Samsung Galaxy 3 GT I5801 – Steps to Install Official Froyo DDJP6 2.2 Firmware

Samsung Galaxy 3 LogoIt’s very unfortunate that Samsung Galaxy 3 GT 5801 users might not get to see the official Gingerbread 2.3 firmware but not to worry as in the due course of this article we will check out on how you can install the Froyo 2.2 version of firmware which is dubbed as DDJP6. To make things simple, you need to go through the list of pre requisites after which you can proceed with the procedure which is mentioned in the next page. This update is the global update and anyone with their devices can apply this firmware. To check the exact phone model, you need to dial “*#1234#” after which you will get the details like current firmware version.

Advisory: This update should not be applied to the phones which are NETWORK LOCKED DEVICES, if you still continue to update your phone then we cannot guarantee on the consequences.

Disclaimer: At Android Advices, we have made sure in all respects that all the information regarding the firmware update is mentioned correctly in this article. We hold no responsibility in any manner just in case if any damage happens to your Samsung Galaxy 3 GT 5801.

Quick Pre Requisites:

  • First and very important thing you need to do is to first create a backup of all the data which is there in your device memory so that just in case if the data gets lost or corrupted, the same can be restored easily. Please note that you should not backup using the KEIS tool as after updating it may / may not recognize the device.

SMS – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Notes – Manually save the notes in your mail as these will be lost in the process of firmware update
Call Log - Call Log and Restore
Images, Songs, Videos, Files – Copy to internal / External SD Card,
APN and MMS Settings – Note down from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • After this, disable all the tools like Security SuitesFirewall tools along with the Samsung KIES as these tend to interrupt the update process. The APN Settings are located in this path, Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names.
  • Apart from this, also ensure that the minimum battery level left is minimum of 60% so as to ensure that the device doesn’t get turned Off in the middle of firmware update. Update the KIES with the latest version.

Now, let’s proceed to the next page where we will see on how to update your phone with this firmware with simple to follow steps.

    I upgraded the galaxy 3 software using kies. Then i had internet problems, not the ones mentioned here. Mine is a problem of intermittent internet. It works for a few minutes then goes off. If i switch off wireless and switch on, it works again for some time. Sometime, it just starts working on its own. Same is the case with network 3G internet.

    Thinking it would be better to try the version provided here, i upgraded to as per above instructions. There was definite improvement in speed. But the internet problem still remains.

    please help.
