Did you have to do anything special to put it on your phone? Or just load it and change the language to english

Load it, change language, remove the chinese logos etc, do a couple of tweaks to change fonts (if you don't like them) and you are ready to go.

Does anybody know if there are Release Notes or a changelog, where a detailed list of all the fixes and new features for this version is included?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



I updated from 1.30 to 1.430 yesterday. First impressions, the phone is definetly faster, faster to draw the screenand faster to pick up the Caller ID settings (I have over 4000 COntacts in my database so I stress this aprt of the system a lot).

There has been a HUGE improvement in the audio quality on my BT headset (Moto HS820) which previously was always crackly and scratchy and short-ranged, now it's as clear as crystal.

It also seems to need fewer resets to keep it happy.

So far, big thumbs up.

FYI, before you do anything, buy the LATEST version of SpriteBackup, it has a tool built in specifically for restoring after upgrading the ROM. I didn't know this and relied upon my 'Old Faithful' v1.6, which isn't supposed to work. It actually did pretty well, hanging up only at the end of the process, which was cured by removing ti from the cradle. The only thing I lost were the individual ringtones and photos caller ID assignments. A pain, but that was pretty good for software that I now learn wasn't supposed to work at all!

probabl;y a dumb question, but:

I got my mpx220 on ebay SIM unlocked (I used it on TMobile). Doing the upgrade will not sim lock it again, correct?

I was able to download the update application today.

Unfortunately after trying 4 times I couldn't get it installed! I have an email into Motorola support but was curious if anyone else had problems.

I kept getting the following message towards the end of the update 1 install:

Motorola MPx220 Sytem Update Warning!
The time taken to apply the System Update to your MPx220 device has exceeded expected limits. Check the information in the 'Details' box. If it appears to be updating, then it is likely that everything is OK and you can dismiss this warning message. However if the information remains static (typically reading 'start flash loader downloading...'), then it is likely that the update has failed in which case you should dismiss this warning message and cancel the System Update application.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Julie

Try these steps below..

1. Try a different USB port on your pc,
2. Try on another PC
3. Reinstall the USB driver (may not function properly)
4. What I did and worked: When the 'start flash loader downloading...' is displayed, after a 10-15 seconds I unplugged the USB cable and plugged it back after 5-6 Seconds and update wizard continued successfuly.

Upgrading firmware does NOT Sim lock your phone.

Thanks for your help. It sounds like this has worked for a few people. I tried all your suggestions as well as a couple of others I saw on the Derrick site and am still getting the same warning message towards the end of update 1.
Arggh!...so close and yet so far

I guess I will have to wait for Motorola to repond to my request for help but no answer so far.

I did find reference to an offline method. This sounds more complex. Does anyone suggest I try that or if I'm unable to get the easy online one working should I pass? I'm really not an idiot and followed instructions closely but don't know what I should do next.

Anyone? Thanks! Julie

IS it possible to perform the upgrade without USB cable ? Using BT.
MPX220 had problems with "motherboard" according to Motorola, and it would cost US$ 300 to replace it - bummer, so I can only charge the battery with external desktop charger and sync only with BT and IR.

Thanks

You cannot upgrade through bluetooth. Only USB (Or serial if you have the cable)

Yes although I would definately reccommend you finding the newest european firmware - it is far superior to anything else
