Samsung Galaxy Y LogoXXKK6 Gingerbread 2.3.6 firmware is the latest November release for the Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 device.

    INSTALL THE ENHANCED VERSION AS MENTIONED IN THE ARTICLE!

    I could not see any link, are you talking about the \Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 – Steps to Install Enhanced Gingerbread DXKJ3 2.3.6\….if yes, I have already installed and currently running with DXKJ3 2.3.6 but still operation failed installing XXKK6 firmware.

    Please help…..Tnx

  8. does it support arabic please ?

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

    thx

  9. 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.

    • 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

  10. good man!!

  11. 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.

  12. 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….

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  26. 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?

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