Upgrade Corby Pro firmware

WARNING!! THIS POST IS REALLY OLD! I DONT RECOMMEND FOLLOWING THIS AGAIN. 

Hi,
Now we will see how to update/upgrade your Samsung Corby Pro's firmware
This is the latest firmware available to update! B5310XXJF1

Benefits of updating to this firmware:

  • Phone becomes faster!
  • One click JAVA install. No need to create HTML file, just click and install.
  • No restarts! Phone is stable.
  • Several other changes :)
BACKUP YOUR CONTACTS AND EVERYTHING ELSE USING KIES BEFORE YOU PROCEED. I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE IF ANYTHING GOES WRONG. THIS IS TOTALLY SAFE IF YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS PROPERLY.MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE IS UNLOCKED!


BEFORE PROCEEDING FURTHER , DIAL THIS *#7465625#. 
CHECK IF SIMLOCK AND NETWORK LOCK IS OFF. IF IT ISN'T, THEN STOP READING AND FORGET IT. IF YOUR PHONE IS FROM AMERICA, THEN DON'T TRY THIS.


Download this file(Includes firmware and software to update your phone)


Password for the rar file -  nickfunzone.blogspot.com


How to update


Stuff required :

  • Corby Pro (of course)
  • The USB cable
  • Firmware(Included in download)
  • Multiloader(Included in download)
So let's begin!
Make sure Samsung Kies in installed and you have connected your phone to the pc at least once.
Get kies

Extract the firmware to your desktop or anywhere else. Disable your phone lock and SIM lock.
Switch off your phone and remove your Memory card and SIM card.

Put your cellphone into Download mode. Press and hold the following buttons:
     - Volume down.
     - Power button.
     - Camera button.
Connect your phone with your pc with the USB cable.

Run the MultiLoader

Click screenshot to enlarge


Select the BRCM2153 on the right side of the program (see screenshot)
Tick Bootchange and Full Download
Leave Master Rom unticked (it bricks your phone)

Click the Boot button and browse to the extracted firmware and select the "boot" folder.
Click the Amss button and browse to the extracted firmware and select the amss.bin file.
Do the same for the rest of the buttons and select the appropriate files except FOTA, Tune, ETC.
Don't forget to select the PFS button.


Click on Port search
When the port search is ready, click download
It will take about 3 minutes. When it says "All files complete", disconnect your phone and insert your memory card and SIM card. Switch on your phone.
Enjoy!

Use this code to perform a hard reset - *2767*3855# (it resets without confirmation so do it only if you want to reset your phone)
Check back for firmware updates! Make sure the power doesn't go off while upgrading. Best if you have a UPS :)

what is the password

Nick said...

Rudra Rahul said...

Your posts are awesome.
Can u mention what are the changes after upgrading Corby Pro.

and I have doubt regarding this mobile.
In the widget list, there is a widget showing "No event" always. what is the use of it??

Nick said...

Phone becomes faster and more stable as it doesn't restart as it normally does :)
The biggest noticeable change is the ability to install java files with a single click ;). In the previous firmwares, installing java games and apps like that wasn't possible

Oh, don't worry about that! That's just the widget to display events like missed calls :). When you have no missed calls, it shows no event

Rudra Rahul said...

Do we loose warranty by doing this???

I think we shouldn't take that risk we can go to Samsung service center to update

Nick said...

@Rudra Rahul
you can :)
but i dont think you will lose warranty. im not sure

ashay said...

@nik.....
its gr8 thnx man......



hey can u try to insert the smiles in msgin and update it?????
i really wantd tht....




also..
i knw its weard bt..
can we change os of corby pro??
i want to make it android.....
can we do tht?????

Nick said...

@ashay
sorry , smilies are not present in the new samsung phones :(

i too want android on this phone! ive looked everywhere and nobody has found a way to port android to corby pro. Its risky as creating the bootloaders is on trial and error basis and nobody is willing to take risk of bricking their phone

Kiron said...

Hi Nick

When i start download i get the following message -
--

Download Start Ch[0]
Warring : Security fail!!

--

ne clue what's wrong?

thx!

Nick said...

are u getting this error from the download website or ur phone?

Santosh said...

Hey Nick, thank you very much. I have upgraded successfully.

