Newest Firmware I8910XEIF4 available to Flash.
i8910 Firmware I8910XEIF4

Samsung i8910 Omnia HD Firmware I8910XEIF4

Thanks to our forum member Pavel, we now have the latest i8910 firmware files available in our forum. The latest is I8910XEIF4, although this is Russian Generic firmware. It does support English and is unbranded (No operator logos or customisation). We also have Spanish firmware available now for any users after Spanish on their i8910 HD. (By the way these are free and not from paid firmware sites)

I’ve flashed I8910XEIF4 can report the following changes:

  • New apps installed like Utalk (No idea what this is), Russian GPS navigation demo.
  • Web browser is more stable. I used it for 20 minutes and it did not crash on pages IE6 did !!
  • Camera photos seem tweaked? I can’t prove it but it seems better in some situations.
  • Video still records audio via AMR codec :(
  • Signal strength seems the same
  • 151 Mb free ram
  • Audio-pausing bug Fixed
  • YouTube has been added to Communities
  • Battery life: I will report back my findings after a full charge and will see how long it last.

*Note these are not official firmware releases, debranding your phone could void your warrenty!

    Could I ask you to find some time and test whether the call recording works with this phone?
    You may try this program:

    There is NO UK version yet. These will de-brand your phone then you can change the language. I done mine with polish firmware and it is fantastic now its de-branded!

    to all who want to debrand make sure you download and keep a copy of the orange firmware just in case. Cos i had battery problems after debrand and i got the phone orange branded again with the orange firmware. Managed to take the phone back to the store and get a replacement handset with another 28 days cover

    According to this italian website, there will be 2 official firmware updates. The first will be release next week and will enhance general performance and batery life. The second will be released one week later and fixes the codec problem

    I have translated the page with google translate

    FARUK….which version of the Orange firmware did you flash back to…?

    The one that came with mine was IE2, if I remember correctly. The one in Pavels link is newer than what I had….

    * UNITED KINGDOM(ORA) (Orange UK)
    * Phone : I8910BVIE7 / CSC : I8910ORAIE4 / BB : I8910XXIE6

    Is this newer Orange version available via PC Suite updater or something?? If I were to re-flash with this, wouldn’t it be obvious to Orange?

    Thx

    when i took my phone back the nice people at the orange store did not believe i had a battery problem. Tell them the battery is not lasting more than 6 hours but when they phoned customer services they were ok with it and gave me a new handset. They did not check the firmware or anything.cos everything was orange branded anyway.

    Does anyone know how to get the Facebook community thing working? After you take a picture/video, you can upload to the web and select Facebook. But my phone asks for ID & Password every time – then does nothing. If I try again, it asks for the ID & Password again. Debranded…don’t think Orange allows it on their firmware

    PLEASE READ VERY IMPORTANT

    I don’t understand something here,
    As far as I can see local symbian developers are fixing couple of bugs and they are publishing new firmwares themselves.
    You guys all install those firmwares right?
    I am a programmer as well… let me tell you something…

    How do you know that local developer put a kind of Trojan in the firmware and all people that installs that gets infected?
    For ex, how would you know when you logon your email password from your phone that also send info to his account from backround ??
    Same for anything could be done, he can get who did you sent text messages to ?
    Who did you call? Which website did you visit? how many people in your contact list, who did you speak when where? where are you know? He can get millions of information by the firmwares you guys installing without thinking!!!

    If all those firmwares are NOT offical DO NOT USE IT!!!

    Hi I flashed my Orange i8910 to the russian firmware not a problem using 1.50 however been looking at the latest firmware for the phone as per your links to the Italian Firmware, flashed that as well no problems, but I couldnt but notice that the Device Manager you have a screen dump up at the top of the screen says 19/06/2009 well today is only the 17th “Time Travel!!! ”

    Just wondered, just looking for the latest firmware, can someone point me in the right direction link would be nice.

    if you have a german phone and use the latest german samsung PC suite to check for new firmware, it will just tell you the phone is fully up to date.

    If however, you download the swiss version of the PC suite from Samsung’s site, which is a newer version, it will find the update mentioned in this article and install it on the phone for you automatically.

    Too bad it won’t do the G2 version, at least not if your firmware is the german version.

    I hope Samsung gets their act together soon and makes the G2 firmware available over the updater, as having to send the phone to a Samsung Service Center for 2 weeks is just ridiculous.

    @ Online1
    .
    its generally a useful warning, but the way you’re shouting and crying about it as if the world is going to end makes me wonder if you’re a Samsung hack, just trying to keep people from taking control over their phones.

    Dan, got it sorted
    Your ID & Password is your Facebook ID NUMBER…not email address. To get your Facebook ID number, go to your profile, the number should be in there – password is obviously your password. Then it should let you upload no problem. Works for me
