    Hi Friends,

    I have upgraded my Galaxy FIT from Fyro to 2.3.6..

    after that I was looking for ICS 4.0.3 and for that I did a custom root for my device and then going in to recovery mode I have upgraded to ICS..

    After upgrading to ICS I found there is a lot of issue, like Mute is not working, then Camra, Keyboard etc so now I am looking for going back to 2.3.4 or 2.3.6 any one suitable.

    Can any one suggest the steps to follow.

    Appreciate any suggestions.

    • Pradeep Neela

      but this is the Gingerbread version, just follow the instructions and update the same!

      • Dev

        Thanks for your reply Pradeep..

        I am trying to follow the instruction to upgrade to gingerbread like
        go to download mode , use OPS and main package in Odin s/w etc but it is not working?

        I doubt that it will work as I have rooted my device to custom rom for installing ICS version.. Do I again need to root it back to previous version?

        • Dev

          Btw Currently I am at ICS 4.0.3 version and I want to downgrade to Gingerbread ..

          • Pradeep Neela

            YES DEV YOU CAN DOWNGRADE TO THE SAME!

  • S.PARTHIBAN

    Prior to update the wifi at my home and office was working great. After the update, im not able to download anything in my phone. Always return a data connectivity error though I had set my wifi account properly after the installation and it is logging in to my account.

  • S.PARTHIBAN

    Lot of things I had lost after the update though it was a clean installation- I had lost my Gmail, samsung applications, maps and android market itself. Now they can not be downloaded as android market application is not available in my phone after the update. All the applications you had downloaded can not be downloaded again in android market.

    I am at huge loss – No one from india should try this update as the firmware is chinees. Even if you change language settings, the chineese version is at the back of each and every application after the install.

      you can reflash the device!

    • tilak

      Everything is fine with your phone.actually its more about bug fixes than providing new features.best thing is you will get best battery back up possible with this version.i have tried it myself and was quite surprised.If GPS is not working try clearing the cache or factory reset,or you can reflash ,it will work.

        problems while updating

  • Shee

    hi Neal,

    Please help!!! I’ve accidentally deleted all my contacts but it’ll fine because i can make a back up copy of numbers. problem is, the “Contacts” Icon didn’t showed up anymore in my homescreen. Instead of (4) icons on my dashboard, it only displays 3….im afraid that it may caused some boot-up problems since i can not find it there but it’s still accessible in my launcher menu. Can you please guide me on how to fix this? Thank you :((

      Sorry to hear that, kindly update your phone once again!

  • Hozefa Zaki

    Thanks for the amazing guide. Managed to upgrade to 2.3.4 successfully.
    After phone reboot, you said “you will have see the home screen and then choose the options accordingly”.
    Unfortunately these options came in Russian, so I just clicked next.
    Now Ive changed the locale and text to English so my phone works.
    But I dont know what were these options that I could have selected.
    1. Could you please provide a screen shot or explanations of the options, so I know what I missed out on.
    2. Is there a way to get these options again, so I can choose them correctly.

    I appreciate the great article and your help.

    • Hozefa Zaki

      The messages were about the GPS, wether you wish to enable it or not.

    Hello Pradeep sir and and all guys.

    Thank you so much for your comment and wonderful tutorial for Updating Galaxy FIT to
    Android Ginger Bread 2.3.4 version of XXPI.

    A have previously i updated my Galaxy FIT to 2.3.4 of XXPG version and i am facing two problems

    1) USB Connection problem to use mass storage option.
    2) Battery Power consumption is more.

    Please fix this bugs in next version.
    Plz provide way by which we can downgrade to original Froyo version

    In final version of update i would like to suggest following features

    1) Direct MASS storage option, with out need kies for it.
    2) New version has pre installed applications like converters, Compass such free apps.
    3) Adobe flash player support.
    4) Need better battery optimization.
    4) User Interface should can have better look.Samsung need to work more on it.

    And plz suggest me should i upgrade my My phone to this version or wait for official release,
    And are this updates for ASIA region.

    I am waiting for replay.

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

      you can update your phone with this version!

