  1. The first thing to do is to download the required files; so from here download the Android 4.3 update file and from here download the Google Apps package.
  2. Save these files on your computer without extracting the same – just place the files on desktop.
  3. Now, connect your Galaxy S with the computer as you need to move the same files.
  4. For establishing the connection, plug in the USB cord.
  5. Select the update file and the Google apps package and copy-paste or drag and drop the same from desktop to your phone’s SD card.
  6. Disconnect the phone from the computer by removing the USB cable.
  7. Now, you need to press the power on button for a few second for turning off your Galaxy S.
  8. Reboot in recovery mode.
  9. The first thing to do is to wipe the data and clear the cache; do that by selecting “wipe data factory reset” and “wipe cache partition”.
  10. Return to recovery menu and choose “advance” followed by “wipe dalvick cache”.
  11. Once more return to recovery; this time select “install zip from SD card” and “choose zip from SD card”.
  12. Pick the firmware file; flash the same.
  13. Repeat the same procedure and pick the Google Apps package; install the same.
  14. In the end, just return to recovery and select “reboot system now”.
  15. Enjoy.
Note: the first boot is usually taking longer to complete than usual; if that happens, don’t panic because there is nothing wrong with your smartphone.
Note 2: in case the first boot is actually a boot loop, you will have to return to recovery and select “wipe data factory reset” followed by “wipe cache partition”. Then return to recovery, choose “reboot system now” and you are done.
