    Hi, I have downloaded two files to upgrade my S Advance to JellyBean
    1. HOME_I9070XXLPY_I9070SERLPY_660490_REV00_user_low_ship.tar.md5
    2. I9070DDULP8_I9070ODDULP8_HOME.tar.md5

    Which one should I prefer?

    • Shreyas

      XXLPY is Russian firmware and DDULP8 is Indian firmware. You should go for one which suits you.

      • Viraj SK

        DDULP8 is the latest firmware…

        • Dev

          It worked. Thanks Viraj & Shreyas..

  • Udborah

    Do I havo to remove the md5 extension???

    • Viraj SK

      What’s the issue?

      • Udborah

        I haven’t upgraded yet. Just asking by reading a reply to felix by Sanket. Just for sure, I wanna ask you……..I have kies and odin 3.07 installed o my pc. Can I carry on??? My downloaded fole is named HOME_I9070XXLPY_I9070SERLPY_660490_REV00_user_low_ship.tar
        A DLL file named SS_DL was also with the Downloaded file. What should I do now????

        • Viraj SK

          Yes, you can carry on (ignore SS_DL.dll file, it’s not needed)…

        • Udborah

          What about the .md5 extension?

        • Viraj SK

          It’s not necessary to remove .md5 extension (always).
          If you get ‘parameter incorrect’ error then only you will need to remove it..

        • Udborah

    • Viraj SK

      Is it showing Samsung or something? Because if it’s not then there is a high probability that his / her phone is dead (bricked).

      And if it is dead then only option left is Samsung Service Center. They will replace the motherboard. I hope his/her is still in warranty…

  • wei

    will it be laggy??

  • Rashad

    it shows pass message but whenever i reboot it only shows the
    the new samsung logo and then restarts again what i can do?

    • Sanket

      Remove and re-inset battery..press volume up +home + power button simultaneously. You will boot into recovery mode. Now wipe data and wipe cache partitions. Reboot now.
