Install Android 4.4.2 CM11 Kit-Kat
Samsung’s Galaxy Y is a low-end device and it doesn’t look like Samsung is even thinking about updating it to Android KitKat. The last update it did get was to Android 2.3.6.
If you want to update your Galaxy Y S6310, you can use our guide in installing a custom ROM that will let it run on Android 4.4.2 CM11.
Before we begin, make sure of the following:
- Your battery is charged to around 60-80 percent.
- You have backed up important messages, contacts and call logs.

NOTE: Your device model should be GT-S6310. If it is not, do not use this guide.
- You have enabled USB debugging mode

Note: The methods needed to flash custom recoveries, roms and to root your phone can result in bricking your device. Rooting your device will also void the warranty and it will no longer be eligible for free device services from manufacturers or warranty providers. Be responsible and keep these in mind before you decide to proceed on your own responsibility. In case a mishap occurs, we or the device manufacturers should never be held responsible.
