Hi,
I have Voda branded omnia i900V. Please help me how to remove all vodafone things(I like to flash with latest ROM). I'm noob and I need detailed instruction how to do this. My software is : PDA:I900XXHJ6/ACHJ2, PHONE:i900BUHJ1. It's unlocked (sim free).
Tks.



It should be easy for you, first change the phone to UK (THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING!!!).

Second Change the version in the phone's registry (from ACHJ2 to XXHG1, XXHH1 or MSHH1)

Go to Samsung Website and take the UK version - enter MSHH1 to access the download page.

Install Samsung Modem and execute the UK firmware.

Also, before flashing, read the forum to learn more about the process - this may kill your phone.

Change the phone to Singapore (see step 1) - backup all your data, including My Storage ... THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING!!!.

Change the version in the phone's registry from MCR03 to DZHH1 (you said in a previous post that you want to flash to DZHJ1).

Execute the update file taken form Samsung and leave it open, then browse to "C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temp\IXP000.TMP\" and copy UPDATE.exe to Desktop.

Hex edit UPDATE.exe - change i900DX to i900DT.

Install Samsung Modem.

Flash the phone using hex edited UPDATE.exe.

Change back to your country. (see step 1).

Also, before flashing, read the forum to learn more about the process - this may kill your phone.

If you want to flash from DXHJ1 to MSHJ1 all you have to do is to follow what i did ... if still get "already the latest version " change the phone version to MSHH1 and try again.

I assume that you've done all the steps since you get "already the latest version".

Even better I dont even need to change the rom to UK. But can you guide me how to get 3UK settings on the phone. Because I am owner of HTC TOUCH DIAMOND, PRO and HD they all auto pick up the priovider settings NOT THE OMNIA. I used to HAVE the offcial vodafone rom but it did not pickup that is why I upgraded. I actually like the omnia but it seems like i will have to sell it if i cant find the settings. I have tried manually but I have NO idea what I am doing. SORRY FOR BIGGGG POST

After hours of searching trough the internet i managed to figure out how to flash any ROM from Samsung official website http://www.samsungmo...omnia/index.jsp

One week ago i flashed my Omnia to DXHJ1 (main benefit is the battery lifetime - 4 days using only phone vs. 2 days on XXHI1), yesterday i found the new ROM for UK MSHJ1 and i was curious about the changes so I've decided to try it.


How to solve "Incorrect software version!"

First check ROM version, you'll need it later (To find your Omnia version, please click Start Posted Image Settings Posted Image System tab Posted Image Your version of Omnia menu. )

My first ROM was: PDA : i900XXHI1/XFHI1 - PHONE i900XXHH9
Second: PDA : i900DXHJ1/DXHJ1 - PHONE i900DXHJ1
Third: PDA : i900XXHJ4/MSHJ1 - PHONE i900XXHI5

What i did to change it from DXHJ1/DXHJ1 to XXHJ4/MSHJ1:

1. Change the phone to UK (thanks to Paul's post - http://www.modaco.co...re-version-fix/ )

  • Press the 'dial' key to the left of the optical pad to bring up the dialer
  • With the onscreen keypad input *#1546792*#
  • Select 'Preconfiguration'
  • Enter code *#81230*# and select OK
  • Select 'UK', with the default Operator
  • Accept this, DEVICE WILL HARD RESET
  • Run update, and all should be well.
2. Change the version in the phone's registry (from DXHJ1 to XXHG1 - to be inferior to XXHJ1, otherwise you'll get ".. already the latest version ..." message)

- upload regedit.exe to phone
- change HKCU\Control Panel\Version\CustomVersion from DXHJ1 to XXHG1

3. Execute the update file taken form Samsung and leave it open, then browse to "C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temp\IXP000.TMP\" and copy UPDATE.exe to Desktop.

4. Hex edit UPDATE.exe. (i've used xvi32)

- open file in editor
- scroll to the end of file
- search up (or from end) for i900XX
- change the second result to i900DX
- save and exit

5. Flash the phone using hex edited UPDATE.exe B) .

6. Change back to your country. (see step 1).

BACKUP YOUR PHONE BEFORE FLASHING. "MY STORAGE" WILL BE FORMATED!!! SO COPY ALL YOUR FILES BEFORE FLASHING.

BE SURE YOU HAVE SAMSUNG MODEM INSTALLED.


I used this method to go back to DXHJ1 because i didn't like the UK version (Network cannot be dragged to widget's bar, Opera build was older).

Flashing may kill the phone. USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!


The file for the UK official ROM is now called 'i900MSHJ1_updater_xp'. I could not find the values to change using Hex Editor. Could you help me out please.

There is no IXP000.TMP folder in my system. Is it because I saved the updater file directly into a folder?.

Hi there,

I currently have the following firmware: PDA: i900DXHJ1/DXHJ1 Phone: i900DXHJ1. I am trying to upgrade to the Vodafone branded firmware (ACHJ2) but it keeps saying incorrect software version. I have followed the steps above but with no luck. Can someone please advise on what other steps I can take? Thanks for your help in advance.
