The Samsung Tocco is a smartphone and, like many smartphones, it requires frequent updates and service upgrades. Features include USB support, a touch screen, Bluetooth and an on-screen keyboard. The Samsung PC Studio can be used to update the Samsung Tocco or a manual update can be performed by you. Be warned that by flashing your Samsung Tocco you'll delete all personal files, contacts, messages and any information saved to the phone's memory. All settings are reverted back to their factory defaults.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn on your Samsung Tocco and type "#1234#" into the phone dialer. Press the dial key and wait for the phone to display your current firmware. Write down the firmware information for later use if you'd like to restore the phone to a previous firmware.

  2. 2

    Download the specific firmware that you'll like to install on your Samsung Tocco from your phone carrier or provider. The firmware file should only be downloaded from a trusted source such as Samsung, T-Mobile or Sprint. Using any other untrusted could cause irreparable damage to your Samsung Tocco.

  3. 3

    Press and hold down the volume lowering button on the left side of the Samsung Tocco, and then the camera button which is found on the right side. Hold the power button located at the bottom right corner of the phone. Press and hold all three buttons simultaneously. A start-up screen will appear in black and red. This is the boot loader screen.

  4. 4

    Install the firmware software to your computer. Open the "multiloader.exe" and select the second row of commands that are displayed. This program is used to alter the settings on the phone once the phone is connected to the computer. Check all of the check boxes that are displayed to reset the setting on the phone in those specific sectors.

  5. 5

    Connect your phone to the computer and perform a port search so the software locates the phone. Once the software denotes that the phone has been found, click on the download button and the firmware will begin to upgrade. Do not touch or remove the phone from the computer until the upgrade is completed. Doing so might cause file system corruption. Remove the phone and press and hold the power button.
