Hi Guys,

I hope anyone can help me. I am not new when it comes to windows mobile phones. I am a member of xda-dev for a long time and I've been using HTC phones for a long time now. But this is the first time I am using a samsung one. I am currently flashing my i900-16gb, did all the steps provided in the first post. And I just want to try this ROM first "28244 Normal by steff195". Successfully doe with flashing. Restarted the phone but it is stock on the samsun Omnia black screen...what's going on?

hi, this is my first flashing and I have a problem..

I'm stuck between step 8 and 9... That is, the updater doesn't recognize the phone.. It just says Waiting for device and I can't hit start... everything worked fine up to this step.. activesync recognized and synchronized a couple of times, turned off, on etc.. and then this..
I have windows 7 x64 and virtual PC with XP mode installed, so i thought I'd follow the steps under Windows XP..
I have to click USB - attach device every time I turn phone on or plug USB in.. Is this causing trouble?

Hello,
First off I want to say hello! Second, I am a complete n00b to all this, so I apologize if I am posting in the wrong section.
I was reading this post for beginners and got to step 7 "Run the updater. (Works the same way for Original or Cooked ROMs)" What is the updater? Where do i get it? Have I missed something?

I ran the version checker on my Omnia I900 and it says PDA:i900DXHJ1
Phone: I900DXHJ1

I bought this phone new from newegg a couple years ago and I am not even sure if it can be flashed. Its an unlocked version 16gb Omnia. I would appreciate all the help I can get.

Thank you!

Can Anyone tell me what to do next please. I have omnia i900: PDA -i900DXHH1/DXHH1 and phone - i900XXHG5 and is running WM6.1 pro. I want to upgrade to WM6.5. I have done everything that could have been directed on this forum all to no avail.
First, I installed samsung modem for vista and thenWMDC. I downloaded ROMs: i900DXIDI and it didnot work. I downloaded DXIA5, it did not work. I followed all the procedure highlighted for vista, yet it did not work.
Now the problem is that USDL GrandPrix after loading the various part cannot see the phone. I restart the phone, the same thing. When you put off the phone to restart, it will sense that the phoneis not available and reports same. When the phone is on, WMDC confirms same, the process (upgrading) does not run. Im so sick of this. Any thing undone?
I will appreciate your prompt reply

I've had same problems before... You must flash back to earlier versions... (I particularly used DXHH1) I only flashed the eboot+pda+csc... Then flash to your desired ROM...

Here's the link for DXHH1 >> DXHH1 i900 Omnia


Thank You man! It helped me! After instaling DXHH1 (WM 6.1) i can instal any ROM! Super! I had problem with freesing at 0%

MEN!
NO NEED FOR WINDOWS XP TO FLASH A NEW ROM.
IT'S WORKING LIKE A CHARM IVEN ON WINDOWS 7 X64 (LIKE MINE)
U NEED USDL GRANDPRIX 1.6.4 VISTA , SAMSUNG USB INSTALL AND WINDOWS MOBILE CENTER.
KEEP RESTARTING the phone 'TILL ITS DETECTED, ( SOME TIME MANY RESTARTS) IF NOT JUST REINSTAL ALL SOFTWARE ABOVE EACH ONE A TIME.
AFTER SOME RESSTARTS IT WILL TRY TO INSTAL ADITIONAL SOFTWARE ON PC, AFTER THAT JUST GO FOR IT!
P.S.
AFTER INSTALL GRANDPRIX RUN IT AS ADMINISTRATOR (RIGHT CLICK ON IT AND...)

I'm a complete virgin 'flasher' ....hi

I'm not a techophobe by any means but although the instructions seem simple enough...(I wasn't confused by the jargon at all)..I appear to be missing something.

I did the above and installed these to my PC.....


  • Reboot the PC.
  • After the first 2 steps try to disconnect your Omnia from USB and connect it back on. Repeat it 1-2 times so the PC can recognize the phone.
Now it says to disconnect your omnia after the first 2 steps - so the confusion begins , do I reboot the pc then disconnect the phone or should it be after the first 3 steps??




  • Switch OFF the phone by holding the Power button for ~5 seconds.
  • Run the updater. (Works the same way for Original or Cooked ROMs)
I turned the phone off ( whilst still connected to the pc I assume) .............now the next confusing thing 'run the updater' on my phone I'm assuming ??...and again I assume this is the 'windows updater' ?? this can't be ran while plugged into the pc I know <BR style="mso-special-character: line-break">



  • Switch ON the phone again by holding the Power button.
  • Press START and happy flashing. Do not move your phone or the USB wire as it might fail during flashing.
  • Wait until the updater shows JOB DONE! DO NOT DISCONNECT BEFORE.
  • Disconnect your phone.
  • Leave the phone to reboot 2 times, calibrate screen and finish the start-up procedure.
  • Enjoy the new firmware.
I switch the phone on again but I see no 'start' nor do I progress to the other steps listed??

Any help would be appreciated......I'm no idiot but maybe the instructions aren't idiot proof ;)

cheers guys

C
