Windows 7 RTM 32 bit and 64 bit ISO Download Link

Other than retail channel version of x86 and x64 Windows 7 RTM final gold DVD ISOs been leaked, the OEM version of Windows 7 Ultimate RTM original untouched and unmodified DVD ISO images have also leaked to internet. The Windows 7  RTM OEM ISO is a non-brand specific image released to OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and system builders, which in turn distribute and support the Windows 7 OEM disc to end-users.

This OEM version of Windows 7 RTM ISO is not to be confused with brand-specific Windows 7 recovery disc or image that distributed by major PC vendors, which make use of OEM-specific digitally signed certificate (.xrm-ms) that matching with BIOS ACPI_SLIC table and OEM royalty SLP (System-Locked Preinstallation) product key for instant offline SLP self-activation. Instead, Windows 7 RTM OEM DVD disc ISO requires OEM NONSLP product keys to activate online or by phone, exactly similar with a retail product key, which distributed and supported directly by MICROSOFT, or OEM COA serial numbers pasted on sticker of new PC. The non OEM SLP key, from product key group ID 182, is similar with retail or upgrade product keys, it can be used only on one computer.
In any cases, there is no need to separately download OEM or retail version of Windows 7 RTM installation DVD ISO, as the retail version of Windows 7 installation can be easily converted by simply using the correct product key (e.g OEM_SLP product key can convert a retail Windows 7 installation to OEM version), as product keys issued by OEM has different base from retail product key. For the DVD ISO images, the only difference between a Windows 7 RTM retail ISO and Windows 7 RTM OEM ISO is at source/ei.cfg file [Channel] heading, which specifies either Retail or OEM channel.

The best way to use Windows 7 for free currently is to rearm Windows 7 for 120 days with no activation required. There are various Windows 7 cracks, activators and toolkits floating in Internet, which currently apply frankenbuild style of hacking by replacing Windows 7 RC pkeyconfig.xrm-ms & tokens.dat files to RTM system. By doing so, Windows 7 system can be activated, but it will expire on March 2010.

How To Update Firmware on SAMSUNG STAR 3G

How To Update Firmware on SAMSUNG STAR 3G

Read a entry i found on a blog's quite nice if you want not to waste your time and money in finding right solution for your phones..
Hello Guys, this is my attempt to make JAVA work on this phone. I was able to do this one also successfully with help from my friend Dark Forest!! :) Thanks Mate . 

OK so now the question is how to do the FIRMWARE UPGRADE & WHY TO DO IT?? Well for starters you canINSTALL JAVA on STAR as you would do on any Nokia or Sony Ericsson phone & second BUG FIXES. Now if you haven't encountered any bug on the phone I'll mention some. The message storage is suppose to be 500, but around only 200+ messages are stored in the phone & then it says inbox full. Also when you have an incoming call or outgoing you cannot see the number to which it is going (provided you have the number stored in your phonebook) When you have multiple numbers stored under single name this is a problem, this has been fixed as you get to see along with the name of the person calling you his/her number. 4 more Russian widgets have been added (If you know Russian good :D ). 3 new games :)

Now 2 things have changed (atleast for me) The "E" indicator which used to come up on the screen on the top to indicate if the GPRS session is active, is always there & second initially when I needed to use the gesture control on the phone I used to press the lock button slightly & the screen wouldnt get unlocked but just be in standby mode & i could write the character on the screen & it would work. This has changed, now in order to achive this I have to press the call pickup/call cut or the back button on the Star 3G & regarding the E indicator, Dark Forest has confirmed it, thats nothing to worry about. It just means that GPRS Edge is available on your network, it will turn red if connected to the net. That is normal with all open market firmware. :) So problem solved. :D

Now to get on with the Firmware Upgrade (Flashing)

1st -> You have to check if you have SIM LOCK enabled on your phone.Type *#7465625# and see. SIM LOCK SHOULD BE OFF. Do not proceed if you have it ON, get it to a shop & have it disabled.

2nd -> BACKUP YOUR PHONE!!! Your contacts, messages, pictures, wallpapers, ringtones, music, gprs settings etc.. (I have provided with GPRS setting for Vodafone Mumbai below)

3rd -> You will require USB cable (The one which came with your phone) & PC Suite. Make sure PC suite is installed before you start the process as it has the drivers necessary for communicating with your phone.Make sure the phone is communicating with your PC using PC Suite.

4th -> You need to download the firmware from Dark Forest's Site as shown below.

