How to flash V360

How to flash Motorola V360/L7 mobile phone

(presume you have already installed the necessary P2k drivers and your V360 can be detected by PST. If not, please read this post about driver installation.)

WARNING: Flashing your phone will erase all your data, so please always backup your data before flashing.
- Just found that you can use P2KTools to backup phonebook/datebook/sms under AT mode. Simply select "switch to AT Mode", then you will see the icons to backup these stuff.
- To backup phonebook/datebook, you can also use iSync on Mac or MPT on PC.
- To backup audio/picture/video, use Moto4lin on Mac or P2KTools on PC to download the files to your computer. Please also backup the /a/websession file.
- To backup the existing firmware on your phone, read [Backup with flashbackup]. For PC only.

1. get the software you need: RSDlite 2.4 or above.
2. download and unzip the MonsterPack (MP) file. You have a .shx file after unzip.

CHECK before flashing:
To make sure you don't flash a wrong MP, You must check the followings before flashing your phone: (ask the MP maker if you are not sure.)
1. make sure the MP won't lock your phone to a particular carrier, if your phone is unlocked.
2. read the description of the MonsterPack very carefully to make sure it is for your phone. You can check the existing bootloader and firmware version of your phone in the bootloader screen. (Do the step #2 below to enter booloader mode.)

1. fully charge the battery.
2. switch off your phone. press and hold # and * keys, then press the red key to power on. The phone will enter booloader screen.
3. start RSDLite.
4. connect your phone to a reliable USB port of your PC with the USB cable.
5. RSDLite should detect your phone.
6. select the MP file in rsdlite, then click "start" to start flashing.
7. wait until rsdlite finish the job. it should show PASS.
8. your phone is now updated to the new MP.

If I flash my phone I´ll lose my GPRS and MMS configuration?

1:47 PM, July 24, 2006 Yuet said...

ftp, yes, you will lose those settings, so better backup the websession file before flashing. Anyway, you can check the website of your network provider to find out how to setup the config again. It is not difficult.

I flased my v360, but the new firmware is bad too. I wanted to flash it again, but the RSD Lite 2.7 and none of p2k program could not recognize my mobile. It can be because of new software. How could I flash again? thx

10:40 AM, July 26, 2006 Yuet said...

did u follow my procedure to go into the bootloader screen? Can your phone recognized in bootloader mode?

5:14 PM, July 29, 2006 Spekta said...

RSDLite isn't detecting my phone, here's what comes up in flash mode:

Boot Loader
SW Version:

OK to Program
Transfer Mode

Any help is greatly appreciated.

12:12 AM, July 30, 2006 Yuet said...

can other p2k software recognize your phone? You can try:
1. reinstall the p2k driver
2. use another USB port
3. try another PC.

6:48 AM, August 07, 2006 olivier said...

i have a just new v360 with this
Boot Loader
SW Version:

and i try to flash with the ABR , and after, it isn't reboot

the screen boot write always AER

what can i do ?

10:58 AM, August 07, 2006 Yuet said...

Olivier, what's the file you were trying to flash? Did you see any error messages in RSDLite? Most likely the flashing was not completed. I would suggest you try to use another USB port (those ports at the back of the pc) or even another PC to flash again.

2:45 PM, August 07, 2006 olivier said...

i tried to flash the file

there wasn't error until rsdlite ask for a reboot, my phone turn off ant don't restart!

5:12 AM, August 12, 2006 brettstar said...

Hi Yuet! I tried to flash Pdidee's OSXTiger DRM today, but was unsuccessful. In RSDLite 2.5 I encountered the following fail error:

Failed flashing process. Error sending RAM download for bootloader. Device API error: 0xE 0020083 Address: 0x3 FE8000 Command: ADDR (0xE 0222083)

My assumption is that this DMR/*.shx file is specifically for the RAZR V3. If so, is there any way to get this on my V360?

Cheers, brettstar

8:30 AM, August 12, 2006 Yuet said...

you are right, it is for V3 only. basically you need a v360 drm pack as a base, then extract all graphics from the V3 drm and put into the v360 drm.

If you are not sure, it worth waiting for v1.6. :)

10:07 PM, August 12, 2006 olivier said...

do you think i can do something or my phone ?

11:11 PM, August 12, 2006 Yuet said...

Olivier, as I said, you should try to use another USB port (those ports at the back of the pc) or even another PC to flash again.

Have you tried?

8:11 AM, August 13, 2006 olivier said...

i tried on a another usb port and i have the same, i ll try tomorrow on a other computer.

10:51 AM, August 13, 2006 Yuet said...

olivier, is your phone working now even though the flashing failed?

