  65. I ve followed the tutorial but it didn t work (I waited more than 30 mns).
    Then i got a screen with a danger sign between a phone and a computer.
    I tried to access the recovery mode by pressing the middle key and the on button but it doesn t work.
    All what I can do is going back to download mode and try to install the firmware again.
    But I did it already 5 or 6 times (it s been 4 hours that I sit on the computer) and it still doesn t work.
    Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance:-)))

  66. when the ODIN starts the bellow statements are written:

    StartThread detected : 1

    StartThread detected : 0
    .
    .
    .
    Then it writes:

    Big partition size !!
    .
    .
    .
    and the last line is written:

    mibib download..

    Are these messages OK or they means that I should interrupt the ODIN?

    Are these the reason that ODIN never stops?

    Please please help me, I am panic, if it is better to download a lower firmware e.g. 2.3.5 or 2.3.4 please let me know. Because my cellphone still entered into downloading mode.

  67. can i update my galaxy mini s5570 to android 4.0 now ???????????????

  68. Hi.

    I updated my phone to the firmware version Gingerbread 2.3.6 JVKT1 via a download from one of the android websites. After the update which went smoothly, I noticed two applications that I am not sure if they are meant to be included in the original firmware, namely S-Android and SlimeME Marketplace, both types of market place applications. Are these applications intended to be part of this firmware or were they added on. I can’t uninstall them at all.

    Thanks.

  69. Dear Neal, Because it took so long (100 min) I replaced the battery and tried to redo the procedure, but the same thing happen, the odin does not finish.
    Now I am wondering it is better to try another firmware, for example 2.3.5 or 2.3.4 or the 2.3.6 which you have put for the galaxy pop. Will it solve ? Is there any other better way?

    When I tried to enter to recovery mode, some errors appeared, Memory Dump, or Emergency Dload Mode (ARM9).

    Also a PC picture which is connected to a Cellphone picture via a danger sign.

    I am from Iran, and my Android version was 2.2.1 Froyo

  70. I followed the mentioned instructions. However its about 100 minute that my cellphone is in downloading mode and ODIN’s timer is still counting. What should I do? What does this situation mean? Why the upgrade process does not finish in the predicted period (30 min)?

  71. im not able to transfer it to my phone through odin multi downloader is there any other way?it is showing failed and ive tried it 6 to 7 times

  72. I m having galaxy fit.just bought in india
    and firmware version is 2.3.4 ddkq5
    so is it latest version or i want to root my cell
    and is my cell needed overclocking???????

  73. is this jvkt1 usable in germany in german language with modem that supports germany?

  74. hi,

  75. hey pradeep the zip file i downloaded is showing error that files are corrupted plz help

  76. Is it latest version for galaxy pop ?
    and can i directly update 2.2.1 into 2.3.6 ?

  77. Hi Pradeep,

    Is firmware is ok to use in my region Pakistan?

    Note: After reading above mentioned comments, i think it is suitable for my Galaxy Mini GT-S5570 smart phone.

    I’m looking forward your quick and polite response.

    Thanks in advance,

    Irfan Baig.

  78. cannot download the package. can you give us a mirror link?

  79. Hi…

    I have SGM with Android 2.3.5 (GINGERBREAD.WKMPE) Latin version firmware
    and already rooted my phone too. Can I upgrade to 2.3.6, that in this article
    using marocco firmware?

    If I want to update it, is necessary to me to unroot my phone first or not?

    How long estimate time for upgrade to android 2.3.5?
    (For previous version 2.3.4 and 2.3.5, is just need arround 5 munutes)

    Thanks..

    Regards

    M Dony

  80. I updated my SGM to 2.3.6 few weeks back, no problems. I only had to change language and add Scandinavian keyboard.

    It’s just amazing how much patience you Pradeep and NeaL have. People just don’t get it, read the instructions first, do it by the instructions, then it will work. No need to contact anyone unnecessarily.

    Other thing is that so many want to try firmware for wrong device, don’t they know what they have? Weird. And that Icecream Sandwich, why people just don’t read official Samsung news. Firmware does not make one device completely another, it’s just software… To upgrade hardware, they should go to store and buy a \better\ one.

    Btw, Adobe Flash seems to be available for Mini, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1155071 but cannot guarantee it works.

    Anyway, Keep up the good work! Thanks and happy new year!! :)

  81. why one package has green dot?

  82. odin doesnt detect my phone in download mode help asap. t.t

  83. hi can i still use this Gingerbread 2.3.6 JVKT1 Zip Package in updating my SGM for the future firmwares

  84. hi can i use this Gingerbread 2.3.6 JVKT1 Firmware in updating to future firmwares??

  85. the downloading of the Gingerbread 2.3.6 JVKT1 Firmware takes a long time. sort of nervous my SGM is so new.

  86. Froyo 2.2 was installed on my S5570 when I purchased the cellphone. I updated the firmware to 2.3.3 (Gingerbread XXKPF 2.3.3). After updating it was in a language I could not understand but eventually sorted that issue – I now have English (New Zealand). Gingerbread XXKPF 2.3.3 seems to be working just fine but Kies is telling me the device is not supported – assume that is because I am not using the correct firmware.

    To help me understand what is required for correct firmware, I ask the following questions:-
    1. To use the region firmware applicable to New Zealand – what is the filename of the firmware called?
    2. How do I obtain that file?
    3. What is the filename of the New Zealand Froyo version 2.2 as I am wondering whether I should be going back to the original firmware and starting with the correct firmware?
    4. How do I obtain that file?

    Your expert advice would be appreciated, please.

    Kind regards

  101. wow!!! i have just downloaded it and everything is fine i guess for now…i hope for good!! haha! but the only issue is that its in another language and i have forgotten where i can find the language option …where do i find it?

  102. wat r d changes betweeen 2.3.5&2.3.6..?
    n is 2.3.6 having wifi issues as 2.3.5 has it.?

  103. Never mind, i just had to reboot the phone and there it was, SWEDISH. :P thank you, phone has never been this fast before!!

  104. Ok, i fone the update from 2.2.1 and when i was finished my phone was in turkey, there is no English or Swedish, or Finnish , witch are the languages that i understand, what now?

  105. 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.

    So why does it say that above about the flash player?

  112. Hi guys.
    I was in the process of upgrading my galaxy mini, my Odin took so long before flashing my firmware, out of impatience, I disconnected my the U.S.B cable…currently my phone is not working, if I shut it on it only displays images of phone and comp on the screen with an exclamation mark in between the two. I KINDLY REQUEST FOR AN URGENT ASSISTANCE

  113. How long will it take to finish the process?

  114. Is this process normally takes a long time? I’m doing the steps and its more than 20 minutes and its not done. Is possible to end the process without completing it? I tried it but my phone will not boot anymore. Any help please.

  125. Hi there. I just got my Samsung Galaxy MINI 2 weeks before, and I am enjoying it.
    I started reading about the android versions and so I got here.
    The performances of the phone are:

    -Model number: GT-S5570
    -Android version: 2.2.1,
    -Baseboard version: S5570XXB1
    -Kernel version: 2.6.3.2.9-perf
    root@SE-S608 #1
    -Build Number: FROYO.XVKC1

    So my question is, what will get better in my phone if I make this update.
    I mean I am not quite an expert in these things, and I wouldn’t like to take the risk to make this update if nothing major changes in my phone. I wouldn’t want to end up with my phone screwed.

    Sorry for dumb question, but I am pretty \amateur\ to Android phones.

    Thanks in advance.
