Yeah, i know, I should have researched it properly, but I got an import V800 (Z800) phone, and once I realised what I did, I regretted it,
Anyway, hopefully someone can help, I have searched through the old posts, but can't find any new details.
Has anyone confirmed whether or not that guy on trademe was flashing the true NZ firmware?
Or has someone found a copy of the NZ firmware somewhere? Like mutliserver or davinci?
I called mobilefonerepair, but they said they can try, but it might ruin the phone, has anyone successfully had it done with them?
My current firmware is R1AB014, which is the HK one i think.

Help please!!

I believe muppet on here does it and he said that the person who was doing it on trademe used a different tool to him. It involved something like getting the firmware off a vodafone phone (with some caveats - like it hadnt been used yet) and then it would be used to write to the phone you are upgrading. Apparently it worked.

Yeah, I got his email address from someone on here, but havnt heard back from him (the trademe guy) and I PMed muppet, but havent heard from him either.
I guess I gotta wait till one of them get back to me? Unless someone has any other ideas.

It's easy to load Voda NZ compatible firmwares on the Z800's. If you still need help pm me.

I finally convinced the people I got this phone from to flash it with the correct software, as they had described it as a V800, so I was entitled to it. So I can watch mobiletv with it now, but I can't download and music, or vids. I can stream fine, but just can't download things. I can download games happily.
I notice that it still hasnt got the firmware that VFNZ support, but at least its a start.

Anyone got any ideas why it wont download?