7:16 PM, August 14, 2006 olivier said...

always the same with other usb port or other pc, i think i need a firmware AER , but where ??

my phone was the v360 green but i dont think is different than the other v360

olivier, the url is noted, and I will work on it. Will post here once it is done. Your comment removed so other people won't get your backup file.

5:23 PM, August 16, 2006 olivier said...

thank you very much yuet for your staff

12:43 PM, August 17, 2006 Gojomo said...

Are there any good options other than 'RSD lite' for flashing firmware? The only links to it I can find seem sketchy... there doesn't seem to be any official source or info about this program.

7:59 PM, August 17, 2006 Yuet said...

olivier, I haven't got time to compile the SHX file for you yet. Now I am facing a Mac, in which I don't have the software to do it. I will try my best to do it tomorrow. Sorry for keep you waiting.

Gojomo, in my opinion, RSDlite is the best software for flashing V360/L7. It is hard to find because it is copyrighted. Let me know how to contact you so I can help you to get it. :) or you can try the flashing tool in PST. I saw many people had success with it.

thank you for your help yuet , with your help, my phone work fine now , a lot of kiss ^^ yet it s a firmware of orange french :-/

9:54 PM, August 22, 2006 olivier said...

your mod work with my firm AER

just some applications not work like itunes :(

12:26 AM, August 23, 2006 Yuet said...

olivier, glad to know it works for you. I guess this AER is custom made for Orange. and there is more restriction on granting permission for java midlets. that's why those apps required special permission won't work.

I still have no idea why you can't flash to the ABR firmware.

2:11 PM, August 23, 2006 Anonymous said...

This is as far as I can go using, MMF, RSDLite 2.5 and now F&B3(excellent program, this is the first time I've seen what's happening)

Sending loader...
Executing JUMP...
Erasing memory... (Progress of this process is not shown)
etc, using different MF's and SHX's all say the same

As the battery is connected I get Boot Loader 08.A0
SW ver R4513_G_08.B7.30R_B. Cannot turn on/off and presume I cannot charge either.

Any ideas?

3:32 PM, August 23, 2006 Yuet said...

Hi, you shouldn't use Flashbackup to flash a 08.A0 phone. It will screw it up.

Please try to use RSDLite to flash again. try another USB port or another PC. you must find a way to charge your battery if it is low.

6:35 PM, August 23, 2006 Anonymous said...

well done. I changed the USB and it loaded up with no problem.
Thanks, you're a genius.

8:41 PM, September 13, 2006 Ark said...

I searched my ass off for this RSDlite 2.4, but I can't find it ANYWHERE. I got all the other software, but the above. Could you please post a link?

10:23 PM, September 13, 2006 Yuet said...

ark, rsdlite is not freeware. I can't put the link in the public. do u get what I mean?

10:00 AM, September 14, 2006 jhoang said...

Hi yuet I have a question i lost the Java program on my L7 which has the digital audio player. If I do a reflash with your instructions will I have java and the digital audio player? or will i have to do the instructions for the bootloader? thanks

11:57 AM, September 14, 2006 Yuet said...

jhoang, yes you will have that player if you flash again. If you are flashing my YuetMod v1.7d MP, please follow the steps on that post.

10:57 AM, September 15, 2006 jhoang said...

oh ok thanks

8:07 PM, September 20, 2006 Ark said...

Okay, then could you post a link to where I can BUY it?

10:25 PM, September 20, 2006 Yuet said...

ark, you didn't get what I mean. it is a moto software and I don't think it is for sale. :) if you have an account at howard forum, you may want to PM me. my ID there is Yuet.

7:58 AM, September 26, 2006 Anonymous said...

hi there...
I have a problem.
yuet do you ever encountered a 09.02 bootloader version for v360?
i have one here that are using the R4513_G_08.b7.AER SW version and with a bootloader 09.02!the prob is that the owner of the phone flash it with your MP , after that the phone dont reboot , just blink the keypad and display always the same version of SW (AER) dispite i already try to flash with ABR version!

I hope u can help , i already going nuts with this phone! :P thx

10:02 AM, September 26, 2006 Yuet said...

This AER firmware somehow can prevent you from flashing it to other version. No solution is found yet. You have to flash back to AER to get the phone working.

Seems that moto comes up with new bootloader everyday, just to make modders' life harder.

11:49 PM, September 26, 2006 Eiodark said...

The R4513_G_08.b7.AER flashing problem seems to be with the flex(CG2) and not with the CG1!
This new bootlaoder (09.02) i already saw him many times,is starting to be widely used in Vodafone branded v360(V360V),Well at least in portugal!

