Now, heres a step by step guide on flashing your fone to W700 R1CA021 (if u haf r1db firmware). if you already haf r1ca then proceed to step 4 after step 1.
Download these files first…XS++,USB Flash and FAR manager from here (from the flashing and firmware files folder)
EDIT: A newer version of XS++, with more features and stability, can be downloaded here: http://www.4shared.com/file/29498248..._31_Final.html
W700 firmware files with customization pack from here(download all 3 files):
Goto the flashing and firmware files folder and download these 3 files: W700_R1CA021_MAIN_EU_1.mbn, W700_R1CA021_FS_EMEA_6_RED49.fbn and W700_Carolina_i_CDA102580_103_EMEA_6.rar
super LOUD speaker driver…. Farfield_highest_quality.rar (acoustics folder):
after downloading, unpack all the files .rar files using WinRar.
STEP1: Installing USB Flash Driver.
Turn off your phone. Remove SIM and memory card, and re-insert battery. Do not turn ON.
Now open the program XS++ . Click START. While pressing and holding the ‘c’ button on your fone’s keypad, insert USB cable. Windows will detect a new hardware and ‘Install new hardware’ wizard pops up. Release the ‘c’ button. In the wizard, click ‘no, not at this time’ and next. Choose to install from a specified location and click next. Under ‘search for the best drivers to install’, check ‘include this location in the search’. Under ‘browse’, choose the path to the unpacked folder of USB Flash Driver. Now click next and let the windows install the driver. After installing the driver, close XS++ and disconnect phone and turn it off in case it has switched on. Remove battery for 2 seconds and re-insert it (to refresh your phone).
Now your phone is ready to be flashed.
Again open XS++, click START, and insert cable while pressing ‘c’ the same way as before. Your fone gets detected and on the left side of the screen, you get the detailed info of your phone including the EROM CID number, IMEI, firmware etc. IMP: the term RED should appear in the screen for u to continue the tutorial!
STEP2: Flashing MAIN.
In XS++ window, check Flash Main, browse and select file ‘W700_R1CA021_MAIN_EU_1.mbn’ that u downloaded. Now hit flash. After completion of the process, unplug fone and close XS++. Take out and re-insert battery in the interval of 2 seconds to refresh the fone.
STEP3: Flashing FS.
Now Open XS++ and connect fone the same way as before. Check the Flash FilesSytem Tab. Browse and select the files ‘W700_R1CA021_FS_EMEA_6_RED49.fbn’ that u downloaded. Now hit flash. After completion, unplug fone, re-insert battery to refresh.
STEP 4: Customizing FS.
After unpacking, copy the customization folder ‘W700_Carolina_i_CDA102580_103_EMEA_6’ you downloaded into the FAR manager folder. also copy the farfield_play.apf super loud driver in to the same folder.
Now that we’ve flashed FS, we need to install customization (regional) files in FS to make ur fone work. To access the fone’s FS, we have a program called FAR manager.
But first we must make our fone compatible with FAR manager. To do this, we flash a patch to our MAIN firmware using XS++. Open XS++, connect fone. Now as we did before, check the Flash MAIN. Now browse(‘…’) to FAR manager folder and goto Plugins folder. select the file ‘k750w800_r2e_dcu.49r.ssw’ as MAIN file and hit flash. This will take 3 seconds. Unplug fone and close XS++ when it displays ‘Finishing Flash’. Take out and re-insert battery to refresh.
Now open FAR manager program, and press F11 key, select the SEFP plugin. in the following popup window, select DCU-60 cable, speed:921600 and boot script as K750_w800_cid49 (make sure u don’t select K750_w800_CID36 by mistake). Now click ‘Enter the Matrix’. In the following window, it asks you to connect fone just the way u connected to XS++ (by holding ‘c’ bla blah blah!).
FAR will detect your fone and 2 folders will appear, FLASH and FS. Double click on FS and let it process for a couple of minutes. Now you have entered the File Sysytem of your fone…Congrats! You’re a hacker now! Many folders are displayed there. The folders on the left side of the FAR manager screen represent ur fone’s filesystem (FS). The right side of your screen displays the FAR manager folder (on ur PCs hard drive) that u just downloaded. The left side displays folders (‘..’,ifs,card,tpa,etc etc…). Here the ‘..’ represents the root of the directory(i.e. u can go back to previous folders by clicking this). On the right side (on hard drive folder FAR) goto ‘W700_Carolina_i_CDA102580_103_EMEA_6’ folder. there is a subfolder called ‘tpa’ inside. Now by clicking and holding this folder, drag it to the left side of the screen onto the ‘..’ (that represents root directory). Make sure u don’t drag it over any other folders . in the new popup, click ‘copy’ and wait for a few seconds as your customization files get copied into the FS. Now that the files have been copied, lets play around.
We are already inside the FS so why not take this opportunity to increase the speaker sound of our fones…. Inside FS, goto folder ifs>settings>acoustic>. The files that are being displayed are your fones sound drivers. Search for the file named ‘farfield_play.apf’ and delete it. Now copy the ‘farfield_play.apf’ in FAR folder (on hard drive) to this acoustic folder by just dragging it to anywhere on the left side of the screen. Click ‘..’ in FS to go back to previous folders. Continue clicking ‘..’ in previous folders until it asks you to ‘Shutdown The CSFS loader’. Hit ‘YES’ and close FAR. Unplug fone and re-insert battery to refresh.
Now we need to unpatch the MAIN that we did using XS++. Again open FAR, connect fone the same way as we did before until you reach the screen that displays FLASH and FS folders. This time, double click on FLASH. Now you enter another screen that displays ‘memory’. Ignore that. On the right side (hard drive) inside FAR folder, goto folder Plugins>REST. Look for the file named ‘REST_W700_R1CA021’. Select and drag the file to anywhere on the left side of the screen and click on ‘copy’ and then ‘flash’. In the following popup click ‘close’. Close FAR and unplug fone.
Re-insert SIM and battery and turn your fone ON. Wait for few minutes as it takes time to process the new firmware. YOUR DONE! Enjoy the Mega-bass in headsets and super loud speaker by playing media player without headsets!!!
