How to flash CyanogenMod 10.1.0 on GT-I9000

  1. The first guideline we prepared for you should go down as shown here: download Gapps zip from here and (file name: cm-10.1.0-galaxysmtd.zip) on your computer. Then leave the archive files as they are, don’t use an unzipping tool to extract their content.
  2. Now get to the next step in our guide asking you to do as follows: take the Galaxy S GT-I9000 and your laptop, then use the USB cord of the former to connect it to the notebook.
  3. As soon as the two devices are glued to one another, you need to do the following: copy the zip files from their original location and then send them to the SD card root of the I9000. Once the end of the transfer is near, you will have to unplug the handset from the PC and then turn the handset off.
  4. After you power it on again, you need to boot it into Recovery Mode by pressing + holding Volume Up, Home and Power at the exact same time; you will arrive in the Recovery Mode after you see the recovery screen.
  5. Now do the following: opt for Backup & Restore, then make a full NANDroid backup (in case yo haven’t already).
  6. When done, choose this option from the Recovery screen: Factory Reset/Wipe Data; confirm the selection, then choose Install zip from memory card and opt for Choose zip from memory card. Look for the CM 10.1.0 Stable zip, confirm its flashing and after that wait for the flashing to be over.
  7. [sc name=”banner-jos”]If it is, then opt for Choose zip from memory card, locate the Gapps zip this time around and confirm its flashing, as well. After the packages are on the phone, you should go back to the Recovery screen.
  8. After you arrive in that spot, you have to choose the system restarting option and have patience till the boot ends. Now that the latter action is over, you should go to your Google account and enter your personal info there; do that as soon as you spot the firmware’s home screen.

In case the boot needs over 5 minutes to end, you have to do this: take the battery out of the Galaxy S I9000, then put it back in and re-do the guide from this part onward: “After you power it on again, you need to boot it into Recovery Mode (…)”. This solution should be applied in case the handset has to deal with a boot loop. Afterwards restart the phone into the custom recovery.
