JdFlasher Flashing/Customization Tutorial

This tutorial discuses flashing firmware/de-branding/customization with JDflasher.

JD Flasher flasher is now full fledged flashing and patching tool. It supports db2010, db2012, db2020 flashing and patching all CIDs. PNX5230 only flashing is supported. For A2 phones check out A2uploader. You can find out about phone platform from the phone database.

You can thus perform all customizations like uploading flash menus, acoustics, walkman skins etc.

Quick Tutorial on how to use JDFlasher.

First Install USB Flash Driver.

Installing JD Flasher: Download Far Manager, either from official website or from here. Install Far manager, then copy JD Flasher folder to Plugins folder in Far Manager.
OR Download The Ready To Use JDFlasher+Far Manager !

Connecting phone to JDflasher.

  1. Shutdown phone.
  2. Start Far Manger.
  3. Press Alt+F1, select JDflasher.
  4. In script, choose a phone if available else choose script as db2010/db2020.
  5. Speed select the max, and port is DCU-60 as always.
  6. Hit Jump Down Into a Large Rabbit hole.
  7. Reinsert battery.
  8. Connect phone holding C.
  9. Wait for Initialization.

Once you connected you will get at least 2 options and maximumย  of 4 options depending upon your phone and depending upon the entry script. All phones will get ofs/oflash. The four options are,

  1. oflash >> Regular FW Flashing Mode to flash firmware/debrand/Crossflash.
  2. ofs >> Usual Far Manager usage mode to upload thing to FS
  3. bfs >> breakin FS mode with FS read.
  4. bflash >> breakin FW flashing mode used for vkp and mod babe flash.

Double click the correct option to enter the correct mode of operation.

Note on Exit: In order to successfully shutdown phone and disconnect, you just move to the root by clicking option at the top, and finally at the root folder JDflasher will ask if you want to quit. Always exit correctly, else all changes made will be lost.

Using JDFlasher !
Oflash/Flashing for Firmware/Debranding/flashing vkp etc.
  1. Start JDflasher.
  2. Connect phone to JdFlasher as said above.
  3. Enter oflash mode.
  4. On right side navigate to firmware location on computer.
  5. Select firmware in the right side.
  6. Press F5.
  7. Click Copy.
  8. Then Ensure that the option flash as babe image is selected. (babe for firmwares, mbn, fbn)
  9. Click “Yeah Flash it”.
  10. Wait for flashing of all blocks to complete.

You can flash main/fs using jdflasher. To debrand the phone flash both the main and fs. Also remember after flashing FS you need to add the CDA. Download CDA and copy them to tpa/preset/custom using ofs. If you forget to add the cda files to phone fs using ofs then you will end up getting a Configuration Error.


  1. Start Jdflasher.
  2. Select script.
  3. Connect phone as told.
  4. Enter ofs.
  5. Navigate in the file system and upload files according.

  8. To exit from OFS you should move to Root by clicking ! They finally click ok and exit jdflasher.

Important NOTES:

Note db2010 users: Make sure that the REST file for your phone is present in JDflasher Rest Directory. If not just use the mkrest2.exe to make the rest file. Just Drag your MAIN MBN file on mkrest2 to get the REST file for your phone. Mkrest2 is given with JDflasher in REST folder.

Note db2020 users: If you use any of the breaking methods while using db2020 script then you will have to re flash main firmware always before exit.

Bfs/Breakin FS: Is same as ofs but with FS read, which means you can copy files from phone FS to your computer.
Bflash/Breaking Flash: Used to apply patches, can be used to flash firmware also. Now a quick tutorial to apply patches for db2010, The tutorial to apply patches for db2020 is bit different please refer here.
  1. Connect phone.
  2. Enter Bflash.
  3. Navigate to patch on right side.
  4. Hit F5.
  5. Click Copy.
  6. Ensure the option flash as vkp is selected
  7. Click Yeah flash it.
  8. Wait for patch flash.
  9. Then apply more patches.
  10. Then Exit by moving to root.
If you wanted to remove a patch, select the patch that you had applied, press F5, Click copy, then you will find the usual options and also a option to check/select remove patch. Select the option and hit yeah flash it.

  1. Hetty McCarthy says

    thanks for this tutorial

    for some reason i can’t access my file system :S

    it says something about a set directory and bad answer

    please help! ๐Ÿ™

  2. Peti says

    Are flash drivers installed?

  3. Hetty McCarthy says

    im not sure – im not completely sure what they are

  4. Hetty McCarthy says

    im pretty sure i have them already cause the reason im using this in the first place is cause i updated my phone with SEUS and turned it into CID53

  5. Peti says

    Then maybe this is an outdated version of JDFlasher, which does not support CID 53 yet. Then obtain the newest JDFlasher and try with it. ( maybe)

  6. Hetty McCarthy says

    its already the latest one – it detects my phone unlike the older version i also have

    do you know if the battery has to be fully charged? mine was like 97% or something – im sure it wouoldn’t have made a difference but its the only thing i can think of that might be wrong..

  7. Peti says

    It has to be over 40% or so. Under that it might get unstable. But that is also rare.
    Now you should clearly tell what you are doing. Which buttons you click and what are selected in the comboboxes.

  8. Peter says


    w810 – battery ok – phone not turning on – got the following:


    is this the tutorial to do this?


  9. Peti says

    You have two options.
    1. Get a REST file for your current FW (which I couldn’t fount by the way), open your phone in FAR Manager, select FLASH dir, and upload the rest file there.
    2. Reflash main as it is.

  10. Rahul says

    Hey akshay n peti.well can i upgrade my oldest firmware w830i to the latest(to remove sum bugs like restarting n operation failed etc) without using seus as it adds cid53,what files i need can you give direct links(ps:em loser at searching :().em comp. New to this concept,plz tell in detail.moreover i wanted to add acoustics but not at the cost of a deadphone.


    CDA102721/1R3ACXC1250714 now.plz…. ..!

  11. Peti says

    If you are lucky, your phone is CID 52. If not, you can find a tutorial with which you can updgrade it from 49/51 to 52.
    I suggest reading the K550-W610 crossflash tutorial, it writes about the procedure pretty much. The files you need should be available at,,…

  12. Rahul says

    Umm.!u didnt get me peti,i wanted to ask that firmware available on net is KG and my is GB can i upgrade the new1.ok files i need kg main,kg fs and which custpack(should fs and custpack match).i read operation failed tut which says in last that it is better to take it 2 SE service to fix the prob in 5 min.wont it convert ph to cid53. but i wanted2 modd.(em afraid of bricking My ph,nor in a cond. 2 buy new 1,neither can live without 1.)mistake while flashin can kill my ph.?eagerly waitin 4 ur help.detailed1

  13. Peti says

    Oh that… it doesn’t matter which main & fs you flash on, it has to be for w830, but that’s it.
    The custpack is not firmware version dependent, only the region (ASIA_LEVAN) matters.
    I don’t have files for that region, but try searching or…

  14. Pank says

    when i enter into 0fs mode it gives an error like
    — wrong answer… someting
    i cant understand
    my phone is w610i and cid 53
    plz can u help me ?
    i want to add flash themes , change cam , display and sound driver.. plz help me.

  15. Akshay says

    hey pank.
    choose your phone correctly. what is your phone ?
    db2020 ?
    then in the starting choose script as db2020.

  16. Pank says

    yes i did that,
    i detects the phone but when i enter into ofs mode it gives an error.
    should i hold c button while entering into ofs mode??

  17. Akshay says

    ok thanks for that info.
    i just now tried it on my k550@w610 CID52 its working.

    so you say its not working for CID53…??
    download the recovery files from here and put them in.

    thanks for informing this. updating the Jdflasher download.
    new one should work fine.

  18. Pank says

    where is the updated Jdflasher??
    Is it the same link??
    JdFlasher +Far Manager///
    above link??

  19. Akshay says

    fixed now should work. tested on k800

  20. Akshay says

    yes its the same download link… i updated it.

  21. Pank says

    Thanx man… that worked.. ๐Ÿ™‚
    And tell me, can i copy my phones original drivers to my pc??

  22. Peti says

    Wtih JDFlasher, after Quick-Acccess Patch is applied, you can. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. Pank says

    Is it possible to apply Quick-Acccess Patch to CID53 phone??
    And i want to change accoustics of my phone then without Quick-Acccess Patch should i delete and copy new one instead???

  24. Akshay says

    hey pank you download a CID52 FS.. and extract it.
    that’s the way to backup contents of FS.

