New Samsung Omnia 7 firmware leaked: I8700XXKD1


A new Samsung Omnia 7 firmware dated April 2011 and labeled I8700XXKD1 has just been leaked today. I unfortunately don’t have time to flash it right now to find out if there’s anything new compared to the previous XKC1 firmware and the recent update that has been pushed out to the device earlier this week.
I will have to flash it later which means going back to NoDo then re-update my phone to Mango Beta 2. Kinda annoying but if you guys want me to do it leave me a comment below and I’ll try to take some time tonight to perform the test.

UPDATE: As stated in the comments below there’s currently no way to flash the Binary (bin) part of firmware which is apparently unsigned and can’t be uploaded to a retail devices (but should work on OEM/Engineering samples). But to be sure of this can you guys who get the same error as me tell me if you are running NoDo or Mango please?

    Well, I don’t know :) I got .bin error or smt like that in WP7 Downloader

    i’m having the same .bin error, tried also with downloader 7.03 and does not work…. :(

  • Eptesicus13

    this is the error: “device do not match the selected binary”

  • Ccmd_232

    I got an error saying:
    ” This device does not match with selected binary, Downloader will not do anything”

    Ok, just came back home and tried it out. Firmware can’t be uploaded to retail devices cause .bin is signed for internal/engineering devices only.

    tried flashing over mango b2 and restored also to nodo 7392 on my omnia 7. none of the metods worked for me

  • Ccmd_232
