Upgrade Firmware -Official Version-

1:38 PM Posted by wardah kaddihani , No comments
I have samsung galaxy young. Everyone talk about upgrade their android. How can i do that? Doing something like flashing custom rom to my android makes me worried about the risk. The easiest and savest (i think) is... upgrade the official samsung rom.

Update Steps
1. check your android version
go to settings -> about phone then check your android, baseband version and build number. it's android 2.3.5 for me.

2. prepare samsung account to access software update
you need a samsung account to check for update. if you already have it then log in using your samsung account or make a new one if you don't.

3. check for available update
this will connecting your phone to server so make sure you're ready with internet connection.  better to use a free or prepaid wireless because it'll cost a lot if you use 3g or gprs connection. the upgrade i downloaded so far has max size about 13 MB each package.

4. download available update
make sure that you have the phone storage space needed for download.

5. install update
this will reboot your galaxy and install update. after install and boot process finish you will noticed about the new version installed. congratulations!

6. check again your android, baseband version and build number
after a few download-install-reboot now my galaxy young updated to android 2.3.6, baseband S5360DXLC1, build gingerbread.DXLC1

new lock screen

what's new?
* update for dialer, memo, google search, and lock screen
* new app chat on. similar to kakao talk or whatsapp
* more stability (i hope, because i don't really feel it :P)
