Red light blinking? Dead phone? Any/All CID erom repair/downgrade using OMNIUS


You try to start your phone but the red light at the infrared port blinks 5 times and phone refuses to start.Far manager, XS++ and SeTool 2 lite no longer detect your phone. Your computer also does not identify your phone. And its seems to be completely Dead..Read On, We will fix it.

Phones supported : All those phones which Omnius supports. Almost all from SE. Check yours in there. 🙂

UPDATE: This method includes fixing erom version CID53 also. Which was not possible for free till date. Also if everything is fine but you want to downgrade to lower version of erom then you can follow the given steps. 🙂

Redlight blinking is a Sign of Low Battery or a Dead EROM. Some time during flashing the EROM goes dead or corrupt due to errors.  If phone has a bad EROM it shuts down and does not start even if battery is charged to full. It may happen very rare times just like that too!

Double Check that battery is not the problem before you proceed to flash the EROM.

In that case we have to repair the EROM. And now here we will discuss the easiest way to fix it.

  2. Flash drivers

Also you will need a registered account at OMNIUS (compulsory). All operations and registration at OMNIUS is free for now. If you don’t have account yet CLICK HERE.
