How to Update Samsung Galaxy 551 I5510 to JPKD3 2.2 Arabic Firmware

galaxyAll those who have Samsung Galaxy 551 I5510 phones can now update their phones to JPKD3 Froyo 2.2 Arabic firmware version. Recently we have seen an updates of Asian and European versions and now this firmware update is of Arabic version. As, it is a language specific version so only the deserved users should apply this JPKD3 Froyo 2.2 firmware on their phones. Once the Gingerbread version update is available for the Arabic versions we assure you that we will provide you the updation process. So, as of now we continue with the updation process of JPKD3 Froyo 2.2 firmware on Samsung Galaxy 551 phones.

To apply this firmware update we use Odin flash tool and not the KIES, so users should be ready to use the Odin flash tool in order to apply this firmware on their phones. As this is not an official release through KIES we are using Odin tool and as soon as the official one is out in the market we will provide you the same. For the convenience users we have divided this whole article into few pages so that new users and experienced ones will understand the procedure easily.

Also remember that this firmware update will not root your phone and if your phone is already rooted then with upgrading to this firmware will unroot your phone. So, you need to root your phone again after this updation. We suggest you to apply this firmware update only if you are a deserved user or else there is a high probability of your device damage.

Most of the users get confused about the stock ROM and custom ROM so in the box below, we clearly mentioned the definitions of it, so go through the below box before starting the process of updation.
Stock ROM: Stock ROM is the built-in OS version of your phone that comes at the time of purchase.
Custom ROM: Custom ROM is a stand-alone version of the OS and developers will customize the OS in different ways, as Android OS is an Open sourced platform.
If your phone is rooted or you have any custom ROM installed, then just restart your phone and enter into the recovery mode. In the recovery mode choose the options like Wipe data/factory reset and Wipe Cache partition.

In the next page, we will see the instructions for updating your Samsung galaxy 551 phones to JPKD3 2.2 Arabic firmware.

    How can I install themes on Samsung Galaxy I5510? I downloaded theme files (.sis) on phone directly but unable to start the installation process.

    Msg – No application can perform this action?

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

      .sis is not supported by Android phones, you need to install files with .apk extension! there are nothing called “themes” in Android, in Android you need to install Custom ROMs to beautify your phone!

    Hello;

    I did it yesterday. I update my Samsung Galaxy I5510 to the Arabic Firmware. I was worry when I what to do it but at the end I did it. It successfully done.

    But there are many important parts missing on the instruction above:

    Part 1
    After I followed all the instruction, I run the Odin tool and I connect my phone to my laptop via USB cable and waiting to complete the driver installation, here Windows 7 says: Driver didn’t install correctly and the COM Port Mapping block didn’t turn into yellow color. I tried it in another laptop but same message. After I researched via Internet I figure it out that I need to install another software which is (SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones_x86.exe) to define all the Samsung drivers on Windows platform (I have this software but I don’t know how to post it). After I installed this software and did the all steps from the beginning, Now it does work and Windows 7 detect my phone driver and the COM Port Mapping block turned into yellow color and complete the update.

    Part 2
    I should run the phone on recovery mode and do the wipe data/factory reset and wipe cache partition. The hard part was: how to use the phone keyboard to select the option. I didn’t know at the first time and I couldn’t do it and then I turned my phone OFF an ON, many options wasn’t in there specially the Contact and the Messaging, they disappear, then I turned the phone OFF and ON again on recovery mode and beginning to try each key until I figure it out how to do it. After that, all the options and icons appear, and I changed the Language to Arabic.

    Part 3
    Everything was perfect except one thing: it doesn’t type the Arabic characters correctly, it was separately, it didn’t merge the character. so Like (رائد) it was (دئار), so then I said: the Arabic font which comes with this firmware is incorrect and I was right. I went to the Android Market and installed (Dr.Ben0x Arabic Fonts), of course after I rooted my phone cause this app needs rooted phone and then install the font and restart the phone, Now when I typing a message or anything shows correctly.

    I want to comment those things to get the users who would like to update to this firmware knowledge about those issues.

    Now My phone work in Arabic platform without any issue, it is Awesome. This is my first time seeing Android phone supporting Arabic Language perfectly.

    Thank you guys
