I'm not responsible for your actions and bla bla bla :(
The omnia is freaking hard to brick if you follow this tutorial though, and if something goes wrong, follow it again and your phone should work again. If it doesn't, try on another computer.

Before you start, you must have at least once synced your phone!!

I made this video. Sorry that it's sped up. Just pause to read the annotations and ask if any questions come to your mind. Because a picture says a thousand words. And a video has a thousand pictures :lol: :lol:

I start off with a rom file, they can be found on this forum. The one I'm currently using is made by Ock, Build 23541, M2D version. Found here.
****THIS IS FOR THE i900 OMNIA, NOT i910 !!!!****

Video:Flashing i900 Omnia on Windows 7&Vista

Sim-Locked i900! (not i910) owners, read this first:
[A sim locked i900 is a i900 which is not able to work with a sim-card of another provider]
1: Open up your phone, "call" to  *7465625*638*#
2: Type de NCK code in which you can find here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_Network_Code
												  shorter link   : http://bit.ly/nYg0B
												  shorter link 2: http://tinyurl.com/nckcodes
										   ( Copy & Paste into url bar of your browser )
3. Type in the new NCK (12345678), and press OK
4. "call" *#7465625# to check the simlock status
5. "call" #7465625*638*# and type your NCK in (12345678)

Once that's done, you can proceed :D

i910 owners, read this first:
If your phone has a rom named CF03, continue the tutorial, if you don't know, here's how you can find out!
Start-Settings-System-Version. Look at ROM Version, if it says "S:i910.10 V.CF03 then you have the CF03 Rom and are able to continue with my tutorial. If it says something else, you'll first have to flash the CF03 rom. Don't worry, I'll explain how;)
1: Plug your Omnia in with it's turned on. Windows will automatically download and install the drivers for you.
2: When this is done, unlpug your phone.
3: Download the VZW update software here: http://sharebee.com/bd345218 (just choose a link and download)
4: Run the file and follow it step by step.
*: Only plug in your phone when prompted to in the update process!

My support for i910 devices is limited, since I own a i900 omnia, but I'll do my best;)

Read this after watching:

All right, the first tool is omnia EXEcutor, by pako777 Download it from: EXEcutor 3.05
The second tool is GrandPrix
Vista and 7 users, download the and open the attachtment. [Open as administrator!]
"USDL_GrandPrix_v1.6.4_VISTA.exe"
XP Users, use the XP version instead. It looks kinda different, but the buttons are the same, you should get it :(
"UMDL_GrandPrix_v1.8.10_XP.exe"

This is my first topic on modaco ever, if I'm violating the rules, please tell me, I didn't mean to :)
Big thanks to pako777, the creators of GrandPrix, all cooks, people that wrote my sources, people that suggested things to add, and people who corrected my mistake!
Without your help it wouldn't have been possible.
I like to cook myself too, but only in real life :P I kinda messed up on my attempt and I'm not wanting to bother anyone with my problem, I'm just a noob at cooking :) but if I ever will find out how to, I'll surely post another video! :)
Update 02/02/10:
-Replaced included zipped grand prix for unzipped one, same version (1.6.4).
-Added section for sim-locked device users.
-Quick video clean up, corrected pauses. You shouldn't have to click the pause button anymore.
-Added i910 support. i910 owners, please confirm wether this works or not.
Update 03/02/10:
-Added XP section. I beleive that my thread is now universal, it supports every windows OS (from XP on) and both i900 and i910 models.
-I'll film a big video tomorrow, showing the flashing progress step by step from a Windows XP laptop and Windows 7 netbook. I'll first reflash Ock's rom, then the dutch rom by Bruno Adler. Both differ a little bit.

THANK YOU!!! Your guide was just what I needed! I didn't want to mess around with VMWare or Windows XP (don't have an ISO file of it nor a CD installer) and I've been stuck with the traditional WinMo 6.1 for years! I've only been able to tolerate it because I installed SPB Home Plus which also tries to copy the whole interface of the HTC phones. Whoever you are, you have my deepest gratitude!

AWESOME STUFF. Thanks very much! This worked a charm.

The only comment I have is you should write out the steps in your original post. I found your video was not very clear due to the size and you move very fast so I was pausing a lot. As well as this I do not have dutch language files so all of the buttons are ??? I really had to pay attention to what you were clicking.

Thanks again!

i900 original flashed to win 6.5 b 23541 :)
