Android 2.2.3 Froyo (Mod+X => SpicagenMod RC1) – Samsung GALAXY SPICA I5700

This blog post has been published on 2011-02-01 and may be out of date.

I will publish my work (files) here because different forums all over the world use it and I have to update all the posts so that everybody find out that there is a new version of “Mod + X” (SpicagenMod) | here you can get more infos & help from the “Samdroid.Net”-Commuity -> [Dev] SpicagenMod BETA3 & HELPDESK + FAQs + HOW-TO GUIDES


Current version: Mod+X => SpicagenMod RC1


[stextbox id=”alert” caption=”Warning”]Even if this update should have worked for me without problems, I can not guarantee that this will work for you, so you maybe create a backup of your files before the installation![/stextbox]



If you are updating from any other Android-Version than Froyo (2.2) do wipe data/cache BEFORE installing SGM.
1. Push it to your SDcard, go to recovery and apply pushed file.
2. After complete boot make reboot one more time!

This update won’t wipe your data!

If you have already installed Android 2.2 Froyo -> appy the “Mod + X” via Recovery :) otherwise or if you will have a “clean install” …

1.) Odin + spica_jc3“I570EXXJH6.tar” 

1.1) install driver 
1.2) start Odin, select new files + “spica_jc3.ops” 

1.3) do not connect Spica with you pc -> press “quieter+camera+hang” to boot in the download-mode 

1.4) connect Spica with your pc -> start odin-update

2.) Odin + spica_jc3“i5700_LK2-08_PDA.tar” 

3.) press “quieter+call+hang” -> “Wipe” -> “Wipe data/cache”

4.) Recovery: apply zip-file

Battery Calibration

1.1) Battery Calibration? -> “Calibration needs to be done after flashing a new ROM, but you can calibrate any time you think your battery is miscalibrated. This program does it by removing the batterystats.bin system file. The OS generates a new clean batterystats file soon, thus any fake information from the previous ROM is removed.
It’s suggested, but not necessary, to let the phone fully discharge after calibration, then charged to 100% without break.” 

1.2) Battery Calibration! -> “If anyone has a battery drain after an update/kernel change, wipe batterystats via recovery. At first, charge your phone to 100% when it’s on. turn it off and connect the charger again. Wait till the battery on the screen says “battery fully charged”. Disconnect the charger & reboot directly into the recovery and wipe the batterystats.” 

PS: maybe you can also try this App for calibrate your battery -> Easiest way i found to calibrate my battery

2.) More Battery Life Out of Your Android
What do you do when your battery is about to die …??

2.1) Use the Power Widget to Easily Toggle GPS, Bluetooth, Wireless, and Screen Brightness

2.2) 3G – requires a lot of power, so you can choose “2G Only” 

2.3) Backlight – adjust the backlight to be less bright (Settings –> Display –> Brightness)

2.4) Wi-Fi – disable Wi-Fi when you don’t need it

2.5) Bluetooth – disable Bluetooth when you don’t need it

2.6) GPS – disable GPS when you don’t need it

2.7) Disable Apps that Sync Constantly

For example you can use the “k-9”-Email App instead of the built-in Email application and activate the Push technology from “k-9” to get you mails. 

2.8) Background-Apps

Try the OS Monitor-App to see how much resources your running Apps consume!!!

But also other background-apps like twitter, facebook etc. can reduce the battery-time, so you can change the Update-Interval (Settings –> Background Updates) or try e.g. “MinFreeManager”-app or “SSSwitch” and configure the kernel settings to kill background-apps without installing a app for killing apps BUT this will reducing the multitasking features from your phone! 

2.9) More general Information

-> Complete Guide to Maximizing Your Android Phone’s Battery Life – How-To Geek

3) Battery Manager Apps

Maybe you can also try a Battery Manager App, but I don’t need/use it and if you try the above tips I think you will also not need it 
– “SuperPower
– “JuiceDefender
