Android’s latest version, Ice Cream Sandwich, is the hottest and most-craved-for version of Android these days. Even owners of earlier Android devices such as the Galaxy S crave for it. Unfortunately, it seems that Samsung Galaxy S owners still have to stick to what they have because reports are saying that the official ICS upgrade will not reach the Samsung Galaxy S until 2012. With this disappointing news, all who want to get some taste of ICS on their Samsung Galaxy S turn their attention to developers.
You don’t have to wait until 2012 to get some Ice Cream Sandwich on your Samsung Galaxy S because the guys at GalnetMIUI have just released a MIUI version built upon the Ice Cream Sandwich framework. If you still don’t know about this development, the ROM for Galaxy S I9000 has already been released.
By following the steps below, you can install the Ice Cream Sandwich build with MIUI for the Galaxy S I9000. Just follow the simple instructions below carefully and make sure you don’t skip any step.
You can now enjoy Ice Cream Sandwich running on your Samsung Galaxy S I9000, thanks to the guys at GalnetMIUI who made this possible. The installation process is a bit too complicated for those who have no experience in rooting their phones, so the advice is to have someone to do it for you because you might end up bricking your phone, or wait for the for ICS update for your phone.

Where do you think any bricking problems might occur? Any particular steps to watch out for?
Hi… I’m eager to know whether this MIUI ICS ROM have anything which doesn’t work… Coz, I’ve read about other ROMs where some of the functions doesn’t work…
Moreover, please let me know whether I must need to install and root Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread XXJVS firmware or not???
My configuration as of now is:
Model Number: GT-I9000
Firmware version: 2.3.5
Baseband version: I9000XXJVT
Kernel version: 22.214.171.124-I9000XXJVT-CL617736 stratosk@semaphore
Build number: JellyBeanRom JVT Final
Hand Crafted by: Team Obssessed Crew
So far my config is giving me the best result as I have gone through many updates… Only having problem with the SNS setting of facebook by the built in “social hub”. Every other functions are flawless… Even I have lockscreen menu where I get to choose more than 12 lock screen and also have Dock settings.
I again request you to let me know whether my device is better or your ROM… Only then I will decide what to do next…
Thanks in advance…
Fahim’s Galaxy… :)

Hi thnx for the gr8 efforts, just a correction at step 13, the zip contains the TAR file, so i needed to extract it..the process failed though.. it gets stuck at logo screen.. anyways thnx!
What an awsome ROM!!!! It works great on my I9000M (actually I9000 after installing custom 2.3.5 JVT).
I just recommend to everybody that wants to try out this ROM to follow these steps:
1. Install a custom Gingerbread ROM, it could be JVT or the JVS posted in here. After this, install CWM recovery, it could installed if you flash the kernel darkcore 4.1 JVT or 4.0 JVS or by rooting your phone with chain fire with the procedure showed in here by Ken.
2. Do a total wipe of your phone and then install via CWM Recovery the ROM MIUI 1.12.9 or 1.12.26 from http://www.miuiandroid.com
3. Now you can install (without doing any kind of wipe) Galnet MIUI 2.11.26
4. Enjoy this great ROM!!!
Note: DO NOT WIPE ANYTHING after installing MIUI 1.12.9 and before installing Galnet MIUI because you will have the boot loop problem getting stucked at the MIUI logo screen.
What I mentioned in this post worked for me, I hope it works for you.

Stuck in boot loop on installing MIUI ROM! no way forward
Hi, thanks for this.
Have a question though. Installed this and all was fine but now I want to revert back to the old “standard” OS for my phone that was from Samsung. Thing is this has no support for the FM.Radio tuner that was in the old one.
Can you help me or at least point me in the right direction as too where I can find help for this?