Side by side also download Multiloader from here

5th -> Now unpack the FIRMWARE files in a folder also make sure no program in your system start-up is occupying the COM ports. PC Suite will also cause a problem, so to fix it do as shown below.

Now that you have done this, switch off your phone, remove the battery, sim & micro SD. Place the battery back inside & press the volume down button,camera button & the power button all together. the phone will power up & will have a screen as shown below. In the mean time also restart you PC (This is very IMPORTANT)

Now that you PC is restarted connect the phone to the PC using the USB cable.

Now before going on further with the actually FIRMWARE UPGRADE(FLASHING) a disclaimer.


Now thats clear, lets begin.

1st -> Open up MULTILOADER & select the options in the exact order as shown below.

2nd -> Now after selecting the MSM6275/MSM6280/MSM6290 option, select the option as shown below.

3rd -> Now that the BOOT LOADER files are in place lets proceed to FULL DOWNLOAD. Do EXACTLY as shown below.

4th -> Now with Rsrc1

5th -> The next step is VERY IMPORTANT, choose Rsrc2 (LOW) & not (MID). MID is know to have problems while booting the phone.

6th -> Now the Factory Setting files.

7th -> & finally the MASTER ROM.

8th -> At last the MULTILOADER should look like below, now click on the PORT SEARCH.

Once you have pressed PORT SEARCH, the COM PORT will come up in the filed shown, Click on DOWNLOAD.

Now sit back and wait, Multi loader will erase the rom and prepare it for rewrite in a matter of seconds. immediately after, it will begin the download process, this could take up to 20 minutes depending on you computers speed. After the process is complete, Your phone may restart on its own, this is ok. If your phones does not restart on its own, just remove the battery for a few minutes & reinstall your sim and memory card and you are ready to go! You may need to manually enter your wap and MMS settings but some providers sim will reset automatically.(I have provided with VODAFONE MUMBAI settings below)

Dark Forest's has recommend preforming a hard reset after a flash. This just makes sure every thing is cleared out and the firmware loads clean but this is not required.(In my case I had to do this)

You can perform a hard reset by typing *2767*3855# into the hand set (but not necessary.)
When the phone resets type *#1234# into your handset to check your new firmware version. :D

Thats it you are done.

Now with GPRS settings.Type as shown below.

Go to Menu -> Settings -> Network Settings -> Connections.
Create a new connection here with name Vodafone Live!
Acess Name -> portalnmms
Auth type -> Normal
User ID & password -> leave this blank.
Protocol -> HTTP
Home URL ->
Proxy Address ->
Linger time -> 300
Don't touch the Advanced Settings option.

If you were looking for a method to update firmware on Samsung STAR (5233/S5230) visit Dark Forest's sitehere. The Firmware for 5233/s5230 can be found on his site here.

How To Install Java Games/Applications on Samsung Star 3G

Read this entry on a blog i's quite interesting and the info is more..!!

Hello to all the Frustrated users of "THE ALL NEW SAMSUNG STAR & STAR 3G". The reason you are on this page is because you were looking for a way out on HOW TO INSTALL Java Games / Applications on this awesome phone. I personally went thru a HELL trying to figure that out. I tried all the possible ways Google results had to offer.Finally emailed Samsung support who told me to call their helpline (which btw is pathetic) I asked the female there how do i install Java on my phone, she replied "IT CANNOT BE DONE" as the phone did not support 3rd party softwares. I replied but the phone has Google maps, which is 3rd party so how can it not support 3rd party software. To this she did not have any reply & gave me a ref. no. & told me that someone from the tech department will call, which i got only for the person to tell me that for this problem i have to call their service center in Santacruz (Mumbai,India).
So i called this number 66756952 & some guy named Mathew answers the phone. I told him my problem & he is like this cannot be done as the phone does not support 3rd party. If i wanted any other application/games i need to download it from Samsung's website which is paid. I said this doesn make sense, why am i suppose to pay when i get the stuff for free & wouldn't the stuff downloaded from Samsung's website be 3rd party? After a LOOONNNGGG argument with this dumb ass he finally said that he will try to figure out a way to install Java on this phone as he himself did not know how it was to be done.He noted down my number & said he will call me in 2 days time. But i was not satisfied with his assurance & being a IT person myself just couldn't give up. So i continued to figure out a way & luckily after 2 days of that phone call i did tumble upon a forum that had a solution for the same problem but for Samsung Eternity .
I tried it out & EUREKA it worked :) so finally the 3rd day I called the service center & spoke to Mathew & told him that he was suppose to call me, but he didn't. He said he was busy & din get time to do that, I said anyways I have found the way to INSTALL JAVA APPLICATIONS & GAMES ON STAR & Java Apps & Games are running absolutely fine on my phone. I said so just don't give the customers wrong info as 3rd party software don't work. They DO. He said he knows 3rd party software do work on such phone & he had a very good knowledge about it as HE HAD A iPHONE..(lolz)...
I just kept the phone down by saying,"No wonder you don't know anything about you own product."

