Lightbulb How to flash Omnia HD in Windows Vista/7 without virtual machines (ROM Flash or PCS)

All you have to do to get it working is to install latest PC-Studio then follow the instructions on this page:
How to flash and debrand your samsung i8910

The only problem is installing the SSDN driver. This can be achieved by installing in compatibility mode for WinXP SP2.
In Windows 7 you do it like this:
- right click the setup file (SSDN_V1.1.808.7165_SETUP_whql.exe)
- click Troubleshoot compatibility
- choose Troubleshoot program
- Check only The program worked in earlier versions of windows... and click Next
- Choose Windows XP (Service pack 2) and click next
- Click start program and follow the installation instructions
- Reboot if asked and you are done

After this update in PC Studio works fine and using Symbian ROM Falshing tool should work as well.

I suspect this should work in 64 bit versions also as I used it on XP 64bit and it worked without a hitch.

Good luck.

PC Studio works fine in win7 64 ultimate, it just kinda installs the wrong driver (32 bit) during installation.
You need to manually update your driver to the 64 bit one (found on cd or downloaded setup folder) and it'll work.

If you flash your phone, you'll loose the contacts saved to the phone.
Just make sure all of them are saved to your sim card, and you won't loose any of them.

As for firmware, there are quite a few discussions here on the forums.
If you're searching for a hacked firmware, have a look at the hyperx threads.

Hmm too bad this doesn't work for me :s. The installer loads almost full bar and then it says: "SAMSUNG SYMBIAN USB Download Driver was not installed successfully".
Any ideas?

sorry I've been away for a while.

@rvans80: PC Studio does not see your phone because the driver I mentioned in the tutorial is not installed. And you have to install it manually as described in the tutorial via the win xp sp2 compatibility mode.

@desvbo: I'm sorry but I do not want to copy other peoples work so the link to the tutorial I have provided should be enough. As for the download links the versions of pc studio change so just download it from samsungmobile the SSDN driver download link is provided in the tutorial i linked.

for other: make sure you follow the steps exactly and as I said I am not sure if the same works on 64bit win7 as I have not tried it. Silver mentioned that there is 64bit version of the driver so that might be worth a try. As for 32bit it worked for me first time no problems at all.

That must be a different problem as the problem I was having was only with the update in PC Studio where it would say it can not find the phone as it is looking for the download driver which is used for updating firmware, but the rest of PC studio worked fine. Make sure you have the all the other drivers installed from cd and make sure you select PC Studio mode on the phone when you connect it.
