Samsung Galaxy Y SS5360 users can now breathe easy as we will now see in the due course of this article on how you can apply the Gingerbread 2.3.6 update in your phone. This all new firmware update is dubbed as the 2.3.6 update and this phone out of the device comes with the Gingerbread 2.3.5 firmware. The best part of this update is that to apply this, you need not root your phone. This update is the Official leaked version released by Samsung Electronics in select countries. This version of update is dubbed as DXKJ3.

This update though doesn’t come with the major changes, but comes with many performance enhancements like faster internet capability as the internet browser has been replenished, Android Market now works effortlessly even at slower internet speeds and also the user interface has tweaked a little to give higher battery life than the stock 2.3.5 Gingerbread update.

Disclaimer: At Android Advices, we have made sure in all respects that all the information regarding the firmware update is mentioned correctly in this article. We hold no responsibility in any manner just in case if any damage happens to your Samsung Galaxy Tab which is a very unlikely event if you follow the instructions carefully.

Note: Please note that you need to apply this update only on the Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 and to not any other device.

In the due course of this article we will see on what are the pre firmware update instructions followed by the instructions to apply this firmware update.

Rooting Information:

  • Applying this firmware update won’t root the phone in any manner, so the warranty stays intact.
  • For updating with this firmware, it’s not a compulsion to root your phone,
  • Just in case if you have already rooted the phone, then the rooting access will be revoked once you follow this process of updating the phone. To root the phone again, you will have to again root the phone.

Pre Firmware Upgrade Instructions:

  • Ensure that the device is charged to a minimum of 70% so as to just make sure that the device doesn’t get turned Off in the process of the firmware update.
  • Now, after this you will have to back up the data which is there in the phone memory. Just in case if the data gets corrupted or lost, the same can be restored easily. We have listed some of the instructions with which you can backup and restore the data.

Notes – Backup in the mail so that you can then restore manually
SMS Messages – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts Stored in Phone Memory – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log - Call Log and Restore
Videos, Images, 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”.

  • Enable the USB debugging from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging”. All tools like the Antivirus, Firewall tools as well as the PC Suite should be completely closed or else there is a high probability that these tools may interrupt the process of the rooting process.

So, now let’s proceed to the next page where we will see on what is the procedure to apply the update of DXKJ3 on your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360.

  1. Hi,
    All the posts for this phone has download links broken..
    Every time i get the below error..
    “This file is either removed due to copyright claim or is deleted by the uploader.”
    Please fix this. my phone is not even starting up.. :( :(

  2. Thanks dude, this update is very easy to install and very useful as well. The internet on my dolphin browser is working faster with this version. Furthermore it helped me to fix a mistake that I did when I was deleting unnecessary apps on my system. It’s turn out that I deleted a important file by mistake, one that command receiving calls. Thanks to this update, all my system was recovered, including the file that I deleted

    The only downsize its the restriction of languages available to active. English and Chinese can’t be a option for everybody, but that is not a problem for me. Posting from Brazil, thanks god I know one or two word in English :)

    Again, THANKS !

  14. Hello!!
    Good Day to everyone. I just want to ask if I should still do the Recovery Mode if I was able to upgrade my Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 with android 2.3.5 to 2.3.6???
    Thank You very much.

  15. Hello, this saves my life.
    I am from India, I have faced a boot loop problem in my galaxy y, so have to flash it and then I came here and do whatever you give in this tutorial. Everything goes fine and finally my phone upgraded.
    But, can you tell me where to find the latest Indian (S5360DD***) version of Galaxy Y S5360!
    Thank you very much.

  16. I used this article earlier to update one another galaxy Y and that worked perfectly without any issue.

    Today Kies worked very well.
    Initially couple of times, firmware update was not completed as when device goes to downloading mode, PC driver use to fail to install device. Fixed PC Driver issues and now this updated worked well on my phone using Kies itself.

    When i checked Samsung Support they are really very hesitant to talk about this update and suggest not to update this using Kies.
    Now I am on 2.3.6..

    Thanks for all your help..

  58. Need to download drivers—
    CDC Abstract Control Model (ACM)
    CDC ACM Data
    CDC OBEX Data
    CDC Object Exchange (OBEX)
    Please Help……..

    • after installing drivers, you need to update with Odin and not from KIES!

      • That’s what i m asking….from where I can get these drivers?
        These drivers are required in order to upgrade the firmware….

    • I had the problem before. Know this drivers are for Bluetooth, just turn on the Bluetooth on your phone, it is already installed! Turning on Bluetooth, removed the error using Kies.

