Flashing Samsung JET


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.

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.
Before you connect the phone to the computer, turn it off and put in bootloader mode. Depending on your phone this can be done in several different ways, so refer to the flash guide for this step.
Now you are ready for the flash guide! Click here to proceed

  1. hi man i have just flash it

    but i lost the Arabic language

    i need it man
    u didn't say that i will lost the Arabic
    please man i need it

  2. May i know what happen if my update firmware show [fail]..then my memory card cant be read

  3. Hi dere,

    i was planning to flash my jet but in your above video after you open multiloader you have selected some files which i was not able to understand what are those files?.cause what you've mentioned is to get only the firmware file, so i suppose it should be only one file. please help.

    thanks in advance.

  4. Hi there, Thanks for the guide.. Infact, the whole website is fantastic, really good idea, cheers.

    I'm now on the new firmware. I much prefer it to the old; moving the menu icons about is great, and I think it feels a bit faster too :).
    I had a couple of problems flashing, but thankfully i just tried again and it seemed to work. First one was "amss fail", and the second was, when it rebooted the phone before flashing, it swapped com ports... If anyone encounters those errors when flashing, It seemed to work out fine for me, I just restarted the PC, and turned on the phone in bootloader mode again. Third time it worked!.. Oh and I turned off my antivirus, not sure it that was actually contributing to those errors though, could be just a coincidence ;)
    Also, to Gen8tic Freak, all the files you mention that you have to select in multiloader are packed up in the .zip file to begin with, so just unzip it to a common folder, and then browse to it each time with multiloader. The files will all be in there. They should be relatively easy to find as most of the time it'll filter by file type and you'll only get one choice (the file you need!). The first one (the boot files), you only have to select the folder "BOOTFILES".
    Hope that helps
