[Official]Upgrading Samsung Galaxy 3 I5801 to 2.2 [DDJP2-India] via Kies

Samsung India just pushed their 2.2 Froyo upgrade for I5801 Galaxy 3 users via Kies.
All Galaxy 3 users in India get to taste the Froyo version of Android OS officially!
The official Froyo update is I5801DDJP2.
To update to this version of Froyo you need to install Samsung Kies version 2.0.0.11032_12_9, this software can be downloaded from here.
This software can be installed on Windows XP/Vista/7.

Prerequisites:
  1. For being eligible for getting this upgrade you must be running Samsung's 2.1 DDJG6 firmware.
    If you have installed any other version then you need to first flash 2.1 DDJG6 and then upgrade to 2.2 Froyo DDJP2.
    To install 2.1 DDJG6 follow instructions from here.
  2. Your Galaxy 3 must be charged at least 50%. I recommend charging it to 100%.
  3. Make sure you have a fast internet connection. Your entire firmware will be downloaded first and then flashed.
  4. Make sure you sync all your contacts and backup all your data before upgrading.
Once you install Samsung Kies, connect your Galaxy 3 to your computer and follow the on screen instructions...

I'll go through the entire process here.
  1. As soon as you connect your Galaxy 3, Samsung Kies will prompt you for a firmware upgrade for your device.
  2. Now click on update to begin the process.
  3. Read the instructions carefully and tick the checkbox that says I have read all the above information.
  4. Now click on Start upgrade button to actually begin the upgrade process, make sure you have read all the instructions before starting the upgrade process.
  5. PLEASE DO NOT DISCONNECT THE CABLE CONNECTED TO THE PC.
  6. It will now prepare to upgrade your GT-I5801.
  7. After that it will download the actual firmware for flashing your GT-I5801. This step might take some time, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
  8. Once the firmware is downloaded, it will start to actually install the downloaded firmware on your Galaxy 3 GT-I5801.
  9. Once the installation is completed, you will get "Firmware upgrade complete" message and the description of the upgrade as seen below,
  10. Your phone will restart, it will take some time to start for the first time, and you will be stuck on black screen with Samsung written at the center.
  11. Once your phone starts you can now remove and plug in the USB cable and click on GT-I5801 you will see the message "This is the latest firmware" on your screen.
  12. Congratulations you have successfully upgraded your Galaxy 3 GT-I5801(Apollo) to 2.2 DDJP2 Froyo!!!
Here are some screenshots of the new DDJP2 Froyo build from Samsung for Galaxy 3 GT-I5801(Apollo),


Have you upgraded your Galaxy 3 to the latest 2.2 Froyo Official from Samsung India????

Update(18-04-2011):

You can now get Swype working on DDJP2!

Here is the link for detailed instructions Swype-DDJP2!.

Note: All those who want to flash 2.2 Froyo-DDJP2 on their Galaxy 3 without using Kies can follow instructions from [ODIN] Installing 2.2 Froyo DDJP2 on Samsung Galaxy 3.

  3. keep getting unknown. Does not upgrade my firmware. Can we get the official rom from some place so I can flash it directly without KIES

    ReplyDelete
  4. @Jal
    Can you tell me on which firmware you are currently???
    If you have installed any other firmware than 2.1 DDJG6 you wont get this update.

    Kindly install 2.1 DDJG6 from here and then upgrade to 2.2 DDJP2 as mentioned above!

    ReplyDelete
  5. from your pictures your orig. firmware ends with: ... CSC: JG6 (INU)

    I flash my phone with I5801DDJG6 but it ends with: ... CSC: JG6 (ORS)
    What's the diference? I can't upgrade via Kies. :-(

    ReplyDelete
  6. @Gautam... I am using the official firmware 2.1 Eclair for Samsung G3 I5801DDJG6

    I tried re-installing Kies. Used on win xp and it shows firmware upgrade faied. Unknown Error.

    Tried it on Win7 and KIES does not show my device. Keeps showing CONNECTING...

    ReplyDelete
  7. @Anonymous
    INU is the CSC for India.
    Flashing I5801DDJG6 should make your CSC JG6(INU).

