So Yeah For Anyone That Is Planning To Or Wants To Flash They're K550i To Make It Into A W610i Youve Come To The Right Place.
Flash at your own risk ! I don't know if this voids your warranty !
many say it does so be carefull!
my idea in that case is flash back to k550i using SEUS
You can get all files necessary at this website and other good stuff
the guide :
Your phone and the data cable that comes with k550i !!
Windows XP Service Pack2
Sony Ericsson Update Service (SEUS) TO UPDATE YOUR K550 TO CID52:
XS++ v 1.6.7
0: backup all contacts !! ( find a way, there are many ways, if u dont know stop right here this tut is not for u ) yes back up everything in phone..ur ringtones etc.etc
1. First upadate your phone via SEUS.
Reason XS++ supports CID52 flashing and SEUS will update your phone to CID52
this is easy just follow the onscreen instructions
dont worry this is absoultely safe and works great ! and this does not void warranty
Flashing Main :
2. Now the real flashing
Turn off your phone. Start XS++ . Select USB
Remove the SIM and Memory Card . Reinsert battery.
Click on connect in XS++ and then holding C ( as in SEUS upadate ) connect your phone to the USB cable ( with in 30 seconds )
it gets detected then release the C key
The left screen will display your phone details including your firmware version and EROM CID which should be CID52. OTP CID should be 51.
now in configuration, select flash. In the new screen, check on Flash Main Firmware Click ‘…’ and select the frmware file
( keep other options unchecked)
hit the flash button and relax !! it will show finished after loading
when done Exit XS++ and disconnect phone
well u can now start your phone no problems( insert sim first)...it will start
now again plzz shut down and remove sim
Now Flashing FS:
now restart XS++...reinsert battery...remove sim
connect the phone ( usual method holding c key etc ect )
now select this FS 'K550_R6BC002_FS_CENT_EUROPE_RED52.fbn'
( unrar it first of course and get the .fbn file )
check flash FS option !!
keep other option unchecked and hit flash !!
after its done just restart xs++ and reinsert battery
this time u can't start u r phone u will get an error
now finally customization
connect phone ( usual process )
unzip the customization pack
you will find a folder named "tpa" in it
now in xs++ directory on PC, in the directory where u have xs++.exe create a new folder named "own_custpack"
copy the "tpa" folder into this "own_custpack" folder the path of custom files should be like own_custpack/tpa/preset/custom...
open xs++ and connect fone check only customize file system
now goto settings and select BreakXS ( important )
go back to FLASH
now under fone model select 'Own Custpack'
under CDA and Region, select '/own_custpack'
now hit flash...
now in few minutes custom files will be added to your phone and done
Start your phone wait for some time !!
