Hello,


Setool2 lite v.1.11 it's free but powerful demo of Setool2, which work without setool2 dongle / box. It's demo so it can work only with phones based on DB2010/DB2012 CID49/50/51/52 and DB2020 CID49/51/52 platforms. Cid 53 is not supported, but you can downgrade it using our online service or use other programs for cid 53, like far manager.

This user guide contains a few parts:

1. Introduction - presentation of basic functions.
2. Identify procedure - how correctly read program log.
3. First step - GDFS backup.
4. Flashing - changing firmware.
5. DB2010/DB2020 patching - simlock remove and tuning.

15. Identify button.
16. That button you should press only, when setool2 lite will ask for that.
17. That button will abort all current operations.
18. Exit button, will turn off setool2 lite.

2. Phone identify.

- turn off your phone or reinsert battery,
- press Identify button,
- hold on "C" button on your phone and connect USB cable.

If you are doing it for the first time, wait until Windows will detect your phone and install drivers. Setool2 will detect your phone automatically and show you log.

Let's analyse that.

1. IMEI - should be the same as under battery and on your phone box.
2. Flash CID and colour - very important information. During flashing procedure you must use mbn and fbn files desired for your CID. Phone should have RED colour - that's retail domain. If your phone based on DB2020 platform has lower cid than 52, you can upgrade it to 52 using for example XS++.
3. Phone model information.
4. Language package. For central Europe it is EMEA_1 (DB2010) or Central_Europe (DB2020).
5. Firmware version.
6. Information about simlock - four 0 means there is no simlock.

3. GDFS backup.

Before you will start any work with Setool2 lite, you should backup your GDFS. It's important, because if anything will go wrong, you can bring your phone to working state. If you don't have your GDFS backup, you can repair your phone in our online service.

Furthermore in GDFS you have stored phone book. If you have GDFS backup, using Setool2 full version you can extract it.

To make GDFS backup you should:

- choose correct phone model,
- press Read GDFS button,
- turn off your phone or reinsert battery,
- hold on "c", "2", "5", 2i5", "*i2" button (depends of phone model),
- when you will see "phone detached" and "READY" information you can disconnect phone.

GDFS backup is saved in main setool2 folder:

4.Flashing - firmware change.

It's very simple procedure. You can reflash your phone with any firmware desired for your phone. It's worth to flash the latest available firmware, because phone will be working quick and stable with all new features implemented by Sony Ericsson. Using that procedure you can also crossflash your phone - write firmware from other model (for example K750 @ W800 or K530 @ W660 ).

Attention!

Before you will flash your phone :

- Backup all data from your phone (phone book, text messages, pictures, music, videos and other files ) using for example My Phone Explorer:Attached File  MyPhoneExplorer_Setup_1.8.5.exe   6.75MB   474 downloads

All data in your phone will be erased during that procedure!!!

Flashing procedure:

1. Choose correct phone model.

2. Press "Add" button and add 2 firmware files:
a) Main .mbn file,
b) File system .fbn file

Make sure, that files are desired for your phone model and cid version.

3. Press three dots near Misc files and add customization package (.zip archive). If you will flash wrong custiomization after flash you will see "Contact your network provider" message. To repair that just reflash phone with correct customization.

4. Press Flash button, hold "c" button and connect turned off phone.

5. Wait about 10 minutes untill you will see READY message - after that you can disconnect phone, reinsert battery and turn on your phone:

Here is an example log from correct flahing procedure:

Spoiler


Using that method you can reflash any phone, supported by SeTool2 lite. Here is list of phone, that you can crossflash (use firmware from other model): http://www.sonyerics...niz-oryginalne/

If you have DB2010 phone with flash CID 36 - use GFlash:Attached File  GFlash.rar   841.72K   57 downloads


5. DB2010 / DB2012 platform patching.

Using Setool2 lite we can patch any supported DB2010/DB2012 and DB2020 Sony Ericsson phone. Patches are useful if we want to remove simlock, improve our phone functionality or protect it by password (privacy patch).

Before we will start patching DB2010/DB2012 phone, you must make sure that setool2 lite has restoration file for your phone. It is file that will "wake up" your phone after patch apply.

