Introduction: This is a repository of step by step guide, do-it-yourself procedures and tricks on how to do things... not included in the user's manual. Its a 'must read' for all SPV users. This was based on adi116's idea (Share your knowledge) of coming up with a standard reference manual.

Advantage: MoDaCo members will be able to download specific topics, step by step guides and tricks related to Smart Amazing Phone/SPV in .doc or .pdf format then view them as reference even without internet access.

How should it work? Contributors can come up with a step by step guide using MS Word, save the copy as 'How To xxx.doc', zip the file, then upload here. Or maybe come up with a guide in pdf format (smaller file size). For the Description/File Comment part, you can write the main points in a concise form (view my first upload).

Choose the desired topic/s you want to download, unzip, then open using Adobe Acrobat Reader or any pdf reader you know.

Upload a tested/valid 'how to' document and help others. :wink:

IMPORTANT: DISABLE FIREWALL FIRST (Norton Personal Firewall, Zonealarm etc) BEFORE DOWNLOADING.

@midnightman
mag downgrade ng ano, rom o bootloader? pag upgrade sa kahit anong rom version or basta magpalit ka ng rom, definitely mabubura lahat ng laman ng IPSM mo.

Sorry, naglabas ako ng statement ng hindi ko naiintindihan. sorry magSPAMsa muna ako. sorry pero kung icopy ko nga ang IPSM sa storage. pwede ko burahin ang bago di ba? tapos palit ko ang IPSM na bago. mali pa din?? kahit ROM or Bootloader ang inupgrade ko. Sorry kung tanga ang dating ha? wala kasi ako oras magbasa ngayon eh.

@deadlock,

hindi mo naman yata hinanap eh :) . I understand you are looking for the bootloader 0.98 (whx file) so you can sim-unlock your phone. Thats why I pointed you that thread...its in page 7....its not about the ROM...its about the bootloader...tatlo yun 0.91, 0.93 and 0.98...eto nalang click mo link:

http://smartphone.mo...er=asc&start=60


@midnightman

yung 0.98, pang-unlock yun...kelangan mo i-downgrade bootloader mo sa 0.98 para ma-unlock. Donwload mo nalang doon sa link na bigay ko kay deadlock

sabi nga dont install a foreign rom...pero actually pwede. Kaya lang, yung GPRS settings mo, maiiba kase mapapalitan ng foreign network settings. Pero okay lang yun...you can change and configure the Smart setting after you install the foreign rom. I suggest after you unlock your phone, install the Qtek or i-Mate rom because those rom versions will keep your unlocked phone remain unlocked.

Marami na sa atin dito na gumagamit ng Qtek rom...isa na ako.

DONT install the SMART 1.50 update if you dont want your phone to get locked again. Kase yung nilabas ng Smart na 1.50 rom, it was programmed to lock your phone again to their network. So better use the Qtek or i-Mate update...search mo nalang

Ganito ginawa ng isang buddy ko na naka Smart 1.50 rom with higher bootloader version:

1. downgraded his bootloader to 0.98 using USBterm, extra 8mb SD card, and someone else' smartphone

2. sim-unlocked his phone using SPVUnlock program

3. downgraded his Smart 1.50 rom to Smart 1.3.7 rom

4. upgraded his Smart 1.3.7 rom to Qtek rom

yun lang :wink:
