OK I didnt go to work today just to bring my phone to Brightpoint for keypad replacement so I could upgrade my phone tonight :)

I still have the 1.3.6 rom, sim-locked to Smart. Can anyone recommend if I should first sim-unlock it before upgrading to Qtek7070 rom? Or can I go ahead with the upgrade with a sim-locked SAP?

@dinoalbert, go ahead with the upgrade. I've read in other forums as well that the qtec upgrade will definitely unlock your phone. No problem with the 1.3 SMART ROM. I'm sure it will work just do the upgrade in the canary screen. :)

@martin

did you say you did a Hard Reset AFTER upgrading to Qtek's rom? Is that recommended? If I Hard Reset AFTER upgrading, will my phone stay with the Qtek rom or will it go back to the original 1.3.6 rom?

duh! nabobobo na yata ako sa dami ng trabaho hehehe

I'll answer that @dinoalbert since I am online and his not! :)

On initial boot, it will scan your IPSM then reboot. Afterwhich, voila, no more IPSM data! :o But after that cleanup, your ROM will be permanently Qtek 1.50.9.1 even if you'll do a million hardreset. :wink:

This has been posted within this forum. Now, I'm trying out this new Qtek ROM myself. And it looks impressive.  

Some things I did and my findings:

1. Upgraded from SAP 1.3.7.8 to Qtek 1.50.9.1 - successful
   However, It automatically erased my IPSM!  
2. Downgraded back to SAP 1.3.7.8 (to test if it can be reverted to old version) - successful
3. Upgraded back to Qtek ROM.
4. It seems the ROM is not SIMLOCKED to any network provider. My Smart SIM still works without having to run an unlock application. I tried the Orange upgrade before and it prompted me for an unlock code. This one didn't. Haven't tried this with Globe though. For those of you who want to have your phone sim-unlocked and use it with globe, you might want to give this a shot.
5. Works with uncertified applications.
6. SMS counter finally working (you have to put a recipient in the "To:" field).
7. With ASCII like the smiley "u".
8. Two new application under Accesories "Authentication" - looks like for GPRS authentication and "CSDType" - for dial up configuration.
9. I don't know if I've just overlooked this before, but there's a "MMS Setup" also under Accessories which lets you configure sending of MMS over GPRS or LAN.  
10. Looks like it eats up some more memory compared with SAP 1.3.7.8. Before I had 8.3 MB on boot, now only 7.5MB.
11. Expectedly, configurations specific to SMART are gone like Action Backup and Update, and GPRS settings.

Finally, you can download the ROM here:

Whem I update using orange rom update it does not allow me to send any SMS... it does not allow you to reply or compose new message .... there is no problem with SMS number... i'm not sure if that will also happen using the qtek update.

I didn't have any problem with the upgrade. Even when I downgraded back to SMART 1.3.7.8, it still has signal. SMS is working perfectly. No change in parameter in smsc message center number.

spv_dman, ignore my first PM...just the second one :o

I have already upgraded my SAP to Qtek's latest rom...and its a success! Didnt encounter any problem during the process.

BUT I had a 1.3.6 rom "sim-locked" when I upgraded....after the upgrade, I tried my Globe sim but it asked me for s sim-unlock code :shock: so that means, it will not automatically sim-unlock your phone. I should have unlocked it first before doing the upgrade. anyway, I will just try the spvunlock app...probably tomorrow I can give additional feedback.

Anyway, my SAP now has better startup logo :) , a working SMS character counter and it can use ringtones saved in SD card.....with that, Im already happy with this upgrade :P

a minor problem though but Im not sure if its just me...Active Sync wont automatically start when you connect the phone to the desktop USB....I have to manually double-click on the AS desktop icon :(

@dinoalbert

Disconnect the SPV from USB cable and goto Programs-Settings-Activesynch. In menu-option-PC settings, check the auto start synch is ticked and set to USB. Hopefully this is the problem.

The SIM unlock is seperate issue and will be hard coded in the phone regardless of the OS. You will probably need bootloader .98 to run the SPVunlock program.

Qtek 1.5 is great but I miss Sound Manager :)

-You lose action update/backup - i think this is a valuable tool to use personally.
-no useful t9
-i gained ridiculously impoved battery life.

It's a nice geek upgrade, but if you've got 1.35 or 1.5 working, it's not really worth the effort as far as i can see.
I've got no choice (my phone refuses to downgrade to orange roms anymore), so for the time being, i'm very happy, but miss t9.

Copy the Usbcnect.lnk from Windows to IPSMWindowsStartup. This will let your phone automatically connect on phone boot. Follow the advise of Martin as well.
