Samsung Omnia i900 New Latest ROM (i900DXHH1) or H1

I bought my Samsung OMNIA when it was pre-released during the recent PC Fair (1-3 Aug 2008) in KL Convention Centre. I paid RM200 as deposit and a week later I got the unit which total price Rm2799 (8GB version).

The unit that I get had a ROM version that have haptic feedback when using its Samsung keypad/keyboard. However, I immediately upgrade the phone to G4 ROM which was available for download at samsung official download site for Omnia i900 HERE.

After successfully upgrade to G4 ROM, I realized that the new ROM although much better in term of the additional features but eliminate the significant haptic feedback function which is OMNIA’s most significant arsenal when comparing with other WinMos.

It really disappointed  me a lot. I went back to the store and I found out that all the newly sold Omnia already preloaded with the G4 ROM.

Then I immediately went to Samsung Customer Service Centre in Low Yatt but the service is terrible! The lady in the front counter not only rude but know very little about ROM, firmware, etc especially WinMo models.

After some searchs from internet especially from www.ppcsg.com which so far I believe the most extensive forum that covers Samsung OMNIA, I discover that a new ROM (H1) was alrealy released but not yet available for download. It said the new ROM have more features AND come with the haptic feedback if using Samsung keypad/keyboard. Wow!

Then I went to another Samsung Service Centre in Subang Jaya (the HQ for FMG, the Samsung Mobile distributor for Malaysia). There I can see some light this time…

The lady said the firmware does exist (First good sign) but then she said even with the new ROM, it still does not have the haptic feedback. What?!

Then, I said, oklah, just flashed to the new ROM anyway….

After 1 hour, she brought my newly flashed Omnia that she surprisingly told me that “now your OMNIA does have the haptic feedback.” She felt slight shameful but nevermind at least I have what I wanted from Omnia.

So, with the new ROM, your Samsung OMNIA i900 should have the following features:

  1. Haptic feedback when using Samsung keypad/keyboard.
  2. Finger scrolling works in native WinMo Programs and Settings as well as in File Explorer.
  3. Better integration for the clock, alarm, world clock.
  4. More animation choices for the Screen rotation.
  5. Floating button to assist finger scrolling in Main Menu/Programs
  6. Additional Page in Main Menu
  7. DLNA Server application

  2. Asalaamu Alaykum,
    I am also contemplating buying the Omnia insha’Allah; it has just been released in the UK and looks like a certain contender to the Iphone 3g. Could you possible do an update blog on how you are getting along with the device and any negatives. JazakhAllahu khairen. Good to see you do not support Hadhari Islam, had to look it up though, as we call them progressive, though the term is misleading as they are really backward for relegating Islam to their own desire. May Allah help us.
    Wassalaam

  6. Greetings from Penang. I was using the HTC TyTNII until I got my first Samsung (thot it was rediculous to have VGA on a 2.8″ scrren – TouchPro) as an upgrade. Love it so far. I am going to send it for the HI Rom update tomorrow and have a few question before I do that.

    1. I know MYStorage will be intact but will a restore (using SPB Backup) work with no campatibility issue with the new ROM?

    2. I noticed Omnia’s touchscreen is not so stylus friendly as HTC’s being less sensitive. Any improvement in that area with H1 ROM?

    3. Battery life. Earlier versions leaked reduces it quite a bit. Any issues here with yours?

    Overall impression/improvement you care to share with this update would be appreciated.

    Thanks a lot!

  8. JazzakAllah for your very informative post brother. Just got myself a Samsung OMNIA. Was not sure if it was safe to go ahead with using the Updater program, but you’ve answered my doubts. Thanks again.

  9. Asalaamu Alaykum,

    The new LG Prada PhoneII(KF900) comes with a hot bonus, Prada Link, a fancy Bluetooth watch plus a pair of headsets and a leather pouch. These three may add a bit of elegance to the handset, .

    The New Samsung Gravity(T450) has finally been released to the U.K market and is now on sale out our store at a very cheap and affordable price…For those of you that might want to buy in large quantity hurry now…Before the Samsung gravity lover’s would place their orders…

    NEW Samsung INNOV8 (i8510)
    The New Samsung INNOV8 (8mega pixels 16GB) is loaded with features and sports massive storage. If you’re in the market for a mobile phone that can do just about anything the INNOV8 should be on your shortlist.

    New Nokia N82
    Nokia’s latest N-series handset combines the form factor of the N73 and the feature set of the N95 into one powerful camera-phone package.The N82 is a cheaper phone for most who could not afford the N73 and N95…You will be surprised at the great combinations, It has all the features of the N73 and N95 just for you.

    Nokia N96
    It’s a little slimmer and it has loads of storage, but Nokia’s latest flagship model has little to justify its top-shelf price tag.

    New LG Renoir KC910
    With an excellent 8-megapixel camera and a finger-friendly touchscreen, the Renoir is exactly what it sets out to be: one of the best camera phones of the year.

    New Sony Ericsson C902
    Camera phones with 5 megapixels are no longer just for people with huge pockets. The C902 packs a very mean shooter into a very slim package and delivers excellent photos.
