    Upadated my galaxy pop(indian version) to Gingerbread 2.3.3
    1.Cannot silence my calls using the volume down button.
    2.Not able to read updates made in facebook in Hindi language.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      there is a language issue as Android still doesnt support hindi and also there are some issues with the firmware which will be fixed in the next version!

  • Rance

    Okay, I just need to confirm something.

    For anyone from the Asian Region already installed this…

    Gingerbread 2.3.4 OS update has been released, but as we all know, the serial’s for Europe like what you’re using here. Can we use that to update S5570’s with Asian serials?

    Because I’ve heard there were some issues with the mobile internet (3G not connecting) and WiFi, can anyone confirm (especially anyone from Asia) that their phone with the upgrade doesn’t have these problems? Does your upgraded phone encounter any problems at all after the upgrade?

    It would probably be for a lot of people’s piece of mind (I’m sure a lot of people have the same question) so I would be very thankful if this gets cleared up.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      yes you can proceed to install, no issues have been reported!

    I already success upgrading my Samsung Mini into Android OS 2.3.3 Gingerbread. But the problem now, all applications that I had installed before I upgrade the phone all gone. I’m not sure whether it is completely gone or still in my SD Card. Any idea on this problem? Or is it better to re-download all those applications again? Do I need to root my phone? Hope you can reply ASAP. Thanks for your great tutorial though. =)

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      Yes as mentioned in the article…all apps will be lost after applying update.

        Thx for the advice in advance..

        • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

          have you tried looking att he settings of bluetooth like is it “discoverable” or not?

      • arieflh

        @Irfan I thetered both with mobile AP and USB thethering. Under Windows 7 and Linux OS. Both of them running very well.

        Ya, ofcourse there is a slightly different connection setting between USB cable compare to mobile AP.
        Thing that You have to do after connecting the USB cable and is Check the connection. Go to

        Start>Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center.

        If your connection setting is properly done, You will see In the “View your Active Network” (second line after “View your basic network and set up connections”): something describeing your connection type : “the type of your Connection: Local Area Connection 2″

        You have to click the “Connect or disconnect” to make a connection. And click again to dissconnect.

        Let me know if this steps work.

        Cheers

    Hi all,

    I also got stuck with the upgrade, but eventually found my mistake was very simple. When trying to put the phone in download mode, instead of pressing the “volume down” button, I pressed between it and the “volume up” button. And I got something similar to some other posters – text only, although the text was different for me.

    Once I pressed the correct buttons and got the little android with the shovel, my upgrade worked.

    I hope this helps somebody else.

  • khurram

    ok thanks for your support! What about using GPS only standalone? Any App to be used for that? I want to see the GPS data, Lat , long ,speed, height

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Neal Pradeep

      it will show it!

  • khurram

    Because when i switch the Maps App and Navigation App, it says it requires a Wroking Data Connection.

    I want GPS to work standalone? Which App would so that?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Neal Pradeep

      No it requires the GPRS connectivity.

  • khurram

    kindly tell me that does Maps App need the internet connection? I think it does. I want the GPS to show me coordinated standalone even if there is no data connection and Mobile Service. How to do that?
    Because the mobile has a dedicated GPS hardware. So is there any App to show the Lat long info in a standalone fashion?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Neal Pradeep

      Internet connectivity is a must for loading maps.

  • khurram

    also guide me how to use GPS, i want to see palin Lat long information on the mobile screen , how to do that?

    Thanks for the great tutorial

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Neal Pradeep

      you can get that on your Maps application! Have you tried that?

  • khurram

    wifi still not working, i dont know what is the problem, is it with the handset particularly. When i switch on the tethring and portable hosts and Mobile AP the wifi becomes active there is a blue icon at the top. But normally the wifi is not even detecting the unsecured network on my laptop. I thought that this upgrade would help me

    Help required

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Neal Pradeep

      have you tried updating the device again?

  • khurram

    I have this mini galaxy , and you must be aware that it has the bug of wifi, i am unable to make its wifi work. Can you please tell me that will this upgrade solve the wifi problem. As of now i have tried all the remedies posted on various sites like that code *#*#*526#*#*, which reloads the WLAN driver, then i have also tried the removal of battery when the set is ON as some say that it resets the wifi. I am sure that the problem is with the software not the hardware of wifi, as the hotspot works perfectly.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Neal Pradeep

      there should be no issues but as you are facing you just try updating the device once again

    Also is there any other way for the emails (if they take space of internal memory) to go to my SD card?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Neal Pradeep

      it takes the default option!

  • HN

    Hey!
    I am a new user to the phone, and I was wondering whether Gmail takes up internal space, as in if I load the emails, will they be saved in the internal memory? My internal memory is also quite small since I am using Galaxy Mini.

    Secondly, has the official update come out? How can I upgrade my phone with the official update? Any website you would recommend?

    Also, can I get my update done from any Samsung store or do I have to go the place where I bought it from? I bought the phone from home and using it in college now.

      official update hasn’t come yet! you can refer this site for more details!

  • Daniel

    Hi,

    Im stuck in a huge bind. I followed your instructions and it worked perfectly, except that my phone didn’t recognize the network and also had wifi and screen issues, so I thought I would roll back.
    I used a froyo firmware (one package) found in samfirmware and now my phone doesn’t respond to anything, as in, I have a black screen. My comp seems to detect it because Odin detects and adds it, but I get stuck on “set up connection” indefinitely when trying to reflash it to the update I hd done in the first place. Did I brick my phone?

    Thanks from Chile, Latin America.

    I put Android 2.3.4 on Samsung Galaxy S Mini 5570 and it works perfectly.
    Baut the question is : how to root it, since SuperOneClickv didn`t work on Android 2.3.4, even the site is down.
    I found an alternative, CF-root, but which version should i use ?

      once the rooting procedure arrives, we will surely update you with the same!

      Thanks.

  • Prashanth

  • Alejandro Medina

  • Richmund

    hi guys!

    I downloaded this firmware update and its pretty amazing.
    It worked!

    After you successfully installed gingerbread, language is different but you can change it by selecting LOCALE AND TEXT in your phone.

    My galaxy mini before is KA8 here in Philippines. Should you check first before you update.

            thanks for the link!

    • Parv Sharma

      have you checked the internet settings in your phone..may be there is some issue with thode settings

    • Jan

      The upgrade deleted all access point names. That’s why you (and I) can’t connect to the internet any more after the upgrade.
      Go to your provider website and see how you can obtain renewed apn settings by sms or how to add apn setting manually. i renewed the apn settings and everything worked like a charme again.

      Good luck

  • Jody

    Very interesting tutorial, Neel! I’m really interested in updating my firmware to Gingerbread. However, there’s something that you might need to clarify: is it possible to downgrade to the previous firmware , in case we prefer the former because of personal preference?

    I believe some users who prefer the official upgrade would also want to consider this option. If the official update is out, and I need to downgrade my firmware before updating the official firmware, will it be possible?

    Thanks for answering my questions!
