How to Flash/Install Samsung Galaxy Player/S Wifi 5.0 YP-G70CW Stock ROM Android 2.3.5 G70XXKPF

This the step by step procedure on how to manually flash the Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread firmware on Samsung Galaxy S Wifi 5.0 YP-G70CW or called as Galaxy Player. We are using Odin downloader and the default original stock ROM G70XXKPF. This procedure will only work on a specific variant of Galaxy Player released in Europe with product code YP-G70CW.

The Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread has been officially rolled out on some countries over Europe started from the month October last year. I just created this guide for such certain reports of users on some forums  that already bricked their Galaxy Players for flashing a wrong ROMs because they can't wait for the official firmware releases on their regions via Samsung Kies. This WILL NOT WORK on other multimedia player like the Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.0 YP-G1CW, Galaxy Player 50 YP-G50CW and the US versions Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 YP-G1CWY and Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 YP-G70C/NAW. So, just check out your device product information before applying this guide, for it will bricked your device in no time if you use the ROMs as stated here.

Disclaimer: We shall not held responsible if anything happens to your device by applying this tutorial. Proceed at your own risk.
Prerequisite: 
- Back up all important files stored on the player, contacts, messages, videos, music etc.
- make sure your device battery is charge at its peak or at least 50 to 70% remaining power.This will avoid risk of power failure that result on bricking the device.
- You need to have Kies installed on your PC or laptop, to have the driver of your player also installed on your computer.
- Use a good and working USB cable for your Galaxy S Wifi 5.0

  1. Does anyone see a difference between froyo's Soundalive where there are the 7 band equalizer control in User 1 and 2 and you can select "3D&Bass, Concert Hall, Clarity & Upscaler" ? the Gingerbread one seems inferior .. also, you can't select "Big Bass" without inserting a headphone .. any other version could resume the former ?
