How to Update Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 with Official DDLA1 Gingerbread 2.3.6 Firmware

Samsung Galaxy Y LogoSamsung Galaxy Y S5360 users can now breathe easy as an Official update for Indian users has just pushed via KIES tool which is Samsung’s very own tool for managing your phone. Since many of the users are on the beta versions of the firmware, KIES won’t be recognizing the firmware. So the only way you can apply the firmware is by either reverting back to the original stock firmware or you can apply this update manually which we will be checking out in the due course of the article. This all new update is dubbed as Gingerbread 2.3.6 DDLA1 and is the official KIES release for all the users of INDIA but all the users from rest of the countries too can apply this update.

Disclaimer: Please note that this process of firmware update is not recommended for the basic users and is only recommended for the advanced users. Also, we should not be held responsible for any damage happened to your device in any manner after applying this update.

Rooting Information:

  • Please note that if you apply this firmware then it doesn’t mean that the phone is rooted.
  • If you have rooted your device then after applying this firmware, the rooting access will be revoked.

Note: For all the users who are asking for all the files including the files like Boot loader, Phone and CSC, these files aren’t available with this current firmware version as it’s a leaked version of the official update. As in when we get all the files, we will surely update the same. We are aware of issues faced by some users in the recent updates and we really apologize the same.

Essential Pre Requisites:

  • Caution (Not for INDIA users): Don’t backup the data using the KIES as after the update KIES won’t be detecting your phone as its not Official firmware for your region.

Text messages – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Phone Contacts – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log - Call Log and Restore
Pictures, Music, 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

Notes – Manually you need to note down or need to transfer to Evernote.

  • Ensure that the battery level left in your device is minimum of 60% so as to ensure that the phone doesn’t get turned off in the middle of firmware update. Also, you need to disable all the Antivirus / firewall suites in your computer as these tools tend to interrupt the process of firmware update. Also, close the KIES completely in your computer.

So, assuming that you are aware of Essential pre Requisites which you need to follow then you can proceed to the next page where we have summed up the procedure to apply this update. It’s very important to follow all the instructions mentioned so as to make sure that the update is applied safely and securely. Let’s head to the next page where we have summed up the instructions to apply this update in your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360.

  13. Hi,

    I recently upgraded my Samsung Galaxy Y to Android 2.3.6, GINGERBREAD.DDLA3. After upgrade I am having the following problems:

    1. Android market does not work. Gives connection time out error.

    2. When I power on my phone I get an SMS from LM-ALERTS: ‘Dear GT-S5360 user, Thank you for your inerest in being a part of the Samsung Family.’ The funny thing about this is that I also get charged for this SMS!!

    I will be grateful if you could kindly give a solution for this problem.


  14. Hi,

    I recently updated the firmware of my Galaxy Y using Kies and now the firmware version is Android 2.3.6, Build GINGERBREAD.DDLA3, after the update I am facing two problems:

    1. Android market does not work. I keep getting ‘connection timed out’ even though there is nothing wrong with my WiFi connection. Internet use through all other apps like browsers, YouTube, etc is perfect.

    2. If I power off and on my phone, I get an SMS from somewhere which says, ‘Dear GT-S5360 user. Thank you for your interest in being part of the Samsung Family’. When I get this SMS I am charged and my talk time balance goes down :D

    Please, can you give me a solution for this problem?
