Please note that you will have to note that if you are a newbie and you are updating the firmware then make sure that you are following the every single instruction carefully before proceeding to update your Samsung Galaxy mini S 5570 phone. If you are updating your device by following the step by step procedure which is mentioned below then absolutely there will be no issues will arise. 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 2.3.3 for Samsung Galaxy mini.

Improvement in the new Gingerbread update:

  • The overall user interface now has been substantially improved as with the use of Touch Wiz 3.0 Lite, you will never feel like using any other add on like additional tweaks.
  • Most of the users also reported an issue of frequent force closes in their gallery application which is now been fixed with this update of 2.3.3. By the way if you want to have an all new Gallery for Android then too you can enjoy it as it provides the iPhone like view of all the photos which are there in the Gallery with host of other added benefits and features.
  • Now, the free RAM too is increased and it also releases more RAM to the users directly so that the phone becomes much faster as the RAM availability has been increased to the users so that apps can make use of it and also the start-up time has been marginally reduced by two points. The quadrant speeds have been substantially improved and also the user interface is now much speedier than before. This update is considered as the major update with almost all the fixes.
  • Now, all new flash update of 10.3 Adobe flash comes packed along with this update and also most importantly the Google Maps are now updated with this update so as to deliver the 3D Map view.
  • Many user also reported the issues regarding the Android Market Place where in users we getting error messages while they are on the slow internet speeds or even sometimes on Wi Fi which now has been solved by this update.
  • Many of the users also reported that on their current 2.2 Froyo version due to slow internet speed the market place used to neither give an error due to which apps use to neither doesn’t get downloaded nor update the list of apps and required manual intervention for the update.
  • The voice search as well as the Google Maps now have been further optimized along with the GPS which were not accurate enough in the Galaxy mini. Along with this, the battery life has been substantially optimized for providing longer battery life but it may not be that high but it has been substantially increased the Quadrant scores.
  • The battery bug will be solved in the next version which will be in the version of Gingerbread 2.3.4 for Samsung Galaxy mini.

Note: Since the firmware update has been updated, all the APN Settings will be cleared. So, to access all the data services / MMS / Internet, you will have to get the Internet settings from from your Service provider. Despite several attempts users are found that this instruction is repeatedly being neglected.

  90. Hi Neal!

    thank you for your great step by step instruction and installed perfectly on my Galaxy S and Galaxy Mini, but there is a problem in my Glaxy Mini while connecting Netgear Router, do you have any suggestion to overcome it?

    thank you once again for your great contribution!

    thank you and all the best

  91. Samfirmware lists XXKPK as the latest 2.3.4 firmware for S5570. Build date 2011 July 21.

  92. Hi Neal,

    Thanks for the firmware. Just one question. I have a Galaxy Mini S 5570L. Is there any difference in the phones? Can I use this firmware?

    Thanks for the advice.

    Robert

  93. i follow this article and successfully upgrade to 2.3.3

  94. hi…. update was good and fast…… but one problem.. the flash player doesnt work as you said….is there any fix or sumthin…… cause i really want it badly…….

  95. Great job it was very easy do update just 2 things you missed. about the phone language some newbees may face problem and how to go in recovery mode anyway i find in post thanks a lot

  96. 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.

    • 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!

  97. 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.

  98. When connected, my PC (Windows XP SP2) recognized my Galaxy Mini as MSM7X27 and ask for its USB driver. Can I found it and download it somewhere?

  99. Dear NeaL,

    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. =)

  100. Dear NeaL,
    I have upgraded to gingerbread for my Samsung s5570 mini. After upgrading, I am unable to configure my e-mail ( imap ) setting to my mobile. The massage “the security feature required by server is not supported in your device” is coming. Previous to upgrade, I was using mails. please help me regarding this. thank you.
    Arun.

  102. Plz help me…
    i cant tether with my pc after the update!
    In network connetcions it says device is disabled..
    when i enable it it says “connection failed”

    • YES YOU CAN TETHER EASILY

      • I am not able to connect to the internet after the update!
        plzzzzzzzz help!!!!!!!!

        • reconfigure the APN Settings for accessing the internet on your phone. you can contact your service provider to fix this issue as you will have to get the apn settings!

    • @ Neal Pradep: Yes It theth easily.
      @ Irfan: please turn on the blue tooth first

      • whats with the bluetooth??
        I am trying to tether with my usb cable….
        Thx for the advice in advance..

      • @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

  114. The password is correct?, It gives me an error

  115. 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.

    Sry I’m a noob…
    Otherwise this Gingerbread works well :)
    (Sorry for my English too…)

  119. 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

  120. 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?

  121. 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?

  122. 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

  123. 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

  124. 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.

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

      • dude even i had the wifi problem,it was working fine for the first 7 days then it constantly says “disabled secured with WPA,WPA2 PSK”

        i sincerely thank u for ur post of neatly explaining the steps and its working very fine in indian phones as well,but i couldnt fix the wifi bug after upgrading it to 2.3.3
        what shud i do
        is there any way of fixing this wifi problem if known plzzz reply thanks a ton :D

        “disabled secured with WPA,WPA2 PSK”

  125. hiii

  126. thanks for your advice

  127. or i’ll wait for the official samsung firmware update release

  128. and also the other applications?

  129. Thank you for this fast answare, but will working the wifi,gps navigation, android market place without problems on this version?

  130. On my phone is Android 2.2.1 version can i update it to 2.2.3 or to the 2.2.4 Gingerbread, with all the apps working?

  131. it didnt work for me..
    how do u completely reverse this processes??

  132. Thushan Perera

    Worked perfectly on my Mini S5570 and later managed to upgrade to 2.3.4. works bit faster and battery lasts a bit longer as well.

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

  134. 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.

  135. 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.

  136. Amila Udana Kalinga

    yes. It worked in Sri Lanka. My phone is Samsung glaxy pop S 5570 it upgraded to android 2.3 new Galaxy mini S 5570 acordingly this blog. this is awesome and new features, Language is simply changed to English. Thanks thanks thanks!

  185. 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!
