Just thought I would create a step by step guide to help impart the process I followed to get my Qtek 8310 to run the newly released official AKU2 ROM. The upgrade initially came up with "Invalid Vendor ID" so I had to follow a few more steps from multiple forums to get around it - I have just aggregated those steps here.
This is NOT an official or guaranteed method to install your Qtek ROM - I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE OR PROBLEMS YOU MAY EXPERIENCE.
1. Get the latest ROM for the Qtek 8310 by logging in to http://www.myqtek.com to get it.
2. Reset device to manufacturer defaults before attempting to install the update - this should reduce the likelyness of problems occuring. A utility for doing this is under "Accessories > Clear Storage".
NOTE: you will lose all your data if it is not on the Storage Card.
3. Wait for the phone to rebuild to manufacturer defaults and try the Qtek ROM upgrade (see step 13 & 14).
IF you get "Invalid Vendor ID", like I did because "I'm not a brightpoint customer :blink:", then you will have to change the phone's identifier lock or 'CID'.
NOTE: Changing the CID will invalidate your warranty.
4. To change CID first get RegEditSTG.zip from the attached files link at the bottom of this post. Connect up your phone to the PC and copy the ZIP FILE not the EXE to your phone and unzip the exe on the phone.
5. Run the regeditstg exe file (once unzipped) change the following keys to APPLICATION UNLOCK your phone. This is required to be able to install the .CAB file to enable you to change the CID.
Navigate to: HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies\
Click "Values" soft-key
Change "00001001" value to 1 (decimal) (recovery note: default is 2)
Change "00001005" value to 40 (decimal) (recovery note: default is 16)
Change "00001017" value to 144 (decimal) (recovery note: default is 128)
Add new value "0000101b" and assign it DWORD = 1 (decimal)
Reboot your device.
These changes now mean you can run unsigned software such as the CID changing software.
6. Download SPV-Services from here. Thanks to the guys from SPV-Developers!
7. Unzip the file on your PC. Copy the Cert.CAB file to your mobile device. Then use the phone's file manager to browse to the file and then run it. It should flash up a warning about being unsigned - just click "yes" and let it install.
8. Reboot the phone again.
9. With the phone still connected to the PC and on, run the SPV-Services.exe from the SPV-Services zip file you should have unzipped on your PC.
This will load the SPV-Services program.
NOTE: This program does not work well with IE 7 or alternative browsers, try to make sure your PC has IE6 if possible!
10. Click "CID Tool (Alpha)" on the left hand side - it will attempt to read the CID from your Phone. (Mine read it fine without issue following this method...if you have problems then try www.spv-developers.com or this Modaco forum for some help!)
Once it has, copy and paste the CID number that was collected to your PC in a text file to make sure you have a backup for whatever reason.
11. Click the "Set CID to 1111111" button and be patient. Do not switch your phone, restart your computer or unplug the phone!
Changing the CID to this SuperCID your phone able to accept the new Qtek 8310 ROM. As I have said this process will invalidate your warranty.
12. Wait for the process to complete successfully. Reboot the phone.
13. Try the ROM update again, read all the instructions carefully and do not get impatient. My Update got stuck at 93% for like 4 mins before continuing to successfully update.
14. Your Qtek 8310 will have to rebuild itself which is also a slow process but be patient and you should now be upgraded to the latest version ROM.
Hope this helps all those with the Invalid Vendor ID problem despite being paying Qtek Customers!