7:23 AM, September 29, 2006 Anonymous said...

Crud, I just used FlashBackUp 3.0 to upload a full backup and then try a test restore to my V635 24R. Now my phone is dead. Won't start at all, even with battery out and AC plugged in.

Any ideas?

10:52 PM, September 29, 2006 Yuet said...

200Volts, do these:
1. fully charge the battery, then switch off your phone.
2. press & hold # and * keys, then power on.
3. connect your phone to computer
if you can get to bootloader mode and get regconised, flash to a working V635 MP to revive your phone.

2:54 AM, October 03, 2006 LWS said...

Need help on flashing, here are my phone description :

boot loader : 08.D0
SW version : R4513_G_08.B7.ABR

This is the first time I tried to flash my phone using your MP V1.7 following the guide line in below URL:

I received below error message when try to flash under boot loader mode:

USB Port:0 Error:FLASH failed! ***Error*** Unable to connect to the Subscriber Unit. Unable to get string descriptors.

I try using different USB port but still cannot ? Appreciate the advise.

5:32 PM, October 03, 2006 Yuet said...

lws, have you tried to follow my procedure? Can the RSDLite recognise your phone? Make sure you have installed p2k driver v2.9.

12:59 AM, October 05, 2006 lws said...

Hi Yuet, thanks for the advice, after I downloaded the latest drivers and software, I was able to flashed my phone. You had saved me a lot of time and money, thanks a again !

6:59 PM, October 05, 2006 Anonymous said...

Hello. i had reading the comments and do the things like put new p2k drivers etc...i begining had a problem when i'm trying to install a decent mp3 player on my v360v (vodafone from portugal...)...then the sms don't work and i decided to flash to try to resolve my problems...(i forgot to do a backup before i start modding...:S)now the phone after flash ask to reboot manually but don't do anything...anyone can help me please? Software Version: R4513_G_08.B7.AER Flex Version: SE6577AXXK3166 BootLoader 09.02..thanks


11:27 PM, October 05, 2006 Yuet said...

João, is your phone locked to your network?

unluckily you have this troublesome AER version. It is found that it locked the phone to this version. That means you can't flash to versions other than AER. You have to flash back to AER to get your phone working. if you phone is already locked, you can try to flash to a backup from another user. download here. If your phone is not locked, don't flash it.

4:08 AM, October 09, 2006 danny said...

Hi Yuet, I get the following error in RSD Lite 2.5 when I try to flash the MonstarPack for v360.
Failed flashing process. Error sending RAM download for bootloader. Device API error: 0xE 0020083 Address: 0x3 FE8000 Command: ADDR (0xE 0222083)

I tried both versions 1.8 and 3.0. My boot loader is 08.A0. Please help me out, I don't even have the original firmware anymore, my phone is on the Boot Loader screen and it wont move from there.

9:44 AM, October 09, 2006 Yuet said...

danny, try to flash using another usb port or even another PC. Make sure the battery is fully charged before flashing.

11:10 PM, October 10, 2006 João Filipe said...

Hi there.. im from brazil and dont speak english well but i have some questions, thanks a lot.

I have some different type of sw version: R413_G_08.B7.86R_B
Somebody have this version or see this before?
can i flash my fone?
I think put the "YouetModv18" MP, like the features.

I need use the RSDlite 2.4 for this work? i cant find the link for download.

1:24 PM, October 11, 2006 Yuet said...

João Filipe, you should be able to flash your phone to v1.8. please check your bootloader version to confirm. Do step 2 to see the bootloader version. It should be 08.D0 or 08.A0. RSDlite is not freeware, so we can't provide download openly. The best way to get it is to send a private message to users in those modding forums.

3:20 AM, October 21, 2006 Ghost_Hunter said...

hi there yuet, please can you get me a fullbackup from a moto V360v Vodafone Portugal with bootloader 09.02 ? I try to flash it but now I know that I just can flash my phone to AER version cuz of 09.02 boot loader version, please does anyone have a full backup of this phone??? HELPPPPP :)

12:28 PM, October 21, 2006 Yuet said...

the Anonymous, what do you see in the bootloader screen? can your phone recognised by rsdlite? try to charge your battery, then use rsdlite to flash to a MP of your choice.

ven, do you remember what you did to your phone, to make it in such state? what do you see in the bootloader screen now? is it recognised as "S Blank neptune LTE2" in rsdlite? It seems that you screwed up the flash rom very bad. If you can find those RFDI image files for your phone, try flash to them. If still failed, you might want to try the testpoint & repair pds procedure, then flash it to 56R firmware.

xneo, don't worry. First check your bootloader version please. If it is 08.A0 or 08.D0, it is fine to flash to my YuetMod v1.8.

