How To Update Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 to Gingerbread XXKPE 2.3.4 Firmware

Galaxy SL LogoWe are aware of the recent issues which most of the Galaxy SL I9003 users are facing after updating their devices with the latest firmware as most of the users reported about the non-functional of the camera just after applying the update successfully. This issue is due to the kernel used in these firmwares which are buggy and cause issues like these, since these firmwares are in the beta mode such issues are expected. So, let’s check out another firmware version which is the latest and has lesser intensity bugs than all previous versions in the due course of this article. This all new firmware is dubbed as XXKPE 2.3.4 Gingerbread version. So, let’s check out the same and see on how you can update with this version of firmware.

This version is very much stable then compared to the previous firmware of XXKP9 2.3.4 Gingerbread version which is the best part of this firmware. Before we proceed to the updation of the firmware there are few rules and regulations which one has to follow to facilitate the smoother firmware update process as most of the times it has been found that due to not following of instructions, users face issues like poor battery backup even after the firmware update, issues related to the backing up of data.

We have mentioned the links clearly in the “Pre Requisites” section on how you can take a backup and also on how you can restore the same to your phone. Additionally for all the list of enhancements which comes with this version of firmware too are mentioned in the dedicated section which you will find in the next page of this article as the article is broken into different pages so as to further add up to the convenience.

Please note that this update is only meant for the phone with the model number Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 and not for any other similar looking models or similar sounding models like Samsung Galaxy S I9000M or Captivate, Mesmerize or even other phones like Vibrant etc. If you still proceed to update the device then you may even end up bricking up your phone or some keys won’t be responding as per the functions which these keys are meant to do. So, let’s proceed for the list of enhancements first which are listed in the next page and then followed by the pre upgrade instructions and then procedure to update the phone.

Do i need to Root my Phone before i update with this firmware?
The answer is “NO” as rooting is different from the firmware update. Rooting basically opens up the device with which you can even access the system level files which cannot be done in a non-rooted phone. This firmware update doesn’t require you to root your phone before you proceed for the firmware update. Another thing is that if you have already rooted your phone before then after applying this firmware the root access will be revoked and then again you will have to root your device to get the root access.

Note: You will have to reconfigure the APN settings after updating the firmware to access the data services and the 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 anything goes wrong which is an unlikely event if anything goes wrong. Most of the users forget this step and end up experiencing difficulties in accessing the internet after updating the phone.
