Enjoy Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread on your Galaxy Fit!!
After a looong research, & after not finding a gingerbread ROM for Galaxy Fit, I had almost given up my hopes to see 2.3.3 gingerbread on my Galaxy Fit. Well... almost!!!
Finally managed to get my hands over OFFICIAL Samsung 2.3.3 firmware for G-Fit. Samsung will eventually release 2.3.3 for Fit in India but that will probably take a long time. But if you don't want to wait, following is the way...
This is the very SHORT guide for Advanced users only. Do your own research & understand every step before you do it. I will probably update detailed steps when I get some time.
1: Goto samfirmware.com Galaxy Fit page:
Login - www.SamFirmware.com
2: Download the 2.2 FROYO firmware labelled S5670XXKB1 (This is a russian firmware but you can easily change language to English)
3: Flash the firmware over your current one with help of ODIN. Follow the guides at samfirmware.com
4: Install the latest version of Samsung Kies 126.96.36.19944-11
Link: Download Samsung Kies 188.8.131.5244_11 Free - Search, browse, download and manage apps for mobile devices - Softpedia
(Install on a OS other than windows 7, as firmware update does NOT work on win7. Xp worked for me.) You may also have to isntall .net framework 4 & windows media format 11. Search for the links on google.
5: Connect your Galaxy Fit with S5670XXKB1 & Kies will popup message a new firmware is available.
Firmware details : S5670XXKPF (GINGERBREAD.XXKPF)
6: Follow the steps to update firmware through Kies.
7: Change the language back to English from Russian.
Update: Official build 2.3.6
