Default KD-4 update

People of EU may already have the new KD-4 update .Samsung released a Froyo update for 551 in last week April.
The KD4 firmware is less buggy .It has Froyo 2.2.1 .Touchscreen lag seems to be fixed .Applications are launched a bit quicker.Nothing radical but still an update.Random freezes are fixed and problems with gmail app are supposed to be fixed.

Edit : It is the KD4 update ,sorry for the error

Edit 2 : Odin and flashing firmware is not for the weak.It seriously voids the technical warranty.Your phone can brick .You can become strong though

Edit 3 :It never bricked for me and I hate KIES and jokers known as Samsung support

Edit 4: Once in a while if the CSC doesnt back up ,you will be stuck to free apps only android market.In that case I dont have any Solution as of now except to be a supreme cheapskate.

EDIT 5 : This method may not work for the I5510L ,I5510M,I5510T ,I5510 BR versions.

karandpr, thanks a lot for these informations. You are indeed a valuable member of our 551 users community !

The lags and freezes fixes are *very* good news : if they're really gone, maybe i won't smash my phone on the wall after all.

Now, I'm quite a noob regarding flashing and this kind of things, so here are some questions :

  1. Login - www.SamFirmware.com offers 2 downloads of the I5510XWKD4 : which one should we choose ?
  2. Personnaly, I just discovered that I'm many versions late (I'm on I5510XWJL1) : do you know of any changelog ?
  3. In order to install this update on the phone, is there guide somewhere ?
  4. Will this installation erase my settings ? If so, what kind of backup would be needed ? The titanium Backup kind ?
Thanks a lot for your answers !

Thank you !!

1.)Either one will work but I will go for OXXKD3 one since it has the newer CSC.
CSC are region specific settings .

2.)JK 4/5 was stable Froyo 2.2

KA2 and KA7 were attempts at Froyo 2.2.1 but there were glitched.
Phones would freeze randomly ,the lock screen was not responsive and there was a lag noticed in touch screen.When searching for networks phone would suddenly freeze.

KD4 may seem a minor update but the lock screen and touchwiz is more responsive.Phone doesnt freeze randomly.Smoother UI.The KIES and UMS option which wasn't available if you installed another Launcher now works with ADW,GoLauncherEx .Its 2.2.1 at the very least ,could be 2.2.2.

3.)The Guide is the link in Step 3

4.)It will erase everything .Do a Ti backup of contacts,apps and CSC.

5.)Will update the rooting thread since z4root and UniversalANDroot both dont work .Thats actually sign of 2.2.1

6.)What do you need
OPS file and rar file containing 4 files plus odin 4.34

7.)Password of rar file is samfirmware.com

Advantages of update :Many

Disadvantages : Chances are that KIES wont ever show you any update.but it never does in my country any way

Question CSC question

Hi, nice guide karandpr!! Only one question regarding CSC, to make sure I understand it correctly.

1.- I backup my data with Ti Backup. Although I couldn't find anything that says "CSC" in Ti Backup Is it the "Country, Language, Time" option?
2.- I flash with ODIN following the guide you posted with the 4 files that come in the I5510XWKD4 package (including the CSC file).
3.- I reinstall Ti Backup and restore all my data and... everything should be working?

Sorry to ask but it will be the first time I flash and I don't wanna mess up my phone. I'm mainly confused about the CSC part.

Is the Backup->Restore with Ti Backup enough? Or do I need to generate a CSC file somehow and replace the one in the I5510XWKD4 package with my own when flashing?

Thanks for helping us get the most from our phones!

EDIT: Ok I think I found it, there's something called "CSC 1.0" listed as a system app+data, I guess that's it. This doesn't clear the doubt about generating the CSC file being necessary tho[/B]

CSC is important if you want to access the market of your country or have custom keyboard like AZERTY for france.
To change the country code ,
type *#06# for your IMEI

then type
*#272* IMEI #
you get a list of codes.
Google up and find your country's code
Click forward after typing.
A factory reset will be done and you will be able to access your country's market/settings