    CID53 firmware i don’t have them.
    they are available at

    you can’t apply patches for CID53………!! so no quick access.
    to change acoustics just overwrite old acoustics with new one.

  25. Hassan says

    I used jus da flasher and i can’t get bfs option..

  26. Akshay says

    that depends on the script and phone type.
    i have said that all phones don’t get all options

  27. Pank says

    hey akshay…
    can u tell me which is the best display driver for W610i…
    can i use w580i display driver???
    if yes where can i get that?

  28. Pank says

    and also best cam driver for w610i
    photos in night mode sucks. even w700i photos r very good in comparision to w610i night mode.

  29. Rahul says

    Hey akshay AAC FORMAT is not playing on w830i oldest firmware ok if there is some bitrate settings please tell me.
    Can you also give a link to a super audio converter which converts all formats into all.if no link atleast tell the name.!

  30. Rahul says

    I mean does walkman player 2 .0 supports aac and eaac+ ,as they say store 1000 songs in eaac+ FORMAT… Blah blah blah.

  31. Rahul says

    Hey A n P.reply to my ques. Atleast!

  32. DEEP says

    the jd flasher i installed doesnt have bfs option ……..
    is there any way i can get bfs option ???

  33. DEEP says

    how do i make a backup of my orignal k530i sound drivers ????

    i dont want to make the backup by extracting fs ……..
    is der ny other way ??????????
    can i use xs to do dat ??

  34. DEEP says

    how do i make a backup of my orignal k530
    sound drivers …………..
    i dont want 2 do it by xtracting fs ……….
    can it be done via bfs option in jdflasher ??????
    can xs be used for making backup ???

  35. Akshay says

    Pank .. no idea.
    DEEP… as i said in tutorial… all phones won’t get all options. Read tutorial carefully.. it says what JD flasher supports for what phones right in beginning.

    extracting is best method. else apply QA and then using QA use bfs. see jdflasher patching tutorial.

    Rahul .. am not sure about your questions.

  36. G-Why says

    Hello, iโ€™ve got a little problem with my k550i, I flashed it to w610i, but then I would to update the software via SE Update Service, and now it Iโ€™ve got the k550i firmware (with cybershot, no-walkmanโ€ฆ), but SEtool2lite says that my phone is in w610i CID:53โ€ฆ So I would know if I can flash it again to w610i to get a REAL w610i ?


  37. Akshay says

    now just flash in w610 CID53 firmwares into that phone. that will fix everything…
    for now i don’t have w610 CID53 firmwares… so sorry.

  38. abu bakr says

    hi mr akshay your tutorial about the patching was i want to ask i have upgrade my k810i to cid 53 you know what i mean can i flash k850i firmware in it if so can you tell me where can i find the tutorial if not so when it will become available please answer my question my email address is [email protected] i am waiting for your reply

  39. abu bakr says

    sorry mr akshay my email address is [email protected] please ans me at this email address i am waiting for your reply

  40. Akshay says

    well both phones are different hardware and different technologies.. so you can’t make k810 to k850.. sorry.

  41. G-Why says


    Iโ€™ve got a little problem with my k550i, I flashed it to w610i, but then I would to update the software via SE Update Service, and now it Iโ€™ve got the k550i firmware (with cybershot, no-walkmanโ€ฆ), but SEtool2lite says that my phone is in w610i CID:53โ€ฆ So I would know if I can flash it again to w610i to get a REAL w610i ? And if yes, how ?


    If you could answer here or this forum :
    Or via my e-mail adress : [email protected]

  42. Akshay says

    ok now just relax… there is no problem in the phone. its ok
    now if you want to flash the phone to w610i you will need w610 CID53 firmwares. which i don’t have.
    you have to buy CID53 w610 firmwares. or try to download them from
    you can flash the CID53 firmwares into the k550 using JDflasher.

  43. G-Why says

    So I can use the JDflasher to flash my phone to w610 CID53 ?

    If yes with which firmware ?

  44. Akshay says

    R6BC002 Red 53.
    download main and fs
    FS which has french language.
    CDA is same old one.

  45. G-Why says

    Main Generic ?

    And what is CDA ?

    And what’s about the Custom ?

  46. Peti says

    That’s it, this site needs a FAQ!!
    Main is the main firmware, contains the software parts. Generic means that it can be used anywhere.
    CDA=Custpack, necessary for customization, contains settings, languages for example.

  47. Goth says

    Well akshay i hav w830i via modding can i increase the quality of my display like more colours and brightness,what it needs patching or display drivers.tell me.!

  48. Peti says

    It’s display drivers…

  49. Goth says

    And where do i get them from,peti.also tell where to paste them and how and which ones are best 4 increasing colours and brightness.

  50. Peti says

    It’s ifs/settings/display directory, and the filename is dispdriver0.dat.
    It is hard to find w830 drivers, I could only find this:

  51. G-Why says

    thx Peti, you’re right for the FAQ ๐Ÿ˜€

  52. Peti says

    But Akshay didn’t make it. :'( ๐Ÿ˜€

  53. Akshay says

    ok we will do it.. not a big deal.
    actually creating another page creates problem in template
    so this time this page will be hidden in page links
    but the link to FAQ will be put in sidebar.
    am creating that page.. .start filling it.

  54. Peti says

    I also started writing a page with Sony Ericsson architectures, like K550 is DB2020 and so… But it got deleted somehow. :S

  55. MANnDAaR says

    hiiiiiiiiii akshay.
    i m creating a new blogsite[off course not as big as urs].IF U DONT MIND???? MAY I ADD UR WEBSITE LINK UNDER TUTORIAL CATEGORY????? coz there are very few indian sites on customizing.look at the .ru sites?????????so even i want to be a small part of it.but as an INDIAN.
    please neglect if u dont like my idea….SORRY….

  56. ar2r says

    i’ve tried to use jdflasher but after point 7 # Click Copy.
    # Then Ensure that the option flash as babe image is selected.

    the option flash as a babe is grayed out so i cannot check it

    tried on two k800i cid 53 phones
    any ideas ???
    pls help

  57. Peti says

    It may be an old edition?
    You must use MBN file for flashing, check if it is packed in rar/zip, if so, unpack it.

  58. TK says

    Hy Akshay!
    Can you tell me please can I mode my K550i (cid53 of course) to w610 with this software W610_R8BA024_MAIN_GENERIC_NA_RED53 with that method what you wrote on this site (simply overwrite as I understood) ???

  59. Peti says

    Yes, this will work all right. Overwriting is not correct though, these are not real files on the phone, so you don’t overwrite, you flash chips. ๐Ÿ˜€

  60. Pavoo says

  61. Akshay says

    ^^ download the latest jdflasher. it works.
    I am pretty sure this is latest.

  62. Peti says

    Then what is for? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  63. Akshay says

    well that link was in the tutorial itself.
    you update it.
    i was lazy to find out the new links.

  64. Akshay says

    now in blue is awesome.
    why not make a post saying that its now beome cool so that traffic goes high.

  65. BadDuck says

    Hey there. I have a question.

    I had a locked phone to three.

    I read a a tutorial how to flash the phone and followed it. Thus I was only interesting in unlokcing it.

    I downloaded main and fs firmware and flash it with setoool2lite. using a a patch file as well that I got from simlockpathgen tool when I did it on the downloaded main firmware.

    all was good, but the phone sa “contact network provider, cinfiguarion error” when I started my phone later.

    then I went to SE original update service and updated the phone there, so now I have cid53.

    I cant use any ordinary programs to put in the downloaded firmware anymore because of cid53. is there any way I can solve this problem and flash my hpone so it works and isnt locked.

    the problem with the configuration error on display has spomething to do with the CAD “custom pack” wasnt installd. beacuse there was an option I couldnt pick in xs++ tools like it said in the tutorial so I gacve up, ended in trying SE update tool and fucked it all up.

  66. Pavoo says

    still don’t work… the same error

    error: PutFiles(putfile(putfile_flash(flashbabe(header(send header error 15)))))

  67. Akshay says

    that sucks.. no idea

    can you try flashing in a w610 firmware in that phone and using some other firmware.

    download jdflasher from and try again.
    this time don’t add the recovery files..

    use only test 1 and test 2
    just google search jdflasher se-nse.

