RUU on Vista: It can be done... the ultimate guide!

94 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

[teaser]Just after the launch of Windows Vista, we reported that RUUs (ROM upgrades), do not work on the OS.

Now, courtesy of sp3dev @ XDA-Developers, a solution has been found... and i've taken his basic instructions and posted them below with full screenshots and the very latest driver files extracted from ActiveSync 4.5.

News page readers can find the 16-step (not as bad as it sounds!) walkthrough after the jump! :D

P[/teaser]

Before starting: Your device needs to be connected to the PC, and in BOOTLOADER mode.

Step 1 of 16: Extract this zip file to a memorable location on your machine (e.g. the desktop). This is the Activesync 4.5 RTM USB driver.

VistaRUU.zip

Step 2 of 16: Run 'Windows Mobile Device Center', and click 'Connection Settings'.

vistaruu1.jpg

Step 3 of 16: Uncheck the 'Allow USB Connections' box, and select 'OK'.

vistaruu2.jpg

Step 4 of 16: Run 'Services' by clicking the Start Orb and typing 'Services', and ensure the 'Windows Mobile-based connectivity' and Windows Mobile 2003-based connectivity' services are started. If they are not, click the service name and press the 'play' button on the top bar.

vistaruu3.jpg

Step 5 of 16: Load 'Device Manager' by clicking the Start Orb and typing 'Device Manager'. Expand the 'Mobile devices' section and click the 'HTC USB Sync' (or similarly named) item.

vistaruu4.jpg

Step 6 of 16: Click the 'Action' menu and select 'Update Driver Software'.

vistaruu5.jpg

Step 7 of 16: Click 'Browse my computer for driver software'.

vistaruu6.jpg

Step 8 of 16: Click 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'.

vistaruu7.jpg

Step 9 of 16: Click 'Have Disk'.

vistaruu8.jpg

Step 10 of 16: Click 'Browse', and browse to the location where you extracted the ZIP file in Step 1.

vistaruu9.jpg

Step 11 of 16: Double click 'wceusbsh.inf'.

vistaruu10.jpg

Step 12 of 16: Select 'HTC USB Sync' from the list, and click 'Next'.

vistaruu11.jpg

Step 13 of 16: Wait while your driver is installed. ;)

vistaruu12.jpg

vistaruu13.jpg

Step 14 of 16: Run 'Task Manager' by clicking the Start Orb and typing 'taskmgr'. Then find the 'WMDC.EXE' item, and click 'End Process'.

vistaruutaskmgr.jpg

Step 15 of 16: Install your update! Everything should now run fine! You just need to bear in mind the final step when you want to start syncing normally again...

Step 16 of 16: In 'Windows Mobile Device Center', re-enable the 'allow USB connections' checkbox you disabled in Step 2.

Well, I worked through all the steps, but I just get:

ROMUpdateUtility MFC Application has stopped working

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

Any ideas? Might try rebooting and doing it again...

I have try all case this above, but it not work. My Vista is still show message "ROMUpdateUtility MFC Application has stopped working".

However, I'm installed Virtual Machine (Parallels or VMWare Machine) on Vista and setup WinXP on this VM and setup MS Async 4.5 and Uprom good work.

Note : Don't install Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, it not support USB port.

Good Luck !

Ah this is just for updating. Theres no official WM6 ROM out for the 9000 yet so that may (possibly) be why you're having compatibility problems.

Strange...I get the same response with 1 ROM, but with another, it works fine.
