There’s finally new official firmware to report: CELK2 Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. The smartphone to use it on: Samsung
Galaxy Y Pro GT-B5510.
Here are the requirements: turn USB debugging on, make backups, download the official firmware () along with Odin tool, get the (they have to be the ones meant for your phone model) and charge the phone’s battery.
The tutorial on how to install this update on the phone is below.
- Unzip the firmware archive and wait for .tar (among other files) to appear in the list. Then unzip the content of the Odin archive and wait, again, for Odin3 v3.07.exe to be featured on your comp. Now turn the Galaxy Y Pro GT-B5510 off.
- The handset needs to be booted into Download mode; which is done by simultaneously selecting the keys labelled Home, Volume Down and Power, at the same time, for about five seconds. Once that mode is reached, you will have to run Odin3 tool as Administrator and then plug the phone to the laptop. After you see “ADDED” under the file’s message box, you will be requested to opt for some files; they’re the ones in the B5510CELK2 folder:
– tap on PDA and choose .tar (it should feature *code* in the name)
– tap on Phone, then choose the file which contains *modem* in the title
– click on PIT; find .pit and opt for it.
Select the following two boxes: F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot (should you use the .pit file, you need to choose a box called Repartition).
- [sc name=”banner-jos”]The time has come to tap on Start; the flashing of the phone is going to debut and you will be asked to wait for the device to reboot on its own.
- As soon as you notice “PASS” with a green sign behind the Odin tool logo, you will need to unplug the phone from the laptop. That marks the end of our guide. You should next go to the handset’s Settings and choose About phone; this will tell you if the update was successful or if you need to redo our tutorial.