    You can follow the instructions in this link for changing your CSC.

    Note: the instructions in this link are not tried by me personally so you can try it at your own risk.

    1. Uninstall all the versions of Kies from your computer.
    2. Also remove the Samsung Drivers Package from your computer.
    3. Now download and Kies version 2.0.0.11032_12_9 from here
    4. Once you have installed Kies, now open Kies and go to Tools Menu and select Install drivers.
    5. Once the latest drivers are installed for your device ONLY then try connecting your Galaxy 3 to the computer.

    After your device gets recognized in Kies you can now try and update your device to 2.2 Froyo.

    Also after uninstalling Kies restart your computer be4 you again install the new version of Kies.

  10. Hi gautam...this is tanim

    I bought a samsung galaxy apollo from london carphonewarehouse. When i came to know that an update is available for this mobile in India, I immediately flashed it with the indian rom taking instruction from your previous post (Downgrading Samsung Galaxy 3 I5801 to 2.1 (DDJG6-INDIA))

    When I plugged my phone and started kies, it was showing 'this device can not be updated' as the csc was 'JG6 (XEU)'. So i downloaded kies registry patcher and spoofed the CSC to INU.

    After doing this, the kies is showing that a new update for firmware is available. But when preparation for upgrade is complete (step 6)..a box appears saying 'this device's version can not be updated'

    Can you give a me solution? Where the problem might be?

    ReplyDelete
  11. @Tanim
    I don't know wht exactly seems to be the problem here..
    Once you change the CSC to INU you should be able to update the firmware without issues..

    I'll find out more on this and get back to you!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Thanks..looking foreward

    ReplyDelete
  13. @ Gautam... did everything. Not upgrading. Guess will have to wait till some one can provide with ROM for flashing

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Jal
    This is strange!

    Neways I'll let you know as soon as a ROM is available to download so that you can flash it without using Kies.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thanks... will keep in touch. will follow u on Twitter

  17. Hi Gautam... i have kies 2.0.0.11032_12 installed in my PC... It starts upgrading the version but in the upgrading process it gives me error operation time out every time... what to do... ? i have tried it atleast 4 times

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Mihir
    That is because of ur internet connection.

    You need to be on a fast internet connection to get it done in one go.. :(

    I suggest you wait for some days, once we have the firmware we can flash it without using Kies.

  19. @Gautam... I am having 512 kbps speed internet connection... and i am getting this error at even 7% 8% progress... thanks for your reply...

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Mihir
    There must be too much load on server as lots of people are trying to upgrade at the same time!!

    I think you should try again tomorrow..

    If you continue getting the same time out message, its better to wait and download the firmware when its available and flash it without Kies(Using ODIN).

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Gautam Thanks for the reply... I upgrade it in early morning successfully... but the Swype input is not working in keyboard(Swype Keyboard) have you tried it... ? is it working...? any solution ?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  22. Help needed guys !! I've tried 3 times to update the phone but it lost connection after 47%, 65% and last time after 85% . And the message on kies comes up to do emergency recovery of firmware..can anyone figure out whats wrong ? And it takes hell lot of time to update..like to reach 85% it took 2 hours though m having powerful broadband connection.Is it normal? Do reply please..Thanx in advance..

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Anonymous Try in the early morning... or when ever Traffic is suppose to low (I mean internet Traffic)

    ReplyDelete
  24. @mihir thanx..hope that'll solve problem..

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Anonymous
    Mihir is absolutely correct!
    Try upgrading when there is minimum traffic on server.

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Mihir
    My Swype works just fine!!
    I'm not sure why ur having issues with Swype.. :(

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Mihir
    I checked it again!! Swype doesn't seem to work properly, there is some bug..
    You can use Swype keyboard for normal input by pressing each button individually but the Swype gesture is not working! :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Gautam ... Yes for normal input it's working fine... just can't used for Swype gesture... Let me know if you found any solution...

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Mihir
    Sure! will let u know..

    ReplyDelete
  30. My internet connection is slow.Is there any problem if the download cancel in the middle.

