I have just caught the 'White Screen of Death' and i desperately need to flash my SE z205a. Any help pls.


Posted by strizlow800
Try searching www.4shared.com for firmware (or www.iprotebe.cz)

Posted by crystlrain
Thanks strizlow800.

But then the iprobete.cz site seems unavailable and the 4shared site does not seem to have any firmwares for z250.

Btw, are firmware extensions '.sin'

"White screen of death" on Z250?

I don't know... It seems SE is not the same anymore...



Posted by strizlow800
Firmware extensions are .mbn for MAIN and .fbn for FS... They may wary if the phone is older model... For example, I have W800 firmware in .bin format (still works with XS++ for me)

Posted by strizlow800
This post is a kind of update to help you not browsing through the forum... As this tutorial is for CID49/51/52 phones and CID53 is not supported by XS++ yet, our fellow member centur wrote CID53 flashing tutorial... So all CID53 phone users who want to flash their phones, folow this guide:

Hey guys,

Need help putting flash menus on a W600i with XS++ (any version)..


I've got the .thm files and the .swf files already, uploaded the flash files to the phone in desktop/flash folder.

Then I moved the themes to the card, applied them, but the menu still stays the same.

Can anyone help out?

Thanks in advance,

For flash themes you can try this tutorial:

Heyy help needed pls T.T

I have tried to flash my w550i with xs++ according to the instruction you posted, but xs++ was unable to customize the filesystem (own_custpack). I then used SeToolLite to flash in the finalization files but then the phone still remained at the 'Configuration error. Please contact network operator or service centre'. The phone is still CID49 but DB2010. someone help?

hey just a question (or 2): im trying to deband my vodafone k610i, will the web browser/sms/mms still keep the same settings if i flash the firmware or if not how do i back them up? also the phone is a little different to normal k610i's, the activity menu button is changed to an end call button and the web button is changed to a start call button, if i flash the firmware will the buttons preform the origanal sonyericsson functions or the vodafone ones?

heres a picture of the phone with the vodafone buttons:

I just went ahead and did it and it works!!! no more vodafone shit and those buttons preform origanal se functions (will probly confuse someone using my phone, end call button=activity menu, start call button=web browser)

Posted by strizlow800
Yeah I know the keys are a bit confusing now, but at least they are doing their "factory job".

If the key functions are annoying you, you can get yourself an new original keypad for your phone... Check www.cnn.cn to see if there is kayboard for your phone

Posted by strizlow800
For Asia levan firmware you can use this:

HB1-06_Gen_CDA102568_5_R5A_GENERIC_S_ASIA_LEVAN

Anyway you didnt specify which phone you have so we can give you links for the firmware files...

I suggest you searching through http://www.4shared.com as I have seen several "asia levan" firmwares there

You can try www.iprotebe.cz too.

In this thread or tutorial it is said that while choosing the cust pack u should stick to the CDA...
here u have adviced me to use "HB1-06_Gen_CDA102568_5_R5A_GENERIC_S_ASIA_LEVAN
"

but i dont know what is HB1-06_Gen please tell me what it is...and also this "CDA102568_5_R5A" too doesnt match my CDA.

my CDA is CDA102535/14 R2A....

nothing about my cda matches...

Posted by strizlow800
Look, if tou use FS file that contains ASIA_LEVAN in it's name, you should use custpack that is compatible with ASIA_LEVAN (usualy has that name)

1. Hi i'm looking for K800_R8BF003_MAIN_GENERIC_WI_RED52 , K800_R8BF003_FS_APAC_RED52 , and new Cust Pack with CDA102568 APAC . I'm already search it every where and still not found it. Can anyone help me??

2. Is there any part of my K800i that can be flashed beside Main, FS, and Cust Pack? I had a strange problem with my K800i..

Posted by strizlow800
The MAIN and FS are the parts that can be flashed... There are GDFS and EROM... EROM can be reflashed too, but not the GDFS so easily... .

Anyway you can download the firmware you need from www.4shared.com

or try www.sek750i.pl or www.iprotebe.cz

Posted by Fiddler
yeah, its a nice guide...

but I just cant follow it.. its too advanced..

Posted by strizlow800
Why too advanced mate???

