Stock Firmware Downloads

OK...since many of us bricked their devices...it would be awesome to have a list of original stock roms for flashing!

Example...my phone earpiece doesn`t work anymore...but i can`t go to orange for replacing because my phone is rooted and all the "Orange" s*** uninstalled.So...i would like to reflash orange stock rom for waranty,But i can`t find nowhere for downloading.Let`s make this topic for original stock firmware downloads:D

Or someone with the stock Orange RO firmware(unmodified,unrooted)can extract via adb the /system folder and make a .zip from it.

Hi,

Delete /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.config folder to get back to stock. It will be created again based on /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.config.

What's your issue exactly ? Cause this file may not have bad effect on wifi connection.

PS : Providing a logcat while trying to activate wifi could help a lot.

here is the logcat. :) the thing is i could replace it based on the warranty but this sample really works better then other s500 i had and i first want to see if there is anything i can do make it fully functional and keep it. sorry for bothering and thank you. my issues is i cannot connect at all. meaning i turn on the wifi from settings and it says wifi turning on while it is still off and i cannot scan for wifi networks. miriam has the old issue that he can connect to the wifi but sadly it only shows the wifi icon but the actual connection is not working (i had that issue too before i f****d up my phone, and i could connect and have working wifi for some networks or just connect but no working network on others)

Hi,

The problem is: I need to connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi. On the 3G mobile data connection, we can browse the Internet, navigate in Chrome, use Facebook, Google Play and so on. But, when Wi-Fi is ON, I cannot do that. The phone finds the wireless network, connects to it and the signal is very strong, appears to be connected (My wireless connection is Open, works like a charm on my laptop and on my brothers Galaxy SII). Even other Wi-Fi connections can be seen as available. But I cannot browse the Internet, navigate in Chrome, use Facebook and Google Play.

My /data folder is empty. SHould I change this file /system/etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.config with the one I can find on your website? How can I provide a log?

You should create a new topic and provide more informations. (Current ROM, Did you flashed something, did you already had this issue when you get the phone...)

Also i need kernel log ("dmesg" command) to know why the driver can't be loaded.

@renzs: i don't think the version matters as long as the SKU is the same... you should be able to flash any version of WW_GEN1.

But just to be sure ask around

You must unzip the file vache provides.

Inside you'll find a .txt file and update.zip.

Extract update.zip to the micro SD card and then flash update.zip

Hey guys. Where can I find the stock Orange RO ics firmware? Not the update.zip. I'm looking for a firmware that can be flashed using the ADT. Thanks

pai daca e rutat porneste cwm asa cum iti explica vache aici : http://www.modaco.co...-6015-for-s500/ , adica downloadezi imaginea si dai comanda fastboot -i 0x0502 boot CWM-6.0.1.5_S500.img

Cand ai intrat in cwm faci factory reset , wipe dalvik cache , wipe cache si wipe battery stats.

dupa aia ii dai install zip from sd ... pe card tre sa ai imaginea update.zip extrasa din arhiva din link-ul dat de vache ... http://vache-android...EMEA_ORGROD.zip ... si apoi ii dai restart system ... si il lasi sa isi faca el tot ce trebe si cand porneste e stock