Usually your country is listed in the CSC file
But sometimes it is not .
so backup and restore will restore the CSC file.
You will still have to manually change the country code.
The safe way
use *#*#4636#*#*
to check your CSC code .
cross check with samfirmware whether the firmware listed is present or not.
If European then the given CSC is good enuf
If Asia/Arabic then download the corresponding firmware and extract the CSC and use that CSC with the other three files in odin.
If it aint listed
then backup/restore your CSC

Thanks so much, you've been most helpful. I just wanna point out that I had to type *#1234# code (Firmware version) to get CSC code and it said CSC:I5510LCTIJK1 I'm guessing that CTI is my CSC code (since its the name of the service provider). Thanks to you I'm confident enough to flash new firmware!! But not right now because it's late and I better do it well rested. Thanks so much!!

yes, I'd like to find a way to have my AZERTY keyboard in a less hackish version than this page

But basically, the only files that Ti Backup produced that have csc in their names are :
com.samsung.sec.android.application.csc-20110427-191117.properties
com.samsung.sec.android.application.csc-20110427-191117.tar.bz2

and they do not look like a CSC file should look.

So basically, how does one backup and restore a csc file ?

And if I reflashed my phone already, isn't it too late to backup the csc file that will bring my AZERTY keyboard back ?

Alas no. Plenty of codes that relate to Spain, Greece, and lots of central Europe countries according to Samsung Letter Code - www.SamFirmware.com, but none that relates to France such as SFR or XEF.

Very weird. the Firmware with GT-I5510-CSC-MULTI-OXXKD3.tar.md5 offers :
ATO = AUSTRIA
AUT = SWITZERLAND
CYO = GREECE
FOP = SPAIN
IRD = SLOVAKIA
MOT = SLOVENIA
etc... (central europe countries mostly, and 2 unkown codes : NDN and NEE - this list looks pretty much the same as what I remind of what GT-I5510-CSC-BSEJK1.tar.md5 offered).
Anyway, no code related to France.

      NEE
      PMN
      SMO
      TMZ
      TOP

      XEE
      XEH
      XEN

I was able to flash correctly, thanks for your help guys. But I lost 3G and GPS seems to not be working either. My phone model is i5510L which now I think was there for a reason... I was able to restore my CSC by backing up some files + Ti backup. That worked fine so when I get home I'll explain how to do it, it's easy.

My question is, are the firmwares from samfirmware the same as compiling the code from opensource.samsung? Is there a way to compile the kernel from opensource.samsung (they provide some separate files for i5510L which I would have to learn how to use) and mix it with the rom so I can flash a more specific firm?

On the bright side, the phone seems more responsive (specially everything music related), I seem to get better reception and calls sound somewhat clearer (although this last one could be a coincidence)

Ouch !I was reading XDA and saw that

Try this ,worth a shot .

*#*#2263#*#* - Set GSM/UMTS band
For 3G (WCDMA All)
*#*#1575#*#* – GPS test
for GPS

I didnt notice the L .Should have included in the disclaimer .My mistake .

What are the files that are extra.

Don't worry I knew what I was getting into when I flashed. I'm just too curious and like to try things anyway. Worst case scenario I take to service and they reflash their crappy old, filled with bloatware firmware and I get 3G back. Thanks for caring and for your help, I will try those codes. Now I'm at work so later when I get home I'll post howto backup CSC and the "L" files to see if I can figure something out.

Default Restore CSC config

DISCLAIMER: Please bear in mind that my flashing didn't end up perfect and I'm still learning. That said, we're just gonna be copying some files so I think it's kinda harmles to the phone. Also note that I used the OXXKD3 version of KD4 so I can say it applies to this version. It worked for me, but it doesn't mean it will necessarily work for you, I post this because I think it's important that we share our experiences so we can learn from each other. Also I cannot guarantee that it will restore everything. In short what I mean is you do this under your own risk.

1. use the *#272* IMEI # and check your CSC is not listed there
2a. if it is then you're one lucky bastard, select it and click "install". Congrats! You're DONE!

2b. if not (Which is our case), go to /system folder and look for the file CSCFiles.txt

2. to make things easier copy it to your sdcard and then download it to a pc so you can watch it during the procedure.

That file lists all the files that the phone uses to install a new CSC when you enter the code *#272* IMEI # so basically what we have to do is go through the system folders looking for those files and back them up in the sdcard or to a pc (your choice). Also back up with Ti Backup.

