How to Upgrade Galaxy Music GT-S6010 to Android 4.1.2 XXUBML1

Since XXUBML1 official firmware for Australia has just become available for Galaxy Music GT-S6010, let’s use it to update this device to Android 4.1.2! The procedure’s do’s and don’ts are detailed below.

A smartphone that’s different to the Samsung S6010 won’t be upgraded to the new Jelly Bean 4.1.2. What will happen to it is this: a bricking. So we must ask you to use our method only if you have the correct variant. If you do and it’s running a stock ROM, you can, instead of our guide, use one which lets you update the phone via KIES. That’s because the KIES logo is enabled on the new firmware.

Sticking with our tutorial will get you an automatic adjustment for the size of widgets, a fixed frame of 60 fps and the addition of a new keyboard. Touch anticipation, Google Now, free style widget, mini apps and triple buffering continue today’s list of novelties. Which list is completed by other goodies: Group cast, pop up play, extended Vsync timing, sync and connect email updates and all share.

The rooted version of your handset implies that there will be some cons to the upgrade. Like the following: your handset’s system partition shall be erased at once and the root access will be revoked. As usual, though, the important data and internal/external SD cards will both be spared damage. Galaxy-Music-S6010


If you’re OK with what we mentioned above, look at these pre-requisites:

  • the handset’s battery unit should be fully charged;
  • Windows is the OS that must run on your laptop;
  • the notebook must sport USB drivers for the smartphone;
  • we suggest making a standard backup followed by one which should be a full NANDroid one;
  • then make sure the security programs on your notebook and the Galaxy Music GT-S6010 are not turned on anymore;
  • enable, on the handset, USB Debugging.

Step by step instructions

Should you have done everything underlined in these requirements, go ahead with the first step of this tutorial.

  1. You will need to do this to complete it: both the Jelly Bean 4.1.2 XXUBML1 (you can get the Australia variant by going to this page) and Odin must be downloaded on the notebook. The end of the download should be followed by this step: unzip the files with WinZip, WinRar or 7Zip, then boot your device in a mode called Download Mode.
  2. We need you to do that by pressing and holding Home, Volume Down and Power simultaneously and let go of them; when a screen containing a warning is shown, you can press Volume Up and move on to the other tasks.
  3. Which are these: launch, on the laptop, the Odin as Admin and make sure there’s a connection between your Galaxy Music GT-S6010. This connection needs a certain item to be successful. This tool is the USB cord of your handset. After you use it, the Odin is going to smoothly look for the smartphone.
  4. Upon finding it at last, the display will contain the following: a yellow ID:COM box and “Added!!“. Their presence will indicate a successful plugging.
  5. After the latter is done, you have to tap BL next, select a file with BL in the name, click on AP, opt for a file with AP in the name, tap CP, opt for a file with CP in its name, tap CSC, choose a file which has CSC in the name, tap PIT and choose a file with an extension called .pit.
  6. The next will have to happen: activate the boxes that have F. Reset Time, Auto Reboot and Re-partition as their names. After the activation happens, you should click on “Start“. This is how the new firmware will be installed on the handset.
  7. The process shall be finished once the Galaxy Music GT-S6010 starts to automatically reboot and, when done with this, displays a message in green reading “Pass“. Should this be the case, you are done with the guide after you unplug the smartphone from your laptop.
  8. When the devices are disconnected from one another, you should explore the new official firmware at once. For that, we recommend using this way: after you tap Settings, go to About Phone and tap it, too. The XXUBML1 is now prepared for you to check it out. So do that for now and you will receive access to all of the goodies we presented in the previous paragraphs.

If there’s something you didn’t expect, you should get rid of the new firmware by restoring the old one. The NANDroid backup is the one which will do that for you by revoking the update procedure.
