Original Firmware for Version CECT p168C (June 2008) Dual Sim only


NOTE: Thanks to member virdri, who posted a correct FIRMWARE for the P168C

this is conformed to work. and also you can reflash on P168+ phones

Since rapid share is a slow server, I will host this on mediafire for a little faster download.




Very Happy

I'm not so sure that it's a definate "can't be done" quite yet. There's a fellow on a german forum for the p168 who claims to have done this. My german is "nicht so gut" so I did't get the jist of it all. The fellow who refered me to the forum is from germany and is going to try it himself in the next day or so. I'm waiting for his results, then I might try it myself. His claim was flashing a p168+ with the p168c firmware. For you german speaking folks http://www.chinamobiles.org/showthread.php?t=6129

I uploaded this firmware to p168 and phone do not start up. To upload I used spiderman.
There is too much diferences in this and orginal firmware if you compare it in hex editor.
Both phones 168 and 168c seems to work on same chip mtk 6226.
I will try to modyfi 168c firmware to work on 168 but it would be not so easy.

P168C (June 2008) Firmware

I have p168c which I bought recently on ebay and it was working until I choose the high speed sim card option in engineering mode and then there was no way to turn it on. However after flashing the phone with this firmware it turn on and everything seems to work but the menu is like the old p168 and not the one I had before. The original firmware was YH718-NOLOGO-ENX_900-HW_V1_3-SW_V001 can anybody upload this one or help me. Thanks

What flashtool did you use? I believe spiderman has a button that you can get the proper firmware update off the web. In any case, go to http://forum.gsmhosting.com/ and search their database.

PostSubject: arabic keyboard   Tue Aug 12, 2008 11:59 am

What I'm unable to write on this phone is arabic. Even when I select arabic the menus only appear with arabic letter but not as words. It doesn't combine words. Anybody know how to write arabic properly?

I flashed my p168+ successfully with the latest version firmware above and it looks great but it will not see my sim any more. Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

when you mean "successfully" did your menu and options change?

you have to take note when flashing firmware, that is not compatible with your phone.
or your chip setting. if it is not finding your your SIM it could mean trouble.

try taking your battery out letting your phone sit for 5 min or so. take your SIM card back out and place it back in making sure its seated. put a fully charged battery back in and turn it back on.

you may have to re-flash your phone back with a compatable firmware

I mean it now has the dual sims and the IPhone menu and 4 or 5 games, better themes, the water ripple sound(LOL), My GSM only works using the auto setting and the phone os seems much faster now. If I use sim1 it says insert sim and if I use sim2 it just says emergency. Also this sim works in my att Blackberry and its sim gets the same emergency. I am not in a rush to use the phone since I have a BB but once I get this resolved I will mostly use this phone.

Thanks

what process did you use to flash your phone?

Software etc.....

what build p168+ do you own?

as you know a member here had issues with hers and she finally got it up but it didnt flash to the newest firmware. it reverted back to the original style "+" menu screen. you call follow the entire story here
http://p168.forumotion.com/request-tutorials-f6/big-bad-problem-t32.htm

and now here the the new issue just like you have
http://p168.forumotion.com/help-f5/back-again-with-another-problem-t169.htm


it would help us all understand the workings of each phone and what should be done to make it correct Smile

I am not sure how to tell my build. I am not sure where to find that at.

I turned my phone off

removed the battery for like 20 seconds

started Superman 2.20

set the speed to 115200 K or what ever it is

hit connect

then chose my bin file

then I hit the FLASH button in Superman

I then hit the ON/OFF button (the red phone button on the P168+)

about 20 minutes later it said file sent and COM port 1 down I think

I turned the phone on and it was upgraded to P168C firmware and only the sims do not work anymore. I used to use a 3G that worked when it was a P168+

I see in her post a 2g Tmobile works which is what I am waiting on anyway so I will see how it goes since I am cancelling my ATT account.
