If you think you’re stuck with Android 2.2 Froyo on your Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670, then you’re in luck–you can actually manually update your mobile phone to Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread.

Here are some of the benefits that you can enjoy by updating your Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670 to Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread:

  • updated ThinkFree Office (version 2.0)
  • Extended battery life
  • Samsung apps updated to the latest version of UNA 2.0.7
  • Fixes for camera and GPS issues
  • Access Google Maps 5.1 in 3D
  • Improved Google Books and enhanced Voice Search 2.1.1
  • Improved User Interface
  • a few other bug fixes

This update is not the official firmware from Samsung.  Rather, it is a leaked firmware which is currently under testing with some bugs in Gingerbread fixed. Also, we cannot guarantee a successful update on your phone. But, if you want to play around with your device and take the plunge, then go ahead and read through the installation process.

Some Precautions

Before we begin, let’s first review some guidelines before installing the firmware:

  • Back up important data to your Google account, PC, or an external SD Card. In the event that your data is erased and corrupted along the update process, you can safely restore them with the backup files.
  • Create a backup of your Internet APN  and MMS settings. These settings are usually erased during the update.
  • Remove your SIM and SD cards during the installation process.
  • Make sure your phone has at least 50% battery power to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted installation process.
  • For rooted devices, the update will unroot your device and revoke rooting access.  You will have to re-root your device after installing the update.
  • If you encounter any problem, you can repeat the procedure until Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread is completely installed.
  • Lastly, make sure your mobile phone is a Samsung Galaxy Fit  5670. If you proceed with another unit, there is a big possibility that you will ruin your phone.

Step-by-step Procedure

If you don’t have any problems concerning the pre-installation guidelines, you can now begin updating your phone to Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread:

  1. Download the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread package to your computer from here.  The file is about 127 MB.  (md5: 666b376b1d92caeda46c722febaac221 / sha1: 723e14029de2af229d0a45b40996fa8ab4937035)
  2. Unzip the file’s contents into a folder.  Use “” as password.
  3. Check the extracted files, such as APBOOT, CODE, Modem, CSC, along with the Odin Multi Uploader version 4.38. Re-download the package if a single file is missing.
  4. Open Odin Multi Uploader from the extracted folder.
  5. Turn off your phone and switch it back on in download mode.  To do that, hold down the Volume Down button and Home button (middle key) simultaneously as you switch on the Power button. The logo shown below will be displayed on your screen when download mode is activated.
  6. While Odin Multi Uploader is running on your desktop, connect your Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670 to your computer via your USB cable.
  7. As soon your phone is connected, the ID:COM box will be highlighted and the message box will display the word “added.”
  8. You will then manually add the additional extracted files into their respective places in Odin Multi Uploader:

OPS – BENI_v1.0.ops
BOOT – APBOOT_S5670XXKPG_CL233102_REV01_user_low_true.tar.md5
Phone – MODEM_S5670XXKPG_CL233102_REV01.tar.md5
PDA – CODE_S5670XXKPG_CL233102_REV01_user_low_true.tar.md5
CSC – CSC_S5670SERKPG_CL233102_REV01_user_low_true.tar.md5

  1. As soon as those are in place, click the Start button to begin the firmware update process.
  2. After the update, the phone will reboot and redirect you to the home screen and require you to fill some necessary options and initiate media scanning.
  3. Afterwards, reboot your phone into recovery mode.  With your phone turned off, press and hold the Home button, then press the Power button.
  4. In recovery mode, delete the cache memory to erase unwanted files.
  5. Reboot your phone normally.  It should now be running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread.

Have you tried the method above to put Gingerbread on your Samsung Galaxy Fit S5670?  How did the process go for you?