Mizael, what happened during the flashing? now you should connect your phone and flash again. make sure the battery is fully charged.

7:40 AM, November 10, 2006 Diego said...

Hellou Yuet!

I'm looking foward to do my first flash on my V360.
I downloaded the RSD soft, got the phone connected, PC asked me the drivers for "Motorola Flash Interface", i installed the drivers from my p2k folder (i think i did somthing wrong here, it's PST 6.7), then RSD finds my phone, i click on start, and pum, FAIL. Instantly.
I tried a couple of other USB ports, and still got the same thing.

I wonder if you could give me a hand. ^^

Thanks in advance!


9:55 AM, November 10, 2006 Diego said...

Me again.
I got the RSD to work, and flashed it with no problems ^^

But i have 2 questions.

First: The V360 has the camera button (right on top of the power up). How do i make it to work as the camera button as well? It's working as voice thingy.
And the other thing, is how can i set up the Browser button (the oposite of the camera button) as iTunes? Can this be done?

Thanks in advance!

3:47 PM, November 10, 2006 Yuet said...

diego, read this post to find out how to change the camera key. you only need to change the value of offset 1F of 005B seem.
In your home key setup, set smartkey to launch shortcuts, then put iTunes as shortcut #1. After that, pressing the browser key twice will open iTunes.

10:25 PM, November 14, 2006 Yuet said...

if you have problem pressing *, # and red key altogether, you can skip this step. just turn on your phone and connect, rsdlite should be able to switch your phone to bootloader mode before flashing started.

10:44 AM, November 16, 2006 Yuet said...

shahleh, do u mean your phone has those problems before flashing. and after flashing, the problems are still there. right? then most likely it is problem with the hardware.

2:48 PM, November 16, 2006 Anonymous said...

Is it possible to backup all my current software in phone?? How can I do it?THX for answer!!!

1:59 AM, December 08, 2006 Toby said...

And one thing yet..What about my Czech language in phone? Can I put it again to phone with your MP? How can I back up it separately? the´s funny, you have 2 AM and I have 7 PM now(7th:-)..I try to look here tomorrow, I am sure you are already sleep..

11:53 AM, December 08, 2006 Yuet said...

toby, you should be able to flash to YuetMod v1.8, but I still need to know your bootloader version to confirm.

there's a link to backup with flashbackup in the post. did you read it?

My MP won't overwrite your Language, so your current language won't be changed. you can also backup LP seperately with flashbackup.

8:05 PM, December 08, 2006 Toby said...

So I already have FlashBackup 3.0.058...I backup to SHX and also SMG , but there isn´t CG2 :-(..Do you know to reg this version unofficialy?:-) I found my BL is 08.D0!And I have your MP named(
What should I do now??I know that the informations is somewhere on this blog but my english isn´t so good..i can´t find quickly-more informations here:-)

8:24 PM, December 08, 2006 Toby said...

Something else..I have RSD it good? I would need understand the whole structure of software in my mobile...I am not good at this!

8:25 PM, December 08, 2006 toby said...

Do you know about some grafic figuration???

12:02 AM, December 09, 2006 Yuet said...

toby, The trick to enable CG2 backup is to uncomment the CG2 definition (by removing the semicolon) in the corresponding .prof file under the subfolder "profiles" of flashbackup 3.

Rsdlite 2.8 is good, follow the steps in this post to flash your phone.

I don't understand what is "grafic figuration".

9:29 AM, December 09, 2006 Toby said...

So I have your MP already!!!:-) Great work,really great! It is only shame, the phone isn´t more quickly sometimes, but it is hardware thing..we don´t influence it :-/

Lots of success to you at next projects!!! Thanx!! Toby from CZech Republic

5:14 AM, December 27, 2006 darky said...

2:01 PM, December 27, 2006 Yuet said...

darky, congras! did you try to install my v1.8 MP?

8:12 PM, December 28, 2006 darky said...

no I don't flash my phone with YuetMod 1.8, I created my own MP and use it, with MediaViewer, I like MV more than iTunes :)... maybe I backup my phone and then I flash with YuetMP 1.8 to see how it is :)
ps: now I have to learn how I remap keys with seem edit, to put shortcuts on smart key, etc... this is the only thing I don't know to do :(

10:25 PM, December 28, 2006 Yuet said...

darky, here is the guide for remaping keys. If you can, please help to test YuetMod with your phone. and if you can do me a favour, please backup the 09.02 bootloader and send to me. thanks!

1:45 PM, December 30, 2006 Matt said...