Nick said...

ur welcome :)

ASHAY said...

hey buddy..
is thr any exitin themes or some softwers lyk smartphones r available?????

Nick said...

nope :(
sadly we dont have themes :(

Anonymous said...

After upgrading with this Firmware.
1. Phone speed increase (normal)
2. Install Jar and Jad files directly
3. WIFI default view is List view
4. Having some network settings problem
5. PC connection problems reduced
Overall rating after upgrading is dominated by 2nd point.

Vaibhav said...

Hi Nick
It looks a very nice post.Thanks for it, but I have few concerns.
The biggest flaw with Corby Pro I found that its default browser just can not handle high quality web pages and video(through high speed WiFi).The browser closes giving OutOfMemory Error and video buffering doesn't go beyond 0%.Does this firmware upgrade addresses those issues also?

Nick said...

well, i use opera mini to browse(inbuilt browser sucks)
i never had issues while streaming video from youtube, so i guess its fine then

Vaibhav said...

@Nick
Thanks for the reply.
yes i do the same for browsing, and the youtube application works fine with gprs but jst try to connect it with a high speed wifi connection (m using 1 mbps) and then stream the video. I'll hope you'll face same problem, if not then probably there is some issue with my handset.

Anonymous said...

Whether the same update is found in Samsung Website?

Anonymous said...

There is no update posted in the SAMSUNG website for Corby Pro,whether its reliable?

Nick said...

@Vaibhav
i havent browsed using wifi, there are no open wifi zones here :(

@ anonymous

yeah, this method is reliable :)

swapnil said...

can it be same like installing themes in corby &
after upgrading can we get the iphone look?

Nick said...

nopes, we cant install themes on this phone :(

swapnil said...

how can wer install themes using this firmware
is this firmware support nth or sis themes?

& whats all in net that we can get iphone interface in corby?

Nick said...

it doesnt support themes

kishu said...

Hey Nick....Im getting the
"Warring:Security fail!!"
in the Downloader Application in the COM6 field

kishu said...

Hey Nick...thanks for the download...succesfully updated os after hard reset of the phone...but lost gprs settings...do u know how to get them back? Thanks a lot and keep updating :)

Nick said...

ur welcome :)
just call your operators customer care to get your setting :D

swapnil said...

hey nick...
i updated firmware successfully but when i click the calibration setting my phone get restart

what to do ?

Nick said...

did u flash it properly?? its working fine for my phone. Try a hard reset using the code i gave you in the tutorial and see :)

mutya said...

hi nick...Thanks...with your help i have updated successfully...can you list out some more changes in phone rather than speed boosts,java prob solved,etc..
AND how can i remove E symbol from top..its been there since i have updated..
HOW can i increase java apps speed..there are quite slow then before[before i updated]
PLS HELP

Nick said...

i dont know actually, but overall phone is much better and stable. Not much new features added
i have a even newer version with me which includes call recorder and dictionary,etc
but its built for the french corby pro and so its an AZERTY keyboard instead of QWERTY

to turn off tht edge symbol, dial
*#4777*8665#
untick power on attach
it will go and get activated only when u use net :)

mutya said...

@Nick

mutya said...

and the app speed..can we increase..specially opera browser..its quite slow

Nick said...

do you mean the net speed? then you need a better connection. If you're talking about operas speed, then its quite fast actually, theres no issues with that

mutya said...

nick do we have motion sensor games like the rooler coaster..

Nick said...

yes we do have, but most of them are horrible! useless actually

Anonymous said...

hey mate, when we connect phone to pc, a screen comes in front, CONNECTED, blocking all mobile actions like menu message etc, is there a way to stop that without disconnecting the mobile

Rudra Rahul said...

Can u post that latest firmware B5310XXJJ1.

does it has really dictionary and call recorder???

saad said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
saad said...

hey dude all sms in my phone are deleted by itself!!!!!!!!!!
:(

Nick said...

@Rudra Rahul

its supposed to have call recorder and dictionary, cos the firmware ddjd2 has them both but im not able to get that
and XXJ1 was made in october 2010 so it should be having more features. But the thing has a AZERTY keyboard, means if u press Q u get A, u press W u get Z,etc. Do u still want it? ill upload it for u if u want

@saad
multiloader is in the download file itself
ya, after upgrading ur fone will be cleared of everything, thats why in the tutorial i told to make a backup of everything using kies

Anonymous said...

i have lost thr arabic language :(:(what can i doooooooo?