  68. Akshay says

    badduck… you are identified as SPAM.. by the SYSTEM,
    thankfully i could manually make out and retain your comment.

    next time use a working email id….

    now you can’t unlock that phone.
    only flashing/debranding/customization.

    you should now download CDA files and then copy the CDA files to correct location
    basically the customize.xml and preloaded congif xml files


    copy it using JDFlasher OFLASH option. Using Db2020 script.

    phone should start.

  69. Pavoo says

    omg still don’t work darn it…… i just want to freeing(unbrand) my K550i CID53………. ๐Ÿ™

  70. Akshay says

    you report that to den_po in se-nse.
    he will help you with new loaders.

  71. Peti says

    Newest JDFlasher and

  72. Jbrown832 says

    Hi Akshay. When I try and copy the firmware i get the error message… “PutFiles<putfile<putfile_flash<flashbabe<header>>>>

    Could you email me at [email protected] if you have a solution?

    Thanks mate

  73. Peti says

    Try flashing with XS++.
    (sent in mail, too)

  74. Dhaval says

    How can i install flash menus & themes on k790i?

  75. Peti says

    K790 doesn’t support flash menus. So you can’t.

  76. jinJun says

    Also remember after flashing FS you need to add the CDA. but where i get the CDA ? my phone is k810

  77. Peti says

    Try You can modify a CDA to a different region.

  78. akshay says

    hai akshay and peti me also akshay

  79. Akshay says

    w200 ?? oh that’s really bad
    sorry to tell you JDflasher does not has db2010 and db2012 CID53 Flash loaders.

    It has only db2020 CID53 flash loaders. so your phone won’t work with JDflasher.

  80. Prapul says


    Akshay plz help me out iam using k530i cid 53

  84. Peti says

    @ Chan: what is the filename of your FS?
    @ bhuvan: no big deal. It happened to me too. You have to delete walkman settings file. From TPA\SYSTEM\multimedia\MP if I remember correctly.

  85. Prapul says

  90. nghdoa says

    Hay…Mr. How about patching n crossflashing K750 CID 49 RED to W800, i want use R1BD001 firmware, can i use jdflasher to flashing it? How to do that? Is there must use Gslide to sliding/changing the block firmware to 344 bloks before flasing the MAIN n FS as a toturial using Phone XS? or directly flashing/using the W800 firmware n FS ?

    Thanks in advance…:)

  91. Akshay says


    Well if your phone is CID49 then use CID49 firmwares only. Any CID49 will do.

    and please use XS++ to flash phone to w800.
    because its CID49.
    its easier using XS++

  92. akshay krishna says

    hai akshay when i updated in seus my cid changed into 53. and my phone is w200i . i used jd flasher latest

  93. Peti says

    XS++ doesn’t support CID53 phones, JDFlasher does, though I’m not sure about w200 CID53… give it a try.

  94. akshay krishna says

    will the upcoming version of xs++ support db2010 w200 cid 53

  95. akshay krishna says

    what is roadies battle ground

  96. Peti says

    No one knows if it will support it or not.

  105. Cristy says

    I have a big problem. I have W880 orange branded & unlocked. Previously I had the R6xxx firmware with CID51 (I think)..I updated my phone firmware to the latest R8BA024 via SEUS, and now I have CID53. I know I can’t unlock my phone yet, but I really want to debrand it for free…I’ve tried with jd flasher but I think the flash files were corrupted (checked them with babeck and gave me an error)..where I can find some good flash files ? Tried share4flash and other few websites but no luck…PLZ help me with some W880 cid53 flash files (main+fs)..really need them…

  106. Cristy says

    Sorry, wanted to say branded & locked (on orange)

  107. Peti says

    Try and
    Or try and download from there, but it will cost some euros.

  108. Akshay says

    and also this place.

    and this is best bet.

Next i’m using setool2lite11 the error said Can’t load rest file (like this ‘R1BD001_CXC1250092_EU_1_CA’ i’m forget to save the log) but finisning done n go flashing main till complete at CDA but i’m not sure it a good process because was said some error at processing main..i try to using jdflasher (choose bflash as your tutorial but the error at flasinh main on finishing to, the error was : PutFiles(putfile(putfile_flash(flashbabe(get89data(bad 89header))))) . I want to try flashing using jdflasher coz i’m never try flashing using it but i can’t understand about the error.

  111. Peti says

    I have crossflashed two K750s to W800, both were like this, don’t worry. Use XS++ to flash and click stop at finishing flash. They are both working fine.
    I was also looking for R1BD001 (W800) REST file, but no success. :S I think may have it.

  112. Dhaval says

    i want to change k790i’s mediaplayer skin.I want to turn it into walkman. What should I do?

  113. Peti says

    You have to create a SYSGFX patch with Magister’s BD2020 ImageTool. You can find tutorial on this site to create and to apply a patch like that.

  114. Dani says

    An k550im is(db2020 cid 53).when I would make the telephone join to the program issues it with a sick-note:

    “OpenPlugin(connecttophone(getcid(cant find device info in xml (53red)))”

    What should I do?:(

  115. Peti says

    Do you reinsert the battery?

  116. Akshay says

    dani, jdflasher is not installed properly.
    do it…………………

    because jdflasher is not able to find correct script.
    the script is db2020 cid53.
    db2020.xml should be present in there.

  117. Dani says

    With a what kind of button I know it vรกltoztatni?(db2020-ra)Mert the I can jump between the characteristics only with a button downwards.I cannot modify how is needed?

    Apology for the idiotic question.

  118. Akshay says

    i did not understand you.
    can you ask again ?? please.
    select db2020 script and max speed. and go.

  119. Dani says

    How let me position it the db 2020? My gender db 2012 ointments who and I cannot modify it.How let me modify it?

  120. Peti says

    Are you Hungarian by any chance?
    K550im is DB2020. Download JDFlasher and its DB2020 archives from (I uploaded the newest available.) Use that.

  121. Dani says

    yes,I’m Hungarian. After I open it JDflasher throws a window out.I cannot place it in on the window there the db 2020 the db instead of 2012.How I can portray it?

  122. Dani says

    Me is Magyar vagy?

  123. Dani says


  124. Peti says

    // szerinted? ๐Ÿ˜€ imรกdnรฉk most magyarul beszรฉlni de az oldal angol. az magyar rรฉszรฉn lehet. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    So as I said, download the JDFlasher packages from and use them, they are working.

  125. Dani says

    Where is the Hungarian part of the side? I only English topics lรกttam.

  126. bhuvan says

    hiiiiii and a warm hug 2 akshayy n peti both!!!
    any ways my problem is….i am having w580i with cid:53….so only jd flasher helps me in uploading stuff 2 file system….now d problem which arises is this that when ever i copy a file or rename a file of my fs…..jd flasher says””DONT KNOW HOW TO READ THE FILE””….n the dialog box appears fr less then a second!!!!
    thnkss in advanced!!!!

  127. SHASHI says

    Hi friends i just wanna share some thing which i noticed may be it’s known but still i flashed my K550@W610 back to K550 doing every thing and my phone became brand new but in bluetooth device list old list were still there none of other things remained just thought you would like to know

  128. Peti says

    @Dani: is our forum. Please don’t use both languages here, only English.
    @bhuvan: not hard to see why. Downloading files from FS with JDFlasher is only possible on CID52 after Quick-Access patch. On CID 53 there is no such things, so you can’t copy stuff to pc from it. For a few months from now, it will be possible then. Renaming is that JDFlasher doesn’t know which command to send… so I’d love to help, but not possible yet.
    @SASHI: so GDFS stores them, as well as tasks. Strange, tasks erase when you reflash… ๐Ÿ˜€

  129. Dani says

    I wrote on the in Hungarian.

  130. SHASHI says

    Hi peti pls suggest me a cam driver which is currently the best around. I an not afraid to try extreme cam drivers

  131. Peti says

    Well it is very hard to find a good driver, I could never do it. ๐Ÿ˜€
    The original K550 driver has very good colors but bad quality. I had a great cam driver with wrong colors. Now I switched to Number1 3.0 cam driver. It seems pretty good, give it a try.

  132. shashi says

    from where i can get this cam driver no13

  133. Peti says

    It took a while to find it….

  134. Bdo says

    I know this has been asked -in part- a million times but I just got my K550i yesterday and really want to do the K550i@W610 thing with it.

    The phone is CID53 – Wish I hadn’t done the SEUS:(

    I’m worried about not having a backup of the GDFS because I want to be able to get back to a nice’n’fresh K550i if I screw up any flashing.

    Can JDFlasher now backup a CID53 GDFS?