    ReplyDelete
  31. @aaniket
    If ur on a slower internet connection u'll get operation time out..
    If you cancel the upgrade process in middle then ur phone will no longer work n u'll have to flash 2.1 again from here.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks.Please give some suggestion how to upgrade my phone.

    I am using the official firmware 2.1 Eclair for Samsung G3 I5801DDJG6.The maximum broadband speed in here is 50-60 kbps.

    ReplyDelete
  33. @gautam, is flash working in browser?

    ReplyDelete
  34. @aaniket
    Once we get the firmware to download then we can flash it directly without Kies.
    That should solve your issues..

    Kindly wait till the firmware is available for download and then flash via ODIN.

  35. @Anonymous
    Flash doesn't work in the browser.
    Adobe doesn't support the processor used in Galaxy 3.. :(

    We might have to wait till Adobe launches a version specifically for Galaxy 3's processor..

    ReplyDelete
  36. Getting timed out issue while kies downloading firmware..

    ReplyDelete
  37. @Mohit
    It is due to too much load on server leading to congestion...
    You can try updating in the morning, bit early preferably..

    Also this msg will keep coming unless you are on a decent(512Kbps+) internet connection..

    ReplyDelete
  38. @Gautam

    What about those, who already flashed it using custom ROM? I would like to install the official one.

    Can we flash it using the official ROM? Where can we get it?

    ReplyDelete
  39. @ArunB
    I didn't understand your question completely..

    If you have already installed some other rom and want to upgrade to DDJP2(official) then you need to downgrade to 2.1(DDJG6) from here and upgrade using Kies as mentioned in this post..

    There is no ODIN version available as of now which you can use to directly flash over any other rom..

    Will let you know as soon as I find it..

    ReplyDelete
  46. @Aditya
    Does your phone get detected by Kies on connecting??

    Can you explain a little more as to what exactly you are doing after connecting the phone.

    Note: If your phone is getting connected and you see your device at the left corner then just double click on that.. you will be shown details about your phone your existing version along with the new update details..

    ReplyDelete
  47. i have the latest kies software. when i connect my phone to the pc, it recognises the phone but nothing more than that happens. i have never rooted or messed with the software of my phone.

  48. @Aditya
    That is strange!!
    Are you trying this on a Windows XP OS???

  50. Hi All,17-Apr-11 in India

    Very Good Tutorial, step by step
    Froyo update on Galaxy 3 is awesome. It took me just 20-25 minutes through latest Kies MTNL broadband connection at 1 AM to upgrade. There was no need to restore contacts, applications or SMS,. Kies is beautiful software to upgrade. New widgets and new bundled apps are part of this major release. Please go for it. Never look back…Please follow the blog:

    Upgrading via Kies is the safest method and this should not happen.. Something must have gone wrong..

    Take it to the service center and get it fixed!

    ReplyDelete
  66. @Hardik
    Can you try on a different machine???

    If not, close all the open applications be4 trying to upgrade..
    Just run Kies close all other applications..

    Also upgrading via Kies needs a fast internet connection, else you will get time out issue..

    Let me know if this solves the problem..

  67. @tejuandroid

    Did you try the ZHJPF 2.2 version before upgrading to 2.2 DDJP2???

    ZHJPF had no issues, apart from the black screen with Chinese logo at the start appearing immediately after booting..

    If you are not happy with DDJP2 I think you should try ZHJPF before downgrading to 2.1 DDJG6.

    Here are the instructions for flashing 2.2 ZHJPF on your G3

  79. @Jagadeesh
    It may be a software issue! Once you flash to the newer firmware you might not experience it..

    Also don't try to do many things at the same time on G5, use Task Killer from Android market to kill unwanted apps..

    I hope this will definitely help reduce the number of reboots.. :)

  80. Hi dude:)

    its strange!!!

    This chinese version is supporting adobe 10.1 flash player.. great..... ha ha ha

  93. @Gautham
    well i dont know bout the speed, but does that have to do anything with my device gettin disconnected? cuz kies again starts to search n connect the device again.... ?? :(

    n ya i did uninstall prev versions b4 reinstalling...

