Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 – Steps to Install Enhanced Gingerbread DXKJ3 2.3.6 Firmware

Samsung Galaxy Y LogoUsers facing issues with the firmware of DXKJ3 can now breathe easy as it was found that last firmware which we covered was buggy and we really apologize for the same and in this article we have corrected the issues with the same file as we have now got an all new firmware file for the same. This version of Gingerbread 2.3.6 firmware is dubbed as 2.3.6 version of Gingerbread. This version of firmware is the enhanced version to what we saw earlier as most of the phones didn’t get updated to.

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 Y S5360 which is a very unlikely event if you follow the instructions carefully.

In the due course we will see on what are the list of Pre Requisites one has to follow before proceeding to applying this firmware on your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 Android phone.

Rooting Information:
Applying this firmware to your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 will not root the device in any manner. Also, just in case if you have rooted the device earlier then the rooting will be revoked and you can claim back the lost warranty. Just in case if you wish to root your phones then we will soon come up with the rooting article.

For all those who doesn’t know What Rooting Is? Then we would like to tell you in a simple one liner that Rooting is basically a technique wherein the third party tools or apps are given the permission to access the system level files for required customizations in the form of Custom ROMs and other tweaks.

    I bought my sumsung galaxy young but I didn’t have the CD in my package so how am I going to do?

  • reiko

    i reformat my phone and my infos on gmail dissapeared can this be the solution so i can bring back mydatas regarding to that?

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      Yes all the data is gone unless you backup earlier. The format would generally be used to make your phone clean and remove all the previous data and settings.

  • Karen

    does wiping the data will only reset again the update?

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      Wiping actually reset’s or removes all the settings, your personal data which you have had earlier input when you started using the phone. Includes your basic settings, APN, Wifi Logins and so on.

  • Regin

    I’ve successfully updated the firmware using Kies. Here are the facts that i would like to share.

    1. Kies won’t update your phone if you are connected to the Internet using 3G USB Modem.

    ** I was able to update my phone using a guest OS (windows 7) running inside Vmware workstation.

    2. Using windows 7 the kies driver installed when the phone is running (OS Loaded) is a different driver if your phone is in the Download mode.

    **I have to set my phone in download mode then install driver by allowing the system to download drivers online. (kies driver doesn’t work if the phone is in download mode)

    The baseband version of my phone is now S5360DXKK2.

    • tejas

      hey regin can you pls elaborate the above thing.And kies is not detecting my phone as i have updated to the above firmware by androidadvices.com…so do you have any idea how kies will detect my phone?

  • el terrible

    NeaL my phone is rooted if I used the method above the enhance will my root galaxy y will be unroot?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

  • tejas

    hey neal pls pls pls provide me any official indian firmware for galaxy y s5360..pls,i want any official india whether 2.3.5 or 2.3.6 because in kies when i connect my phone it says this version cannot be updated(as i downloaded 2.3.6 from your site).so, i want any indian firmware so that kies detect my phone for update.
    or,
    do you have any alternative solution without changing firmware?

    but try as far as possible to give me an official indian(that start from s5360DD…..)

    • tejas

      actually i found an original firmware but it requires multi downloader odin because it is in one package(only one file) and i searched the whole forum for s5360 multi downloader odin so that i can enable one package button and update it…so neal now there is three option for you and you can provide me with any of the one option that is
      1. give me any official indian firmware so that kies detect my phone for update.
      2.any alternative solution if you have so that kies detect my phone(it is not detecting because i updated a firmware from your site)
      3.give me a multi downloader odin for galaxy y s5360 to enable one package button..

      pls pls help i think you might have solution from any of the three options above

      • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

        which was your official version, please give us the version name and number!for kies to detect,
        you need to be on official firmware,
        its all packed in the zip file!

      • Ashish Sharma

        Hy Tejas

        According to your comment i m providing Multidownloader Odin soft. The option is available for one package MD5 file in this software. But i am not succeed. Please try your self.

      • tejas

        hey someone have provided me with multi downloader odin link
        but the above link is not for samsung galaxy y and it is for galaxy ace and that is why samsung galaxy y is not detecting.we want multi downloader odin for galaxy y….

        now, this is question to you neal-
        i updated to your firmware and after some days its back key and menu key are not responding.So i went to samsung mobile service centre to make it repair and there they told me that your firmware is not official and now warranty is void..but,seriously neal i have never rooted my phone,i only updated my phone to this firmware.i dont know why service centre are making issues as i also know that rooting is different and upgrading to unofficial firmware is different.so that is why neal i was asking for ooficial indian firmware so that i can update to it and repair my phone…give me 2.3.6 DDKK1 BUT MAKE SURE THAT IF YOU PROVIDE COMBINE PACKAGE THEN ALSO PROVIDE MULTI ODIN WITH IT…

        • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

          hey tejas, we really apologize for the same! we will soon come up with the new firmware!

        i am talking about 2.3.6 DDKK1
        BUT,i told you that any other official indian firmware will do because as the kies will detect i will update it to latest.
        why i am in need for that because-
        my back button and menu button is not properly responding.so, i went to samsung service centre and they are saying that my firmware is not official and they will charge to repair back key and menu key.
        I am my warranty card since i have bought just a month back but they are saying that your warranty is now void because firmware is not official.i know that actually warranty does not void as you mentioned above but how do i make them understand so i am in need for any official indian firmware launched by kies

      • Ashish Sharma

        Hy Neal

  • Arshavin

    THANKS!
    When I pulled the battery out yesterday without switching off the phone to change the sim—on reboot my phone would only show the boot screen,sensing trouble I tried everything like pulling out battery and all,over and over again but it didn’t work,so I tried to get into recovery–and boy….I was shocked that even recovery didn’t work,just the boot screen again.Then I tried the download mode and was I relieved or what!It worked I realized I only had to flash to get my phone back to work,so no Samsung Service Center was required,I sighed because I had already rooted my phone.This post helped me get a working firmware and I flashed my phone with it and voila!It worked,so thanks again.Although this is temporary because I don’t want an Indonesian firmware on my phone I will download an European firmware or an Indian If I can find one.

    Hello Neal,

    I have downloaded the firmware files and tried to upgrade as per the prescribed procedure but am not able to get through.
    Before Proceeding I have done the below…
    1. Turned off Antivirus
    2. Turned off Firewall
    3. Re-installed Samsung USB drivers.

    I do get Yellow in Odin after I select the files and click on start the process gets stuck at SetupConnection. Below is the log

    Added!!
