How To Update Samsung Galaxy 3 I5801 to Froyo 2.2 Firmware

Galaxy 3 LogoFor Samsung Galaxy 3 i5801 owners there’s a great news for all you guys has arrived, yes the most awaited Froyo 2.2 has arrived for Galaxy 3 not through KIES though, but you can install this Froyo 2.2 version on your phone manually by following simple instructions which are given below. If this is the first time you are updating your phone with the firmware then you need to know first the pre requisite and important instructions before directly proceeding to flashing the device so as to continue with the smooth update process. The firmware which we will be installing will be the Asian built and not the European build, though the EU builds are said to be the stable ones but the last firmware which was released in the February 2011 was XWJPD and was having screen black out issues after the call and also the battery life was not that optimized as compared to the latest and an all new Froyo ZHJPF 2.2 Android version for your Galaxy 3 i5801(Apollo).

The firmware flashing is similar to that of we used to see for Samsung Galaxy S, we have covered nearly 10 different versions of update from 2.2 Froyo to the latest Gingerbread 2.3.3 and we look forward to deliver same firmware upgrade tutorials for other Android phones in the market too. So, after following the important instructions below you will need to follow the procedure after that.

Galaxy 3 PhoneInstructions and Pre Requisites:

  • First up, make sure that the phone which you wish to upgrade is Samsung Galaxy 3 I5801 ONLY, after this you will have to download the Flash kit for Galaxy 3 from here and you will have to unzip the same, if it prompts for the password then you need to enter the password as androidadvices.com.
  • Since the firmware update process will wipe all the contacts, sms, third party applications, music, images and videos you will have to ensure that you have taken a backup of all your contents so that you can easily restore the same.
  • It’s ideal to have a battery life of 100% before proceeding to upgrading the phone, but its recommended to have at least 75% of battery life for a smoother upgrade process.
  • Also, make sure that your computer or laptop has a supports USB 2.0.
  • Ensure that the Samsung KIES is completely closed and also disable all the antivirus programs along with all the firewalls.

Procedure to upgrade Samsung Galaxy 3 (APOLLO) to FROYO 2.2:

  • First up after downloading the Flash Kit for Galaxy 3 I5801 above, you will get a zipped folder which upon unzipping you will get three files in it, one is the Firmware file itself which is 5810ZHJPF, Odin v4.252 and also Galaxy3_0531.ops file.
  • After downloading and placing all the three files on the desktop so that you can easily find the folders you will have to now switch your phone Off and then pull out the Sim card as well as the Memory card so that data in it doesn’t get deleted.
  • · Now, you will have to turn your phone ON in the Download Mode which basically acts as a safe mode for your phone and the same can be entered by holding the Volume Down button + the Home key button (the middle button), while holding these both buttons, you need to switch ON your device by Pressing he Power ON button.
  • After ensuring that firewall, KIES and also Antivirus programs are closed in computer you need to open the exe file “Odin v4.252” which you have downloaded and after which you will have to connect your phone to the computer with the help of USB cable.

As soon as you connect your phone to the computer you will see that in the “Odin Multi Downloader”, the COM Port Mapping block will turn yellow and will show up 1 (COM 6) int he box which will mean that the required drivers have been successfully installed after which in the Message field you will see that <1> Detected!!!.

Odin Multidownloader

  • In the Option field you need to ensure that Auto Reboot, Protect OPS and Reset Time (Sec) options are ticked and in the “Reset Time (Sec) field” 300 is entered as shown in the below screen shot and also ensure that One Package field is unticked.
  • In Debug Option, ensure that Debug Only is not ticked.
  • Now, next up you will have to select the below mentioned FILES which you have downloaded as mentioned below in the Odin Multi downloader,

OPS – Galaxy3_0531.ops file

Boot – I5801ZFJPE-REV02-Bootloader-CL915488.tar.md5

Phone – GALAXY3_FET_REV_00_phone

PDA – I5801ZFJPE-REV02-PDA-CL915488.tar.md5

CSC – I5801FETJPD-CSC-FET.tar.md5

EFS – NONE

One Package – NONE

Load Files in Odin

Do ensure and double check that the selections are done as per mentioned above.

