I tried changing my reg to the following....

1001 - 1
1005 - 16
1017 - 144

Didn't work... so I tried this as suggested...

1001 - 1
1005 - 40
1017 - 144

This didn't work either. For some unknown reason I can't find any way to app unlock this phone. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. I would like to get the OmapClock working so that I can use TCMCP more effectively without video stuttering.

Thanks much.

I don't care much about the sim unlock, just the app unlock

Try running this unlocker first:

http://advent.uw.hu/...CUnlock-CVS.zip

Then run the SDA_ApplicationUnlock.

Hello,

Could you (or anyone who knows) include which of the "i-mate" upgrades we can use? Also any improvements/complications we might see from it? I went to htcamerica and got the newest firmware there, but I don't think this is AKU2? Or is it? Thanks! Keep up the great work!


Here is the imate link:

ftp://ftp.clubimate.com/

I installed this version on my 2125:

i-mate_SP5_WWE_2.5.331.2.zip

Some improvements:
The bluetooth file transfer is much more reliable;
You can now browse to websites that have frames - the installed browser did not support frames;
Overall stability of the operating system is MUCH improved - I'd have to restart the phone at least once a day with the old ROM, with this new one I've restarted maybe 3 times in the past month;
Push email from Exchange Server is supposed to work (but I can't test as our IT guys refuse to add SP2 to the server ;) );
You don't have all of the add-on Cingular garbage such as the Express Mail, all their backgrounds etc. and so on;
MSN messenger seems a lot more stable;
The Comm manager has a lot of additional controls (including WIfi, which jsut doesn't do anything on the 2125 since there's not wifi built in);
I kept losing service with the old ROM, wherein there were 4 bars, but the phone said "Searching" - once it was a faulty SIM card, but other than that I haven't had that happen with the new ROM;

The only weird thing about the different ROM is that the E icon doesn't show up by default. There is a registry edit that can be done to make it display, otherwise all you'll see is the G whether you're in an EDGE area or GPRS. Actually 2 weird things, when I'm using the phone as a bluetooth modem, I don't get the opposing arrows in the upper-right corner indicating it is in modem mode - it stays as the E or G.

That's about all I can think of right now. If I remember more I'll add to this post. But I can't stress enough about how the stability has increased - I was getting really frustrated with the factory ROM, and had actually called Cingular for a warranty replacement before I tried the new ROM, and with the iMate ROM I ended up sending the warranty replacement back.

You can go back to the oem rom very easily. the original rom is found at htcamerica.net and installs without any unlocking etc.
As far as changing to the new, there are good instructions on this site under the heading "Imate rom on q-tek 8300" or something close to that. Basically, you app- unlock the phone, then you have to use the spv-Services app to change the phone's cid. then you simply run the rom update executable to install the new version. If these instructions are not helpful, i'll post better ones later, i'm using my phone now and my thumbs are getting tired. ;)

I still don't understand the question. Why would you want to make the phone think that the EDGE connection is a WiFi connection??

I don't see how it is possible anyway.

Hi there,

About ClearVue putting ClearVue on a Storage Card, I have created a CAB file for it (see attachment, phone must be unlocked). You have to put the files in '\Storage Card\Program Files\ClearVue Suite', create new shortscuts and run the CAB file to restore the correct file associations.

A more detailed description is online at http://www.ruwebit.net/article/138/

By the way, if you (for example) have installed a n I-Mate ROM on your QTek device ClearVue won't install anymore. The article above also explains to get around that.


I went on the website fror instructions on installing clearvue suite on my 2125 after i upgraded to imate sp5 rom, but i'm not sure i have the original cab file you mentioned, all i have is the file attached to this message which i coulden't unpack to anything, could you please help me with that, or do those instructions not apply to my phone (cingular 2125)?

Attached Files

Ok, so I ran the update and everything's ok except for one problem:

I can't install ClearVue Suite because the OEM version is locked to the Cingular rom - any way around this?

You can go back to the oem rom very easily. the original rom is found at htcamerica.net and installs without any unlocking etc.

Did you formerly run Clearvue from the SD card? If you did, then the executables and all will still be there unless you reformatted or uninstalled prior to changing ROMs. You just need to create new shortcuts to the executables, and they will work just fine. BTW, they should be in the Program Files folder, and would be in the ClearvVue Suite subfolder if you followed the instructions on this thread, or will be in a "Windows" folder if you didn't rename it.
