Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300 can now be updated to Android 2.3.6 XXLF5 official firmware by Samsung. This phone is a pretty low end Samsung Android phone, but it also has  a low price as compared to a few better ones. We cannot expect Samsung to bring Android 4.0 ICS on it at all. For now, you can install the official Android 2.3.6 XXLF5 software update on Galaxy Pocket.

As you read further, we will guide you through the entire process of how to update Galaxy Pocket GT-S5300 to Android 2.3.6 XXLF5 (United Kingdom) official firmware using ODIN. Make sure you backup all your data as given below because you will have to wipe everything in order to install this firmware. Let’s continue with the tutorial below.

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 ;-)

This ROM is completely stock with no third-party changes or apps included in it. You can use this firmware to unroot your Android device with the official update.

Android 2.3.6 XXLF5 Firmware Details:

PDA: S5300XXLF5

Make sure you have installed all your USB drivers for the Samsung Galaxy Pocket to connect it with the computer. Download Samsung Galaxy Pocket 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:

Data can also be backed up using Samsung KIES for their devices, but if you backup data manually, you get more options what top choose from and it is very easy to move data across Android devices from different manufacturers, i.e moving Samsung Galaxy Note backup data to HTC One X.

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 2.3.6 XXLF5 firmware on Galaxy Pocket S5300.
