HOW To Flash:

ATENTION! : I am not responsible of any issues you might have by using my guide. Flashing always includes a risk of bricking your device. Dont come to cry. You've been warned! 

The firmwares(roms) are here Link

-Download ODIN Multidownloader 4.43. Link: ODIN LINK
-After it has downloaded, extract it anywhere u want (i suggest desktop, easier)
-Power off your phone.
-Put your phone into downloading mode. Hold together: Power+Volume Down+Home (phone boots to Downloading mode)
-Connect your phone to PC via USB cable. 
-Wait for the drivers to install. After that, in ODIN, one of the top line "bars" should turn yellow and some text should appear there.
-Download the AriesVE.ops file and check it as OPS.Link to download
-Then check the 'one package' from the top left 
-The ROM you've downloaded, check it as one package. If it's MD5 file. Then click flash.
-Flashing will take about 9 minutes. 
-When you see "Close serial port and wait until rebooting" in odin, you can unplug your phone.
-If the flashing doesn't complete. Or you face some other problems, just try another USB port, or computer if possible

NOTE: If the ROM includes several files you should check them all. For example XXKP4 2.3.4 Rooted, screen shot: 

All about:

Download Mode

Download mode is used to flash new ROM or custom ROM firmware. 
To enter download mode, turn off the phone and then hold down Volume Down + Home + Power.
If done properly within 1-2 seconds you should see a screen with the green Android robot and the writing "Downloading... Do not turn off target!"
Pressing Power for at least 8 seconds will reboot the phone.

Recovery Mode
Recovery mode is used to install system updates in form of update.zip files (such as the one for rooting your phone), performing a factory reset and wiping the cache.

If done properly, the phone will show the SAMSUNG and Galaxy S Plus screens and then end up at the "Android out of the box screen". Now press Menu to enter recovery mode.To enter recovery mode, turn off the phone, connect the USB cable, and then hold down Volume Up + Power.
The options for actually performing recovery when something is wrong with your phone are very limited with the stock recovery that comes preinstalled on your phone. 


On Windows, flashing is performed using the freely available ODIN Multi-Downloader tool.
Version 4.43 should be used.
  • Make sure you have the appropriate USB drivers by installing the latest version of Samsung Kies If Kies recognizes your phone, the USB drivers are working. Close Kies.
  • Download and install ODIN Multidownloader 4.43
  • Run Odin as Administrator (right-click on icon -> "run as Administrator")
  • Power off your phone and boot it into download mode by simultaneously pressing Volume Down + Home + Power
  • Connect the phone to your PC via USB. Odin will now recognize your phone and a small box under COM Port Mapping should turn yellow and the text log should show "Detected!!!"
  • In the "Select OPS" section provide the following file: AriesVE.ops
  • Unzip/unrar the ROM you are flashing. If it's passworded, the password usually is samfirmware.com
  • If it's a single .tar.md5 file, check the option "One Package" in Odin and then load the .tar.md5 file using the One Package button at the very bottom. Odin will load it and check the MD5 checksum.
  • If your ROM consists of several .smd files, load the MODEM file with the PHONE button, the PDA file with the PDA button and the CSC file under with the CSC button. Load the Boot_loader.tar with the BOOT button.
    • Boot_loader.tar -> BOOT
    • MODEM.smd -> PHONE
    • PDA.smd -> PDA
    • CSC.smd -> CSC
  • Start flashing by hitting the Start button. Make absolutely sure the flash procedure is not interrupted. If it is taking longer than you expected or seems stuck, do not panic and do not interrupt it.
  • Flashing should take ca. 5-10 minutes for a full ROM. The phone will reboot. Wait and make sure it has booted successfully, then close Odin and disconnect the USB cable.
A lot of Odin-related problems during flashing seem to occur because of USB port problems. If you are having problems, try a different USB port and ideally try it on another PC as well. Other things to try are to flash with or without external SD card inserted and with or without SIM card inserted.
The AriesVE.ops is a textfile containing the partition order for the I9001.

ROM parts

ROMs are split into following parts:
  • BOOT - The bootloader that initializes the phone and loads Android. This part is the most critical, if a faulty bootloader is written to your phone, it will be bricked.
  • PDA - The Android operating system including the Linux kernel, libraries, frameworks and system apps
  • MODEM/PHONE - This part holds firmware drivers for the most important hardware parts of your phone: GSM, WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS etc...
  • CSC - Carrier Customization, contains regional settings for by your carrier like keyboard localisations or internet APN settings. In rare cases flashing a ROM from a different region like Asia will not have the settings you need and you will have to manually enter your APN configuration.
Each part is provided as a .smd file, which is a custom tar-like archive used by Samsung. Each part can also be (re-)flashed individually. Alternatively so-called "one package" ROMs are provided as a single .tar.md5 file containing the .smds, which is a regular tar archive appended with its md5 hash.
MODEM/PHONE is independent of the OS contained in the PDA, making it possible to mix-and-match MODEM and PDA versions from different ROMs, sometimes jokingly referred to as "FrankenROM". This can be useful for example if a specific MODEM version has drivers that conserve the battery better. Currently the I9001 MODEM reported with the longest battery life is the one included in the 2.3.4 XXKP4 ROM.
