How To Update Samsung Galaxy mini S 5570 to Gingerbread 2.3.3 Firmware

Pre Upgrade Instructions:

  • Before proceeding to update, you need to ensure that you have synced all your contacts with your Google Account, all sms, applications, videos and music files which are there in your phone should be taken a backup or else the data will be lost. Anything which is in SD card will not be lost, so you can alternatively move to SD Card. If you are planning to store in internal SD Card then it’s preferred to store the data in computer as a backup as in an unlikely event the data in SD Card may get corrupted.
  • Create a backup of all the Internet APN settings along with the MMS settings so that you can again configure them all after the firmware update as sometimes these settings tend to get erased or wiped off completely after the update.
  • Next up remove the SIM card as well as the external SD cards if any in your phone, just to make sure that in an unlikely event the data in it doesn’t get corrupted,
  • Additionally, ensure that your phone has at least more than 50% of battery power left, this is just an advisory which if followed then you will not experience any difficulties as while updation of the device the battery consumption is at a maximum,
  • Last but not the least ensure that your phone is Samsung Galaxy mini S 5570 and not any other phone as if you proceed installing any other phone then there is a high possibility that you will brick your phone after which your phone will become un usable. Just in case if the upgradation gets interrupted in between then you will have to re follow the whole procedure again from the start so that the updation process of 2.3.3 completes successfully.
  • If you have rooted your phone earlier then after the firmware update you will have to again root the device as the phone will be un rooted and the rooting access will be revoked.
  • Ensure that you close the KIES completely as this may interrupt the process of updation and also most importantly note that this Gingerbread 2.3.3 update is not the official update and is the beta release, so some bugs might arise though which will be solved in the next available update which will soon be released.

Note: Updating with this update doesn’t mean that you are rooting the phone or even void the warranty as rooting is different from updating the firmware.

  55. 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

  56. 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

      1. Hi Neal,

        How do i improve the speed , since installing the ginger bread accessing internet , market apps etc has become extremely slow.

        Can you help.

        Regards

        Praveen

  57. 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…….

      1. This version is good..but how to I want to downgrade to 2.2.1? I want the official samsung gingerbread update..heard it was released…..

        1. what do you mean?
          see actually ive not taken a backup of my earlier rom….and i want to nowupgrade to official version….with this version of gingerbread it comes that no update found…… how do i get a stock rom for my phone…….

  58. 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

  59. 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.

    1. 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!

  60. 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.

  61. 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?

  62. 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. =)

  63. 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.

  64. Thank’s. The tutorial work very well.

    Problem:

    1. Barcode scanner does not work

    2. Is there any swype setting for Bahasa Indonesia rather than English.

  65. 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”

        1. 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!

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

      2. @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

    please reply .and yes thanx for the tutorial it works perfectly

  72. 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.

  73. How do i delete cache? I know how to start phone in download mode or what it is, but it stays in that “Downloading…” screen
    Sry I’m a noob…
    Otherwise this Gingerbread works well :)
    (Sorry for my English too…)

  74. 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

  75. 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?

  76. 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?

  77. 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

  78. 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

  79. 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.

      1. 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

        “disabled secured with WPA,WPA2 PSK”

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

  81. 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?

  82. 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.

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

  84. 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.

  85. 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.

  86. 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!

  87. Hi,

    I was trying to upgrade to gingerbread as mentioned. But it is taking more than 12 hours in system.rfs download..

    is it normal or anything wrong?

    Can you provide me froyo.ddkc1 in case if i want to go back?

    Thanks..

      1. Hi Pradeep,

        I have downloaded the firmware package to my PC. It is taking more than 12 hours in Odin software. It is also showing a big partition size message in the Odin.

        Thanks

      Mine is in the Philippine and since when i installed the firmware update worked, I guess it depends in what country your Galaxy Mini was purchased.

      So anybody will you please help our guy here to update his phone.

      Thanks.

  106. Thanks! It works, advise people to check how to update language settings before proceeding

  107. Porfavor!, lo instale, todo marcha perfecto, pero no me reconoce mi simcard!!, me aparece “solo llamadas de emergencia” ya no se que hacer, por favor ayudaa :(

  108. 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.

  109. why my fon can’t to setting google account after upgrade to gingerbread? i’m from asia. Plz

  110. can i downgrade to the previous firmware? cause i can’t connect to my mobile internet, only wireless

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

    2. 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

  117. 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!
