Folow the guide on that page or:

Code:
Want that fancy WiFi Hotspot internet sharing Tethering feature on you Windows Phone 7 device? If you are a Samsung Omnia 7 owner today is your lucky day. T-Mobile Germany pushed out a new firmware last night version I8700XXKI4 with the tethering / Internet Sharing feature enabled (thanks for the tip guys!). I’m a nice guy so I grabbed the firmware file and uploaded it so you can manually install it on your handset. Follow the instructions below (same a before and I’m not responsible if it doesn’t work for you):

- Download the firmware here (remember that’s not the OS but only the firmware bits) then download the WPupdate tools from here.
- Unzip the Tools in a folder then unzip the firmware in the same folder as the tools.
- Plug in your device, wait until the Zune client starts and then close it.
- Run the the Updater and press S or B (depending on the size of your balls..)
- your phone will then reboot in download mode and update (don’t unplug it or do stupid things with your PC during the whole process..)

Please note that this won’t work if you are running the latest I8700XXKI3 firmware from SFR (there’s a conflict with the 5.9.1.4 bootloader and maybe others too) so you will have to painfully revert back to an older firmware like the T-Mobile RC1 here (I8700XXKH2).


You should then have the following:

OS Version: 7.10.7720.68
Firmware revision number: 2424.11.9.4
Hardware revision number: 3.15.0.4
Radio software version: 2424.11.9.1
Radio hardware version: 0.0.0.800
Bootloader version: 5.9.3.0
Chip SOC version: 0.36.2.0



Enjoy tethering your handset!

Direct Tools download link: http://bit.ly/sOTNzl

P.s: That is not my guide! I had the French SFR bootloader problem, i reverted as he said and it worked seamlesly. You loose all data though!

here's error from logs dir "UpdateErrors"

ERROR: E_GENERAL_FILE_COLLISION : File Name: CSC_Config.xml :
Following Package on the Device already contains this file:

here is the post where you downgrade your mango rom.

http://bit.ly/pK0v0N

Beware!!! If you follow the instructions in that post you will void your warranty, your new rom will be a T-mobile german rom (you will have to manualy change the language in english), t-mobile also will be all over your phone, lot's of crappy apps that you will have to uninstall manualy! Your search provider in internet explorer will be a combination of tmobile and german google, you can change that in the settings menu.

Direct Link for the rom Download http://bit.ly/tvsHop

In the archive you will find a bunch of files.
* WP7 Downloader Ver 7.41 for Publish (Add OASIS Latin).exe
* Samsung_Mobile_USB_Driver(V5.2)_V1.2.1050.0.exe
* PDA_I8700XXKH2_sec.nb0
* I8700XXKG2_02_RC1.bin
* I8700DTMKH2_ENG.PKS
* EBOOT_I8700XXKH2_CO04_REV02_sec.eb0
* CSC_I8700DTMKH2.csc

First unarchive in a folder.
Then install the samsung mobile driver (if you don't already have it)
Open the app WP7 Downloader Ver 7.41
load everything like in the attached photo
put your phone in download mode (with phone turned off press volUp+cameraButton and then power up while keeping those buttons pressed)
connect the phone and press start. Don't do any funny stuff on your pc. I prefer to do that on a laptop with full battery charge and plugged in! :p

After this install your phone should look like this :

Software: windows phone 7.5
os version: 7.10.7720.68
firmware revision number: 2424.11.8.2
hardware rev number: 3.15.0.4
radio soft. vers.: 2424.11.7.2
radio hardw. vers.: 0.0.0.800
Bootloader: 5.8.0.8
Chip SOC version 0.36.2.0

Now you can update to the new T-mobile rom that has thethering enabled!

thanks for the info but I think i will just wait for an official unbranded update maybe...

My omnia was a branded T-mobile DE before :eek: and i unbrande just because i don't like splash screens of something I'm not using

It's like having a bmw with a ducati engine :D
