Firmware Update Problems for Galaxy YSupport

    Hi Droids,

    I've been using the Galaxy Y since the last 4 months and i love it :) But im facing problems when i try to update the firmware. I'm still using the firware that i got with my phone. I've never tried to tinker with the phone(root etc.,).

    I've tried to update the firmware in December using Kies but was unsuccessful. And now my phone is giving me problems like repeat messages, switching off in spite of have enough battery charge. I want to update the firmware now but its not getting updated.

    There seems to be some sort of a connection error where once the update starts Kies loses connection with the phone and the update fails. I've heard that other people have also faced similar problems.

    I've read this thread and have tried re-installing kies(installed latest kies software), pulling the cable and connecting it after the update starts but nothing is working.

    Did anyone else face similar problems my pc is running windows7? There are a few screenshots of the process if anyone wants them i'll upload them

    If you did not update it and as it is still 'stock', you can update it directly, by going to settings and clicking on 'upload software'. Make sure you got wifi. Packet internet packs of cellphone companies suck.

    Hi Thanks for the suggestion.. I used GPRS to update the firmware.. There were about 4-5 updates but im still stuck with GINGERBREAD.DDKL2 and BASEBAND S5360DDKL1and there is this 11.52 MB update that is not getting installed. The installation freezes at 0% and the phone reboots normally without installation after the download. And i get a message to use either Kies or to go to a Samsung Service Center.

    Any chances this can be resolved without me having to visit a service center?

    Just use wifi. GPRS is trouble because, the phone switches gprs on and off during certain situations, and gprs is generally very very slow. Wifi will solve the problem.

    Same happened with me.

    ^^ I dont think its a network problem.. Its seems to be a problem with the update.. Cos I've seen the download happening from 0 to 100%. I dont have access to wifi thats the problem.

    But i guess Samsung should have given us proper desktop software instead of the extemely buggy and slow Kies.

    I don't think it's a Kies problem. I have updated my SGY using Kies and there's no problem I encountered. I am agreeing with The Imperial, don't use GPRS, 'coz GPRS is a very slow connectivity. Just use WiFi. Find ways for you to connect using wifi so that you can update your phone successfully. Again, GPRS is a bad connectivity, bad weather may cause GPRS intermittent connection. ;)

    You can download your firmware files and update your phone manually by flashing it using Odin.

    Good day! Is there any possibility to remove my downloaded firmware update from the system. Because the update was unsuccessful and it says try to update using kies Yet neither Kies is not working anymore on my rooted galaxy Y with Custom ROM. My phone is now having low memory issues, and that's why i need to clear some space. :D Thanks!

    I had the same problem and was confused. Then I checked for internal space available. I removed some apps and made space of about 40 MB. Then the firmware upgradation worked.
    The firmware required some space to be expanded and install. There wasn't enough.
    Problem solved. Let me know if it doesn't help.
