Multi Software Updater 5.0 issues with devices RM-944 (Nokia 108 Dual SIM) and RM-945 (Nokia 108) Multi Software Updater 5.0 has some problem with multi refurbish for devices RM-944 (Nokia 108 Dual SIM) and RM-945 (Nokia 108).
In order to fix this problem please disable Refurbish Logs in preferences. Please follow the instructions below on how to solve this problem:
– Launch “Multi Software Updater 5.0” then go to menu File –> Preferences;
– In preference switch to “Logs” tab then uncheck Refurbish Logs Enable;
– Click Ok button
– When using Multi SW Updater, the recommendation is to use it with up to five devices that are the same model and start the refurbish to every device simultaneously.
– Do not start 1st flash-round with full amount of devices – instead add gradually 2-3 devices – Fuse can be fragile when 8-16 devices at once tries to create new connection
– When using USB Hub please connect devices one by one to the ascending USB ports – it will help you to distinguish which of them had failed and needs to be recovered by Recovery plugin (check IMEI, USB Port # from UI or follow Action Report log for details)
– Do not connect\disconnect devices while other flashings are in progress – all should be finalized (successful or not) – main reason for fail is USB port enumeration done by OS when changing something
– Additional info for 16 simultaneous flashes: Based on testing with Windows Phone 8 devices please follow the following preliminary recommendations for a PC USB setup for maximum stability and timing of the USB bus:
– Use a PC that has at least four (4) independent USB 2.0 host controllers.
– Connect no more than one powered external USB hub to each host controller
– Each external hub must have its own independent power source, with the capability to supply at least 500 mA per device connected to it.
– Connect no more than four (4) devices to each external hub