    Can I just say also, I had no idea there was such a healthy phone modding scene and both Akshay and Peti, you are top class.

  135. Bdo says

    Manndaar seems to think CID53 GDFS Backup is possible. Link here –>

    The ‘FLASH’ part of his tutorial freeks me out a little.

  136. Akshay says

    Jdflasher can’t backup anything
    its ok not a big deal….. nothing to worry.

  137. Bdo says

    Do you think it’s a good idea to go ‘w610’ firmware without a GDFS backup?

  138. Akshay says

    yeah no problem.
    but you don’t do wrong things…

    and not to worry people do wrong things only on SeTool 2lite.
    its impossible to do wrong things in jdflasher.

  139. Dani says

    W610_R6BC002_MAIN_GENERIC_NA_RED53.rar and W610_R6BC002_FS_EUROPE_4_RED53.rar. What kind of custom pack is needed?

  140. Dani says

    Measured you ask the same one at twice?

  141. Akshay says

    obviously use any EUROPE 4 CDA
    just see in the CDA name.. it will be long but it will have europe 4 in it.

  142. Akshay says

    and what’s all the drama, batman..
    you got 2 identities ? like all super heroes..
    first you are dani, then you need to save the world/or your phone so you become batman.. LOL !!

  143. Dani says

    Apology but I may not have omitted it jogy let me talk with myself.:))
    I and batman…xD

  144. Akshay says

    LOL it was cool, entertainment here.

  145. sprk007 says

    @Akshayy,i flashed z310 cid52 with R1JC002 main & FS.but it seems,network lokd still!how can i unlock that…&where2 get custpack for R1JC002…Plz help man ๐Ÿ™‚

  146. Akshay says

    sorry that phone is not supported for unlocking .
    wait for db2010 or db2012 CID52 free patching

  147. ash says

    can i flashing my k850?

  148. ElRol says

    i can’t select “as a babe image”…. help!!!

  149. Akshay says

    ash.. wait for some more time.
    k850 free flashing will be implemented.
    hmm may be the firmware is not a babe image.
    or try to use keyborad carefully.
    or the mouse..

    strange you can’t select it..
    what are you actually trying to do ?

  150. Matt Tilley says

    i have a W580I CID53 but i have no idea what firmware to use to debrand it:S could someone please help me out? [email protected]

  151. ElRol says

    i have a w580 CID 53 and i was following the tutorial:

    Connect phone
    Enter oflash mode.
    On right side navigate to firmware location on computer.
    Select firmware in the right side.
    Press F5.
    Click Copy.
    Then Ensure that the option flash as babe image is selected.

    here, the option flash as a babe can’t be selected…. why could that be?

  152. Akshay says

    Matt Tilley
    You should use GENERIC CID53 Firmware to de-brand.
    May be the flash as babe image is selected as default and can’t be changed.
    just check it out once.
    If so then just continue.
    Post a screenshot.. let me see.. what’s the problem there with you.

    When i flashed i had all options open.

  153. Scott says

    I had to send my W580i in for warranty repair recently. Before that time, the firmware on the phone was a CID52 variety and I could easily flash it/debrand it with another CID52 variety. However, since I sent it in, it is now a CID53. My question is can I flash it back to a debranded CID52 from the now CID53 version. I want to do this because I have tons of patches and such made specifically for the CID52.

  154. Peti says

    No, you can’t, CID can’t be downgraded.

  155. Scott says

    The other thing I heard is that in order to debrand a CID53 phone using JDFlasher, the phone must first be unlocked. Is this true. My phone is currently locked with AT&T/Cingular and I never had problems before when it was CID52, I was wondering if something has changed.

  156. Alvin says

    Scott – No, the CID53 W580 doesn’t have to be unlocked in order to debrand with JDFlasher.

  157. Peti says

    Yes, Scott, Alvin is right, besides, it can’t be patch-unlocked yet… (so no free unlocking at the moment)

  158. Victor says

    Hi ppl, I’m new to these things and could use some help, I have a w380 and I’m trying to apply a camera mod, I installed the usb driver and followed the tutorial, but when I try to acess/ enter / wtv (bad english here) the ofs I get this message after all the loading:


    where did I screw up? D:

  159. Peti says

    Maybe used a bad script. But for beginners, I suggest using XS++ FSX. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  160. Victor says

    I would, but my phone is cid53, XS++ can’t handle that yet can it?

    thanks for the supor anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

  161. Victor says

    suport* xO

  162. Peti says

    Does it happen that the phone just disconnects from the pc when you use MyPhoneExplorer? Due to bad cable?

  163. sprk007 says

    why cant i log in @ share2flash?i reinstalled xp,but explorer says “the page cant be displayed”…:( whats the problem guys?can ne1 tell me?

  164. Peti says

    The problem is that you don’t use Mozilla Firefox. Also your internet connection may not be ok.

  165. Victor says

    Actually I never used MyPhoneExplorer ._.

    I’m sure it isn’t a bad script because I used DBCIDExplorer so I could figure that my phone is pnx5230 CID53, it lists the folders and everything when I access ofs but then after the popup question “warning: are you sure?” it just stays on the “Preparing files list” forever and then gives me that time exceeded error โ€œGetFindData<getdir<send89data<IOusb::dcu_WriteData>>>โ€

    (I forgot the time exceed part in the other post o\)

    So, maybe I just screw up when installing the driver (I tried with SEUS too, same result), or just a noob mistake like “you have to have MyPhoneExplorer installed dumbass! D<”

    but it can’t be the cable, it has 3 days of life the little one ._.

  166. Victor says

    โ€œGetFindData<getdir<send89data<IOusb::dcu_WriteData >>โ€**

    yeah, I didn’t forget, it got vanished u_u

  167. Victor says

    Ok, I give up, but I swear I typed a “<time exceed” after the WriteData o___o

  168. Peti says

    I don’t get it either, it is supported by JDFlasher. Is it the newest release?

  169. Victor says

    Yes, as far as I know.

    I downloaded it from this tut. ;/

    I’ll try to do it on another pc to see what happens.

  170. Victor says

    Solved, I don’t know how but it works now o__o

    Thanks for the attention and sorry for all the trouble ._.

  171. Ivarr says

    at step 7 it says, `Click Copy. ` but when i click copy it says `error canยดt read the file`…:S?

  172. DiggiD says


    I am trying to debrand my w580i with CID53. I got last week from AT&T. I am following the tutorial above for JDflasher. It says to add the CDA. What is “CDA”? Can I still debrand this phone after so many reported problems? Thanks

  173. Peti says

    @Ivarr: copy from PC to phone, not in reverse.
    @Diggid: You can. CDA (aka custpack) is the name of a few files you must upload after the phone’s fs is flashed. The most important of them is customize.xml. You get “Configuration Error” is you don’t upload them.

  174. DiggiD says

    Thanks Peti. Where can I downloads these CDA files?

  175. Yogesh says

    @DiggiD. Check out the download section of There u will get the names of the sites where u can download ur CDA

  176. amigo says

    is it true that you can also patch k700i FW? how should i do that? when i buy my k700i last 2006 i didn’t notice any USB cable with it. i also have another question but it’s out of topic. I’ve downloaded some screensavers and save it on my k800i phone but it isn’t moving. gif files are suppose to be animated right? so what seems to be the problem with my phone. i’ve noticed that the only gif files that are animated in my phone are the preinstalled gif files. somebody please help me!! btw my phone is CID53.

  177. k550i rox says

    hey man i got cid 53 can u explain me the rules so my phone dont fuk plz thank u cause my friend had cid53 and after all the warnings u put he flashed is phone the screen is white so i dont want that to happen to mine cause im more mature lol

  178. jh says

    how do you flash the CDA after you have flashed the FS

  179. Akshay says

    For CID53 you can’t apply patches.
    No k800 has gif support. Please check.

    K550i Rox.
    Just follow this tutorial its all safe

    Download the CDA files. Copy all the contents of CDA to tpa/preset/custom using OFS. that’s all.
    this is how you falsh CDA.

  180. TOmmmyyy says

    Updating with SEUS was a huge mistake. Anyway, follow this tutorial, it will help.
    Get W610 CID 53 firmwares (main & fs) from, or any place. Use them to flash your phone.

  182. alex says

    hi, i have a cid53 k810i

    i can flash main+fs alright, but when i try to get into the “ofs”, it wont let me access the directory giving me errors like “time exceed” “bad 89data” and other weird errors..

