Awha?

I flashed it about three weeks ago, when it was released.

Not much of a change from a functional pov. Still don't have the SIM contacts filter option, still won't auto-detach data connection. Did get me rid of the vodafone branding, though and got the carousel home screen back.

Hi! I have installed Edit: Please don't link to ROMs hosted on rapidshare soft and it works great. No more hangs while answering the phone, longer battery life. This one is great at last.

A quote from GSMHosting forii:

"I600U WM6.0 code name Xbow, i have that at 1.5 months ago. I600 can flash to I600 WM6.0 easily, but that file is not complete bugs free, so don't ask for it please."

That's from Winvista, the same guy who let the i600XXGD1 (and other recent firmwares) loose.

New European upgrade "no-brand" firmware Edit: Please don't link to ROMs hosted on rapidshare!!

For upgrade and resolve all previous problem need to install "BlackJack Modem Driver".

This software is included in new firmware.

(Hope to give you soon firmware with Windows Mobile 6!!)

Enjoy it!

HumaX :rolleyes:

The i600XXGC6 works perfectly. However when I try to install the i600XXGD1, I get some kind of region error. I installed the modem driver succesfully, and the update programm says (after a while of trying different ports) that it finds the modem. Then the update aborts with the aforementioned region error (wrong region or something). Phone bought in Germany, previous ROM was i600XXGC4.

Now I have XXGD1 for EBOOT/PDA and XXGC6 for PHONE. I really want XXGD1 for PHONE, too.

Any ideas?

Delete modem driver

reboot

reinstall modem driver

reboot

connect phone and deactive active sync

flash again with XXGD1

I need some advice. My i600 got ROM i600BVGC3. I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere, so I wonder if it's recent or if I can go for the newest, which I assume is i600XXGD1.

Thanks.

BV = operator (Vodafone?)

G = ? (GSM?)

C3 = version

C3 < D1

Hi All,

For my i600 which has flashed with i607 rom, actually I won't able to use its user interface within the OS, because it will power off automatically and I cannot prevent it to auto power off. Will there any key combination to stop it auto power off?

I heard that there is a debuy mode on it. By pressing "Power" + "Left soft key" + "Camera" keys to launch the debug mode. It will prompt to press 0 or Space to enter configuration. Do you know how to make use of this debug mode to save the phone?

Thank you very very much!!!

Best Regards,

Martin Wong

Did you find a solution ?

FEEL FREE TO TRY!!

For people who has flashed i600 with i607 ROM

(1) Use a samsung D820 cable with Serial Port and plug into your i600

(2) Connect the cable to your PC's serial port (probably COM1)

(3) Install the Samsung Blackjack Modem Driver

(4) Uncheck the "Allow USB connections" in Active Sync option and select COM1 in "Allow connections in one of the followings"

(5) Let Active Sync to search for the i600 and wait for "Connected"

(6) Run the i600 firmware update program as usual.

P.S. please let me know the result.
