    Your phone is currently running on a really old firmware. Froyo is what my Samsung smartphone came with as well. Although for old devices, Samsung has stopped releasing further updates I'm sure your phone can atleast be updated to Gingerbread.

    Froyo firmware: 2.2
    Gingerbread firmware: 2.3

    You can either head onto your Android settings and update over the air using a WiFi connection or do it manually using Odin software. Go for the second option only if you are aware of the flashing process.

    No rooting is required for the above process, however if you root your device you would also be able to experience Jelly Bean 4.x (unofficial) on your Samsung Galaxy Pop.

    I feel it is better off not to update your phone. You can manually install latest firmware but I'm sure you won't find step by step tutorial for it. Most of the tutorial is available only for high end phones. Also if you update by your own, you will lose contacts, data, and app in your phone memory.

    Firmware available in internet may have lot of bugs. There are chances that you phone performance may get degrades. Considering all the facts, staying in old version is a wise choice.

    I disagree, Gingerbread version 2.3 is officially available for Samsung Galaxy Mini Pop S5570. Gingerbread is a far better firmware even for low end 600 MHz processor based smartphones when compared to Froyo.

    You will not lose any data if you update it officially using Samsung Kies software. However, if you decide to manually update it using the Odin software, you would need to backup your data before you flash your device. Backing up all your contacts, sms, pictures, videos and songs is extremely easy and you can always restore them once you have the updated firmware running.

    The Gingerbread firmware available for this device is officially released by Samsung and will not have any bugs. However, if you download a third-party firmware and flash it, you may encounter bugs. I suggest updating and running the latest firmware available for your device.
