    Is this update rooting the phone or just an update to Gingerbread 2.3.5? As far as I know Samsung Galaxy Wonder already has 2.3.5 from stock.

    • NeaL Pradeep

      October 25, 2011 at 2:03 pm

      no, it will not root the phone!

        Where was this one released ? I have installed this firmware and it seems it is more of a japanese-chinese version. Is a european, german version available ?

        Are ODIN Updates officially released by Samsung or is this a providers release ? Because some links are installed.

        BTW: Root is now available for Galaxy W.

        • NeaL Pradeep

          October 25, 2011 at 5:57 pm

          we will soon update the rooting article for Galaxy W!
