    I am new to this forum, but hope I get a answer soon. I have a Samsung GT-S5360 which keeps switching off after a call is over & restarts all over again. When I checked the Kies software, it said there is an upgrade. Below are the details –



    But when I try to update, after downloading, I get an error message

    Failed to run firmware upgrade. Unknown error occurred.

    Please advise.

    I live in India and have Galaxy y s5360 with DDLA2; the stock ROM is functional only partly as some of the applications I deleted by rooting the phone and uninstalling some bloatware which happened to be Sys apps 🙁 Any way I unrooted the phone but can not get any of those apps nor can I even access android market. Can I now flash this DDLA1 using Odin and get back to original functionality? I’d appreciate your help. I can then connect to Kies and upgrade to DDLA2. Thanks very much.

    Hi guys, I’m trying to update the firmware and still facing the same problem. USB drivers.
    I think you should provide us the drivers or at least the link with the correct drivers in order to recognize the device.
    I have the current version 2.3.6, but with little bug when receiving call. The volume is very low so I wanted to fix that with this new posted above.

    PS: The version i’m using here is: GT-S5360B

    Which is a newer release (with more recent version of the firmware routines), DDLA1 or DXKL2? I have now the DXKL2, but I am hesitant to flash DDLA1 noting that DDxxx is specific for India region.

      DDLA1 is official for Indian users

        BIG thanks for the update, I just tried it and it works! This upgrade to 2.3.6 also resolves the “Samsung Galaxy Y restart after call disconnect” issue.
