batal - yes the QTek 8300 Rom works on the T-Mobile SDA phone.
I followed the steps outlined at http://tech.bryandavis.net/
, which are based off of mfurse's Qtek 8310.
Thanks to mfurse and Bryan
(mine also looked like it locked at 93% and on the phone the progress turned to red instead of green. I waited and about 4-5 mins later it continued the upgrade)
Everything works great..
It took me awhile to reunlock the phone and find how to change the shortcut links.
The steps I took to unlock the phone.
For some reason the regeditSTG.exe file would not copy to the phone after flashing. Just a a lark I copied over the zip and then extracted it on the phone .... that worked.
next I followed the same registry steps that unlocked the phone to install the update.
This allowed me to run the SDA_ApplicationUnlock.exe (not sure if needed, but did it anyway)
And now able to run unsigned apps.
To change the shortcut lnks, I used cenotepad.exe as explained at http://www.howardfor...ad.php?t=858861
yes it worked even though the windows dir is read only
The only annoyance that I have is that the carrier always show "Get More...".
If anyone how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated.
Just wanted to give some back to those that gave to me.
