Verifying Integrity of Firmwares. Especially CID53

Many CID53 Firmwares don’t work properly and have bad headers. You can’t flash such a firmware into your phone.

There may be many problems in a firmware. And recently many CID53 when used with jdflasher output the following error or something similar.

PutFiles<putfile<putfile_flash<flashbabe<flashbabe<header<send header error 15>>>>>

Hence its better to check the firmware before you flash it.
You can check it using the program babeck. Its basically babe-check. babe is SE standard firmware header.
Download babeck. Babeck can be used to check any sony ericsson firmware.

Instructions on how to use babeck.exe.

Its pretty simple. Its a command line tool. So you will have to use DOS. FIrst copy babeck.exe and the cid53 firmware main_firmware.mbn and fs_firmware.fbn to C:\

  1. Click Strart in Windows XP.
  2. Go to RUN.
  3. Type cmd, and hit enter.
  4. Type CD\ and hit enter.
  5. Now type babeck.exe main_fimware.mbn and hit enter.
  6. If babeck.exe shows error then the firmware is not usable.
