How To Update Samsung Galaxy Gio S 5660 to Gingerbread XXKQ3 2.3.4 Firmware

Procedure to install Gingerbread 2.3.4 update in Galaxy Gio:

  • After downloading the Firmware Zip file for your Galaxy Gio S 5660, you will now have to save the same to your desktop. But after placing the same in your desktop, you will have to unzip the same so that all the tools in it can be unzipped. In the process of unzipping, you will be prompted to enter the password. At this point of time, enter the password as “androidadvices.com” without the inverted comas.

  • Once the files are unzipped, you will see the files which are mentioned in the below screen shot, please note that just in case any file is missing then you will have to re download the whole firmware again as the download wasn’t successful in this case.

Extracted Files Gio XXKQ3

  • Now, from the extracted files, open the Odin v 4.42 file as shown in the above extracted files and then a new window will be opening up as shown below,

  • After this, keeping the Odin tool opened on the desktop, you will have to enter your phone in the download mode but before that you will have to completely switch Off your phone. The device can be put in the download mode by holding the Volume Down button + the Home key button (the middle button). While holding these both buttons, you need to switch ON your device. If you have successfully entered into the download mode then you will see a green screen which is shown below. Also, additionally note that if the device boots in the normal mode with the home screen then you will have to again switch off the device and retry the process and if despite retrying you are unable to get into download mode then you will have to fix the download mode error for your phone.

  10. can you let me know which version is the most reliable?
    what do you suggest?

  11. If I upgrade to this version, will I be able to upgrade with Kies when an official version will be release?

    I mean, I had a Galaxy Mini, and upgrade it with ODIN from 2.1 to 2.2, but after that I couldnt upgrade to 2.3. It said \This firmware can’t be upgrade\ or something like that.

    Now on my Gio I upgrade it from 2.2.3 to 2.3.3, But I have to know for sure if I will be able to upgrade in future to an another official version trough KIES..

    And one more question. If something goes bad, is there a solution to backup this version (2.3.3 from KIES) somehow?

    Thanks. :)
