Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 never got the official Android 4.0 ICS software update, but look what do we have here, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean (CM10) is already being ported for this Android phone with almost all the features working fine on the small screen.

As you read further, we will guide you through the entire process of how to update Galaxy Mini S5570 to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean (CM10) custom firmware using CWM recovery. Make sure you backup all your data from the tips and tools given below as you will have to wipe everything in order to install this firmware.

Disclaimer: All the tools, mods or ROMs mentioned below belong to their respective owners/developers. We (TeamAndroid.com) or the developers are not to be held responsible if you damage or brick your device. We don’t have you on gun point to try out this tutorial 😉

What doesn’t work:

  • Proximity, magnetic, orientation sensors
  • HQ video playback
  • Camera
  • Voice search

Make sure you have installed all your USB drivers for the Samsung Galaxy Mini to connect it with the computer. Download Samsung Galaxy Mini USB drivers! Apart from just the USB drivers, there are a few more things that you need to take care of.

1. You need to enable USB debugging mode. This helps to connect your Android phone with the PC. See here: How to Enable USB Debugging.

2. Your phone battery should be 80-85% charged. If your phone goes off suddenly because of battery, during flashing ROMs or installing mods and updates — your phone might go dead permanently. See here: How to Check Battery Percentage.

3. Backup all your important data that you might need as soon as your flash a new ROM, or make a backup for just in case, you never know when anything might go wrong. See below on how to backup data:

4. Your phone should be factory unlocked. Additional instructions for locked Android devices will be added in the tutorial for unlocking devices.

Now, let’s proceed with the tutorial on the next page and install Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean on Galaxy Mini S5570.

    is there a possibility that the things (Proximity, magnetic, orientation sensors, HQ video playback, Camera, Voice search) that doesn’t work will be solved in next versions of Android?

    Thank you for your answer in advance,

    • Yes, it is very much possible, depending on the developer how quickly he manages to squash those bugs and roll out a new release 🙂

  • Hi THere,
    Really great new 🙂 a VERY BIG thanks to all the developers 🙂
    BUt has any one tried it our.
    PS is the thing stable? i mean no restarts and stuff ??

    • You can expect bugs and random restart issues because this ROM is still in early stages. But it doesn’t hurt to try out on your phone if you are used to installing custom ROMs! 😉
