when compared to my previous firmware i570EXXJD1. And the disappointing thing is that DDJC5 too does not support live wallpaper. Can someone help me out too enable live wallpaper, please? I have gone through the forum comments section and found an article about this by Riyaz but it did not work out for me. Probably cause of the firmware difference.

I would really appreciate if any can post the actual steps with links to required software.

PS - I have gone through samdroid rooting and live wallpaper post but could not understand the instructions.

Riyaz said...

@ NAWAZ,

Use the following link to download latest samsung firmware for all region.

http://samsung-firmware.webs.com/apps/auth/login?why=pw&try=1&wp=1&next=WEBPROTECT-samsungandroidi5700.htm

@ KARIM,

Which firmware u are trying to upgrade?

@Haydn,

Which firmware u upgraded?

@ CHETAN,

Non of the samsung firmware upgrade comes with Live WallPaper as default!!

You will have to do rooting and then install LiveWallPaperPicker.apk to make it working.

The guideline which I have posted for live wall paper without rooting worked on my mobile very well.

Use the guide from below link to bring livewallpaper working on your mobile.

http://www.greaky.com/2010/02/rooting-other-goodies-on-samsung-galaxy.html#/news/

To get this thing working you should have little bit of programming knowledge to understand commands written. Still this guide is simple to get it working.

Try and let me know your feedback.

Riyaz

Hey Riyaz,

Please advice on how to proceed.

Riyaz said...

@ CHETAN,

Hey Chetan,

Which firmware u r currently on?

Have u downloaded Android SDK? and have u given path in My Computer properties as described in the guide??

It looks ur command is not complete, just copy and paste following commands when u get access to your mobile in SDK.

adb shell mount -o remount,rw,codepage=utf8,vfat,xattr,check=no /dev/stl5 /system

adb shell rm /system/xbin/su

adb shell ln -s /xbin/su /system/xbin/su

adb push init.spica.sh /system/etc/

adb shell chmod 0550 /system/etc/init.spica.sh

adb shell reboot

The rooting procedure works fine with DDJB2 which I am currently on and I suggest you also to flash to DDJB2 as I have tried new firmware like DDJC4 & DDJC5 which occupies more internal memory...

If your path is correct all commands work fine, I just copied and pasted all commands instead typing each of them saperately and in just 5 to 10 seconds I finished with rooting, then I installed LiveWallPapers.apk and all live wall paper worked on my mobile.

Regards,

Riyaz

harsh said...

Hey Sameer,

I tried flashing the spica with the new eclair OS but i guess i did not install the drivers.. my bad.. but i had checked the device manager and it did show up under modems and USB, although it didnt exactly as your's did... and when the phone restarted it was looking for drivers for 'Samsung_Android' for which i tried to direct it to the three drivers provided by you on the link, but it didnt help.. now my phone is hung and shows Samsung with the loading bar complete, but does not go further.. i cant hard reset or even go to the download mode... PLEASE HELP URGENTLY!!!

- Harsh

harsh said...

Hey Sameer,

I was fortunate that my phone agreed to get into the 'Download' mode and I was finally able to load Eclair :)

However I am facing a minor problem and would really appreciate some help.. There are two issues:

1. I am unable to add favourites from my contact list. I select the 'star' next to a contact but that does not help.

2. When I search my contact list it displays results from my email contact list too.. for example if I type 'ha' it will show me phone contacts with 'ha' and also email addresses with 'ha'.. which is quite frustrating..

FYI I have installed Launcher Pro Beta..

Thank you for your time.

Regards,
Harsh

bigbrett said...

hi can anybody help me. i've upgraded to firmware 2.1 on my spica but somehow it's managed to wipe my imei number so i now can't make calls or recive txts. is there anyway of reflashing my imei number

Parth said...

I hv Samsung Galaxy Spica and I want to flash it to 2.1 version but before flashing I want to take backup of contacts.How to take backup of contacts, they r stored in the internal memory and by connecting it with pc suite .i'm not able to access int. memory. I hv around 1300 contacts. Pls help.

harsh said...

Hi Parth,

Download WaveSecure from the android market or by visiting wavesecure.com. You can backup contacts, sms and data.