  183. k550i rox says

    so i can just do the main cause thats all i want to do and like can i use xs++ or do i have to use other one

  184. k550i rox says

    and also wondering can i use the one i downloaded from the xs++ tutorial the main folder W610_R6BC002_MAIN_GENERIC_NA_RED5

  185. Peti says

    @alex: strange and shouldn’t happen. Did you try only once? Try again, if still not working, you can try connecting with 2+5 instead of C.
    @k550i rox: you can only use JDFlasher on CID53, firmwares must be RED53.

  186. alex says

    ok after trying a few more times, i was able to copy the custpack onto it…

    now when it turn it on it stays white and vibrates twice. im sure its the erom…

    is there any way to fix erom on cid53

  187. Peti says

    No, no way with free tools. :S
    Then try flashing a different main and fs on the phone.

  188. k550i rox says

    oh i fixed mine with seus the applications and games problem is because u pulled ur phone off the cable while downloading to it which damges the gdfs seus formats gdfs and updates

  189. k550i rox says

    i went fuk it and tried the to flash with xs++ main works perfectly cid53 dont mean shiot now i think its updated but i did not do custom pak or fs

  190. the k550i guru says

    can anyone plz give me links to get the fs and custom paks plus main plz thanx

  191. Peti says

    @rox: xs++ doesn’t support flashing CID53 phones, SEUS was a big mistake.
    @guru: do you know what the word guru means? I guess not. Why not check out the download page?

  192. the k550i guru says

    wheres that and also is there a english video on how to do this i opend jd flasher and mate this is a very confusing cmd program

  193. Peti says

    Look at the first line of the page, Home – Download – Contact – About.
    We only have video of FAR Manager-SEFP.

  194. TOmmmyyy says

    k550i rox
    how can i play games and applications again ?

  195. Peti says

    You can move them to memory stick. Then reflash main and fs and custpack. Then from memory stick, get “jar” files, they are in the hidden System folder. Save that folder to pc and delete it. Install the jar files, move to mem stick and restore the system dir from pc. It may work, this is your only chance.

  196. aaa says

    use seus in case something wrong happens to your phone!

  197. tasos says

    I want to put flash menu in k770i with CID53. that I will make him?

  198. Peti says

    @aaa: NEVER EVER USE SEUS!!! (on DB2020 and 2012)
    @tasos: no matter what CID you have, you can’t put flash menus on a K770, it doesn’t support them.

  199. tasos says

    @Peti:here it shows that you become

  200. Peti says

    Then try this:

  201. tasos says

    @peti:xs++they is not compatible with CID53
    and said to me that jdflasher they is compatible with CID 53 but I do not know how him I make.
    if it knows somebody help me. thanks

  202. Peti says

    Are you using google translator to speak in English??
    Use JDFlasher to perform everything in the tutorial (there they use fsx…).

  203. anupam says

    peti, can u at least the name of that font….
    I m not gettin it in seusers, I’ll search somewhere else!

  204. Peti says

    Are you looking for the font that SE uses for Cyber-Shot? Man, my memory has its limits, so when talking about your earlier posts, try to post to the same place, so that I can read the earlier post too…
    It is called SONY SKETCH font, it is available at

  205. badtime says

    ok my phone is a w300 db 2010 cid 49 and everytime i drag my fs onto the mkrest thing it just comes on and come off like instantly and it doesn’t make the rest file

  206. Peti says

    Copy that file to the dir of mkrest. Also try command line.

  207. sagar says

    how do u start jd flasher:S

    Start JDflasher.
    Connect phone to JdFlasher as said above.
    Enter oflash mode.

    dont understand these steps:s

  208. Peti says

    Start FAR Manager and press Alt+F1, then select it.

  209. Boopathi says

    My Phone is K810Ii and its a firmware is CID 53, I have deleted the file and i couldn’t replace it back using JD flasher. While copying it shows the file in the left side, but once i reconnect and check it the file is not there and i receive configuration error. Please help me..

  210. Peti says

    The easiest way is to reflash FS. But still very strange, you connect to the phone, ofs, tpa/preset/system/menu. There you go to the other panel, select your, press F5. Go back to the other panel, hit ‘..’ till it asks “are you sure”, hit yes. Did you do this?

  211. Boopathi says

    I tried to copy ad you said, but even the status of copying in shown, but still same problem. Could you please upload a demo video if possible. And even i tried flashing, but even it shows some error. Please help me

  212. Boopathi says

    I have finally flashed the mobile with the service center. Is it possible to convert CID53 to CID52 by flashing the CID52 Firmware in the Phone with CID53

  213. Manz says

    once uv flashed to a new CID, i think its impossible to ever go back to the old cid ( remember, until new solutions are found NEVER FLASH TO CID53!!!!!!) sorry

  214. Peti says

    Yes, Manz, that is correct. But he said he had CID53 at the first place.

  215. azim says

    ive got a problem,
    i cant connect my phone to jdflasher..
    i own a w350i,
    on the instructions of jdflsher, it says to press c while connecting usb,
    but when i do it, it just turns on the phone..
    any ideas?

  216. azim says

    oh yeah, forgot, i used db2020..

  217. Peti says

    It’s pnx5230, try downloading JDFlasher from se-nse.

  218. azim says

    ok.. i tried with pnx5230, and still no luck..
    and i already downloaded 3 version of jdflasher..
    the newest one i think was
    FAR manager for all DB2010,DB2012,DB2020,PNX5230 up to CID53
    and btw, the c button for w350i is also the on button..
    (dont know if that helps)

  219. azim says

    i found it..
    for W350i, to get in flash mode, u have to press 2 not c..
    ok.. thnx for the help earlier.. but i have another problem..
    how comes the flash menu’s i downloaded, dosent have a
    it just have. .thm ._desktop, and some other images.
    (and flashing cid 53 phones with new themes wont brick my phone or anything right?)

  220. azim says

    *(flashing cid 53 phones with new flash menus wont brick my phone or anything right?)

  221. Peti says

    Flash menus should consist of thm and swf files. Why would it brick the phone…

  222. azim says

    sori for the noob quest..
    cause i read in some tutorials that i cant flash cid 53..
    so i was just curious..
    so, where do i put the files using jdflasher?

  223. azim says

    nvm peti.. i found the answer.. thnx alot for ur time and cooperation..
    just one tiny quest before i stop bothering u.. hehe..
    can i flash my acoustic drivers, camera drivers and fonts? i mean, is my phone compatible to do so?
    if so, what type of drivers can i flash them with?

  224. sagar says

    On right side navigate to firmware location on computer. I dont get this bit

    The firmwire is saved in my documents

    My documents isnt there

  225. Peti says

    @azim: you can install drivers, acoustics are only architecture (DB) dependent, fonts are ttf files, all do, camera is phone dependent.
    @sagar: C:\Documents and Settings\\Documents… or move it to somewhere else.

  226. azim says

    what do you mean by architecture (DB) dependent?
    and about the camera, in w350i, i cant take videos.. (thats how the phone is) just pictures, so is there anyway to change that?
    thnx peti, ur really a big help..

  227. azim says

    oh yeah, one more thing.. how bout startup and shutdown animations.. i can change that too right?

  228. Peti says

    Like all DB2020 phones can use any DB2020 acoustics.
    I don’t think there’s a way.

  229. azim says

    now i got a couple of things cleared..
    thnx for the big help..

  230. sagar says

    can i have s500i firmwire coz mine went rong

  231. Peti says

    We don’t have firmwares. Only, and such sites do. I suggest crossflashing to W580, by the way. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  232. Guzman says

    I have a w580i\CID53. Im just trying to debrand my phone so I can put flash themes on it and experience a “debranded” phone. I have the latest JDflasher but after I get to the part where I have to click on “oflash” part, it loads something then gives me an error :


    Im stuck at this point.

  233. Peti says

    Maybe too old JDFlasher, download newer.

  234. Jacques says

    I am completely novice. I got w580i from ATT last week (CID53?) and want to debrand so i can use with Tmobile and in europe when i resturn back.

    Can you please make guide friendly for layman like me? I try to follow your guide I download far & flasher and able to run it but get stuck. I not able to find firmware? Where can i get it for my phone?

    Please help.

    – Jacques

  235. zeewa says

    I Am Getting PUTFILE ERROR

  236. Peti says

    @Jacques: What you want is unlocking. If the phone is CID53, it is not possible for free. Check EROM CID by connecting to XS++.
    @zeewa: It means bad firmware.

