        • you have to check up you APN parameters : it may be wrong setting : do this =>
          menu->settings->WireLess and Networks->Mobile Networks->Access Point Names
          from this point : contact your service provider request for how to set up the APN parameters according to your signal type

      waaa
      im stock at — cannot open the usb serial port. code: 5

      • It’s the computer hardware problem :
        - windows’ health not good enough : ReNew your windows
        - weak windows driver : update all -> especially chipset driver
        - close Kies
        - try using other USB port : try every port one by one
        - some virus may defect the windows health : check and repair

          ty in andvance

    • I can solve the problem now:

      the compressed download file must be exploded by 7-zip ONLY…!
      formerly, i exploded it by winrar : that’s the main cause : the uncompress file are not 100% usable. it worked well immediately once uncompressed by 7Zip….!!!!

    hey will it work on samsung galaxy pop in india

  89. Hi Kuldeep, nice comments I found about you here :). Is GingerBread 2.3.6 available on Galaxy Pop?
    I am trying to upgrade from Froyo to GB 2.3.6 using ODIN 4.3, TASS_v0.1.ops, package as GT-S5570_FWD_S5570JVKT1_S5570OJVKT1_S5570XWKT2_S5570JVKT1. However, when I start the upgrade, it seems to get stuck at ODIN and for 30 odd minutes nothing is happening. Can I remove my phone now, without the possibility of getting it bricked?

    • Wait some time , if not work , disconnect your phone and try again

      • Hi, I disconnected and tried again. This time it didn’t get stuck at ” odin mode.. check plcatform verification.”, but proceeded to ” amss download.”, where again 20 minutes have elapsed.

        Usually, how much time it takes to complete the procedure? Does it depend on system configuration (mine is i3 processor), or internet connection(mine is 3.1Mbps line)?

        I am asking this so that I do not have to trouble you again n again.

        • Well, I disconnected my phone and tried again… It shows a black screen, and does not start normally or in downloading mode. Is it bricked now?

          What should I do now?

          • May be it is soft brick , but dont worry it is easy to recovery = http://androidflip.com/unbrick-repair-dead-samsung-android-phones/

            It only depends system configuration not internet , your system is super fast for this :)

          • Vaibhav says:

            Tried returning to download mode by key combination at battery reinsert, tried recovery mode, tried (V- + V+ + Home) key combination as well. At most, it comes to a gray screen, does not go any further. Odin can still identify the COM port, however, gets a time-out while trying to setup communication.

            I tried with One-Click too, while unbricking, it is obviuosly not identifying phone.

            Any suggestions?

          • Have you tried all methods to get back your phone working ? see = unbrick samsung galaxy phones

          • Hi Kuldeep, I tried with this method too. However, phone was not getting into the download or recovery mode anymore. After a day with it, I had to submit it to the service center and they had to change the motherboard of the device, as it went dead :-). I am not sure how it might have happened. Any ideas?

            I am soon going to try it again, along with rooting. This time my focus will be on not killing the motherboard, if I know how not to; and trying out Android ICS.

            Thanks Kuldip for your timely help.

          • May be it is soft brick , but dont worry it is easy to recovery = http://androidflip.com/unbrick-repair-dead-samsung-android-phones/

            It only depends system configuration not internet , your system is super fast for this :)