    ReplyDelete
  94. Just sorted the issue. The input method was set to swype. Earlier when it was set to swype, both swype and Samsung keypad would work. Since there is now a problem with swype, the keypad was not working. I have changed the input method to samsung keypad and now it works. Only need to sort out the swype issue now as detailed by you.

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  95. @Priyank
    Nope! its got nothing to do with that, I thought you were getting time out msg from Kies while upgrading..

    Have you tried this on some other computer???
    Preferably on a different Windows OS???

    Also which OS are you currently using???

    Is it by any chance loose or comes out easily when connected???
    I'm asking this coz there seems to be no other reason y your device should get disconnected!!

  102. @Priyank
    Yes! I can definitely help you with that..

    Go to Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Change User Account Control Settings -> drag the scroll bar to the bottom towards Never notify and click OK.

    A msg box will appear select Yes and a notification will appear at the bottom to restart your PC, now restart your PC on reboot your UAC will be turned off..

    You can always take your phone to the service center and get it upgraded to the latest version free of cost..

  106. @Priyank
    I was asking if you have flashed any firmware be4 for the same reason!
    You can directly flash using ODIN no issues with warranty!

    You can follow the guide here to flash 2.1 DDJG6, you have to just select DDJP2.tar instead of DDJG6 rest all will be same..

    Let me know if you have ne questions..

  110. I am having the same problem as Priyank.
    It says an upgrade is available but when i click on upgrade, it says connecting to gt 5801 lost n reconnects.

    I am guessing its a problem with their servers right, may be overloaded or something.

    and gautam could you please post a tutorial on flashing the newly released official firmware using odin rather than kies coz that should help a lot of ppl like us get froyo.

    ReplyDelete
  111. @Anand
    Yes! Its the problem with servers too much load on them..

    You can install 2.2 Froyo-DDJP2 (Official) using ODIN from here.

    I hope that helps..

  117. At last I successfully updated my galaxy 3 to 2.2 using Samsung Kies.

    I was trying to update it from sunday using my desktop running WinXP SP3. It downloaded firmware but failed to update it saying , "Unexpected Error while upgrading firmware". (I think, thats because of my old desktop (7 years old)). So, I try to upgrade using my friends Laptop running Win7. and it upgraded successfully with first shot...

    ReplyDelete
  118. Hey Gautam
    I updated the Galaxy 3 using kies as the steps u have mentioned however kies displayed me emergency firmware backup screen i backed up. Then samsung logo was displayed with a loading bar after that phone rebooted in normal way and Kies showed me that the firmware has been upgraded. There is no problem with the phone but I am not able to see IMEI no in the status. Please help me as how to get the Imei no back.

    hi sunny,

    None of the froyo firmware version is showing IMEI in status list :) U can use *#06# key to check ur IMEI numb :)

  124. @Anand
    Even after showing pass in ODIN it takes almost 6 mins to start, your phone will be stuck at this point and you will see the Samsung logo as described by you!

    If its taking longer than expected, you can try the same steps again!

    ReplyDelete

    Tejas is correct!
    You can see your IMEI no. with *#06# :)

    ReplyDelete
  130. @Aditya
    If you are facing issues with kies you can flash the official version using Odin.. Here is the link for doing so..

    ReplyDelete
  131. After i installed froyo (it worked after factory resetting from recovery mode), i wanted to root to apply swype patch and i followed your method everthing went ok but when i restarted, the phone was stuck on the i5801 loading screen for about an hour or 2

    so i flashed the firmware again.

    Odin saves the data onto phone and restarts the phone and the phone opens recovery mode but now it gets stuck on a screen saying "delete app data"... "delete files please wait" and it has been stuck there for about 3 hours now and even when i try and open recovery mode, it opens but then this screen comes up

    i tried flashing multiple times but nothing works, cant even factory reset now :(

    Please help me out

    note::(odin for a change shows a disabled reset time box.. it is faded out)

  137. ok...so i followed every step u mentioned while upgrading via odin...but m stuck on the screen showing the samsung text glowing. its been about half an hour since the odin showed 'pass' nd still the text is glowing. i even tried flashing 2 more times but to no avail. what to do...???thnx in advance!