3. Flash.

4. After flashing go to the /system/csc folder. Inside this folder we have subfolders named with the codes of all the CSC included in the CSC file. What we need to do is create a folder with our CSC name (my case it was CTI) and then put all the files we backed up earlier in it.

5. Take your backed up CSCFiles.txt and back it up again, we're gonna be modifying it (TIP: if you're using Root Explorer for this process RE makes a backup for you named CSCFiles.txt.bak).

6. Now we are going to tell android where the files are now so it can install them. Open your CSCFiles.txt for editing (note: I edited with Root Explorer, I just opened the file with windows Notepad to copy some sections for this post and it opened all in one long line, so it's probably not a good idea to edit it on windows) mine looked something like this

Code:
/system/media/bootani.qmg
/system/media/video/shutdown/shutdown.qmg
/system/media/audio/notifications/Claro.mp3
/system/CSCFiles.txt
/system/csc/contents.db
/system/csc/customer.xml
/system/csc/isnew_csc.txt
/system/csc/others.xml
/system/csc/sales_code.dat
/system/csc/feature.xml
/system/SW_Configuration.xml
/system/wallpaper/drawable/wallpaper_claro.jpg
/system/wallpaper/drawable/wallpaper_claro_small.jpg
/system/wallpaper/default_wallpaper/default_wallpaper.jpg
/system/app/LauncherMyfiles.apk
/system/app/YahooSearch.apk
/system/app/Plugger.apk
/system/app/MBO2_SMS_I5510L_CSBP_AMX_302.apk
/system/app/LauncherMessage.apk
/system/app/LauncherCamera.apk
/system/app/LauncherStk.apk
/system/app/CTI_Link.apk
/system/app/AMXNotification.apk
/system/app/LauncherCalendar.apk
/system/app/ASCR_SMS_i5510L_ML_AMX_301.apk
/system/app/LauncherContact.apk
/system/app/TopappMessage.apk
/system/app/LauncherMusicplayer.apk
/system/app/LauncherSettings.apk
you can tell there are some customized animations (with the operator logo) and sounds, then some bloatware and apps (which I didn't chose to restore) and then there are these files

Code:
/system/CSCFiles.txt
/system/csc/contents.db
/system/csc/customer.xml
/system/csc/isnew_csc.txt
/system/csc/others.xml
/system/csc/sales_code.dat
/system/csc/feature.xml
/system/SW_Configuration.xml
I only copied these files to the /system/csc/CTI folder we previously created and now comes the "tricky" part. You have to copy the files maintaining the path that the file says. i.e. the CSCFiles.txt goes into /system/csc/CTI/system/CSCFiles.txt then sales_code.dat goes in folder /system/csc/CTI/system/csc/sales_code.dat and so on. Then we have to edit our CSCFiles.txt to reflect these new paths so it will look something like this

Code:
/system/csc/CTI/system/CSCFiles.txt
/system/csc/CTI/system/csc/contents.db
/system/csc/CTI/system/csc/customer.xml
/system/csc/CTI/system/csc/isnew_csc.txt
/system/csc/CTI/system/csc/others.xml
/system/csc/CTI/system/csc/sales_code.dat
/system/csc/CTI/system/csc/feature.xml
/system/csc/CTI/system/SW_Configuration.xml
7. Finally if we've done eveything right when we type *#272* IMEI # our CSC will be listed and we can chose it, select it.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING STEP WILL ERASE ALL YOUR PHONE DATA AND PERFORM A HARD RESET

8. Click "Install". The phone will shutdown.

9. Turn it on, an image of the little green droid with a box appears for a while and then the phone shuts down again.

10. Turn it on again and presto!! You have your phone flashed and with your CSC restored!! (and hopefuly everything works out fine).

for GPS

I didnt notice the L .Should have included in the disclaimer .My mistake .

What are the files that are extra.
These are the files that I downloaded from opensource.samsung.com I looked at them but they seem to be only about Bluetooth, screen but nothing about 3G also I tried selecting the (WCDMA All) but still doesn't work... But what bothers (and troubles) me more is the GPS since it's not country specific at all by definition... It just makes no sense. I think my phone has won a visit to the service