Nick said...

Rudra Rahul said...

how to backup and restore messages in corby pro using samsung kies???

any alternate way.

I want DDJD2 firmware...

oceaneagle said...

I have an unsolvable problem. If I pair my B5310 with my in car blue tooth hands free it instantly freezes with a page of gobbledegook on the screen. The only fix is to remove and re-insert the battery. I have done a full factory re-set which worked for a day or so then the same fault came back. Can anyone help? byrona@oceaneagle.fsnet.co.uk
PS. Factory re-set does not re-lock the phone if it is uunlocked, which is good news.

Nick said...

@rudra rahul
srry bro, u hav to get ddjd2 nly
revert back to previous n get ddjd2 from samsung service centre

@anonymous
go to service centre n update to ddjd2

@oceaneagle
have you tried pairing it with other handsfree devices?

Rudra Rahul said...

Corby pro not supporting Bluetooth A2DP profile (to listen songs in bluetooth headset).

The same bluetooth headset working on other phone.

How to backup messages in this phone??

Anonymous said...

does the ddjd2 firmware solve the problem in installing games....?

oceaneagle said...

I am scared to attempt this but I do have a major fault on my bluetooth. If I pair with my in-car hands free kit the phone freezes and displays a load of geek talk. It is OK with my PC though. Will this firmware cure it? I am not confident doing this firmware, I am an OAP.

Anonymous said...

With my other Bluetooth kit it is unable to pair because it isn't being asked for a pin number.

Nick said...

@rudra rahul
go to kies
select message manager
click save to pc after selecting all your messages :)

@anonymous 1
yes it does

@oceaneagle
well, i can help you if you tell me what the "geek talk" is, and if it pairs with your pc then its your car bluetooth thats faulty, try pairing with more devices and see if its successful

Anonymous said...

hey wat i have to do to get the previous firmware back because if i m connecting my phone with samsung kies then its not connecting

Nick said...

its not firmware problem, go to phone settings, select pc connections and select samsung kies
now connect it
and see if the drivers are getting installed
have you been able to connect it before?

Anonymous said...

ya before the update of firmware n it is samsung kies only n wen i connect n go to samsung apps den it says its only for samsung and not for other operating system and thnx 4 replying nick n plz reply again

Nick said...

oh, you mean you could access samsung apps before?
i couldnt :O
its only for bada and android, i didnt know we could use samsung apps :O
ill confirm it with someone who hasnt updated their firmware :)
in the meantime, get apps from getjar.com

Anonymous said...

Hello Nick! I've been messing with my CorbyPro & I can't simply seem to find its current firmware. Where do I find it? I know it's in "Settings" somewhere. Would appreciate it! Thanks!

badass_bebot said...

In addition to above, would upgrading my firmware fix the "phone memory full" problem during certain web browsing occasions?

badass_bebot said...

Oh yeah! Last one, the "No response from AP" & "DNS failed" which I also get once in a while when trying to connect to wifi, will it be resolved too? In relation to that, have some of y'all encountered that?

Nick said...

@umair mujtaba
the blue means its connected but no data is being transfered
red blinking means data is being transfered
simply red actually i dont know,maybe its getting ready to transfer data?

@badass bebot
check the post, i have mentioned how to get your current firmware :)

no it wont fix that problem, thats the hardware limitation of this phone, we dont have enough memory... unlike smartphones

i get that too while connecting to some wi-fi spots. but i have been able to get it working in other areas, you have to configure your wifi to match the hotspot you are trying to connect to

Anonymous said...

hey nick how can we get the original firmware of corby pro plz reply the firmware we got with the phone plz bro reply

Nick said...

Nick said...

nope i dont have it
however if you google a while you may find crazy penguin full version

badass bebot said...

I downloaded Opera Mini 5.1 for my Corby Pro. I already used it to surf but when I exit the net, I can't seem to find Opera anywhere in my phone. It seems like I have to go to Internet >> Opera mobile >> Download >> which will take me to Opera & that's the only time I could use it to surf. Any way of getting around this? Shortcut please. Thanks! =)

Nick said...

it should be in "games and more"
disappearing opera? :O this is a first one =))

Badass bebot said...