    ReplyDelete
  138. @Aditya
    You are talking abt Kies or ODIN???

    I don't understand y you are not able to boot!

    You can try one thing,
    1. turn off your mobile
    2. press and hold volume up + menu button + power button, you will enter recovery mode
    3. wipe data/factory reset
    4. wipe cache
    5. reboot

    Try this and let me know if this helped!!

    I also tried recovery, but when i select 'wipe/factory reset' the phone hangs. Now when i re-boot the phone it gets stuck on the GT-I5810 LOGO!!! what to do???

  144. i downgraded back to 2.1 following ur instructions. Phones working now. But i m wondering, is the DDJP2 (2.2) SOO UNSTABLE THAT IT JUST freezes wenever it feels like and we encounter a dead end?
    or is it a fault with the flashing? CONFUSED!
    whats ur take on this? Shud i upgrade back to DDJP2 or shud i luk for any other STABLE firmware? Suggest me the best 2.2 firmware available to flash apart from DDJP2. tHANX :-)

    If you are not happy with DDJP2 and want to updagrade to 2.2 then you can try flashing ZHJPF!
    Here is the link to flash ZHJPF on G3.

  148. flashing 2.1 then 2.2 back on did the trick

    But another problem with this firmware...
    Push notifications dont seem to work..

    Anyone had any luck with getting them to work??
    ive tried gmail and also googles chrometophone both dont work :(

  149. thanx gautam,
    BTW have u ever used ZHJPF??? is it stable and gud to use in ur opinion?
    Also, u r currently using DDJP2, RITE? r u experiencing similar probs like Anand nd me?
    Sorry for askin soo many questions! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  150. @Aditya
    Yup! I was using ZHJPF be4 flashing DDJP2.
    Its stable better than DDJP2 IMO.
    I didn't experience any issues with any of the firmwares I have used so far!

    ReplyDelete
  151. not even DDJP2??? NO FORCE CLOSES OR FREEZES?

    ReplyDelete
  152. @Aditya
    Yup! Currently on I'm on DDJP2 and I feel its bit slower compared to ZHJPF, but no force closes or freezes!!
    There must be some other issue causing the force close on your device!!

  153. Hi Gautam,
    My phone is a completely stock and untinkered phone and shows the firmware as JG5. Tried updating from Kies but my campus net blocks it. So my only solution for now is to flash it. But before i do i wanted to ask which would be better DDJP2 or ZHJPF? Beacause after reading so many problems with JP2 i am a bit unwilling to go with JP2. Also how will the Chinese FW be different from the regular Indian FW? Does flashing FWs have IMEI loss issues? Is flashing a FW 100% safe?

    ReplyDelete
  154. ZHJPF is better IMO.
    Yes you can directly install ZHJPF, follow instructions here.

    Nothing happens to your IMEI.
    Its safe as long as you don't try things on ur own! Stick to the instructions you will be just fine!!

    ReplyDelete
  155. Also is the FW that you have provided (the ZHJPF) the latest and the best?? Are there other FW like a UK version or others that are better or more stable than that one? Plus someone mentioned on the JPF post that it is actually JPE, do you have the FW for the latest upgrade?

  156. hi gautham
    I am having trouble connecting my mobile G3 to system i am using win7,when i am trying to connect it shows connecting that's it nothing happens after it. I am using kies 2.0.0 .what is the problem ??

    ReplyDelete
  157. @Praveen
    1. Uninstall all the versions of Kies from your computer.
    2. Also remove the Samsung Drivers Package from your computer.
    3. Now download and Kies version 2.0.0.11032_12_9 from here(If you have the same version then just install it again)
    4. Once you have installed Kies, now open Kies and go to Tools Menu and select Install drivers.
    5. Once the latest drivers are installed for your device ONLY then try connecting your Galaxy 3 to the computer.

    Note: Before connecting your device restart your computer once..

    Can you just try this and let me know if you get the update??

