I'm at work right now so i cant access the link here, but i'll do so when i get home! The process itself isnt as simple as the video attached shows(TRUST ME, u still need to alter the file path and only then will it work! There is alot of copying and renaming involved as well! My phone still has the bootloader, the pc studio is still responding, the only difference is that in addition to asphalt there is a poker game and some other game, there a few more widgets and the download folder i mentioned in the earlier post is like an app store shortcut but most of the apps aren't free! the browser responds quicker and it loads faster! but the basic interface is the same just a few improvements! I'm not sure if the flashed would affect your language pack but if it is stored in the mass memory then its not affected when flashed! But be sure to have Windows XP OS! 'll give u the link!

i'm planning to buy a phone and i'm having a hard time choosing between omnia 2 (i8000) and omnia hd (i8910)... its really a battle of the os but which is better??? pls help... tnx
hey omnia hd user it's this video about omnia hd trouble is true??? watch this.
Unfortunately, now that we have a retail unit, we're not as impressed with the video quality as we were when we previewed the pre-release version. The Samsung Omnia HD video recording is still miles ahead of the competition but the results in our preview were definitely better. Perhaps the improvement of the audio quality has resulted in lowering of the video quality as a compromise.
The video resolution is no longer stunning as it was and when you add the excessive camera shake, the impression that you're looking at something taken by a dedicated HD digital camcorder is all gone.
In almost all the cases the framerate was variable and went below the promised 24fps giving the videos somewhat choppy looks. We aren't talking disastrously many dropped frames but there are about one every second in some videos. You might not even notice that if shooting slower moving objects but more rapid movements looks bad. The Samsung Omnia HD is not really the soccer mom's dream.
The Omnia camcorder interface is identical to the one of the still camera and allows the user to choose between fixed and auto focus for the video. Effects are also available and a gridline can be applied to the viewfinder for easier framing.
Strangely enough image stabilization isn't available when shooting video and that is precisely where we would have needed it the most. The camera shake is seriously plaguing most of our samples.
Recording time is not exactly limited, the real limit is imposed on the maximum file size for each recording. In this case videos don't get any bigger than 2GB. With 720p recording that means 30-40 minutes of footage and we cannot see anyone needing much more.
When you are done recording a video clip, the Omnia HD displays the viewfinder but doesn't let you start another recording straight away. Instead you have to wait for a while, as the handset saves the video in its memory. Now this is to be expected with such large files but a status indicator would have been nice so you can tell when you are ready to start another recording.
Is it just me, or is this phone's video extremely overhyped?

I kno i said that i would wait but i just couldnt! I FLASHED to the I8910XXII1 firmware! It has the 3d multitask option the dial keys have letter added, there is a downloads shortcut in the apps folder, the browser stop bug is no more, i havent checked the camera or video as yet, music is amazingly loud and clear, aac codec seems better than the one on my previous firmware! all in all its great but the process wasnt easy! Now instead of my handset starting up as the SAMSUNG I8910 HD its now the SAMSUNG OMNIA HD, i just did it like seconds ago so i'm not sure and i too signed the petition number 527 lol now back to hacking this baby.
Hardware has failed this phone tremendously. Started with the poor speaker quality and then went on with software issues.
Maybe Samsung should do a Omnia HD mini ... and re launch this. It will be a good time to do this especially when n97 mini is doing really well and SE is about to announce Kurara.
The specs on paper looks awesome but they need to bring the price more to reality and focus on improving the size and quality. Sad to see Samsung starting the game well ahead but its way behind Sony and Nokia for 2009 on smartphones that is :)

Can anybody tell me if any call recorder software may be installed on Samsung Omnia HD ? I have tried a few but the call voice goes off while recording? Please Help.
hey omnia hd user it's this video about omnia hd trouble is true??? watch this.
Bought this phone two weeks ago
Good things: the only HD phone which can record videos and has a 3.7 inch display with stunning sound and video.
Loads of features esp multimedia.
10 times better than N97.
Bad battery life
Dark Camera images esp one taken during night - u have to adjust the white balance for each session to make images brighter.
Sometimes u have to press the icon twice and sometimes it works on one click - strange.
Not many applications availabel to install esp there is no skype for this phone - the skype installable on this phone has only chatting options not calling.
Signal receptor is weak compared to Nokia phone.Sometimes the signal goes out although there is signal on other phones.
This is what i experienced. I live in Riyadh and bought this phone for 2500 Saudi Riyal. Thats 9375 USD.
Hope this review helps.
