After finding out just what kind of pre-requisites are fit for this smartphone, you will have to follow a complete set of guidelines if you want to land the Simplicity V5 Build 2.1, and basically the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, without too many worries.

Installation instructions

  1. The first prompt that comes to mind: download the tool that’s needed for the update on your phone’s SD card root (this firmware is called Simplicity Dandelion Version 2-1.zip), then find something that’s dubbed Status bar mod v2 and have it flashed in the same memory card root of your Galaxy Y S5360.
  2. For the second guideline you will need to power the handset off and then do the following to make it reach Recovery Mode: simultaneously press and hold Menu, Volume Up and Power. You should, after you’re in the mode we mentioned, do this: opt for “Apply update from SD card”. The CWM.zip that’s on your smartphone should also be chosen.
  3. Next up are these few tasks: perform, one after the other, Factory Reset/Wipe Data and Wipe Cache Partition.
  4. Now opt for “Install zip from SD card” and also be sure to select “Choose zip from SD card“. Opt for Simplicity Dandelion archive when you reach the phone’s root folder.
  5. The flashing of this firmware is going to begin pretty soon, so just have a little patience. Once you see that the ROM is flashed on your Galaxy Y GT-S5360, you will have to reboot the CWM and then opt for “Install zip from SD card” from the Recovery Mode.
  6. Up next on the list: select “Choose zip from SD card“. After having done that: opt for the Status bar mod v2 file “Simplicity Mod Status Bar.zip”. The flashing of the latter will take a couple of minutes.
  7. Last instruction: restart the Galaxy Y.
