Question about Sony Ericsson M600i Cellular Phone

Phone can not boot completed after restore my m600i's GDFS file to my friend's m600i

I tried to upgrade my friend's m600i today. I restored my own m600i's GDFS file( which is lastest version firmware) to my friend's m600i. After update all of firmware by SEUS. This phone's boot "status bar" amlost stay on 95% around and didn't go forward after I type my SIM card password.
I think may be cause the "phone lock number" is different between the two phones.
Any solution I can take ?

Can you help me to get the master reset code of sony ericcson M600i ? the imei : 35931500-323174-2...pleaseee....thanx before

There is a restore option for this phone that will clear all data, and return it to its original state.

Select back up manager, as when making a backup, but you will see
the restore option, select restore.

All the data is written over, all the data on the phone, and do not at all
touch the phone until it is done, or you can wreck the phone.

Remember, this will erase everything that is on the phone just as it was when brand new.

If you need to save anything and don't know how just ask again.

My phone is off each time i switch it on it just blinks and off i was told that it is a software Problem how can i solve it

you'ld have to download pretty good amount of this to do this. Follow step by step to the following procedure:

  • Downloads
    1. USB Flash Driver (
    2. XS++ 3.1 Darwin
    Please download all of these files before proceeding.
1.) Converting to CID52 (if required)If XS++ detects a DB2020 CID49 or CID51 phone, it will automatically ask if the user wants to upgrade.
CAUTION!!! If You Upgrade To CID52, You Can Not Revert Back To CID49 Or CID 51.

2) Backing up GDFS
Backing up the GDFS isn't something which necessarily has to be done when flashing firmware, but it is a very good way to ensure you don't damage your phone beyond repair.

Step 1.
Take battery out of phone and put back in (do not turn phone on). Open XS++ and click Connect. Hold down the "C" button on the phones keypad and connect the USB cable. If this is the first time you flash your phone you will need to install the Flash drivers.

Step 2.
Click on the GDFS tab

Step 3.
Click "Backup GDFS" and wait (shouldn't take more than about half a minute).

Step 4.
Done i_bigsmile.gif

3) Flashing the firmware
Step 1.
Take battery out of phone and put back in (do not turn phone on). Open XS++ and click Connect. Hold down the "C" button on the phones keypad and connect the USB cable.

Step 2.
Select the firmwares (make sure you extract them first) by clicking the "..." buttons or simply dragging the file from the explorer to the box (don't get mixed up with FS and MAIN).
Click "Flash" and wait (this takes a while, 6-7 minutes is normal).

Step 3.
Flashing is done, you can breathe now

*) Recovering from a bad flash
*WARNING* flashing a GDFS that did not originally come from that exact handset may have severe consequences. By exact handset I mean your handset, not your friends unlocked handset, YOUR HANDSET!

If a flash goes bad, two things need to be done:
1. You need to flash the firmware for the model you had before (when you did the GDFS backup), and
2. You need to restore GDFS.

For flashing follow from step 3 above. Do the GDFS restore after flashing and customizing the handset.

Step 1.
Take battery out of phone and put back in (do not turn phone on). Open XS++ and click Connect. Hold down the "C" button on the phones keypad and connect the USB cable. If this is the first time you flash your phone you will need to install the Flash drivers

Step 2.
Click on the GDFS tab

Step 3.
Select the backup you wish to restore. Click “Write GDFS”.

Step 4.

My phone hang

It seems your phone is running out of memory. M600i comes with 60 to 80 MBs internal memory. The phone treats larger part of the memory as RAM. And UIQ3 the OS on this phone retains the applications in its RAM once it is opened till you go to Task manager and press exit program. Thus, phone has no other option but to restart to free some memory and show the above message. In your case as you've said the phone restarts after few seconds try this as soon as it starts and home screen appears:- 
  • press (use the jog dial {wheel} and the star key) >*<<*<* (thats:- up*down down*down*) service menu will appear 
  • choose format/restore phone settings whichever applies to your phone enter the security code by default it is (12345). It will format the phone's internal memory which is also used as RAM in M600i. The error message "the phone was restarted to improve performance" appears when there is no more free memory left in the phone's internal memory. Try this and post the result.

Master reset code for M600i

The security code can be changed and still be in effect with all locks off. Try 6 0's (000000). I didn't see that listed in the things you've attempted. If its been changed, the only way to determine that is to contact the previous owner and see if they remember it. If not, it will have to have all new software written to the phone. Basically like a format / reinstall.