Cheers,
Harsh

Sameer Prabhakar said...

@ Harsh - once you have "Starred" the contacts .. you can create a widget on one of your screens by selecting "Folders">"Starred Contact"

search - thats the way it works ..

@ Parth - just sync with your google account and you have a backup of your contacts.

harsh said...

Hey Sameer,

Thanks for the reply. However I'd like to clarify that the problem is that I am unable to add more contacts to the favourites! So even though I can create a widget as you said, it still does not have the contacts I wish to be there.

I believe what's happened is that I have (unintentionally and unknowingly) added my gmail account to the contacts and if I select an 'email id' from the list it will allow me to add it to favourites, but if I click on star next to a 'phone contact' it refuses to add it..

Am I doing something wrong here?

- Harsh

PHARMA KANNAN said...

all your contacts will be stored in your gmail account when you sync your phone with your gmail account automatically it will be transferred and stored in your account. after flashing you can sync again and the contacts will automatically come to your phone

carlo said...

shashank said...

Hi,
In the Odin multi downloader, after i have pressed start, the download has got stuck with the message on the odin screen as setup connection. So can someone plz help me immediatly...

shashank said...

Hi,
Can someone plz help me immediatly.
In the Odin multi downloader software, after i pressed start the download has got stuck with the message setup connection & its been 15 mins i am waiting, but its still not downloading.

Riyaz said...

@ SHAHANK

If Odin stopped at Setup Connection means it did not found your mobile on serial connection.

You should see mobile as Serial connection in Odin as Com 5 or 6 or any number, once it appears in Odin it will load software.

Riyaz

Rage said...

i am very much worried... cant save APN settings on 2.1, all reset all setting i thought it might work but it didnt... plz help what should i do?

BaByDoLL said...

I dunno if anyone has asked you this, but how long does it take to flash?

Riyaz said...

@ BABYDOLL

3 TO 4 MINS MAX

Naveen Francis said...

I updated my spica from samsung service center .. with i570EDDJC5
for me GPS is not working ...
can anyone help me ?

Chetan Bhat C said...

Hi,

Finally managed to get Live wallpaper running on my Spica. The steps given by Riyaz did not work for me though as i think the firmware was different. I followed the instruction on http://www.addictivetips.com/mobile/root-samsung-galaxy-spica-i5700-with-leshaks-kernel/ and it worked like piece of cake. After this I even managed to get the newer MOD on to my phone. I now have rooting, app2sd, custom boot logo and animation, new kernel, @315x315 contacts, live wallpaper and many more exiting features. Thanks to LeshaK's Kitchen where you can cook all you need for your Spica. All credits to him and others.

@ CHETAN BHAT C

Good to know u manage to get all features you mentioned in post, just wanted to know which firmware did u upgraded ?? DDJCB, DDJC2 or DDJC4??

I tried once with Lashkesh mod but it didnt worked for me and my mobile kept on rebooting, so I had to revert back to DDJCB.

@ NAWAZ,

Just follow guide from Sameer, it contains all files required to upgrade from 1.5 to 2.1.

bro gps works , i have gone through the same process , u need to go to google map to check ur current gps .... ranchi right

Nawaz said...

hi Riyaz!

sameer has used I5700EDDJB2 to upgrade to 2.1, will this I5700EDDJB2 support my device as i bought it from jeddah and has i5700JXIL3. Am even fed up of this default Arabic language whenever i reset my fone.

Chetan Bhat C said...

Riyaz,

I used the latest Europe firmware. Sorry don’t remember the version but you can have any of the v2.1 above JC3. Follow the instruction from the previous link as the first step. The first boot is very very slow. If you get a blank screen after like 15-20 min, go to ROM recovery mode (Vol down, Call and End keys pressed) and wipe cache and data. This will delete all your setting and push the device to factory but with features of the MOD'd firmware. Reboot the device using the onscreen option. This should bring your device to the home screen. Oh! forgot to mention, backup your setting and data on phone and SD card just to be safe. Then, cook the MOD with required apps from http://forum.samdroid.net/f28/samdroidmod-kitchen-v1-x-x-all-one-en-939/. You would need to register to download. Place the zip on SD card, reboot to recovery and apply the zip.

