1.6 update?


1.6 update? I’m posting this out of sheer morbid curiosity. It’s a link for the Orange v1.63.00 ROM update for the SPV and SPV E100 from a personal website here…

I have not checked this.. it comes from the Netherlands too – and will probably re-lock your Orange handset if you try it. I’ve also been given the info that…

“The only downside of the versions above 1.6 is that you can’t unlock them from the Orange developer website. They will be updating their database somewhere in december, so from then it is possible to unlock. This update has the fix for MSN Messenger in it, and a fix for MMS in Holland.”

I’d advise that you wait for the OFFICIAL update from Orange direct. If anyone wants to try the link above then please be aware that it isn’t direct from the Orange website, and is a Netherlands-based update. I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS AND I WOULD ADVISE YOU NOT TO USE THE LINK ABOVE.

I am only posting this so that the relevant “bods” know that there’s an unoffficial release out there…

Update!

Xenose mailed in to say…

“I have managed to find a copy of the dutch 1.6 update, it works great after changing locale to english, T9, msn everything works great. Only one thing I can find so far, the shutdown picture seems to be missing…..”

“So if you can’t wait until the official release, it is well worth a try….”
