Has anyone had a problem doing a restore after the update?
Kies updated and the install went ok, did a factory reset before and after but when I'm trying to manually restore files, Kies just grey's out and doesn't respond?

Well to every one on stock Vodafone I hope they send a update out as your missing out on a very nice Rom
Samsung have done very well and the changes are Nice.
Even my son is jealous, I now have some phones from his school one from a teacher
One new feature was the alarm clock, Much easier to turn off
the app draw now has Folders just like the S2
I have a lot of apps and it took some finger swiping to get to the app I wanted not any more
adding widgets has changed with a nice menu
I would put some screen shots on but that future is turned off on some menus will post some with my DSLR later
If Vodafone are no longer going to offer any more roms then I would de brand after your contract has ended as it would be a good selling point for the phone

Have to agree NDJ, my battery life also improved, after installing the new rom have had about 40 hours between charge, thats moderate use and only second charge, am hoping it will settle down a bit more after a few full charges then discharges.
It will it can take a couple of days to settle down
well got the official news this morning
Samsung starts Rolling out the first Value packs Updates (VPU) to the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 devices.
The Update is currently Available for Europe and Korea through OTA or via Samsung Kies and will Roll-out to other countries soon. The Value pack will make your Galaxy S Faster, smoother and uses some Android 4.0 features adapted inside it, such as the Facelock.
Read more here
any one not done the upgrade take a look there are some screen shots
The face rec works to find it tho is not easy its in the password section
But its all good stuff

Yes i have also updated mine, using Kies, i only updated to 2.3.5 a couple of weeks a go so hadn't got it fully loaded yet, so i thought what the hell.
Glad i did, its so ast smooth and the battery life is much better, and the auto rotate seems faster. I did the factory reset before and after and didn't have any issues with Kies ( for a change).
The photo editor is very good and the camera seems a lot better in poor lighting or was i less drunk than usual lol
The only thing i haven't managed to get working is the facial recognition screen unlock....anyone else got this working is it anygood?

Nice to see you here again...
Congratulations on a successful update.
Regarding Face Unlock it's pretty much a gimmick, and one that got annoying very quickly
If you want to use it though, the best thing is to take about five or six pictures from different angles of your face. Then the phone will recognise you much quicker.

How are you?
Just wanted to wind my other half up really lol. But it doesn't come on just reverts back to swipe to. I know i probably won't keep it on lol.
I just followed your instruction from last time and did it sweet as a nut. I have good mentors
