It is a rumor that Samsung galaxy y is upgradable to android 2.4.1.Users of galaxy y are reporting that they have got a fake message from their network providers about device upgrade.The message states that.

“New android software version 2.4.1 for your Samsung Device is here! Please upgrade for better data experience at”

galaxy y no update

Actually this message is fake one and galaxy y is not upgradable to android 2.4.1.

What Is Android 2.4.1
Google has developed android 2.3.x which is called gingerbread and there is nothing like android 2.4.1 because we never heard about it from google.So I checked the software update feature by using the phone only and also by Samsung KIES,but unfortunately there is no update available for galaxy y like android 2.4.1.The device is only upgradable to android 2.3.6 gingerbread.Below is the firmware details.

Android version : 2.3.6
Baseband version : S5360DDLK1
Kernel version :
Build number : GINGERBREAD.DDLK2

No Further Updates For Galaxy Y
Samsung has confirmed that galaxy y is not further upgradable to android 4.0 or android 4.1 jellybean due to its low hardware specifications.So the message you got from  your network provider about galaxy y android os upgrade is a fake one because there is nothing like android 2.4.1 and Samsung has not made any official comments about galaxy y upgrade after a one time upgrade to android 2.3.6.

Due to great success of this device most users are asking for upgrading galaxy y to android 4.0 but hardware limitation is a bottleneck for this phone.So Samsung  has released galaxy young with android 4.1 jellybean out of the box which is an indication that galaxy y will not get any firmware updates further,but it may get some minor updates for bug fixes if they occur.

Minor Official Update For Galaxy Y
However Samsung rolled out a minor update for galaxy y which is GINGERBREAD.DDMD1.You can update your galaxy y with samsung kies.This new update just contains some bug fixes and there is nothing new in the new firmware.

Android version : 2.3.6
Baseband version : S5360DDMD1
Kernel version :
build number : GINGERBREAD.DDMD1

The above firmware details is the latest android version for galaxy y s5360. Also the DDMD1 firmware has various bugs in it that you can check here
