Exclamation Firmware problems ...

... i have searched this forum and others for the answer to my problem.

okay .. I have a sendo x with the spn: 8Y0H-13171-0x000.
My firmware is an old one: x.1.20.1.2

I am attempting to upgrade the firmware. I cannot for the life of me.
I have the correct drivers. The computer 'sees' the phone in the upgrade mode.
I click continue to start the upgrade process and every time it fails. EVERY TIME. I do not understand.

I have tried the following:
I have downloaded the older firmware: x.1.56.2.2
Restarted the computer and the phone
Searched for 2 weeks on the internet

I have heard that upgrading the firmware through the sd card is possible. Can someone please give me some information regarding this.

I need to upgrade the firmware. The version I have is very frustrating as it makes the phone move at a snails pace.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Thanks again for providing a reliable and informative forum.

What do you mean with "every time fails"? You get an error message from the upgrade utility or from the phone?

From your SPN number, I'm guessing you've got a Pixmania handset (but one with a VERY early firmware).

Try downloading the latest (1.98.5.2) firmware - either use the "French (voir release notes) version, or the Dutch version. Even though the Dutch version has a different SPN, it will work on your phone.

Also, please tell us what the error message you're getting is, and when it occurs.

Hi there. Thanks for all the help.

OK... I have attempted the voir firmware and what happens is it will go to an error screen as soon as I attempt to begin the update. The phone and the computer "see" eachother but disconnect as soon as the update process is started.

I also want to know if the voir and the dutch will lock my phone back to an operator.

Thanks again for all the help.

In attempting to DL the Dutch version, I have discovered that the SPN of the voir DL is Dutch version. Maybe my phone only can be updated with the voir firmware and I can't get it??

Thanks

The Dutch firmware is unlocked, so will work on any phone, so that shouldn't be blocking you.

Thanks for the info.

I have been hearing [reading] that I can update the firmware from the SD card. Can anyone confirm this??

Thanks

As I understand it, you need a special version of the firmware to do that. It's not a supported upgrade method for customers.

Does the computer keep dis-connecting saying firmware update failed, or something similar?
Did it get part way through once before, then die?

I'm seeing Kev tomorrow, so I'll ask him if you post your answers before then.

That is EXACTLY what happens. It says 'firmware update failed' It started doing it once before but it took hours so I was thinking it wasn't right. So I took my chances and disconnected and everything was ok. So I am @ this point now.

Thanks, any help / tips are appreciated.

same problem here!!

I bought a Sendo X 3 days ago.

The problem is that the Memory Card isn't recognised!.
(MC works perfectly in my laptop and it is FAT)

So I wanted to try to re-install the firmware.
The computer sees the Sendo, the cable is ok and I can start uploading, but then it fails!!!!!

If someone can help me with the 2 problems.......
