How To Update Samsung Galaxy FIT S 5670 to Gingerbread 2.3.4 Firmware

Galaxy FIT 2.3.4 LogoFor all those who are owning the handset called Samsung GALAXY Fit, it really can’t better than this as till now even Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 which was the flagship model for the year 2010 didn’t get the proper Gingerbread 2.3.3 version all across the World but here comes the bummer as the Samsung GALAXY Fit which costs less than half as that of the Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000 has an update which is dubbed as the latest Gingerbread 2.3.4 for Galaxy Fit. So, let’s check out on what are the things which are the new features or the things which have been added in this version of Gingerbread 2.3.4 for Samsung Galaxy Fit.

Please note that this update is the beta update and is not the official version, but it’s an official leak from the Samsung which is currently under testing and most of the bugs are fixed and also many functions have been fixed in this version of Gingerbread 2.3.4. So, before we proceed on what are the things which are new in this version and also how you can update your Galaxy Fit with the latest 2.3.4 you will also have to go through the list of pre requisites so as to facilitate the smoother firmware update to 2.3.4 Gingerbread release. This update of Gingerbread 2.3.4 is dubbed as XEKPG. Please note that by updating with this firmware will not void your phone’s warranty in any manner as this is not the rooting process and updating with this firmware won’t mean that you have rooted your phone.

Note : You will have to reconfigure the APN settings after updating the firmware to access the data services and the Internet services as all the Internet APN settings will be reset. You will have to contact your Service provider to get more info on the APN Settings. Not to forget also configure the MMS Settings. Also, we hold no responsibility if any thing goes wrong which is an unlikely event if anything goes wrong.

  2. I have successfully updated my galaxy fit 2.2 into 2.3.4. Now i m able to install many new applications (through 1MOBILE MARKET) and adobe flash player. But the flash player isn’t working yet. Plz tell how should fix this.
    And thax for the update. May u provide many helpful features in future.

  3. Hey !

    First of all ,Thanx to the author of this tutorial for such a simplified explanation about the usage of ODIN.

    And I am now officially on Gingerbread v 2.3.4 and there is a newer version than the one mentioned in the tutorial(it ends with KPI rather than KPG) .

    About the new version:

    *Yes .The mobile APN settings are gone.but you can contact your service provider and make them send it to you i suppose(I use wi fi almost 90% of the time though)

    *My galaxy fit is faster than when it was on froyo.The increase in speed isnt very high but it is noticeable.The response times are indeed quicker.

    *Wi fi seems to have become faster as well.

    *MAJOR UPDATE: The video camera resolution has been increased from QVGA @ 15 fps(320*480) to a quadruple times better resolution(That’s 4 TIMES better) of 640*480 VGA recording.
    But as far as i can see still shot camera imaging hasn’t been improved.

    *Minimal changes in the UI most noticeable of which are in the Notifications drop down menu & the lock screen.

    Problems faced:

    * The mobile APN does seem to be an unnecessary hassle but it does have a solution.
    *Default language looks Russian.Easily fixed-> Go to locale and text in settings and choose ENGLISH(US)

    If you have problems with USB connection repeat the process or make sure you clear cache in recovery mode(Hold power+home button in the power OFF state to go into recovery mode)

    Also,try using the memory card and then see if the memory stick is detected via USB.

    Hope it clears up some questions you might have had.

    Good luck !

    • Which country r u from ???? If from India,have you checked the GPS in google maps…………are you located perfectly

    • how do you up update using the newer version , can you write a tutorial for that cuz the newer version has some other files in the folder thanks in advance and what do you mean by the apn settings ? i activated a one month gprs plan from airtel , will it remain or do i need to make some settings after flashing

      • apn settings is the internet settings

      • Like i said before the newer version just has a different naming system.The process is just the same.(the version number ends with KPI rather than KPG).

        For fellow users,I have experienced none of the problems with the above mentioned version.Maybe you all should try to get it too !

        Maybe the site mods can update this tut to use that version !
