Unroot and fix your Galaxy Y using ODIN: Unbrick to Gingerbread

unroot galaxy y androidhardwares.comSo, here’s what many users were waiting for. Some Galaxy Y ROMS over the internet have been reported to be unstable and users have been trying hard to get back their Galaxy devices to normal condition. This has been due to the instability of ROMs for ICS upgrade in some Galaxy Y devices. While the same ROMs work fine for many, there are some devices which are coming up with innumerable bugs. But, rectifying so many bugs will take quite sometime. So, we have decided to show users the step by step process to get their Galaxy Y restored back to normal. By following this process you will be able to unroot your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 and restore it back to the factory default Gingerbread Android 2.3 OS.

Reported Bugs of Galaxy Y:

  1. Stuck up at the Samsung Logo (Samsung Logo stuck after Galaxy upgrade to ICS? – Correct here)
  2. Not rebooting
  3. Showing Half Keyboard
  4. Error messages shown as the Galaxy Y boots up

Irrespective of the type of bug that you have, following the steps below will unroot your Galaxy Y. Install the default Gingerbread Android 2.3 OS and bring back your smartphone to normal.

Required items to unroot your Galaxy Y:


The process to restore your Galaxy Y:

  1. Extract the Official Android 2.3 Gingerbread ZIP file to S5830DDKQ8_S5830ODDKQ7_S5830DDKQ8_HOME.tar.md5 on a folder on your desktop
  2. Run the downloaded Odin tool as Administrator
  3. Check One Package, Auto Reboot and Protect OPS checkbox in Odin Tool (See Screenshot below)
  4. Click on OPS and select the Cooper OPS (See Screenshot below)
  5. Click on One Package and select the Official Android ZIP md5 that you extracted in Step 1 (See Screenshot below)
  6. Do NOT change other options and keep ODIN on your PC running
  7. Switch off your Galaxy Y and reboot in Recovery mode by pressing Home button, Volume Down button and Power button together
  8. Connect your Android to your Computer via USB as soon as Recovery mode starts up
  9. ODIN should show up your Galaxy Y connected (If it does not connect it means the ODIN version is not compatible. Click here to get a list of other ODIN versions)
  10. When ODIN shows connected, Click Start and wait for around 10 minutes to see the message PASS
  11. On your Galaxy Y, enter into Recovery Mode again (holding Home+Power together this time)
  12. You can browse using Vol up/down keys. Select Wipe Data/Factory Data and then Wipe Cache Partition.
  13. Reboot your Phone. Your phone should be restored back to Normal.

      I. Before You Begin:

    I have only recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Ace Gt5830. It was originally with Koodo but I unlocked it to switch to Virgin Mobile. I was having issues with texts not sending and the network not being recognized so I tried a few things to fix it. My mistake was downloading Cyanogenmod into my phone.

    I want to flash Gingerbread back onto it (which I have done before on this computer, so I know I had it working- I have all necessary drivers and Kies and everything), but the computer and Odin no longer recognize the phone. I believe this is due to the mod. Is there any way for me to get rid of this mod and back to the official Gingerbread version?

  27. anubhav

    i’m facing a different problem. i cant access even my recovery mode! It gets stuck right in the very beginning at the SAMSUNG logo….then after a while it asks to download an OS (That screen has a small ODIN written on top corner, if this is of any help?)

    Please help!!