  • After double checking the selections, proceed by clicking on the “Start” option and you will see that after sometime the process will be completed, generally it takes a minute or two not more than that to finish the upgradation process, do note that you don’t pull off the USB cable in the upgradation process as this will seriously damage the phone and your phone will become no less than an expensive paper weight as that will be bricked though this is an unlikely event and if power goes in between then not to worry you just have to follow the procedure again from the start.
  • As soon as the update gets finished you will see that the phone will be rebooting and you will see that you phone will be prompting you to enter all the initial settings, and now you can unplug the USB cable from your phone.
  • There you go you have now successfully installed the latest Froyo 2.2 version on your Galaxy 3 I5801.
  • Please note that at this point of time you may have to change the language as the language will be set to some other language, so to set the language as English you just need to refer to the pictures which are shown below,

SettingsLocale and TextSelect LanguageSelect English

Do let us know if you have any problems while updating as we will help you out with the same. Now, to check on which version you are on then you will have to just tap on the Settings > About Phone > Firmware Version where you will find the version of Android OS where it will show 2.2.

Galaxy 3 VersionPlease note that this update can be applied to all the handsets with model number of Galaxy 3 I5801 or even for Apollo version. Also, once the Gingerbread 2.3 arrives for the Galaxy 3 we will let you know about the same. Most importantly by applying this update won’t mean that you have rooted your phone.

    Again go to settings->wireless and network->APNs(Access point Names)->New APN select: Name as Vodafone GPRS,APN as www then Authentication as None & APN Type as internet.
    Switch off ur mobile,remove the sim card n battery for 5mins.Restart the phone u ll see the “E” symbol on the main screen which indicates internet is working ..and the when u go to Settings->wireless and network->Mobile network you can see “Use packet data” will be automatically get ticked ..
    It worked out.
    So anyone facing internet problem they can just try this!.

    I am not able to uninstall the chinese application.Please help me on that..

    • you need to root the phone to remove the apps…

    • I tried your suggestions but it didn’t work. But after googling a little more I tried changing APN to “portalnmms” and everything worked just fine. That is, “Use Packet Data” started working normally, GPRS with “E” symbol appears whenever “Use Packet Data” is checked.

  48. I have clearly mentioned in my comment that these websites were 100% perfectly working in Android 2.1 Eclair. Read the comment properly before sending reply.

  49. After Android 2.2 Froyo upgrade, internet is working but browser is unable to display websites properly. Animated content, plugin content and links on webpages are not working. I have also enabled plugin content in browser settings. Instead of content, a blue cube with question mark appears. You can notice this in websites like ‘www.cavernsofblood.com’ and ‘www.millaj.com’. These websites were displayed properly in Android 2.1 Eclair and animated content, plugin content and links were working properly. How to solve this major issue?

  50. Also i have checked all internet settings and internet works. But – I am owner of SAMSUNG GALAXY 3 APOLLO GT-I5801. I upgraded my device to Android 2.2 Froyo by authorised service centre 2 times. But each time, my Android internet browser as well as any other browser like Skyfire, Opera Mobile, Dolphin and Miren are unable to show plugin content even after enabling plugin content in settings. For example, ‘www.cavernsofblood.com’, ‘www.millaj.com’ could not be viewed with animated content after Froyo upgrade. With Android 2.1 Eclair, these websites were easily viewed with animated content after enabling plugin content in settings in Android browser. Most of the websites and links in them now could not be opened after froyo upgrade. All this was perfectly working in Android 2.1 Eclair. In Froyo, while browsing internet websites, a blue coloured cube with question mark sign appears in place of plugin content which is annoying. Kindly help me by providing a proper solution.

  74. Hello guys, i am going to upgrade my galaxy 3 ver2.1 to 2.2 froyo. This article says to close the KIES while doing the upgrade. My question is, does KIES has any role in this process? Because i havent insstalled KIES in my PC. Please reply…

  75. I finally got ti through. How I did it was downloading the files from a different blog but the instructions here is more in depth. The phone is up & running like a charm and I changed the language back to English. When I connected with kies it said there’s a newer firmware for upgrade. I gonna wait for a little while then get it ( why kies didn’t allow the upgrade when at 2.1? )

  76. I Installed it….but Exchange mail & Gmail not get conncted….Pls Suggest..:(

  77. Hello….Now I am doing this procedure……25 min happened…but the procedure mot upto “factoryfs.rfs”

    Thank you

  81. Hi,
    I am from US. Samsung didn’t released Galaxy 3 i5801 in US. As a result I can’t get 2.2 upgrade from any world wide Samsung sites ( I’ve tried UK or Asian sites by using their KIES ) Mine is unlocked & carrier is AT&T.
    Since this is my first Android phone I am not that tech savvy enough to do my own updates if I can get the official one.
    So,are their any method to go around this to get the official one? Because Samsung did released the official version as far as I know. It’s just not for my phone in US market.
    Thanks in advance if any one can help.

