I'm a newbie.
My current phone status is:
Firmware : 2.3.3
Baseband Version : I9000SRJV1
Kernel Version : 188.8.131.52-I9000XWJVN-CL366455
Build Number : GINGERBREAD.XWJVN
The Samsung site (and KIES) tell me that this is all up to date.
There seems to be an enormous number of unofficial upgrades available. Most appear to need the phone to be rooted.
My questions are:
1. Is there somewhere that explains what all the version numbers above mean?
2. How to safely root my phone?
3. What is the difference in upgrading ROM and firmware?
4. What upgrades are worth doing?
Any help appreciated.
