I have a secondhand 580i.. won't even turn on though.. and yes I've charged the battery. So I let Wotan "read" it for me, and according to their info.. the OTP CID is 51, and the EROM CID # is 52. I assume this is a problem, and that they should match.. so I tried to flash it with Wotan, and everything cooked along till the end when it gave"wrong header" "Flash Failed" messages. I have retried choosing different firmware each time. How can I resolve the nonmatching numbers above though? I'm not offered an option to upgrade the CID... so
this is the first time i visit the forums here and im looking for help. My K800i SW keeps restarting itself when i sometimes browse my phonebook and or play games on it --> the screen goes blank and then black and restarts for 20-30seconds I have tried running the SEUS SW from my PC but it tells me that there is no update available for my phone! However, ive read everywhere that version R1KG001 has been out longtime ago, how come the updater doesnt find it? My current SW version is: CXC1250210 R1JC002 070122 Is there a post that i missed in the forum which can show me how to manually update my K800i OS/SW ?
have recently been having few issues with my phone, and noticed im still running the original firmware R1CB001.Installed SEUS, follows all intrustions, gets to where it has progress line for installing the firmware.the update starts but after about 30secs, i hear the sound from my pc as if ive just unplugged something from usb and then few seconds later as if something has been plugged back into usb, then the bar just jumps to the enter and says update complete.Turned phone on again, checks software version and still shows as being same as it originally was.Does anyone have any ideas on whats happening and any possible fix?
I just got a new Sony Ericsson K800i. I am trying to find out how to auto update local time. I don't have internet connection with TMobile. But I think you don't need to pay for the internet connection to update time. The old phone I have, when I get to a new location in different time zone, it will search for the service and update the time automatically. But I can't seem to make K800i to update time by itself.
My friend has a k800i and in the past week his "call history", has disappeared. In the sense that it no longer says who calls, and what calls he's missed. I did a search on that problem and found a new firmware update would fix that problem. I told him to check the software he had and he said he has the R1ED001 software. I did some researching and found there is a new R1GB001 firmware out for the K800. Here is where the problem is. I told him to download the application from the SE support page, and run the application and the step by step guide will tell you what to do.
Now he called me back after trying twice to update the phone and nothing happens. He told me that he removes the battery completely, then puts it back in, holds down the "C" button, and while holding down the "C" button connects it to his USB cable (same usb that came with the phone). While still holding the "C" button, the phone turns on, but he says the sony application will just go back to the beginning and nothing happens. Is there anything he's doing wrong? I flashed my w800i almost 2 yrs ago, and forgot how this exactly works.
My K800i turns itself off every (est.) 10 seconds after I turn it on. I tried taking the mem.card off & changing the batt but it didn't solve the prob.I used the master reset(all setting) but it wasn't successful because at the midst of the procedure, it turned off.Now whenever I turn it on, it only says "please wait" (probably because of the reset I did) but it would not continue even if I wait for a couple of hours.I tried updating it with Update Service but it failed. I tried several times and same things happened.
Does anyone know why the icons on my K800i are different to those on my mates K800i? Mine are boring and dull and his are full of colour and flash. Is it possible to update them? I have tried the SE update site but no joy.
I asked this on another thread earlier but thought maybe it was in the wrond place so decided to start my own topic.My 3 nokia phone broke so i bought a mates Sony K800i as i wasnt due for a new phone yet and had lots of time left on my 3 contract. The K800i works good apart from i cant find out how to connect to the Planet3 function. I find Planet3 usefull for the free browsing anfd checking my usage and stuff so would like to get it on the k800i of possible?The K800i is unlocked but wasnt a 3 mobile phone origianally if that makes a differance. I tried to find some info on this and it seems that maybe new firmware is needed? Anyone willing to give me a simpletons guide to sorting this problem out?
I have a k800i - branded to UK operator Three and I need it to accept my vodafone contract sim as my contract phone died!I've been searching and searching trying to find out how to de-brand the phone so that I can use any sim in it but I'm really, really confused as to how I need to do it, can someone explain it to me in english? I've seen this post on this site here: http://www.expansys.com/ft.aspx?k=98987 And it's asking me to download firmware, FS firmware, XS++ V2.0 and flash drivers. I have no idea what they are or where to get them from. Can anyone help, please? I'm desperate for a phone!
I have this major problem. I have a virus on my phone. Its not causing any problems with my phone, but with my pc. The virus copies itself to anything that has memory.
I use my phone as a modem to connect to the internet. So even if I remove the virus from my pc, the virus copies itself from the phone to the hard drive as soon as I want to connect to the net. I tried to format my M2 card and master reset my phone, the virus doesn't seem to disappear.
