How to Flash/Install G70XXKPH Android 2.3.6 Firmware Update for Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 Wi-Fi YP-G70

This is a simple step by step procedure on how to manually flash or install the G70XXKPH Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread firmware on Samsung Galaxy Player YP-G70 or called as Galaxy S Wifi 5.0. In this method, we are using Odin downloader and the  original stock ROM G70XXKPH from Samsung’s Kies official firmware released in France. This procedure will only work on a specific variant of Galaxy Player released in Europe with product code YP-G70CW.

This WILL NOT WORK on other multimedia player like the Galaxy S Wi-Fi 4.0 YP-G1CW, Galaxy Player 50 YP-G50CW and the US versions Samsung Galaxy Player 4.0 YP-G1CWY and Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 YP-G70C/NAW. So, just check out your device product information before applying this guide, for it will bricked your device in no time if you use the ROMs as stated here.

I just created this guide for such certain reports of users on some forums that already bricked their Galaxy Players for flashing a wrong ROMs because they can’t wait for the official firmware releases on their regions via Samsung Kies.

Disclaimer: We shall not be held responsible if anything happens to your device by applying this method. Proceed at your own risk.

– Back up all important files stored on the player, contacts, messages, videos, music etc.
– Make sure your Galaxy player’s battery is charge at its peak or at least 50 to 70% remaining power. Much more recommended if it’s fully charge, this will avoid risk of power failure that result on bricking the device.
– You need to have Kies installed on your PC/laptop, to have the driver of your player also installed on your computer or grab the driver then disable Kies when running Odin.
– Use a good and working USB cable for your Galaxy S Wifi 5.0

Driver: Samsung driver ( if no Kies installed on your PC/laptop)