  237. Jacques says

    Thanks Peti. I got unlock. I also wish to remove ATT stuff too… I think you said i can downgrade to cid52… can this be done?

    This is XS++ give me:

  238. Jacques says

    Peti – i mean to ask can i debrand phone?

  239. Peti says

    unlock=use with any SIM; debrand=~remove ATT stuff.
    That is CID 53, can’t be downgraded. Unlocking isn’t possible, debranding is. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  240. duan says

    cid53 can change to cid52 or not?

  241. Peti says

    Can’t. CID can’t be downgraded.

  242. duan says

    where i can get update to add cid53 in jd flasher?

  243. Peti says

    Download it from forum.

  244. ez says

    hi, i just followed the instructions and finished flashing my phone. BUT, when i start up my phone it gets stuck at around 90% on the please wait screen. how long does this process usually take?

  245. ez says

    it is still stuck, its been over 30 minutes. should i re-flash it?

  246. ez says

    sorry for all the posts..
    i decided to just turn off my phone and turn it back on, and it worked. does that mean the flash worked? and will i have any problems in the future?

  247. Peti says

    If it doesn’t complain about configuration error, it is fine. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  248. Jacques says

    Thanks Peti.
    I purchase unlock code from ebay. it work good. Now I want to do remove ATT stuff. So i am have to debrand. I understand that.
    Where can i find firmware? I search se lifestyle but cannot find it.
    Can you also please also instruct me how to debrand step by step. I download far+jd flash. I able to follow this guide but get stuck at firmware because i cannot find it. also how do i run jdflasher from far?

    – Jacques.

  249. duan says

    plez help….
    when i hit Alt+F1 and choose just da flasher, error come out
    “File and archive manager”
    “File and archive manager has countered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.”

    what i have to do?

  250. Peti says

    @Jacques: We don’t have firmwares, use google, 4shared,,,
    You just flash a new main fw and fs; then custpack.
    JDFlasher is a plugin of FAR Manager.
    @duan: delete FAR and download again… is it Vista? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  251. Jacques says

    Thanks Peti…

    I am confused. I will try to understand far. what is fs?

  252. Peti says

    FS is filesystem, set of files that the phone uses.

  253. kochu says

    Hi Akshay,… your tutorials are really useful.
    I flashed my K550 – CID 53 with main-W610_R8BA024_MAIN_GENERIC_NA_RED53.mbn.
    got swf support and Walkman.
    Now please clear my doubts:

    1. What are the advantages of flashing FS?
    can I use “W610_R6BC002_FS_EUROPE_4_RED53.fbn”

    2. How can I add flash menus?
    3. I wanna change my acoustic and camera drivers, so that I can get better low frequency response( deep and powerful bass) and good frame rates . How can I do this? (on my CID53 K550 @ w610). Where can I get these stuffs?
    can i use the drivers for CID 52?

  254. Jacques says

    Thanks once more Peti. I now am seeing more information on ths website and am start to understand little bit. I will read more and then see what make sense. Thanks lot for your help.

  255. rudy says

    i have k550 cid53 R6bc002, i intend to cross flash to w610, and i got:
    should it be ok if i use russian fs? coz i cant find apac fs.
    once more, can u provide me short tutorial on cross flashing k550@w610 using jd flasher?
    here’s my emil [email protected]
    thx in advance

  256. Peti says

    @kochu: 1. You’ll have some walkman skins and flash menus, new drivers.
    2. That is written in the crossflashing tut.
    3. Also there.
    Don’t use own_custpack, just upload to FS with JD. “CID 52 drivers” will work. There are some in filebase.
    @rudy: They will work, it doesn’t matter if you use English language.

  257. rudy says

    thx Peti, i’m gonna learn more before doing it.
    Also,do u hv link on how to back up gdfs using jdflasher?
    Thx again,

  258. Peti says

    GDFS can’t be backed up with JDFlasher.

  259. rudy says

    Ooops,then cid53 users can’t back up gdfs?
    Is there any software
    to backup cid53 gdfs?

  260. Peti says

    No, there is no such thing yet. Maybe the new PhoneXS will support it.

  261. kochu says

    Hi Peti, thanx…
    Changed acoustic driver and changed the phone font….
    Now things r getting cool…
    I will try to customize every bit of my phone…

    But still my FS is old K550.

    I have confusion because in flashing FS …
    Flashing CID 53 FS and leaving with out a cust pack can spoil things (according to the tutorial)

    is this true?
    what is ur openion…?

    what is next…?
    im going to change cam driver…

  262. Peti says

    Upload a custpack after flashing FS. That’s all.

  263. kochu says

    But, is it possible on CID 53?

    Can I use a CID 52 Custpack?
    How to do this with JD+FAR ?

    Sorry for too many questions…

  264. Peti says

    Custpacks are not CID dependent. Use a “CID 52” one then. Extract the zip that contains is, it has a tpa folder, upload its content to phone fs/tpa dir.

  265. rudy says

    Thx Peti,now i have k550@w610.
    I applied xaero ma loud to my phone,n’ i found that i can’t use my headset for walkman n music files,but it’s ok when i use d radio..
    Did i make any mistakes?

  266. Peti says

    Did you delete the original acoustics from the phone? :mrgreen:
    Mistake. Upload W880 acoustics and then xaero without deleting anything.

  267. rudy says

    nope, finished flashing main,fs, n cda, i uploaded xaero ma loud using ofs, i just copied it.
    it’ll work only after i call the operator (after i heard the voice w/ my HF, then i use the walkman->it work).
    ok, ill try it ๐Ÿ™‚
    thanx Peti, been a great help 4 me

  268. Peti says


  269. Olivette says

    hey there! i wanted only the jd flasher i already
    have FAR manager. PLS

  270. Peti says

    We have it only this way, I know se-nse hosts it standing alone.

  271. duan says

    db3150 can flash or not?

  272. duan says

    my freiends just bought her handphone w910. when i i want to connect use far manager, connecting appear…… how? cid52, db3150

  273. Peti says

    DB3150 is not flashable.

  274. duan says

    so? can’t do flash menu?

  275. duan says

    so i also can’t access the fs?

  276. duan says

    it is other way to use flash menu?

  277. Peti says

    Too many separate posts. You can’t do anything without professsional tools.

  278. duan says

    what do u mean professional tools?
    can u teach me how? plzzz

  279. Jimmy says

    Can I look up or reset the Lock Code (not sim lock) of my w580i with JDFlasher? Would an OFlash do it? Thanks.

  280. Peti says

    @duan: pro tools -> $1000 or so
    @jimmy: simlock? or the one on startup but not simlock? Maybe, but I’d say it’s stored in GDFS. Give it a try.

  281. Jimmy says

    Well, my w580i is CID53 so that means I can’t apply patches, but is there any way to reset the phone start up lock code? My nephew found it and I don’t know the code.

  282. Peti says

    Maybe reflashing FS resets it, I’m not sure. But if you have warranty, try going to the place you bought it at and ask for help. If they don’t, reflash. If still no go, bring it to any service center.

  283. duan says

    thanx peti…

  284. Sjsuren says

    Thanks For Guide…

  288. Peti says

    @jimmy: oflash, flash new fbn file on from topse or somewhere.
    @Dev: olny jdflasher handles CID 53 phones but can’t patch them, so no free unlocking.
    @Rhodderz: is the phone CID 53? See in XS++.

  289. flex says

    Hi akshayy,it’s me again.I’ve succeded flashing my k550 to w610 just now and it’s look great just as you said. Thx for your great tutorial.
    But i hav a little problem. After i flash my fone,i modd its acoustic and camdriver. There’s no problem with acustic,problem comes with the camdriver i replaced. When i want to use camera there’s warning says “another aplication is running. Close it and start again the camera”. Do you have any idea what’s wrong with that and how to solve it? Plz rply soon..

  300. Akshay says

    no need to backup gdfs with jdflasher.

    do a full reflash of fs and main and cda. and don’t use that camera driver again.

  301. bambu_men says

    [:] don’t you have another solution for that?? if that is the only and easy way, then i’ll do it again. But what is the best camdriver suite for K550@w610?? can you tell me (developer and version) and where can i find it?
    actualy i want to ask more question but that’s enough for now. plz reply as soon enough :D. thx for your kindness

  302. Akshay says

    hmm hey no idea, i use default camera driver. not keeping in touch with it. you can ask at our forums, our users definitely know it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  303. Elliot Horwood says

    It bricked it AVOID IT!


