    Samsung D500? it's 900/1800/1900 and there is no variant with the 850 band.

    oddly, I've never gotten this trick to work at all... I always get an error msg in x65flasher no matter what version I use. I use the correct com port and everything, tried various speeds, still no go. I connect the cable, turn the phone off, set up x65flasher, press connect, press the red button on the phone and a dialog comes up asking what I want to do... I choose "generate boot password" as it's the only option that does anything. Then hit the red button again, phone comes up in service mode and x65 says "starting service mode" then errors out with "no answer from BFC ping". I'm not sure what else to try here. Any ideas?

    You know, the same thing happens to me, but when I try "Boot Password - ********" that does the same thing. I was told on a Siemens forum that the data cables were designed for USB 2.0 ports. I have yet to try it on a computer with USB 2.0 ports.

    my computer has USB 2.0, so that's not the issue... I'm not sure what the issue could be, in all honesty. It's frustrating as all holy heck.

    No, the frequencies the phone uses is based on the hardware and not the firmware.

    Hilfe

    So I figured out the bootcore change but cannot seem to get the WinSwup flash to work. I DL the versions from siemensmania and try and flash the phone with them with the software involved/included but I keep getting a com port speed problem. I have used three different computers, two laptops and a desktop and cannot get this software to work. It will either have the Ack EOT error or simply after changing speeds in the serial configuration an error message will read "speed not available on com port."
    *I am unware how to change firmware with x65 flasher, if possible with WinSwup etc.

    Can someone please help with this flashing problem? I am quite frustrated coming this far with the bootcore change and not being able to get the S65 Firmware.

    thanks-

    Finally figured out the Winswup problem I was experiencing. Apparently this is quite an unstable programme and you need to play around with the power button a few different ways for it to work properly.

    But the scenario did work and I upgraded to Siemens official firmware after the winswup change. I am glad that headache is over-

    Thanks, Mr. K. I decided to give it another try and things are working out this time. What variant did you use?
