Your smartphone must be activesynced with the computer. Prepare an official ROM update for your phone.

  • Go to the folder where you extracted files from TyphoonNBFTools_0.3_SPL1010064_SPVServices.zip and run TyphoonNBFTools.exe
  • In menu select File > Open NBF... and load SPL1010064.nbf.
  • Right click on SPL1010064.nbf and select 'Emergency Flash' in popup menu.
    Your phone will probably ask a permission to run TyphoonNBFTools.dll. Press OK.
  • Press OK untill flashing started.
  • When flashing is done disable USB connections in ActiveSync Connection Settings.
  • Reboot your phone (turn it off and on). It will run into bootloader.


  • Download SPL from here.
  • Extract all the files to some folder on the PC and run Patched_RUU.exe.
  • Follow the instructions and it will flash SPL for WM6 to your phone.


  • Download WM6 from here
  • Copy WM6.bin from the archive to C:\

  • Turn off the phone and disconnect USB
  • Press Camera button and holding it insert USB connector (or holding Camera button press Power button for 1-2 seconds).
  • When "Need an UI (0)?" appears on the screen press [0] immediately. You will see tricolor screen, in the blue zone there will be "Typhoon IU" message, if you see "Typhoon XIP" you were late to press [0], start from beginning.
  • Run mtty1.42.exe from archive, choose [USB], press Enter and you will see a prompt.
  • Type "l c:\wm6.bin" without quotes and press Enter.
  • Wait untill the phone flashed and the prompt appeared again, type "ResetDevice" and press Enter to restart the phone or just turn the phone off and on.
  • ENJOY! ;)

It's great news! I'm waiting for this untill WM6 was released.
But any interested in it must know:
1) For WM5 rowence users: you MUST use THIS SPL (the version identical 109, but they NOT - you'll see Buffer small error if you try to flash WM6.bin over WM5.bin without reflash THIS SPL). I can reflash this SPL only with first instructions for going back to wm2003 and SPL 064;

2) The picture is NOT for those models! Current version for TYPHOON, not FEELER (with Joistick) that pictured. See
http://user.cityline.ru/%7Eronswens/models.html
for illustrated models versions.
With this version Feeler work well but DON'T work joistik (you can't anything to configure ;-) )
Be carefull. I'm very wait for version for Feeler (my Qtek 8020).

You can find .bin for Feeler here:

it's already russian T9 here and some improvements, but also have some bugs ;-) (like not camera button work, altrought camera work)

It's work fine for me (at this moment - little time after flash, I'll post if any unstability find later).
Backlight don't fire for any keys - only when red phone are pushed - for energy save I think...