If you face any problems, samdroid forums should be able to help you. They have solutions to all possible issues. I had few problems myself but managed to solve by some R&D.

Hope this will help you enjoy the interesting features. :)

Regards,
Chetan

pablo said...

hi i have updated to 2.1 latest firmware dont know what it is and have rooted it,my main issue is that my google navigation doesnt find the gps signal does any one else have the same issue

Randy The Elf said...

I have one question.

I have baseband version I570EXXJC1, kernel: 2.6.29 root@SE-S610 #2

I am on T-mobile in Uk, since upgrading I cannot get HSDPA, I get 3g fine but No H on the notification bar, I know I am in a HSDPA area as my old HTC diamond gets it....I am stumped???

Srikanth Kapa said...

Hi Sameer, thanks it worked well, been trying for quite some time.

Additional point that may be useful for others.
- connect the usb cable after starting the ODIN, to ensure that you dont struck up at "setup connection"

Sameer Prabhakar said...

@ Srikanth - Thanks for the valuable TIP, a lot of guys were having the "Setup Connection" issue. I had it too this time!.. I have updated the guide accordingly... :)

Prabu Yuvaraj said...

Hi,

Since most of the new firmware's available are only single files can I use older firmware's Bootloader, CSC and PDA?

Thanks

padfOOt said...

I have downloaded the new firmware I570EDDJC5 for India from http://samsung-firmware.webs.com/WEBPROTECT-samsungandroidi5700.htm

The zip file has only 1 tar file. None of the CSC, PDA, BOOT, PHONE files you have specified. How do I go about it??

pablo said...

padfoot # Select spica_jc3.ops into Select OPS field
# Select tar into Selet Integrate Package – Choose One Package Option field
# Tick the One Package option
# Click Start to start flashing. The timer and progress bar above COM Port Mapping field should start . If the progress bar doesn’t start but the timer continue to run , close Odin and disconnect the phone from PC. Remove and insert the battery and start the phone in download mode again, then run Odin.
# Wait until PASS message appear in Message box and the progress bar box turns into blue.
# At this step, you may get the flashing seems to be failed, and you’ll see exclamation mark appears like image shown below. Don’t worry, this is not the end of your spica, close the Odin and disconnect the phone from PC.

RAFFAELE said...

Hi Sameer,
thanks a lot for sharing your skills because where I live (Guatemala) nobody knows how update the OS and now I can use all the functions of my phone including PC sync and bluetooth file transfer and much more !!

I have only a minor issue: I can't see any of my phonebook contacts but when I search them they appears magically.

I also tried to erase and reload the contact list from the sim card but with no result.

Do you have any idea about this problem ?

Thank you again

I tried it and it works now i could even install CSC file now. Thank you and goodbye and a special thanks to Sameer :)

JR said...

Hey sameer, given how you've helped everyone else on this blog, i thought i'd ask you a favour too! just got a galaxy spica today and given the baseband it even doesn't have access to the android market!!! Details here:

baseband: i5700JXIL3
PDA i5700JPJA2
Kernel 2.6.27
ati1230@SE-S508
cupcake.jpja2

Your flashing guide is self explanatory but the only thing confusing me is which firmware version to download and from where? don't think the one you used will work for me.. please help, cupcake 1.5 sucks and without android market, I'd rather just stick to *ugh* symbian

pavan said...

Hi all,

Did everyone get live wallpapers on ?

Sameer,
I couldn't flash my i5700 from my Vista OS. But shifted the same set of files to an XP machine, it went well.

Your note about the Device manager check showed up an issue in Vista:
The device drivers showed when the phone is connected normally. The moment you put it in the Download Mode, the device divers disappear leaving only an "Unknown Device" in the USB listing.

This could be the hurdle on Vista. But on XP all worked like a charm!

Thanks!!

Mayuresh said...

Hi John,

I tried the Rogers in Canada firmware, it is specifically for T1 mobile users, not meant for Euro or Asia or any other.

Nawaz said...

frns give me a link to download xls viewer for i5700.

Tiklu said...

