      Hi Imman Vel, we understand that it isn’t working for your device. But its pretty common for Some firmware to not work upon. So sit back and just wait for another update to come for your device.

    • Roque

      When everything happens smoothly, i can’t understand why isn’t anything happening. However, wait for some other update to come for Galaxy Y duos. We will let you know about it.

      • Roque

        Hi shubham. Is your device rooted? Or is it running on Stock Rom?

        • Shubham

          Hi Roque.
          My device is rooted and running on Custom Rom with Custom Kernel..

          • Roque

            May be that’s a reason for which this problem occurs. I will suggest you to port back to your previous Rom and then install this Rom on your device.

  • parth

  • Savigun

    • Roque