To check that just identify your phone:
 

5.png


As you can see: RESTORATION FILE NOT PRESENT - that means you must create it.

There are 2 methods:

a) Use restoration file generator which you can find in setool2 lite folder. Unfortunately it works with .ssw files only so for us it's quite useless.
b) Easier method: use restoration file maker: Attached File  RestMaker.rar   1.56MB   87 downloads . Just open your main .mbn file and create restoration file. Then copy / paste it to Setool2 lite rest folder

When you will create restoration file, identify phone again and make sure that everything is ok:

 

6.png


As you can see, RESTORATION FILE PRESENT, so we can go to next step - patching of your phone. To apply patch search for patches desired for your phone model and firmware. Patch must be desired for your firmware, if you will write wrong patch, your phone will not turn on. You can't write patches from other model. The only exception is when you've flashed your phone for example K750 with W800 R1BD001 firmware - then you must search for W800 R1BD001 patches .

Patches you can find as vkp file or text:
 

;W800 SW-R1BD001
;Zamiana białej listy w czarną listę
;turn whitelist to blacklist
;(ń) the_laser
;(p) Yar
44DE3CAC: BF41 FF43

Copy that to notepad and save with .vkp extension.

Patching procedure:

1. Choose phone model, in our case W800i
2. Press on three dots located near Misc files and add .vkp patch
3. Press Write script button
4. Connect turned off phone holding "c" button
5. Follow program instructions and when asked, press READY button.
6. After that connect turned off phone holding "c" again
7. Iff you want to apply patch, press "NO". If you want to remove patch, press "YES".
8. When you will see READY information, you can disconnect phone, reinsert battery and turn on phone.

If anything will go wrong and after that phone will not turn on:

a) make sure that restoration file was properly flashed. If no, create working one.należy się upewnić, że plik REST został prawidłowo wgrany. Jeśli nie, należy poszukać innego.
b) if patch was wrong, remove it.

Remember: in both cases you can just reflash main .mbn file - phone will be fully working after that. All patches you must apply again.

Using that method you can remove simlock. You can generate patch for simlock using that generator: Attached File  SIMLockPatchGen_v2.2.rar   255.74K   74 downloads just drag and drop main file on the program icon and patch will be created.

Attention! Every time you will reflash your phone, you have to apply all patches again (including simlock patch). If you will not do that - phone will be locked.

You can unlock your DB2010 phone with CID 49 forever using our online service.


6. DB2020 platform patching.

Here procedure is much easier, we do not have to create restoration files. All we need to do is to flash main using bypass method and apply Quick Access patch during that method.

All you need is:

- main .mbn file desired for your phone and cid,
- Quick Access patch for your main.

That package contains Quick Access patch collection for most popular DB2020 firmwares : Quick Access Pack

If there is no Quick Access patch for your firmware, you can create it using that program: Attached File  qamaker.rar   28.48K   54 downloads


Before you will start that procedure, make sure that battery is fully charged, memory card and sim card removed from your phone.


How to apply Quick Access patch:

1. Choose your phone from the list,
2. Check "Bypass DB2020 security" option,
3. Add proper main file, desired for your phone and cid,
4. In Misc files add Quick Access patch with .vkp extension, desired for your main,
5. Press flash button and connect turned off phone holding "c" button:
 

8.png




After a few minutes follow program instructions, then press READY.
 

9.png


After that connect turned off phone holding "c". Setool2 will flash main.

After few minutes Setool2 will ask if you want to remove patch. Choose "NO":
 

10.png


After that Quick Access patch will be written:
 

11.png



Since now you can patch your phone using QA method.

How to patch DB2020 phone:

1. Choose your phone model.
2. Check "Use quick access patch" option.
3. In misc files add patch desired for your phone model and firmware version.
4. Press "Write script" button and connect turned off holding "c" button.
5. When setool2 will ask if you want to remove patch, choose "NO".
 

12.png


Your phone is patched now :) If you want to remove patch, just repeat procedure and in fifth point choose "YES".

Attention!!!

After each phone flash you must apply Quick Access patch again.

You can also remove simlock using that method, use Simlock Patch Generator to create unlocking patch.

If you want to remove your simlock forever or want to repair your DB2020 phone / downgrade CID to 52, you are welcome in our online service.
