How To Update Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 with XXKK6 Gingerbread 2.3.6 Firmware

Samsung Galaxy Y LogoXXKK6 Gingerbread 2.3.6 firmware is the latest November release for the Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 device. This update comes at a time when some users have reported issues regarding the Wi Fi bug but this update seems to have worked pretty well for the users on Static IP. Please note that this is not an Official update released by Samsung Electronics and is the beta leaked version. It is very unfortunate that despite Galaxy Y phone being on the latest and official 2.3.6 Gingerbread firmware, there are issues with the firmware.

We hold no responsibility in any manner just in case if any damage happens to your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 which is a very unlikely event if you follow the instructions carefully.

Rooting Information:
Applying this firmware to your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 will not root the device in any manner. Also, just in case if you have rooted the device earlier then the rooting will be revoked and you can claim back the lost warranty. Just in case if you wish to root your phones then we will soon come up with the rooting article.

For all those who doesn’t know What Rooting Is? Then we would like to tell you in a simple one liner that Rooting is basically a technique wherein the third party tools or apps are given the permission to access the system level files for required customizations in the form of Custom ROMs and other tweaks.

    Please help…..Tnx

  • dr_met

    does it support arabic please ?

    and if doesn’t, can u tell me where i can find some firmware supporting it ?

    thx

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      it doesnt support arabic!

  • arondis

    the ENHANCED VERSION you’re speaking in this article contains only
    -S5360XXKK6_S5360XENKI3_S5360XXKK5_HOME.tar.md5
    -Odin3_v1.0.exe
    -SS_DL.dll

    it doesn’t contains the multipackage (PIT,BOOTLOADER,PDA,MODEM,and CSC).
    by the way, this tutorial didn’t work for me.

    • Johnston

      That’s what i said previously . This tutorial doesnt work.

      S5360 at this time only works with full package (PIT,BOOTLOADER,PDA,MODEM AND CSC).

      Ignore other sites telling that you can flash with one package . Odin for s5360 DO NOT SUPPORT IT.

      Until some dev creates a one package flasher for the s5360 we’re fucked

      • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

        we are working on a new article which will help you update with a better firmware! the new article will be up within the next 24 hrs!

  • deawintania

    good man!!

  • rahul gandhi

    hey neal,
    the only way to flash firmware n s5360 is by using all 4 files, i.e. pda, phone, bootloader and csc.. so please provide all these files for the indian version as u did for the asian kj3 version.. there is NO point in providing single files as the WONT work on s5360.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      you need to refer the enhanced version!

  • Ravindra Singh

    initially i update my samsung galaxy y from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6.. but after some time my mobile started giving errors like….SD card removed unexpectely….
    so there is only one soltion 4 this problem …just go samsung service center with ur bill and tell the srvice man for updation… tn the samsung people will frst 4mate ur mobile os and then they will install new software…..and its free of cost if ur mobile is under grrnty….

  • Regin

    I’ve successfully updated the firmware using Kies. Here are the facts that i would like to share.

    1. Kies won’t update your phone if you are connected to the Internet using 3G USB Modem.

    ** I was able to update my phone using a guest OS (windows 7) running inside Vmware workstation.

    2. Using windows 7 the kies driver installed when the phone is running (OS Loaded) is a different driver if your phone is in the Download mode.

    **I have to set my phone in download mode then install driver by allowing the system to download drivers online. (kies driver doesn’t work if the phone is in download mode)

    The baseband version of my phone is now S5360DXKK2.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      use enhanced version of firmware!\

      • Johnston

        What enhanced version??? The only one download in this post is ONE PACKAGE.

        Please,clarify . And post a multi package download if available

        • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

          ENHANCED ONE ITSELF IS THE MULTIPACKAGE ONE!

        • Johnston

          False . The “enhanced version” you’ve posted in this article is one package . Hell ,you say in this article that it contains only 3 files. One md5 , one dll and odin v1.0

          odin in s5360 needs multi package (PIT,BOOTLOADER,PDA,MODEM,and CSC).

          one package is impossible to flash on a s5360 .

          • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

            yes it contains all the files, please download and check with the same!

  • Johnston

    HI.

    My last comment wasnt posted (still under moderation). Afraid of truth?

    Your firmware doesnt work because ,as i said,s5360 at this moment can be updated only with full package (pit , bootloader,pda,modem and csc files).

    Please stop telling people that one package can be flashed to a s5360 because it isnt . Just look at your post regarding 2.3.6 asian firmware . First you told people that one package worked,then you made a new “revised” post bug-free.

    Regards.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM ENHANCED VERSION!

      • Johnston

    Hi Neal.

    S5360 cant be updated with one package md5 files . Odin for s5360 only supports multiple package,mean that you need the bootloader,pda, phone and csc files. The same that you did for DXKJ3 asia S5360 firmware (one file dont work,you provided all the md5s)

    Can you get those files?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Pradeep Neela

      we will come up with the new fw v soon!

  • sambath

    neal is this the latest firmware?can i update to this or stay on dxkj3 which is your advice?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      you can stay back to your firmware as there are not many differences! if you want then you can update the same!