  304. bambu_men says

    Hi akshay, thx 4 ur reply. It dosn’t matter anymore. I do as ur said, full flashing again. Then i use mhq v2.39 A-version camdriver ‘n i think it’s the best camdrvr for my fone. But if u know another better than that, plz let me know.
    Now next prblm is my cam seal not function anymore ‘n there is no cyber-shot logo when i open camera. Can i get those both thing back ‘n how to do that if it can?
    Thx again.

  305. Akshay says

  310. k183 says

    Thanks for the guide AKSHAY,

    I just flashed my phone from k30i to w660i and works great.
    This process took me a good 8 hours (over two days) to do. Finding the FS and main for CID53 took the longest and reading all the materials on the process.

    It can be done, just read Akshay guide, then read it again. If you don’t understand a step, stop read up or read the comments section. Then read the guide again. Every word in this short guide is gold.

    I only did the flashing so I can have the ‘Sleep mode clock’ option. But as I found out later on the k30i is a different screen and it is very dark, hence the reason SE took it out. But that option is important to me.

  311. TK says

    Hey! Im really really scared that i might screw up my K530 =( Anyway, I get a “IMEI = NULL”, “using GDFS Profile” error that someone else had and also an XML Missing error in JDFlasher. =S Does anyone know why?

  312. bambu_men says

    hy akshay, never mind of what i ask in on my older post. i have read your tutor about it now.

  313. joe says

    Hi, well, i’ am trying to upload some icons and an camdriver using the fs. i go into ofs. I cannot drag and put, it shows i can but nothings there, i can only delet items, and i’ am cid 53, help? i mean how do i get my pack in…?

  314. Akshay says

    ok i have not updated something.
    download jdflasher again
    and try.
    thank you.

    and sorry for all late replies.

  315. michello97 says

    hi! i’ve got a question.. i’m not new to these things.. i mean i’ve debranded many phones using your tutorials.. when i tried to debrand my phone (k800i) i’ve updated at SEUS.. and got my cid from 52 to i couldn’t nothing then.. my question now is.. can i do a full reflash ? can i debrand it using any free program ? it’s bought from Orange Romania and.. the software is really stupid..

  316. michello97 says

    ooh.. and another question.. can i unlock it ?

  317. Akshay says

    no you cna’t now.
    you can only flash it and customize it with jdflasher.
    to de brand you need main and fs with romania language and cda for that FS which has romania language.

  318. michello97 says

    thanks for the reply.. i just finished debranding it.. it looks like a sony ericsson now :)) ๐Ÿ˜› i don’t like the phone with romanian language on the menus.. i left it in english.. thank you for your help. cheers michello

  319. Kristoff says

    I’ve a question. Can you retrieve your phone lock code with FAR&JDFlasher?

  320. bhuvan says


    click on repair or unlock button it it re-set the lock code 2 default through se tool!

  321. heritage says

    hi akshayy,
    please help me, i have my k610i red blink, how to fix this with xs++.thanks

  322. bhuvan says

    look in our red blinking/phone dead tutorial
    u can fix it through se tool!

  323. Dan says

    Hi Akshay! Thanks so much for the tutorial – I’ve been putting off trying to use FAR and JDFlasher on my CID53 K800i as I thought it was complicated to use. I just tried it with your tutorial and it works great! I just have one question though – How does one mark All files for transfer to the phone’s FS? I plan to mod the acoustics of this phone but it seems that there’s no way for me to mark all the acoustic files from my computer for transfer to the phone’s acoustic FS. I can mark them one by one via mouse right click though. Any help is truly appreciated. Thanks!

  324. bhuvan says

    its simple…just stay the right button of mouse clicked…n move over the files u wanna select!

  325. GERULA says

    Ummm… I know it sounds stupid but when I want to connect my phone… more exactly when you choose script there is no DB2010 – because my phone is a w200i DB2010 – I also tried DB2012 and DB2020 because they were the only ones. With the DB2012 chosen I get an error when I connect my phone… and when I connect choosing DB2020 it connects and shows me the “oflash” and “ofs” but when I double click on oflash I get an error… Btw I updated my phone also with SEUS and got it to CID53… Basically what I want to do is downgrade it back to a CID52… Can this be done? Please reply… Thanks in advance!

  326. GERULA says

    Ummm… please reply on how to flash… if it can be flashed – i have a w200i-…

  327. Varun says

    The service guys updated my phonw to cid53![:(] now i need 2 flash the phone

  328. Varun says

    Nope figured it out..its workin!:)

  329. Mancini says

    Hi akshay, i’ve putting camdriver0.dat into my CID 53 w660i, with Far+JD flasher… when running those program works fine, the driver are copied. But when quit the program and open it again, my camdriver0.dat wasn’t exist… only camdriver1.dat in it (Ifs/settings/camera). Can you help me how to write that file succesfully, coz now my camera doesn’t work again.
    Thanks Before…

  330. Akshay says

    hmm interesting. new problem again. did you copy the file properly and after copying you should shut down jdflasher correctly. here is another tutorial with pictures. see these pictures. may it helps you.

  331. Mancini says

    Ahaa, thanks Akshay… i’ve found d problem. i didn’t shut down jdflasher corectly… i’ve just click quit button without going to root directory first. That’s why there was no confirmation to wrote down the file. Thanks for the link…
    One more question, is it fine to overwrite my w660i camdriver with cybershot series camdriver?
    Thanks once again.

  332. bhuvan says

    no no problem…just get it!

  333. Akshay says

    no, use drivers made only for your phone.

  334. dillanmac3 says

    ok so i thought this would be the proper place to post this since im having trouble with flashing and stuff. so on the step where you have to find the firmware on the right side of jdflasher i have the firmware and im able to locate it, but every time i hit yeah, flash it. it comes up with this
    so im not sure whats going on

  335. Mancini says

    i see, thanks bro

  336. Akshay says

    hmmmmmm you are using jdflasher right ???????
    ensure that firmware is not damaged file. download jdflasher from here. this is the latest version should not produce that error. this may work out for that error.

  337. dillanmac3 says

    hey Akshay,
    so i got the flash themes on the phone and every thing but when i turned it on it said configuration error please contact your service provider

  338. Akshay says

    put the CDA or reflash FS and then CDA/Custpack

  339. dillanmac3 says

    what is the CDA

  340. bhuvan says


  341. dillanmac3 says

    so how would i make that change on jdflasher?

  342. bhuvan says

    just upload the cda files to tpa\preset\custom

  343. Pankaj says

    Hi Akshay..
    I recently updated my W610i and as it was giving CID53 I used JD Flasher+Far manager.
    In that I am getting the error when I select any of the oflash or ofs–
    SetDirectory(setdir(setmode(doscript(qhldr(file 070703 1229 DB2020_SEMC_RECOVERY_P3N.2020_1_BLUE is not a babe)))))

    Can u tell me what should i do.

  344. bhuvan says

    i guess u gt blue version fs and main…instead of red!
    do one thing…re f;ash it using seus as already ur cell is cid:53…so nthng will go wrng
    it will get u red one…and may b then it will work
    do tak care of choosing the right platform…i.e. db2020…max speed

    get the latest jdflasher with cid:53 plugin from our filebase!

  380. kof64 says

    sorry for my english,i have k790i,it works for me,but after restarting i can’t see phone language :arabic,french,….. i see jsut english.i can use just writing language,and the fonts & the flash menu is ok the problem is phone language …. pls help

  385. Akshay says

    don’t know. follow tutorial properly. you should shutdown phone and then re-insert battery and connect phone and have battery charged completely.

  386. Dawsy says

    i had shut down my phn properly and also reinserted the battery ….should the battery be charged till 100% or else justify pls

  387. Akshay says

    it should have some decent charge. have you installed the usb flash drivers?? you should use Jdflasher. Select script as db2020 during flashing.. did you see the flashing video of a db2020 phone ? its link is given in tutorial.

  388. Dawsy says

    my batt chg is showin 59%…and usb is installed as well as my phn is showin the details when it is connected to xs++….
    i hav downloaded the tuts as well and im xactly followin the same……
    this is how the error looks like

    replace hxxp by http

  389. Akshay says

    hmm the picture is really small. lol. and what site is it ? use some other nice image hosting. am removing that link, i don’t allow links to suspicious websites.

  390. Dawsy says

    lol actually i gt tht link frm orkut…as i uploaded tht pic has a scrap no worries i uploaded the same on to my website….here is the link to it ….just click on the pic to see a larger image

    ohk…did you safely removed your phone from jd flasher?