Yuet, I just became a victim of the AER version. I can live with it for now, however the flex version on the mp I used was SE6154AXXL4184.
This shows as vodafone and is anoying me. Is it possible that I can get a copy of an unbranded flex. Thank you. I am awaiting for your AER version. again thank you. BTW. this is for V360 .

2:07 PM, December 30, 2006 Yuet said...

matt, my AER MP is here.

4:15 AM, December 31, 2006 Matt said...

Yuet, thanks. I was also reading the procedure to get this pesky AER firmware. Does the testpoint process main objective is to get the phone in S Blank mode?

The reason I am asking is that I was able to unlock this phone without testpoint using GOT (still in testing, so I got free 30 days). One of the functions is to get the phone in S Blank mode. I was wondering if the phone is in this mode, I can full repair the PDS and flashing to a different MP. You think this might work?

again thanks for your help.


11:00 AM, December 31, 2006 Yuet said...

matt, yes, GOT_MOTO can repair pds without testpoint. Tested working on V360 and L7.

11:54 AM, December 31, 2006 Matt said...

thanks for you promt reply. does the phone need to be in blank mode to do this? After my encounter with this pesky AER MP, I am taking all the precautions before attempting to remove it.

3:02 PM, December 31, 2006 Yuet said...

no. I just wrote a post about GOT_MOTO.

This message is only to congratulate you on your excellent work. Everything worked and right now I am exploring the new functions of my V360.

luis, thanks!

7:46 PM, January 11, 2007 Bawked said...

Yuet, Do you know where i could find an English lang pack for my v360 and unbranded flex. Also have you found a way to edit the pds and get itunes to recognize the phone?

8:53 PM, January 11, 2007 Yuet said...

almost every LP here contains English. I have not find the way to update the pds yet.

Hi Yuet, do u know the link to download the v360's usb driver???(s flash neptune LTE2) Thanks in advance!!!

you mean motorola driver 2.9, right? you should be able to find it in the link about driver installation in this post.

11:17 AM, January 14, 2007 S7VRuser said...

Tried to flash using:

Boot Loader 0A.20.
SW Version: R4517_G_08.C4.1ER

Flash loads fine; displays "PASS".
When I try to re-boot my phone the number pad only flashes once and never boots. I am able to start the boot loader. Is this an indication that i need to find another MP? Any help you can provide will be appreciated. Talk to ya when we do till then take care!

3:32 PM, January 14, 2007 Yuet said...

s7vruser, you have to find a MP match your bootloader & firmware version. My MPs are for R4513 firmware only.

12:46 PM, January 17, 2007 Anonymous said...

Hi Yuet, after extensive reading of your blog I've decided to give it a try.

I downloaded got_moto but it asks for a user and a password which I don't have perhaps you can point me into the right direction. Otherwise do you know of another way to unlock my phone?

Now for the MP

I am downloading rsdlite 2.6 and flashbackup.

First I should back up my actual software with flashbackup in case something goes wrong. Then I should use rsdlite to flash my phone with one of your MP my phone is a 360 with Bootloader 08.A0 and SW R4513_G_08.B7.85R So everything should be fine right?

Thanks for your help and your patience.

4:10 PM, January 17, 2007 Yuet said...

got_moto is no longer free, so I can't help about that, but you can try testpoint & unlock.

for MP, what you said is fine. don't forget to backup data also, if there's any important data. good luck!

8:33 PM, January 20, 2007 Anonymous said...

hi im new to this flashing thing i downloaded rsdlite 3.2 i just want to ask if is it adviseable to use? my bootloader ver is 08.d0 and my firmware is DCR...pls help.. im afraid to flash after reading all this errors and stuffs..

11:30 PM, January 20, 2007 Yuet said...

RSD Lite 3.2 is good. You can flash your phone to YuetMod v1.8. Don't be afraid as most people come here to report problem, but it's not the full picture. Many other people have flashed successfully and enjoying the modded MPs happily & quietly.

hi im new to this modding thing hehe my firmware is R4513_G_08.b7.DCR_RB ..will any firmware run on my phone as long as its R4513? can i flash it using your ABR firmware?

9:39 PM, January 22, 2007 Yuet said...

yes, you can flash to my ABR MP v1.8. and you can flash to any R4513 firmware as long as it is for your phone model. L7?

Hi Yuet.

I was wondering, the only thing I want to do is adjust my volume for my Razr V3. The only thing I need to do is just launch the P2K Phone File manager and open the gain_table.bin in XV132 without flashing or flexing right?

Can I use this P2K Phone File manager with the new Latte Slim11b as well?

