Samsung u740 (Dual Flip) Hacking/Applications

Windows XP

When you plug your phone into the computer, it'll recongize the device as "SAMSUNG CDMA Technologies" and windows wont have any luck finding the appropriate driver for it. I tried several drivers for different samsung phones, before I found this one that works

Leave it to SPRINT to supply us Bell Mobility customers with a good driver

http://www4.sprint.com/pcsbusiness/support/downloads/index.jsp

Choose your version of windows (who knows, maybe this works for other versions of windows as well!
One of the items in the list will be "Sprint PCS Connection Manager for Phone as Modem/USB Cables". It is 26MB and the version as of writing this is 3.07.040

First, make sure your phone is NOT plugged in to the computer (I did say it was impossible to fuck up your phone doing this, didnt I?)

Download the driver to your system, and install it, reboot your computer just for kicks

Now when you plugin your phone, watch the little "new hardware found" bubbles, and it'll flash through a bunch of different stuff, adding the modems and whatnot. Go into your Device Manager, on my system, I ended up with "Ports (COM & LPT)" -> "SAMSUNG Mobile Modem Diagnostic Serial Port (WDM) (COM5)", and "Modems" -> "SAMSUNG Mobile Modem".

The device isn't listed anymore, but the samsung driver for package from sprint is pretty generic. it didn't list the device in the install, but works fine.

I just posted a torrent with a number of programs mentioned on this site, plus a couple I found handy. It also includes a full set of drivers for windows, a result of way too much googling. Check it out at [url]http://thepiratebay.org/tor/4095279[/url]. Hope it helps.

Subject: Can't get the sprint drivers to install, New Hardware wizard only finds incompatible CDMA driver from my a860
I can't get the New Hardware wizard to find anything.. I had an a860 that worked (although not for very long on my PC - the laptop works fine with same driver) with a CDMA driver i got from bitpim. Now my u740 always comes up with "Samsung CDMA Tech" and the never is able to install anything not manually nor automatically so, now what?