Haha! Found it! You were right. It was in "Games and more". Lol! Anyway, do you know if I can put Skype too? Know where I can download it? Thank you! =)

hey i bought my phone last year in sep. and it had the dictionary and call recorder, but i was experiencing the same restart problem, nor was i able to install java apps in one click. but after donig the firmware update ive lost both the dictionary and call recorder.
any ideas on how i could get them back?

Nick said...

sorry you cant get those back.... for dictionary you can google around for a java app.... the call recorder is lost ..

Anonymous said...

well do u hav links to any other firmware with the dictionary & call recorder, or is is there a way i can rollover to my previous firmware.

p.s.
my firmware version on kies is coming up as
B5310XXJF1/B5310OXAJE4
XXJF1 i believe is what i had earlier

Nick said...

XXJF1 is what you have now
XAJE4 is something else, im guessing the csc or something

you can rollover if you have your previous firmware...

and i have a problem in alaram clock...... when i restart my mobile,all alaram settings will be erased!(like:snooze time,tone,vibraition,alaram tone e.t.c)

pls help me what to do....

Nick said...

@hacker student
i dont know that that happens

@prakash
Tones remain same, alarm settings get erased in between for me too ( when i restart it doesnt, but in between it gets deleted)

no need for premium, if the file is available, you should be able to download, your internet must have gotten disconnected while downloading, and there is no support to resume download

ok,can u tell me few details about firmware?
what is it?
is it o.s updating?


y dont alarm settings be stable even after having new firmware? is there any other way to make to work proper?

Nick said...

@prakash

yes you can upgrade, but use a FULL firmware then, see if it has a FFS file, if it does, it is full firmware. difference is size is because it isnt full firmware, and while flashing full firmware, steps are diferent. check samfirmware for the tutorial

@anonymous
download mode is activatable only while phone is switched off!

Prakash said...

what to do if the firmware is not full??? for the missing files in the new firmware,can we use the files of previous firmware which i have downloaded?
in samfirmware there r 3 groups.

1)europe.
2)asia.
3arabic.


which one shall i use(i am from india)

asia is having only 1 old firmware.
but europe has new firmware..is there any problem if i use europe's firmware?

Nick said...

no dont use files from other firmware!!
your phone wil still work if you use europe firmware, but you cant go to service centre, flash to indian firmware befor going there

Prakash said...

how to flash?

Prakash said...

hey if i go to service centre, will i get dictonary and call recorder option? if yes..how much they will charge?

Prakash said...

nick,
what is the meaning of flash?
... flash means updating firmware?

please reply for this and previous post

and hey i found free voice and video call software for andriod and symbian phones.... it works!

www.fring.com

Nick said...

flashing is modyfing internal files, get the tutorial from samfirmware

service centre wont charge you, better flash to indian firmware first before going there

Prakash said...

but PFS file was missing... what shall i do?shall i continue upgrade without that file?

Deep said...

DUDE PLEASE HELP ME OUT!!!!

I was browsing net to fix a problem with my phone and figured I can do that by upgrading my firmware. I saw a post and tried to do that but for some reason the upgrade process was interrupted and now my phone doesn't work at all, it just shows some error. I guess I need a hard reset code while the mobile is switched off. I tried to follow your instructions though but the multiloader doesn't detect my phone since it is switched off I guess.

PLEASE HELP....!!!!!

Hi Nick,

After clicking on port search nothing happens. I clicked many times. Download doesnot work.

Phone is in download mode. pc and phone connected via cable. I check listed everything acc. to the multiloader screen shot. sim card, mem card removed.

What can be the issue? Do I have to run kies in background as well? Any idea what would be the case?

Serial port open error!

wats up with this update all it shows is the above and myphone wont even start now

Anuj said...

Happened with me as well. You might have kept the kies open in the background. Try again after closing the Kies in background will work. Don;t worry. I updated it twice. Used one more firmware but it was azerty instead of qwerty ;).
Dont worry try it and it will be done. Just follow the steps properly.

Cheers...
