It’s been a while since Samsung released a new Galaxy S Duos updateThese cool phones were originally released in 2012, which means Samsung’s official support for them ended about a year and a half later, since their policy is to only support phones for a maximum of 18 months.

That’s a pretty short lifespan for an expensive piece of tech. But you’re in luck, because Updato.com maintains an exhaustive repository of the latest firmware and ROMs for most every phone imaginable.

Perhaps you already know the importance of keeping your firmware up to date.  Or maybe you’re just coveting the thought of running the latest version of Android on your trusty Duos. Either way, if you’re looking to update your Galaxy S Duos, you’ve come to the right place.

Updato.com has two methods available to perform your update:

 1) Update via Samsung Kies

 Samsung’s official method for updating your Duos uses a little program called Kies.

Just install it on your computer, then use the program to search for the latest updates and install them.

Before you begin, be sure to check out our nifty tutorial on how to use Samsung Kies. Feel free to post any comments or questions below if you need a helping hand.

2) Update manually with Odin

 If you’re feeling adventurous, or are the brave geeky type, Odin allows you to update Galaxy S Duos to add custom ROMs, root or unroot your phone, or to reset your Duos back to the original ROM.

While this method is typically best suited to experienced users, we’ve done our best to simplify the process for everyone. Check out our awesome, easy-peasy tutorial on how to use Odin here.

How to get the latest firmware for your Samsung Galaxy S Duos update

An important part of rocking an updated Duos is making sure you have the latest firmware.

The first thing you should do is verify which version of Android you’re currently using.

To do that, grab that trusty Duos and go to Settings > About Device and check the Build Number.  It should look something like this: S7562LVJAMH1 (the current build number of your firmware).

Next, visit our Galaxy S Duos GT-S7562 OS Library to find the latest firmware releases for your country or region. If the build numbers on the list match the one you’re using, then you’ve already got the latest firmware for your Duos and no update is required (look at you, all up-to-date and whatnot!).

If not, use Samsung Kies to install the latest Galaxy S Duos update (see Step 1 above).

Th-th-th-that’s all folks! However, if you’re using a different device or model phone, be sure to visit Updato’s comprehensive OS Library to see if any additional updates are available.

  9. Hi,
    Today I have downloaded KIES application to update my Samsung ( GT-S752 ) phone which was purchased 18 months back. I understand that there is no requirement of firmware updation, as my current version in the phone and available version are same. Pls confirm my understanding.

    I would like to inform you that my phone is working very slow. Last software updation has been done 6 months back. Whenever it is required, it is chargeable also it is time consuming. Pls advise whether I can do software updation for my phone to improve the performance. If so, please explain how to do it.
    Thanks
