How to Update Samsung Galaxy 551 I5510 to XWKPH 2.3.6 Firmware

galaxyPreviously we have seen various firmware versions for your Galaxy 551 I5510 mobiles like XWKPG, XWKPB, XWKP5 etc. Now, we bought you the all new latest version of XWKPH 2.3.6 Gingerbread firmware. This latest firmware was released in Hungary and so all the European users of this mobile can make their mobiles run on this latest firmware version. So, we request all the other users, no to try this firmware update as there is a high chance of device damage.

To apply this firmware update we are going to use Odin flash tool and the usage of this tool will be known to you in further pages. There is no need to root your phone for applying this firmware update and if your phone is already rooted, then it will be unrooted after applying this firmware update.


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.

    My power key does not work at all, instead, on pressing the home key it comes up with those 3 options of turn off, airplane mode and silent mode. Also there is no other key through which I can use the functions of a home key.
    In such a situation can you please help me in entering the download mode without power key working. I’ve even tried pressing the home key and Q, still nothing happens, instead google search comes up with infinite Qs in its query box.

    Please help me.

    I had installed E2 energy saver app for my Samsung galaxy i5510 with XWKPG 2.3.6 android firmware. Due to that there was issue with the cell vibrator. the vibrator has gone weak.. I uninstalled the application, but still the vibrator has gone weak. It vibrates inconsistently.
    I have even done my part to set the Vibrator to Always setting from Sound Setting; but no avail.

    can someone help me ASAP please ? missing calls due to this issue when kept on silent/vibrator mode during office hours !

    After reading the entire article and after going through all the coments, i really appreciate Pradeep Neela’s work. keep up the good work.

    Before upgrading my Samsung Galaxy i5510 from 2.2 (Froyo) to 2.3.6 (GingerBread, i have got following querys

    After upgradation:
    1.Will I be able to make Skype Video call (As 2.3 GingerBread supports Video calling)
    2.Will the battery back-up improve (as GingerBread claims to comsume less batery)
    3.If i face any proble with my device after upgradation will I be able to downgrade it back to its original OS (2.2 Froyo)? if yes, how?

    Hello! The update worked well for me, except for one very minor annoyance:

    on my physical keyboard, the letters “G” and “H” are supposed to type “%” and “^” respectively, when holding down “ALT”…
    instead, when i press them i get “โ‚ฌ”(for “G”) and “%” (for “H”). any fixes to this?

    thanks in advance!

    love all the work you all do here.

    • Miggy

      February 29, 2012 at 10:36 pm

      oh i just wanted to add that the ‘.’ (period) key also doesnt give the proper ‘alt’ function. when pressing alt, the ‘.’ key should become ‘.com’ but instead it becomes ‘ ” ‘ (double quotation marks). just wanted to add this to my post already. ๐Ÿ™‚

    minor bug i have found – after using headphones to listen to music the speaker on the phone does not come back on when you remove the headphones. You have to reboot the phone. A bit annoying.

    • Korak Mitra

      February 23, 2012 at 12:13 am

      I think That is a Standard Android Feature..
      it pauses the music player..

    hello! thanks for this easy update, I had no problem in updating the os.

    I have a question, I bought my samsung 551 but it came with the AZERTY keyboard (the french one) instead of the normal QWERTY one, I did the update and now my keyboard does not works as it should, the letters are changed and when I press the letter a it comes instead the letter q, and so on with so many letters the letter “m” is in the place of “,” so you can imagine what a mess it is…

    I hope you can help me. I did this update since the phone came with so many useless apps that only worked with the french operator (ORANGE) and only occupied space and making annoying errors notifications constantly.
