  • Tibor

    Well, yesterday I had a brick, today again a functional phone!!! Thanks a fat bunch Viraj!!! notes: instead of CSC_S5570XWKTN_CL1019135_REV02_user_low_true.tar.md5 I got GT-S5570-MULTI-CSC-OXXKTB_RST.tar.md5 in the package, and no SS_DL.dll. Were these maybe your changes? Then on startup it was in spanish…minor issue. Funny enough the process was only halfway through, on ca. 2:35 it rebooted automatically. However it did not affect the final product. Thanks again, buddy, Hare Krishna!

  • fred

    Thanks for this tutorial, it saved my sgm, I have a question, What is the best custom rom version for sgm gt s5570? because I’ve found out that there are many updates to this phone. I am running 2.3.6 gingerbread official update after I’ve done your tutorial. And I am planning to update it to jellybean, what is the best version to it? thanks, author, and to the developers.

    • Sanket

      Cyanogenmod 10 or 10.1

      • fred

        Have you tried it already? because I’d read some comments, that some bugs are not fixed yet or maybe they were not strictly followed the tutorial carefully.

        I just wanna be sure if it has a good performance in gt s5570, I haven’t tried it yet, that is why I’m asking for the best version, or I’m gonna be with this gingerbread version, thanks for the reply,

        • Sanket

          There are few bugs. But not much serious. Some of them can be overcame. You can try cm10. If you don’t like it you can come back to Gingerbread by following above procedure.

        • fred

          Thanks bro, I’m gonna try it after I finish downloading of CM10 update version.

        • fred

          Now my gt s5570 is running CM10, yeah, like you said, it could fix few bugs. Thanks for the advise. and i think it is easy to go back to the previous version, using CWM or flash. But as of now, I would stay in the performance of CM10, and ejoy more apps. Thanks.

    Can anybody tell me how to reinstall android version 2.3.6 on samsung galaxy y pro duos……. plz…. thnks in advance…………

  • pouadiwe

    2.3.6 is the best gingerbread? what about 2.3.7?

    • Viraj SK

      Samsung hasn’t released Android 2.3.7 update for any of their devices..

  • ckyip

    I upgraded my galaxy mini, but there is not chinese language,
    is that anyway to add chinese language?

    • Viraj SK

      This is not a Chinese firmware and there is no way to add Chinese language in this firmware..

      • ckyip

        I upgraded my galaxy mini as your instruction above and root it, can i flash my phone again ?

        • Viraj SK

          Yes, you can..

        • ckyip

          but i already root my phone,
          still can ?

        • Viraj SK

          Flashing is independent of root…

  • Raja Azim

    my phone was rooted n i using clockworkmod..
    can i still do this or i must unroot it ?

    • Sanket

      Don’t need to unroot.

  • KBK

    It works on ALL Galaxy Mini S5570 regardless region ?

    • KBK

      I extracted the file from S5570XWKTN_S5570OXXKTB_RST,
      I got a file named
      GT-S5570-MULTI-CSC-OXXKTB_RST.tar.md5 instead of CSC_S5570XWKTN_CL1019135_REV02_user_low_true.tar.md5

      • Viraj SK

        Only one file?

        • KBK

          4 files,
          APBOOT_S5570XWKTN_CL1019135_REV02_user_low_true.tar
          CODE_S5570XWKTN_CL1019135_REV02_user_low_true.tar
          MODEM_S5570XWKT6_CL1000416_REV02.tar
          GT-S5570-MULTI-CSC-OXXKTB_RST.tar

          CSC_S5570XWKTN_CL1019135_REV02_user_low_true.tar.md5 was missing.

        • Viraj SK

          No problem put GT-S5570-MULTI-CSC-OXXKTB_RST.tar.md5 in CSC tab. It should work..

        • KBK

          Its work, thank you very much.

        • Viraj SK

          Welcome Bro..

        • Jamal

          Okay, I tried this thing and it crashed my phone. I got the pass message and my phone powered off. I was thinking it was going to reboot but I waited for more than 2 hours and it didn’t. Now I walk around with a dead phone in my pockets. Is there anything I can do to “resurrect” it? Thanks. And by the way, a friend of mine opened the rar. file, and got a pop up asking for a password. Can you help?

  • ranul indula

    How can i change the view of messages after gingerbread is upgraded ?? Plz let me knw !

    • Shreyas

      Basically all android versions have same threaded look in messages.
      If you want to have some different look you can install external softwares like GO SMS etc.

  • http://tanjong_b@yahoo.com matt

    why

  • http://tanjong_b@yahoo.com matt

    why i cannot connect my phone my pc..dont clour yellow

    • Sanket

      Install mobile drivers..

  • N Lavigne

    what if skip the ‘ wipe / reset factory reset ‘ ? I don’t wanna lose my files. Cause there’s so many useful apps there. :)

    • Viraj SK

      It may work for the time being but can cause errors in future..

      • N Lavigne

        but, what’s the different between Android 2.3.4 and Android 2.3.6 ? :S

        • Shreyas

          There are some minor improvements.
          But 2.3.6 is certainly better.

        • N Lavigne

          okay, but will it works? I’m scared to update my phone, this is my first time anyway! :)

        • Viraj SK

          No doubt. It works without any issues but still perform these steps at your own risk..

  • Rex

    that is not explained in this tutorial is that: 1 if connect the phone to the computer then enter the “driver manager” in “control panel” and update your phone properly drive, and then use the command Nooo volume up + home button + lock button use the command … lock button + volume down + home button and enter download mode …………. sorry for my bad english not really know
