Whenever there is a Gingerbread update received I love to cover it. This time it’s the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos S6102 that gets the update to Gingerbread 2.3.6 DDLD4. The model of DDLD4 is generally for the Indian version of the Samsung Galaxy Y Duos. For people that live in that region this update would have rolled out automatically into the settings of the Galaxy Y Duos. Having said that, it doesn’t mean the rest of the world can’t get their hands on the update with the thanks of this guide I’ll be writing out below. No matter where you are in the world, if you have the device you can update it to the Gingerbread 2.3.6 by following the guide after the jump.
Update Samsung Galaxy Y Duos S6102 With Gingerbread 2.3.6
Before you begin please ensure that your device is already backed up. Do not use this guide without backing up in case something were to go wrong during the procedure. I’ve personally entered in contacts one by one recently and I can tell you it is a real pain in the backside! Secondly, you will need to enable USB debugging mode before you begin. If you don’t know how to do this go to settings>Apps> Development >USB Debugging and check the box. Last but not least, give your device sufficient battery power so it doesn’t run out during the procedure. Done all that? Sweet! Let’s hit up the guide.
Step 1. Go ahead and download the Galaxy Y Duos Gingerbread 2.3.6 DDLD4 Package and the Odin Multi Downloader.
Step 2. Extract the Galaxy Y Duos 2.3.6 package. You should find 2 files inside. One with the .md5 extension and the other with the .dll extension.
Step 3. Power down the Galaxy Y Duos S6102 and boot it back up into download mode.
Step 4. With the USB cable supplied, connect the Galaxy Y Duos to the Windows PC.
Step 5. Open up the ODIN multi downloader we downloaded previously. Inside Odin check for the ID.COM to be in yellow. If you do not see this in yellow it most likely means you don’t have the required drivers. This can be downloaded, so go ahead and do that.
Step 6. Select the PDA tab. Inside PDA grab this S6102DDLD4_S6102ODDLD2_S6102DDLD4_HOME.tar.md5” File.
Step 7. In the middle of the screen is a big start button inside ODIN. Click it now to begin the flashing process. This process can take quite some time. Best to go grab a coffee and biscuits for this one. Be patient and do not touch anything until the process is complete.
Step 8. The process is complete once you get a “pass” message appearing on your screen. Now disconnect your device from the Windows PC properly as you would with any USB.
