Flashing

This is for experimental use only, Flash At Your Own Risk!!!! You can not back up your original firmware, so you will loose any applications install by your provider.

SIM LOCK or NETWORK LOCK
First thing to check is that your phone does not have simlock! If it does, you MUST take your phone to a shop that can remove it. It is not expensive but MUST be done first or you will FREEZE your phone. If you freeze you phone it will cost you even more to get it fixed! Just type *#7465625# and look for Sim Lock or Network and make sure it says OFF.

Prepare the PC

Here you must download the essentials. First download Samsungs New PC Studio This contains the drivers you for the computer to recognize the phone in bootloader mode. When you download go ahead and install it, when it is finished restart the computer and plug up your phone. If NPS dose not start on its own it OK just start it by clicking the icon. When it comes up it should recognize your phone, IF IT Does NOT, unplug the phone and set it for “mass storage” then try it again and should work. Next download the Multiloader it is the software you will use to flash your phone. Last, download the firmware you want.  Once the firmware is downloaded then unzip it to a location you can easily find it on your computer.

Prepare Your Phone

Back up every thing you dont want to loose! Every thing! Even phone numbers and pictures! So many people have failed to do this and there is no way to recover it! After you back up do a Hard Reset on your phone. Type *2767*3855# and wait for the phone to restart. After it restarts, let it sit about 3 min before proceeding.
Multiloader
