    you had what rom version before

    • 04/26/2013


      I had 4.2.1,  i think date was : 20130322_e2006_v89_jbaol1
      Now is dead.

      I used SP flash tool v3.1304, (v1252 didnt worked) on win7 x64, run as administrator.
      i select scater loading file, everything looks ok, i click upgrade.
      Everything was ok, at end ar restart, i had blank screen, phone buttons was on, but phone didnt worker. Afret that i tried same way to download older firmware from this site and… process stopped in the middle. with error.

      Flash tool find the phone as MTK USB port, but then after try to upgrade first thing i get error BROM ERROR: S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) – [EMI] Enable DRAM Failed!

      Phone do not react holding together  volume up + power or volume down + power
      With battery computer recognize it as MTK USB Port (on usb2 or usb33 …)

    I'll try to find you another rom.

    I made the same stupid mistake (clicked upgrade)

    I should have clicked download maybe ?!


  5. 04/14/2013


    Same error here with an other phone (S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032)).

    Recognize by windows like a MTK port without battery …

    With this linked flashtool v3.1252 i think is not possible to upgrade N9500 – i get error S_UNSUPPORTED_VER_OF_DA (1022), because of that i used flash tool v3.1304 (whis is from end of jan 2013) here i get error S_FT_ENABLE_DRAM_FAIL (4032) . But my phone is still bricked…. I think N9500 is produed from mar.2013, so maybe is somewhere flastool from march to work better with n9500?  (what exactly mean download agent in flashtool?)

    I also got my phone to be recognized as DA USB VCOM Port, but here SPFlash tool dont start any action… just waiting (searching).

    Also this new ROM from 2013-04-19 dont repair phone, here is even older flashtool v3.1216 whic do not reocgnize scatter file

    Anyone have any advice how to make phone alive?

    I rescue my phone.
    - i downloaded from this site firmware for Star S5 with the name Root_DelChina_MP_mt89_v9_c05_pulid_jb2_20130321-160914_PC

    - i used SPflash tool v3.1304.0.119
    - Phone with no battery , disconected.
    - start flash tool, select scatter file srom s5 rom directory
    - i clicked "dowload"
    - I connected the phone
    - flash tool did something, and in ca 3-5 second i got warnint that is better to clikc  "Firmware update" so i cliked this firmware update
    - disconect phone from USB , and connect it agani
    - flash tool started to flash the phone !!!! (no error DRAM_FAIL!!!)
    - everything went ok, flash completed.

    I tried to run the phone, but screen just turned on back light and of and on …
    So… i tried new flash with correct rom for N9500 – downloaded here with date 2013-04-19, and process started!!! no error, finished. Disconnect the phone, put the battery on, i put the phone to the charger (i was not sure how is battery) and luckily i have working phone.

    Thanx to SoCr@Te for ROM – this one works !!

    camera dont work!

  9. 04/26/2013


    I fix the camera, in ROM is not selected ok.
    I took SP multi port download tool and i changed sensors to:

    screen: LT050ANKP019A
    main sensor: ov8825_mipi_raw
    sub sensor: hi253_yuv

    Then i "downloaded" with flash tool only UBOOT (file lk.bin – which was changed), and now phone works with booth cams.
