I desperately need the huawei u8180-7 TNZ firmware for my phone and I can't find any downloads anywhere!!!   I accadently flashed the Vodafone firmware which runs on 900/2100 mhz baseband and telecom network is 850/2100 mhz so I only get signal where there is a 2100mhz tower which is basically nowhere -.-

Please help me somehow by someone uploading this firmware or helping me enable 850mh baseband, any help is much appreciated and thanks in advance

I assume you sourced it from Telecom??

You could email me pl at telecom dot co dot nz the IMEI of the device, and I can check around and see if it can be found or not...

Don't like your chances tho..

I'm running CM7 on my Telecom u8180 and I don't have any radio issues, but I did upgrade from the vanilla Telecom ROM.

Looks like there is some good progress on the CM 9 and CM10 builds as well.

Do you think you could backup your current rom or send me a link to the telecom vanilla rom or something? I heard somewhere that you can flash different radios if your phone hardware can support it. But I'm not too sure and can't find anything anywhere -.-

I'm still fiddling and have changed my baseband to AUS2 which I believe is 850mhz only which in theory should pick up a signal because telecom xt network is 850/2100mhz only. The problem now I think is that the 850mhz radio frequency is not working?? When I change it to AUS band (pretty sure it's 850/2100mhz) my phone gets a signal and also all the other bands which have 2100mhz so my thoughts are that my phone is only picking up the 2100mhz signal which is only in a few areas in nz -.- Now I have read that you can access your phones service menu via dialler codes but I cannot find any for the huawei ideos x1 which is a shame because all of the codes havn't worked. Or I read somewhere that flashing a new modem to my device with the 850mhz band in it will also solve the problem but I have no idea which one will be suitable for me.......basically I need phone signal for work etc and have noo idea what to to do to resolve the problem and that's why I came to this forum in hope that one of you experts can help haha. If anyone can suggest something once again thaks :)

Regards
Jason

I've had a chat with the device testing guys.

They have said if you do send it to Telegistics via going into a Telecom store they should normally attempt to flash to stock Telecom rom back onto the phone.

There would be a charge for this (and one assumes it would be less than buying a new phone)

If it could be recovered then the folks at Telegistics would normally try, but that would be with the caveat that if you've screwed up your phone from doing something you really shouldn't have then you'll be up for the service fee and perhaps get a phone back which can't be fixed.

Such is the dangers of flashing a phone with a foreign rom which may or may not do bad things to your phone, especially the baseband radio.
