What You Need To Remember When Updating Your Samsung Galaxy SL I9003 Firmware

February 6th, 2012 No comments

If you already have a Samsung Galaxy SL I9003, it will be a good idea to update it with an Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread DDKP1 or DDKP2 firmware to make the most out of your device. By rooting your phone, you can use third party apps, as well as allow it to access your system files. This will allow you to customize your phone and download apps that usually require root access to your device. Although this will void your Samsung Galaxy’s warranty, you can still restore it to its factory settings to reset the device.

What you need to know about rooting

Updating the firmware of your phone will not root it thus, will not void the warranty in any way. If however you have previously rooted the phone, updating its firmware will revoke the root access and the voided warranty will be reclaimed.

Special instructions to keep in mind

If you are currently using a custom ROM firmware, one of the first things that you need to do is turn off your device and set it to its recovery mode. This can be done by pressing both the Volume UP key + OK buttons simultaneously, together with the Power Button.

In the phone’s recovery mode, select the factory reset option or the Wipe Cache partition before finally rebooting your device.
