Downloading the software:

First off you need to download the firmware you want and then Multiloader V5.33 which is the program you're going to be using to flash your phone.

F480 / F488 / DOWNLOADER




F480XEHF3 (


F480BOHE3 (branded FW t-mobile) deutsch,english,french ( (

F488ZHHE8 (chinese) (


Make sure you remmeber where you've put these files as you'll need to browse to them when using multiloader.

Preparing your phone:

I am assuming here that you've already installed Samsung PC Studio and it works fine with your supplied USB cable.

NOTE: Flashing your phone will delete all your contacts, calender, settings ringtones etc.

You probably want to back up all your files and contacts. I recommend syncing your contacts etc. with Samsung PC Studio and copying over your files on your phone to your memory card or PC (your memory card will not be touched).

Once that's done remove any memory card you may have and then remove the SIM card. Put you battery back in. Your phone shoul be off at this point. Hold down the 'Volume down' key (The bottom rocker button on the left side of your phone) and the camera button and press the power on button. Your phone should start up into a wierd screen with downloader v.5.32 or something and some boxes. It's now ready to be flashed.

Using Multiloader:

Open multiloader. It should look something like this without all the settings selected (The middle section should be blank!):

Ok, Morpheus originally selected the wrong option in the top box, you should select the second option from the top (MSM6275/MSM6280).

Then press the AMSS button on the left side and browse to the firmware files you want to flash (unzip/rar them as necessary). Go to the binary folder and then select amss_compressed. Do the same for Rsrc1,Rsrc2 and FSS selecting the appropiate files as shown in the above pic.

You should now be ready to flash. Connect your phone to your comp and then click download in multiloader. AT THIS POINT DO NOT TOUCH YOUR PHONE/DETATCH THE CABLE/SWITCH OFF YOUR COMP. Your phone should have a status indicator with percentages and this should be reflected in multiloader. The process should tkae about 5 minutes thgouh I'm not sure about that. Once it's done your phone will restart twice by itself. Once this is done it should start up as normal into the widgets page. It's now complete.

Congratulations on flashing your phone. You can now repalce your SIM and Memory card and set up your phone the way you like it.

Hope this helped. :)

Feel free to steal this tutorial/post it on another website etc., I made it in a few minutes and couldn't care less if you take credit for it.

How do i stop my samsung tocco from freezing all the time

you may want to do a software update for you phone. sometimes when software companies notice glitches like this they create a patch of new firmware to fix the bugs.

here is an article and very import downloadable links for firmware

please rate my help and leave a testimonial if you appreciate my answer.

How to update firmware on the Samsung F480 (Tocco) This information is taken mostly from, but I have compiled all the information myself and updated it with links for software and other information. Enjoy!
A couple of things you need to know first.
This guide has been taken from several sources. Please do not blame me if anything goes wrong. Following these instructions has worked fine for me but I cannot guarantee it will work the same for you.

Make sure to backup all the content on your phone as everything will be deleted including your address book!
You need to have installed Samsung PC Studio first and have it working. It comes packed with the phone or you can download it from the Samsung website.
You will also need the USB cable that was supplied with the phone. Once you have all this you can flash your Tocco!
1. Firstly you must download the Samsung MultiLoader software. I use version 5.33 as I have had no problems with it at all. You can find it attached to this article.
2. Download the latest unbranded firmware. There are some links below which you may find useful to find it. I am currently using F48FXEID1. It is the Eastern European Pink edition from April 2009 which includes some extra backdrops and fonts. The default language is English.
3. Turn off you phone and remove the sim card and memory card from your F480. Power it back on while holding the camera and volume down keys simultaneously (as well as the power on button!).
You should see something like this on your screen:
DEMSBL BOOT Loader for MSM6280
Downloader Ver 5.32

4. Open Samsung MultiLoader and select the firmware files as demonstrated in the screen grab below. When selecting Rsrc2, make sure you select the file which has (Low) in the filename. This is to do with debugging so selecting (Mid) or (High) will slow the interface down (even more). If you're feeling adventurous you can select Full Download and add the BOOTFILES folder to the Boot option. If I'm honest I'm not sure what it changes, but I've tried it myself and it didn't cause any problems. Do not hold me responsible if you brick your phone though!
Somebody has complained in the comments that flashing using the BOOTFILES option has bricked his phone so don't say I haven't warned you.

5. Connect your phone to the PC and click port search in MultiLoader to detect your phone.
6. Hit Download to update your firmware!
This will take a minute or two, your phone will then restart and hey presto, you have updated and debranded your phone!
This does not unlock your phone, but it does add some nice widgets and gets rid of any annoying branding (such as on my Orange UK phone).

Current time and date samsung tocco lite

On the main menu select Settings, then Time & Date.
Set Time zone updating to Manual.
Then SCROLL down i.e. drag the menu upwards (this is the bit that many don't realise.)
Then you will be able to set the time & date.

Lg viewty vs samsung tocco ??????

hi, i work in the mobile industry and own a tocco myself. I would say that for looks the tocco is best but the camera can be slightly fuzzed. The viewty has had reports of software problems but im sure these are quite easily fixed. As per the touch screen, the tocco is more sensitive so is easier for texting but it is heat activated so cant be used wearing gloves or with a stylus, the viewty for the touch screen does need slight pressure applied. Widgets are actually available on the viewty as well, can just be a bit tricky to activate them. Obviously the tocco is much slimmer and lighter. All in all though i would say that samsung is a more trusted make, with less promblems occuring. Why not look into th new LG renoir and The samsung Omnia, bit more expensive but im sure they will have just the features and looks your after and the software is more updated. Hope i have helped!!.....J
