How To Install Custom Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM on Samsung Galaxy Y S5360

August 12, 201288 Comments

Samsung Galaxy Y is surely one of the best ever phone produced by Samsung. Samsung basically created this phone just to serve the common people having a mid-range budget who wanted to taste the Android and they surely did it by keeping the price of Samsung Galaxy Y at around Rs.7,000. Soon after its release, the phone was big hit. Developers from all around the globe too started to take interest in this phone. When the ICS was launched, a custom CyanogenMod 9 ICS ROM was released for Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 and now when the Jelly Bean is out, it’s the right time to get your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 dirty with custom Jelly Bean ROM. Here is a small tutorial that will show you How To Install Custom Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM on Samsung Galaxy Y S5360.

Custom Jelly Bean ROM on Samsung Galaxy Y

Disclaimer : If anything happens to your device during this process, no one should be held responsible. Perform this on your own risk.

Checklist : Make sure your phone is having 70% remaining battery. All the drivers of your device’s drivers should be installed on your computer. Also make sure you backup everything like Contacts, SMS, MMS, Internet settings, Passwords etc as everything will be wiped off in this procedure. USB Debugging should be enabled (Settings>Developer Options>USB Debugging). Last but not the least, deactivate or uninstall all your antivirus programs, as they can later hinder the process and that’s something which is not wanted.

Note : Your phone must be rooted and should be installed with ClockworkMod Recovery.

Steps to Install Custom Jelly Bean ROM on Samsung Galaxy Y S5360

Step 1 – Download the Custom Jelly Bean ROM for Samsung Galaxy Y S5360 on your computer.

Step 2 – Now connect your phone to the PC and move the downloaded package of Jelly Bean ROM on Samsung Galaxy Y S5360’s SD Card, but don’t dig too deep to place it.

Step 3 – Now disconnect the phone from PC and switch off your phone. Now restart it in the recovery mode, you can do so by pressing and holding Volume Up + Home + Power Button together.

Step 4 – If you get anything like an exclamation mark, hold the Volume Up and Power keys again.

Step 5 – Now using your ClockworkMod Recovery, wipe off everything like data, cache etc. Then flash the downloaded package.

Step 6 – Once everything is wiped off, go to the main menu and select “flash zip from SD card” and press power button to select.

Step 7 – Now select the option which reads “choose zip from sdcard”.

Step 8 – Now use the Volume Keys to navigate and then browse to the location where you saved the downloaded package and start the flashing process.

Step 9 – Wait for the process to be completed, and once it’s done you should reboot your Samsung Galaxy Y S5360.

Step 10 – Once completely rebooted, you will see Android v4.1 Jelly Bean on Samsung Galaxy Y S5360.

        • Arjun says:

          Friend I think you should try re-installing the CWM on your phone. You can also try downloading the root package once again.

    I followed the steps carefully but I think I (soft) bricked my SGY. Stuck in a boot loop. Currently looking for ways to unbrick my device. I need clarification on Step 1. Do I need to extract the downloaded file from Step 1 before moving it to my SD card?

    I also need more clarification on step 5 please.

    Also, do I have to go be on an official ROM to flash this Custom Jelly Bean ROM? I’m currently on CREED’s ROM. (or I was, since my deviced got bricked)

    • Arjun says:

      Thank you for sharing your problem.

      No you don’t need to extract the file before moving it to the SD card, keep it in the .zip format only.
      Coming to the Step 5, brother you need to perform full data wipe. You can do so by options available in the main menu.

      And I think Creed’s ROM will not matter because we will do full data reset.

      If problem persists, then please contact back. We love to help :)

  3. Andy says:

    • Arjun says:

      Thank you for commenting Bhavik.

      If you are getting stuck on the Galaxy Y screen then you should re-try this process. If the problem persists, contact back :)

      • Ivan says:

      • abody says:

        hi its stuck on samsung galaxy y what i should do

    • Sagar says:

      I installed it twice. Both times it got stuck on the Galaxy Y screen. You should consider adding that this may happen inside the article. Please tell me how to fix this. I need a working phone.

      • Arjun says:

        May be you have not installed the CWM on your GY. Do one thing, flash the stock ROM and then try flashing this custom ROM.

    • hoabeo says:

      ban can chay lai bang odin la duoc :D

  5. Bhavik says:

    anyways its nice .
    i like it..!
    suggest me if i can really install android 4.1

    • Arjun says:

      Thank you for believing in us :)
      And as far as original ROM is concerned, or atleast something similar; we would love to write about it once it is available.

  6. anmol says:

    arjun i followed the steps but i stucked on the galaxy y screen plz help asap i follwed it twice

    • Arjun says:

      Thank you for commenting on our blog Anmol.Are you sure that your phone is rooted and installed with cwm? Also, if you are already running another custom ROM then please try again after moving to official ROM. :-)

  7. shamnad says:

    lol this custom rom not android 4.1 only android 2.3.6

  8. Anton says:

    Hi, just rooted my Samsung Galaxy Y and installed with Jelly Bean ROM. The installation seems fine. But then i am experiencing problems with the phone features..1st,i can not make a call but i can recieve. 2nd, i can not recieve SMS but i am able to send. and 3rd, please advise what antivirus can i use with the rooted phone.

    Your Help will be much appreciated…thanks!

    • Arjun says:

      Thank you for commenting Anton. I guess you should try re-installing the ROM. Coming to a good antivirus, I suggest you Kaspersky and AVG :) Both of them are good.

  9. don be a lame use a proper name says:

    I think you should rename this article as it is misleading.
    THIS IS NOT A REAL JELLY BEAN ROM (4.1) this is a simple modified 2.3.6 rom to look like 4.1!

    • Arjun says:

      Thank you for bringing that in our notice but there are certain points (mentioned below) that should be kept in mind.
      1) This article has been crawled by Google, and now we cannot change the title (SEO reason).
      2) The title isn’t misleading, this is a custom ROM and the customizations make this ROM look almost like the real Jelly Bean ROM.
      3) Galaxy Y by default comes with Gingerbread OS.

  12. jas says:

    my GY brick .. can not be on until out samsung GY. there a way to do? plz……

    • Arjun says:

      You bricked your GY perhaps because you did something wrong. You can search Google for tutorials on how to Un-Brick Samsung Galaxy Y etc. Don’t worry :)

  13. Artur says:

    Oi, tem algum problema se o celular for roteado ? Porq o meu celular é roteado..

  14. Yash Dave says:

    All ran well.
    But the language problem.
    Even though you set the default language to English,Some of the menu language still remains in some other language..I think Russian.
    Please help with this soon

    • Arjun says:

      Try updating the ROM to it’s latest version. If the language still doesn’t change, try changing it from the Settings. If it won’t change even then, I guess then it’s a bug in this ROM.

  15. ATHUL says:

    first should i install cmw then reboot n then do the process????????

  16. Jithin AC says:

    Dear Arjun,
    after reboot i am getting samsung galaxy y screen only … and i am not able to reboot from by pressing 3 keys( i.e. vol up+home and power button)

    • Arjun says:

      For rebooting you need to go to the main menu of the recovery mode. You can use Volume keys to navigate and the Back button to go back.

  17. Hashim Khan says:

    Arjun bhai yar galaxy y mein default rom kaisy dalon?
    jaldi batana im waiting.

    • Arjun says:

      Hashim Brother :) You can flash the default (stock) ROM of Galaxy Y by simply using the backup and in case you didn’t make the backup file, you can download it from 3rd party websites and flash it in the same way we flash custom ROMs. :)
