    ReplyDelete
  3. Sir The game need for speed shift and others are not working can u provide a solution?

    ReplyDelete
  4. yeah i previously said nfs shift is not working on this phone but i found out that other games like pes 2011 ( having game data 100 mb) is running fine.. and also other games previously running on froyo like angry birds, t20 fever cricket are running gr8.

    this version is running perfect and no problems.. This gingerbread version works gr8 for India too so no problem.
    Changes have been made to the user interface like battery icon which looks cool as compared to the pathetic previous one. Music player has also been improved. u will not loose any feature present in the froyo its just added features will be there.

    Overall thumbs up and thnx for this update.. :))
    anybody with a query??

  8. S5570XXKPF 2.3.3 still runs smoothly...
    To those who wanted Downgrade back to froyo and experience functionality issues, the process still the same as of the above method..

    Just remove the battery, put it back, then start the download mode (vol down+home+power).

    flash it with odin, but do not use the "one package", find another firmware with the 4 files. boot+phone+pda+csc+tass
    Do not use one package or you will experience a black screen situation.

  18. I have installed both the 2.3.3 & 2.3.4 versions. In 2.3.4 version I encountered WIFI & internet issues, I cannot connect to the internet so I reverted back to 2.3.3 & the WIFI & Internet problems were resolved. I hope you will find a solution to fix the "bugs" of the 2.3.4 version. Keep up the good work & thanks.

  22. @Tushant Baranwal - Flash player will not work on Galaxy Mini, It is not about firmware its about hardware capability issues.
    This is an older version, the latest official gingerbread is here: http://droidangel.blogspot.com/2011/07/odin-guide-how-to-installupgrade.html

  25. I tried to flash the latest Samsung flash files(S5570XXKPK Android 2.3.4) for the Galaxy mini. So far it works fine & I noticed a substantial increase in browsing speed. My unit does not hang anymore when viewing some webpages unlike when I was still using the Froyo 2.2.1. This one is better.

  39. Wi-fi sometimes doesnt work, dont uprage ur mobile to 2.3.4, better froyo

    ReplyDelete
  40. @Karolis, re-configure your APN settings, it will work again. If you use the stock ROM above outside Russia the you'll getting wifi issues because you are using other MODEM version..
