    2.) Copy ZIP file to your SD-card

    3.) Turn off your phone

    4.) Switch ON your device in the
    recovery Mode (hold power, volume up, home
    button together).

    5.) Select update from SD Card
    option.

    6.) You will see that the list of files will come from which you will have
    to select the file which is named as
    Update.zip

    7.) Wait a few minutes

    8.) And Your Galaxy Y

    hi wanted to know if rooting the phone void warranty, unrooting before going to service station, shall the warranty restore?

    if no then i think theres no use of unrooting the rooted phone

    - rooted phone void warranty
    - unrooted phone restore warranty (don't forget to "wipe cache patition", "wipe data/factory reset...and select...Yes--delete all user--" in recovery mode. (by doing this your phone will be in primary stage as you bought it from the mobile shop) And format your SD card then you are ready to get it back withouth prove that has been rooted ;)
