I didn't see information about this phone on this forum.

So i'm calling for votes for people who wants Cyanogen on this Smartphone.

Currently it handles 2.3.6 perfectly. It has a small Touchscreen, a physical QWERTY Keyboard and Optical Trackpad.

This Smartphone is very similar to the "Samsung Galaxy Y" but with less screen and a Keyboard.

More info: Samsung Galaxy Y Pro.

Please, give your support to this Physical Keyboard Android Smartphone and the Samsung Galaxy Young Family. =)

Best Regards,

Sebastian.

It's an excellent upgrade for:

- Black Berry users.

- And physical QWERTY Keyboard users.

It's a grade alternative for:

- Slider physical QWERTY Keyboard users.

Pros: I don't know whether it's the relatively small screen size, but the battery seems to last quite a bit. B)

Cons: alarms do not work when the phone is turned off (very 1996-like!) ^_^

Yes please, I'd love to use a CyanogenMod ROM on my Galaxy Y Pro. A colleague has put it on his HTC Desire and it made the phone faster, and gave better features. I'd really enjoy a similar ROM for this handset.

This is a very good piece of hardware (3MP camera, 832MHz processor, a touch-screen AND physical buttons for a qwerty keyboard to list but a few). It would be a fantastic contender against Blackberry phones. However, while the system is decent there's much to be left desired:

  • it could do with OpenGL ES 2.2 (it has 2.0) to use simple image editing apps such as Instagram - I had CM7 on my Samsung Galaxy Europa (which has lower specs) and it ran Instagram, so why can't this? (question for Samsung, and appeal to CM devs)
  • it keeps dismounting and remounting the SD card a few times a day
  • it sometimes restarts randomly
  • it sometimes does not connect to 3G networks when they are available and I can't connect to Market or other sites without having to retry a few times

If you could create a CM mod I think a lot of people would love this, especially people forced to buy Blackberry phones because touch-screens really are not for everyone, and they're not great with sweaty hands or large fingers, and simply because a physical keyboard is the best option for texting and it works very well alongside a touch-screen as on this phone.The other key features on this phone include the FM radio, ThinkFree Office, the 2 customised keys, and the OTA update features, and preserving these would be ideal.

I own the phone, it is nice, small form factor, a good keyboard. It is a good blackberry alternative. If you really port the cyanogen mod on this device I will donate 20 bucks.

Hello

I have a rom on my phone that is changed by the telecommunication corporation and this rom version is Android 2.3.5 and I cannot upgrade to 2.3.6 by Kies (says it is already updated, despite knowing that there is 2.3.6).

I successfully install ClockworkMod on B5510. Can I download the 2.3.6 from Samfirmware and apply it using ClockworkMod?

Hello, I have the Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos B5512, and I´d like the cyanogenmod on my device. It differs from the single SIM Card (B5510) in the following feactures:

samsung-galaxy-y-pro-duos.jpg

- Dual SIM Card GSM 850/900/1800/1900 - SIM1 & SIM2

- Front Camera (VGA)

- Principal Camera 3.15MP

- Standard battery, Li-Ion 1350 mAh

I don't think it'd change that much... I think I had 2.3.5 too when I bought it last month (unbranded) and then it almost immediately updated itself to 2.3.6 OTA.

Ice Cream Sandwich, on the other hand, I think would be a HUGE improvement! :)

Indeed. ICS would be great. But we don't have ICS, so I really want install 2.3.6.

Do you think I can install a rom from Samfirmware with Clockworkmod?

Hello

I have a rom on my phone that is changed by the telecommunication corporation and this rom version is Android 2.3.5 and I cannot upgrade to 2.3.6 by Kies (says it is already updated, despite knowing that there is 2.3.6).

I successfully install ClockworkMod on B5510. Can I download the 2.3.6 from Samfirmware and apply it using ClockworkMod?

It is possible to update your B5510 but not with the widespread offered firmwares-packages that only contain the PDA file. Someone who has a z3x-box (in the Philippines) has downloaded a full installation package containing all the necessairy files. (BOOT/PDA/MODEM/CSC/PIT)

I succesfully upgraded my firmware but no European languages are supported. English (UK/US) and some others. But no Dutch, Spanish, Portuguees etc.

