Well I think I'll brave it! The only thing putting me off is the inability to change to a different ROM afterwards but I'm sure someone will sort that out. If all goes wrong and I'm stuck with it and Tomtom won't work then I'll swap it with my wifes as she doesn't use tomtom

In my experience, as long as your device is IMEI unlocked then just run the update as normal. I have switched between so many ROM's. Ultimately gone back to OrangeUK 4.1.1.4 as I wanted a working TT4, and can live without WMP10.

Updated it, TTM5 works, allthough getting it to "see" my RBT1000 GPS proved to be a bit more difficult than with the previous ROM/and TTM4 (problems could well be with TTM5).

Only problems are not able to send MMS(??!!) and having that annoying cleartype...

But TTM 4 and 5 do work...

So let me get this straight, receiving MMS works, only sending doesn't work?

Has anyone managed to send out using this firmware?

Yes, I can send as well as receive MMS with this firmware - but I had problem receiving (but not sending) MMS with the older french Orange ROM.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Just an update, for some reason sending MMS is working... (when orange tells you it will take 30 minutes for the system to accept MMS from your phone, it takes 2 days before it actually works)

So all works, TTM and MMS, now still have to get rid of that damn cleartype

Great guide.

Would I be correct in assuming that the new QTek 8020 ROM would be a better match for phones with a joystick - SP3i, XPhone II, SDA?

http://www.qtek.nu/files/Qtek8020_26_SKU3%20nordic.zip

Anyone tried it yet?

I did also receive the same message DATA CRASHES

My phone has already been unlocked so I did not have a problem getting back to the Orange ROM, nevertheless its strange why the QTEK rom won't operate correctly.

Any ideas?

I've just installed the Qtek 8020 ROM on my SP3i, had to do the deletion of operator information as per the start of the thread to get it to go on though.

All appears to be working ok so far.

Well, with help of some forums all around the world I finally got to flash an older firmware back. Not that I had any problems; TomTom5 works great using 3 different BT GPS modules. But I forgot to backup my Dutch T9 dll so I wanted to revert. The trick with TomTom is 2 way: At first, when pairing your GPS module, do NOT bind an outgoing COM-port on it, TomTom does this for you. If you bind a com-port yourself (apart from the default outgoing COMport (6 in my case)) TomTom cannot open an additional port to the GPS module and will refuse to work.

At second, when having TomTom installed on your SD and applying a new firmware, everything on your phone will be deleted ofcourse. TomTom REQUIRES the \storage\My Documents\TomTom folder to exist, and there MUST be a file inside! It doesn't matter even if you put a music file in there, but there MUST be a file in there. If not, you will not get past the 'warning' screen of TomTom. This is true for both legal and 'patched' versions of TomTom. Reinstalling TomTom from the original CD ofcourse fixes this...

Now for going back to older firmware:

first go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/nbftools/ and get version 0.3 of the NBFTools.

then go to http://arisme.free.fr/TyphoonNBFTools/ and get the NBFTools remote client

grab http://rataplan.ath.cx/ResetRAPIPolicy.zip

and get http://web.orange.co.uk/yourphone/spvc500/...l?id=sm_1137635,

Ok, you've probably already noticed it's not your average firmware upgrade with all those tools :D Here goes some:

- unzip/unrar all downloaded files.

- connect using USB and make sure your ActiveSync connection is working (you don't need to register your phone, but you must be connected)

- copy the TyphoonNBFTools.dll file to the ROOT of your phone (not in Storage or on your SD, REALLY the ROOT)

- install cert.cab on your phone to get the required certificate

- copy the resetrapipolicy file on your phone or SD and run it (it seems to do nothing but it does)

- run the TyphoonNBFTools on your PC. If the titlebar does not say 'emergency flash available' you made a mistake somewhere.

- Now it's time to use the orange rom. You could use Winrar to extract the RUU_typho_v1.1.1.91_v4.1.1.4OrangeUK_S.nbf file, OR you can just run the setup until the screen which shows the phone pops up, browse to 'c:\documents and settings\\local settings\temp dir, there should be a folder named pftxx.x which contains the files. Copy the nbf file to your desktop or another location.

- Within the NBFTools click 'file --> open' and open the just saved NBF file.

- I'm not sure if this step is required for the SPL flash, but I changed model name to QTEK 8020 and I erased the operator field. Can be done through the 'edit header data menu. Be sure to do a recalculation of the hash, even if the tool reports it has already recalculated one.

- Now right-click on the SPL in the bottom window and click 'emergency flash'. There will first be a test before the actual flash is done. If the test fails, do NOT even try to flash or your phone will NEVER boot again.

- After the flash is done, just reboot your phone. It acts like normal but now has an older boot-loader.

- That it! Now you can use your original updates, even the older ones, to flash your phone!

You might even want to use NBFTools again if you want to flash a rom which was not intended for your specific phone model, but that is described in the start-port of this thread.

Any questions? Feel free to ask! (but from friday I will be on holidays for 2 weeks ;))

Any ideas on how to get the genie sim card settings to work with gprs and mms on this rom? I've just upgraded my girlfriends phone and she has the genie sim. I've been through loads of posts and seen the first page of this thread but still no joy. Any advice would be great

Cheers

Rob

Got a problem, used the spv-developers simunlock service and then installed the qtek rom as I was tired of waiting for the big O to release the UK version of the update.

As its now here I want to install it but get the following error message: Error [296]: Upgrade Only. This NBF file cannot be used for your smartphone. Please get a newer NBF file.

So I thought I would try to go back to the old rom in order to do a standard upgrade using your instructions below. The problem I have is that I can't get the NBFtools to show 'emergancy flash' in the title bar and therefore am stuck.

Please let me know if I am doing something wrong.

Now for going back to older firmware:

- copy the resetrapipolicy file on your phone or SD and run it (it seems to do nothing but it does)

check those steps... again, it needs to be in the ROOT of your smartphone, that means in the same 'folder' as where you see the 'profiles, storage, storage card, teno and windows' folders. I'm not sure wheter the cert.cab is needed on unlocked phones. Mine IS unlocked however, but I did install the cert.cab anyway. I ran the resetrapipolicy several times as it seems to do noting. Maybe you should run it a few times before starting NBFtools.

If you need more help or if it's still not working, post your results. Are you sure you are using the correct version of NBFTools? I used 0.3.

No, you don't need to copy the TyphoonNBFTools.dll to your phone, but instead copy it into the same directory where TyphoonNBFTools is on your PC. this should solve your problem. BTW to avoid confusion it's not "emergency flash available" but "immediate flash available" that will appear on the title bar. see attached word document for instructions with screenshots. enjoy :)