Hi Sameer,first of all thank you for such a nice post. I did followed your post and was been able to upgrade my spica to android 2.1 but it was neither allowing me to make a call or access the net. So I did some searching and found that i need to upgrade to I570EDDJC5. I did the upgrade. Now my mobile is accessing the net but still I cannot make/receive a call or send/recive a sms from it.
When I did the first flushing (using the firmware in the link of your mobile) I checked all the 4 checkboxes which appears when you click on the debug only option. Next when I did upgrade to the firmware mentioned above I did only checked the debug only option and nothing else. Also when i checked the mobile status. It is not showing the IMEI number in it. Could this be the issue?

Ahmad said...

Anyone has a 2.1 upgrade for baseband i5700XXK2? I need so bad

do u know where we can buy case for samsung i5700 ? in samsung counter they only have black and white colour only :(

John said...

Hello All,

Today on Samsung.ca they hove provided the update to 2.1 (via kies mini download)

I, like many have used the versions provided here to update early. Now that I am trying to update to the legit version, I am running into some troubles.

When I connect to kies, it recognizes my phone as GT-i5700 and Firmware version of "Unregistered device".

I am supposed to start the process by clicking on the PHONE UPGRADE button, however it is greyed out.

If anyone else has run into this, please let me know what will get around this so I can enjoy 2.1 again.

Mayuresh said...

Hi All,

If Android Froyo can be installed on a iPhone y can't it be installed on the samsung device itself.

Froyo has hit the market & Spica is nowhere sensing the upgrade.

pavan said...

@Fredrik,
1. disconnect your phone remove battery and put on, switch on to download mode
2. connect to usb and check device manager if drivers are properly installed as in the article.
3. disconnect usb from phone.
4. start Odin, setup files to be flashed with.
5. connect usb to mobile.
6. if Odin detects your device start flashing, else repeat from step 1

some times it doesn't happen on the first go. Try atleast 5 times before giving up or googling for more solutions.

Fredrik B said...

@Sameer

Thanks, got it right now. Just skipped the cache file option and it worked fine :D

Even tho the 2.1 seems to use more of the cpu than 1.5... But, hey it works! It only took me bout 6 hours to figure...

Baz said...

I got the same as finalmoksha. cache.rfs error. When I omitted the CSC file the flash went well. Looks cool a little bit sluggish I would say though.

Hi guys need some advise I successfully upgrade my phone to dxjc4 firmware I'm having problem with the sounds and display setting I can't get rid the audible sound in key pad and it also vibrate. Can anyone experience this problem?

Simon said...

I have followed all instructions but when phone resets I get a box with arrow possibly meaning unpacking on my phone screen then I get a phone with a exclimation mark and triangle next to it no pc on screen.

Whats happened?

Hamza said...

I have tried severally to install the drivers for the usb but cannot connect............ When i check the device manager, it written Other Device - Samsung_Android........ I'm usng Windows 7 32-bit.
I'm really want to update my I5700, so please if one can help.......

Riyaz said...

@ STA00

Flash to other firmware version it will solve your problem.

@ SIMON

Reflash to DDJB2 firmware and u will get through it.

@ HAMZA

First install samsung pc suit on your laptop and then connect your phone to it, it should get detected.

Once it appeares in device manager then flash to required firmware.

Milorad said...

Thanks, what else to say :) Well at least to advise people not to use Samsung Kies, Kies mini or New PC Studio for updating because it just doesn't work... Btw I used I570EXXJD1 firmware and it works fine. Thanks again, you made my Spica more interesting!

Insomnia said...

Thank you so much, the hardest part was to install the drivers.
I am using Windows 7, so the OS automatically installed drivers, i opened device manager and the two Samsung devices were shown properly. After that i unplugged the USB cable and plugged it again. The second time it showed me that the device is unknown... I took out the battery and put the phone in Download Mode, again. Now the devices were shown properly, so i instantly opened Odin application and everything went fine.
So i guess if you have Windows 7 don't unplug the phone after it installs the drivers, just open Odin.
Thank you one more time :)

Hamza said...

Thnx you very much guys especially Sameer............ Finally updated ma phone to 2.1(Eclair)

My phone is rebooting automatically every now and then. It has rebooted about 40-50 times since yesterday

Boka-Bhoot said...

Hi Sameer.

Thanks for the guide, I used it to root my phone some 6 months ago.

