what may be the problem and solution when you are installing any application download and you are told that the jar files did not match?


The binary edition of Ant is shipped with 3 different compression formats:

  1. .zip - Recommended compression format for Windows, can also be used on other platforms. Supported by many programs and some operating systems natively.
  2. .tar.gz - Uses the tar program to gather files together, and gzip to compress and uncompress.
  3. .tar.bz2 - Uses the tar program to gather files together, and bzip2 to compress and uncompress..
Choose the format that is best supported for your platform.

Can you upgrade Samsung Galaxy Tab OS 2.2 to OS 2.3?


Procedure to update Samsung Galaxy S with Gingerbread 2.3 version:

Before we proceed to the updating process, please note that your phone needs to be rooted because your current file system must be converted to EXT4 which can be done with the help of latest version of Voodoo Lag fix. Also you need to backup all your data as there is a high probability that you may lose data after the updation. And also you must have Busybox in your device.

  • Now, you need to copy the file system-dump-as-root.tar.gz on the root of your SD card after which you will have to run these commands,

adb shell
su
cd /data
mkdir gingerbread
cd gingerbread
busybox tar zxvf /sdcard/system-dump-as-root.tar.gz
mkdir data
busybox cp -a /efs efs
sync
reboot download

  • After this it is time to unzip nsonsgs.tar.zip to nonsgs.tar
  • Now, you will have to flash the kernel with ODIN client with NO PIT and NO Repartition selected. And this is it, Your Galaxy S will now run the Gingerbread 2.3 version. At any point of time if you wish to move back to the Froyo update then you just need to flash it again with the froyo ROM back by using the Odin but before that make sure that it must support the EXT4 file system or else your device may become unusable.
