    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!

      Hi Marius,
      Could you kindly tell me how you did this. It seems like a less complicated method and you seem to have done it successfully.
      Thanks much

    The link to the file mentioned in the instructions (Galaxy mini Firmware Package) leads to another (older?) file than is shown in the text and in the picture.

      download ‘android assistant’ application. you can backup your installed applications to memory cars as .apk files and you can re install it, you can even share that files throuh bluetooth
