How To Update Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 with Gingerbread 2.3.5 Firmware

Pre Requisites:

  • In the process of the firmware update, all the data which is stored in the phone will get erased. So, its recommended to ensure that the data is backed up so that the same can be restored after the firmware update. To keep it simple, we have mentioned some of the tips along with the links which will help you to backup and restore the below mentioned data. The data which needs to be backed up includes text messages, Contacts, Songs, Videos, Files and also not to forget the APN Settings as well as the MMS Settings.

SMS – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,

ContactsSync with the Gmail application,

Call Log - Call Log and Restore

Images, Songs, Videos, Files – Copy to internal / External SD Card,

APN and MMS Settings – Note down from the path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • After backing up the data, you will now have to proceed to charge your phone to the minimum of 90% just to ensure that the phone is not turned Off in the process of firmware update.
  • The computer which you will be using for the update should be minimum having the Windows XP / Vista / 7 Operating system and as of now due to technical limitations the Odin flash tool doesn’t support the Mac / Apple systems. Additionally, ensure that the USB ports are a minimum of USB 2.0 capable or else you will get the USB Port error which can only by overcome either by using different PC with the above capabilities or by upgrading the PC with the minimum of USB 2.0.
  • Don’t proceed to updating the phone before entering into the download mode. If you proceed without entering into the download mode then there is a high probability that you may end up bricking up the phone for which we should not be held responsible for and before proceeding close the softwares like KIES / Antivirus Suites / Firewall tools completely so as to avoid from firmware update failure message. Also, last but not the least you will also require the USB ports with full read / write access so that the firmware update process is not hampered.

So, let’s see in the next page for instructions to update Gingerbread 2.3.5 on your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360.
