    Hi there,

    I think something is going wrong: the file: “S5570DXKPD_S5570OLBKPD_S5570DXKPD_HOME.tar.md5”,that should be clicked in Odin is not in the package: Android v2.3.6 GingerBread XWKTN as is said in the text. So it is impossible to get the right file. Please can you give me the solution for this problem? What file should be used and where can we get that file??
    Thanks in advance!