Thank You!

3:15 PM, January 26, 2007 yeoh said...

Halo yuet, i am yeoh here... when i try to flasj my phone with the MP 1.8 i encounter some error

SW Version:
Code Error

And those 2 files of ur shx are the same in terms of name,... i have no idea how to combine on it..really hope u can help me..

6:39 PM, January 26, 2007 Yuet said...

not sure about "Latte Slim11b". what is it? yes, you can just download the gain_table file and hex edit it and upload it back. alternatively, you can use software like p2ktools to adjust the volume. such tools have the feature for you to adjust volume directly.

yeoh, there's only one SHX. the rar program will combine the 2 rar files to produce one shx file when you decompress the first file. remember to put the 2 rar files in one folder. please follow my "how to flash" guide to flash again.

2:16 AM, January 27, 2007 Anonymous said...

Hi Yuet.

Thanks for the fast reply! After reading 95% of your blogs and comments from other people, you helped out all of them. Very impressived and talented! :-) I'm hoping that I can be another successful customers.

I am trying to fix 2 different phones, the Razr V3 and Latte Slim11b (mine) with the volume problems. The Latte Slim11b is a new cell phone which came out last year and is a rival to the L7. Here is the link.

I have a few questions for you before I start using the P2Ktools.

1. Do the Samsung, Lg, Sony Ericcson, and Latte Slim11b have the same gain_table file as the Motorola?

If yes, then I can use the P2Ktools to adjust the volume directly into any brand name phone without harming it, even my Latte Slim11b right?

If no, can you show me where to find the gain_table file for the Latte Slim11b?

2. When we do a flashbackup to save the RazrV3, they will save all the phone numbers from the phone as well right?

Thanks for your kindness helping me! I very appreciated it.

7:35 AM, January 27, 2007 yeoh said...

Sorry to disturb you yuet, like wat u guide me, i decompressed the 1st part of shx to a folder and later on i decompressed the second part to the same folder as just now.. after that they ask me whether to replace or not... than i select yes to replace is it that way??

sorry i am not so good in computer stuff... ahha. so learning now.

and one more thing i try to reflash again and i encounter one more error, i am not sure whether my phone is dead or not.. can u help me out with this??

SW Version:

Can u help me out... ???

11:22 AM, January 27, 2007 Yuet said...

for anonymous,
1. no, p2k system is motorola's proprietary software, so I don't think the concept can be applied in phones of other brands.
2. yes, it backup everything on your phone, but you have to restore everything all together. that is, you can't just only restore the phonebook. If you want to be able to restore only phonebook, you should use software like "MPT" to backup phonebook entries.

for yeoh,
you didn't do it right. follow these steps please:
1. download the 2 parts of rar files
2. put the 2 rar files in one folder
3. double click the first rar file to open it with winrar
4. you should see one shx and one readme file shown in winrar. extract them to the same folder.
5. it is done, you can use this shx to flash again with rsdlite. you don't need to decompress the 2nd rar file at all.

2:20 AM, January 28, 2007 yeoh said...

hey yuet, i already follow ur instruction to extract the shx file i think should be ok... but when i start flashing with rsdlite i encounter some error it says fail to flash so in btw wat is the problem occured there/?? thanks for ur help...

11:22 AM, January 28, 2007 Yuet said...

yeoh, what's the error? please try to use other usb port on your computer. use those at the back of it.

12:39 PM, January 28, 2007 yeoh said...

hey yuet, i write to u my error now ok??? hopefully u can help me.. thanks.. i scared my phone dead already

12:31 AM, January 29, 2007 Yuet said...

yeoh, I am also afraid you have messed it up in previous flashes. the situation looks not so good. try flash to a moto stock MP like 56R using RSDLite. If still fail, try to use p2k easy tool to flash. and finally you can try to repair pds using this guide. good luck.

I downloaded the yuetmodv 18 part 1 and 2, and rsdlite 2.7, and flashbackup 2.62. Do I have the right software to do this? I just want original software on the phone. I also battleing to get flashbackup and rsdlite "see" my phone. It just say not connected. Pls tell me what I have to do, or guide me to where I must look. Thanks

thanks, that solved the problem but there is one more problem. Now my computer is not detecting my phone as l7 but as v360 secondly it is not showing any removable drive in "My Computer". i formated SD card but it didn't solved the problem . My phone is not creating any folder in it(like /mobile/audio or /video etc.). can u tell what is problem?? (and solution too) ;)

Thanks Once Again

9:22 PM, February 10, 2007 jacqvt said...

