When kdz installs the ROM into ure phone, phone screen will turn into blue few times (Recovery Mode). Thats normal.

Have you launched Windows Enabler, and clicked on the icon near the clock ONCE ?

Ive flashed to this 2.1 ROM with no problems using KDZ_FW_UPD.

however i was just wondering.. IF, and a big IF i ever do have any problems or say the phone becaomes faulty and i need to return it under warranty..

If i re download the V10a ROM which is what was on the phone originally, can this be flashed back onto the device just as easily as the 2.1 ROM, so therefore flashing back to 1.6??

I updated with

Kp500 utils, couldn't get the KDZ updater to work.

2.1 is nice, very fast. was on V10a CPW

will swap to a uk rom when it becomes available

I like the way people say"oh yeah i updated with blah blah, works nice", and then dont tell you how they did it!

Hi, any of you guys cant work out why kdz_fw_upd just keeps failing? I found this setting after about 4 hours of fvcking about: on the phone, go to settings > sd card, and UNTICK the "mass storage only" option. Then when you plug usb back in, it installs the rest of the drivers that were missing! Stupid option why did they want to enable that as default for goodness sake!!

Managed to upgade to 2.1 just now, it runs smoothly, a lot better than 1.6. I'll be writing up a guide on thursday for those who can't do it.

It doesn't matter either way. I left mine in. You won't lost your contacts. Although sometimes it is possible, so I would take it out just to be safe.
