If you’re up for an update, get your Galaxy Ace 3 LTE GT-S7275B ready for this guide!
The Samsung S7275B is going to end up with as many novelties as possible when you’re done with our guide. Making this possible is the latest official firmware to come out for your device: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean UBUANE2. If you want to update another model with it, we recommend using a different tutorial. The new tool only works for the model we’ve included in this post.
After you know what device to use and what firmware the latter will contain, let’s find some more info on the new tool. It was launched this month for Argentina. Its KIES logo is turned on. What does that have to do with anything? Well, this gives you the chance to upgrade your handset with the KIES software. Use this only if stock ROM is already part of your device. If it’s not, this guide doesn’t need a stock ROM to be performed.
The benefits of this official firmware
Once you have root access on your phone and you want to upgrade it, you’ll experience certain damage. The procedure will quickly affect the smartphone’s system partition. After the latter’s been erased, root access will end up being revoked. The update doesn’t delete important data; internal and external SD cards are also safe from damage.
An update delivers really great assets for your Galaxy Ace 3 GT-S7275B. Special mention is given to the following goodies: low battery bug fixes and new features. Your phone gets to use these, too: a USB debug white-list and a new set of download notifications. There’s also this: the option to long-press the WiFi Bluetooth icons in Quick Settings to be able to toggle the on/off state while using the device. Other novelties: better Bluetooth audio streaming and a new set of sounds for wireless charging. A new Gallery app concludes this list of goodies.
Ready to perform the update? There’s one more thing to do: requirements. Without further ado:
- enable USB Debugging on your smartphone;
- don’t forget to turn off the phone’s security programs;
- the security software used by the laptop needs to be deactivated;
- charge the battery of your Galaxy Ace 3 LTE GT-S7275B;
- download USB drivers from this page on your laptop (they should be the ones which are compatible with your handset);
- Windows has to be the only OS running on the notebook;
- generate one or two backups to preserve the data inside your handset;
- a full NANDroid backup should be created now.
Step by step instructions
You’re to start the guide by downloading several packages on your laptop.
- The for Argentina (file name: S7275BUBUANE2_S7275BANCANE2_ANC.zip) should be downloaded from its official location. Then there’s also Odin v3.09 which you’ll find on this page.
- The packages must then go through an unzipping phase. Extracting the Odin v3.09 will offer several files. Among them is this one: Odin v3.09.exe.
- Open the latter on your laptop. Your smartphone needs to end up in Download Mode. Perform this by pressing and holding Home, Power and Volume Down together, doing that until a boot message gets displayed, then pressing Volume Up when that message shows up.
- You can afterwards continue by plugging the phone to the laptop. Create this connection via the handset’s USB cable.
- Odin will, after a couple of minutes, signal the success of the plugging via a blue sign. So do this next: add the firmware file to AP / PDA. Move on by performing the following step: wait for some boxes to appear, then turn on two of them.
- These two have the following names: Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time. A third box whose name is Re-partition should be unchecked.
- Start the installation of the new firmware by clicking on this: “Start“. Wait a bit so that the flashing of the new UBUANE2 official firmware is done. This installation will take around 10-15 minutes to end.
- [sc name=”banner-jos”]Repeat the previous steps if things go wrong. If things go according to plan, a message in a green background should come up. Its name should be this: “Pass”. The handset is going to reboot very soon after the message pops up.
- It’s now safe to remove the USB cord. After the plugging is no longer active, you can tap, on your handset, the following: Settings. About Phone is the next option to activate. When done, allow yourself some time with your updated GT-S7275B.
The NANDroid backup file you had to create can be used to get the old ROM back. Unfortunately, the upgrade’s going to be revoked if you want that ROM restored.