Thanks yuet, I did it, and all work fine. I am a bit disapointed cause it doesn't look like the original software. And it looks like vodafone is still on my phone. It looks much better I must say, but I would prefer the original software which is on the non branded v360. Flashbackup 2.62, which I downloaded from motomodders just keep on freezing when I tried to backup the vodafone software. Any other place I might get this? Do you know where I can find the original v360 software? Thansk again.

12:37 AM, February 11, 2007 Yuet said...

about changing model to L7, read the last paragraph of this post.

jacqvt, you can get some stock firmware from be aware of sticky firmwares, and firmwares with sim lock.

1:57 AM, February 11, 2007 jacqvt said...

Thanks for all the info Yuet. Looks like there's a lot of stuff there. Will try it.

I used RSD Lite 3.2.

I can still get to the phone boot screen with *+#+Red Button, but that's as far as I can go.

Thanks for your help.

I am not sure why it was like that. make sure you download the correct file. and you can try older version of rsd lite, such as 2.7. good luck.

Yuet: Do I need to flash with the whole MP?

I'm seriously considering your MP 1.8. My question is if I need to flash the complete MP with RSD Lite or can I choose and pick with FB3 what I need such as just CG1 & CG3? I like what else I have and just want to change the firmware.

11:47 AM, February 19, 2007 Yuet said...

You don't need to flash the whole MP.

Yuet, sorry if I'm at the wrong place. I defenitely know I'm at the right guy thou. I flashed my v360v with the software yuetmod v1.8 with rsdlite 2.7. Everything worked fine, but now I wanna do some seem editing, but cant get p2ktools, or p2kseem to see my phone. Pls help me, or guide me to where I can get help. I still have the drivers I installed to do the flashing. What can I do else? Thanks

E0R is a so-called sticky firmware. means that you can only flash to E0R firmware.

is there another way to flash my fon?

11:36 PM, February 21, 2007 Yuet said...

you have to get rid of it first, but it is not easy. read this post, and this one.

12:11 PM, February 22, 2007 funkngruvn888 said...

thanks a lot yuet! only problem now is finding got_moto software.. any links?

7:50 AM, February 23, 2007 mjy6087 said...

I need help... I want to know why it says please reboot your phone manually after it says rebooting.

11:44 AM, February 23, 2007 Yuet said...

funkngruvn888, sorry, I have no link. and you need the ID to use the software. I don't see any cracked yet.

mjy6087, that means the software cannot reboot your phone, so you have to reboot it manually.

Dear Yuet, I got a "no-brand" V360 modded with your MP v1.8 (That's C-O-O-L!) Now I bought myself another 1, but I cannot do anything (critical error #10), maybe (?) cause it's a brand one (TIM logo). What should I do??? Thanx, alot! Giorgio

11:06 PM, February 26, 2007 Yuet said...

Giorgio, please tell me the bootloader and firmware version.

Giorgio, did you download the correct file for 08.A2? if yes, send me the flasherrorlog in RSDlite folder.

Hi Yuet - or anyone - please to help me ... I have a v360 - and would love to backup the firmware etc etc - before I try to flash a newer version into it... one of Yuet's good MP's... but everytime I try to READ the data - even if I use p2k easy tools 3.9 - I keep getting critical errors - displayed on the display of ht ephone... I have R4513 ---- 2ER_A version - and bootloader is 08.A2 ... I even tried flash&backup - simply - to try to READ some firmware from the fone... but keep getting errors ... on the display of the fone ... Critical error 10 comes from flash&backup - and critical error 80, and then 40 - comes from p2k easy tools 3.9 ... I wonder if the motorola company has had a lot of complaints from programmers of flash&backup - and p2k easy tools 3.9 - that their software is being ripped off, and so Motorola put routines into softwares on fone - that detect the version of the package being used - and then just "crash" the system.... when the fone is connected... so that the newer fones - will not negotiate these packages for backing up purposes ... (I suppose that if the fone was flashed - maybe some other package - then the fone would program - okay - and then maybe this routine would be "disappeared" from the firmwares in the fones... I also wonder that the new bootloaders - like 08.A2 - have also been "fixed" - so that these routines are in the fones, and will never be taken out - as I believe that the bootloaders are not changed... in most cases ... but when the fone is connected to programs like flash&backup and p2k easy tools 3.9 - the routines then "realise" that this connection is present - and the fone "acts up" like it does not want to work... I believe that this is done - so that the programmers of these packages - can still get "sales" ... it is a long shot - but I have been thinking about it for sme time now... and it is just possible that this is what is happening... This means that the clever ones of you guys out there, will have to write "free" software - for the hackers - and modders - to have to do all these things... with...!! I hope that most of you reading this tet - understand what I am about here...!!! ... I was a system software engineer in my young days - and I used to do these sorts of things - to protect "my" systems ...from being ripped off.. andso I believe that this is quite a possible situation to be happening now... You see my v360 is a "comparitively new" fone - with 08.A2 - and so on .... and I have just read that another guy - is having a similar problem... of sorts...
Okay - Yuet - now to sort out my problem ... what can we use - to do a proper backup of the fone - instead of using things like p2k commander 4.93 etc etc, and really not doing anything useful - but just copying rubbish off the fones...
It will be interesting to see what some of you "clever guys" find out... You see I have tried all sorts of combinations, of cables - PC's - drivers - and software - and anything to do with these two packages - flash&backup, and p2k easy tools 3.9 - does not work properly - but gives "critical errors" ... hmmmm... maybe I am completely wrong - but I believe that what I am thinking about is true... It is just the same as that "flash&backup"... company - random - has stopped the total use of that well known number handed out in all the forums - so that when you enter that code...the newer versions of "flash&backup" - realise that this is an "outlaw" number, and the program dies - refusing to work... If you have an older version - maybe ...050 - it will work - hmmm - because that version number was released before the registration was handed out...
Anyway - enough now - you clever guys - please help me get a proggy - that will backup my fone - like "flash&backup" does... without any errors... hmmm
hope someone writes...