When you upgrade you most probably will loose CWM because you also flash a new bootloader.

matteosg posted in this XDA-thread at post #6 a download link for the full package: http://forum.xda-dev....php?p=26251171

Could you explain how you installed CWM or got the right version/information fot it?

Cyanogenmod for B5510 would solve a lot of flashing problems. Because from what I know it is not possible to flash the PDA file with CWM.

EDIT: Never mind... solved the firmware flashing problem...Cyanogenmod is still wanted though:

I found a way to flash the single PDA-file.

The trick is to split-up the single file in a MODEM, CSC and PDA file. This can be done with the tool 'Splitfus2' developed by Dokey73 on XDA.

Download links and instructions are provided in the tread. Simply put for windows users: Install 'cygwin' a linux terminal emulator with some plugins. Place the program 'Splitfus' and the firmware-PDAin the installation dir. Execute the program and you will receive three files you can flash with Odin.

I have done so succesfully with B5510BVLD1_B5510AMNKJ2_B5510BVLD1_HOME.tar.md5. And flashing the three produced files.

I've done this by using the following command for starting Splitfus without parameters:

splitfus2.exe B5510BVLD1_B5510AMNKJ2_B5510BVLD1_HOME.tar.md5[/CODE]

and flashed [b][u]WITHOUT[/u][/b] any pit or BOOT files and [b][u]didn't[/u][/b] select re-partition.

(this is also mentioned in the released readme.txt when you split the PDA file)

- The first time I received an error message 'can't open file' in cygwin. --> reinstall cygwin and select the plugins for installation that give support for tar/zip/md5

- Easy way to get things working is to place the Splitfus2.exe in the BIN folder in the installation folder of cygwin. And place the _base folder with userdata.img in the HOME\[i]user[/i] folder of the cygwin installation folder. Place your Firmware file in the same HOME\[i]user[/i] folder and your good to go

I have succesfully flashed the splitup:

[CODE]
B5510BVLD1_B5510AMNKJ2_B5510BVLD1_HOME.tar.md5 (Spain - orange)
B5510CEKK1_B5510KPPKI2_B5510XXKK2_HOME.tar.md5 (Netherlands)
[/CODE]

Note for Dutch users. The latest Spain firmware gives an altered layout for the keyboard. Mostly correct, but @ is under a different key and also a few others.

I don't know what's wrong. Maybe Cygwin has not all the plugins that are necessairy and that they should be downloaded during install.

But I made it easy for you: I've uploaded the package you need to Rapidshare: https://rapidshare.com/files/1991416412/B5510_CEKK1_KPPKI2_XXKK2_by_SplitFUS2.zip

I have flashed it myself, but as always: use it at your own risk.

Thank you for the answer, it would be really great if you could upload the same for the French rom which can be found here : http://www.hotfile.com/dl/135231834/c516161/B5510XXKJ2_B5510OXAKJ2_COA.zip.html Thank you in advance :)

Here you go... (but I don't know if it is specifically French, Samfirmware.com states that it is Romanian http://www.sammobile...age=8&view=3532)

Link: https://rapidshare.c...y_SplitFUS2.zip

But maybe you want to look at this thread I started: http://www.sammobile.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5865&p=36826#post36826

I understand your problem. I flashed the Spanish firmware and my keybindings changed too. The Spanish alphabet has some different letters than the Dutch.

I am sorry, but I do not know of a specifically French (or Belgian) firmware that supports AZERTY keyboard settings.

If you do find one I wil be happy to convert (Splitfus) it for you.

You do realise this firmware is for the S5830 (Galaxy ACE) and not for B5510 (Galaxy Y pro / Galaxy TXT)? This firmware will probably brick your phone. I wouldn't recommend flashing this. I've tried to splitfus2 this firmware, but it is not possible. I get error messages when I process this firmware.

Maybe this is something you can use? http://www.mobyware....ree-174737.html
