  1. The updating process wipe your data from your phone. So, we advise you to take backup of everything. Here is the few list what should you have to backup before start to update:
  2. If you already have a custom recovery installed on your phone then we recommend you to take backup by using that since it creates a complete image of your existing phone setup.
  3. Next charge your device fully or up to 75%. Because, if the battery level is low it will get Switched OFF suddenly while the ROM is installed or the firmware is updating and if that happens, your phone might get bricked or get dead permanently. So, to avoid that we recommend you to charge your Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 smartphone fully.
  4. Next enable the USB debugging mode in your Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 smartphone is ticked (Check marked).
  5. Next uninstall or disable the antivirus apps both in your computer and smartphone. Otherwise, it will interrupt with the updating process.

  7. Next perform a Dalvik Cache wipe from the recovery mode.
  8. Finally, download and install the USB Driver for Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 smartphone.

  8. How long does it take to reboot?

  9. vesharmen says:

    it’s rebooting for 20 minutes already, is it ok?

    • Well this is a custom ROM, you may need to reboot your device manually for the first time after installing this ROM.

  10. How much time it would take for the first rebooting?

    • It is unpredictable Raghav, so if it doesn’t reboot automatically for the first time, you may do that manually.

  11. Isn’t Jellybean’s memory requirement 512MB? The Y only has 290MB of RAM.

    • For all those who are getting CyanogenMod boot animation, follow the procedure given below:

      1) Download the ROM package to your computer and open the .zip file (don’t extract it). Once done, move over to the folder “System -> Media” and in it delete the “Boot Animation” file.

      2) Once done, close the file and follow the procedure given above. It will work!

    • Sathish says:

      If the ROM is safe, then you can try it. As far as I know there is not KitKat based ROM available for Galaxy Y. If you come across anything, share it with us.

  52. VIJAYAKUMAR says:

    Hi! Sathish,
    I am using Samsung Galaxy Y model. I have given my mobil for service and they upgraded the OS. Now i could not able to install new application. It says that the mobil space is insufficient. I asked the same with service people and they says that the upgraded version accompanies more space and it could not be downgraded.

    Is it possible to restore with master OS?