  59. I am trying uupdate android 2.3.6 for samsung galaxy y but it is faild to reboot….what i to do…

  60. had same problem as Prateek above. KJ3 file is corrupt. now I have KJ2 / KJ1 mix on the phone. It’s quite nice. youtube is newer in KJ2 than in KI9 or KI6. still no adobe flash possible. some functions in DDMS DevKit stopped working though in KJ2. watch out for CSC files with branding such as GT-S5360-csc-VDPKJ1.tar . The “VD” means vodafone, starts up in dutch language :-(

  61. hey Neal u say check with the USB ports, could u please tell me wat to do exactly and how u enable full write access

  62. I’ve just updated it to 2.3.6 via Kies and now from time to time, it notifies me about the memory card being unmounted, then after a few seconds it mounts it back on again, then that problem just goes in circles from time to time.
    How can I fix this?
    Is this problem caused by the firmware upgrade?

  63. Works in brazilian version?
    sorry my english is very poor…

  64. HELP:When i update my s5360 Gingerbread to 2.3.5 when i switch on it always upper in Start Up TALK N TEXT (Error:E2)

  65. what do you mean check with the usb ports ?

  66. Renz Alfred Villegas

    hi. i tried to upgrade the firmware via kies since i was prompt to upgrade the firmware. the firmware components were successfully downloaded but it took ages preparing the firmware upgrade components to be installed. What could be the problem? Anyway, i’m using a netbook. Could my PC probably the problem? tnx

  67. already tried kies and it wont work i’m always stuck at preparing firmware upgrade components and when i use odin i get this File analysis

    followed your instructions carefully and tried to change usb ports and i still get that complete write operation failed

  68. I have the last version of Kies and the original firmware of my Galaxy Y (Europe), but it says I already have the last version: 2.3.5.

  69. same problem as sagar is there any way to fix it?

  70. it’s not working even i’ve installed kies . i’ve no problem with flashing other firmware .
    but this firmware is always giving a fail message .

  71. i think there are missing files in the download since i only have 2 files after extraction. no file for pit, csc, and phone

  72. Can you tell me whether you were able to get rid of samsung touch wiz ui after the update and experience the raw form of android ?

    I checked with the USB ports, I’m logged into the computer as admin. Also tried running the application as administrator,
    but nothing worked out. Tried on my laptop and friends Windows XP machine but even that did not work for me.

    Is there a problem with the ODIN software ? Any fix or other way out Neal ?

    P.S- I’m unable to update via Kies, so I need to update with an alternative like this.

  74. I installed a firmware from tsar3000 website with version S5360XXKI9 2.3.5, and after that…whenever i connect my phone to pc through kies, it shows that your phone s/w is not official
    Now i came to know that an official update has been released S5360 DXKJ3 2.3.6 and i downloaded it but it fails every time
    Now since I have installed an unofficial firmware update, does that mean i cannot install this official update
    PS: dont ask me about drivers and all as u may figure out that i have installed an update already through odin, means everything is fine

    • yes, since its a beta firmware it won’t be detected in KIES!
      YOU CAN INSTALL OFFICIAL BUT FOR THAT YOU NEED TO FIRST GET BACK TO YOUR ORIGINAL VERSION AND THEN YOU CAN UPDATE VIA KIES,
      Or else you need to manually apply the update via Odin!

  75. Isn’t that a silly question?
    How can kies connect to my phone if the drivers are incomplete? How can i transfer files between pc and phone both ways if the samsung drivers are not installed and working properly?

  76. Did i not say \Utilized another notebook running windows 7 like in the previous laptop\? And did i not say \The usb ports i use in both notebooks are okay in as much as i am able to connect to phone and able to transfer/copy files from the phone to the computer and vice-versa\?

  77. Sorry, no more need for this download. Just updated my phone to 2.3.6 via kies today. Thanks anyway.

  78. I was about to do the above steps, but when I plugged in my phone to Kies, it prompted me about the update, so I updated using Samsung’s Kies.

  79. it’s not working with me as well, it says FAIL :(

  80. Utilized another notebook running windows 7 like in the previous laptop, and the result is still the same, FAIL. The same messages are displayed except for the COM number which is now COM13. The usb ports i use both notebooks are okay in as much as i am able to connect to phone and able to transfer/copy files from the phone to the computer and vice-versa. Is it possible that i have a bad downloaded firmware file? what are the file hashes of the file?

  81. Complete(Write) operation failed

    this is my problem too .
    i’ve installed first the 2.3.5 Gingerbread update from this website .
