I have a rom on my phone that is changed by the telecommunication corporation and this rom version is Android 2.3.5 and I cannot upgrade to 2.3.6 by Kies (says it is already updated, despite knowing that there is 2.3.6).
I successfully install ClockworkMod on B5510. Can I download the 2.3.6 from Samfirmware and apply it using ClockworkMod?
It is possible to update your B5510 but not with the widespread offered firmwares-packages that only contain the PDA file. Someone who has a z3x-box (in the Philippines) has downloaded a full installation package containing all
the necessairy files. (BOOT/PDA/MODEM/CSC/PIT)
I succesfully upgraded my firmware but no European languages are supported. English (UK/US) and some others. But no Dutch, Spanish, Portuguees etc.
When you upgrade you most probably will loose CWM because you also flash a new bootloader.
matteosg posted in this XDA-thread at post #6 a download link for the full package: http://forum.xda-dev....php?p=26251171
Could you explain how you installed CWM or got the right version/information fot it?
Cyanogenmod for B5510 would solve a lot of flashing problems. Because from what I know it is not possible to flash the PDA file with CWM.
EDIT: Never mind... solved the firmware flashing problem...Cyanogenmod is still wanted though:
I found a way to flash the single PDA-file.
The trick is to split-up the single file in a MODEM, CSC and PDA file. This can be done with the tool 'Splitfus2
' developed by Dokey73 on XDA.
Download links and instructions are provided in the tread. Simply put for windows users: Install 'cygwin' a linux terminal emulator with some plugins. Place the program 'Splitfus' and the firmware-PDAin the installation dir. Execute the program and you will receive three files you can flash with Odin.
I have done so succesfully with B5510BVLD1_B5510AMNKJ2_B5510BVLD1_HOME.tar.md5. And flashing the three produced files.
I've done this by using the following command for starting Splitfus without parameters:
and flashed WITHOUT
any pit or BOOT files and didn't
(this is also mentioned in the released readme.txt when you split the PDA file)
- The first time I received an error message 'can't open file' in cygwin. --> reinstall cygwin and select the plugins for installation that give support for tar/zip/md5
- Easy way to get things working is to place the Splitfus2.exe in the BIN folder in the installation folder of cygwin. And place the _base folder with userdata.img in the HOME\user
folder of the cygwin installation folder. Place your Firmware file in the same HOME\user
folder and your good to go
I have succesfully flashed the splitup:
B5510BVLD1_B5510AMNKJ2_B5510BVLD1_HOME.tar.md5 (Spain - orange)
Note for Dutch users. The latest Spain firmware gives an altered layout for the keyboard. Mostly correct, but @ is under a different key and also a few others.
