How to update firmware on the Samsung F480 (Tocco)
information is taken mostly from GSM-Forum.com, but I have compiled all
the information myself and updated it with links for software and other
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
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
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).
