You need usb term to copy the bootloader from phone to sd/mm card. It's operated through PC.

Yes there is. You need another piece of hardware called a card reader. Let's you transfer winhex image file from PC to sdcard.

thanks...

Yes you need a SD/MMC - card reader/writer to write the bootloader to your SD/MMC card, WinHEX is a program that let you read/copy/edit/write HEX files :idea:

you don't need to change bootloader to do that, just downgrade to SAP 1.3.7.8 ROM then you can apply Qtek ROM 1.50.9.1 and only if you have upgraded to SAP 1.5.0.28 ROM if you already have something lower just run Qtek Update in the canary screen and it should work :)

Puwede mo nang ituloy yung upgrade kung may bootloader 0.99 ka. Only the 1.04 bootloader of smart rom 1.50.28 prevents any unofficial upgrades / downgrades.

To sim unlock your phone, you may want to consider downgrading the ROM to Orange UK 1.3.5. This will downgrade the bootloader to 0.98. By then you can run the sim unlock software. However, it might erase your IPSM too.

i already tried downgrading to 1.3 from 1.5 but always got an error... kaya i think i need to downgrade my bootloader first before i can downgrade to 1.3 then apply the qtek update.

Also if you still have the 1.5 ROM and 1.04 bootloader of Smart you may not be able to downgrade your bootloader to 0.98 :)

normally you don't need to change or downgrade your bootloader if you downgrade to SAP 1.3.7.8 ROM from SAP 1.5.0.28 ROM with 1.04 bootloader but I will gladly help you with the 0.98 bootloader :)

Is this rule applicable also to Smart rom 1.6 with bootloader 1.06? A friend of mine got a "test only" unit with such version and he wants to unlock his phone and change to Qtek rom.

Or can he just directly downgrade to Orange Rom or even Qtek Rom and then saka mag-downgrade ng bootloader 0.98 saka mag-unlock?

thanks.
