Samsung Galaxy FIT S5670 – Upgrade to Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich Beta 3

February 13, 2012
0 17 2 70

    Despite its modest hardware, the Samsung Galaxy FIT S5670 has been found fit to run even the most awesome and the latest version of Android–Ice Cream Sandwich.

    Thanks to the efforts of independent developers, owners of the Samsung Galaxy FIT can load up their phones with Ice Cream Sandwich via a CyanogenMod 9 port for the Galaxy FIT.

    The custom ROM is not yet stable enough for daily use, but in time, it will soon reach a stable stage.  Users of the ROM have reported some issues with the keyboard not displaying properly in portrait orientation, though installing the ICS Keyboard app from the Android Market reportedly solves the problem.

    The camera also does not work yet, as do some other apps.  There is also a reported issue regarding changing time zones and a bug with USB debugging.  Screen movement is also observed to be somewhat slow.

    Despite the kinks, if you still want to try Ice Cream Sandwich on your Samsung Galaxy FIT S5670, go ahead and immerse yourself in the instructions.

    Requirements

    • Samsung Galaxy FIT S5670, rooted and with ClockworkMod Recovery installed.  (See our guide for rooting the Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670 and installing ClockworkMod Recovery.)
    • CyanogenMod 9 for the Samsung Galaxy FIT S5670 (beta 4) — get it here (cm_beni-beta4.zip, 127 MB)
    • Perform the upgrade on a full battery charge.
    • Your phone should not be network-locked.
    • Backup your precious phone data.  Just in case.
    • Enable USB Debugging from Settings > Applications > Development.

    Warnings/Caution

    • Use the upgrade instructions at your own risk.  Hold no one liable for any damage arising from your use of these instructions.
    • This ROM is still in beta.  Expect bugs and non-working features.

    Upgrading Instructions

    1. Download the CyanogenMod 9 package for the Galaxy FIT from the link in the requirements section.  Save the ZIP file to your computer.  Do not extract the file.
    2. Connect your phone to your computer via USB cable.
    3. Copy the CyanogenMod 9 ZIP file to the root of your phone’s SD card.
    4. Turn off your phone.
    5. Reboot the phone into recovery mode by pressing and holding down the Volume Up button and Home key (middle key) as you turn on your phone.
    6. From the recovery menu, select “Wipe data/factory reset” and “Wipe cache partition” to make sure your phone is on a clean slate.
    7. Go to Advanced and select “Wipe Dalvik cache”.  Confirm the operation on the next screen.
    8. Install the update package by selecting “Install ZIP from SDcard”, followed by “Choose ZIP from SDcard”.
    9. Locate and choose the CyanogenMod 9 package file.  Confirm that you want it to be flashed onto your phone.
    10. Wait for the installation to complete.  It usually takes about 10 minutes.
    11. Select “Go back” to return to the main recovery menu.
    12. Repeat steps 6 and 7.
    13. Return to main recovery menu.
    14. Select “Reboot system now” to restart your phone.

    Congratulations!  Your Samsung Galaxy FIT S5670 is now running Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich beta 3, courtesy of CyanogenMod 9 for the Galaxy FIT.

      • balbins

        try to go to downloading mode, if u can or succeed going to download mode, try installing a stock firmware… 2.3.4 or 2.3.6 using ODIN and your phone will work again and unrooted….pure stock.

    • gaurav

      tell latest version of galaxy fit

    • Adam

      Please do not try this download, the camera and bluetooth does not work and the recovery mode cannot be accessed. If the recovery mode cannot be accessed, the phone cannot be reset if hanged, so please do not try to update it to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3. After Samsung has officially announced that Ice Cream Sandwich works perfectly on Samsung Glalaxy Fit GT-S5670, then only try to install Ice Cream Sandwich.
