MPx220 and Latest Firmware

Recommended Posts

I've read many posts on other web sites (i.e. howardforums) on how some people managed to put the 1.25 version on their phone. Some others posted info about 1.32 and 1.33 firmwares as well which supposely make a HUGE difference in the sound issue and mini sd card compatibility and they are by far superior compared to the Cingular 1.30 (1.030).

Someone here also placed a post that Motorola is planning for a new firmware release these days.

Can someone confirm, what are the plans for the new firmware? What shall we expect from motorola and/or cingular?

Cheers!

As of now, you can expect nothing ;) I've had problems with this phone since day one, but lived with it expecting the 1.9 firmware which never came 'yet'. I'm hoping that sucker gets released soon so I can finally live with this phone.

who knows! there are issues with 1.25 that i dont have with 1.03 - bluetooth autoanswering, 2-sec delay when answering phone before the other side can hear you.

it seems like, in getting some things right, theyll manage to just screw up a few and make new problems at the same time.

so im sure theyll fix the volume or something amazing.

but then our 5 keys will always type 9's or something absurd ;)

I hope they do something because this phone started out working so extremely well and now it's degraded into a POS...

cingular and motorola are working to get a new firmware update out soon. i know this because i work for cingular. as of last week they were waiting for motorola to finish the firmware so they can flash all the phones they pulled off the shelves.

after that time, to my knowledge, you should be able to download the firmware from motorolas site or you can call the cingular warrenty department and they will send you out a replacment phone and you ship them back your phone.

either way we should see something in the next few weeks

-opti-

EDIT: you'll only be able to cash in the warrenty if your phone doesnt have any physical damage. also i am unaware if the phones theyll replace yours with will be new or refurbished.

Nice thats good news I even emailed motorola about a firmware update and they didnt tell me just gave me a load of bs that was nothing to do with the question. Crap customer service : $

1.33 is the latest Chinese rom, 1.28 is the latest European...

i got 1.25 unbranded and for me it's better than 1.03 cingular rom.

i'm expecting someone releases 1.28! to try it

What will the cingular release be? 1.033?

You are talking about a generic firmware or a cingular specific - although I really don't mind as long as they fix the #@$%$#^#@ sound issue. I'm on 1.03 from Cingular.

I'll try it!!! ;):):D

to my knowledge there will be a cingular firmware upgrade. it would be kinda dumb for them to only fix the phone for one carrier so i would expect them all to get an update.

I assume 1.25 is NOT 1.025 and is later than 1.03. Where did you find that? ;):);)

you are correct, grasshoppa. 1.25 is later. though it does come with that pesky answer-delay issue. darnit.

and... er... what did you mean by where did you find that? as in... where can 'you' get it?

Hi Opti,

I don't understand why they wouldn't just release the firmware at the same time Cingular flashes all the phones they have in stock? What's the reasoning behind delaying the release of the firmware to the public for download? I'm at wits end with this phone... can't hear anything.

Hope this firmware will be released soon. There was a previous thread stating it would be released a week or so back, that got me to buy the phone wish I hadn't.

dont cont on it this month. ive heard that itll be available at the end of may.

as for the phone. its a good phone. you just have to find a firmware version thatll make you happy (or splice together bits and pieces from a few). i love the phone - even without a new firmware. though itll be wonderful if they can fix some of the problems with it soon ;) also, a bluetooth headset will correct volume issues - you dont have to deal with the speaker at all. if youre a cingular customer, head over to hofo or pm me and ill give you the details. you might not have to pay for a headset.

Yep, where can I get the latest EU firmware? Although I don't have any sound issues - in fact I keep the volume to 50% cause it's too loud for my ears - I would prefer the EU firmware to provide me with a generic settings-free mobile.

I'd love to help you out there, Paraklas, but unless I can find a way to pull of 1.15 from mine.....

Hi,

I have an AT&T Wireless MPx220 with 0.343 FW.

I sent a mail to Motorola to ask them if there is or will be an update for AT&T phones and they said that it is not likely. So if a new upgrade will come out soon, then it'll be only for Cingular devices:(

Don't worry about that cause we found a way to trick motorola update server to think that you have a cingular phone instead of an AT&T and update it succesfully.

The only thing that remains is the actual firmware.

Good to hear that:)

Can anyone of you send me this xml file, with which I can later trick the updater? (I think that it was deleted from the forum and I din't download it before that). Thanks in advance!

i dont think youll need it. the other updater allows anyone to update their phone as long as you have the rom downloaded - which will be available shortly after it becomes avail on the moto website. ;)

I was trying to put to a Cingular firmware on an AT&T phone by tricking the updater using a cingular generated systeminfo.xml. This was for the online update.

Of course, nothing compares to 1.25 ROM and the offline process is SO much easier than online (Took me less than 10 minutes)
