    I recently purchased Samsung Galaxy Ace GT S5830. I wanted to upgrade the firmware to GB. I followed all the steps as per Android Advices. I entered all the parameters in the ODIN Downloader. But after hitting the start button it starts. But nothing happens even after lapse of 30 minutes. I tried restarting the PC and Phone. Even then nothing happens.

    When I unzip the download and when I enter the file names from the PC it enters the path. Is it correct. If not how it is to be done. Can anybody give me guidance? I am using a LAPTOP and WiFi for downloading the files. Please help me.
