Just finished updating my jet S8003 last night.. & I was really happy of the outcome! Cooool!

I have applied this update to S8000, very happy with it. These are general steps: 1.) go to darkforest website and register. 2.) login and search darkforest for "flash guides" 3.) follow steps there, it will involve you downloading both firmware and updater program.

Use the RU file only if you want Russian widgets. Other than that, they are the same.

I have the s8003 and flashed it to XEII2 firmware. It does have a lot of improvements. I previously have the DXIG2 firmware. You just have to follow the instructions from Darkforest to the dot, and make sure you have a back up of your contacts, and internet settings.

Make sure you also download the old firmware, so you can flash it back in case you have to use your phone's warranty.

The S8000 and S8003 are the same phone and the same firmware will work BUT S8000T,M,B are not the same and you will loose your 3G support.

I GUESS NOT.. It's not safe for S8003.

Sooo! Is it safe to update our JET S8003 to this latest firmware?

The firmware is not in beta, it has been released and you can buy a Jet with this firmware on it. NPS Updater is still in beta so you can not get this firmware from it directly.

Asian countries should also not take that risk of updating their firmware.. The latest firware(S8000XEII2) is not intended for Jet S8003.
It's only for European version. We'll just have to wait for the final firmware.
