How to Upgrade/Flash Your Samsung Wave 525 Firmware

by Sahil Umatia

When I upgraded my Bada firmware to S5253DDKC1, the camera firmware was bricked and some of the icons were changed and renamed to other languages. The camera worked fine before upgrading the firmware, but after upgrading the firmware, the Camera failed to work. I took my phone to Samsung service centre with my phone under warranty, but they just back off and said that the software through which you updated your firmware doesn’t comes under warranty. This means that the official software, Kies provided by Samsung itself is void. So ,there was no other option for me to wait for next firmware update.

Finally, there was recently a firmware upgrade available to S5253DDKH1. The icons were back, with their respective names, but the camera still failed to work. I tried restarting my phone again, but it never restarted. The phone was now completely dead. With no other options left, I flashed my firmware to a previous version. Thanks to SamFirmware for providing the firmware files and flashing tool. It wasn’t easy for me to flash my wave 525, as I was flashing the phone for first time.

I had to download two firmwares from samfirmware, because one of the firmware was incomplete. So I flashed my phone with a customized firmware, with a combination of two firmwares.  The firmware should have the following files:

You can download my customized firmware as a Back Up firmware, but not as Final firmware. You should upgrade your firmware through Kies after flashing your phone. See the video tutorial below to flash or upgrade you Samsung wave S525 firmware.
