Samsung Star Wi fi Firmware Update – S5230W/S5233W

We have recived another firmware upgrade, and this time its for samsung star wi fi S5230W/ S5233W.

One of my friend Arun Sharma told me about it, & I wish to thank him for this great share here. The firmware is of course coming from Darforest, its not our own innovation. The whole procedure of firmware upgrade is same as before.

Here is The New Firmware for Star Wi Fi S5230W/ S5233W

Update: 19/4/2012

Notice : Download Links Are Permanently Removed, We Regret for the Inconvenience. 

Please Backup your files before upgrading.

If anything goes wrong, you can still go to samsung service center for reinstalling old FW.

Disclaimer : This version we have got from a forum. It is not from samsung itself. Samsung also would not recommend you to use this firmware. It may be illegal in many countries.

Try it for your curiosity of developements but ‘ Try it on your own risk .’

      Hii Tejas,
      If you have bought in Feb then yu must have latest firmware I guess. But still if you think its not working properly, then tell service center guy to flash & update firmware. As you are in warranty period you can get it done free.

      Or you can do it by yourself. And try to install proper firmware before doing it.

      Suggestion: Try to do Wi fi connection settings & other things once again & ensure that you are not making any mistake in it. Because I never heard anybody complaining about bugs in Star Wi FI.

      You cant get it anywhere online. You go to Samsung supprt center & tell them to reinstall it, if your phone is under warranty -it will be Free

      Not much. But you can get it by upgrading firmware.. which is tough to do for beginners & I won’t recommend it.
