    So i'm new to android and a lot of this is new to me (formerly a winmo flasher) Do we know if the pda part alone can be flashed without rooting?

    Yes it can. Use Odin

    Any news on a rom for the bell I7500L phones? I got a brick now lol since I did not do all my homework before changing roms.

    BTW I hope that terminology is correct haha.

    I've just downloaded I7500XXIK5-PDA-CL99814-REV5_ITV_ and it comes with the following files once extracted: amss, cache.img, kernel, recovery, system. From what i've already read it seems that amss may cause me issues. Using odin multiloader wouldn't I be able to flash only system for example? as well if someone can walk me through it I would be happy to back up my bell ROM for the gentleman that bricked his so he can restore it. :)

    I guess you need someone with a 7500L to keep checking with NPS
  6. tkb24

    tkb24 Member

    That would be great gilbilly but from what I understand it is not as easy as that. I am not even sure how it is done. I will keep looking though and checking back to this thread. I am sure something with come up soon.

    What's NPS?
  7. gilbilly

    gilbilly Active Member

    NPS = Samsung New PC Studio
  8. kam187

    kam187 Well-Known Member

    gilbilly: You need to remove the cache.img so that it doesnt install the Italian customisations. You also !!MUST!! remove the amss, or you'll end up bricking your radio.

    You could backup the partitions on your phone, but you cannot backup the AMSS. So it won't help tkb24 :(

    tkb24: NPS is New PC Studio. Its the software that comes with your phone (and you can download it from the samsung web site). It is what you're supposed to use to update your phone.

    Updated get pushed to it when you're operator gives samsung the OK. As soon as you get ONE update from NPS you can fix your phone.

    Because you have flashed your phone with a 7500 firmware, you cant check with NPS, since it will search for 7500 firmware and not 7500L firmware.

    If you look in the forum, there is also a program called FUS downloader. This will query the server in the same way NPS does. You need to change the values to a valid firmware tho.

    The best bet is probably if gilbilly installs new PC studio and tries to update on it. If it offers you an update i'll talk you through how to grab the fille after its downloaded. If there's no update available you'll just have to wait.

    BTW use 'jzip' to remove the files from the tar. winzip, winrar etc will break the tar file and odin wont accept it.

    jzip is free (google it)

    I've checked NPS and there are no updates as of yet. as soon as there is I will let you know though

    Thanks kam187. it worked perfectly

    Thanks for the help and keeping an eye out for the firmware update. Here is to hoping there is one soon.

    at the and of the post you may see a link called "[Tradutor]", click it and you may translate to english, italian or franch.

    crappy thing is our bell i7500 are actually ik6 (or at least my Phone part shows ik6) it seems. i failed to check before I flashed ik5 pda part. I'm not noticing a huge difference though so that's good I guess
  17. kam187

    kam187 Well-Known Member

    really? lol. ot worth flashing to ik5 then :p
  18. gilbilly

    gilbilly Active Member

    Ok so my roommate had the exact same phone as me which is untouched. I want to create a back of it so that I can always fall back on it (never backed mine up) I'm looking everywhere and everyone seems to have different steps for this. can anyone direct me to the best and simplest way to do this?
  19. informale

    informale Well-Known Member

    what kind of backup exactly do you mean? apparently, you cannot backup the whole firmware off the phone.
  20. gilbilly

    gilbilly Active Member

    really all i want is to extract the pda part from his phone so i can flash it to mine if i need to
  21. informale

    informale Well-Known Member

    The only thing that comes to my mind is to factory reset his phone, install custom recovery, make a nandroid backup. But I'm not sure you can actually revert your phone to IK6 by restoring this backup on your phone.
  22. gilbilly

    gilbilly Active Member

    that's the part that's throwing me off is that i'm finding 50 different ways to do the custom backup and nandroid thing but nothing seems to work
  23. gilbilly

    gilbilly Active Member

    so a bit of an update. I had to exchange my Galaxy. Turns out flashing the ik5 pda part messed up my gps. I now have an untouched galaxy that i can back up
  24. informale

    informale Well-Known Member

    Seems like best backup for now is keeping it untouched.

    That's it... and I can't find some clue of why the lock screen does not work anymore after an outgoing call.
    And no matter what firmware I'm using, it simply happens.

    The only way to get the lock screen back is by killing the Dialer service (that is almost a reboot in the phone).

    Please somebody help! :eek:
