Why is 4.1+ needed in this case?

Good job.

However doing this with Odin is much easier. Odin does the same.
Also Odin does not require installation like Kies and very less disk space.

And some devices like Galaxy y GT-S5360 are not supported by Kies.

It is not only for 4.1+
I used this 1-2 months back on my SGS+ I9001 to install Android 2.3.6 from 2.3.4

Anyway, keep it up!
