Procedure to install Android 2.2.2 Froyo DDKC4 firmware on Galaxy Pro GT-B7510
Step 1: Download and extract both the above files to a convenient location on your computer.
Step 2: Then power off your Galaxy Pro device.
Step 3: After your Galaxy Pro is completely switched off, boot it into downloading mode. The same can be done by pressing and holding the ‘Home button + Power button + Volume down key’ simultaneously until you see a warning message. You can then leave all the keys.
Step 4: Keeping your device in the same condition, connect it to your computer using the micro USB cable. Then just press the Volume up button to continue. This will directly land your Galaxy Pro into downloading mode. Refer to the screenshot.
Step 5: On the PC, launch the downloaded ‘Odin Multi Downloader3-v3.12.7′ software which you’ve just received after extraction. As soon as you open it, the ID: COM section located at the top left corner will turn light blue. Also, an Added message will appear in the message box window. This will confirm that your Galaxy Pro has been successfully connected to your computer.
Note: If such a thing doesn’t happen then it’s more likely to be a problem with the mobile specific drivers. So just confirm whether you’ve properly installed the mobile specific drivers on your computer or not. You can install them via Samsung Kies or manually install them from the links given in the Pre-Requisites section. If the problem persists try changing the USB cable or the USB port.
Step 6: Then go to the Options menu present on the Odin window. There you’ll find Auto Reboot and F.Reset Time options. Tick only these two options and leave all the other options as they are.
Note: Do not tick the Re-partition option as it may increase the risk of bricking your device.
Step 7: Next, click on the AP button on the Odin window and browse to the firmware package file which you’ve downloaded and select it.
Step 8: You need to just initiate the firmware flashing process now. For doing so, click on the Start button located on the Odin window.
Note: The phone will automatically boot itself while the process goes on. Do not interrupt the flashing process by disconnecting the micro USB cable.
Step 9: Be patient and wait for few minutes until the flashing process completes. As soon as it completes successfully, you’ll see that the ID: COM section on the Odin window is turned green with the message ‘Pass’ on it. On the other side, your Galaxy Pro smartphone will automatically restart itself. This will confirm that the Official Android 2.2.2 Froyo DDKC4 firmware has been successfully installed on your Samsung Galaxy Pro GT-B7510. Now you may safely disconnect your phone from the computer by removing the micro USB cable.
Note: If the process fails or if Odin gets stuck or in case your device gets into a boot loop, then close the Odin window, remove the battery from your Galaxy Pro and re-insert it. Again go into downloading mode and follow the same procedure as given above.
