Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 – Steps to Update Official DDKPI Gingerbread 2.3.6 Firmware

DDKPI Galaxy SL LogoSamsung Galaxy I9003 users now have a reason to cheer as we last reported that Samsung Discontinued the support for this phone has now surprisingly come out with the Official Gingerbread 2.3.6 version. This update will be pushed via KIES very soon but as a privilege of Android ADVICES reader, you can now apply this update directly without you needing to wait to update the phone from the KIES Samsung Official tool. We personally recommend you to apply this Gingerbread 2.3.6 update right away as we understand that most of the users might be on the beta versions of the firmware for which KIES is not supported. The only way to update is by following this article. This all new Official Gingerbread 2.3.6 update for Galaxy SL I9003 is dubbed as DDKPI. The best part is that it’s the Official update from Samsung Electronics Ltd. Also, soon a new beta version of Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 will be available for Galaxy SL I9003 which too we will be covering on androidadvices.com. This ROM for Galaxy SL I9003 will surely be called as a Kolaveri Di ROM for Android as its an official Gingerbread 2.3.6 Official update.

Note: Please note that this update should only be applied to the phones which bear the model number as “Samsung Galaxy SL I9003”. Also, Galaxy SL GT I9003 as well as Galaxy SL I9003 are both the same phones. This update is an Official release for users in INDIA, though users from other country too apply this update as this is not a Boot loader update.

Happy BIT: If you are from India and was having issues like phone not connecting with the KIES, then you need not worry any more as this firmware of Gingerbread 2.3.6 DDKPI supports KIES. Also just in case if you have rooted and lost the warranty, then after applying this update  you can reclaim the lost warranty and all future updates can be applied from KIES.

Rooting Information:

  • Applying this firmware doesn’t require you to root the phone and also applying this firmware won’t root the phone which means that the warranty too won’t be void.
  • If you are already on the rooted firmware then the rooting access will be revoked after applying with this firmware.

    Hi Neel,
    After updating MWP player 11,I got connected to Kies. I have updated my mobile with kies to DDKP2 GB 2.3.6.
    I appriciate your devotion. Thank U.

    Hi Neal,
    I did as you said. I updated Kies to ver.2.1.1.11124_17, thats the latest one, and also updated my mobile to DDKP2.
    I know its installed because I checked it in Settings. Now the problem is, the icons have still not changed, nor has the lock screen. I have seen some GB devices, and they have a different UI and icons that Froyo. Are the icons in my mobile the default ones? Do they belong to Samsung, and hence they are not changing? There is no difference in my mobile after I updated it to GB except for the menu and the home screen. They are now in a loop, previously they were not.
    Does updating to GB help? I didnt notice any speed change, or increased battery.
    Also, is it true that Samsung is rolling out Android 4.0 ICS to all Samsung Galaxy S devices?
    If so, then will ICS come on Galaxy SL i9003 too?
    Sorry for asking so many questions once again, but I really cant help it..
    Thanks,
    Chinmay

    Also, I would like to ask you something.
    My latest build number is DDKP1… I checked Samsung Kies today, it said that I have a latest update, i.e. DDKP2
    What my problem is, that it doesnt recognise my device at all. It detected my device the first time I tried, but my battery was below 50%, so I charged it again, but now it is not detecting y device at all. I mean, the phone charges, but is undetectable. I tried the Connection Troubleshoot, but even then it doesnt detect my cell.
    Also, is the Update you have given above Official? Will it void the warranty? When will ICS get released on the SL?
    Also, when my phone got updated to Gingerbread, all the icons and shortcuts remained the same as they were in Froyo. I have seen my friends GB device, and it has a whole lot of different icons and shortcuts. Even the menu was different. Why is that?
    I am sorry for asking to many questions, but I cant really help it…

Also, will everything work without problems? OK, I imagine there will be some differences in some apps behaviour, but I can live with that. With a complete wipe, I can’t ;)

    There is no issue with talk notifications / IM.
    If I use an application which keeps the phone awake I get instant notifications of mails, but the application drains the battery.
    If it is an issue with the notifications not coming thru since the CPU is in deep sleep, how come the talk notifications come thru?
    Have tried clearing cache and factory reset in recovery mode, but still the issue remains.

    1) no visual or graphical difference is there
    2) only the base band version is showing new number every time when i updates
    3) important change is quiet increase in speed
    4) i didn’t find any increase in battery life
    5) while switching on at wifi at open connection the wifi is not getting off rather living with an option to switch of the mobile
    6)still KIES did not detect my mobile don’t know why \ do I have to connect with updated version of KIES beacuse having old version\.
    7)GPS is also not showing any accuracy

    and while installing all your release i am strictly adhereing all your instruction

    a request from you is now if you release some updates then please do some visual & graphical changes also because people now a days people are more attracting toward some visual effect also

    this is it from me, other then that every thing is working fine after every updates

    When the phone restarted with Gingerbread, my applications, contacts, messages were already there (didn’t get formatted during upgrade).
    I have got root privileges as well (had rooted 2.2.1 for Set CPU & Titanium Backup). I can take application backups & change CPU frequency now also.. So is my phone upgraded properly? As you mentioned above that Rooting access will be revoked…

    The compressed .rar file does open with WinRar. Problem is after it opens and when I tried to extract it, it says this, “! E:\GalaxySL_I9003_DDKPI_2.3.6.rar: CRC failed in the encrypted file GT-I9003_INU_I9003DDKP1_I9003ODDKPH_I9003DDKP4\I9003DDKP1_I9003ODDKPH_I9003DDKP4_HOME.tar.md5 (wrong password ?)”

    any solution? the file opens after entering the password. but Odin got extracted but when the md5 needed to be extracted it said this.

    need help asap guys or my 192mb data is just wasted.

    Neal,
    After reading all the above, all my Qs answered. Thanks for all your support and efforts.
    I’m moving from XXKPQ to DDKPI. I’m glad not to wipe/clear cache after update. That’s a big relief.
    So far, XXKPQ works safe&sound, fine&great. Hope the same from DDKPI.
    And, WAITING for ICS un-official version. THANKS IN ADVANCE.
    Best regards. – SD.

    The updates that are provided here are not at all official. The reason I am saying this is that when I connected the mobile to the PC, the device detected was I9000 instead of I9003. Also the customer care executive said that this is not the official update as well as the warrantee has been cancelled, by trying this update. Thank you for your good work.
