Samsung Galaxy 551 – Steps to Update XWKPB Gingerbread 2.3.6 Firmware

Galaxy 551 2.3.6 LogoSo, Gingerbread 2.3.6 firmware is here! Yes, after so many months and days after we last covered on the Gingerbread 2.3.4 version of firmware arrival for your Samsung Galaxy 551 i5510 phone. The best part of this firmware is that this firmware can also applied by the users who are on the network locked phones as the support for this phone has now been taken off from Samsung which means that there won’t be any sort of official updates from the operator end which means that you can manually apply the update of your choice. We know that you are really excited about this and want to apply this update at the earliest but we recommend you to follow all the instructions which are mentioned in this article so as to facilitate smoother and speedy update of the phone. This all new update of Gingerbread 2.3.6 is dubbed as XWKPB version.

Disclaimer: We should not be held responsible for any damage happened to your device after applying this firmware update though we have made sure that we haven’t missed out any of the steps and also its highly impossible to mess up your device just in case if you follow the instructions which are mentioned in this article.

Rooting Information:

  • For applying this firmware you need not root the phone and also applying this firmware will in no manner will root the phone.
  • Just in case if you have rooted the phone earlier then the rooting access will be revoked and you can then reclaim the lost warranty which is the best part.
  • We will try our level best so as to come up with an article wherein you will be able to root the phone on the XWKPB Firmware which is Gingerbread 2.3.6 version.

So, let’s proceed to the pre requisites which you need to follow in the next page followed by the list of instructions to apply this Gingerbread 2.3.6 firmware after that.

    Hey, Pradeep Neela
    I really appreciate you have made the firmware. Its really a great job. I am a Bangali. I am using my phone more than 8 months. I saw that my phone doesn’t support Bangla language by default, I can’t see any bangla letter in android browser. Can this issue be fixed in the latest update??? And how much time it would take to realease the new update with all the bugs fixed???

    For those having all sorts of keyboard problems:

    YOUR PHONE NEEDS TO BE ROOTED. GET A ROOT EXPLORER TO DO THIS.

    1. Copy “callisto_keypad3.kcm.bin” from “/system/usr/keychars” from 2.2 to sdcard.
    2. Rename it to “sec_keypad.kcm.bin”.
    3. Flash the phone to 2.3.6.
    4. Copy the renamed file to same location ie “/system/usr/keychars” in the new firmware.

    Hi Neal,

    Does this one allow running of the init scripts? I have some customizations that need the scripts to be run. (had revert to froyo from 2.3.4 due to this)

    • Reply NeaL Pradeep December 19, 2011 at 9:44 am

      yes, but for this you need to root the phone!

      • Reply Keyur December 21, 2011 at 5:43 pm

        This had not worked for me on the 2.3.4, even after rooting. That is because the init scripts could not be run at startup.
        So, I am asking the question again to clarify it better :
        In 2.3.6, is the startup any different, specifically to run the init scripts (after rooting)
        If that is so, do we have to do a soft reboot for mounting alternate partitions like for Link2SD

    Have my 551 on 2.3.6 now. Works fine except the keyboard problem previously described. Some more info: The scandinavian national letters ÆØÅ has also disappered and the $ and € is also swapped.
    To me it looks like the key to letter relation is hardcoded and Samsung has several physical layouts on the marked.

    Now the question is : If i go for this 2.3.6 firmware will i be able to see my default arabic back ? or is this a \europian-only\ firmware too ?
