Oh, good ... excellent in fact ... this thread is still alive. I like it.
Hey, I still have a Samsung SGH-i780 and I just put the 128DPI WWE WM 6.5.3 "Marvell Dream 2" ROM on it. Beautiful. Especially since the finger mouse works there unlike on the WM 6.5.3 built 28205 I had before.

As great a phone as it is I don't use it any more because I've switched to a dual SiM chinese HTC clone. Now, wasn't there once a section here on xda-developers where people could put up offers to sell used phones to other enthusiasts whom you'll not necessarily reach on eBay?

tired first wm6.1 update via mirage ( as iwanted to upgrade to marvell6.5) stock was 6.1 french ...
eboot failed ( checksum error) ... now phone is bricked , does not start ( just black blankscreen )
please help !!!!!

my system is win7 32bit , maybe mirage didnt supported it

---------- Post added at 09:09 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:02 AM ----------

Here is full pdxib1 update in parts for Mirage updater (Mirage LV, md5hashcheker incl.).

Read this before flashing:

Use appropriate files for sections in Mirage otherwise you can kill bootloader or kill phone part by flashing wrong sections!!!
Also check downloaded files if download is not corrupted by MD5Hash with MD5filechecker.

PXIB1eboot.nb0 (MD5hash 8B8208EC5A91AA41A9D559DD73A5296B) - is set to EBOOT section
PDXIB1ROM.bin (MD5Hash 156EBBE10D25BF07FD3D44A09EABFBFB) -is set to PDA section
PDXIB1phone.bin (MD5hash CC5CB50A873D37C7F4EEB3D78D5D7B6F) -is set to Phone section.
Note: for flashing of Phone part you need to install SAMSUNG MODEM DRIVER, thats included. You have to install modem drivers once-dont install if have it installed already.
Insure thats "update phone bootloader" is ticked "ON".
Start flashing. Hardreset is not necessary.
* you can also flash those files separately. Need to perform Hardreset after. If you flash bootloader only - you have to pull out battery before switching on.
* if you flash any ROM file, like offical or custom only - always keep "update phone bootloader part" ON.

hello ,
i tried to update with abouve said instructions ,
but mirage errorede as checksum failed and now device is bricked , its just blank screen , cant hard reset , can only goto emg mode ...
please help

    Thank you guys for support and help! Download links below.

    This build contains Hack program. Inappropriate usage of it can damage your device!!!. Backup device before using it and try it on your responsibilty.

    Before you test my ROM you will HAVE TO FLASH FULL OFFICIAL PDXIB1 update to avoid bricking your device after your previous installed ROM!
    Also if you expect any strange errors, hangs or hardresets apply this update cos some of i780 device hav "Easter egg" inside and are able to get bricked shortly after those symtoms.

    1. OFFICIAL UPDATOR PDXIB1 exe Patched for "Low battery" and "Incorrect version" warnings.


    2.OFFICIAL PDXIB1 UPDATE in parts for MIRAGE uploader HERE. Mirage uploader for new roms.

    UP: NOTICE for Repack roms!!!: Delete cfgfingermouse link from windows/startup. Its remained from prevoius version, now causes 4-way pad not working.

    Fixed Resco Exporer vs 6.5.3 issue, button "x" long press closes programs, added Comm bar and Titamium bar to Chome, Smaller Sams.task manger, no certificates needed for and programs to install. GPS, processor and flash card are hardware a bit boosted but have no use of common tweaks.

    i780 PXA311-*806MHZ. WM 6.5.3 release 21/11/11 128 DPI WWE/***CHS . incl. prev. release2 and prev. release1

    -Improved stability;
    -Improved filesystem;
    -Improved CPU speed 624MHZ is no more!!!:
    3 CPU profiles ( auto:speedstep1/speedstep2/speedstep3).
    --POWER SAFE (Extra power save. Lowered voltages) - 155/312/520MHZ;
    --**NORMAL-DEFAULT- (Normal usage. Default voltage. Smooth and responsible)- 208/416/728MHZ;
    --OVERDOZE (Gaming, Increased voltage,power usage extreme. wasnt tested for long) - 260/520/806 MHZ. Added 22/11: Overdoze mode is lasting more than day on 1 battery cycle with WIFI, mailing, surfing, calling.

    I havn't disabled speedstep1/speedstep2, cos without them battery usage became very high.

    * Native overclocking is based on patched original processor speedstep driver of i780 by code from MS sources for PXA320 devices
    ** Default profile on i780 was 208/416/624mhz.

    Mirage bin
    Full exe updator

    Enjoy and dont forget that extreme overclocking can damage hardware.
    But this is not HTC or any new Samsung Galaxy so you dont have to worry much about with good quality device.
    Anyway take care fo it!;)
