Id reccomend you do use the csc too but you dont have to :D Its pretty safe to flash it. The only dangerous part is the eboot section. Things like the rom version name are held in the csc. Sometimes people put other stuff in too tho. I put my touch improvements into it :D


Thanks JC. :lol:

Thanks sir.... I hope that our fellow omniacs :D ( specially those who are new to flashing) can read this topic before doing it. It can save their time and minimize the possibility of bricking their omnia...




This is my first post here....
In addition to safe flashing and worry free of bricking thier i900..
I buy a new hard disk to my existing desktop and installed XP OS...
Install the Active Sync, Samsung XP modem driver and correct ROM...

Note: Don't install any anti virus and off the firewall.

I just saw another person who had failed to flash his omnia because he did not install the samsung modem driver... X_X Please guys... take time to read the tips on the first post... so that we can avoid such situation...



Hello Angel, great guide, i'm sure you have saved alot of people with this guide. I want some help from you, i downloaded ock_GTX_23118 and ock_Premium_23118 by ock. My omnia version is:
PDA : JCIC1
PHONE : JCIC2

I live in South Africa and i want to flash my omnia.
I went through a lot of posts just to get the idea of what i'm getting my self into.
Can you please let me know these roms will work on my phone?
I also don't see to find where to download most of the tools you are talking about (.exe updater, Granprix), can you maybe show me links that are working so that i can download them.
I have been using SBP 3.5, i like it, but i really want to try these roms. the reason i installed it is because i hated the winmo 6.1! i still don't like the look!

Thanx in advance.

Guys I'm so sorry. I can't update this topic nowadays because I'm busy reviewing for my board exam(5 months to go ;)). Anyway, I hope our friendly ROM chefs and enthusiasts can reply to the queries of our fellow omniacs here. Anyway, you can PM me on my FB account if you really need help.


BTW, thanks sir JC and others for your replies here. :(
