How To Update Firmware on SAMSUNG STAR / STAR 3G.

Hello Guys, this is my second attempt to make JAVA work on this phone. I was able to do this one also successfully with help of Dark Forest website!! :) Thanks Mate . (If you don't want to upgrade your firmware have a look at my previous post here)

OK so now the question is how to do the FIRMWARE UPGRADE & WHY TO DO IT?
Well for starters you can't INSTALL JAVA on STAR or any other samsung touch phones ....as you would do on any Nokia or Sony Ericsson phone .
Now if you haven't encountered any bug on the phone I'll mention some.

The message storage is suppose to be 500, but around only 200+ messages are stored in the phone & then it says inbox full. Also when you have an incoming call or outgoing you cannot see the number to which it is going (provided you have the number stored in your phonebook) When you have multiple numbers stored under single name this is a problem, this has been fixed as you get to see along with the name of the person calling you his/her number. 
To overcome all these bugs you have to upgrade your firmware!!! 

Now before going on further with the actually FIRMWARE UPGRADE(FLASHING) a disclaimer.
I HAVE NOT CREATED THIS METHOD NOR DO I TAKE CREDIT FOR IT. DARK FOREST & HIS TEAM ARE THE REAL INVENTORS , I AM JUST WRITING A METHOD SPECIFICALLY MENT FOR SAMSUNG STAR  and star 3G (Dont confuse it may lead to phone crash). IF IN THIS PROCESS YOU END UP SCREWING YOUR PHONE  I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE....but if you follow ALL my steps carefully i'll assure you nothing vil happen it works fine..!!!
 
So lets begin....:)
  • 1st -> You have to check if you have SIM LOCK enabled on your phone.Type *#7465625# and see. SIM LOCK SHOULD BE OFF. Do not proceed if you have it ON, get it to a shop & have it disabled.
  • 2nd -> BACKUP YOUR PHONE!!! Your contacts, messages, pictures, wallpapers, ringtones, music, gprs settings etc..
  • 3rd -> You will require USB cable (The one which came with your phone) & PC Suite. Make sure PC suite is installed before you start the process as it has the drivers necessary for communicating with your phone.Make sure the phone is communicating with your PC using PC Suite.
  • 4th->You need to download the firmware from here ....(FOR SAMSUNG STAR)
  •  Download the firmware here ....(FOR SAMSUNG STAR 3G)
  • 5th -> Now unpack the FIRMWARE files in a folder 
  • Now that you have done this, switch off your phone, remove the battery, sim & micro SD. Place the battery back inside & press the volume down button,camera button & the power button all together. the phone will power up & will have a screen as shown below. In the mean time also restart you PC (This is very IMPORTANT)

  • Side by side also download Multiloader from here
HERE ARE SOME VIDEO GUIDES BEFORE YOU FLASH ,YOU MUST WATCH THIS....

FOR SAMSUNG STAR

Now thats clear, lets begin.

1st -> Open up MULTILOADER & select the options in the exact order as shown below. 
2nd -> Now after selecting the MSM6275/MSM6280/MSM6290 (FOR STAR 3G)  AND BCMR2133 (FOR STAR)option, select the option as shown below.


3rd -> Now that the BOOT LOADER files are in place lets proceed to FULL DOWNLOAD. Do EXACTLY as shown below.



4th -> Now with Rsrc1

5th -> The next step is VERY IMPORTANT, choose Rsrc2 (LOW) & not (MID). MID is know to have problems while booting the phone.
6th -> Now the Factory Setting files.
7th -> & finally the MASTER ROM.

8th -> At last the MULTILOADER should look like below, now click on the PORT SEARCH
9th->Once you have pressed PORT SEARCH, the COM PORT will come up in the filed shown, Click on DOWNLOAD.

10->Now sit back and wait, Multi loader will erase the rom and prepare it for rewrite in a matter of seconds. immediately after, it will begin the download process, this could take up to 20 minutes depending on you computers speed.

** When it’s finished, it will show “ok complete”.


11th-> Unplug the phone from the USB cable, reinstall the sim and SD card.
  *NOTE :Some models and some will not, if yours does not restart at this point, take out the battery a few seconds then reinsert it. NOTE ***

12th->Now with every thing is complete, You can perform a hard reset by typing *2767*3855# into the hand set (but not necessary.)


13th-> When the phone resets type *#1234# into your handset to check your new firmware ver.

That's it you are done. 

 **NOTE**
If your phone fails the flash for any reason, DO NOT TRY AND RESTART IT!!!!! Restart the computer and try the flash again! YES YOU MUST RESTART THE COMPUTER and try again.

The electric toothbrush can help remove the bacteria more easily from your mouth and
the sanitizer can help keep the bacteria from consistently infecting you over and over again.
