I've been reading up on how to flash my SN-324F with FW version U200 for the past two hours. I am running a Gateway 200 ARC laptop with no floppy drive. My goal is just to get it to RPC1.
I downloaded the firmware from:
I also have downloaded the MTKFLASH utility and created a DOS boot CD (my unit has no floppy drive). My concern running the FW upgrade from the CD would be that the drive might become inactive during the flash So i am planning on flashing it from the C drive.
I am now at the stage where i am ready to apply the RPC1 firmware upgrade but want to make sure that i do it correctly so that i don't have to invest 70 hours repairing the harm that i have caused the drive.
I have tried running the following commands from the C drive running from a bootable CD but mtkflash seems to freeze:
mtkflash 3 r /m /b backup.bin
mtkflash 3 w /b u200mmm.bin
I am clueless as how to proceed.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
