How can I identify my correct ODIN file?
I cannot identify the correct ODIN file for my phone.
This is a common problem of the Samsung Galaxy GT S5360, as users stuck in a boot loop are unable to access the phone in order to identify their firmware. In this case, the only thing you can do is take it to a repair shop, or locate the firmware specific to your country or region, and attempt to install that firmware to the device. More on this is discussed later in this Q&A. Please reference that section for more information on the steps you can take to attempt to resolve this problem.
How can I boot my Galaxy Y Young?
When I boot it, it restarts, what can I do now?
Your Samsung Galaxy Y is stuck in what is known as a boot loop. You can try to perform a Factory Reset of the phone again, but due to the boot loop, it's unlikely this will succeed. Instead, to correct this, you'll need to download and install ODIN, and then the correct firmware to be able to flash your device. Unfortunately, as your phone is already in a boot loop, there is no way for you to identify the firmware, and there are many.
Using the wrong firmware can soft brick your phone (meaning that you won't be able to connect to it or otherwise update it). In most cases it is best to take your phone to an authorized service center or repair shop. However, if you choose to do it yourself, you can usually identify the firmware specific to your country or region, and try to install that to your phone.