Anyways that was my experience with the Samsung Customer Support. Now to get on with the cracking of Java in this phone :)


Ok, lets start. We will require 3 things

  • TKFileExplorer
  • Jar creator (optional, required only if your Java file ".jar" does not have a .jad file.Download here)
  • Java App/Game you want to install. :)
Step 1 -> Download and install TKFileExplorer from here Also if you haven't installed PC STUDIO or the USB driver, now will be a good time to do that.

Step 2 -> Open TKFileExplorer and go to Settings then choose COM. On Port,
click the drop down menu and choose the only port that is visible (something like port 5/port 6). In my case it was port 8. (IF COM PORT IS NOT PRESENT, TYPE IN MANUALLY.START FROM COM1,COM2.. so on)

NOTE* You must NOT be connected in PC Studio program. 

Now click on FILE and CONNECT or in the icon as shown below.

Step 3 -> On the bottom Left of TKFileExplorer, browse through these folders Exe -> Java -> Games.
Now that you are in Games, Create a folder on your machine with the name of the game & paste the .jar & .jad file in that folder.Now go back to TKFileExplorer & browse for that location where you have made the folder right click & Select Download.

Thats it you done for the TKFileExplorer part. Discconect your phone by clicking the icon or by File -> Disconnect.

Now open up your dial pad and enter the following, *#6984125*#.
Choose INTERNALS and enter the following, *#9072641*#.
Now scroll down and choose Storage Settings. Then Update Java DB, followed by update Apps database.
Now you are finished. Go to Menu - Applications -> Games & More. Your newly installed App should be visible!!! :)
Now That you have fixed your JAVA issue, lets jazz up the phone a little bit. Below are some wallpapers i created for my phone.You guys can download it if you like them.
I have made the wallpapers along with the menu image for it.There are some more which i'll upload shortly.


Well many users told me that they were not able to see COM ports or TkExplorer crashed while they were using it, so if you are one of them this part is for you.

1st -> Reboot your phone.

2nd -> Uninstall pc studio & delete the .ini file created by TkExplorer,reboot your system & do a fresh install after reboot.

3rd -> Go to Menu ->Settings-> Phone Settings-> PC Connections & select ASK ON CONNECTION -> Save. Now when you connect you will be asked for which type of connection.Choose PC studio & MAKE SURE PC STUDIO APPLICATION IS NOT RUNNING.

4th -> Also I hope you guys are not trying to select multiple files/folder? Just make a folder of one game (should contain its .jar & .jad file) & download that file in the phone in the location I have mentioned ONE AT A TIME FOLDER BY FOLDER.

5th -> Also (I might be stupid to ask this :P ) But does your phone have enough free space, I mean not the addon memory card, the INTERNAL MEMORY.

6th -> Make sure your bluetooth is off or any other application for that matter

7th -> Download this USB modem driver (as last option, for people who still cant get the COM port)

------------------------------------ALTERNATE METHOD------------------------------------
If the above method didn't work for you then this is the alternate one I found on a forum, but you need to have GPRS activated in your phone for this to work.

Download via WAP LITE FTP
Go to look for an option called Quick Download (at the end of the page). Enter 51799 as the code (thats the code for LITE FTP) -> Download.

Once downloaded connect your phone to PC using your USB cable. Now you can either choose PC studio option or you can choose Mass Storage option. Now once you have decided what option all you need to do is make a folder in your memory card of the games name & paste the .jar & .jad file of the game in memory card.

Now disconnect your phone & start LITE FTP . which should be installed in Menu->Application->Games & more ->Lite Ftp

Once LITE FTP is started go to your memory card & copy that game folder you just created & paste it in the 1st folder which is named "My Private My Photos My games......"

Now open up your dial pad and enter the following, *#6984125*#.
Choose INTERNALS and enter the following, *#9072641*#.
Now scroll down and choose Storage Settings. Then Update Java DB, followed by update Apps database.Update media database.Create AX Dat File

Now you are finished. Go to Menu - Applications -> Games & More. Your newly installed App should be visible!!! :)
