same thing happen to me..theirs no upgrade.


The Samsung NPS program doesn´t work in Windows 7 (I know, it´s sucks)... I never try in Windows Vista, but we can try as "Xixon79" said. To disable the "user account control (UAC)" you do that:

- Control pannel
- user account
- change settings from user account control

you must restart after that.

In my case I upgrade my phone in a computer running windows xp (by the way, samsung recommend you upgrade your phone from a computer running windows xp...) =((

G’day guys,

I am wondering whether any one can help. I have read this posting but for some reason it does not help my situation.

My phone specs are:

PDA: I8000XXIH3
CSC: I8000XSOIH1
Phone: I8000DXIH2

I bought the phone back in July 2009 from Singapore, although I am not from Singapore. I am now trying to upgrade my phone to Winmo 6.5 but it just does not work. I have been trying from months.

Setting up NPS, I have made sure that NPS is set to Singapore. I connect my phone to my PC via USB and then go to ‘update’. I select my phone and then I get an error message stating that my phone is not supported. I have installed, uninstalled and re-installed what seems to be 100 times over the past few months and nothing. Has any one else had this issue and if so, has any one found a way around it?

I even tried setting NPS to Malaysia as I see that it works for some, but still nothing. I know that I can use Secany’s ROM, but I would like to do it officially if I can.

Thanks heaps.


Your phone is from singapure for sure (Phone=DX / CSC=XSO). I had this same problem, but it´s because I was trying to upgrade using windows 7... try in a computer running windows XP (some pepople try using Vista, but they have some bug's). Samsung recommend upgrade use windows xp... when I did that, the NPS recognize my phone and upgrade it without problems...

It´s annoying that samsung didn´t resolved this issue yet... my luck that I have a sister with a computer running windows xp... must be suck to go back to XP just to upgrade your phone.

PDA: I8000JVIK1
CSC: I8000ARBIKI
PHONE: I8000XXII5

Anyone has any idea where my phone is from, esp the CSC ARB part? Is an official WM6.5 upgrade available?
Bought it from authorised Samsung Distributor in Kenya (East Africa).


Your problem is the same of "dj_bj". As far as I know, your phone can be from many countries at the same time... Omnia II is a Cellphone and also a Pocket PC. So, your Pocket PC (PDA) can be from one coutry, and your PHONE can be from another... "AndrejSlo" said in the post #4 that he got upgrade from Singapure dispite his CSC code was from another country:

"But here's the thing: the country code (CSC) of the update was XSO (Singapore), which was not what i had, but it worked anyway...
I must add that when i installed the studio for the default country (UK), there was no update, so i guess the PHONE code (DX) is the one that needs to be the same to work, and studio needs to be installed for country corresponding to that code..."


So, if your phone code is XX, try look at the samsung website of this countries if there are an official upgrade available (look at the list in the first post to see the countries from XX code - look at "samsungmobile.com" and not just "samsung.com").

It´s important to note that the upgrade to WM 6.5 are not available in all countries yet... The first was netherlands, and then singapure.

hope that you could upgrade your phone!

best.

p.s.: don't forget to try all this in a computer running windows xp =P

Thanks for that. My PC is running XP, it is the one that I have been trying on the entire time. I don't have Windows 7. Hence, I have no idea why it is not recognising my phone and not letting me upgrade. I have contacted Samsung and they have told me to send the phone to the service centre in Singapore at my expense. I don't want to as it will take weeks before I get it back and Samsung should be on the hook for the freight and not me.

So again, I have no idea why it is not recognising my phone. I am using XP, downloaded the latest NPS, it is fully charged, have set NPS to Singpore, as my phone has the Sing specs, and nothing. Any help would be wicked!

Thanks heaps.

really? ouch... i don´t know why that happens...

your phone is unlock? because you can download the official 6.5 by samsung firmware downloader and install it using octans... so you will have the official 6.5, just installed in a "alternative" way... hehehehe

if it was not a problem for you, read this: http://www.modaco.co...are-downloader/

let me know if you have any question how to do that.

best!
