So first up let’s check out on what is the list of pre requisites you need to follow for your Galaxy Y Pro B5510 handset.

Essential Pre Requisites:

  • All the data present in your Samsung Galaxy Y Pro B5510 needs to be backed up so that just in case if any data gets lost or erased then the same can be restored easily with the help of below mentioned tips.

Note: Don’t use KIES to back up the data as since it’s a beta firmware it won’t be recognized by KIES.

Text messages – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Phone Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log - Call Log and Restore
Pictures, Music, Videos, Files etc.– Copy to internal / External SD Card,
Internet & MMS Settings – Backup all the settings from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

Notes – Manually you need to note down or need to transfer to Evernote.

  • Disable all the Antivirus programs in your computer till the firmware is updates, also disable the Firewall tools in your computer as these tools tend to interrupt the process of firmware update. Ensure that the battery level left in your device is minimum of 60% so as to ensure that the phone doesn’t get turned off in the middle of firmware update.

So, assuming that you have followed all the instructions mentioned above, it’s now time to proceed to the procedure mentioned in the next page so as to apply the update of Gingerbread 2.3.6.

    For everyone who has problems flashing B5510 do google search of ‘b5510 firmware lot of questions XDA’ and look at post #8 an #10

    (posts with direct links are deleted in this thread hence the google search)

    I also tried to update my B5510 using only the included PDA-file. I’m using Odin3 V1.85 to flash. I tried to flash with pit and without the pit file. The problem is that the zip files with the updated firmware for download only contain the PDA file. When I try to flash the PDA file I get the same error message.

    I’ve used google to see if there were more people with this problem and I found this thread on XDA: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=26251171

    In this tread the problem and message of flashing only the PDA are posted. On post #6 there are a couple of links to download a ZIP which contains all the necessairy files to flash an update. This means that not only the PDA but also the BOOT/MODEM/CSC are present.

    The flash went smooth. I’ve managed to flash:

    PDA_B5510DXKK1_REV03.tar.md5
    using:
    BOOT_B5510DXKK2_REV03.tar.md5
    GT-B5510-MULTI-CSC-OLBKK1.tar.md5
    MODEM_B5510DXKK2_REV03.tar.md5
    luisa_0623.pit

    My problem is that the PDA-file is for the Philippines. So the available lanquages are English and some others… but no Dutch or other European languages.

    – I’ve tried to flash again but with another PDA selected, but that gave a flash error. The flashing process didn’t start. My guess is that all the files need to be compatible
    – My USB drivers are fine, I’ve had a succesful flash in the past.

    Does anyone know how to flash the single PDA file?
    Does anyone know of a version of Odin for B5510 that lets you use the ‘single package’ option?
    Does anyone know where to download the right BOOT/CSC/MODEM files for other (preferably European) firmwares?

    Thanks!

    Hi all, I’m trying to upgrade my B5510 to 2.3.6 version but I always got the same problem as Masood. I try it on 2 computers but no success. Can someone help me, or give me some tip on how to solve it. BR.

    After I used a program to install a custom font, my Galaxy TXT (Same as y PRO) bricked. I did not expect that this is the second time my phone bricks unintentional, so first one got replaced.
    I have no problem booting my phone in ODIN mode, but ODIN cannot flash the firmware. When I put it in the PDA firmware box we get 5% progress then fail. If I put it in the Phone Box 40%

    ODIN Cannot flash the phone so I cannot repair my bricked device. I’m not happy at all, I am an computer expert fixing my phone should be easy. I guess if I had the needed .PIT file…. But who knows right, I dont and nobody has.

        Hello. Odin cannot flash this kind of firmware. I bricked my phone as well and I can say it’s not possible to flash it with Odin, I bought another phone (Samsung Galaxy ACE) and I’m happy with it. I should wait until someone works for a custom rom to get it back my GT-B5510.

        I hope someone knows how to flash it.

        Does the 2.3.6 update support Arabic language reading and writing?

        And thanks for the efforts.

        Hello, I saw this comment and I have got a GT-B5510L, I think the letter “L” is for “Latin-america” but I’m not sure about that. I could root my phone with a tutorial for GT-B5510 and It worked fine. I don’t know if this firmware support spanish language. Could you tell me that?.

        Thank you very much.

        PS: Sorry for my English :)
