Hmm, I don't know. Did anyone complete this upgrade successfully?

Hi,

I was running the 1.36 EU version as well and initially had the same problem.
After following some (pictured) steps I found on - I think it was - the Chinese Yepp site I'm now running the 1.38 KR firmware.

You need to do the following:

1. When connected to the computer copy the firmware ROM file (only this one) to the root folder of the YP-T8.
2. Stop and unplug the device.
3. Connect the device to the AC adapter.
4. Turn it on - it should now start the upgrade.
5. After the upgrade has finished, connect the device to the computer again and copy the FNT and IMG files to the root folder.
6. Repeat steps 2 - 4 and you're all set.

Don't ask me why the firmware files need to be upgraded in two steps... That's how it was pictured.

Lyrics work fine with SMS v4.1
SMS v5 has a lyrics tab in the Property section but it is empty. So, I'll stick with v4.1 for now.

> what is SMS for YP-T8?

Samsung Media Studio.
It is not just for the YP-T8 but several other models as well.

Ah okay.
Now I understand what you meant :o)

It seems the SM3 firmware versions have to do with music shopping similar to iTunes. Not sure as I can't read Korean. Never tried these firmwares either.

Here's a direct link to the 1.38 SM version, in case you would like to have a look it:
