SIM900A firmware update issue

i tried all firmware on gsm900 but every time i fail tell me what is solution for that

As per your image you are uploading SIM900 firmware. And the module you are using is SIM900A?
SIM900A doesn’t work with SIM900 firmware.

Also once you got the right firmware, check out the processor size, You need 32 bit firmware for 32 bit processor versions and 64 bit firmware for 64 bit processor versions of module

i have tried all those sim900a firmwares, but result is same and one more thing, simcard is required for uploading the firmware??

No, SIM card is not required for uploading the firmware.

I changed the connector from MAX232 to UART, and it worked for me

Hi Amit, Stuck in the same situation as you,with same version of firmware. Did you find a solution? If so, can you please share what you did?

Hi Ravi,

I am using SIM900A. I realize SIM900 AT documentation doesn’t talk about DTMF command DDET.
My firmware is
SIMCOM_SIM900A
Revision:1137B10SIM900A32_ST_2012

Do you know if I could upgrade its firmware to enable DDET? Or should I move upto SIM800?

How do you rate Quectel M95 against SIM800?
