I always apply upgrades on canary screen. mine has a 1.04 bootloader kaya kelangan ko munang i downgrade yung bootloader ko to 0.99 or 0.98 to apply the qtek update.

normally you don't need to change or downgrade your bootloader if you downgrade to SAP 1.3.7.8 ROM from SAP 1.5.0.28 ROM with 1.04 bootloader but I will gladly help you with the 0.98 bootloader :)

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


Is this rule applicable also to Smart rom 1.6 with bootloader 1.06? A friend of mine got a "test only" unit with such version and he wants to unlock his phone and change to Qtek rom.

Or can he just directly downgrade to Orange Rom or even Qtek Rom and then saka mag-downgrade ng bootloader 0.98 saka mag-unlock?

thanks.

assuming pareho lang ang Smart rom 1.5 and 1.6....paano ngayon mag-downgrade to 0.98 bootloader ang Smart rom 1.5?

You can try downgrading first to SAP 1.3.7.8 then to some Orange update that has the 0.98 bootloader, unlock your phone and apply the Qtek 1.50.9.1 update.....whoooo tagal noon ah :)

I tried downgrading again a few hours ago from SAP 1.5 w/ 1.04 bootloader to SAP 1.3 pero ayaw :) ... nasira tuloy system ng fone ko at kahit anong upgrade ( SAP 1.3; SAP 1.5; Qtek) ang gamitin ko puro error :cry: ... i had no choice but to bring my fone to smart :x . nag reload sila ng system using an SD card.

Ngayon ok na ulit fone ko but i have to re-install everything again.

you must have done something wrong or you were impatient and pulled the plug too earlier, I have had worst experiences, having played around with almost 10 Tanagirls and a mio and brought 5 phones to Brightpoint to have either the unit or PCB replaced ..... anyway this is the fun of having a MS Smartphone and everytime you succeed or fail, you learn something :)

mar, can you guarantee that the advice you gave will work? Bakit ganun nangyari kay elr?

elr, can you try again baka nagkamali ka lang kanina? hehe :)

baka pwede from Smart 1.5 rom to Orange rom?

You can't downgrade/upgrade from smart 1.5. It's locked as in you can't changed the ROM. Kaya kailangan mo munang palitan yung bootloader mo to make that work. Nangyari na sakin before na hanggang canary screen lang ako with bootloader 1.04. I tried orange, smart 1.37 ayaw nang mag install. What I did was borrow a phone from an officemate, copy the bootloader 0.98 to my sd card using USB term, then flash that bootloader to my phone. Tapos run ko ulit yung smart 1.37 update. Voila, may phone's alive again. :)