  405. Forhan says

    I did just according to u r tutorial.But the problem is-
    when after selecting the main file to flash with,babe image doesn’t appear as the option.I just select copy and it is copied.This happens also with FS.As a result my phn mmry has been decreased(from 77MB to 34MB!),but it dint gv me anytng.Same k550(cid53)!Watz wrng plz suggest me

  406. bhuvan says

    firstly dont go for ofs…u need to open oflash for flashing in jdflasher
    secondly..unzip the package…then drag the .mbn file

    you must be copying full .zip pack!
    extract the firmware
    whats the extension of file u are copying?

  408. sethzen says

    Hey :O

    im wonder about the customize.xml and preloader.xml files. Do you need to find specific ones? or can any be used?

  409. hellboy says

    You need to find ones specific and compatible with the version of FS you have used.

  410. bhuvan says

    @ sethzen
    specific ones
    acc to ur region and phone’s model

  411. Sethzen says

    Right, so i have a w580i CID 53, im using these files to flash:

    Would i be right in using the contumize.xml etc from this CDA?

  412. bhuvan says

    @ Sethzen
    custpacks are not firmware dependent…
    this is right…
    take one acc to ur region

  413. Sethzen says

    I started to flash my phone. I flashed the main okay, but when i went to flash the FS i got this error

    putfiles(putfile(putfile_flash(flashbabe(header(send header error 15)))))

    What do i do? Can i use my phone without FS for the time being? XD I dont want to turn it on incase something bad happens ๐Ÿ˜›

  414. Sethzen says

    Hey, i got my phone flashed ๐Ÿ˜€ took about 7 files to finally get one that didnt get an error in babeck.exe, thanks ๐Ÿ˜›

  415. bhuvan says

    @ Sethzen
    nope…u can give a try..and get the latest jdflasher from our filebase
    and use it..
    if still does not works…get other fs from diff place

  416. Superman777 says

  427. boo says

    hi bhuvan

  436. dinesh says

    Hi Bhuvan ,Akshay

    (bad answer 10))))))….This is just after detecting the phone!

    What would have gone wrong?

    (I am using winxp SP2)

  437. bhuvan says

    Shahzad Iqbal

    connect ur phone back
    dont know why that error is coming

  439. madman says

    Now have the Cybershot+walkman phone!!

    Only dissapointment is before flashing i had to charge the phone for only 20minutes with optimized charging, but now taking 3 hours to get full charge…What i can do for this???

  441. dinesh says

    Is there any files to be added to activate the optimized charging again?

  442. Guilherme says

    Hi all,

    I have a k790i and I had the stupid idea to update my firmware in SE site…
    Now I have my phone locked for all companies…
    I could see it is updated to CID53.
    Is there a way to unlock that F!@##$ phone again in this CID53???
    If yes, please bring me the way!!!!!!!!!

  443. bhuvan says

    what u wanna do?

  444. bhuvan says

    cid 53 cant be downgraded
    but follow anycid method to unlock

  445. dinesh says

    the phone isnt getting charged quickly as it used to be.but iam willing to compromise that, since all the other funtions are pertty much ok.
    best of all now iam having a walkman k550i ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I really really need my phone and I would appreciate and be eternally grateful towards you if you could help me.
    Here’s the main, fs and cutspack files I downloaded, maybe it’s the wrongs ones? I couldn’t find a custpack for

    HEy in my search to get this workin i stumbled upon many resources on this site

    And erom fixing and GDFS fixin was one of them
    so at this point i have control over the phone!! the only problem is

  477. Shan says

    ok i’m able to reflash FS and MAIN except CDA
    however i can fix erom with setool2lite 1.11
    and i have back up of gdfs but i think its a damaged GDFS
    Now my questions:

    Pls help! or atleast let mee kno that i have maybe screwd up my phone so i give up thanks!

  478. Akshay says

    Shan, if your phone is CID52 and in good condition, then using XS++ just relfahs main +fs and cda files and restart phone. simple
    if that does not work, try to flash your backup gdfs.

    Steps and queries:
    1. Install USB Flash drive. But is there any separate drive for K810i or its kinda generic?
    2. Take GDFS backup. But how can I make a backup as I couldnโ€™t use XS++ with CID53?
    3. Flash it with JDFlasher+Far according to the tutorial. For flashing Iโ€™v collected the following:
    Is that all?
    Any more steps or things to do? kindly advise me.
    One more thing to know, do I need to patch or unlock or something else? as i know nothing about flashing can anyone please help me out?

    pls help me

  536. bhuvan says

    yeah…ull have to reflash fs!take backup via my phone explorer of all the content which is there in ur phone memory!

    1.when driver is hardware will be detected..just do it..ull get it way left for taking smart…play carefully..nothing would go wrong as most of the people around have cid53 phones only! it..also jdflasher is fast and poerful than xs++…i find is easy too!so enjoy!no need to patch or something if ur phone is unlocked or de branded!i mean simple se phone!

    Hi, my phone can’t turn on after I turn it off for some reason. it’s a w580. From Setool2lt I know it’s FLASH CID53 RED. I read many sites and try to reflash the main (although have very little idea what it is, I hope it will save my phone).

    I follow your instructions but it failed when I doubled click on “oflash” . It shows a red error signage “setdirectory…..>>>>”

    A side note, I hold “2 and 5” when connect the phone rather than “c” (somehow “c” doesn’t work with my phone)

    I hope you can help. Thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

  538. bhuvan says

    first tell me..’c’ key method is not working?
    red light is blinking?

  539. truc says

    yes, it’s exactly like what you said. “c” key doesn’t work and the red light is blinking… ๐Ÿ™

  540. truc says

    Hey bhuvan, I just read the your answer on “redlight blinking, dead?” thread. it seems there is no way to fix it myself? Erom and Firmware are 2 different things?
    Still what you guys doing here is amazing. I learnt quite a few surprising things about cellphones here… [never thought about these things until now^^]

  541. bhuvan says

    yea a lot can be done but sorry to say ur phone cant be fixed for free here!
    cid53 red light blinking needs erom to be repaired!
    cid52 erom can be fixed though!
    n firmware is diff thing!
    its just os of ur phone!
    just get ti fixed from service center!
    having warranty?
    and get back to learn hell more!

  542. truc says

    no. the warranty is expired. do you know where I can get it fixed?
    Sure, I will be around the corner

  543. bhuvan says

    dont know!
    contact any local sller of parts and accessories and look out for warranty too!
    company peple take a lot compared to them

  544. Ellis says

    Hi, trying to flash my K800i using this thread, I’ve got to the part where i am selecting firmware ( I have found a generic_main ending in CID53.min but when i am in in copy everything is greyed out (can’t select) apart from cancel. Is this the wrong file type you think?


  545. Akshay says

    no, try again, properly, don’t make mistakes.

  546. Ellis says

    Cheers Akshay for the reply but it looks like everything i am doing is correct.
    Having a second look though and reading your forums it looks like my EROM is bust i’ve installed USB drivers and used setool2 lite repair button and it comes back with this:

    ChipID:9900,EMP protocol:0301
    OTP LOCKED:1 CID:49 PAF:1 IMEI:35170801167128 CERT:N/A
    Can’t build loaders chain ;(
    Elapsed:15 secs.

    Does this mean ‘cos its CID53 that its really bust and no way around recovering it? I have no previous GDFS backup point either ๐Ÿ™

    If this is is the case i don’t remember updating it ever through SEUS to get CID53?? So i am confused :((

  547. Ellis says

    Just to add to this, phone doesn’t turn on, has 6 red lights flashing and also light flashes when charging battery in phone.

  548. Akshay says

    CID53, sorry, no free lunch for that phone. Get it repaired from SONY ERICSSON Service center.

  549. Ellis says

    Ok no worries, i had a feelin that was the answer, cheers anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

  550. COOLOON says

    I am quite new to mobile phone customization… I have a w200i and want to add flash menus functionality.
    I installed Far Manager +JDFlasher plugin… loaded Far Manager… then pressed alt+F1 and selected “just da flasher”. After that, the program window crashes.
    “File and archive manager has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.”
    AppName: far.exe
    AppVer: 1.70.2087.0
    ModName: jdflasher.dll
    Offset: 0000df7d

  551. Akshay says

    COOLON, something wrong with your Windows. Never seen that crash. try else where.
