    Default T108 upgrade for T100.. what's new?

    Hi all,

    I've seen a few sites with links to the T108 upgrade for the T100, but not a lot of information on what is actuallyu new in the update.. has anyone here done it, or can anyone tell me what's new in there???

    Also if I do flash it to 108 and it fails, can you reflash back to 100?

    thanks

    READ AND WEEP

    SGH-T108 FAQ:
    =============

    Where can I download the upgrade software from?

    You can download it by clicking on the link below:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I can't extract/deflate the zip file?

    You will need the latest version of WinRar (version 3.0)
    You can download it on this link: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    What parameters of the program would I need to set?

    Mode Selection=Binary+Ogm
    File Selection: Main Flash=T18BJVC8.axf, Second Flash=T18BJVC8.ogm
    Setting: Port=COM1 (default), Baud Rate=115200 (default)
    Option: Uncheck all checkboxes as other users have experienced problems with this
    Just press the start button and your off. Make sure that your phone is connected and is off.

    How long does the whole process take?

    About 5 to 8 minutes.

    I have download the software but now my phone is all in Chinese/Non-english. How can I fix this?

    The language is set to Non-english by default. To change the settings back to english, do the following:
    1. Press left softkey for menu
    2. Press right arrow key 4 times to get to setting
    3. Press 1 for phone setting
    4. Press 3 for language
    5. Press 1 for text language. This is the point where you change your language, 1 for english, 2/3/4... are for other languages

    What additional features or enhancements does the T108 have?

    From my understanding, the following enhancements/features have been added:

    - AnswerPhone: allows your phone to have an inbuilt answering machine where you can record your own messages, interrupt the answering machine and talk to the user if needed to. Unlike voicemail, this does not divert your calls. When the other person leaves a message this gets stored in the phone (limited storage time).
    - Animated Menu graphics
    - Different Turn On/Off animated pictures
    - Selectable delivery reports (Orange users only)
    - Fixes bugs relating to setting bookmarks on WAP
    - New ringtones (30 built-in, 3 download, 2 user, 12 upload)

    Which obvious enhancements were not added?

    - Games do not run at a faster frame rate (still the same speed)
    - You cannot edit received text messages (still!)
    - Number/ABC/Eng/Symbol formatting is still the same access (Have to press the ABC button and press 1 for ABC, 2 for Number, 3 for English, 4 for Symbolic)

    What languages are supported in the software?

    English and Chinese only. No support for the German or French or any other language as yet.

    My WAP doesn't seem to work anymore. How do I fix it?

    Press *2767*927#
    This will enable/disable WAP.

    If this does not fix the problem try the following:
    Do a WAP reset *2767*927# as before.
    Then put your WAP settings into proxy #5 (or #3 for others - try both)

    For WAP settings on 02, click on the following link for more info:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Will this void my warranty?

    Check with your Service Provider regarding this.

    Is there a User Manual available for this?

    Yes, click on the following link:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Will the original software that came with the phone that enables wallpaper/ringtone uploads still work?

    Yes

    Will my other programs previously compatible with the SGH-T100 still work?

    This is entirely dependant on the program. PSM Player (latest version) I believe, still works. Not sure about the others though.

    I cannot connect to my phone. How do I fix this?

    This is a problem that Samsung have addressed regarding connectivity. A patch will be available to fix this problem on the Samsung website. Go to:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I have tried to upgrade but it tells me incorrect file name. What do I do?

    Try the following:
    1. Uncheck all the checkboxes of the options in the program.
    2. You may have problems with your phone connection.
    3. Files may be corrupted. Download the files again.

    I get the message "Flash Write error". Now my phone won't turn on. What do I do?

    Download Samsung Toolbox v4 and follow the details on the pdf file to fix the problem.
    The software is available on the this link: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    G.Ziakkas (Moderator/Administrator) has written a manual for it. LInk: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    What do the T108 screenshots look like?

    There are screenshots taken which can be accessed on this link:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Can I revert back to the original T100 software?

    Yes. Here is a link that provides downloads for the different software/firmware for each country/network that the original Samsung T100 is released.

    ah a quick move onto win2k and i managed to get it flashed

    however how annoying is it that you cant change the ring period for that bloody answerphone, it's pretty useless without being able to change it from what seems to be, answer after 1 ring!

    have you downloaded the new instruction manual? there has to be a way.

    The only downside I have noticed is that ringtones that vibrated before dont know, but im sure if i play around with the settings ill sort it.

    If not just download old firmware and reflash.

    Unfortunatley there's no real way to change the ring period, how annoying is that. A new firmware is imminent so i'm hoping there will be a nice option for the answerphone.

    And yep, another problem with teh 108 upgrade is that you loose your ring & vibrate function, I think you have to download VLPlus and edit your files somehow, not played with that yet.

    if you've not already been there, then I recommend this forum, very active in the t100 section and a few people discussion how to get around the ring & vibrate issue
