The i8910 HD gets HX-V5

The HX series of firmwares for the Samsung i8910 HD continue to roll out, with v5 the best yet, with a number of important fixes and detailed improvements, including, critically, fixing the Java certificate problem and improving battery life. As ever, these firmwares are 100% unofficial, but they're easy to apply* and can dramatically transform this old but still powerful smartphone. Comments welcome if you get a chance to try it on your i8910. Changelog extracts and link below.

Read on in the full article.

This is great, but I just 'sigh' that the i8910 doesn't have user preservation data mode, like most other handsets.

I'm getting a bit tired of re-setting up and re-downloading everything.

True. But hopefully this will be the last firmware you'll need for a while. V4 would have been, but for the missing Java certificate, which was a showstopper for me. Anyway, setting up devices is fun! Isn't it? 8-)

Satio

I'd love to read a similar in-depth review about unofficial firmware updates for the Sony Ericsson Satio.

you're right steve, sorry...my fault...

I repeat the message here, so that you can thrash the other one (and delete this intro ^^ )

Are you looking for different firmwares?
I am faenil, i8910 firmware cooker, lots of people already know me, but if you never tried my firmwares or you have never heard about them,
just give this a look

www.i8910tuning.com

I can assure you that none will be disappointed!!

I didn't know there was a modding scene for these devices? Mind you, the main reason we're dropping our usual guard and reporting on these i8910 HD firmwares are because Samsung itself doesn't seem very keen about pressing on with the device - and the hardware's too good to waste.

It's also trivial to bootload an i8910 HD, whereas I imagine it's a LOT harder for Nokia and Sony Ericsson devices.

The pace of updates to these firmwares is pretty extreme. 3 days after my post, a brand new build of v5 is available, with a turbo mode to run at the full 600MHz, comments welcome if anyone here tries it!

@ Steve

After seeing the video on the latest HX, I decided to try it. I'll report back tomorrow.

OK this firmware is perfect (faster, smoother) except for one annoying bug. It doesnt save my wifi connections, so everytime I connect to wifi, I have to re-enter my WEP key. It seems not everyone has this problem, so I am going to try and re-install the firmware and se if that helps.

You need settings > connectivity > destinations > Access Point. There you can add a new access point, and the wifi password will be remembered.

Amazing firmware. Brilliant work. Thanks for making a Perfect phone even better. I cannot wait to see what amazing things you may do for the i8920 Omnia HD2 if that is your next phone!
