Sony Ericsson :: W890i - Latest PC Suite / Installing Drivers
Jan 4, 2009
I downloaded the latest PC suite for my W890i and ran it. When it comes to installing drivers it takes forever and the progress bar stays the same. It hasn't frozen it just the progress bar doesn't move. I am on Vista so does the software support Vista? Is there a good alternative to SE PC suite?
I would like your assistants very much if you don;t mind? the problem that i have is this: i have a SonyEricsson W890i, locked to o2 uk. the firmware is R1FA030. what is the Latest firmware for the W890i? how do i unlock and debrand/update the firmware on the W890i? what do i use? Wotanserver,davinciteam or totalgsm? which one is cheaper? I would appreciate a kind reply from you guys. please.
I downloaded and installed the latest opera mini on my w890i. it was working fine for the first couple of weeks then a got a situation. The situation is that whenever I start the application I always have to accept the license agreement and it never saves my settings. It always installs whenever I start this application.
I've searched google for drivers for k800 on XP 64 bit, but haven't found any. So, i've installed Sony's PC Suite. After installation have completed I connected my phone and the "found new hardware" wizard appeared, I let the wizard search the folder of PC Suite's installation, e.g "C:Program FilesSony EricssonSony Ericsson PC SuiteDrivers", there, windows have found the needed drivers.FYI, windows installs a few different hardware drivers for the phone (about 5), but when it's done, u can work with the phone perfectly.
I have a SE w810i and im having alot of difficulty installing the USB Drivers for it. i followed everything on 'step 7' on the tutorial, (davinciteam) and i cant get it working. I locate the file 'GGSEMC' and im not sure if it does anything, but windows tells me that its a 'Sony Ericsson Flash Driver' so i say OK and install it. I then go into my device manager and it doesn't say anything about a SEMC Driver, just USB Composite Device and USB Mass Storage Device (2x).I am very unsure on what to do, Ive tried it on two different computers, and the same thing. Any help will be appreciated.
After recently updating my W705 I cannot get the PC suite to recognize it. There seems to be a problem either with installing the drivers for the device or the device not being recognized because it "doesn't have a signature".?! It can be recognized and connects properly when in USB mode, which is strange, but it no longer has a 'phone mode' option, only a 'PC mode' option. The phone works fine by itself but I need to restore all my data to it. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the software many times and checked my USB ports and cable. Any other ideas for me to try?
Recently I bought a new K800i. I upgraded the firmware to the most recent one: R8BA024 CID52. I been looking for a good guide that can show and explain in simple words how to change those drivers (To Peter's HiFi Ver2), but I just can't find any.
I know that I'm not the first one asking and I've already searched the site for answers but every single time I get directed to the same topics and sites. If someone would be nice enough to write step by step and maybe help others who'll seek the same answer as I am.
I was installing the latest software update on my new Satio tonight and didn't realise I had insufficient battery charge until midway through the update. The phone crashed before finishing the update and now doesn't seem to take a charge, I have taken out the battery, SIM card and memory card and put them all back in, and had the phone connected to the charger for over an hour, but I have no indication from the phone that it is charging and it won't boot up. I tried running the update again but it failed again as well.
I have been unable to install an update of the PC Suite because "Old cable drivers can not be removed".WinXP service pack 3.I cannot remove certain Nokia entries from the registry using Regedit.Nokia support have suggested I do a complete re-install of XP which I dread doing because of the time it will take.Does anyone have any suggestions?
I have a w890i "lmao" and its giving me the worst time om my life, it almost always has a "Emergincy Call's Onley" display or "No Networks" its driveing me crazy i have to pysicaly go search for a network for this phone to find one, Where other phones normaly would have signal, and it displays 4 bars of signal and isnt the phone sepose to pickup signal automaticaly. I tryd every thing phone update to reinstall phone software and then again phone update but it always say's your phone already have the latest software.
I think the W890i looks better than W880. They are very similar and almost in the same size, BUT still W890 looks better. With bigger screen and stronger key button may be one of the reason. And the bronze (brown) metallic casing may be one bigger reason afterall.
Unboxing photos attached for you to judge

Metallic back cover removed
W890i width comparison with W880i
W890i thickness comparison with W880i
W890i front design comparison with W880i. You can see the screen is bigger and the keys are bigger and stronger. Not as thin as the W880i keys.
W890i back design comparison with W880i. This time the back cover is all metal and with matched color.
I'm thinking about buying a new phone, but I can't really decide between these two phones. Mainly, I would use it as a music player, but as I know, w890i has a really crappy camera, so my main question is: How is the w890i's music quality compared to k850i's? Is it a way better?Because if not, I think I should buy the k850, it costs more only 30 euros.
I have HONG KONG VERSION W890i FW R1ED003 prg12027322_hong_kong camera version 3.3 video call version 3.6 also i have CHINA VERSION MOCHO BROWN W R1FA030 rg12027323_CHINA_AK camera version 3.4 video call version 3.7 ALL THIS WAS UPDATED ON THE SEUS PROGRAM FROM SE SITE.NOTE:The later version i have (R1FA030) has some fixes including when phone is in standby mode and then press any button to view clock the screen lights up for a split second and then normal. this has been fixed in this version.
1- In my w890i when i increase/reduce the volume or when i stop a song i hear a cracking sound this happens when i have megabass or bass in equlizer. i also notice these sounds when i have my headphone attached to the phone.
2. I also noticed that when i have equlizer set at normal i hear these cracking sound (krrr sound) when i start a song and stop it after 2-3 sec and when i increase/reduce the volume during the first 20-30 sec i hear krrr and after that it disappears.
What is the code for the w890i to disable USB charging? What is the code for that "special"l menu? I know that this subject was talked before but I can't find it and I really need to disable my phones USB charging mode to save the charging-cycles of the battery as I use the phone as a modem right now
I notice that the call volume is really low even when maxed out when i turn on the speaker.can hardly make out what they saying unless im in a quiet room.music on the speaker is not as loud as the k850i.this is suppose to be a walkman phone right? so why does the sound from speaker sounds low?
