How To Update Samsung Galaxy mini S5570 with Gingerbread 2.3.5 Firmware

Galaxy mini LogoSamsung Galaxy mini S5570 users now have a reason to smile as in this article we will see on how you can apply the latest Gingerbread 2.3.5 firmware update. We really apologize for such a long delay in the coverage for you guys but from now we will try our level best to come out with frequent articles for your phone. So, coming back to this firmware, we will see on how to how to install the Gingerbread 2.3.5 version of firmware which is dubbed as the version XWKS7.

This update comes at a time when most number of users are still on the Gingerbread 2.3.3 or 2.3.4 version of firmware and Samsung has still not pushed the release of 2.3.5. The best part of this update is anyone with their Samsung Galaxy mini S5570 phones can proceed and apply this firmware update. The only condition being is that you should not apply this update on the contract phones or the network locked phones.

Note: This update of XWKS7 is not an official release which is launched by Samsung and is the beta release which is almost near to the stable version which will be pushed very soon. We don’t have the exact time frame on by when this update will be launched officially, but we hope that Samsung will surely haste the pushing of this release.

Disclaimer: Please note that we should not be held responsible in any manner in whole or in parts if any damage is done to your device caused by updating the firmware which is a very unlikely event if you follow the instructions as mentioned in the article including the pre requisites and the procedure to update the phone.

Rooting Information:
Following this procedure to update the phone will in no manner will root he phone, so the warranty will not get void and will stay intact.

Just in case if you were on the custom ROM and you have already rooted the phone, then the rooting access will be revoked after applying this update and the warranty can be reclaimed. To root the phone, you need to again follow the separate procedure to root which we will come in some days from now on androidadvices.com.

In the due course of this process, we will see on what are the steps you need to follow before updating in the Pre Requisites section followed by the procedure to apply this update of Gingerbread 2.3.5. So, lets get to the next page for quick pre firmware update instructions.

  64. Android 2.3.6 GIngerbread working for Samsung Galaxy Mini s5570. If possible i want download this version and install for my mobile. Pls information me.

  65. does it work in 3 network locked contract phones

  66. I installed the 2.3.6 update OTA (from 2.3.4 -> 2.3.5 -> 2.3.6) but the WiFi kept shuttiing down I tried many workarounds but not a single one worked.
    The only 2 things I didn’t tried were: 1. Flushing the cache (before) (after) the update. 2. Trying another router (since same problem is reported with the router I use, Belkin)
    I don’t regret going back to 2.3.4 since the battery ran out a lot faster on 2.3.6 because of somewhat faster processing.
    BTW, the update I did OTA was also available trough Kies. Mine is a Galaxy Mini S5570L (Movistar Panama)

    • it has some issues in dynamic ip!

      • Maybe I’ll try that but I’m not that eager into it because I usually connect to different routers in different places and that will keep me switching the settings a lot. Besides the only two things I enjoy in this new version are the increased speed (just a bit but it drains the battery faster) and the ability to switch the home page in both directions, ie. 1->3 without needing to go through 2 b swiping left, I guess it’s useful if you have several screens and want to move to the last one quickly.

  67. Does the 3G work?
    because i have the 2.3.4 and it doesent

  68. gingerbread 2.3.4 XWKQ2

    I have a Samsung Pop GSM phone and it still has Froyo version. Yesterday I tried to check for new version but Samsung Kies showing there is no update available.
    Which version is officially available through Samsung Kies?
    Can I follow above article and update my phone through Odin?
    Is it safe and there will not be any issue in terms of Warranty?
    Will I be able to update my phone through Samsung Kies in future?

    Requests all to help. I am new to Android OS.
    Thanks in advance.