Recently, I am having a problem.

when I connect the phone using USB, the notification icon is not connecting.

I have all the drivers installed, but the computers(already tried on 4-5 pcs and laptops) simply dont recognise the phone is connected.

I even tried to attach the USB in the download mode, hoping to install android 2.2 but the phone is still not recognized.

please tell me what should I do.

Evann Ventry said...

Doggeh said...

Hi Sameer,
Why do all my downloads fail with Eclair? Everytime I install an app, they say download unsuccessful after a few seconds.
thanks

Doggeh said...

Hi Sameer,
Why do my downloads of Eclair fail? They always say download unsuccessful after I attempt to download a new app.
Thanks

Sangram said...

Hey,

Thanks for your step by step procedures.... i have installed Eclair on my Spica and its working very well from past 2 months... however some times i have to reboot to get my GPRS working... when i go to my APN settings i see balnk, when i try to type it manually at times it works... but most of the times it does not. Is there a proper solution for this one?

ℐ𝒮ℳ𝒜 said...

Hi, Sameer

I followed your flash guiding and it’s worked.

And my Spica was updated to Eclair.
But, the problem is, when I restart my Spica, there is a sentence “cannot find jpg or png”

And all data such as SMS, contact, and account are lost.

And, when I start my Spica the download mode is raise up before booting.

Can You explain what happend? :)
I use I570EDXJC4 firmware and new .ops file as recommended.

My Spica was Eclair, but I can not enjoy it :)

Fenrir767 said...

Hey thanks for the Guide I managed to Flash the phone a few times except each time the market seems to be broken and after I re insert my sd card I can't download any new apps any suggestions?

Dror said...

Hey, I guess I am way behind.
But maybe you or any one else an Assist me.

I tried to flash my Spica, and everything worked just as you mention, it just that when I was done, my phone was stuck on the first screen (Samsung with the upload Bar),
And every time I am restarting it the Bar is getting filled, finish and then the Phone is stuck.

Did you, or any one came across with this one?

Does any one has any Idea how to solve that?

Thanks

Hey Sameer. I was wondering if this would work for the sister model the Behold 2 T939UVJA3 running system 1.5. If so i just need to know how to access the download mode, the method you suggested doesnt seem to work. Thank you

Slicinarie said...

Hey Sameer. I would like to know if this quide is good for the sister model the Behold 2 T939UVJA3 running Android 1.5. If it is that would be great. Im also having trouble with accessing the Download mode the way listed here. If there is any difference in the process please let me know. Thank you.

Manish Sharma said...

Thanks Sameer for such a nice post.
This is regarding the GPRS problem i also faced and get it working on my phone:-
1. Ask for your service provider for the APN Settings (if you are able to save it if not got to step 2).
2. Do it manually
a. Go to
Settings->Wireless & Networks ->Moble Networks -> Access Point Names
b. Click options and Add New APN
c. In my case (With airtel GPRS)
Name - MO
APM - airtelgprs.com
d. save the options.

enjoy the GPRS ...
I do not needed below steps as in my case it works as it is but still as per told by the service provider i am mentioning it here just in case you might need :-
3. Shutdown your phone
4. remove and insert the SIM again.
5. Restart it

With this your APN widget will also work well.

Thanks

Manish Sharma said...

Thanks Sameer for such a nice post.
I also faced the GPRS problem and able to solve it as below:-

1. Ask for your service provider for GPRS settings and save it if you can
(I am not able to save as my OS doesnt support and i think it will be same in your case).
2. Do it manually
a. go to settings->Wireless & Networks -> Mobile Networks -> Access Point Names
b. click options button (left side)
Add APN
c.Select the APN (In my case airtel gprs)
Name - MO
APN - airtelgprs.com
save the settings
d. Select your APN.

Enjoy GPRS
In my case it works from here
whereas few more steps just in case:-
3. shutdown , remove and insert your SIM card again.
4. Restart

Thanks

I had a weird problem. When I tried to reset my phone to factory defaults I kept seeing the "com.android.phone has stopped unexpectedly" error message. I tried a lot of things but in vain.
I then disabled the screen pattern lock and I was able to reset the phone.
Thought I would share this for people facing similar issues.
