[i9000] Flashing CyanogenMod for Beginners

UPDATE (2011-11-27): After flashed to CyanogenMod and tested for a few days, I think that CyanogenMod is GREAT, i9000 users should just flash to it since Samsung firmware support for i9000 isn't that great, and slow. :)


The guide can be found from wiki.cyanogenmod.com. But its not complete with all the downloadables, there are few missing steps.

1. Installing the ClockworkMod Recovery

Prerequisites:
Before you begin, follow Step 1 & Step 2 from CyanogenMod to get the drivers installed.

Downloadables & Installation Guide



2. Root your Phone

There are few options to root your phone.

I used CF-Root and it worked.

Just a small note, if Odin cannot detect the phone, you can always reinstall the driver by running Kies device troubleshoot.


3. Flashing CyanogenMod

Finally, follow the Flashing CyanogenMod - Method via Recovery guide to flash to CyanogenMod.

Small note, you might get into "bootloop", but no worries, its simple to restore by following this guide.





Hope that helps the CyanogenMod beginners (like me) to get started.
