Since i'm planning to move to Windows 7, i've tried OCTANS on one of my notebooks (Sony Vaio P90HS) with Win7.
It didn't take long time to figure out working method.


You have to follow guide precisely, otherwise it may not work!

1) download Windows XP x32 driver attached in this post.
2) Turn off your Omnia II
3) connect Omnia II to computer.
4) Go to device management console and update Samsung MITs driver with one you downloaded in (1). Make sure you didn't get error while updating driver.
5) Disconnect Omnia II from computer.
6) Grab any version of OCTANS (newer - better) and using right click menu open properties of OCTANS executable and set compatibility mode to Windows XP Service Pack 3
7) Start OCTANS and follow usual guide to flash your Omnia II.

I've tried it by myself and it's 100% working.
If it's not working for you then you did something wrong. Check my guide again more precisely and correct your mistakes.


For x64 perverts, there is X64 driver attached. Guide is exactly the same, but i didn't test it because i hate to deal with MS signature checks. Only real perverters love Windows x64 and its signature hell :)
X64 driver is not signed, so have a nice sex with WinX64. I know you like it :(

and by the way:

Windows Mobile Device Center will remain functional because Omnia II recognized as 2 different devices: one is when it booted to WM and another when it powered off.
So, if you are not stupid enough to update driver while Omnia II is in WM (many people don't like to read guides carefully), then updated driver won't affect WMDC.

Although it's not necessary, but this is applicable for Vista as well.
OCTANS supports Vista, but very buggy. In XP compatibility mode with XP drivers it works better and doesn't crash on detecting stage.

Unfortunately, the driver won't install on Windows 7 x64 (at least with my setup). Windows complains about the driver not being digitally signed. I guess x64 users are still left out in the cold. :)

Win7 users:

Try unsigned/unproper driver enforcement in boot options. it may work.

I tried to apply this to my Omnia Pro(Qwerty), but Win 7 says: You already have the latest firmware(but then in Dutch) for your device.

I'm glad to say that I have made windows 7 x64 to work on my computer! It is a painful process to go through but it is worth it.. I would like to thanks sorg and deepower for teaching and providing all the help! I will also come out with my simple guide to allow all Win 7 x64 user to enjoy what I'm enjoying right now.

Instructions:
1. Restart your computer. At the boot screen, keep pressing F8 and you will be lead into the boot menu, select disable driver signature enforcement and click ok. (thanks to deepower)

2. Turn off phone, Connect USB cable, Click on Windows Start, click on Devices and printers

3. Select GT I8000, select hardware Tab, click properties, select driver tab.

4. Update Driver, select browse my computer for driver software, Click on 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'

5. Select Have disk, select the directory where you have extracted the x64 driver and install from there. (thanks to sorg for the drivers)

6. After installation, switch on your phone.

7. Ensure your Octans is running in Win XP SP3 and you are good to go. Follow all the flashing ROM steps.

8. Click on Detect, Switch off your phone, the start download will be active. :D

note:
Please restart your computer everytime you need to flash the ROM to disable the signature driver enforcement.

Hi. Very good tutorial. Congratulations.

My o2 have IG6 CSC anda i donwload I8000NXXIJ1 ROM wich comes 3 files:
- CSC_I8000NXXIJ1.CSC
- Eboot_I8000NXXIJ1_HW_40.eb0
- PDA_I8000NXXIJ1_HW_40.MST

I read on this topic (http://www.modaco.co...q/#entry1092927) flash ONLY "pda" and "csc" files. Are these (CSC_I8000NXXIJ1.CSC and PDA_I8000NXXIJ1_HW_40.MST) files? The PDA and CSC means the first 3 letters of the files or the extension?

Other question: witch CSC file i have to choose? OCTANS show me a lot of option and i dont knot wich choose!

thanks!

Did you try : CSC decoding ?

Thanks for this guide, works perfectly. Even with Octan 2.11.
I have just to install Drivers V5 each time I need to Flash (no need to reboot ?), Se7en give me back the V6 overtime !
