I have a lite on 24102B 5Gs4 from gateway. i tried to install the 5s5a firmware and it said i couldnt and that it only supports the 5s50-5s6z firmware. i have tried looking for the firmware from gateway but nothing exixst. any help would be greatly appriciated. Thank you Jeremy
That’s probably 'cause you’re using the official .exe firmware from Lite-On. Download either Mtkflash for DOS, or WinMtkflash for Windows, then 5S5A.BIN. Read the instructions for mtkflash/winmtkflash.
I have downloaded the mtkwinflash. i know the correct target drive to select but im having some trouble with the correct source to put in. please help
This should help.
Hmmm, I don’t suppose that you would be able to make a backup of the 5GS4 firmware before you flash, would you? You’d have to use the real mtkflash in DOS to do this as explained here: http://dhc014.rpc1.org/mtkflash.htm
I only have 5GS5 for the Gateway OEM…