Done. Thanx Yuet! I was wrong, cause I was fashing 4 a different BOOTLOADER (08.A0)... This is one of the few useful sites on the net! Great, guy! >Giorgio<

11:55 PM, February 28, 2007 Yuet said...

Giorgio, congras! BTW, did you try to use flashbackup to backup your phone? success? How? I am helping Spencer to ask this question.

5:27 AM, March 02, 2007 babyhuye said...

yuet i'm a liitle lost how do i back up my phone i have a v360 with Software Version: R4513_G_08.B7.86R
Flex Version: GSTV360TMB01NA104
Bootloader Version: v0x0008A0
how would i backup everything & restore it if i ever need to. i got a new phone after the Unlock/Repair PDS without Testpoint post. i got reboot phone manually & i fellowed ur directions, but my old phone wouldn't turn on,or connect to p2k easy tools. so i'm thinking it's bricked.

1:50 PM, March 02, 2007 Yuet said...

11:16 AM, March 03, 2007 yeoh said...

hey yuet, yeoh here. i just get back my phone from moto service center, i wish to flash it to yuetmod 2.1 is it ok??

2:21 PM, March 03, 2007 Yuet said...

yeoh, is it the same firmware & bootloader on your phone? If yes, you can flash to v2.2. You can skip 2.1 as 2.2 is out. :-) Anyway, you can also try v2.1, as it has different theme.

4:07 PM, March 03, 2007 yeoh said...

Hey Yuet, my phone shows this in boot screen:

Boot Loader
SW Version:

OK to Program
Connect USB
Data Cable

so which yuet mod should i use to flash it??
and i am using RSD lite 2.7 to do the flashing is it ok??

10:18 PM, March 04, 2007 Yuet said...

yeoh, too bad, you got the most troublesome bootloader and firmware. AER is a sticky firmware, meaning you can't flash to other firmwares, you can only flash to MP based on AER. and to make thing worse, we still cannot patch the firmware for 09.02 bootloader, that means you can''t even patch the AER firmware to add features such as iTunes.

The only MP you can flash is YuetMod v4.0 for AER. This version won't support iTunes.

Yuet, I'm using a V360 w/:
S/W VERSION R4513_G_08.B7.86R

Is there a way to flash to a ABR or ACR without changing my phone(look, menus, etc.)?

Basically I want to keep everything as I have it now and flash the new firmware so I can seem edit things I want but can't with my current firmware.

12:05 AM, March 12, 2007 Yuet said...

Joey, there is an ACR reflash file available on the internet, which will only change the firmware. Your data will remain. However, your Flex might not work well with ACR firmware.

9:24 PM, March 12, 2007 joey1979 said...

What kind of problems will it cause?

3:38 PM, March 13, 2007 Yuet said...

I can't tell. it may work well or it may have some bugs.

3:25 AM, March 16, 2007 Nacho said...

Hi Yuet!!

Just a comment, when you say that flashbackup 3 should'nt be used to recover or flash a v360 with 08.a0 firmware. Did you noted that there is a new version (3.0.5)? That comes with a special v360 08.a0 option in the cell list.
Also I asked the support and they said it's safe to flash it.

2:04 PM, March 16, 2007 Yuet said...

nacho. noted. I know they will support it in newer version. Web