Compared to some other guides this one is piece of cake imo . Anyway if you have parts that are not clear to you, feel free to ask .

Tell me the EXACT version of the MAIN firmware you have, and the EXACT version of the FS... I will help you find compatible firmwares...

And of course your phone info...

Hi, I want to flash my k800i to R8BF003 so i can use some of the patches which aren't avalible to r1k001. Heres some more information about my phone.

21:35:40| Profiling SEMC phone...
21:35:40| Platform: DB2020
21:35:40| OTP CID: 51
21:35:40| EROM CID: 52
21:35:40| EROM Color: Red
21:35:40| IMEI: 35908701xxxxxx
21:35:40| Phone ID: K800
21:35:40| Region: EUROPE_2
21:35:40| CDA: CDA102511/190 R1A
21:35:40| Firmware Version: R1KG001
21:35:40| EROM: R3A022
21:35:40| Ready for operation!

I was wondering, if i could only flash the main and not the FS. Would this work or brick the phone.


Posted by tranced
yes, you can flash the MAIN only.

Posted by gunot12
wow thank you for your fast reply. If i flash the main, is there anything else i would need to do such as the finalizing or would i be able to use the phone straight after. Also i cant find an APAC version so if i flash with K800_R8BF003_MAIN_GENERIC_WI_RED52.mbn what would happen. I live in Australia by the way.

no, mate. you dont need to finalize the phone as you wont touch the FS(where you finalize the phone).

Posted by gunot12
Thank you very much for your help. I successfully flashed the main to R8BF003

@Unforgiven
Thanx bro....I know about that, I just doesn't know how to upload multiple files like acoustic driver at once. How to do that with XS++v3.1 ?

Do I need to upload the acoustic driver one by one? (I hope not, its boring and more chance to miss one files.... )

One more....how to drag and drop multiple files? where I have to drop the multiple file from my PC to XS++ v3.1 ? step by step please

Thanx B4

@pram: just select the files you want to upload, drag them and then drop them in the right side panel. it will take a while so dont be waiting it in a minute

Posted by pram_zx
@tranced
I already do that, but, when I select some file and drag the file to XS++ v3.1 (Right panel offcourse, suddenly appear circle with cross symbol on the center.
then....when I release it, it doesn't drop at all(can not drop to XS++ v3.1 Right panel, doesn't know how... ).

Use the ''browse'' button may come handy/helfpfull in your situation.

Hi, I hope that you'll able to assist me with finishing the flash update of my K610i.

First of all, I'm from Denmark and the phone was from the service provider 3, which (like most of the other providers selling phones these days) had clogged it with all kinds of software I didn't need.

I connected the K610i to XS++ v3.1 and said yes to updating the CID from 49 to 52.

I then successfully managed to flash the phone with the 'K610_R1KG001_MAIN_GENERIC_TH_RED52' and the 'K610_R1KG001_FS_EUROPE_2_RED52.fbn' files from http://www.iprotebe.cz and the phone works fine as it is.

The thing is that, right now I have the choice between the languages in the region EUROPE2 and I'd really like to (especially when messaging) have the ability to write in Danish.

After searching around on Google and 4shared, I've not been able to find a FS with the right CID version, for EUROPE4 which would be the right region.

Is it anyhow possible to create your own package? Or does anyone of you know where I might be able to find the right one?

Thanks a lot for the help and keep up the good work!

Klaus

EDIT: Managed to solve the problem with a HUTCH1 FS. So all there is left to say is thanks for the guide!

Glad to hear you solved the issue. And no problem for the guide... Will put more when needed.

Posted by chikod
hello

where do we download from finalization files. I flashed K800 and i can not finalize it.

Posted by strizlow800
Search them on www.4shared.com. If you can't find, just let me know which one you need. I will download it for you.

Posted by frankthetank
Nevermind it can't be recognised by xs++ even with a full battery so I guess it's a dead loss

Posted by strizlow800
Try to get it connected to SeTool instead. Or hold 2+5 keys instead of C. Check if you have USB flash driver installed correctly also.

it only means that your flasher (FAR plugin) isnt fit for CID53...

or

your phone cannot be read by your present flasher (FAR plugin)...
