    I found the tutorial on xda-developers and i want to share it here.


    You will need:
    -USB CABLE AND THE S5570 ,doh!
    (the device should be recognized by your pc, if it isn't recognized download and install kies HERE)

    1) Download this version of Odin from HERE
    2) Download the firmware from HERE extract it
    3) Download OPS file from HERE
    4) Open ODIN and check these ONE PACKAGE,RESET TIME,AUTO REBOOT,PROTECT OPS. (Image below)
    5) Load the OPS file that you have just downloaded by clicking OPS on Odin and select TASS_v1.0.ops
    6) Click ONE PACKAGE button and load the extracted .tar file (S5570LWMKPJ_S5570LUUBKP8_S5570LWMKPJ_HOME.tar.md5)

    Here's a photo..make sure you get them right...

    7) Make sure that your phone is 70% charged, Turn your phone off
    8) Enter downloading mode by pressing VOL DOWN + OK BUTTON + POWER BUTTON.

    9) Connect the USB cable,now in Odin at COM PORT MAPPING is should appeare the USB cable as connected(COM1,COM2 etc)

    10) Click Start and go grab a cup of coffee and wait till the PASS text appear with blue background. (this is about 5mins or so)
    NOTE: disconnect your phone only, i repeat, ONLY when odin says PASS.

    11) Do a factory reset by turning again the phone off and entering recovery menu by pressing OK BUTTON + POWER BUTTON. (NOTE: touch screen isn't available here, use vol down to move down and ok button to select) Select "wipe data/factory reset", and choose yes when asked.

    WARNING: all data, including text messages and contacts will be deleted so make a backup.

    Sorry, currently I don't have any tutorial to restore EFS file. Also, if you want to restore you need to have your EFS folder (before unlocking) backed up.

    This guide might be able to help you more....

    No, that's not the case. I rarely come to this forum (lack of time) so can't reply instantly. WHy don't you find me at (simply follow the link on my signature)? I can reply there quite faster than here. So, on to your problem for your problem please find the deatailed instruction at the site mentioned by me.

    And, yes you can upgrade from 2.2.1 to 2.3.6 directly.

    To change the language go to locale and text in the settings and choose a new language.

    I guess the problem is that you are using wrong version of Odin or Tass file. Make sure you are using Odin Multidownloader v4.38 . For more detailed info on upgrading visit Handy Informations

    I'm here - 6) Click ONE PACKAGE button and load the extracted .tar file (S5570LWMKPJ_S5570LUUBKP8_S5570LWMKPJ_HOME.tar.md5)

    However I extracted the zip and there are 4 tar files to chose from, which do I use?

    can I do this with my sg mini version2.3.3? TIA
  23. yagya

    yagya Well-Known Member

    You then have to choose all four files :
    Make sure you don't select One Package option ... Leave everything as it is. Then,
    1. Select OPS file first
    2. Choose APBOOT_*.tar in BOOT field.
    3. Chose MODEM_*.tar in PHONE field
    4. Choose CODE_*.tar in PDA field.
    5. Choose CSC_*.tar in CSC field.
    No need to chose anything for one package. Once everything is loaded, connect your phone and press start. :)
    Happy Flashing. :)
