I have another problem though - I am on Virgin mobile, but on SlimRom, the galaxy S only sees the bell network, not Virgin (when I do a scan, I can see Bell, Rogers, and one called 302220 which I assume is Telus/Koodo). I know Bell and Virgin run on the same network, but my old android phone used to say Virgin and not bell. An I connected to the virgin mobile network? WIll I be charged roaming if it says bell?

Thanks for the guide. I followed it to root and unlock my phone. After that, it gets really confusing for a noob like me.
I followed this guide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nb-x...hannel&list=UL
It was really simple to follow and not screw it up.
Edit: Looks like my GPS is not working

Got mine running ICS now from the howto on the xda site.
Unfortunately, perkas site is down, so I have no modem installed, so no signal. lol

well, that was sort of fun, the first time I did it, /efs was full and i couldnt restore my files.
So I used odin to reflash to froyo, used kies to get back to gb, and now back to slimICS with a working modem and working efs.
I think you have to restore your EFS as soon as you can. at least thats what I did the second time.
edit: now that things are working good, I like slimICS so far, as fast, if not faster than gb.

seriously, you all have working GPS?
I didn't restore my EFS, everything's working but the GPS
Here's my setup, I have no idea what I should do next. I don't even know if the GPS was working before all this.

I get like 5+ locks in a matter of seconds now if I'm outside. This with no GPS tweaks except for whatever slimics had in its default. But I have read elsewhere GPS can be flake.. good luck

I fixed my GPS problem
Long story short, I want back to stock rom and it wasn't working properly either
Finally I ended up with:
Modem: UGKC1 (I'm on Bell)
ROM: DarkyRom 11
Kernel: Semaphore 1.2.5s
All that was probably unrelated.
I edited to etc\gps.conf file as described in here
You really need to change the file permission to <rw-r--r--> for it to work.
EDIT: more info on my fix here

I just wanted to let RFD members know that this program can sometimes be used to get a sift-bricked phone into download mode:
I had a problem with a T-Mobile T959 and it got me into download mode so I could flash a stock bootloader and Froyo.
