Caution (Not for INDIAN users): Don’t backup the data using the KIES as after the update KIES won’t be detecting your phone as its not Official firmware for your region.

Text messages – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Phone Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log - Call Log and Restore
Pictures, Music, Videos, Files etc.– Copy to internal / External SD Card,
Internet & MMS Settings – Backup all the settings from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

Notes – Manually you need to note down or need to transfer to Evernote.

  • Charge left in the device should be minimum 60% so as to make sure that the phone doesn’t get turned Off in the middle of firmware update. Enable the USB Debugging in your device from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”.

USB Debugging

  51. Hi Pradeep Neela,
    I have updated the firmware in download mode.
    I didn’t clear the cache/data in recovery mode as it is not mentioned in your tutorial.
    Is it fine if I don’t clear the cache?
    So far, I don’t have any problem with anything. The version shows updated.
    Please let me know if cache/data has to be cleared in recovery mode to be 100% compliant.

  52. i want arabic FONTS in my mobile ply reply me ………

  53. Downloaded and applied the upgrade successfully:

    RESULTS:
    1) Much more staple than the froyo, no lags
    2)FASTER
    3)Awesome Battery life as compared to previous ROM

    PROBLEMS FACED
    1) Self start up (solved with wipe data/cache in recovery mode)
    2) No screenshot(solved with market app)
    3) Slow version of market app(my net aint that fast- replaced with froyo stock market)

    HOW I DID:
    1) Charged the battery to full
    2) Kies installed on my windows 7(kies came with your phone in mini cd form, or you can download again)
    3) wipe data/cache in recovery mode before flashing
    3) Removed SIM and Flash card (i just wanted to have a fresh start)
    4) Followed the guide

    AND Voila….. Android 2.3.6 on my galaxy fit!!!! Thanks to Pradeep Neela!!

    Niraj

  66. you have confirmed that Samsung will not let the official update of ICS for Fit.

    Will you be releasing ICS as an unofficial firmware. does anyone working on the same.

  67. As per Dinesh Sharma above, if it hasn’t gone to google account, but the firmware build number is showing has the update worked correctly?

  68. Had the same happen to me too, working fine but no noticeable changes other than the firmware settings?

  69. Hello sir,

    I am unable to download the update package. Kindly update the link.

    it is showing 500 internal server error……

    :-)

    Thank you

  71. HI neal,

  72. Devi Prasad Khatua

    Sir is it possible to update to the above on my galaxy fit running on cyanogenmod 7.2

  73. hi frnd
    samething im also facing…did u get any solution for it

  74. hi frnds…
    now tis linkin is downloading…so download and update ur mobile…i had downloaded it and now gng to uodate it….

  75. Done and working fine ….so far so good… But I have few questions. It was mentioned that device will get started and ll ask for Google accounts… It did nt ask me….moreover, all my installed applications were as it as…. no change and also didnt lose my data… I was not able to go to Recovery mode as well….. it was just flashing message: RAMDUMP Mode (ARM9 mode)…and hence was not able to do”Reboot system now” as mentioned in the process. But I can see under settings that my system is upgraded to 2.3.6 and build number: GINGERBREAD.DDKT1….. is there anything wrong ?

    • to go to recovery mode
      1.pess middle key + powerON hey simultaneously…

      donot press the volume Up key..

      when u go in the recovery mode
      1. wipe data
      2. wipe cache then do reboot system now

      and wait and b patient the phone will take nearly 15mins for boot up and then 10 mins more for memory card scan let it all get finished then go to setting–>accountsand add your google accont.

      Here instructions are wrong for entering the recovery mode on Galaxy Fit..

      • You are right Anjan !
        Here instructions are wrong for entering the recovery mode on Galaxy Fit !

  82. Download not working…… update link

  83. u can download update

  84. i flashed my phone with this update. This is very heavy and buggy. But this is latest kies says that this is latest version.

  85. I am unable to see my comments posted 2 days back. I connected my Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670 via USB connector to my laptop and switched on KIES. In Kies there is a mention of Firmware upgrade to Gingerbread DDKT1 2.3.6 Firmware. You click on yes for the upgrade and the upgrade starts automatically. You don’t have to undergo any hassles or procedures mentioned by you and the upgrade process is very smooth.

    Please inform if anything is wrong in following up this procedure? As well as what are the advantages if we follow your route of upgradation ?

  94. Why undertake all the trouble? Just connect your Galaxy Fit via USB cable to your computer and start Kies. The firmware downloads systematically on to the computer and then to the phone. I did the same and it worked very smoothly.

  95. still the link is not working brother pradeep
