Below is the guide on how to setup 32bit Vista / Win7 for flashing. Do not ask me re 64bit as I couldn't find any 64bit driver for v5 (Samsung MITS USB Sync). Do provide if you have so we can test it.

Thanks to VyRuz nd jazzz0904 for posting the results.

Note: Use Octan Downloader v1.91

1. At WMDC, click on Mobile Device Setting, and set connection settings as below:

3. Connect ur phone to ur PC or laptop and it will start to install the Samsung MITs USB Sync driver.

Important Note also; After connecting ur phone via usb cable, verify the "Samsung MITs USB Sync" driver version again to make sure it is version 5, else gotta reinstall it.

Hi Guys,

At ur own risk.

As usual, need to install all the samsung drivers and make sure "Samsung MITs USB Sync" is version 5.



Right click on Octans Downloader, and select Windows XP (service pack 3) as in the pic.

Are u using 32 bit or 64bit OS? Cos the driver should be for 32bit OS only. I tried aso to update my driver, it tells me that it is not a 64bit driver hence I cannot proceed to update to version 5. After some googling, was still unable to find any 64 bit drivers.

Refer to 1st post for guide.

Sorry, was unable to verify after step 7 as I using 64bit Windows 7. Hope this helps. :)

All the steps work for Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit, with included drivers by you.

Will test flashing and report.

All

It may also be a good idea to select another option in the Compatibility window...

Select the Run this progam in compatibility mode for:
Windows XP (Service Pack 2 (or 3))

AND

... the last checkbox under the Privilege Level option

Select "Run this program as an Administrator"
That should assist with running on Win7

Sorry for my previous statement. It actually works on both Ocans versions.
Only thing is that you need to connect the usb cable many times as there seems to be a problem
which can be notice under mobile devices in Windows Device Manager for the Samsung MITs USB Sync.

I cannot seem to Flash to a ROM :)

Followed all instructions, but all that OCTANS says is

[Setup] Windows XP
[Setup] Download Ram Size :41777920 bytes,(39 MB)
OnDeviceChange \\?\USB#VID_04E8&PID_6619#5&2637b603&0&1#{25dbce51-6c8f-4a72-8a6d-b54c2b4fc835}

Nothing on my Omnia screen except a battery charge icon

That's the problem, you got to re-connect many times till you are able to "Start downloading".
Did you miss:
Select the Run this progam in compatibility mode for:
Windows XP (Service Pack 2 (or 3))

AND

... the last checkbox under the Privilege Level option

Select "Run this program as an Administrator"
I had done that many times.
