You need usb term to copy the bootloader from phone to sd/mm card. It's operated through PC.

Thanks SPV, but i dont want to bring my laptop anymore when im going to meet my friend... i've read from this forum that you can copy the bootloader from SD to phone directly.... so there must be a way to copy it from phone to SD without a pc..

Yes there is. You need another piece of hardware called a card reader. Let's you transfer winhex image file from PC to sdcard.

Where are you located? we can meet each other and I can let you use my SD card with 0.98 bootloader, it will take only a few seconds to load the bootloader to your phone :)

card reader? hmm... is there another way without using any other devices except your smartphone and SD card? yun bang tipong may pipindotin lang while entering the canary screen mode tapos may lalabas na options sa screen gaya sa usbterm. :)

How do I use this Winhex program? Do I really need a card reader? Hindi ba pwedeng derecho from PC to the SD card in my phone? Can you please post the procedure in using Winhex?


thanks...

I have talk to Dino already, btw: if unlocking your phone is what you want to do, bootloader 0.99 will not work only 0.98 or lower :wink:

Yes you need a SD/MMC - card reader/writer to write the bootloader to your SD/MMC card, WinHEX is a program that let you read/copy/edit/write HEX files :idea:

you don't need to change bootloader to do that, just downgrade to SAP 1.3.7.8 ROM then you can apply Qtek ROM 1.50.9.1 and only if you have upgraded to SAP 1.5.0.28 ROM if you already have something lower just run Qtek Update in the canary screen and it should work :)

Puwede mo nang ituloy yung upgrade kung may bootloader 0.99 ka. Only the 1.04 bootloader of smart rom 1.50.28 prevents any unofficial upgrades / downgrades.

To sim unlock your phone, you may want to consider downgrading the ROM to Orange UK 1.3.5. This will downgrade the bootloader to 0.98. By then you can run the sim unlock software. However, it might erase your IPSM too.

i already tried downgrading to 1.3 from 1.5 but always got an error... kaya i think i need to downgrade my bootloader first before i can downgrade to 1.3 then apply the qtek update.

Also if you still have the 1.5 ROM and 1.04 bootloader of Smart you may not be able to downgrade your bootloader to 0.98 :)
