Hi...

Look this post:

"Thanks

I try flash C1605 firmware in my C1604 phone.
I test in both sim,dtac(850MHz gsm,wcdma) and 3GX(2100MHz wcdma)

In 2100MHz Everything fine.

In 850MHz Can use only calls & messaging(gsm)
but data traffic(gprs,edge,3g) is not work. "

This was made on Dual Sim Phone.

I´m afraid to flash C1605 firmware on my C1604 phone...

Yes, I know.
Just used this example because I imagine that C1504 and C1604 have the same behavior.
So, you think I will not have problems using C1605 firmware on my C1604?
I'm afraid the same thing happen to me, and i lost the 2G, 3G, EDGE...

Another doubt:
It´s necessary a driver to use Flashtool on my phone?
I can made a backup using Flashtool?

Thanks.

steps > 3

the 3 rd step u mentioned after unlocking c1504 does nt work... as in my case,after unlocking bootloader c1504 goes into bootloop and it is factory reset.. emma has no services for c1504 .. flash tool by bin4ry tells to switch on the phone and then enable usb debugging and try to flash.. as the phone is in bootloop there is no way I can switch it on.. so I think c1504 users should first flash c1505 ftf on c1504 using flash tool by bin4ry before unlocking bootloader??
