Omnia II i8000 Flashing ROM Procedure

Hello!

A noob question: how can i tell the difference between a CDMA and GSM version of the ROMs? I know that installing a CDMA rom on to a GSM phone would "kill" it, at least that`s the case on my HTC Diamond :). I live in Romania and i use a GSM version of Omnia 2.

Tks.

how comes you care about it? I thought Omnia2 supports both... in my band selection i have:

Auto/GSM 900/GSM 1800/GSM 850/GSM 1900/WCDMA

or do you mean CDMA2000 which according to Wiki is somehow different? never heard of Omnia2 with CDMA2000... but then again, there is lots of stuff i did not hear about. :P

Hi, it's my first post and sorry for my English. I'm going to flash my Omnia2. My device is ( see 1st sshot). Can I flash with this Octan content ( see 2nd sshot )? Do I have something to fear? Thanks for help.

I think you have to select just one among .nb0 and .mst

Thanks, but what you mean: "... you have to select just one among .nb0 and .mst"? I must select different .Nb0 and .Mst or choose any of the available?

I mean that you have to choose which one to use: .nb0 or .mst (not both together)

Why do you even have them togheter? if you choose a ROM from some of the links in the forum and download it you'll have just a .nb0 or a .mst file (not both).

If you want to install Secany IJ9 rom I think it looks correct

Anyway, at least for your first flashes, I suggest you to read my small guide and use OctansMini here

For J9

here's the following files im able to extract from the Secanny's list above:

CSC_I8000NXXIJ8.CSC

PDA_I8000NXXIJ9_HW_40.MST

Phone_I8000XXIJ4_REV_04.bin

I've filled up OCtans 2.11 using the following:

MultiCSC - CSC_I8000NXXIJ8.CSC

MoviNAND - PDA_I8000NXXIJ9_HW_40.MST

Phone - Phone_I8000XXIJ4_REV_04.bin

From the flash instruction, i should fill up EBoot, MultiCSC, MoviNAND and Phone. But from what i've extracted there's no file for EBoot.

Is it necessary for J9?

Reading from the thread flashing .ebo might brick my omnia - is it correct?

To be safe is it ok to flash to J9 only with the 3 files .CSC , .MST and .BIN?

Really need your help guys before i proceed flashing my phone.

Hello everyone I have a omnia i8000 with:

PDA: I8000NXIIB

CSC: I8000ITVIIB

Telf: I8000XXII7

Win Mobile 6.5 Italian.

They told me that this rom is a bit old, and I wanted to update it then.

Resulted in a step by step guide for Windows Vista?

What ROM do you recommend?

Hello and thanks

I think that you need a ROM in .nb0 format to flash without My Storage. But I read about that somewhere long time ago, so not really sure.

Is anybody can explain in OCTANS :

  1. Mode select "SMD" : "Caution : all RF calibraton and IMEI data will be erased" ??
  2. "Set Priority Bit" (CSC selection) : I have no idea ?
  3. "Skip OS Upgrading by NoviNAND image" : Why would we need to do that ?
  4. "Erase CSC" : I think this is in case of no CSC selected, right ?
  5. "Keep Eboot config" : What is "Eboot config" ?
  6. Preserve device's contents : this one I know and use every time !=> Don't format "my storage" !
  7. What is "Contents" ? .mct format ? Is there a way to add by this field any third party softwares ?
  8. What is the field "Integrated" ? may be a full "image" of all CSC+PDA+EBoot + Phone ?
  9. Skip over waiting for booting completly : self explaination => anderstood !
  10. Start download immediatly : self explaination => anderstood !
.... just to satisfy my curiosity!

When u c the "Phone - | - Computer" pic, try to reflash again with only the phone part, it will boot up again. Phone is not brick yet. I just tried it as my "My Storage" has disappeared.

Can only flash CSC and phone, PDA cannot be flashed as it needs the "My Storage for downloading the firmware to the hidden partition".

so the conclusin is we still able to flash our toy without my storage

eboot

csc

phone

pda (nb0 format) right?

I am missing the internal storage too. Only the pda part can be flashed with a nb0 and NOT mst. I have also flased the new cocked rom, witch also in nb0 format.

The question is, is there any way that we can change the MST pda files to nb0 files?

Or is there someone who can change for us the MST part to nb0 from K5 version, so that we can flash the latest version??

Thank you!

Yes it could be done ... (I'am extrating it for you. Easy job, but need time .... )

I cannot anderstand what you want to do ?

You mean, you don't care your "My Storage" is missing ? I think You'll have to fixe this trouble, right?

I had this trouble a couple of days after I've bought my O².

In my case, I've tried NueStorage without any result, then I flashed with full ROM (I've choosen original one IG4, but I think no matter ?).

Then "My merory" was back !

Do you mean, in OCTANS, you can't flash MST, even you update Eboot/PDA/CSC/Phone (full ROM!) ?

So you could flash the .mst even without "My Storage"?

Some users reported that you can flash just .nb0 while the My Storage is missing
