Latest Gingerbread 2.3.6 DDKT3 (indian version) launched for Galaxy Fit

Here, in this post I will describe the complete procedure about updating your phone to latest Gingerbread 2.3.6 DDKT3. For the reader's convenience I have written every step in a clear and simple way.

Please note that the update mentioned here is official update only for India. Remember, updating will not void your warranty. But doing it in a wrong way may brick your phone. So, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.

The below mentioned method has been tested and worked 100% on my Galaxy Fit.

Fully Charge your battery and Backup your data. Remove sd card from phone.

Step 1. Dial*#1234# to check your firmware version.
Step 2. Download the firmware files for Galaxy fit.
Step 3. Download Galaxy Fit Flash program.
Step 4. Update your phone.

1. Windows PC, Galaxy Fit Drivers, Firmware files, Flash programs. 

2. Download Drivers here
Samsung USB drivers

3. Download Flash programs here
Galaxy Fit Flash Programs

4. Download Firmware files here
Galaxy Fit Firmware

1. Extract the drivers file and install Samsung USB drivers on your PC. Also, extract the firmware files to obtain two files:- SS_DL.dll and S5670DDKT3_S5670ODDKT2_S5670DDKT2_HOME.tar.md5

2. Extract the flash program file to obtain two files:- BENI v1.0.ops and Odin.

3. Open Odin executable file.

4. Click OPS and select BENI_v1.0.ops from the files you have downloaded. Now tick "One Package" to enable One Package field. Now click One Package and select the file S5670DDKT3_S5670ODDKT2_S5670DDKT2_HOME.tar.md5

Leave all other fields.

It should appear like this:-

OPS - BENI_v1.0.ops

One Package - S5670DDKT3_S5670ODDKT2_S5670DDKT2_HOME.tar.md5

5. Now wait for about one minute.Meanwhile switch off your phone.

6. Now open your phone in download mode by pressing volume down and home button and while pressing these two buttons press the power button until your phone switches on. Now your phone will turn on with a yellow coloured triangle displayed on screen.Below the triangle "Downloading" will be written. Now connect your Samsung Galaxy Fit GT S5670 to PC and wait till the device is ready to use.

7. The "Com Port Mapping" box in Odin will turn yellow as soon as odin detects your phone. Now, once again make sure you have followed the steps correctly. Press "Start" button. The odin timer will get started.

8. Do not disturb the phone and PC during the updating process. When updating is successful, you will see the message "PASS" in the top left box. In my case, it took nearly ten minutes to complete.

Congrats!!! You have updated your Samsung Galaxy Fit GT S5670 to latest gingerbread 2.3.6. Some changes are:-
1) Quick response
2) Memo icon change
3) Lock screen change
4) Updated Quickoffice, SamsungApps, Market
5) Downloads App added.
6) Notification, Status bar icons...etc

AFTER UPDATING:- Factory reset your phone to remove unwanted cache files. Go to Settings->Privacy->Factory Reset. To check your firmware version, go to Settings->About phone.

    7 able to charge and showing battery charging
    8 tried odin… but unable to connect…
    9 tried kies…. Lots of Samsung driver too but still unable to connect to odin
    10 went to customer care… they told me that phone got drenched and need to replace motherboard costing 4000…. But I know what I did with my phone.. its because I uninstall system app…
    So please help me in this
    Waiting for ur help

    1. lol go to xda forum or put phone.apk msg.apk to system/app via root explorer & permission rw-r-r & reboot phone

  2. hey...pls give the password for extracting flash program files...

  3. THANK YOU .................

  4. I rooted my phone and and not fully knowing what it would do, converted the play store app into a system app. Now it force closes whenever I open it. I tried reinstalling but that gave the same result. I can't even retrieve it from system apps as it doesn't show there. How do I get it back?

  5. Hi, I have a device Galaxy FIT, but cannot update it neither by keis, though it says update available always after sometime say emergency recovery nor through odin as mentioned above. Could you please guide me how can I get GB 2.3.6 on my device.

    with advance thanks,

    1. What is ur build number? If its Froyo, build number should be either DDKA7 or DDKB1 coz these are Indian firmwares. If you have previously updated ur phone with another country's firmware, then ur phone will work fine but it will not get updated through kies. So, use odin in that case & follow exactly whats written above. No recovery method is used here. You have to use computer only. So, follow as above & you will get ur new GINGERBREAD.DDKT3 android version.
      Good Luck!!

  6. Hi, I had rooted S5670 with JB 4.2.1 but now i want to go back to GINGERBREAD.DDKT3. Earlier it was DDKT3. When i tried above solution, it was completed in 5 min but then the phone is continuously restarting.. what could be the problem. I tried above steps 3 times already.. Here is the snapshot of ODIN Msg. It took 6:41 minutes

  9. I bought s5670 and version 2.3.6 was already installed in my phone. but it does not have efs folder. My IMEI number and everything else is working properly. I want to install custom ROM so I want to backup my efs folder. do you know how to backup this folder when this folder is missing from phone's root directory?
