I don't really want to offer advice regarding middle eastern phones but if you want android market then more than likely you will have to flash anywhere else other than Chinese and Arab firmware.
Before you flash your phone with different firmwares it may be worth backing up some vital information. Root your phone so you can back up it's entire state, I think CWM allows you to do this. An app called Nitrality will back up your /EFS Folder (IMEI details).
I would also type *#1234# to find out what firmware I'm on and check with SamMobile.com to see if there is M.Eastern firmware to download in case anything goes wrong.
Just make sure that if you download firmware it's for your model phone (there are 5 or so different Galaxys).
That's the problem. I updated the phone with different firmware before i backup the information
My phone is GT-I9000
I updated the phone to 2.3.4 GINGERBREAD.XXJVP
The official version was 2.2 FROYO.J something (I want to know how to know the rest of the J)
Rooting will make me lose the warranty of the phone, and I want to know what is its advantages and its disadvantages?
Thanks in advance

The only alternative I could think of would be to push apps from Android Market on the web (PC) to your phone.
Are you able to use AppBrain and GetJar as market place's instead?
When I download the firmware from Sammobile, I opened the rar file but its locked with a password.
Do u know the password?
The password is on the page where you downloaded the firmware,...or was.
Usually one of the first 2
Help please..... I have just updated with file I9000XWJVZ|2.3.6|OXA|November 2011... Know my phone want boot up.
Go to recovery menu and factory reset or flash the firmware again.