    ReplyDelete
  158. @Sam
    There is a little confusion between the firmwares, the installation guide here is for ZHJPF complete package as in separate files for Phone, Modem, CSC etc
    There is also a one file firmware from SamFirmware.com same version everything is same but its a single package (only the packaging differs here)
    I think there is a newer version(European) out there for Galaxy 3!
    I'll find out and get back to you!!

    Hi thanx for the reply. Been spending some time on xda forums and found out that JPM is the latest and the best. Available here - http://www.filefactory.com/file/cbeb61f/n/stock_rom_jpm_zip Tools for install - http://www.filefactory.com/file/cbedfa0/n/Flashing_Tools_zip . Not able to test it out right now as the download is too large on my campus net and is thus blocked. Could you try it out and let me know?

  162. lotsa new FWs according to samfirmware.com:

    Europe - XWJPE & XWJPF

    What i wanna find out is if they are improvements on XXJPM or not.

    Plus custom ROMs seem to be the best solution for this phone right now IMO. Atleast as far as xda forums are concerned.

    But i don't have a feasable internet connection right now to download all stocks and customs of them and try them out for myself.

    Would be great if you guys tried some out and get some sort of feedback so i can narrow my sights to one or two. Really disappointed in Samsung though, will be my last Samsung phone unless it's a Nexus.

  164. @Praveen
    Can you give it a try in off peak hours!
    Servers are too congested with too many ppl trying to upgrade at the same time!

    Or you could simply flash using ODIN if you want to avoid all the trouble!

    Let me know if you are still facing the same issue!

  165. hey i have upgraded it dude ...thanq you
    I did it with ODIN
    and one more thing i have faced many problems while connecting my mobile through kies .... but the only suggestion is to format the sd card and try to connect,it's because of MTP driver ... i think some of them are facing the same problem
    I would rather switch to I5810ZHJPF from I5801DDJP2 ... I am on it !!
    thanq once again

    I would suggest you to wait for some time as new firmwares for G3 are coming soon!

  172. @Debiprasad
    There is lots of congestion in the network can u try upgrading during off peak hours??

    Also you need to be on a fast internet connection atleast 512kbps+ to update successfully via Kies!

    If you are on a slower connection you will get time out error!!

    ReplyDelete
  173. @Debiprasad it is much more economical for your network and easier to do it by flashing through ODIN. And it's a sure-shot way... I hadn't ever flashed a FW before yesterday. I have already flashed 5 times and i really feel it is the right way to go. :)

  174. I get an error saying "FirmwareUpdate has stopped working" after it gets stuck on "preparing files for update" window for my Samsung Galaxy 3.

    I desperately need ur help.

    I was flashing one of my friend's phone which is galaxy i5801. I was upgrading it for froyo using odin.

    While flashing power went off and the phone was in downloading mode.

    i switched off the phone and tried to restart it.

    now its neither coming to downloading mode nor gettin start dude.

  176. the phone is completely dead.. i tried hell out of times to switch it to downloading mode.

    but its not getting on... what is the solution for this buddy :)

    ReplyDelete
  177. @teju
    Download mode has to work e1 if power goes off during flashing!
    Try removing the battery and put it again and try to enter the download mode.. also try if recovery mode is working..

    If still you can't enter download mode then u need to carry your phone to service center..

    ReplyDelete
  178. @Tweets
    Which OS are you trying this on???
    There seems to be some issue with Kies when installed on Windows XP, lots of ppl have reported similar issues..

    If you want to upgrade via Kies only then I recommend you try it on some other machine preferably running Windows 7..


    Let me know if that solved your problem..

  189. Hi Guys,
    Yesterday I updated 2.1 to 2.2. Things are fine. Below are few things which are not in order.

    1- GPS stop working. Previously It was working fine with ” GPS booster” application.
    2- SMS application is not sorting SMS . I have to search new message in list of thread.
    3- I didn’t try live wallpaper and swype keypad.

    For those who are facing issues during upgradition, please try to do this using different machine (laptop). I was not able to upgrade using my office laptop but It worked on my personal laptop.

  196. Gautam, Any idea about this GPS issue.
    I am using TATA DOCOMO 3G service. Before this update it was working fine using GPS BOOSTER.
    Now even it is not helping. Did you do something extra for GPS.
