New Firmware Update for Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 (May, 2012)

Recently, Samsung released updates for both Kies and Samsung Galaxy Y firmware. You’ll get the firmware update unless you update the version of Kies also. I believe Samsung is really pushing users to always update it. Now, let’s see what does the new firmware (PDA:LE1 / PHONE:LE1 / CSC:LD2 (SMA) include:

What are the changes?

1. New widgets and icons (Samsung Update and Google Play Store)

2. New options for Firmware Update (Menu – Settings – About Phone – Software Update)

Clear Guide to Update Samsung S5360 Galaxy Y Firmware Check out the latest firmware update in The Philippines

Here’s a guide on how to upgrade the firmware of your Samsung Galaxy Young to the latest version via Samsung Kies:

1. Connect your device using the USB Cable to your PC and then open Samsung Kies.

2. After Kies identified your device, Click Firmware Upgrade button. It is normal if you see connection to the device lost error message in the lower right hand corner of Kies after clicking the Firmware Upgrade button.

3. In Firmware Upgrade pop-up window, read thoroughly the things that you need to do before you proceed with the upgrade. Select whether you allow Kies to save your Phone number, PC hardware specifications and IP Information on their server for any upgrade issues analysis.

4. Click Start Upgrade button.

5. Let Kies download the upgrade components. Don’t attempt to disconnect your phone during this process. This will take time depending in your internet download speed.

6. After it downloads, it will automatically run the upgrade on your Samsung Galaxy Y.

Tip: If the installation didn’t go through after Kies downloaded the update file, try to plugin the USB cable to the other USB hub in your pc or laptop.

7. After the upgrade process, there should be a prompt in Kies that the upgrade was successfully completed. It is now safe to disconnect the device from the USB cable.

    Galaxy Y Never ever get 4.04 ICS… Because Galaxy Y dn’t hav much memory storage…. The change when you get update via OTA is =
    1. Unlock mode change….
    2. (Maybe) decrease the lag… :D
    3. Don’t know..:D
    But the update is much….. :’(
    Maybe five to seven…
    Good bless all…

  • http://myguidemaster.blogspot.com/ Lee Jae Hyuk (이재혁)

    I never tried to do that. My Samsung Galaxy Y is network locked that’s why I’m afraid to root it. Maybe someone can answer that question for yah.

  • VIV

    DURING UPGRADE MESSAGE APPEARS ‘NOT ENOUGH MEMORY’ WHAT DO I DO

  • http://myguidemaster.blogspot.com/ Lee Jae Hyuk (이재혁)

    You should try deleting some unnecessary files on the SD card.

    what data should i back up before doing so? will it delete some apps or maybe touch the sd card memory? what data can i possibly lose if i update without backing up?

  • xed

    I just updated my galaxy y… it turned out pretty fine with the new software and the widgets. the reason i updated my phone is i am getting an error says, ” sd card accidentally removed” … i wish this update would help me fix the issue. im glad samsung come up with this new update.

  • xed

    Nothing will be deleted upon doing the update on your phone. you will be advice not to remove the sd card during the update and installation. I did it using wifi connection. just follow the instruction and your phone will be fine.

    it keeps on flashing the startup screen ..????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://myguidemaster.blogspot.com/ Lee Jae Hyuk (이재혁)

    As far as I know it will take a while before it loads the home screen after doing a firmware update. However, if it’s taking so long let’s say 7 minutes or more, remove the battery then restart it.

    i tried to upGrade my firmware through kies but after d download there’s no changes on my phone..why is it?please help me.. :(

  • http://myguidemaster.blogspot.com/ Lee Jae Hyuk (이재혁)

    If the upgrade was done successfully then the updates should reflect on your phone. Try to run Kies and make sure that the latest firmware was installed.

  • sier

  • http://myguidemaster.blogspot.com/ Lee Jae Hyuk (이재혁)

    The most current update after this doesn’t include major changes aside from performance improvement.

  • maximus

    what are this performance improvements?

  • ridata

    Its my device cannot be update

  • Kenneth Bernales

    the firmware doesn’t update the kies.. it updates your smartphone. kies is only the one who finds updates and sync everything from your smartphone to your pc.

  • Kenneth Bernales

    the firmware update includes bug fixes, some kind of new GUI or graphical user interface, new widgets, and just a bit of performance.

  • Kenneth Bernales

    it is because you are using a low type of smartphone. but you can root your phone for better use.

  • Kenneth Bernales

    maybe the update only fix the bugs on your phone.. because that is the real purpose of updates

  • Kenneth Bernales

    of course you need to update your phone.

  • aya623

  • Pepz

    Just want to ask what shall i do coz every time that i download the update the usb connection is lost!

  • http://myguidemaster.blogspot.com/ Lee Jae Hyuk (이재혁)

    It’s normal until Kies finishes downloading the necessary update files and then the device USB driver will be re-installed prior to installation.
