    • Shreyas

      I am not getting what you want to stay. If you are stuck at boot animation i.e. boot loop then wipe data and cache from recovery.

      if doesn’t work then how to get recovered

      • Shreyas

        It is official firmware and not a ROM so it should work if you follow the procedure as it is.
        Still if you wanna backup your current OS install Clockworkmod Recovery and take a nanroid backup

  • Nitin

    Hi Viraj,
    Buddy, I liked your page very informative as an layman android person. By the way I also have pretty old Cruz Reader Tab from Velocity, which is having very old Android version. I guess some 2.X.X . Do you have any URL from where I can get a crack for updating this. As it’s almost dead for me so won’t mind to try unofficial risky thing also. ;-)


  • Nitin S

    well. I upgraded s5660 with ICS unofficial build now and it created lot of issues so decided to rollback on Ginger Bread with the help of this page. But unfortunately got struck on Odin exe thing. I can’t see the Yellow colored Com port mapping blocks even I installed the given Samsung driver several time. Every time when press start it gives alert “Connect your Phone” and also few time got MD5 checksum fail error. Any idea what could be the issue? I tried in both the Windows7 32 bit and XP.

    P.S. Phone is making proper connection in other way if try without downloding mode.


    • Nitin S

      Sorry.. My mistake.. Was doing in Recovery Mode instead of Downloading mode.. Actually not an Androi geek so made this heck. Anyway now it’s fine I rolled back with Official release safely.. :)

    • help

      the same thing happened to me
      you must just put the phone on download mode nothing else

  • http://profiles.google.com/cefirod Carlos Figueroa

    Thanks a lot!!! It work all perfect and solved some issues what i used to have with the wifi(on/off) and the screen(tuning off suddenly).

  • Shuckaz

    Hi Viraj!

    I’ve followed the instructions but I’m stuck at “Simply Press Start Button To Initiate The Process.You Will See The Things Like mibib,qcsbl,oemsbl… Coming While Process is Going On.”
    The process seems to be stuck, no  mibib,qcsbl,oemsbl is shown in the Odin Multi Downloader and the timer has reached 30 min by now. Any ideas how to troubleshoot this and do you know what to do to continue the process?Thanks for your help/Dagoth Ur

    • Viraj SK

      Disconnect the phone. Remove battery, re-insert it & do the same procedure again. If it doesn’t work then download another firmware with different baseband..

  • Rooting help seeker XD

    I installed everything and all worked all right for me so thanx .   But later on i discovered that my phone isn’t rooted anymore so tried to root it back but it didn’t work( instalation of update from sd card was aborted ) .  So i was hoping u could help me rooting my phone

  • Thiha

    my baseband is C5660DXkc3. so can I use this version?

    • Viraj SK

      Yes you can..

  • Kas315

    Dude, my baseband and imei is gone on s5660. what should i do>????

    • Viraj SK

      Your IMEI won’t change. You can check it by dialing *06#. And your baseband will change to XXKTL..

  • Jorelledelesmo

  • http://gravatar.com/philemon117 Dave

    Install was successful for me! Did not need to restore factory settings after reboot. Thanks!

  • Marnix van der Erve

    I flashed the Gio 5660 with stock rom (from cm9 because of some essential bugs.) After that I needed EXT4 and flashed the Gio EXT4+RFS Recovery (or should I Use PX revovery(??) cause of using stock rom. Why? See below:
    So I wipedd data, cache. I couldn’t wipe Dalvik-cache. it just jumped back in the menu without executing the wipe.

    The update itself went smooth until reboot. reboot takes place before pass message(???). So i swicthed off the phone, started in recovery, wiped al data and restarted the phone. it worked. I installed the CWM EXT4+RFS reboot the phone and: Nada? No startupscreen, only the reboot screen time after time…

    Any Ideas.

    • Viraj

      As CWM is RFS + EXT4 Recovery, Some Gingerbread Stock ROMs Doesn’t Support It (Supports Only RFS File System).Flash CWM Only If You Want To Flash Custom ROMs Otherwise Flash Stock Recovery (if Available) Or Stock ROM Again if You Want To Stay On Stock Gingerbread. Problem Will Be Solved..