  • lokesh

    My Galaxy FIT does not recognize my touch on lock screen so not able to unlock the phone most often.
    after restarting again and again also it does not works, stuck on the lock screen.
    then suddenly it starts detecting touch and runs flawlessly.and after sometime same problem comes,it stuck on lock screen and dont detect touch for hours and days.

    this problem was there before installing 2.3.4 version also so its nothing to do with this firmware.

    now i have done factory reset and it is stuck on first screen itself(asking for location service without GPS)
    i am planning to take this to service center tomorrow.

    now my question is whether they will accept it under warranty or i would be left with the excuse for installing to unofficial 2.3.4 version??? shall i revert it back to froyo before taking to service center??????

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

      yes they will accept the phone and we will soon come up with article to update with the Froyo version! You can try flashing the firmware again!

      • lokesh

        Thanks Neal Pradeep again for quick response !!

    • Rajesh Sharma

      Hi Lokesh,
      I have the same reservation. I need to take the phone for a hardware fault, and I feel that they might reject the replacement due to unofficial upgrade. You know how they function here in India..

  • radubalanpro

    But how to root the device ?

  • Amit

    Testing this

  • lokesh

    once entered into download mode is it possible to come out of it without installing software or we have to anyhow install any firmware if one we entered in download mode?????????

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

      yes, all you need to do is to just pull the battery out and restart the phone normally!

  • lokesh

    Please provide android 2.2 froyo asian version on your site.

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

      sure lokesh we will soon come out with the article!

    Hi Neal,

    I successfully installed the gingerbread. I want to go back to my original factory installed Froyo. Can you please advice how to achieve that.

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

      Within the next 72 hours we will surely update the site to get back to Froyo!

      • Rajesh Sharma

        Thanks a lot. Waiting eagerly as I need to take the phone to the authorized service center to get a replacement as this device has developed a technical snag with the home menu button. I am worried that they might not replace the device if they find out that I have upgraded to the unofficial OS Gingerbread.
        Awaiting eagerly..

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

          don’t worry! don’t mention about the version name and anything like that! You will be helped out !

      • tilak

        download this one S5670XXKB1.its 100% original but its European,change the language to English and everything will be fine because many handsets in India are being sold with European firmware and not the Indian or Asian version.Mine came with European firmware.

    hi Sir Neal,

    i would like to ask on how will i be able to access the Android Market since my APN and wifi are all working great. It just so happened that whenever i need to signed in through google account, it says, “This could be temporary problem or your phone may not be provisioned for data services.” but when i tried searching for other sites, it responded so fast. Can you please help me with that? THanks!

    • Shee

      no need, i got it neal.. :) just needed to enable factory reset.

  • Vipul

    Hey thank you so much.. I upgraded successfully. But I dont know how to go to recovery mode and delete all cache. Please let me know of that.

    • Shee

      just press and hold home menu (middle button) + Power ON key..wait until the samsung logo appears… then Release (free-up from pressing buttons) that will display the Recovery Mode options.. USE THE VOLUME UP AND DOWN TO SCROLL AND HOME MENU (MIDDLE) TO SELECT FROM IT.

  • Prayl

    last update drains battery too fast.. hope this one is fixed.

    • tilak

      I don’t think so,last update was good enough in terms of battery backup and this one is too good.
      I think battery problem was due to unstable packet data and signal strength which is very well managed now.

        Hi Neal,

        I have just bought the Galaxy fit and I don’t have much knowledge about these tech things. One thing I noticed that when I connect the phone to my PC, in notifications it says USB debugging.. Should I turn it off? or if I dont what will happen?
        Please help.

        Thanks in advance.
        You guys are awesome. I saw ur responses. I hope companies manage to response like u guys do.

          usb debugging helps you to connect your phone in the mass storage mode! let it be!

    Thanks! What’s updated in regards to the June 2nd XEKPG version?

      Nothing new,a lots of bug fixes and USB storage mode problem resolved.But its lot more faster and better.Although older versions of few applications are having problem on this one,that’s because this one is entirely new and they were not meant to be compatible with this version

        its disappointing that APN problem has not been resolved.You have to configure it manually.Frayo was better in this regard since it automatically save APN settings the moment you insert a new SIM card.
