Hi!

I recently upgrade my Omnia II to Windows Mobile 6.5 from the Samsung Website.

The upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5 for Omnia 2 is now available on the official website of Samsung in some countries. You can only upgrade your phone through the website of Samsung in the country that is your OMNIA II came from (obviously, by official ways... you can find many other ways and roms here in Modaco comunity to upgrade to WM 6.5 no matter what country your phone came from). I will explain how I did it from the Singapure website...

How do you discover what country is your Omnia II? Go in "Settings", "Advanced Settings", "System", "Version", "Device". You will see three codes: PDA, CSC and PHONE. Everyone starts with I8000 (which is the code of Omnia 2). In CSC, see if the following 3 characteres (after the code I8000) are XSO, and in PHONE see if the two characteres following are DX. If so, your Omnia II came from Singapore (as well as mine).

You can find codes for the other countries here in the Modaco comunity, but I will post some codes that I find here for help you:

Codes for CSC (the 3 characteres after I8000):
ATO AUSTRIA
AUT SWITZERLAND
CNX ROMANIA
COA ROMANIA
CYO GREECE
DBT GERMANY
EUR GREECE
FOP SPAIN
HAT ROMANIA
IRD SLOVAKIA
ITV ITALY
MOB AUSTRIA
MOT SLOVENIA
MTL BULGARIA
OMX BULGARIA
ORO ROMANIA
PAN HUNGARY
PLS POLAND
PRO NETHERLANDS
PRT POLAND
SEB AUSTRIA
SEK UKRAINE
SER RUSSIA
SIM SLOVENIA
SMO SERBIA
SUN SWITZERLAND
SWC SWITZERLAND
TPH PORTUGAL
TRA CROATIA
VGR GREECE
VIP CROATIA
WIN ITALY
XEB BELGIUM
XEE SWEDEN
XEF FRANCE
XEH HUNGRARY
XEN NETHERLAND
XEO POLAND
XEP PORTUGAL
XEU UK
XEZ HUNGARY
XSO SINGAPORE

Codes for PHONE (the 2 characteres after I8000):
BD Greece
CP Finland
DB Vietnam
DC Thailand
DD India
DT Australia
DX Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam
DZ Malaysia, Singapore
JA South Africa
JC Algeria, Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Tunisia
JP Arabic
JR Arabic
JV Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Morocco, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia,South Africa, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey
MT Switzerland
XA Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland, United Kingdom
XB Denmark, Norway, Sweden
XC Portugal, Spain
XD Croatia, Czech, Hungary, Slovakia
XE Bulgaria, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine
XF Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania
XX Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom
ZC China, Hong Kong
ZH Hong Kong
ZT Taiwan

The 3 last characteres in PDA, CSC and PHONE:
* Release years:
D = 2004
E = 2005
F = 2006
G = 2007
H = 2008
I = 2009
* Release months:
A = January
B = February
C = March
D = April
E = May
F = June
G = July
H = August
I = September
J = October
K = November
L = December

So, if your Omnia 2 came from Singapore you can now upgrade to WM 6.5 by the official website of Samsung in Singapure (the site is in English, and the address is samsungmobile.com.sg). You will see a large banner in the homepage saying that the upgrade to WM 6.5 for OMNIA II is now available. Click there and download the software "Samsung PC Studio". Install it on your computer ... the system will ask you what language you want to install the program, then you can choose any language you want ... then after he will ask you what country is your phone, then you have to say that it's from Singapore! After you install just connect your Omnia 2 on the computer, open the program and follow the instructions that it will upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5 for you.

This official ROM of Windows Mobile 6.5 for Omnia 2 comes with "Asphalt 4" (a car game in high definition from Gameloft, where you control the car by the accelerometer of the phone) and with "Crayon Physics", another super cool game!

Hi.

Stupid question. What happens if the phone didn't came from Singapore and I try to upgrade it from the Samsung's Singapore website?
It should work for any country, doesn't it?

Thank you.

So, I've tried to upgrade my Omnia using this method and got the following error.
http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/1482/40687257.jpg

Tried it 3 times with no success, even after doing a hard reset on the phone and running PC Studio as administrator. I get the error right after if finishes downloading the update and unzipping it. My phone is unaffected since the upgrade doesnt even begin.

What could be the problem?? Huh?

Here are the phone specs.
http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/6574/60130523.jpg

Using Windows Vista Business 32, NPS 1.4.0 IK1 with Singapore as country and English UK as language.

I also noticed my CSC code is FAM (what country is that code from?). My PHONE code is the Singapore one (DX). I bought this phone in Italy (dunno where it came from originally).

Thanks in advance.

Are you able to try it from a XP machine?

I successfully updated mine with XP.

Or try right click on the NPS and choose compatibility with Windows XP. Undecided

Have no access to a XP computer right now  Sad
Gonna try with XP compatibility.

Edit: Tried with XP compatibility, same error. Sad

I installed with Singapore as the country and English UK as the language.

Connected via USB cable (both PC Studio and Windows Mobile Device Center recognize the phone perfectly, I can do backups, restore them, move files, etc)

The phone icon is not there because right during the error, when it begins intalling, my phone is turned off. I think the installer does that, my phone has 100% battery and I didnt touch any buttons or the touchscreen (or remove the cable obviously).

My PC (vaio laptop) is connected to a wireless Linksys router and that to a cable modem. It downloads, validates and extracts the update just fine. Also, firewall was turned off (both Windows and Comodo).

Thanks for the help!

most probable a compatibility issue with OS..
mine i was able to upgrade to a laptop(lenovo x58) too running xp pro sp3 but instead using a private ip i use a public one due to theres a restriction on downloading thru proxy(in my part)..
its normal during the installing process, the phone will turn off coz it will update the rom bios first then the OS..

I believe the problem lies with Windows Vista. I have tried on two windows vista PC many times without success. But it work flawlessly and upgrade immediately with windows XP.

I have been following this thread with interest.

Even though I reside in Australia, is it possible for me to upgrade my phone using the Singapore update?

You could just try installing the NPS, if there are no updates available it means you can't.

Hi, Im really interested of flashing my Bell Omnia 2 right now running on Bell's official WM6.5 to the official Samsung upgrade WM6.5 because I want to take off those network applications that Bell has installed, for me to have more free RAM and ROM memory.

My questions:
How much free memory (RAM/ROM) you guys have now after flashing the official WM6.5 upgrade from SAmsung?

Does it have the "Connection Set Up" application in the Settings for me to run and detect my local service provider set up?

Thanks.
