In this guide, you will learn How to Install / Flash Android Marshmallow On Samsung Galaxy S I9000 via OmniROM (android 6.0).The First ever Galaxy device gets Android Marshmallow Update.We know it’s not official, but as we all know something is always better than nothing.So if you still have the Galaxy S I9000 then it’s time to Install Android Marshmallow On Samsung Galaxy S I9000.Just follow the step by step guide given below.

Samsung Galaxy S was released in 2010 and this is the first galaxy phone.Galaxy S made Samsung very popular in the android community.The phone has a great dev support.That’s the reason after more than 5 years, still the device is getting latest ROMs.The device has been receiving unofficial Android jellybean, Kitkat, lollipop and now Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

This Omni Marshmallow ROM is in Alpha stage.It is not stable and we don’t recommend users to use it as a daily driver. However, if you like to test Android 6.o Marshmallow  on your Galaxy S I9000 than this is the best way to do it.

This Omni ROM is developed By sooti, Senior Member from Xda.this is the first release of the ROM so there will be bugs but we are sure in future updates everything will be fixed.Below we share bugs list

Working:

  • RIL
  • Wifi
  • BT
  • Sensors
  • Camera (use third party such as open camera
  • Internal SD (using data partition for now since we need to add a commit to emulate the full storage partition)
  • Audio + vibrate
  • buttons (except home to wake, I need to add that but it does go to home screen, just use power to wake for now)
  • USB storage (Make sure you disable debug mode when you use it since it causes issues mounting it sometimes)

Not Working:

  • GPS (need to update something in the blob apparently for 6.0)
  • SELINUX (disabled for now until I add permissions but its low on my priority right now)
  • tons of smaller things, feel free to comment about device issues so I can add it (Omni stuff don’t count, so please don’t add those, instead open a bug with them)

    Hi! After all it works quite well, but the home screen (icon background) remain
    black , not transparent. After a try with “Build Prop Editor.app” to change “ro.config.low_ram”
    from ”true” to “ false” nothing change and the icon background is still
    black. Any suggestion will be great appreciated.
