I can't guarantee. All are just speculations at this point that the upgrade will not simlock the SAP. I'm guessing that it will even open line a simlocked phone. I don't have a globe sim to try this out. I suggest you wait for the experts to give it a shot first and wait for the results.

It is worth mentioning that it might be a good idea to run SPVunlock and also backup the 0.98 bootloader on a spare SD card using USBterm before upgrading to the 1.5 software. Then if the phone does becomes network locked again then you should be able to unlock it.

Has anyone tried restoring a USBterm saved 0.98 bootloader to 1.5 yet ?

Well this answers the question of many. I'm assuming that you've unlocked your phone prior to upgrade. I'm eager though to find out if it unlock a previously simlocked sap.

A couple of other changes I have noticed to the software...

1: In Settings > Telephone > Networks it shows the network code for preferred networks (next to the network name) and allows you to add a new custom network by entering the network code.

2: The cell broadcast no longer appears on my homepage for Vodafone UK. The local area code should appear, and did when using the Swiss 1.5 update, but no longer appears on this Qtek update.

Nice to see a fully functoning SMS counter that correctly detects if you are sending an SMS or Email. It's worth upgrading just for that.

I haven't experimented with 1.50.28 ROM in this upgrade. Can you still use your phone? If so don't attempt any further unless you're willing to take the risk of messing it up. I encountered problems with this SMART ROM before wherein the upgrade was halfbaked. I got stuck with the canary screen with bootloader 1.04. I had to do the "bootloader 0.98 backup/restore procedure" and downgraded back to 1.3.7.8 to make my phone operational. If you'll read through this forum you'll find out that indeed SMART 1.5.28 is a headache in terms of installation for most of us.

Guess i was kinda lucky, didnt disconnect the sap, just quit the application in program manager and ran quickreset. No problems so far. :)

I love my Tanager! :o

Ps. im just after the counter, am used to send plenty txt and mms abroad.
i dnt settle for just putting a # in the "to" field! Its the Telco obligation
to give that counter to us!

Tried downlaoding the file from Qtek. Couldn't do the update though. I get an Error 117: Invalid Model. Is there a special procedure for installing the update?.

Try upgrading in the tricolor canary screen. You can go there by shutting down your phone then booting up by holding down REC + POWER ON button.  Then perform the installlation again.




I changed my ROM successfully to QTEK and i noticed it runs better compare to the previous....

i have got it on to my SPV now but forgot that it would erase all my numbers(whoops :oops: )
But, i backed up my ipsm before i started. I dont suppose that it saves the numbers on the fone when you back up???
If it does is there an easier way to get them from the backup than reverting back to old firmware syncing with outlook and installing it again?
Cheers guys! im screwed without my contacts

But the new rom is definately faster

Yeah it works :)

After updating the software I did the additional hard reset (as stated in other topic). The Sounds application still couldn't see the WAV files in Storage Card/My Documents so I deleted the WAV files and copied them in again. Newly copied files are now showing up in Settings-Sounds.

I think I would try the re-copying of the WAV files to Storage Card/My Documents first and see if it works without the additional IPSM reset.

Dinoalbert, i try to answer you even you did'nt ask me hehehehe. I confirmed that it will run even if you dont have the changer soneries, All you have to do is to make a FOLDER in Storage Card and name it as "My Documents" then put all your tones in that folder.