    • dude
      do the update frm the firmware givn here
      the official update also has bugs
      so basically tis is a better update….

      • Thanks for the reply! I am going to try one more thing that is by using an Asian sim card to see I can get the official update through Samsung Asia site.
        If it still doesn’t work then I have to use the one here.
        Thanks for the suggestion tho.

    • hey @sharat what exactly the error message you are getting, we will soon come out with a procedure to root Galaxy 3.

  93. my phone has become slower what do i do?

  94. thanks this tut. very helpful.

  95. Hey…!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thaanks to all those people who have been behind the scenes in building this update. I was desperately looking for an Upgrade through skies which never seemed to detect my phone. But this solution has drawn curtains to all the Samsung Skies hassles. Thanks a lot.

    I will update on the performance after few days of usage.

  96. again upgraded to froyo with kies but still having same issues like
    default music player closes suddenly and unable to detect any other bluetooth device(eg. laptop) other than mobile phone.
    dont know how to get rid off these bugs pls help……

  97. updation from samsung kies is quite easy and also legal(and a bit time consuming also). i wont say that this procedure is bad or poor, but when the device is in warantee, one should go with the proper application.

  98. when will b the nxt version comin?
    i hope we dun hav to root to uninstall the chinese apps
    lol :D

  99. Thanks a lot dude for the upgrade, it feels really nice to have a feel of android2.2 on my galaxy3.
    But there are still a lot of things I m not seeing on my phone
    1. live wallpaper support
    2. wifi tethering to a wifi hotspot

    These are two major things I m in need of, can someone please help me out.

    Thanks again

    HI Pradeep,

    i have recently upgraded to froyo. when i connected my galaxy 3 -GT I5801
    (earlier it was 5800) to the Samsung kies, i got a pop up saying that there is an firmware update available for my phone. i clicked OK to upgrade the firmware. after the upgrade when i checked the firmware version it was same as the above only the difference is in build number.

    Earlier it was FROYO:ZPJPE now it is FROYO:ZPJPF

    I am not able to make out any other differences. Even live wallpapers is still not available :-( Also Chinese applications are still visible.

    I request you to give me the exact difference between those firmwares.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I have a Samsung galaxy 3 (GT- I5800) bought from UK which is having a firmware version 2.1 update 1 and baseband version I5800XXJG3. can i upgrade my phone to froyo with the above said steps or is there any other way to upgrade without any problems to the phone?

    Thanks in advance.

    -Prashanth. K

    • yes @prashanth you can surely update your phone!

      • Prashanth Krishna

        thanks Pradeep. I did a firmware upgrade to 2.2 using the above tips successfully, now please tell me How to enable live wallpapers in Samsung galaxy 3.

        • @prashanth long press on the home screen and select live wallpapers

        • Prashanth @ did you upgrade… when you downloaded the zip flash file did you get all the three file in it, or u seperately downloaded it…

    • i have purchased in chennai Samsung – i5801DDJG6, KERNEL VERSION 2.6.29, BUILD NO.ECLAIR.DDJG6. Can I update as you have mentioned to 2.2? kindly confirm.
      Dr.Bhaskar

  145. does this void the warranty or is it the samsung official update?

    • @RN-85 no this will not void the warranty and you can go back at any time, its the leak version which is quite stable and is better than stock 2.1 version of Galaxy 3

  146. Thanks for the update dude.. Seems nice. But how do I uninstall the stock chinese apps from the phone ???

    • @shashank you can uninstall them..!!

      • How. The inbuilt applications wont uninstall. I think rooting is required. but how to root.

      • thanks for the update update..but their seems to be some problem with my phone..before running the froyo update…my screen kept on flashing USB connected ..usb connected…phone used to heat up and after that it used to shud down by itself…after upgrading froyo have the same problem..please provide me with some suggestions

      • also i am data service icon is not showing up on the status bar and not able to use the gprs connection even after data service in wireless and netowork option

    • I must Say that the Battery life has been exceedingly well on this firmware. I’ve been using it for days now and seems quite good. I’ve haven’t had any luck in uninstalling the chinese apps though. They just don’t get listed in the list of apps.

      I haven’t rooted it yet as I’ve heard that it voids the warranty. Can’t say for sure. But thanks for the update.

    • Shashank @ what are these stock chinese applications?? and also tell me if this is a chinese version or english version.

  147. thanks a lot man :) :)

    • I’m abt to go thru these steps, just want to clear that whether flash player will get installed and also work as i do want to watch live tv. thanx

      • dude only one file is getting downloaded… Can any one help…. i am only able to get the 5801ZHJPE, not getting the other two… where can i get them