The only thing I can think of now is reflash, but I don't know. Plus here aren't any Sony Ericsson dealers that can do it for me. So I was hoping that one of you guys can explain it to me if that possible.

1. What I need to do before I start modding my phone software to make sure not to demage my phone permanently, is there a backup of the software that uses my phone, or something?
2. I tried to replace turkish lng and t9 file with my native language (serbian) from Tripov language pack, using JDFlasher. The phone language works perfectly, but writing not. When I enter the writing dialog box, screen turns to white and phone restarts. After that I copied tr.lng and tr.t9 from Tripov to phone, and the situation stayed the same. After doing master reset, turkish disappeared from the writing languages menu. I don't care about turkish language I lost. I never use it. I want to ask how to install serbian t9 to my phone, without damaging it, and make it works?
3. How to ridd off Sony Ericsson links from the file manager and preinstalled java apps, pics, etc.
4. Is it safe to remove shutdown video, and how to do that?
5. I heard a lot about modded acustic and camera dravers, but I know nothing in particular. I'm looking for camera mod that gives the clear pictures. I mean the mod rises overall picture quality, NOT the one which will heavy postprocess the picture (e.g. Like in Nokia N73). I am skilled enough to do it myself. I don't care about rising the video quality, I almost never use video. And I'm also looking for the acustic mod that rises overall sound quality (not volume), if there's any. Well every suggestion about the modded drivers is welcome.
6. Is it possible to replace the bookmarks list, that appears after clickig the right soft key with contacts list or with the java apps list? Also, is it possible to make another tabed menu that will appear by clicking left soft key, homepage is useless to me.
7. Is it possible to disable animations in user interface. I really hate it.
8. Is it possible to replace the music player with the some from the any W phone?

I've just purchased a new housing for my K800i because recently the strap came loose when i was walking and it flew off. The original housing is messed up badly so i got a few questions to ask about cnn.cn. Are their housings from the original manufacture? And has anyone dealth with this site before?
okay, I am looking for a few things,I am in Australia, and I have a Telstra Branded phone,I am searching for the latest UNBRANDED firmware (for australia, asia pacific or generic)and a utility to preform the flash with.it would also be good if there was some utility (similar to PKTools) that enabled me to access the phone memory.
I really want the allure brown, so I'm planning to change the whole housing, which includes front, middle, and back plate, and with the LCD lens and keypad change. From what I've read so far, this site seems to be good: GSM4WORLD. What do you guys think? Are their stuff actually authentic parts or extremely good after markets? If they're not good, what other place will you suggest I make a purchase from?
I recently flashed my k800i firmware to R1ED001, and its okay i dont have any major complaints except the red and green phone buttons have nothing to do with calling anyone, and when the screen turns off after a while you cant reactivate the phone by pressing on the joy stick. it only turns on when you press any other button.
My question, is there any other firmware for this phone that is a little different, or better, without having to sacrifice any features.
Ever get this problem where you take a picture, then delete it, then take another picture, and keep it. later when you go to look at the picture, its some how meshed into the photo that you deleted earlier, and looks deformed (but the thumbnail shows its fine. oh and i just remembered, sometimes when your looking at pics, it wont load the picture all the way, you know how it takes some time and it clarifies the pic, well sometimes it doesnt.
I am very new to debranding, and i have no idea what to do and which files i need and where to get them. I have a k800i on three. If someone would plz post a step by step guide, with direct links to the files i need.
I am getting no sound from the speaker on my k800i. I can not hear ringtones, or music. The sound does work on the ear phones, and the phone is not in silent mode. The volume is set high. I can hear the voice of other callers. Any ideas?
I have a Sony Ericsson K800i and until two days ago it was working just fine. But then it displayed the "No access to network." message and I couldn't make or receive any calls. I tried to restart the phone, to take off the battery, to reset the settings, to set a network manually etc etc but still nothing.
And while it is searching for a network, it is draining the battery too. It was fully charged this morning, and now it's only 25%. Normally, it should take 3-4 days to reach that power level. I should mention now that I'm in roaming in Munich, Germany since three weeks, and my phone bills are payed on time, so it shouldn't be an mobile operator problem.
My phone (K800i) has displayed no network coverage for almost a month now, I have tried network search auto and manual, and I have tried my SIM in other phones and it works fine. Does anyone have any suggestions because I am fed up of this phone I am having to use while I try and fix my own.
For some reason the SE website server has been down for the last 3 days. I've been trying to log in to the fun & downloads to get some more tones-images-themes but have received an error message, from the phone and my browser. Is there any other way I can download the K800i content?
