Hi,

 

Are you tired of trying to dump your U600 firmware with OptiFlash , just to receive the annoying ERR_BAA_SREC_ADDR message again?

No more. In this tutorial here  http://www.4shared.com/file/35716575/b1a34c46/HOW_TO_DUMP_AND_FLASH_U600_FIRMWARE.html  you will learn how to successfully dump your firmware, using Optiflash, in order you can safely reflash it again, if needed.

Hi,

 

To make things easier, I've prepared a revison of my U600 firmware back-up and flash tutorial. You can find it here.

The back-up routine has been simplified, not requiring the S-Record utility anymore. OptiFlash takes care of everything now.

The back-up files made with this routine can be flashed in any U600.

The flash routine is fairly comprehensive.

ATTENTION PLEASE

RECENTLY ACQUIRED U600, SPECIALLY IN EUROPE, ARE COMING WITH A NEW FIRMWARE RELEASE INSTALLED. THIS NEW RELEASE CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY THE EXISTANCE OF A NEW 10TH DIGIT (AN EXTRA LETTER) IN FIRMWARE NUMBER. FOR INSTANCE:

U600BBVGL2: ORANGE (France)

U600BBBHA1: TMN (Portugal)

BEFORE TRYING TO BACK-UP (DUMP) OR UPDATE (OR UNBLOCK) YOUR U600, PRESS *#1234# TO CHECK U600 FIRMWARE VERSION.

IF YOUR FIRMWARE NUMBER HAS 10 DIGITS ON IT, DO NOT TRY TO BACK-UP (DUMP) OR UPDATE IT USING OPTIFLASH. IF YOU TRY TO YOUR U600 WILL BE DAMAGED.

IF YOUR FIRMWARE NUMBER HAS 9 DIGITS ON IT, YOU CAN SAFELY USE OPTIFLASH TO BACK-UP OR UPDATE YOUR FIRMWARE.

THANKS,

Wildnick

Thank You for this nice guide.

Worked well for my Samsung U600.

 There have been some problems with Media Player after flashing phone but manual phone reset helped :)

 Thanks.
