I am using a Samsung GT-S5620 and I want to update my phone. What are my options for doing this? Are there official updates?
Better if you Google your query. I found rooting article related to Samsung on http://www.techgama.com There you can search for rooting + Samsung section. All the best :)
I think you should refer to http://www.droidextra.org they also provide rooting and rom tips and tutorials for eg. they wrote a guide to root micromax a88.
Thanks for this, you can visit out some of these websites to find more details on it, Guzzler App as well as Alltechnonews and finally Byucm
Well you can download apps from here DownloadAppsforPC and check it out by yourself.
Well it depends, please see any professional and nice blog or website on Rooting of Android phones, you can check out Tecnigen.com Team about this and they might give you working solution.
You can ask from http://www.androidrooting.com/ team. If you want any rooting guide then they will always help you to write latest rooting tutorials.
Make sure to reboot your phone often. It boost performance and helps avoid errors. Rebooting also let's the phone check for filmware updates.
Be content with the software version you have, it is more likely than enough for your needs. Wait until an OTA update becomes available, which might be never so keep your fingers crossed.
you can also install android on your monte .. check youtube videos
If you have a DataPlan or internet connection on your phone, you can check official firmware update by tapping settings->About device->Software Update->Update (check for update) . Also have the auto-update ticked.
If you do not have internet on your Phone, install Samsung Kies and plug in the phone to the PC to check for firmware update.
BTW it is a java phone and not an android phone and Internal memory is only 200 MB. Forget Android, you may only spoil the phone. However if you still insist, then refer to at your own risk http://youtu.be/a6juvl9nu1Q under "description - show more" it has full instructions for installing android on the Samsung S5620 Monte. Of course, you risk bricking your phone
if there is no official os upgrade (samsung kies) then you have to go for custom roms...
You must go for official updates route and not by other methods as there comes huge responsibility for maintaining your device after that.
But since,your phone is not an Android(Samsung Monte),it's better to update it via -
Samsung PC Studio
