Im just consolidating messages I have left in other topics because its nothing short of a bitch to find, install and configure a russian qtek 8200 rom for English use on a t-mobile sdaII or spv c550 for instance.
You will need activesync, 8200 Qtek ROM, Regedit, Mobile Registry Editor and SPV Services. I will tell you where to get them all from so dont worry about them right now.
To flash the phone you will have to CID unlock the phone. To CID unlock the phone you will have to install cert.cab and use SPV Services. But you will have to application unlock the phone to install cert.cab
1. Application Unlock
Download and install ActiveSync
Make sure its open and has connected to your phone.
Using Explore in ActiveSync copy the regedit file to \storage\windows\startmenu
Then on your phone Press start and open regedit which will appear in the list. If it doesnt appear just open a folder in the Start menu and then naviagte back to regedit in the first menu.
and press values.
Open 00001001 and change the value data to 1
Do the same for 00001005 but change the value data to 40.
2. CID Unlock
Now download SPV Services. Its a simple google.
Once you have downloaded and extracted the SPV Services folder copy the cert.cab to your phone, just copy it to \storage.
On your phone press Start and then System Management (or Accessories) and open File Manager. Click on storage then change it to list view. You should see cert.cab in the list. Click on it and install it.
Once this is done make sure activesync is connected and open SPVServices from within the SPV Services folder you downloaded. Then click on CID Unlock on the left. I cant remember what screens you should see but it was quite straight forward.
Once you have CID unlocked your phone you can now install the rom.
3. Installing the ROM
I cant post a link to the qtek 8200 russian rom but its is there somewhere!
Try searching for.....
Its on a forum and hosted via ftp.
Make sure activesync is connected and your phone is turned on as normal (you dont need to be in the boot screen)
Simply double click on the rom you downloaded and follow the instructions.
Once the flash is done you will have russian phone!
4. Make your phone English!
Press Start, then press 8 (for settings, its the only folder in the first screen of the start menu... just in case its not 8!), then press 0 and then 5 (Regional Settings)
Change the top menu to UK English and reboot the phone. I then went back to Regional Settings and set the locale to UK too. Reboot the phone again.
It should now be in English.
5. Make the Text Input English.
The text fields (ie. anywhere you enter text) will still use Russian characters.
Download and install this program.... MobileRegistryEditor
It allows to to edit your phones registry from your pc.
Open the Mobile Registry Editor program and make these changes. You are best off deleting the other registry entries. These are the only ones you need.
0409 with t9englis.dll string and I deleted the rest.
HKLM\t9 input method
current ime as 400
current ldb as 0409
default alpha ldb as 0409
HKLM\t9 input method\ime
0400 as \windows\t9aw.dll
HKLM\t9 input method\ime order
0409 as 0400
HKLM\t9 input method\ldbs
0409 as T9Englishldb.dll
I dont know if you need to do something different if you want to use US English language and locale.
That should now leave you with a 100% English Qtek rom.
