I have a swedish XDA (Qtek 1010, 32MB) and I tried to upgrade
the firmwares. (From the Irish site)
The radio firmware went well, but the ROM upgrade didn't work.
It says:
And describes my version against the upgraded version. The
difference is in Model. Mine is PW10A1:007 and the upgrade says
As a result, I can no longer use GPRS...
Any ideas how to reverse the Radio Flashing???
Best Regards,

I'd say Your best option is to reflash the XDA with the original
Wallaby image and continue from there , as im typing im actually
in process of reflashing one

Well, after some more reading from this great site, I decided to
manually try to upgrade the ROM with the XDA ROM Image Tool.
I unpacked the files from the O2 archive and put them on an SD
card. Rebooted the XDA into WALLABY Bootloader and flashed the
ROM from the SD card.
And it worked!!!
Now I have the latest version in my phone!!! The best upgrade is
GPRS 4+1 and the ability to keep GPRS when in suspended mode.

We're glad it works again. We've upgraded multiple phones with
the 4.14 RSU, and have not observed problems.

I have a German version but I do not speak good german and I
rather do it in English.
I saw it was a link with a german version but it look totally
different from the Irish one.
Can you please explain me more how you update your swesdish
version by a Irish patch? Im kind a beginner. Thanks a lot

Could anybody help me to find a flash for GSM1900 radio ?

Indications we have received seem to indicate the 900/1800 and
900/1900 radios are actually different parts, and not just
different firmware images.
More knowledge on the phone will be free. We'll keep you posted

@ Laisvunas
Well, I asked for the ROM, not how to switch as I did know about
that feature quid a while. GSM 1900 ROM are different. GSM 1900
ROMs start with version Number 6.xx
@ XDA developers
But it is possible to flash a 6.xx Rom on a non GSM 1900 XDA,
why not try ?? In the end it would be my device which might be
crashed. But all information about hardware is always welcome

Finally someone tested.

In other words, at least just changing the settings in the
bootloader doesn't help to make the US phone do 1800. For now
we're assuming new Radio firmware will also not do the trick, as
we have indications that the radio parts are actually different.
We'll keep you posted.

If you flash the 4.xx on a US 900/1900 unit, you will render it
T-MOBILE just came out with the update in the last couple of
days, at
You need a 10-digit US t-mobile number to download the update.
Make up a number in the format 801808xxxx as this is a prefix
belonging to them.
The file is a ROM update to 3.14, which internally includes an
auto-updater that puts GSM ROM 6.18 on the unit. Worked great
for me.

T-Mobile US with new ROM

T-Mobile US does also provide a new ROM for download:
You need a TM US phonenumber to get access, should not be too
hard to find. They do not have a RSU upgrade
Subject: RSU Upgrade
From: mike
Date: 23 Dec, 2002 07:24:10
What do you mean no RSU upgrade? Yes it does, the RSU upgrade
is just built in to the ROM. It auto-installs after you boot
the new ROM the first time, upgrades to 6.18.
A 10-digit prefix belonging to t-mobile is 801808xxxx, which you
could use to download the update without a t-mobile phone.

My mistake, because TM and o2 have two updates, I tought TM-US
does only provide programm A. I did not flash it because I do
not need a hole OS in English :wink:
Subject: Valid number
From: Some guy
Date: 23 Dec, 2002 12:33:36
They do check whether a number is valid before letting your
download. There's surprisingly few numbers that are valid if one
just probes around at random. 80180801234 is valid.Since this
ROM is said to flash the phone at boot, I would not run this on
a 900/1800 phone.

My sources say this is being delayed by a further month.
Apparently something to do with getting the MMS stuff working
(including new version of EZWap).
I'm hoping to get an evaluation copy sooner

I used the irish update and it works fine
rom version - 3.14.13eng

radioversion 4.14
protocol version 32s54

Yes, I've used the same version in O2 as the IRL upgrade (and
right now I'm using an xda with the same build to browse this
I would urge UK users to hold out for the official upgrade, if
only because of the inherent risks in reflashing. I've been
lucky so far, but then it isn't a problem for me as I have the
resources (and spare xdas) if all goes belly-up.
