However, I have a USA (Verizon Wireless) Omnia.

ROM version: S:i910.10 V.BJ28.2027

Modem Version: S:i910.10 V.BJ18

H/W Version: H:i910.10 V.Q

PRL Version: P:51143 E:00004

Regular readers will know that the Samsung i900 Omnia is my 'device of choice' at the moment (tough call, there are a LOT of desirable devices out there atm!), and now courtesy of kingmobile, i've just downloaded and installed the OFFICIAL DXHH1 update from here, which has recently been released to Samsung service centres! ;)

Flashing this update gives you...

  • DXHH1/DXHH1 PDA
  • DXHH1 ROM


    HH1 itself brings a host of improvements over the officially released HG4 build, including..

    • More haptic feedback (including for the XT9 keyboards! Hurrah!)
    • New Today widgets
    • More screen rotation animations
    • Updated core OS and application versions
    • 'Connected Home' DLNA server
    • Updated Opera Mobile (build 1957)
    • Reduced memory usage over released HG4 by way of omission of Chinese input methods
    • and probably more i've forgotten... :)

    The update process is simple (but of course, not without danger (hey, I test these things so you don't have to) :) ... if you can't handle the fact your phone could be toasted, get the update done by a service centre! Flash at your own risk!). Simply find a XP machine, install this modem driver (important!), extract and run the update EXE, connect your FULLY CHARGED Omnia and press the reset pin. Hit 'Start' in the application when it becomes available and then sit back and don't touch ANYTHING :D

    Other leaked (non English) ROMs show that Samsung seem to be continuing agressive development of the Omnia, with additions such as new TouchWiz widgets and additional applications (such as Samsung's 'LifeDiary') making an appearance in later ROM versions. It is expected that HH1 will not see a full public release, with Samsung instead choosing a forthcoming version with additional enhancements to make widely available.

I am getting the same problem. I just got my phone in the US, from Verizon. I think the problem is that Activesync is not connecting. Since earlier posts have stated that activesync has to be running to complete the update, how do you get activesync running during the update process? When i do the soft reset (to start the update), activesync will not connect.

Also, even after the above error, doing a soft reset will boot up the phone, but it wont connect to verizon's network. when going into the pone app, i get an error message that it could only make emergency calls because there is no sim card installed. Will this update work for GSM carriers?

(UPDATE): i have heard that the update that we are trying to do through this thread will brick the phone, at least on vzw....does anyone have the Verizon ROM that they can share? i need to restore to factory settings?????????????

Judging on your post, you have the Verizon omnia..... Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the i910; not the i900. The two phones are comparable, but the roms certainly aren't compatible. You need a rom for the i910 to try to fix this. :S

Sorry for being the bearer of bad tidings. B)

BTW... : I don't have access to an XP PC. What's wrong with updating via vista? Plus, can someone give a link to the vista modem driver, or direct me to where it is. I found the xp driver (obviously: in main post :( ). Thanks guys.

And great job on all this by the way.

Hi Paul:

Tried to do the update, however received the error "Port Create Faile" and "Download Failed"

Can you provide me a hint how to proceed?

Now my version of the PDA shows the DXHH1, but the phone one still shows the old one: DXHJ1. The phone is working normaly.

Thank´s in advance.

Hi Paul,

seems I am the only one with unsuccessful update

-runing XP

-installed active sync

-installed modem drivers

-rebooted and started flashing ...

Everything went smooth up to trying 'port 9' (i think... ) then the progress bar on omnia stopped.

The process finished normally with end message Job Finished.

it rebooted and after 30 min it's still with black screen ... nothing ...

any idea?

thank you .

For all those having 'Port Create retry' after successful

PDA image download, this is due to your ActiveSync being

in the taskbar. Please press CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring up the

Windows Task MAnager, click on Processes Tab and find

wcescomm.exe under the Image Name heading. Press End Process

and run your mouse over where the ActiveSyn icon in the

taskbar, this will remove the icon and confirm that the

process has ended. You should find that the switch from

USB to phone will now detect the phone and the Phone part

upgrade will complete successfully.

The reason this happens makes sense because when you switch your

phone from USB to Phone ActiveSync will immediately detect the

phone modem and grab it, therefore the the update program will

then not find it and will be unable to complete.

Hope this helps the few people here who have posted about the problem.

Thank you for the suggestion, but I still get the 'Port Create Failed' error after the 25 attempts all fail. Are there any other suggestions for fixing this issue?

Sorry guy's, here is my idea about the whole story flashing my Omnia from german to english. So many warnings and problems, like the need of Windows XP drivers (nothing for Windows7) and then risking to have a useless piece of junk. I can read german, since i am born german, what bothers me more is like compared to my N97, Software for Wireless access, which works excellent on my N97.

Why do i have to enable WIFI every time i need a connection to my router on the Omnia I900, could it not be always on. As good as it looks, but for my self never again a Windows Mobile Phone. My wife wanted it, but she speaks only english.

My present location is the Philippines, so no chance at all to sell it no one speaks german here.

Thank you to Paul, you doing a great job here !

I have Omnia i900 6.1; pda i900DXHH1/DXHH1, phone i900XXHG5. I have been trying to upgrade to 6.5 but all to no avail. I have read the procedure and followed them, but it still did not work.

First I installed samsung modem for vista and them WMDC. I downloaded i900DXIA5_vista.exe, (277MB) from a link I found in the forum. I used i900executor as directed and loaded the pda, etc and click detect. nothing happened. I put off the phone. Grandprix detected that phone is not available. I put it on again. WMDC confirms phone is connected to vista but grandprix is not downloading. ssubsequent restarting results in the same thing. Is there anything I have not done? Is my phone version not compatible with d rom? I downloaded another rom DXID1, same story. pls how do I flash this phone? these are the links I downloaded the roms for reference
