New oficial firmware (04-28-10) + instructions how to flash

Recommended Posts

Hi people!

I found today a new rom in samsung firmware downloader (date released: 04/28/10). It´s a official 6.5.3, and have all the programs and games that usually found at samsung rom´s... but the good news is at after flashing you will have:

RAM: 74mb* free (the biggest that I ever see, by now, in a official 6.5 samsung rom)

Main storage: 111mb

*after a soft reset... will decrease to about 50mb after some time and use.

This is the links for download (mirros are highly appreciated!!!):

If you are a newbie and don´t know how to flash, here a step by step that I wrote based on information that I found here in modaco comunity:

WHAT IS THE "SAMSUNG FIRMWARE DOWNLOADER"?

It´s a program that download from samsung servers all the firmwares that they developed... including the ones who not released to the public yet. You can find the program here in Modaco.

Read this: http://www.modaco.com/content/i8000-omnia-...are-downloader/

It´s a very easy program to use (very intuitive...) if you try use in Windows 7 you will have a lot of bugs (you wil have error messages)... but trust me, just click again and one time the program will work. I already downloaded 2 firmwares from my laptop running Windows 7 (don´t need to execute in XP compatibility or as administrator... just execute as usual).

WHAT I DO AFTER DOWNLOAD THE FIRMWARE?

After download the ROM from the samsung firmware downloader (or other ROM developed by modaco´s experts), you need to install it in your OMNIA II. For do that you will need a program named "OCTANS 2.14". This program do the same than the "upgrade function" of the "Samsung New PC Studio", the diference is that you can choose the ROM that you want to install. Also you will need the "Samsung Modem Driver".

You will find this two programs here: http://rapidshare.com/files/349270007/i800...4_Driver.7z.zip

After download, follow the steps:

1. install "Samsung Modem" (don´t do that now if you are running windows 7 - read bellow)*

2. turn off your phone

3. Plug your phone, via USB, in the computer (must be turn off) and wait for the computer reconize and adjust the driver that you install.

4. Unplug your phone from the computer

5. Run OCTANS**

* for install samsung modem in W7:

a. turn on your computer and press F8 after BIOS

b. choose "disable driver signature enforcement"

c. after startup, plug your phone (must be turn off) in your computer

d. stop the automatic windows search for the driver

e. go to "control panel", "system", "device manager"

d. look in "other devices" for "GT-I8000"

e. right button and choose "update driver software"

f. choose "browse for driver software on your computer" and than select the folder where you unzip the samsung modem

** for using OCTANS in W7

a. right button click on EXE archive of OCTANS

b. select "compatibility"

c. click on the box "run this program in compatibility mode for:"

d. choose "windows xp sp3"

e. run the program as "administrator" - right click and "run as administrator"

HOW TO USE OCTANS?

When you download the firmware, you will have 4 archives (.eb0, .csc, .mst, .bin). You have to select this archives from OCTANS... do this:

1. click on eboot and choose the .eb0 file

you can skip this step, isn't really necessary and you can lost your warranty

2. click on MultiCSC and choose the .csc file (you can choose the language in the box between PDA and MultiCSC - after select the archive)

3. click on MoviNAND and choose the .mst file

4. click on Phone and Choose the .bin file

Just that... don´t worry about any other function...

5. click on "detect"

6. plug your phone (must be turn off) via USB in your computer - the OCTANS will detect your phone, and the option "start downloading" will be available

7. click on "start downloading"

8. wait...

9. enjoy!!!

p.s.: fully charge your phone before flash!!!

Hope this could help someone... and thank you all for helping me, I have been learn a lot here in Modaco comunity!!!!

Best for all!!

It´s JD3, but in the samsung firmware download say that this version was release in 04-28-10. I also found other JD3 older versions in the program... actually this is the latest version available in the program.

Thanks godoyster. I see from the image you provided that it was released yesterday(April 28th 2010) . I am downloading it now to compare it to the older JD3 I am using. Thanks for sharing since some of use are stuck with Windows vista x64 bit on which the Firmware downlader does not work. Thanks for sharing.

I got 74 MB free and after using it for a few hours the free memory will go down to around 65 (not bad).

One nice thing with this ROM after you flash it .. Samsung gives you the option to use TouchWiz or Samsung Today or Windows Default for your main screen.

I can't find the MainMenu and Cube also.

Fast ROM I must say

If your OMNIA II is unlock, yes, no problem!

If it's lock by some telecom operator, you need to unlock. read this: http://www.modaco.com/content/i8000-verizo...-i8000-o2-here/

EDIT

that´s not true, according to the user jebise (see post #18), you can flash your phone no matter if it´s lock or not.

Just recently got the O2 from Bell which is WM6.5. Does this mean it is safe to flash the phone with WM6.5.3? I do not mind having the extra memory available to me. Is there any downside? Will it affect warranty? Thanks.
