    Samsung Continuum SCH-I400 Gingerbread EG04 ROM.

    Hardware Version: I400.0.6
    Firmware Version: 2.3.3
    Baseband Version: S:i400.0.6V.EG04
    Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7gf36e7e1-dirty
    Build Number: SCH-I400.EG04

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I was told this was a release for the continuum that "never made it" out of development. I have been running this for about a week now, and must say, it is a little nicer than froyo. I have noticed a slight decrease in battery life, but only by 15-20 mins out of a 12 hr. day. Flashes fine with Odin.

    How to install EG04 Gingerbread ROM onto your Samsung Continuum SCH-I400
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1 - Download and install USB Drivers from Samsung's website.

    2 - Download and install Odin Flashing Program.

    3 - Reboot phone into DOWNLOAD mode. Accomplished by holding VOL-MINUS & POWER at the same time. When you see the SAMSUNG logo appear, turn loose of all the buttons. You should be in DOWNLOAD mode now.

    4 - Start Odin.

    5 - Connect phone to computer via USB cable.

    6 - Odin should now show a "Device" on a COM port.

    7 - Choose PIT file using the PIT button.

    8 - Choose ROM file using PDA button.

    9 - The REPARTITION box is checked - AUTO REBOOT box is checked - F. RESET TIME box is checked.

    10 - Choose START button to begin flash.

    11 - DO NOT TURN PHONE OFF OR OTHERWISE USE YOUR PHONE while flashing the ROM.

    12 - When ROM is completed the COM port will turn green with a SUCCESS message, then phone will reboot by itself.

    13 - First reboot can take a few minutes while everything is written to caches. HAVE PATIENCE

    14 - Enjoy some GB!

    PS: I take no credit for this ROM. I got lucky and found it in a few pieces, and just joined the 2 files together, then packaged it with the PIT file. I wish I knew who actually found this, I would personally like to thank them for it.

    Does this include root already in it or do we need to root post install?

    Thanks. This worked perfectly. Took an old Verizon phone and switched it over to Straight Talk then upgraded to 2.3.3

    Now if I could find a way to remove all the Verizon bloatware, I would be all set.

    Get Titanium Backup. Be sure to get the key for it too. With it you can remove ANY bloatware you wish.

    Thank you... it worked for me. I wanted my wife's old SCH-1400 to work as a wifi streaming audio device but iHeart Radio wasn't available. Now it works great and all is well. I now have a GB audio player!

    Hi.... I know this is an old thread, but I just pulled out my Continuum and reconnected/activated it on one of my lines, and was wondering if this ever got Gingerbread.... it's good to see that it did, even if it was just a dev image!!! This is basically my favorite device across years of various other older and newer devices. Unfortunately, it appears your link is dead. I'd really like to update so I can run some more modern apps that have a min OS version of 2.3. Does anyone know where I can still get these files?
