Custom ROMs project for Samsungs WP7 first generation


attachment.php


Supported phones:
*Samsung Focus Rev 1.3 (2K)
*Samsung Focus Rev 1.4 (4K)
*Samsung Omnia 7 (2K)

Please take attention, Samsung Omnia W and Samsung Focus S are the second generation and this release doesn't support them!


Do not apply Samsung FOTA updates - they may fix existing holes and prevent flashing MAGLDR / custom ROMs!


Please read these instructions carefully before installing!


Overview
Flashing custom ROMs done by installing MAGLDR to device.
MAGLDR is custom bootloader, created by DFT team. Closed source.
MAGLDR version for Samsungs is stripped down from most of LEO MAGLDR features to decrease it's size.
This release contains MAGLDR 2.00.

After flashing MAGLDR, you can use DWPI (DFT Windows Phone Installer) to install custom ROM.

Current version still have some issues with USB, I am working under them :)


Requirements
You need supported official Samsung ROM installed on your device to proceed with the installation.
If right MAGLDR version is not present, installation may fail
Please make sure battery is charged to 100%!


Description
Ability to install MAGLDR for flashing custom ROMs
Samsung OTA may replace MAGLDR by stock bootloader. Be warned!
Flashing stock ROM via Samsung utility will replace MAGLDR by stock bootloader.


Warranty Issues

DMLI - DFT MAGLDR Installer
DWPI - DFT Windows Phone Installer


attachment.php


DMLI is used to install MAGLDR to Samsung phone.
Run DFT_MLI_SAM1.exe as administrator and follow instructions inside wizard.
MAGLDR mode can be enabled by pressing "BACK" button inside clear storage menu.


DWPI is used to flash custom ROMs to Samsung phones.
Phone must be connected in MAGLDR mode.
After flashing you MUST do clear storage option, otherwise ROM may not boot.



Information for developers:

Also DWPI allows to dump current installed ROM, you can do it by running:
Code:
DFT_WPI_SAM1.exe -DUMP
In this mode, DWPI will dump partitions to the files near EXE. (OS*.D000FF and CSC.D000FF)
Note that current WP7 tools (like OSB7) may have problems with dumping ROMs after update.

Be warned: dumped rom may contain your Windows Live key!
It can be not safe to share such dump, because somebody can use your key.
Key is located inside DPP partition.

Awesome work as usual guys, Glad we're gonna have more wp7 users able to get into Native apps. With the userbase of Samsung WP7 phones, we should see a nice uptake in dev work.

Congrats, Cotulla, outstanding job! Thanks to you and DFT, you guys rocks!

P.S. Also it's a nice proof of the "community sponsored project" concept. Thanks to everybody who donated money for Cotulla's test handset!

    Samsung WP7 first generation phones in MAGLDR mode:
    8
    reserved4444

    So how do we edit our own ROM? I have a dump of my vanilla 8107 ROM and I can't get htcRIE to work with it at all with the CSC file... Anyone know what I am doing wrong or what tools I should use?
    CSC file contains only update packages which are installed at the first boot.
    Seems Samsung customize phones for operators via such way.
    OS inside OS.D000FF
    But I have a problem with DMLI software. After I click my phone type (OMNIA 7) the phone reboot in few moments. After that the software remains in "Installation progress" screen. Is it normally since the phone remains in home screen? How much time do I wait? Thanks
    This is NOT normal. It must stay in DLMODE during MAGLDR installation.
    Maybe you should try to flash other stock ROM.
    newbie here to flashing roms (will it remove all my data?)
    Yes, flashing custom ROM erase and remove all your data! Be warned.
    Many thankx for your work and your Custom Rom !!!
    But, with 8107, i lose my VVM ! have you a way to add my Mobil Operator files in your Rom to enable the VVM ?
    1)This thread only about method how to install custom roms.
    DFT roms are discussed in the other secion.
    2)I am not author of those roms, they was done by mwang. You should ask him.
