        NeaL,

        on the last page (Page4) the last sentences are:

        I thought that it would upgrade into Gingerbread 2.3.4? why this sentences stated that “your Samsung Galaxy I5510 has now updated with XWKD4 Froyo 2.2 version”?..

        I really confused about this.. please help me out.. thanks..

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

        Thank You so much! :-)

        BTW, what should I do in the T+Power button, which is the Recovery mode?.. I really don’t know..
