The newly leaked firmware UCLB3 of Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread is now available for owners of the Samsung Infuse 4G to grab. While there are still no ICS OTA updates rolling out for the Samsung Infuse 4G, this firmware will do the trick for the mean time.
It’s not Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, sadly, but since the latter is still not yet out for the Infuse 4G, this latest version of Gingerbread is something that you could try for now while waiting for ICS.
Leaked firmware UCLB3 is an official build from Samsung. So, you can practically use this to bring your phone back to stock firmware. This can come in handy if you encounter problems like getting stuck in a boot loop while flashing new ROMs.
There are two ways to install this firmware: through Odin3 or Heimdall Suite.
Requirements will vary, depending on which of the two methods you wish to use.
As always, use this guide at your own risk. We shall not be liable for any catastrophe occurring on your phone or to you because of your use of this guide.
Congratulations! You have successfully updated your AT&T Samsung Infuse 4G SGH-I997 to Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread firmware build UCLB3 via Odin3 or Heimdall Suite.

malicious site waring from NIS for the odin link, whats with that?
Try this download source: Odin3 v1.7 and see if NIS still complains. Also, the instructions did mention temporarily disabling security suites (e.g., antivirus, firewalls, and the like) because those can interfere in the procedure. Certain security programs do report Odin as a false positive. For what it’s worth, I downloaded the file from the link in the article and scanned it with Avast and ClamAV. No virus found.
If you have a rooted phone and upgrade using the Heimdall Suite, will the phone still be rooted after the upgrade to 2.3.6?
Thank you for noting my work of putting the SGH-i997 UCLB3 on the Heimdall 1click package. This was put together using Adam Outler’s 1 click software distribution method and my time of putting it together and testing.
It would be nice to get credit for it.
Re-directing users back to the original site and credit those who have contributed to the process would be nice. Bypassing that and directing users to my servers is kinda odd.
Heimdall does’nt detect my device, i’ve rooted the device, what should i do……please reply
i can’t get this to work. are the samsung device drivers really necessary because they won’t install on my laptop
Don’t know just why, but I ran Kies mini tonight 4-4-2012 and it said there was an update available to download on my Samsung Infuse …. so I clicked through the paces, and sure enough I now have fermware version 2.3.6 …. and Baseband version I997UCLB3 …. and Build number GINGERBREAD.UCLB3 Everything works, I’m happy camper tonight.
I did the same also on 4.4.2012 and now on 2.3.6, but my phone is not going into USB debugging mode, so i went back to 2.2.1. You should check your phone to see if it gets into debug mode
is it same procedure to update unlocked samsung infuse 4G ?

Ken East, Sir why not provide the user with a link to the source via XDA for installation, instead of trying to list it here? Two fold, one the users are provided with accurate installation instructions, two they can ask if required for assistance via the source. Great write but misleading on the instructions….
Just followed these directions for the Odin3… so far so good… at least I can get some of the updated apps now, until I get my new phone in September.
I can not get into download mode. then appears “add”.
when I connect the phone the system starts, shows “add”, and when you click on start, it complains:
Enter CS for MD5..
Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
I997UCLB3-Homebinary.tar.md5 is valid.
Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
Odin3 i went through the procedure 3 or 4 times.
but the added never showed in the message box
